Memoirs of a Geisha - book cover picture

I did not expect to like this book--somehow reviews rarely compel me to read anything. But a friend loaned it to me, insisting that it was one of her favorites, and I must read it to discuss with her. Far from the dry read of a textbook, the main character quickly established herself as someone to care about. From her experiences, pieces of the time and culture flowed naturally, making it feel like a trip with a friend through an entirely alien culture. This is one of the best book's that I have ever read.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4) - book cover picture

Andrew Kron This fourth book of this seven part series is, out of the four, the best. This year is the Triwizard Tournament. One person from each of the schools: Durmstrang, Beuxbutons, and Hogwarts will participate in the Triwizard Tournament. When all the names are called out of the Goblet of Fire another name comes out. The name read Harry Potter. Harry's adventure is just starting with the wizard tournament first and many suprises later. This is a great book and I would recommend it to everyone.

Best book on baby's sleep

Book title: Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child

Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child - book cover picture

In my opinion, this is absolutely the best book out there tohelp new parents with their babies sleep issues. I had what I considered to be a colicy baby until she was eight weeks old--on that day I read this book and everything changed for us completely. I now have an incredibly happy baby who rarely cries--because she is now getting the proper amount of sleep. People say I have an easy baby and I attribute it all to this book. And boy did I try everything--I even resorted to Babywise. This method does not associate eating with sleeping and it is much much easier to attempt with your baby. I recommend this to everyone I know and people are always thanking me profusely for telling them about this book and Dr. Weissbluth's ideas. I hope you have the success I have had. This isn't to say that every day is a walk in the park, but I don't know where I would be with out it. Thank you Dr. Weissbluth!

Dave Barry Slept Here: A Sort of History of the United States - book cover picture

This is a dead-on satire of a history text, minus the "really dull parts" (treaties, dates, actual facts, etc) but including such gems as "Elizabeth, who was called the Virgin Queen because it was not considered a smart move to call her the Really Ugly Queen..." And so on, and on, and on...there's too much fun here to quote in detail, but I especially like the Founding Fathers' letter from Visa ("if you do not pay...we will regretfully have to return you to British rule"), the South's attempt to recruit help, pre-slavery ("Are you that special kind of guy or gal who's willing to work long hours for no pay...plus we get to keep your children?") and of course the Carter years ("A Relieved Nation Learns It Does Not Actually NEED a President"). This book -- like all Barry's work -- should be mandatory reading for anyone in imminent danger of taking life too seriously.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1) - book cover picture

I have recently started reading Harry Potter and I learned my lesson that you can't rush temerariously into these stories you have to give them time to grow and htat time is usually little because once you learn of Harry's incredible likeability you fall into the Harry Potter craze and if you are anything like me you'll say to yourself I maybe joining the "game" late but at least I'm joining and trust me every single second spent reading this and the other three novels is worth it and the pages you practically devour with glee will be locked away in your memory as some of the most enchanting things you ahve ever read even if you are five even if you are five hundred you will love Harry Potter [...] it's hard not to love at least one element of the Harry Potter novels.

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents America (The Book): A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction - book cover picture

If you enjoy the Daily Show (I watch it religiously) or if you like witty publications (the Onion, for example) then I suggest you read America the Book. Other people have elaborate, well thought out reasons for liking or disliking this book. I simply love the show and I think this text translates into print all the crazy things Jon and the gang poke fun at every week. It's observant, irreverent, and amazingly detailed (you really have to read over every sidebar, caption, and footnote if you don't want to miss anything). If you like the show, you'll like the book. Bonus points for an intro by Thomas Jefferson...

An illumination for some, a deeper delving for others

"This Book of Starres" : Learning to Read George Herbert - book cover picture

White is an perceptive reader of poetry and theological reflections who has his own idiosyncratic but highly accesible style; all at the service of making George Herbert's poetry shine more brightly for others...not at all to stand in the spotlight himself. The "self-consuming artifacts" that Herbert constructs to effectively communicate religious truth and human uncertainty are well represented by White's own writing style, a steady candleflame that slowly and inobtrusively fades into the brighter dawn of Herbert's meditations rising into the reader's consciousness. I would recommend this book equally strongly for someone who has never heard of Herbert, or for a long-time lover of his poems and essays.

A Wild Sheep Chase : A Novel (Contemporary Fiction, Plume) - book cover picture

Imagine a Crime Noir novel set in the '70's Japan, and then throw in a little David Lynchian eccentricity and you'd have the skeleton for this page turner of a book. In effect a detective story, the main character is really an advertising agent. He is apathetically walking away from a lackluster marriage, when he begins dating an average looking, part time prostitute. He considers her mediocre in nearly all senses except for her extraordinary ears, which provide her another income as an ear model. he is insisted into an undeniable job by a politician who remains nameless the whole story, referred to only as "the boss". Like all good crime noir, we follow this charismatic protagonist through interlude after interlude. this book is as absorbing as it is eccentric and off the wall. Murakami has written a book that entirely engaged me, and that i still think about afterwards.

The Return of the King (The Lord of the Rings, Part 3) - book cover picture

The final part in the three part Lord of the Rings, the Return of the King finds our heroes in a tight fix. The forces of Darkness are on the march: Frodo is captive in Mordor, Gondor is under siege, and the remainder of the fellowship, lead by Aragorn, is missing. In other words, things aren't looking good. The plot, once again, is masterful. You can't get any better than a story conceived by a professor of English Literature at Oxford. Tolkien is a wordsmith equal to the best of them. However, he doesn't take three pages to say something which can be said in a paragraph. There's something to be said for brevity.The characters have been maturing throughout the novel, and the third part is no different. Frodo is coming into his own, as are the remaining Hobbits. The question is, will they be able to step forward and do something epic in nature???
