Rich Get Richer and the Poor Get Prison, The: Ideology, Class, and Criminal Justice - book cover picture

Professor Reiman's latest work is on point. The citizens of this country who read, who vote, who have some degree of influence over politicians must start to work now. Work as if you were marching to the railroad siding and the cattle cars and the eventual Final Solution. The US Constitution and the body of laws in the USA are perverted and only you can help. Jeff Reiman's clear and exciting words spell out the problem and the solution. After reading this book you will want to take one of Professor Reiman's CJ Courses ... I was one of his students in the 1970's at American University and his was the only class I really wanted to be in!

We Wish You a Merry Murder - book cover picture

This was my first foray into Valerie Wolzien's mystery series featuring wealthy suburban mom Susan Henshaw and her gorgeous ex-cop best friend, Kathleen. In addition to the mystery that's the centerpiece of the story, Valerie captures in delightful detail what December is like for a mom who wants to make Christmas perfect for her family. I usually dig this book out and re-read it in one afternoon during Advent. Believe it or not, it's part of what gets me into the Christmas spirit

Animorphs #06 : The Capture (Animorphs) - book cover picture

Jake never wanted to be the leader of the Animorphs, a group of kids who can turn into any animal they touch. He never wanted to lead Rachel, Cassie, Marco, and Tobias on missions against the Yeerks, a slug-like alien species secretly taking over the Earth. But he is and he does. When the Animorphs infiltrate a Yeerk clinic, Jake falls in a miniature yeerk pool. A yeerk pool is where yeerks go to regenerate. They swim and absorb the artificial sun rays of the Kandora, a yeerk device. A yeerk swims into Jake's head. Now he has become a controller. Will the Animorphs fall for this creature's trick? And more importantly, will the yeerk survive to tell the leader of the yeerk invasion, Visser Three, the truth of the Animorph's existence and turn them in? "The Capture" is one of the most entertaining and exciting books in this series.

One of Penman's Best

Dragon's Lair (Ballantine Reader's Circle) - book cover picture

This was easily the best of the three historical mysteries that Penman has written. Very factual and engaging, this one makes the characters feel so real that you almost beleive you are there with them. Action packed and exciting, I couldn't put it down until the very last page! It's one of those books you wish would never end. Although I love her medieval histories more than the first two books in this series, this one easily lives up to Penman's reputation as the premier historical novelist.

Reads better than a mystery!

The Perilous Journey of the Donner Party - book cover picture

What a great read! What a horrifying subject -- cannibalism! I found it difficult to believe that this book was shelved in the "children's section" of my local library, especially when I was reading how the survivors had to resort to eating the flesh of their dead fellow travelers or die of starvation.After reading the whole book, I found the subject of cannibalism less horrifying than at first. This is not to say that I was brought around to accepting the practice of eating human flesh! It is more a tribute to the author for her very deft handling of her subject -- the Donner Party and their struggle for survival; their courage in their fight against Mother Nature. Last, but not least, my compliments to the author for her understanding that until we are in the "other person's shoes", we are not qualified to judge the actions of other people.Definitely a book to be read by young people, but with adult guidance!

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever - book cover picture

This book has become a Christmas classic in our household. We read it every year and enjoy it just as much each time. Each year there are a few more children who will sit and listen to the story and we laugh at the antics of those kids. I guess some of our kids wish they had the nerve to do some of the things Imogene and Ralph and the rest of the gang do. I have given numerous copies of this book as gifts at Christmas and our friends love the story also. Our copy sits on the coffee table for our guests to pick up and read at their leisure.It is quick and very enjoyable reading.

Fight Fat After Forty: The Revolutionary Three-Pronged Approach That Will Break Your Stress-Fat Cycle and Make You Healthy, Fit, and Trim for Life - book cover picture

My husband and I have had an inordinate amount of stress in our lives over the last several years. Dr Peeke says we've been living in Imelda Marco's closet as "the other shoe" keeps dropping on our heads. We have been most fortunate to have Dr Peeke's care and expertise to help us maintain our weight during those times of high stress and have learned what to do to counteract our "stress overeater" habits. Her book is a clearly written explanation of what happens to our bodies, particularly to women's, as we reach our 40's and beyond. Dr Peeke's realistic and practical advice gives us hope that we can finally be in control and become more fit. While the emphasis is on women, Dr Peeke's research has made a great difference in both our lives. There is no magic pill which will take the weight off your body; but reading this book will give you the roadmap to better health. Get in the driver's seat with her excellent book.

As Nature Made Him : The Boy Who Was Raised as A Girl - book cover picture

This was one of the most interesting books I have read. I felt so sorry for the little girl (boy). No one would listen to her. I could not imagine her frustration! Teaches us all a lesson about listening to our children. This book was a page-turner. As a nurse, I have met a few Docs with egos like Dr Money, but he takes the cake! You will not believe some of the "theraputic" things he has this child doing.Kudos to David for coming forward with his story. Hopefully this will save some children from the hell he went through.

Annie on My Mind - book cover picture

Annie on My Mind has to be the best book i've ever read! I get emotional every single time I read it, and i've read it 3 times! i would get excited coming home to read it late at night or waking up really early in the morning to finish it. once i did finish, i began to miss the main characters and would start all over again, taking my time this time around. judging the extent of my admiration for this compelling love story and the author, i wrote Nancy Garden and she was so wonderful in her reply.

Red Sorghum: A Novel of China - book cover picture

This is one of the most vivid, gut-wrenching books I have ever read. It is so utterly real that it can't really be thought of as fiction. Of course, it really isn't. All of the horrors the author describes were actually perpetrated by the Japanese in China.The closest experience to reading this is Truman Capote's "In Cold Blood". Both leave you shaking.The translation is very, very well done. I can only assume that the original Chinese writing is this good!
