How to Get What You Want In Life With the Money You Already Have - book cover picture

I haven't quite finished the book yet, but was gratified to learn that I already use a few of Ms. Keeffe's techniques, specifically paying the minimum on cards (harder than it sounds), letting money pile up in a couple of seldom-accessed accounts, and keeping a jar, being amazed at how fast it adds up. Ms. Keeffe's book added structure and purpose to these activities, that is, label the jar with a specific goal, and label individual accounts likewise. (I still only use envelopes, but that works too.) These may seem simple and wrong-headed depending on your background, but they ARE a practical way to keep one's dreams in view while systematically attaining them. It's kind of hard to remember to change my thinking and behavior, but the reward will definitely be worth it for me. My thanks to Ms. Keeffe for the boost.

A Journey to the End of the Millennium - A Novel of the Middle Ages - book cover picture

The positive reviews are right. This is a marvelous book. It weaves a medieval tapestry series from strands of religious law and religious conflict, gender and sexuality, geography and climate, race, culture and ethnicity. Its world -- Paris, Worms and Tangiers in the year 999 C.E. -- is well-researched and vividly imagined. This world feels strange and, at times, truly frightening in its prmitiveness. But it is also very, very familiar. The parallels it draws between Y1K and Y2K are subtle, but they are very much there. This book is dealing with very important issues. It will be with me for a long time.

Gives a reasonably good end to the series

Book title: Foundation and Earth

Foundation and Earth - book cover picture

I have to start by saying, read Asimov's "End of Eternity". It is by far his best SF work and may be the best SF novel I've ever read.I think a lot of the reviews have been unduly harsh on Foundation and Earth. I thought this book was engaging and had a pretty good end that has me excited to go read the robot and empire novels. Also, while the book really gave an end to the series in a meaningful way, it did leave open a possible future story that the Asimov estate could allow someone to write.

Distant Mirror:  The Calamitous 14th Century - book cover picture

While "A Distant Mirror" uses the life of a certain French noble as a thread of continuity, it goes beyond his biography. It is a thick, exhaustive tome of scholarly research which details the main events of 14th century Western Europe and England. The main themes are 1) the corruption of the nobles and the Church, 2) the wars of England upon France, and the soldiers who subsequently became mercenaries who continued to ravage France, and 3) the Black Death, which wiped out about half the population of Europe in succeeding waves over 50 years. The description of the populace's reaction to the plague was particularly interesting - people at first thought it was a scourge from God and the end of the world was at hand. Then as it hit again and again and the world didn't end, they drew their own conclusions.

I highly recommend it.

A very nice touch.

Book title: Northern Lights
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Northern Lights - book cover picture

As always Mis. Roberts, has out done herself. This was very well put together and thought out. I am pretty good in guessing who did the killing but in this one it was a shocker. Now I want to go and see the Northern Lights, never knew any place like that until I reed this awesome book. But maybe in the Summer time. I love the way she talked about the glacier and just reading it made me cold. I loved it though and if you haven't pick up a copy yet. It is another Roberts, MUST.
