When Bad Things Happen to Good People - book cover picture

I read When Bad Things Happen to Good People following the death of my infant daughter. As I struggled to make sense of what had happened, Rabbi Kushner's book became the singularly most important element in helping me to come to peace with my experience. Kushner reminds us that the one thing we can still do for our dead loved one is to ensure that they will remembered in a positive way by others. We do this through our own personal growth from the experience, and by continuing to live purposeful and meaningful lives. This book changed my life. I have read all of Rabbi Kushner's books and have found his philosophy to be among the most insightful and spiritually enlightening of our time. If you have found yourself shaken to the very foundation of your being by a loss or other significant event in your life, this book will provide you with food for thought as you attempt to create new meaning in your life.

Interesting Times (Discworld Novels (Audio)) - book cover picture

This book is really good if what you want is a follow on of the first Discworld books 'The colour of magic' and 'The light Fantastic'. It involves the return of Rincewind the wizard who can't even spell wizard, who is transported to the Agatean Empire to assist an army made up of children to overrun the emperor. But the best part about this book is the Luggage who returns which the same great character that only a box on leg can have. But in this he thinks that he is free and so he does what all free animals do, needless to say this involves a Lady Luggage.A great story!!!!Five exclamation marks that means I'm mad about it!!!!

English Grammar: Principles and Facts, Second Edition - book cover picture

This book is wonderful. It contains a bevvy of information on syntactic structures, not just in the English language, but from languages around the world. It is not, as some might expect, a "do-this-don't-do-that" prescriptivist manual on how to write or speak; if that is what you need, look elsewhere. There are plenty of books that can tell you not to end sentences with prepositions, or what a split infinitive is. This book explores living language in all of its wonderful vitality.

The Three Musketeers : An Abridgement by Lord Sudley (Puffin Classics) - book cover picture

The Three Musketeers is a classic story of love and deceit. The story focuses around the journeys of D'Artagnan, in his quest to become a member of the King's elite guard unit, the Musketeers. Many of these journeys end up in life or death situations, and the young Gascon must rely heavily on the companionship of his three Musketeer friends, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, for survival. The plot contains many twists, and several of the characters are not who they appear to be. Even though the book is fairly long, it always kept me hooked with its adventurous plot and action filled fight scenes. If you enjoy a great tale of love, companionship, deceit, and betrayal, and have some time on your hands, this book is a must read.

Wringer (Newbery Honor Book) - book cover picture

It is a hot day outside, and inside Palmer's heart.Pigeon Day is exciting and depressing. Palmer is expected to wring pigeons' necks which is against his will. He doesn't want to after he had his own pigeon for a while. You will go through fun and exciting adventures in this book. This book is a fiction book that is set in the city. Palmer's parents think his so called friends are rude, obnoxious pigs. Palmer doesn't know what to think. I liked this novel because it was fun, exciting, and you feel like you're really in the book. I wanted Palmer to stand up to the gang instead of just standing and watching. I felt this book deserved a five star rating.

Of Two Minds (Point Fantasy) - book cover picture

This book was an absolute edge-of-your-seat adventure. A definite page turner and full of suspense! I recommend this book to children of all ages. Coren is a headstrong,thoughtful boy who fears life and everything in it but still stands up for what he believes in. Lenora is a feisty, spirited, young girl with an incredible imagination. Together the two are the most unbelievable pair in book history. Great Job Carol and Perry!!

Great reference for the IPA

Handbook of the International Phonetic Association : A Guide to the Use of the International Phonetic Alphabet - book cover picture

This is a really nifty little book. It outlines the nature and history of the International Phonetic Alphabet, provides extremely useful, compact charts of IPA phonetic symbols, and illustrates the use of the IPA by giving descriptions of the sound systems of a wide variety of languages. I was pleasantly surprised by the eclectic choice of example languages (e.g. Amharic, Galician, Catalan, Tukang Besi). If you're at all interested in linguistics or just curious about languages in general, this is a great find at a great price.

World Poetry: An Anthology of Verse from Antiquity to Our Time - book cover picture

I have bought several copies of this book to give to people who mean something to me. When I share a poem from this work I am often questioned about "where did you find that"? The range is enormous and the selection of latin poetry in particular is just great. (Even the translation versions are selected carefully) The authors had a great sense of passion, humor and sensuality in their selections. I don't care if someone else thinks their favorite poem is missing...If I had just one book of poetry to keep this would be it.
