The Name of the Rose - book cover picture

Decide how you want to read this book: As a detective story, a theological work, a philosophical work or as an historical work. Once you've read it in your chosen way, read it again and new nuances will open up to you.This is Eco's most symbolically rich work, studying the contrasts of rationalism and religious fanaticism. The author explores the religious sub-concious and does it engrossingly. Also made into a film with Sean Connery, Christian Slater and F. Murray Abrahams.It is perhaps excelled by Foucault's Pendulum, but at all costs avoid The Island of the Day Before. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

A Timeless Classic


Book title: In His Steps
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
In His Steps - book cover picture

First published In 1896, this book stands alone as one of the simplest, yet most life-changing works of fiction ever written.

The question posed in the book has launched several generations of reechoing "What Would Jesus Do?" In the re-write by great-grandson, Garrett Sheldon, the story remains true to the original and just as life-changing.

The very simplicity of the story has blinded some to the depth of the message, but after more than 107 years and 50,000,000 copies, it continues to rank among the best books ever written.

A true Classic that has stood the test of time by any criteria.

Possibly the greatest American Novel ever-written


Book title: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Audio Cassette
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - book cover picture

Mark Twain's "The Adventure's of Huckleberry Finn," is arguably the greatest American novel ever-written. Twain in his characteristic satiric fashion constructs an avator for freedom in Huckleberry Finn, and a comment on American society in the 1800s through his beautiful idiomatic prose. As Huck winds down the meandering Mississippi, the reader is wisked away on a page-turning sojourn like no other. However, most readers will make this book more than a sojourn; this book will become a torn and tattered escape that barely rests on their bookshelves before going on another journey with another mind. A 10 out of 10, which symbolizes the beauty of literature, and the real reason why reading a book will exist long after computers become a trite household appliance- this book is transportable and 2 1/2 inches of sure beauty. No metal, no chips, just literary genius

Any Prospective Doctor Should Read this Book


Book title: Intern Blues
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Intern Blues - book cover picture

I am 17 years old and I was thinking about being a doctor. I had read all the general guides on the road to becoming a physician that included information on schooling and standardized tests. But what I was really looking for were testimonials, stories of doctors who decided to take the hard route and made it. This book helped me to reaffirm my decision to become a doctor for after finishing it, I realize what I am getting myself into. What they gain through one year of absoulte hell is more valuable than all the riches in the world. Even if you don't plan on becoming a doctor, read this book anyways to see what doctors have to go through to get where they are. I know I'll never look at a doctor the same way again.

The Truth of the Raid at Somalia

Black Hawk Down: A Story of Modern War - book cover picture

The book is a minute by minute account of raid into inner city Mogadishu, Somalia in 1993. After the movie came out, I had never really thought about reading the book until recently. In doing so I fonud that Mark Bowden's explaination of the raid at Mogadishu was more than in depth, but with such detail that it felt as though you were there. Bowden clearly exhibits the tactical precision that the Delta Force and Rangers carry out during the assault. Mark Bowden also shows what these soldiers were faced with and what they had to do now that their hopes of successfully completing their mission were shot when the crew of Super-Six One was shot out of the sky. Aside from watching the movie, the book let me realize that there was a lot more that went on than the securing of two downed MH-60 Black Hawk helicopters. Mark Bowden helps to realize the idea and inspiration that can be found during the raid at Somalia in 1993, 'LEAVE NO MAN BEHIND'.

The Pilates Body Kit: An Interactive Fitness Program to Strengthen, Streamline, and Tone (includes 2 audio cds, flash cards & workbook) - book cover picture

As a beginner to Pilates, I find Brooke Siler's books and methods easy to understand and follow ... I travel a lot and most hotels do not supply a DVD/VHS player in their rooms. Even if they did, personally I would stay away from the DVD/VHS versions of Pilates. Unlike other workout routines, Pilates is not just a physical one. It is also a mental exercise. Watching a video while trying to concentrate on the interaction of one's body, mind, and Pilates would be too distracting for me. The other advantage of the audio book is that using my portable CD-player, I have the freedom to take my Pilates outdoors to the park or to the beach. Well done Ms. Siler for giving us the best of Pilates and the mobility to take our Pilates with us, no matter where we go. end.

Dry : A Memoir - book cover picture

I am female, not gay, not a recovering alcoholic or recovering anything, and this is one of the best books I have ever read. Augusten Burroughs tells his story with such uncensored honesty, revealing every aspect of himself, warts and all, that I found it absolutely compelling. I thought there couldn't be a better writer than Pat Conroy, but this guy is right up there with him. Can't wait for the next book!

Sunne in Splendour - book cover picture

This amazing book will have you spellbound within minutes. It is utterly brilliant. Sharon Penman breaths the very life into Richard the Third, Edward the Fourth and their contemporaries. Even if you are familiar with history and their story, you will never feel the same way about them again. Penman is an inspired writer and as such, she makes you feel as if you know the characters and truly understand their motivations. If you only read one book about the Wars of the Roses, this is the one to read.

The Single Girl's Guide to Marrying a Man, His Kids, and His Ex-Wife : Becoming A Stepmother With Humor And Grace - book cover picture

"The Single Girl's Guide to Marrying a Man, His Kids, and His Ex-Wife" is a joy to read. With humor and a positive attitude, Sally Bjornsen looks at her life as a stepmother and new wife and shares her trials and tribulations. She is honest and self-critical and doesn't spare the embarrassing details. For those of us in a similar situation, it is a welcome relief knowing that we are not alone in dealing with the difficulties of blending families while adjusting to the new world of being married. Once I started reading, it was difficult to put the book down.

A must read for any woman marrying a man with children, for those with friends becoming stepmothers, and for anybody simply interested in another look at the conflicts that arise in any new marriage (with or without children!)

I have bought 8+ copies and am giving them to all of my friends!

A Short History of the Civil War : Ordeal by Fire - book cover picture

This book was written by a master craftsman of words. This is not a book that a ten year old could easily read but any teenager who is willing to use a dictionary will find this rewarding. I originally read this over thirty years ago and was thrilled to find that it was once again in print as my copy, a paperback finally fell apart from being read so many times. This is one book that gives Gibbon a run for his money. If only Mr. Pratt had tackled the Roman Empire or Julius Caesar, that would have been some book. Once again run do not walk to get this book into your shopping cart.
