My First White Friend : Confessions on Race, Love and Forgiveness - book cover picture

I brought this book because I couldnot put her other book. This book is interesting because it deals with issues in my own life.
It lends it self to a therapy session everytime you pickup the book. I am not Afro- American but I am Hispanic and have dealt with alot of the same issue that Pat has. But not to the extend she has. She has a way of writing that by the time you finish the chapter you have really gotten to the core of the matter being spoken about.
I will continue to look for books by this author she is great!

Surprising Read


Book title: Red Leaves
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Red Leaves - book cover picture

My first taste of Paullina's work was Eleven Hours. I had to read more so I read Tully and Red Leaves. What a versatile writer! All three books are intriguing but different. Red Leaves does kill one of it's most intriguing characters early in the story; however, I was only impelled to read on. I was surprised at this unusual plotline, but I found it very effective in this instance. Enjoyed the book immensely.

Tolkien's masterwork the way it was meant to be read.

The Lord of the Rings (Collector's Edition) - book cover picture

Tolkien never intended The Lord of the Rings to be a trilogy. It was split into three parts because the publisher felt it could be promoted better and that it would sell better as three separate books. This volume offers fans a chance to read it as the author originally intended, as one complete book. I have had mine for over 20 years and it is holding up very well. The paper is fine quality and it has a sewn binding. It's not easy to carry, though, so I like to keep a paperback set around for portability.

I *loved* this book & think you will too!


Book title: Spindle's End
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Spindle's End - book cover picture

But I have some caveats: it's not for young/ less experienced readers like Napoli's fairy tale retellings or McKinley's own _Beauty_. This is denser with lots of difficult words and concepts. Perhaps this is a perfect book for a young teen and her/ his parent to share/ read aloud together. McKinley is world building in this novel, it's quite successful, but not simple.It's similar to McKinley's _Deerskin_ in that Rosie and the heroine of that book are transformed and make magic by their knowledge of animals. This book's magic comes from simple things: the magic of wood carving, the magic of blacksmithing, the magic of simple charms, the magic of love. It's a very special book, one I have bought an exrta copy of to put in my classroom so my students can read it.

If you liked the movie, you have to buy this book


Book title: Notting Hill
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Notting Hill - book cover picture

I saw the preview of the movie a few weeks ago, and when I saw this on the shelf of my local bookstore, I just had to have it. The quality of this book is excellent for the price you pay. This edition is similar to the Four Weddings and a Funeral screenplay published a few years ago by Corgi Books (unfortunately no longer available - not to be confused with the lower quality St. Martin edition) printed on high quality paper. The full colour photographs bring the script to life as you read it. If you enjoyed the film, BUY THIS BOOK!

Ecstatic prose; magic from the end of a pen.


Book title: Pigeon Feathers and Other Stories
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Pigeon Feathers and Other Stories - book cover picture

These stories are sublime. Read "Flight" and try not to grunt with pleasure! And let Archangel take you on a trip through the magic of words. Updike is at his best here. "Pigeon Feathers," the story for which the book is named, will astound you. Each story is a gem. If you want to read fiction that is beyond the assembly-line garbage...far, far beyond...read this book. See for yourself that America is still producing world-class literature. If you are a writer of short stories, make this your Bible.

It made a difference


Book title: Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution - book cover picture

I was depressed about my weight. I went to the doctor, who sent me to a nutritionist. I followed the nutritionst's recommendations to the letter...kept my calories under 1,000 per day, kept a journal of everything I ate, and joined a fitness center. I worked out at least 4 times a week, for up to 80 minutes, and two months in a row was in the top 3 at the fitness center for total exercise effort. In three months, I lost 2 pounds. Talk about frustration!

Then I found Atkins. In 2 months, I lost 20 pounds, I was never hungry, my mood and energy improved, I quit counting calories and cut back on exercise. And the weight continued to come off the entire time I followed the diet...total of 35 lbs, which was my goal.

Exercise and low fat diet didn't work.

Atkins did.

Wonderful Classic for School, Libraries and Home Shelves!


Book title: Caddie Woodlawn
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Caddie Woodlawn - book cover picture

Caddie Woodlawn will appeal to both boys and girls. She is lighthearted, brave and has great mechanical ability. She experiences adventures in America in the l860's. Her escapades hold the attention of children and there is something developing in each chapter. A Newbery Medal winner and a book for all children. I have heard many book reports in the classroom on this delightful book.

Lady Whistledown Strikes Back - book cover picture

I really enjoyed this book, and was happy to find that all four stories were solid and worth reading (which is frequently NOT the case with this collections). My only quibble is with the novella/short story format, which doesn't allow for much character development (it forces the "love at first sight" phenomenon on the writer, cause they have to get to the finish line so quickly). I loved the way all four stories interconnected. These ladies did a GREAT job of meshing their plots.
