Kovels' Antiques and Collectibles Price List, 37th Edition (Kovels' Antiques and Collectibles Price List) - book cover picture

If you're at all interested in antiques, this all-new version of the Kovels book is for you. I was attracted to the Kovels books years ago, but lately had stopped buying them. That was foolish because I'm a collector and NOT having a current guide probably meant I paid more for some things than I should have. I was attracted back to the Kovels while watching their very informative -- and funny -- TV show on Home and Garden Television. The show reminded me that I hadn't bought a guide for a few years, so I ordered one and started using it immediately. In a word, the Kovels new, updated, easy-to-use guide is indespensible!

Wonderful, irreverant, and an absolute treasure

Book title: The River Why
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The River Why - book cover picture

Not since the brutal knife-edged keenness of Edward Abbey has any author come so close to fulfilling the dream of producing a GREAT novel. Fishing, in The River Why is only the metaphor for the life lessons this story illustrates - lessons that I have ignored, or buried for all the wrong reasons - at the worst possible moments - lessons that this book slams home with humor, kindness, and terrifyingly real human frailty. You'll laugh, cry, ponder, wish, and wonder if that mirror that stares back at you isn't really the portal that fills David James Duncan with material.

Seabiscuit: An American Legend - book cover picture

What an amazing story! Laura Hillenbrand puts the reader right the middle of a truly capitavating slice of American sports history. (Non-sports fans should find this book just as irrestible as sports fans.) She describes a horse race so vividly that you can almost feel the wind and dirt blowing past your face as you circle the track. The race stories are fantastic, but the real beauty of the book can be found in the book's many memorable characters, underdogs all. The stories of the men that staked their fortunes, careers and sometimes lives on this magnificant horse are truly fascinating. The author is also able to describe the horse's personality and athleticism in a way that will forever change the way I look at thoroughbred horses. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a great American story.

Emperor Mage: The Immortals (Immortals (Paperback)) - book cover picture

Here she is again folks, but this time she's all the way across the Inland Sea. Coming with a royal envoy (which includes familiar persons such as the Gareths, Alanna, and Numair)she plans to try and heal the emperor of Carthak's ailing birds with her magic. Little does she know what will happen toher there. Some examples are making a friend who is NOT on this century's "Top 9999 Good-Smelling Vertebrates List", and receiving several godly visits. In this book, Daine, with some help, should wreak havoc on the world of book reviews.(Among other places.) If you'd like to see Daine and her friends, search "Tamora Pierce" in Infoseek, and check out the site headed MEGAN.

Building Embedded Linux Systems - book cover picture

This book is a good starting point for people to understand the work of embedded linux engineers in the real world. It is also a great book for experienced people in the industry as they can collect various pieces of missing information. I just wish I had this book two years back when I learnt all this stuff the hardway through pieces of information on web. Technology changes fast, but the stuff mentioned in the book is still up to date in the industry.

Edge of Victory I: Conquest (Star Wars: The New Jedi Order, Book 7) - book cover picture

Overall the book was well made and I enjoyed the small twists and turns throughout the plot. Some things didn't connect in my mind at 3 A.M., though a second reading of the book should clarify them. I enjoyed the re-introduction of Qorl and the interesting gem that Anakin finds to repair his lightsaber with. One problem I found with the whole book is that I felt lost when they talked about background information in the Anakin/Tahiri relationship as I have not read the Junior Jedi Knight books.

The Time Machine (Classic, 20th-Century, Audio) - book cover picture

I first read this book when I was ten years old and it had a profound affect on me. The Time Machine, along with The War of the Worlds stands as one of the first books of modern science fiction. When I was growing up, H.G.Wells had a strong impact on my life. His books always takes the reader into a web of science and imagination. The reader is faced with the horrors and wonders of science and its abilities. Every year I take time off to read this book and when I do, it brings me the same affect that it first brought me when I was ten. H.G.Wells was truly a master of science fiction.

A Classic

Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel (Sandpiper books) - book cover picture

This was perhaps my favorite children's book. I received a hardbound copy as a child and I still have it, though the binding is busted and some of the pages are torn. As you probably imagine, I read it faithfully. I treasured it because it was one of the few books I owned. I bought another copy about ten years ago so that I could read the story to my students. It's a great read-aloud for young children. Virginia Lee Burton crafted a timeless tale that has maintained its status as a must-have for any child's collection.

The Macgregor Trilogy: Macgregor's Gathering; The Clansman; Gold for Prince Charlie - book cover picture

Being a MacGregor myself I was interested in these books purely to see if they were entirely fiction or based on fact. What I found was three books of excellent quality which grip the reader and mkae you forget everything else. Trantor has produced some of the best Scottish fiction I have ever read and the way he endears you to the characters in these books is subtle yet intoxicating. The third book has made me realise that Trantor knows more about the clan than I first thought, he mixes fact with fiction and I believe that somewhere off the West caost of Scotland there is a ship or caches of gold hidden from the English. These are a must read for any true MacGregor or patriotic Scotsman who wishes to know just that little bit more about our countries history.

A Painted House - book cover picture

We read to our son every night and are always looking for good material. This was one of my very favorites of many, many books we've read. I hadn't read any of Grisham's other books. I was so impressed with his marvelous writing and so enjoyed the story. The book was wonderful to read outloud, plus how great it was to be able to read a great book of substance to a kid and not have to censor it. Night after night after reading to my son I would say later to my husband, "I REALLY like the book we're reading...."
