Pale Moon Rider - book cover picture

Captain Starlight was notorious for his highway robberies. He was startled when Renee d'Anton stepped down from the coach he was suppose to be robbing and announced that she would like to hire him steal a set of heirloom rubies. Even more startling was the fact that he was to steal them from her as she traveled by coach in a couple of weeks! Of course he suspected a trap set up by Colonel Roth. Renee was helping Roth capture the highwayman only because refusal meant the death of her fourteen year old brother. However, she also expected to double cross Roth. Never would she submit to Roth or be forced to wed Edgar. With the highwayman's help, she and her brother would escape and be far away from everyone's reach! ***Not a typical highwayman kidnaps helpless woman story! This woman has strength and courage, even though she does not FEEL strong or courageous! No simpering Miss here! I loved it!***

Fall Of the Phantom Lord: Climbing and the Face of Fear - book cover picture

Using the example of legendary climber, Dan Osman's life, Andrew Todhunter paints a thorough and revealing picture of a modern day extreme sports enthusiast. Dan Osman, known as much for epic roped falls as his difficult sport routes at lake Tahoe's Cave Rock, allows Andrew Todhunter an intimate look at the many life experiences that constitute the lifestyle of an expert rock climber. The book provides breathtaking descriptions of both roped falls and rock climbs in the highlands of California. On the other hand, it attempts to communicate to outsiders the allure and motivation to climb and fall and take the inherent risks involved in rock climbing. Todhunter achieves this through crystalline anecdotes about his own climbing and diving pursuits and the life-changing experience of becoming a father. The accounts of experiences with Dan Osman are entertaining.

The Penguin Atlas of World History (Penguin Reference Books) - book cover picture

This has been my bible ever since I bought it 15 or so years ago. For the sheer information to weight ratio this is the densest and most useful book I have ever seen. Every single page is a high colour, quality map on one side with extremely concise notes on the other side. Massively indexed. Quite different, and I think considerably better, than the books I have just bought in Penguin's new series. Although the new ones are a bit more user friendly and less intimidating for the general reader, I suppose.

Me Like Sedaris

Me Talk Pretty One Day - book cover picture

Funny, charming, and heartwarming. I laughed. I cried. It was better than Cats. Sedaris has been around and these stories are testament to the freakish family members and miserable jobs that are part of his life. I was cautioned by one trustworthy book-loaning friend of mine, "It's just not that funny. He's not the same in print as on NPR." Well I say, "To hell with that." The stories aren't all pee-in-your-pants-laugh-till-you-cry funny, but they do make me smile.Furthermore, Sedaris has a knack for setting a mood, even though it's mostly his own mood that we share. Buy it. Read it. I told you so.

Betsy-Tacy series is a classic!

Betsy-Tacy (Betsy-Tacy) - book cover picture

The Betsy-Tacy series by Maud Harte Lovelace is classic in the same way the "Little House" series is. Underrated, and beautifully written books about friendship, family traditions, solid, wholesome values, I highly recommend the entire series, but especially the high school years books, to the entire family. I am 53 and introduced them to my daughter at a young age, and she in turn, will introduce them to her daughter and my granddaughter. I still reread them once a year and never seem to tire of them!

Understanding Health Policy (Lange) - book cover picture

This book was a requirment for my medical school curriculum. Once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. I've never read any other books on health policy, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but I thought it was an excellent books. It is very well written, very easy to understand and extremely informative. I believe anyone interested in health care, medicine, etc. should obtain the knowledge in this book and what better source than "Understanding Health Policy".

Season of Migration to the North (African Writers Series) - book cover picture

This book is extremely interesting and the writer did a brilliant job work of presenting the conflicts in the protagonist's soul. I thoroughly enjoyed it and had a better idea of why those who experience two worlds easily identify with one , especially the world that doe not look down on them. Disciples of Fortune, Dreams of my father, The Color of water ,Midaq Alley are other niv=ce stories to read.

An Outstanding and Varied Series

Book title: Gone, Baby, Gone
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Gone, Baby, Gone - book cover picture

Lehane's fourth novel in the series is once again outstanding. As always, he takes you in a direction you don't expect with plot twists that are impossible to predict but not unfair. I'd have preferred Angie to act differently at the end, but that's a minor quibble. The downbeat plot conclusion is necessary in order to emphasize the social criticism that Lehane wants to make, and the most important motives are highly original, even mind-boggling (can't be too specific here as I don't want to give things away). (And yes, the prologue and epilogue make excellent sense and add considerably to the intrigue and impact of the story.)

Heir to the Shadows (The Black Jewels Trilogy, Book 2) - book cover picture

I love the entire Dark Jewels Trilogy (which should have had *four* books) The combinations of Appalling cuteness, dizzying humor and breath taking horror make it a satisfying read. You have to love a book where a 50,000 year old undead sorceror has the mind-numbing task of playing "Father Knows Best" for a Avatar of Magic...who also happens to be a teenaged girl.I loved the psychology of the characters, the descriptions of Daemon's madness, and of course Lucivar's escape from Pruul...this was a good book but it went by *way* to fast...I'd also like to point out that Saetan is not *the* satan of christian faith, nor is "Lucivar" the "other guy"....

The Giver (Newbery Medal Book) - book cover picture

I think this book must be read by all! Louis Lowry has become one of my best writers. This science-fiction story has meaning, unlike most books today. I first read this as a class book and couldn't put it down. One night I even sneaked out of my bedroom to read the book! I do like thinking about what I've read, but the ending isn't self-explanatory.
