At Home with Books : How Booklovers Live with and Care for Their Libraries - book cover picture

Just when I thought I was a collector, I collected this book and realized I have a long way to go. Books are in every room of my house except the bathroom. I love them piled high on tables, on shelves, in baskets, on the floor, in the kitchen cupbaords - wherever they fit and don't fit. To live with books is to make room for them wherever necessity is - sleep with them, eat with them, read your books aloud to your books.This book has some pretty interesting people (celebrities even) opening their homes and their obsessions to your wide gaze. I applaud them for it. Don't make your home a fire hazard - but overall excessive book-collecting is harmless..compared to some habits. Friends have pulled this one off my coffee table and sat engrossed. You will to!"Classics are books that everyone knows, but no one read." -Mark Twain

A Rose in Winter - book cover picture

I absollutely loved this romance novel!! Ms. Woodiwiss enchanted me with the way in which she wrote the story. It was like reading beauty and the beast, but with much more detail and romance. Arianne's father just had to mary her off to a saxon Lord who was masked. It was claimed he was disfigured, but no one could be sure how he became that way. She was forced to mary this man, but her heart leaped everytime another man gave her special attentions. This other man was quite hamsome enough to tempt Arianne. Yet as the faithful wife of the man she had vowed to mary, her heart was torn between both men, since the gentleness, kindness , and love the beast demonstrated toward Arianne, caused her heart to begin to melt towards him. The real question was: Who would Arianne end of with? The culmination of this book will absollutely shock you. It was an unforgettable novel, and I believe, one of Kathleen E. Woodiwiss's best works yet...

The Bear Comes Home - book cover picture

The Bear Comes Home is one of the best books about jazz music in a long, long time. The book seamlessly melds English and storytelling with jazz, and it works. He depicts the linguistic games of jazz players spot-on -- there's an exchange on a tour bus where his (much younger) band is goofing on him, trying to see if they can psych him out -- and he comes through (unexpectedly) with a verbal riff that answers his band's perennial question: "can he hang?" with a resounding "yeah."It's ruminative, slow-paced, bearish. It sounds like a walk on Bleeker Street late on a weekend night, or else like walking through the park on a cloudy autumn-in-new-york afternoon, or both. Highly recommended.

One Door Away From Heaven, Dean Koontz

One Door Away from Heaven - book cover picture

This is absolutely one of his best! It is second only to Watchers, my all time favorite. Dean Koontz is a master of description and insight, and he holds nothing back in this one. There are paragraphs so deep, so insightful and so profound, you'll have to catch your breath before going on. He seems to have a deep understanding of human feelings and he knows how to take you on a roller coaster ride! This book is the story of a little girl who reaches out to a young woman for help. She must escape a dire situation. Of course, there is always a supernatural, suspenseful element in all Dean's books. This one will blow you away. I am a long time fan, so take my word for it, this book takes you to another level of comprehension. It is truly enlightening. It is also classicly scary!

Translator Stanley Appelbaum has done an excellent job of preparing a readable, but reasonably literal translation of two very different but often-performed plays by Moliere. And his brief introduction gives sufficient background to help the reader jump into the reading of the plays. I chose this edition as a way to brush up on my college French prior to my trip to Paris, so I especially appreciated having the French and English on facing pages with each line perfectly lined up. The generous white space around the text was great for taking notes. Sometimes the simplest book designs are the best! Kudos to Dover Press.

What Romance!

Outlander - book cover picture

I have read the four books of this growing series. They are so enjoyable, and maybe unlike some people, I am so glad they go on for almost a thousand pages! Diana Gabaldon has a real flare for writing romance, not just sex, for touching the sacred while keeping her characters real. I thought that Claire accepted a little too readily her appearance in Scotland 200 years earlier, but after awhile, I forgot about that and accepted it, too. The Jaime-Claire romance is so wonderful as a fantasy, but it also teaches us that real love is possible. Sometimes, in order to accept fantasy, we have to suspend our desire to want everything to fall neatly into "real" boxes. I can't wait for the next book to come out.

The Dogs of Babel : A Novel - book cover picture

Paul's unconditional love for free-spirited, fun-loving, not-a-care-in-the-world Lexy is the early focus of the book. During his desperate journey into the mystery of her death, Paul comes to the realization that Lexy's masks were not only physical, but emotional as well. The reader gains a much better understanding of Lexy's true (and troubled) personality as the book progresses. Lorelei, their dog, grieves along with Paul...heartbreaking account of the process she goes through.
Portions of the book...pertaining to the surgical altering of dogs...were difficult to read.
Overall, a unique and strangely entertaining novel.

an excellent and clearly written textbook

Book title: Physiology (Physiology)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Physiology (Physiology) - book cover picture

A superb book on mammalian physiology. It integrates from cell to organ physiology whenever is possible avoiding excess of details. All chapters are very clear, but the chapters concerning renal physiology and hidrosaline balance are so clearly written.The illustrations are very good and simple, which definetely help to understand concepts like renal clearance. Gastrointestinal physiology are also updated and easy to understand, especially the topic of gastrointestinal secretions.Endocrine physiology integrates the knowledge at cellular and molecular level to understand the actions of hormones and the regulation of the endocrine system. In summary, a very well organized textbook which can be used in physiology courses for medicine, pharmacy and biochemestry

Economy and Society: An Outline of Interpretive Sociology (2 volume set) - book cover picture

What can I say of this work that has not already been said. This is the core of Structural Functionalism. It is presented as an argument against Karl Marx's Capital and his 1844 Manuscripts. Weber argues that the economic sphere is not the only factor in determining social structure. While Marx divides society into owners and workers, Weber presents society as composed of several layers of classes and status groups.

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Dark Stairs : A Herculeah Jones Mystery (Herculeah Jones Mystery) - book cover picture

I liked the book The Dark Stairs because I like long mysteries and this one was kind of unsolvable. The book was a little bit scary. I also liked it because I want to be a detective. In the book I especially liked the part when Meat and Herculeah went to the library and saw a picture of the "man in black" in the newspaper. That man is the Moloch. You should read the book because you would like it. It feels like you're solving the mystery.
