Putting Frindle to Paper


Book title: Frindle
Rating: 5/5
Binding: School & Library Binding
Frindle - book cover picture

Mischievous Nicholas Allen, a fifth grader, invents the word "frindle as a replacement for "pen" when his teacher explains that words become words because we all decide what goes into dictionaries. To his teacher's dismay he convinces his friends to swear off the word "pen" and use "frindle" instead everywhere. His teacher unsucessfully tries to stop this with penalties. Despite his teacher and his principal's efforts "frindle" catches on and soon the whole school is defiantly using that word exclusively. The word spreads around town when a local paper picks up the story. Eventually the whole country hears about this new fad as Nick ends up on national broadcast television talking about frindles."Frindle" is a heartwarming and funny little book. I read the book in one sitting, with a smile on my face the whole time. Yes, this is a children's book, but adults will love it as well.

The Very Persistent Gappers of Frip - book cover picture

Loved it, a perfect bathroom read. I do think Mintonmedia's review is, perhaps, yes, a little too oversensitive. Or, again, to think me twice about it, perhaps even not sensitive enough. Are Saunders and Smith poking fun? Oh yes, most certainly, but I think they point their sticky writing/painting fingers at all of us pious American dreamers (certainly not just those who happen to have worked their way here from the warm med-bath of Western Civilization).

A Child Called "It": One Child's Courage to Survive - book cover picture

A CHILD CALLED IT, IS UPLIFTING FOR ME. IT HELPED ME UNDERSTAND THAT I AM NORMAL. I WAS ABUSED AS A CHILD, NOT AS SEVERELY AS DAVID, BUT IT MADE AN IMPACT ON MY LIFE. I AM NORMAL. MY UNEXPLAINED FEELINGS OF SORROW AND ANGER, ARE NORMAL. THIS BOOK HELPED ME KNOW THAT THERE ARE OTHERS WITH SIMILAR BACKGROUNDS. IT IS SAD TO READ THE BOOK, BUT THIS IS REALITY. WHEN DAVID, IN BOOK 2 TALKS ABOUT COMMERCIAL BREAKS, AND HOW HE DREADED THEM, I CAN RELATE WITH THAT. HOW CAN WE STOP THE CIRCLE OF ABUSE, UNLESS WE ACKNOWLEDGE IT? WE NEED TO ADMIT, CONFRONT THE ABUSE, AND FROM THERE GO ON, AND BETTER OURSELVES AND OUR WAY OF HANDLING THINGS. I THINK THAT DAVID PELZER IS A BRAVE MAN. I HAVE NEVER TALKED ABOUT MY ABUSE, AND NEVER KNEW HOW, UNTIL I READ HIS BOOK. THESE BOOKS HAVE BEEN A SORT OF THERAPY FOR ME. I AM A GOOD PERSON, AND I CAN SAY IT NOW. I JUST HOPE THAT ALL WHO READ IT, LEARN FROM IT. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME!

Winning by Losing : Drop the Weight, Change Your Life - book cover picture

What I like so much about this book is the fact that it is interactive. It has formulas and quizes to help you identify how many calories you burn in a day, how many calories you burn doing all different types of exercise, what types of foods you should be eating and which of the popular diets are ideal for you and why. It even gives you a weight chart so you can define your weight loss goals. There is nothing missing from this book. Jillian has chapters on label reading, eating out, a detailed 12 week exercise program. Seriously, for the person willing to do the work - you can't go wrong here because she puts the power in your hands!

On the Way Home: The Diary of a Trip from South Dakota to Mansfield, Missouri, in 1894 - book cover picture

This is an amazing, must-read for any Little House fan. We finally get to learn what happens after The First Four Years, and although there is some struggle and hardship, this story is so much more uplifting than that of The First Four Years, which to me was somewhat of a depressing book. On the Way Home is more reminscient of the first eight books of the original Little House series. I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the Mansfield house on vacation shortly after reading this book. I found the Ozarks to be exactly as I pictured them while reading this book. Highly recommended.

Must-have addition to modern theological libraries


Book title: Thomas Merton Reader
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Thomas Merton Reader - book cover picture

An interesting, well-organized anthology of Merton's total works. This collection demonstrates the value of having the author contribute to the production of an anthology. Merton's works encompass a dramatic range of theological and literary style, and this anthology deals fairly with each. From the Augustinian Seven Storey Mountain, to Thoureau-like literary reviews and journals, and even to some Harlem Renaissance-like poetry, this anthology has it all. Merton in all his brilliance... a must read, and a must-have addition to any modern theological library, Catholic or not.

The Crying of Lot 49 - book cover picture

Sure, some people like some books and some like others, but anyone who claims that this book is simply unreadable or that you can appreciate it only on some high literary plain has cheese for brains.This book is totally readable and extremely entertaining. It is funny, irreverent, and outrageous. It is true that Pynchon is brilliant and that the point of the book won't be grasped by everyone (although "ungraspable" cannot be true, because people have grasped it and they're not lying), but a simpler, surface-reading of this book is easy and fun.If you "can't read it," you can't read.

A Sympathetic Understanding of the Child: Birth to Sixteen (3rd Edition) - book cover picture

I first encountered this book as an asigned text in graduate school. It was the first book that explained to me (by inference) why so many kids are really ready to drop out of school by fifth grade. Children are concrete learners being taught by abstract methods in primary grades and middle school. Indeed, only about 1/4 of Freshmen in high school are truly capable of abstract reasoning, let alone the younger children. This book is wonderful to help teachers and parents better understand the children in their lives and be of real help to their growing and learning through childhood.

The elegant universe: Superstrings, hidden dimensions, and the quest for the ultimate theory - book cover picture

Greene is amazing in making this very complex (and yes, elegant) theory accessible to the non- "mathematically minded reader". I've wanted to read about string theory for awhile but always was intimidated. But Greene presents clear and easy to understand examples to illustrate these formidable concepts. It's a great read! I look forward to whatever Mr. Green decides to write next.

Sauces : Classical and Contemporary Sauce Making - book cover picture

A well-made sauce can add exquisite flavour and artistic flare to a meal (as well as "cover up" a dish that is overdone or lacking in flavour). Making a delicious sauce is both a science and an art to which James Peterson brings clarity. Time will show "Classic and Comtemporary Sauce Making" to be a classic included in both the novice cook's and professional chef's repetoire of cookbooks.
