The Trumpet of the Swan - book cover picture

Louis is a trumpeter swan. He is born one summer on a little pond in Canada, along with four brothers and sisters. But Louis has a terrible problem. Unlike the rest of his joyfully noisy family, Louis can't make a single sound. And without a trumpet sound, his true love--the beautiful swan Serena--just ignores him. Louis's father promises to help. So does Sam Beaver, a boy who loves all wild animals. First Louis goes to school with Sam and learns to read and write. But swans can't read, so Louis still can't make himself understood. That's when Louis's father puts his honor aside and steals a brass trumpet to give his son a voice. Louis's determination to pay off his father's debt to woo his own true love takes him far from the wilderness he loves. But his faith and his joy in life are always with him.

A Pup Just for Me/A Boy Just for Me - book cover picture

Ed Young's wonderful illustrations perfectly complement Dorothea Seeber's two-part story of a boy and a new pup finding each other. I enjoyed the book as a tale for the individual new puppy owner. However, it would make a great read-aloud for a group of children K-2. The illustrations are bright and clear. The story is one where children can anticipate the turn of events. When you turn the book over and start reading again, what fun! I highly recommend this book.

Shopaholic Takes Manhattan - book cover picture

I picked up this book after seeing it on a list of new books. Honestly I first picked it up because of the cover. But it is hilarious! When I saw that it was a follow-up to "Confessions of a Shopoholic" I bought that book also. I read "Confessions..." first and it was so funny. A book rarely makes me laugh out loud but this one certainly did. I finished it in a day so that I could move on to "Shopoholic in Manhattan." I was worried it wouldn't be as funny but it was even better! I finished it in a day also because I just couldn't put it down. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to read a funny and clever book. It's a good book for a day at the beach. Everyone should go out there and buy it. I hope that the author writes another follow-up!!

Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls - book cover picture

This book goes way beyond what I once thought self help books were. Mary Pipher not only helps us understand and recognize the trials and tribulations of adolescent girls, but also those of a middle aged America who struggle to understand a social world that is simply not the same as when they were young. The book is surprisingly positive, though, telling of case after case where troubled adolescent girls were aided through therapy and moved on to better existences. I have not seen another writer with such compassion and understanding for an age and developmental group so different. Think of it as a handbook for parents and girls alike. Pipher's own observations lead to sage advice: don't think of this book as another "self help" book. It most certainly is not.

A Love Story like no other

Love Story - book cover picture

Oliver and Jenny made me laugh. They made me cry. They made me fall in love. I read this book for the first time when I was 15 and well - a teeny bopper would be taken away by this book and I was. I have read it over and over again and cried like crazy - laughed like a maniac and gone hysterical reading this love tale. It's not the language of the book - but its simplicity that I believe has earned it so many fans throughout the world. After all love does speak the universal language - of warmth, of caring, of being in the moment in the arms of the beloved till its gone and all remains is memories - moondust...Its one book I keep close to my bed. Never know when I might need it again!! Great classic!!

The Runaway Jury (John Grishham) - book cover picture

Ethics isn't in the vocabulary of the lawyers involved in the biggest civil case ever in a little court house in Mississippi. The reader will be horrified at the facts of tobacco smoke and tobacco-related death; mystified by the extent to which lawyers will tamper with the jury system; laugh at the mishaps on the jury. This book is entertaining and informative, and you will be amazed at the lengths lawyers on both sides go to to ensure they get their verdict. Grisham proves the Jury system is like a football game, and the jury is often the football

I Dreamed of Africa (tie-in edition) - book cover picture

After having read the book, then seen the movie and still loving the story line, I would recommend this delightful autobiography to anyone. At times happy, other times tearful, this book/film is all the more real because of the well composed story and well acted movie.
Kuki Gallman was everything I had imagined her to be after having seen the film. And having found how to correctly pronounce Paolo's name was another bonus!
When Kuki and her husband Paolo uproot themselves to the wildness of Africa they are faced with many new difficulties, which they overcome in time.
There are quite notable differences between the film and movie and one that perturbed me immensely was that Paolo's wife and two daughters from a previous marriage are excluded from the film. I believed them to have played an important role in the book, but the film producers obviously didn't share this insight.

Excellent review of Vietnam literature

The Vietnam Reader : The Definitive Collection of Fiction and Nonfiction on the War - book cover picture

... O'Nan has put together some of the best literature written by Americans about the Vietnam War since the late '60s. A quick look at the table of contents should put anyone's doubts to rest--especially since O'Nan has included a generous amount of space to Tim O'Brien, certainly the finest American writer about the Vietnam War. I had two problems with this book, besides the fact that this should be available in hardback. 1) O'Nan has failed to include anything from Thom Jones's book "The Pugilist at Rest"--an excellent writer, close on O'Brien's tail in terms of sheer storytelling. 2) This book includes nothing by Vietnamese writers--which I find a huge oversight...
This book does not pretend to be history...

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

In 1970 I read "The Lord of the Rings" for the first time. It was like nothing I'd ever read, and it kind of spoiled fantasy for me ever since, because I started with the best and nothing else measures up (well, maybe Narnia). I've read it pretty much every year since, including once out loud to my children. In 1978 my husband gave me the red-leather volume as a wedding present, and it's one of my prized possessions. I have other copies to sling around, but I keep that one at home to read carefully and reverently. I don't know if it's real leather or not, but it's certainly beautiful. Ringers call it the "Red Book", after Bilbo's Red Book of Westmarch. If I close my eyes I can call up the evocative smell of its pages, and see the beautful elven calligraphy in the margins. My husband also gave me the companion volume of "The Hobbit" in green leather. If you get this book, you should get that as well.

Animal Farm : A Fairy Story (Classic, 20th-Century, Audio) - book cover picture

Like most books i end up reading, this one was for my english class. Naturally sceptical at first, considering I'm a sophmore reading what seemed like a silly childrens book, I began reading through the tiny little book. It came to me as a great surprise that this was no children's book at all. The tone it sets is that of an angry old man trying to scare his grandchildren through the medium of a story. That's the great irony in this book: that it seems innocent at first, but then burns communism in such a great way that would make any true capitalist laugh. And since the book's short, your really not losing too much by reading this. its A great read for your time.
