Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution - book cover picture

Until a co-worker turned me on to Dr. Atkins Diet. I was really skeptic, but got the book and gave it a try.Three months later, I have lost 35lbs, RIGHT THROUGH THE HOLIDAY SEASON! All I had to do was skip the deserts and potatoes. The Prime Rib, Steaks we great! While all of my friend added weight, I lost.I do wish there was a simple answer to the vitamin and other pills. Dr. Atkins brand is VERY expensive.

One of Nora's Best

Dance upon the Air (Three Sisters Island Trilogy) - book cover picture

This is one of Nora's best. I'm not usually interested in books that don't have a somewhat realistic plot--especially when much of the book is based on magic. But I couldn't put this one down!! All of the characters immediately sucked me into the plot, so that I didn't want to put the book down. It was a completely believeable story about a woman who was slowly healing from an abusive relationship. How she gets involved with the delightful community of Sisters Island is the backbone of the book. Her reluctance to sleep around was one of the better plot points.I recommend this book highly!!

Great Good Food : Luscious Lower-Fat Cooking - book cover picture

My copy of this cookbook is well-thumbed with pages folded down and notes written in the margins, testifying to its position as my favorite cookbook for well over five years. I entertain friends for dinner on average of once a week, and many of the recipes in this book have become consistent lower-fat favorites. The breakfast recipes are especially good. The German pancake, morning glory muffins, and raspberry muffins are winners. The all green fruit salad is great, the corn and black bean salad is a never-fail, and the recipe for "A Perfect Little Spanish Cake" is partly why my husband fell in love with me when I made it for him in a heart-shaped pan for Valentine's Day when we were dating! I would never part with this cookbook.

Witty, deep, politically conscious -- and a great read!

Leaps of Faith - book cover picture

This is an extraordinary book. What's it about? Work, love, race, art, family, and the role of political imagination in our material and psychic survival. Kranz's characters are wonderfully rich -- hilarious, ambitious, self-depracating, and vulnerable. While some have unusual talents (the intense, sensual, interior world of Warren, a professional psychic, is stunning), they love, argue with, hurt and get hurt by, compete against, fail and support each other in scenes of daily life I found both familiar and illuminating. One of the smartest novels I've ever read, Leaps has an experimental narrative structure worthy of a Ph.D. thesis -- while also being delightfully readable.

Borges: Collected Fictions - book cover picture

Borges is undoubtedly one of the greatest writers of our century. The fact that he was ignored by the academy (it doesn't deserve capital letters) can be explained only by the political influences that it suffered, choosing mainly left-wing authors. Borges was very critical to communism, in the same way that he was critical to racism, populism or extreme nationalism. In fact, he opposed all forms of irrational and extreme thoughts. The academy, in the biggest example of its mediocrity, never forgave him for this. Borges work, in contrast, will remain as one of the most brilliant literary expressions of mankind.

The Best Book Ever!!!

Binding: Hardcover
Ella Enchanted (Newbery Honor Book) - book cover picture

Ella Enchanted is the best book I have ever read in my whole life!!! It's about a girl, Ella, who was put under a curse at birth by that fool of a fairy Lucinda. Her curse is that she has to obey any command given to her, which means she is always in danger. Then her mother dies and she is left to be cared for by her greedy father. Who promptly sends her to finishing school where she makes a friend. Then she escapes, tames orges, goes to giants weddings, all the while charming Prince Charmont aka. Char. Later her father marries and she gets two evil but dull stepsisters which she is practically enslaved by. Throughout the whole book Ella prevails in whatever sort of scrape she gets herself into charming and enchanting the reader with her courage, humor, and all around fun loving personality. I loved this book!! I've read it at least 5 times!! And if you haven't read it or own it, you need to go out his very minute and get it!!!

Cadillac Desert is the story of water, politics and the west

Cadillac Desert: The American West and Its Disappearing Water - book cover picture

Cadillac Desert is an up close, raw and personal look at the politics, money, and power that went behind the story of water and the West. Marc Reisner spent years meticuously researching the history of water development in the West and writes of this story in great brilliance. In an era where the environment was given little consideration, men like Floyd Dominy, Commissioner of the Bureau of Reclamation, could spend billions in tax payers dollars to literally move rivers and transform the desert landscape irrevocably. The West's insatiable appetite for water nearly caused the Grand Canyon to be dammed up in only relatively recent times. The era dam building may be coming to close in todays world of environmental impact statements and governmental regulations but the fight for water in the west continues

But growing up in a poor family in Harlem, his hope for a successful future weakened as he came to realize fully the class and racial struggles around him. He began to doubt himself and started attending high school less and less, turning to his friend frank and his books for comfort. This story takes place during the 1940s and 1950s

Lord of Light - book cover picture

The good news: this classic is back in print. I made the mistake of lending my dog-eared copy a year or two, and haven't seen it since. The publisher is: Millenium (an imprint of Orion Books Ltd), Orion House, 5 Upper St Martin's Lane, London WC2H 9EA, Email: smy@orionbooks.co.ukThe bad news: this edition has to be the poorest piece of proof-reading I've seen. I picked up about 10 glaring typing errors in the first hundred pages, some of which make complete nonsense of the affected sentence. Example: on page 6, paragraph beginning "Despite his fall from favor...". The fifth sentence reads "He was known to be wider even than the Lord Kubera...". For "wider", read "wiser".I don't know if this edition is available in the US.
