Tempting Danger (Berkley Sensation) - book cover picture

This is the first book I have read by Eileen Wilks. Now I am eagerly anticipating the sequel to be pulished on Nov. 1st - "Mortal Danger". "Tempting Danger" was interesting, and a fun story, with enough twists to keep it from being just another shapeshifter story. Lily Yu, the heroine, is tough, and smart, and Chinese, so her family is fun to hear about. Rule Turner, the hero, is sexy and werewolf royalty, so this is a satisfying pair. Ms Wilks writes well, keeping you drawn into the story. I look forward to more books about Lily and Rule and their fascinating families. If you enjoyed Rebecca York's werewolf series, you will really like this one, too.

Mozart: Clarinet Concerto (Cambridge Music Handbooks) - book cover picture

An excellant book for the clarinet player and Mozart enthusiast. It provides clear concise information regarding the conception of the concerto as well as the various people who helped shape the piece. Included is a comparision of the concerto today and the original version and how it has been modified in the 200+ years of it's existance due to the changes made to the clarinet, etc. A must have piece of literature, as a clarinet player and advancing musician, I highly reccommend it.

An excellent "thinking" book

River : One Man's Journey Down the Colorado, Source to Sea - book cover picture

This is a book for those looking to take some quiet time to think about life, the river, and the environment. It is not a logistical book for those wishing to duplicate the experience. Fletcher's journey reveals the river from the perspective of an elderly man traveling at a slow pace (6 months) who is absorbing the spirit and feel of the Colorado and reflecting upon a lifetime of wilderness travel. It is slow, methodical, and at times a little tedious, but rich in detail and thoughtfulness.This is a book for the thoughtful and reflective, not the pump-me-up, thrill seeker. The little mistakes the author makes are usually pointed out by himself, and they mark the book as authentic in that Colin is a lot like the rest of us in his amateur knowledge of the details of wildlife. He differs, though, in his ability to tell the story, a unique story, of adventure and life.

Trading for a Living: Psychology, Trading Tactics, Money Management - book cover picture

This books is just the ammo you need when you tell your wife you are going to start managing the retirement fund ;) All kidding aside this is a great book that covers a lot of bases, Psychology, Trading Tactics Money management. Each subject could have been broken down and anaylzed indepth by itself. Fortunately Dr. Elder is very skilled at weaving in and out of each subject and clearly gives a solid introductory to intermediate explaination of each subject. Most likely from his psychology background, Dr. Elder puts a lot of emphasis on self-assessment, which sometimes bogs down the flow, but like most necessary evils is highly useful.After being involved with futures trading for 11 years and writing several books on the subject I still find books like Dr.Elder's inspirational and important in reminding me why I got involved with this in the first place.

The Namesake: A Novel - book cover picture

This book was amazing. I don't know if it's because I'm a Bengali-American girl myself who can empathize with Gogol's predicament of dealing with two names and thus two different personalities or if it's just because the story is a great read. Lahiri's small details are wonderful and at points I feel as if she was writing about people in my own family. Though at points the story seemed to move a little too fast and things ended without real explanations, overall the story didn't fail to keep me enthralled. This is the kind of novel I've been waiting for since I read her short stories in Interpreter of Maladies. It has it's moments of sadness and a whole lot of confusion but in the end, it leaves a good feeling in your heart. I would recommend this book to everyone, but especially to all the other second generation Indians out there who've felt like they've never quite fit in anywhere.

I read what I consider literature vs. fiction and I loved this book--I thought Carrie, the narrator was brave to make such a huge change in her stagnant life--I ,however ,did not agree with her choice (you must read this book to find out THAT). However, if the last chapter is read very carefully one can see that there are other definite possibilities in her future -watch for references to a postcard--This book will always be an all time favorite with me!

Screwtape Letters is a Masterpiece of Christian Literature

Book title: The Screwtape Letters
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Screwtape Letters - book cover picture

C.S. Lewis scores five stars with me with this book. The book is funny, instructive and impactful. The book is a series of letters from a senior demon to a newly assigned demon. The letters give instruction and evaluation to the junior demon on how to "poison" his assigned human or patient.

Although how demons work in the spirit world has never been revealed to us, the scene that Lewis paints seems most realistic. Lewis depicts a world where the demon constantly monitors the activities of its patient and uses every opportunity to whisper lies, spin half truths and distort reality. It gave me pause when I considered the possibility that the world really is this way.

By presenting the schemes of the demons, Lewis is really teaching us how to live in the way of God. I found myself taking some of these lessons to heart.

God bless the soul of C. S. Lewis. I strongly recommend this book for any follower of Jesus.

Running with Scissors - book cover picture

This is a fantastic book because it is so outrageous but at the same time so real. It takes really ugly subjects like teen sexual abuse, emotional abuse, and prescription drug abuse and offsets them with an understated humor that makes them not only palatable but entertaining. However never does the author disrespect himself or the trauma of abuse. It happened. It was bad. He suffered. But he survived. There are many books that are outrageous. There are many books that talk about abuse. There are many books that are entertaining. There are many books that are educational. Very few books though accomplish all those things at once. This is a book that sits in the rare company of A Child Called It, Nightmares Echo, White Oleander, and My Fractured Life.

The Trouble Begins: A Box of Unfortunate Events, Books 1-3 (The Bad Beginning; The Reptile Room; The Wide Window) - book cover picture

This series follows the Baudelaire orphans, (Violet, Sunny, and Klaus), through a series of narrow escapes from their villianous relative, Count Olaf, who hopes to cease the inheritance they had left to them by the departure of their parents in a fire. Mr. Poe is in charge of finding relatives to drop them off with, and his choices never turn out for the best, thanks to Olaf.
BR>These books make a delightful read, but aren't in the end very cheering or uplifting, as the author continually points out. As someone pointed out to me, it's like 'a more lighthearted Dickens', you can decide what that means. If your looking for something a little more dreary and entertaining than "Harry Potter", this series is for you.
