Katharine Graham's illuminating & candid autobiography

Book title: Personal History
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Personal  History - book cover picture

What a story! This is a revealing personal account of Katharine Graham's life. She tells about her childhood as a rich girl without much self-confidence; her marriage to the depressed but brilliant Phil Graham, who ran the Washington Post (her father's newspaper) and later committed suicide; and ultimately her leadership of the Washington Post through Watergate, the Pentagon Papers, Vietnam and an incredibly interesting time in American history. This book intertwines the history of the nation with Graham's own history, and the result is a delight. It is an honest, funny and interesting story, and her spirit and heart shine through in her writing. I learned a lot about an amazing woman while gaining a new perspective on a turbulent time in history.

Tess of the D'Urbervilles - book cover picture

There is so much to say for Tess. It is an extremely moving and powerful work. I don't care what Aristotle says- it is tragic. Tess is one of the most real heroines I've ever met. If you find yourself a little bored in the beginning- don't give up. I almost did, but I am so glad that I forced myself to read on. By the third phase I was hooked. This work really makes one think about and question technology and religion. It also shows us the cruelty of the Victorian double standard. Read it! But prepare yourself for the heart wrenching ending, i.e.- have tissues at hand.

Architecture Classic on Classical Architecture

The American Vignola : A Guide to the Making of Classical Architecture (The Classical America Series in Art and Architecture) - book cover picture

Covering the American Renaissance these are the notes of a leading teacher of classical architecture from 1890 to 1940. Be cautioned, this is a textbook although it resembles one of those wonderful picture books by Dover, where the pages are filled, one after another with awesome detailed drawings on countless subjects. Definitely an academic work it makes for an indepth and often dry academic read. Although there are detailed drawings of architectural styles, extensive descriptions, background etc. of American Renaissance prevail. I emphasize this difference because the volume looks deceivingly like a popular interest read. Not to discount the invaluable information, it is a classic amongst architectural literature and a wealth of information for the serious architecture student and professional and can only be given the highest of recommendations.

Bsc #02 : Claudia And The Phantom Phone Calls (Baby-Sitters Club: Collector's Edition) - book cover picture

This was the first BSC book I read. I was about 11 and got hooked on it after the first few pages. I remember sitting in my living room alone at night reading the part about Claudia hearing strange noises coming from outside while she was babysitting one night. I got frightened myself! The mystery element was terrific. Ann M. Martin is one of the greatest children's authors. She really understands preteens. No doubt she's so good because she was a teacher. More teachers need to try their hand at writing.

Till Death Do Us Part - book cover picture

Lurlene McDaniel is one of the best authors I have read. One of the best books I have read by her is called "Till Death Do Us Part". This book was a very emotional book. McDaniel did a great job at making everything come togather in the end. During this book April is diagnosed with a brain tumor, that is inoperable. While all this is going on she meets a guy named Mark. Mark has cystic fibrosis. She and Mark start hanging out and going places togather. Pretty soon April starts falling in love with Mark. A couple of months later they get engaged. One day Mark got in a serious accident, that could change both their lifes forever.

Access New York City 9e (Access New York City, 9th ed) - book cover picture

In preparing for 3 day sightseeing trip to New York City with my wife, this was the first book I bought. It helped me determine where to stay, some sights not to miss, & a couple excellent restaurants to try. I was very satisfied with the information I learned from this book & I'm glad I bought it. I'm not saying you shouldn't buy other books on NYC because I bought 3 or 4 others and I learned some addition things from each of them. For me, I don't know if I'll ever get back to NYC and I wanted to make sure I would see all the spots I felt would be important to me. Other very good books are "Eyewitness Travel Guide New York,", "Lonely Planet New York City,", & the "Zagat Survey on NYC Restaurants."

A moving story about a great friendship.

Talk Before Sleep - book cover picture

While in the middle of reading this moving book, I had to pick up the phone and call my best friend who lives 300 miles away and tell her again how much she means to me and that I love her. Of course she already knew these things, but this book makes you take a look at your friendships and appreciate them a bit more and realize how blessed you are to have those around you who "understand" you and love you just the way you are. What would you do with her or say to her if you knew your time together was limited? Elizabeth Berg is a great author who can make you laugh and cry and always make you glad you chose her book to pick up and pass the time. I have read several of her books and have yet to be disappointed.

The Tommyknockers - book cover picture

Tommyknockers was truly (and still is) an interesting horror for me. I like the way Stephen King took each character and described what was happening with them. I felt like I was there. As a matter of fact, I started reading this book in 1994 or 95 and I still have a good 150-200 pages to read....not that's its slow to read because its a very good book, it just plain scared me and I put it down and haven't picked it back up....I plan to do so soon ~ keep them coming stephen!

Econometric Methods - book cover picture

Given my relatively weak background in econometrics and statistics, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to understand my graduate econometrics class. However, ever since I started reading from this book, I have managed to follow what my teacher is saying. The steps on how the equations are derived are explained, but without making it too easy for the reader. This textbook is a great help. No wonder this has been around for some time. Nevertheless, I was hoping that there's an answer key for the problems.

Mother Earth Spirituality is a great and generous gift

Mother Earth Spirituality : Native American Paths to Healing Ourselves and Our World (Religion and Spirituality) - book cover picture

In Mother Earth Spirituality, Ed McGaa (Eagle Man) writes: "For Indians, four-legged and winged ones, stones, and trees are regarded as holy, in that they harmoniously live upon this earth, following exactly the plan of the Great Spirit." Reading this book was itself a spiritual experience, a revelation of the Great Spirit. I was informed, inspired, moved, and also brought to grief over what had been missing from my own life: the closeness to Mother Earth that the author so clearly and powerfully feels. By describing Oglala Sioux spirituality and philosophy from the inside, Ed McGaa has given us a great and generous gift. I owe him a debt of gratitude for reminding me of what I must recover. If humanity is to have a future, it will have to learn the lessons and absorb the wisdom of this important book.
