More Tales of the City - book cover picture

After reading and enjoying Tales of the City, I rushed out to buy More Tales the next day....and it was even better! The second book in the series has more heart, more laughs, and a storyline that rivals any soap opera! I couldn't stop reading, because so many plots were unwinding at different paces. An extremely enjoyable read (I've never given a five star review before!), and I cannot wait for Further Tales, which I might go buy today. If you read Tales, you're doing yourself a great disservice if you don't read More Tales!

Book title: Worship Evangelism
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Worship Evangelism - book cover picture

This book seriously changed my perspective on the role of worship in the church. I had always had a sneaking suspicion that perhaps a church that effectively worshipped would have an undeniable attraction to people desperately seeking something "real."In true, Biblical worship there is much power, and Ms. Morgenthaler does an admirable job covering the subject, including some great case study data.

3 Stars For This Is Pure Ignorance.

Book title: Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism - book cover picture

Weber's Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism is CLASSIC - and should be a mandatory read for every student of sociology. Unfortunately, the classic literature of sociology isn't emphasized enough in today's educational institutions. Students are entering the real world without the foundation of social prophets and coming up with their own ideas of "what the world is coming to," and taking credit for ideology that has long been debated and written down by masterminds such as Weber. Pay attention! What is this book really about? This is a revolutionary work discussing critically the causes and effects of sociological chance, and how the sociology of religion has changed meaning because of the philosophy we now base our ideas on. Anyone interested in postmodern theory, the iron cage of bureaucracy, rationalization, and even symbolic interactionism should read this before continuing to literature of modern sociological thought.

Without a doubt, this is her best work.

Deception - book cover picture

The hero is dashing and not enthrallingly handsome, while the heroine is sweet and spunky. They had a wonderful chemistry. I particularly enjoyed seeing her heroine interact with small children and really be a mother figure. It was great to see the main characters hold back on their passion because small ears might be listening. It was most realistic yet so wonderfully fanciful. I could read it (and do) again and again.

Really, Really, REALLY Good!

Book title: Transfusion Medicine
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Transfusion Medicine - book cover picture

This book, like the first edition, is a truly excellent review of basic concepts in Transfusion Medicine, with enough advanced concepts and details to satisfy pathology residents studying for board exams. Dr. McCullough has gone out of his way to produce a book that is as current as can be, reads easily, and is just plain stuffed full of practical and theoretical information! An added bonus is that since Dr. McCullough (a former editor of the journal TRANSFUSION) authored all but one of the chapters, the book does not suffer from the uneven writing that damages too many Blood Banking books. He is a terrific writer, and this is an outstanding book.

The Burn Journals (Ira Children's Book Awards (International Reading Association)) - book cover picture

If you've ever wondered what goes around in the head of a 14 year old -- you will find out in the Burn Journals. The frankness, folly,freakyness and funny world that turns upside down in the flash of a match. The mystery of what this young mans says out laud -- and what he actually thinks -- is the strength that is a reflection of this generation. The humor an warmth of Brent's and his family's journey will touch you.

There is also a very surreal quality to Brent's fateful decision that results in the remainder of the book becoming VERY REAL. It is a new genre and I recommend The Burn Journal.

My Side of the Mountain - book cover picture

This was one of the best books that I had ever read. I could not put it down. I hardly ever got bored, it was so adventureus. How Sam lived off the berries, nuts, deer, and some plants and also fish and mussels. He met a college professor at his tree (that he lives in) and Bando (the man he met)ended up staying for christmas. He would bring up the news articles about the wild boy (Sam) so sam could read them. They were trying to find him to take him home (COPS). If you would like to find out the ending, read this book.

I consider it the best modern novel I have read.

Secret History : A Novel - book cover picture

I bought the book off the shelf with no previous knowledge of book or author. I have re-read it many times, have passed it on to friends and suggest it to anyone who is an avid reader. It kept me completely enthralled. It is truly a masterpiece. The way the characters came alive was remarkable. I felt that I truly knew them - each and every one. I read three novels a week and many times I have thought why I could actually consider this book the best (other than the classics) that I have read. Wonderful story-telling. I keep waiting for her next book. Please, Donna, with such a talent you owe it to the world of literature. Thank you.

Best paperback English-Spanish dictionary!

Diccionario español/inglés, inglés/español: New World - book cover picture

As a Spanish teacher, I've reviewed several low-cost dictionaries to recommend to my students. This one is the best I've seen as it not only gives the word, but the usage or sense in which it is used. For example, a student wrote that he liked Saturday because it was his "day off". The dictionary he used only had the Spanish words listed in alphabetical order, so he wrote "mi d?a apagado". Had he used this dictionary, he would have known that "apagado" refers to lights that are extinguished.

Tom Brown's Field Guide to Nature and Survival for Children - book cover picture

This book can be useful to people of any religion. As a Christian, I was not offended, although I agree that the author definitely does not share my spiritual beliefs. We can all benefit from connecting to nature and developing a greater level of understanding/awareness/respect of the beauty that surrounds us... especially as children. Do not pass by this wonderful book because of a religious bias. Remove the wheat from the chaff, absorb the good information and ignore the rest.
