36 Hour Day : A Family Guide to Caring for Person with          Alzheimer Disease - book cover picture

Sometimes we prefer surprises in life. When it comes to caring for loved ones with dementia, surprises are generally not welcomed. In the 36-Hour Day, caregivers receive so much information about symptoms, progression of the disease, and behavioral changes to expect that readers often comment "I'm sure this book was written about my family!" In the last several years, I seldom do a workshop on Elder topics that this book is not mentioned and highly recommended by caregivers. Knowing what to expect is half the battle especially since caring for someone with dementia/Alzheimer's easily can lend itself to burnout and untold family conflict. I highly recommend this book both to formal and informal caregivers of those with dementia

CLASSIC


Book title: Their Eyes Were Watching God
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Their Eyes Were Watching God - book cover picture

When in high school, I was introduced to this very romantic and classic novel. It was not until in my early twenties (I'm still in my twenties) that I fully understood this book.

In this novel you meet Janie, a very free spirited woman. When she left the town that she helped to build with the very young and handsome Tea -Cake, and to only return in overalls the women of the town began to talk and wonder what happened and where was Tea-Cake. When Janie returns home and is put on trail for murder she has only one friend who she can tell her story of love and lost. This story is the story of the three very different men that came into her life and the women who called themselves her friends.

Now that Oprah has made this into a movie, I hope that it will bring more fans to this once criticized author. I hope that all will pick up this book and read. This is a book that must be added to your collection of books along side Alice Walker and Richard Wright.

Boxcar Children (Boxcar Children (Turtleback)) - book cover picture

I think I must have been in about the third grade when I read this book for the first time. I will always remember how I felt so connected to these children as I am the last of seven children myself and we did not have very much money and my mom and dad were older and at any time something could have happened to them and my older brothers and sisters would had to take care of me. I loved this book so much that when my son who is now 23 was in grade school I had him check it our and we read it together and I once again cried like a baby! I plan to buy this book for my two year old granddaughter and I will read it to her and tell her how very much I love this book. I would hope that every child out there will take the time to read this wonderful story. I'm also very excited to learn that there is a series of books as I was not aware of that. You guessed it, I'll be getting the series for my granddaughter as well!

One of the best verb references for Russian!


Book title: 750 Russian Verbs and Their Uses
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
750 Russian Verbs and Their Uses - book cover picture

Although it isn't as exhaustive as Daum and Shenk's verb tome, this book is perhaps even more essential for the Russian language learner. Its strengths are that it not only covers petty much all but the most specialized verbs (believe me, 750 verbs are more than you'll ever actively use), but it also illustrates them in context -- giving you the variant meanings when used with different cases and in conjunction with different prepositions. These last two points pose the biggest difficulties in using Russian verbs properly, once the learner has mastered the conjugations and the idea of aspect. Regular practice with this book would benefit ever the most advanced students of Russian.Now, if someone would just craft a good workbook using this book as a basis, we would have a very powerful learning tool!

Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game - book cover picture

This is not (as I mistakenly assumed at first) one of those splenetic rants by a so-called baseball traditionalist, bemoaning how the great game has been destroyed by filthy lucre. It is instead a vastly entertaining account of how one extraordinary man (Billy Beane) used his grasp of the imprecision of conventional measures of possible future baseball prowess to overcome his teams comparative lack of cash and assemble an extremely effective bank of young talent (albeit one that has, so far, failed to triumph in the post-season). The best baseball book I've read since Jim Bouton's "Ball Four" nearly 25 years ago.

Double the Intrigue

Entwined Lives: Twins and What They Tell Us about Human Behavior - book cover picture

Despite this society's apparent fascination with twins, it's hard to find extensive literature and research on this topic. I've been looking for some time, and I'm happy to say that this one is quality. Especially interesting if you are a twin, but even if you're a singleton you'll find this hard to put down. It's fascinating to read evidence and theories about what makes each of us who we are individually, as well as what makes us human. I lost my twin before birth, which is the only area I would have liked more information on, but regardless this gave me an insight I didn't have previously.
Very well written, fairly easy to follow. I definitely plan to re-read this a few times and I've passed it on to friends & family.

A Journey to the New World: The Diary of Remember Patience Whipple, Mayflower, 1620 (Dear America Series) - book cover picture

Remember Patience Whipple is about a young girl and her journal. The little girl Patience Whipple is about her trip going to the New World on the Mayflower. It tells about what it was like back then traveling on a ship. It tells stuff like when she was sick she had to cast over the ship,and there was barely any food or water. Patience Whipple was twelve years old, and she got her name because she was not patient. Her father had made her diary from scraps of leather from the cobbler.
Patience Whipple named her diary Imp. She writes in her diary every day and it tells about what things she has to go through in her everyday life. I think you will like the book very much. It is a good book to read and if you do read it, I hope you will enjoy it.

Reflecting the Culture on the House Form


Book title: House Form and Culture
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
House Form and Culture - book cover picture

The book -House Form and Culture - is a precious source of information on the cross cultural aspects of the house form. It is an exploration into the virtually unknown in the field of housing. The author was extremely successful (nothing new considering Amos Rapoport) in editing the availabe scattered sources to weave them into one extensive work that is priceless. The anthropologist, environmental behavior researcher, and the architect are only some of the ones who will appreciate this book. Especially interesting is the effect of the deteriminant of the house on shaping the house form. Rapoports own interpretation of the determinants of house form just brings it all together. The book is well written and very interesting even to the novice as it sheds light on the cultural diversities of the most insignificant tribe and the city dwellers.

Dead of Night - book cover picture

There is no better way to start a trip to Florida than to get on the plane with a new Randy Wayne White book. You are the envy of everyone on the plane & secure in the knowledge that no matter what happens on the trip, you'll have a good time! It works to attract people at the pool, too. I highly recommend the experience and have ALL the Randy Wayne White books--in hardback. He is a fine mystery writer...plus you learn a lot about the flora, fauna, & fisha of Southwest Florida.

King at his finest!


Book title: Misery
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Misery - book cover picture

Misery is a great book. King puts the reader in Paul Sheldon's head and you can actually feel the pain he is going through. Unlike other unrealistic monsters,Annie Wilkes is totally believeable. The movie is alright too,but it leaves out the most suspenseful parts in the book (The amputations,the state trooper that is killed by Annie,and the other troopers that come to investigate).Plus,the movie kills Buster,the likeable sheriff. Not terrifying,but perfectly suspenseful! Well done!
