A Pirate Looks at Fifty - book cover picture

This is Jimmy Buffett "the man," the explorer, the philosopher. My only regret was that I couldn't be along to view the Costa Rican waterfall, or cruise the Amazon, or hear the steel drum band. Buffett's theory: do something for yourself on your 50th. He wrote this book for himself, and for all of us who'd rather be sipping and sailing. It's not for everyone (how do you describe the ocean to someone who's never seen it?), but maybe you should read it. Especially if you're trying to reason with turning 50. I lay down the book, blew out my candles -- went out and bought a ragtop!

The Healing Journey Through Grief: Your Journal for Reflection and Recovery - book cover picture

As a grief counselor, I've seen a lot of books about loss. But rarely have I seen a book that is so sensitive and accurate about the many feelings people experience when they lose someone close to them. The journal entries, prompting the reader to write about their feelings about the loss, are exactly the kind of thing I suggest that the people in my grief groups do. If you've lost someone you love, I can't recommend this book highly enough.

The Dante Club : A Novel - book cover picture

I really like to read books from all different time periods and this book makes you feel like you are really in post-civil war Boston. It gives plenty of detail on the characters and you feel like you know them personally. It is also fun and challenging to figure out who the murderer is, because the author does not give any clues in his speech of who it could be. The author is very knowledgeable about Daunte. While you don't learn ALL of the details of Daunte's Inferno, you learn many of them and you get a sense of the true meaning of the poetry.

Passport's Illustrated Guide to Paris (Passport's Illustrated Travel Guide to Paris, 4th ed) - book cover picture

Elizabeth Morris's Travel Guide to Paris, written under the auspices of Thomas Cook, is a wonderful and clear guide to the neighborhoods, museums, churches and monuments of Paris. It includes several day excursions out of the city as well. I would like to see it restocked because I don't believe I have seen a clearer depiction of what Paris has to offer anywhere else. Ms. Morris's walking tours are superb and informative. It's just a really good resource.

Head First Design Patterns - book cover picture

I have skimmed through a lot of books related to design patterns, and this is the best beginner book I have found so far. It is fun to read, and easy to understand, More importantly, unlike many other design pattern books which use the same examples over and over again ('mimic' Gang of Four classic Design Pattern book's examples), this book uses different examples that give you a better understanding about how each design pattern can be used. Of course, as described in the book, this is not a reference book or book for guru, because it focuses on more popular patterns, but it does touch on the rest of patterns that are less used, which gives you a good head start. Another good thing about this book is, it also describes the "relationship" between one pattern and another, and how they can be used together (although more would be nice). Anyhow, if you want to learn Design Pattern, this will be a good start!!!!

2010: Odyssey Two - book cover picture

This book was much better than 2001! It did take saturn out of the storyline, but that actually made it more interesting. It starts out with Heywood Floyd finding out that the Russians are going to make it to discovery before the Americans can build discoveryII. So the Russians allow Heywood to board their ship,the Leonov, and start on the journey to Jupiter to discover the mystery of the monolith and of Hals malfunction...

French Revolution and Napoleonic Era - book cover picture

I had the pleasure of having Professor Conelly this past summer for a class on the French Revolution and Napoleon at the University of South Carolina. This book was the only text for the class. Reading a book is one thing, but hearing it straight from the horse's mouth is another entirely.

I didn't realize just how well known and respected he was until I saw him interviewed on a NOVA special on Napoleon. Trust me, this guy knows what he's talking about, and he writes a simple, concise, easy-to-read explanation of France from 1789 - 1815.

All Canadian Women Should Read This Book

The Diviners (Phoenix Fiction Series) - book cover picture

I've read this book twice and I enjoyed it even more the second time. The characters are complex and interesting and their lives take unexpected twists and turns, making the story very realistic and very fascinating. The development of the storyline is such that you feel as if you are on the same journey as the characters, as the reader can't help to be emotionally connected to the little town and the main characters.Laurence is a brilliant writer and this is her best work -- which is a big compliment since her other novels are incredible too.I highly recommend this book, and especially to other Canadian women who will love Morag Gunn and relate to her life as a woman in Canada.

True Erotica

Delta of Venus - book cover picture

At the time this erotica was written, it must have been TRULY original, because I do not know of anything like this existing before it, or after. These stories are told so passionately, and I found interest in even the smallest details. These stories stand on their own in many areas, and not just as something to get the reader off. I only wish Anais Nin was still alive! The only modern erotica I've found that I like has been Rescue Me by Megan Clark and The Arch of Desire by Vicente Puelles).
