These Is My Words: The Diary of Sarah Agnes Prine, 1881-1901 : A Novel - book cover picture

This was one of the best books I've read in years. The heroine is a perfect mix of courage and intellectual curiosity. She's easy to root for. The hero appreciates her unique charms and pursues her until she realizes her true feelings. The plotline is fast and furious, with a very realistic portrayal of the era. Not for those who like lighthearted love and laughter - a lot of characters die, including several that are very close to the hero and heroine. But you will laugh occasionally and cry unashamedly at the ending. Can't wait to see what else this author has up her sleeve!

The DaVinci Code

Book title: The Da Vinci Code

The Da Vinci Code - book cover picture

I read this fabulous book about a week before I went to Paris and felt compelled to go to Saint-Sulpice and look for the Rose Line. I figure i was just being a big dork, but then I noticed three of couple searching the floor of the church. I studied then for a while and then said, "Davinci Code?" To which they all began to laugh and responsed with a yes.
Dan Brown has the most amazing ability to weave an ancient legend into a modern day tale, and DaVinci Code isn't the only one.
One of the couples scanning the floor of the church informed me that they had just been in Rome and while there they followed the quest in Angels and Demons, another Dan Brown book, through the city.
After reading I can't wait for two things...1) Another Dan Brown book, 2) To return to Rome so I can join in on another quest.

Swimming to Antarctica : Tales of a Long-Distance Swimmer - book cover picture

Lynne Cox has masterfully weaved a powerful and inspiring tale with "Swimming to Antarctica." From the first page, I hung on every word and found it hard to put down this book (Lynne, thanks for keeping me up late at night!). At times, I was near tears as Lynne recounted stories of her youth and obstacles that she had overcome in order to become one of the most prolific long-distance swimmers in the world.

You need not be a swimmer or an endurance athlete to appreciate this book. Any reader who is in search of an ample dose of inspiration is in for a treat with "Swimming to Antarctica." Kudos to Lynne Cox not only for her awe-inspiring swimming feats, but also for having the clarity to share her life with us so vividly.

Practical Guidance on 12 "Classic" Christian Disciplines

Celebration of Discipline: The Path to Spiritual Growth, 25th Anniversary Edition - book cover picture

Although a lifelong Christian and daughter of a Methodist minister, I had never explored certain of the "classic" Christian disciplines that Foster covers. This book provides a wonderful introduction to these topics, as well as new ideas for the disciplines with which I was already familiar. In particular, the friends with whom I read the book and I enjoyed the sequence in which Foster covered the various topics, and the interconnectedness of each of these chapters. Read the book and work through it with the accompanying journal/workbook. Use it as the basis for small group discussions or an organized retreat. Regardless of your background this book will help you learn and grow in your Christian beliefs, and will help you put those beliefs in action in new ways.

A must read for anyone who loves mysteries

Book title: The Body in the Library

The Body in the Library - book cover picture

This was the very first Dame Agatha Christie book that I ever read. Although it is not one of the very best, it is still great, and deserves five stars. Being the first Christie book I ever read, it gave me my first impression of Christie's writing style-a great one. You really had to pay attention to every detail to solve this mystery along with Miss Marple-my favorite amateur sleuth. THE BODY IN THE LIBRARY is a great book and I recommend it to any Christie fan.

The "Fear and Loathing" of the 1990s

Day Job: A Workplace Reader for the Restless Age - book cover picture

This book can be read on many levels. From its unusual layout complete with artistic gems in the margins, to the well researched literary allusions peppered throughout, it's quite an experience. The writing requires a someone delicate read - otherwise much of the subtle nuance could be glossed over - there are many hidden treasures in this book. I have an advanced degree in literature, and I would hold this up there with some of the better things I've read recently. It really captures the zeitgeist of the 90's workplace, as well as the angst-ridden humor of young corporate Americans.

The Fall of Reach (Halo) - book cover picture

This book is really good. The best part about it is that it gives you really good information about the stuff you didn't get to see, or experience in the game(since it's a prequel to the game). It gives you background information about Master Chief, Cortana, Captain Keyes, The Covenant, Master Chief's armor(MJOLNIR), The Spartan Project...everything!. The story begins with Master Chief as a kid, so imagine how much it covers...The author also does a great job of keeping the story interesting and original.To anyone that wants to really understand, and expand their knowledge about the world of Halo...Buy it..Now!

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Book 6) - book cover picture

I thought this book went well with the series. I do not feel that this is the best book in the series, as I liked Prisoner and Pheonix the most so far. However it does make its place in the scheme of the series. I could not put the book down until I was finished. Even then I wanted more. I feel that the book could have been a little more in debth on some issues, but I still enjoyed it. When I finished the book I was looking for more to it, it definately makes you want book 7 to see the end result.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1) - book cover picture

I'm not kidding - I try to read to my children every night, and I usually follow along with them and shut the book when they go down, but after a few chapters, I didn't want to put this one down. A couple of times I read a few chapters ahead - I HAD to read the final chapter the other night even though I put my kids to bed... and I still enjoyed finishing it with them. My eight year old even cheered out loud at the end!This is a great book to share with your children. It is magical, fun, and has something for adults and children alike. What a way to get them into a story - with misfits everyone can relate to, where good does conquer evil, and it is OK to stand up for your friends, and even against them when you feel you have to.As we closed the first book and said goodnight, my oldest child was begging me to start on Book 2 - we will hit that one tonight and we can't wait!!
