Jill Nagle Smashes Stereotypes

Whores and Other Feminists - book cover picture

I am mystified by some of the negative customer reviews of this book. Jill Nagle's anthology of essays across the sex worker theme did nothing short of smash every stereotype I had ever held about prostitutes, exotic dancers and other sex workers. These stereotypes have undoubtedly been created by the alternate over-glamorous and sub-realist portrayals from Hollywood. While any critically thinking reader will understand that Nagle doesn't cover the seedy underbelly of child prostitution and harmful sex services, what she shows is voluntary sex work on an equal par with any other skilled profession, though with a healthy dose of self-reflection, feminism and personal growth on the part of the workers themselves. I probably bought five additional copies to send to friends. It's an eye-opener.

Friedman Delivers

Book title: Who Wrote the Bible?
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Who Wrote the Bible? - book cover picture

This fascinating book unfolds like a mystery novel, and like a really good "whodunit," it is very hard to put down. Friedman sorts through everything that is known about the historicity of the Torah, adds some of his own deductions based on style and subject matter, and comes to a solid, well-supported conclusion.This book lacks for nothing; any question that can be answered, is. Friedman knows his archeology, his Hebrew, his history, his commentary. The reader will be able to go back to the Torah with fresh understanding after reading this book, but more, the reader learns quite a lot about Jewish history.I hesitate to say more, because I don't want to give anything away, so please just trust me; even is you have just a passing interest in the Bible, you will enjoy this book.

Behind the Bedroom Wall - book cover picture

I read this book in the fourth grade and at first it was boring and I didn't get it. But now when I read it again it is very worth reading over and over again. A German girl is supprised that her parents have betrayed their leader for a bunch of Jews(which are tradiors to the Germans back then). But yet she finds out that these people aren't so bad. Do people really have to hide from everyone in their countey just because their beliefs are different? I don't think so. She tries to hide these people from her friends. And when she comes very close to blowing her secret at times, she doesn't know who are her real friends are. She must chose her parents and the innosent people she is hiding behind her wall, or her country. I, of course, recomend this book to all ages. It will give you a new presective on good and bad.

So Cool!

Soulmate - book cover picture

When Hannah starts find notes that warn her of some coming danger, she thinks she's crazy. But she then finds out about the nightworld and that she is an 'old soul'. And she finds out that she has a soulmate (Thierry). I liked this book because, throughout the whole thing, you learn peice by peice about Hannah's, Theiry's, Maya's, and a lot of the nightworld's, history. It is also very romantic. I think Thierry sounds so cute and sweet (if only more real boys could be like that!)!

This book changed how I looked at homes, workplaces, and public spaces, and more fundamentally, how I thought about my life in relation to the larger community. My new perspective led me to discover the cohousing movement, and to my current residence in an evolving ecovillage. Whether you're an architect, a big-city planner, or just looking to renovate your kitchen, this book is an invaluable guide and inspiration!

My favorite Demille; by the author of PRESSURE POINTS

Book title: The Gold Coast
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Gold Coast - book cover picture

I've read 'em all, and loved them all with varing levels of passion. This was my second Demille read, and my favorite because of the narrative tone. Just when you thought the man only wrote about Vietnam and CID stuff, here's something completely fresh. I've heard from other Demille readers that this one didn't click with them... to each her/his own, I guess, but what's not to like? It'll make you laugh (nobody argues that), and it's suspenseful in a this-could-be-you sort of way. Check it out -- if you read for entertainment, then you won't be disappointed.

WONDERFUL. One of literature's most satisfying stories.

Crown Duel: The Crown & Court Duet, Book I - book cover picture

The author's subtle wit and piquant characterizations are at their best in this, her most famous work. Meliara Astair is the most delightful heroine in this genre of all time, and Shevraeth will spoil women for real men for all time. The plot moves rapidly, the dialogue is clever, and each character is well fleshed-out without being overpowering. Everybody gets what they deserve in the end, and there is not a loose end to be found. Brilliant. -

Masterpiece of Popular Writing

Book title: The Bonfire of the Vanities

The Bonfire of the Vanities - book cover picture

Hands down one of the most enteratining novels that I have ever read, and definitely the best rendering of modern New York City in fiction! This paperback was so ubiquitous I waited 10 years to reluctantly read it, and only because it was one of the only books on the shelf where I was staying. Boy, was I rewarded with this compulsively readable, suspenseful, razor-sharp story. For social satire to be so fiendishly plotted is a real treat and this story will have you racing to its inexorable conclusion. Along the way Wolfe manages to poke his pen into virtually every corner of the city, nailing every character-type in this rollicking comedy. WARNING--Never watch the insulting Brian DePalma movie, surely the worst transfer of a novel to film EVER. Read this peerless novel instead.

Badge And The Baby (Bachelors & Babies) (Harlequin Temptation, 741) - book cover picture

Technology has put online readers directly in touch with online authors and allowed many of us to get sneak peaks at the newest offerings by those whose books we read for comfort. Alison Kent is an automatic buy and a one-hundred percent comfort read for me. She takes the complexities usually found in longer family dramas and skillfully weaves them throughout her shorter works.THE BADGE AND THE BABY pits two strong characters against one another in an emotional test of values and beliefs. Willa and Joel are as real as the people next door and the reader is with them every step of the way as they overcome ingrained odds to fall in love. Ms. Kent is a master at writing relationship stories. This one succeeds on every level and excels at the sexual tension that has become her trademark.Now if I can only talk her into letting me read her next book, FOUR MEN AND A LADY!

Soul Quenching!

Something More - book cover picture

I truly enjoyed reading this book. I usually go through a book quickly from begining to end and highlight lines that have particular meaning for me, and then I have it as a reference to go back and read or to see how far I have progressed. It is a book that truly touched my heart and one that I will pass on to my daughter. Just want to say thank you so much Sarah for writting "Something More" and also for "Simple Abundance - A Daybook of Comfort and Joy." They are both on my desk at work and people at work are always commenting on how "together" I must be! Thanks again!
