Visits : Caring for an Aging Parent: Reflections and Advice - book cover picture

All caregivers, myself included, must reach out for support in these difficult times. Reaching out can sometimes be the hardest thing to do, and yet so essential. It is important to go beyond "coping" and into "living." This book is "living." It is alive with hope in all its many shapes and forms. It is thought provoking, compassionate, beautiful and practical. I have referred "Visits" to so many people, and refer to it myself very often.

Much more than another "page-turner!"

Book title: Operation: Fantasy Plan
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Operation: Fantasy Plan - book cover picture

Generally, I want more substance from a novel than a spy thriller has to offer. Not so with Peter Gilboy's debut, OPERATION FANTASY PLAN. This book is a beautifully crafted, thoughtful, intriguing, tastefully sensual piece. Set in Washington and Thailand, the novels explores the implications of a complex scheme to entangle Japanese leaders in compromising sexual encounters that will later be used to coerce information and cooperation with the CIA.

The book's central character, Peter Gaines, is at times a hero and at times a scoundrel. Gilboy artfully extracts the complex and conflicting loyalties, thoughts and passions of Gaines as he explores the ethical limits of what the CIA can and will do to protect our national (economic) interests. A must read for those who bemoan the loss of the Soviet threat and for those who might enjoy a page turner if it had something of substance to say.

Schoolgirls : Young Women, Self Esteem, and the Confidence Gap - book cover picture

This book is an important read for anyone who ever was a girl or who ever has known a girl. It gave me much insight into the values that I was taught as about gender and also what others learned about the subject. This book is fascinating and easy to relate to. It explores the hidden curriculum we learn in school, from parents, and from the media about what it means to be male or female; who has power and who does not; who is valued and who is not. It made me see the world differently and in a more enlightened way.

A book that has epiphanous messages on many levels.

Binding: Hardcover
To Kill a Mockingbird - book cover picture

Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird" is not just a novel but a journey of life through the eyes of a 6-year old tomboy named Scout. Scout's observations are devastatingly honest and on target. Lee has taken the social rubble known as life and transformed this miasma of emotion and action into a comprehensible, moving tale. The truths and perceptions in this novel compare to the distrubing truths in such major modern works as Heller's "Catch-22" and Saul Bellow's "Humbolt's Gift," although Lee has less of an obvious jagged edge to her work. This novel is a must read for any serious student of literature.

Wild Magic: The Immortals (Immortals (Paperback)) - book cover picture

I just loved this book! I must have read this a million times! It's not just a kid book either. There's all kinds of "grown up" things in there. I really liked the way Tamora Pierce kept former charcters in the book, King Jonathon, Alanna, George etc. I had been wondering what would happen to them and now I know! This book just sets the scene for the rest of the three books following it.
Daine is a typical young girl and I feel like I can relate to her dispite her slight unordinaryness (is that a word?) namely talking to animals.
This is a great book, if you didn't like it, you must not have really read it, because everyone who reads this HAS to like it!

Facercise: The Dynamic Muscle-Toning Program for Renewed Vitality and a More Youthful Appearance - book cover picture

I was curious about Face Exercise and wanted to see what it is
all about. I bought 2 of the Facercise books, went through them
and found alot of helpful information. They are easy and for
the most part alot of fun to use. I did have alittle trouble
with 2 of the exercises and called Ms Maggio she went through
the 2 exercises with me and now I'm a complete believer. I don't
spend big amounts of time with this, sometimes in the car, sometimes watching TV. It's nice doing something that takes
such a small amount of time, makes me feel good and I can
certainly see some changes. If anything my skin has a more
youthful appearance, with more circulation. Great Books

Boating Magazine's Insider's Guide to Buying a Powerboat: Featuring Tips and Traps for the Smart Boat Buyer - book cover picture

This book is extremely informative and well organized. Every step in the boat buying process is covered in terms easily understood by a first-time boat buyer (such as myself). After reading this book, I feel confident that I will be able to (1) find, negotiate, and purchase my first boat (at a great deal), and (2) be able to identify those boats/deals which are best left alone. I highly recommend this book!

A Kiss to Remember - book cover picture

I always enjoy Madieros's books because she doesn't write about perfect people, but about people with flaws just like me. They always grow and learn from their mistakes while we enjoy their fun and touching stories. Even when Laura messed up, I found myself wanting everything to come out okay for her. And Stirling sure made my heart beat faster! I was so glad they found each other. I finished the book with tears in my eyes and a sigh of happiness. I hope she does Lottie's story next.

Book of Nightmares (Diadem: A Fantasy Mystery, No. 6) - book cover picture

I just loved this book. I read all of the Diadem books and I loved everyone of them. I don't know why he didn't keep writing them. If anyone is thinking of buying this book or any of the others you'll love it as much as I did. It's great for people of all ages. If he started writing the Diadem books again I'd be the first inline to get them. I love to read all kinds of books but I'm still very picky. You won't be disapointed if you get this book.
