Kontakte: A Communicative Approach (Student Edition) - book cover picture

This is a text I used when I was studying German at university, and I have found it generally well laid out book and easy to understand. Each in almost entirely written in German, and each has a theme with examples of of these themes in everday life. The book is full of pictures, which I find conducive to learning. At the end of each chapter, there are explanations of how the grammar works, and a list of vocaulary relevant for the chapter. There are plenty of pictures One review has mentioned that it is not a book for self teaching. I can not comment on this time about that at this stage, however I did have to end my course at university prematurely, and I intend to continue learning from this book.One thing this book does not address, is the new German spelling reforms.

"N is for Neville who died of ennui"


Book title: The Gashlycrumb Tinies
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Gashlycrumb Tinies - book cover picture

But you will not die of ennui if you open this book. It illustrates the misfortunes of 26 children with names A-Z to a ghoulishly humorous rhyme. The cover image of the umbrella wielding symbol of death and his doomed "tinies" is one of the most famous artwork out there; especially in the gothic world. Inside are drawings of the children before or after their sudden deaths. My favorite is "H is for Hector done in by a thug" with a drawing of an innocent schoolboy and two arms holding a long piece of cloth in the background. No doubt this scene was inspired by the barbaric cult that practiced ritual strangulation known as the "Thuggies." The most gruesome drawing is "K is for Kate who was struck with an axe" the rest are more witty than grisly. Like the title, this book is tiny in size as well but big on macabre humor!

Ellen Raskin has created a masterpiece!!


Book title: The Westing Game
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Westing Game - book cover picture

The Westing Game is a fabulous, creative, entertaining, and yet incredibly confusing book!! I have read this book many a time, and if i could rate it 10 stars I would. In fact, if i could rate it 100 stars i would. You really need to read this epic tale about Sam WESTing, Barney NORTHrup, Julian EASTman, Sandy McSOUTHers, and the 15 or 16 heirs a couple times before you get the picture. In this last sentence, I have hidden a big clue to the story's end. Think about it.Turtle (Tabitha-Ruth) Wexler and Berthe Erica Crow play a big part in this story, for reasons of which you will find out when you read the book. Have a good read, and, in the words of Sam Westing, "HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!!"P.S. yes, i know that review was extremely confusing

A-List #3, The: Blonde Ambition : An A-List Novel (A-List) - book cover picture

I love the A-LIST books. I just started reading them last week and I have already read the first three. There are going to be more? The best thing about the books is that they keep you turning the pages so you have to find out what happens next. Blonde Ambition is my favorite of them all because I think that Anna and Danny should be together because she is the most happy when she is with him. I also like how Cammie gets into trouble for what she does to Anna. That was really funny. All my friends are reading these books and you should too!!!!

Animal Ark #01 : Kittens In The Kitchen (Animal Ark Hauntings) - book cover picture

Animal Ark's Kittens in the Kitchen is the best book I have ever read. I have read Tabby in the Tub and that book got me started on the Animal Ark series. I want to read all the kitten books and all the dog books.
I can't wait to read my next Animal Ark book. I want to read the book called The Kitten Who Won First Prize. It sounds really good.
In the book a cat has kittens and Mandy and James have a week to for good homes for the kittens. I like the Animal Ark series because it is about animals and not people.
I give this series 5 stars all the way

An outstanding and credible book

How Babies Talk: The Magic and Mystery of Language in the First Three Years of Life - book cover picture

I found this book extraordinarily helpful in understanding and tracking my daugher's learning. I gained three valuable insights from this book: (1) a clearer understanding of how language acquisition occurs (2) specific examples of how I can assist my child with the language acquisition process (3) a valuable insight to how much my daughter can understand prior to her ability to communicate it.This book brought additional enjoyment because after reading this book, I immediately noticed additional examples of my daughter's progression in language learning that I'd previously overlooked. Additionally, the book contains a balanced mixture of research and specific examples. This combination makes it both credible and readable. I actually found it hard to put down, which is very impressive for a research based book!I'd also highly recommend Baby Signs by Linda Acredolo

Jesus the Dragon Slayer

Chasing the dragon (Hodder Christian paperbacks) - book cover picture

This is an amazing book. Jackie describes how she lives purely by faith, not supported by any missionary society or church, and works fulltime amongst the poorest of the poor and the most wicked of the wicked in the ancient Walled City of Hong Kong. Jackie's ministry is to the drug addicts who "chase the dragon" and the Holy Spirit comes with power and healing to rescue them. Jesus is the Dragon Slayer!I am a Christian Psychologist and I have recently applied to work as a Prison Chaplain. I think God directed me to read this book so that I would know that the Holy Spirit is wanting to help the drug addicts in Australian prisons too.

Smoke and Mirrors: Short Fictions and Illusions - book cover picture

Most of what I would say has already been said in previous reviews. I would simply add my voice to the chorus that praises this collection, and add that Gaiman's skill is such that days, weeks -- ages -- after reading these tales, they will continue to resonate for you. It may be that your perceptions of stray cats is altered, or you find yourself less interested in shopping for bargains, or you will find poetry more accessible, or the night more eerie.....Whatever your flavor, there will be something in this collection for you.

Dork of Cork - book cover picture

I stumbled across The Dork of Cork purely by chance. I was at my local library, researching dwarfism, and this novel popped up amidst the nonfiction titles in the list. What the hey, I took a look, scanned the description on the back cover. Ireland. Hmmm. That resonated with my love of things Celtic. I opened and started skimming the first chapter. That was it. I borrowed it, read it thoroughly, argued with it (and Frank!) all the while, and got a few long journal entries and a decent poem written as a result of my labors. And, of course, I went out and bought a copy of my own. I guess there are some people whose idea of a good time is to just read a book, not to be philosophically engaged by one and analyze the blessed thing to death. But if you are, like myself, one of the latter, do yourself a favor and read The Dork of Cork. It's beautifully written, to boot.

Dare to Repair : A Do-it-Herself Guide to Fixing (Almost) Anything in the Home - book cover picture

Although this book is aimed at women (what with the title and the inspiring classic "Rosie the Riveter" cover -- she was invented to have women join the workforce in typically male industries of welding, mechanics, etc), it really is for everyone. After all, does a broken doorknob/water heater/ lightswitch know if a man or woman is fixing it? Of course not!!!The book clearly illustrates each potential problem in a house and guides the reader in identifying WHAT, exactly, needs fixing, safety precautions to take during each project, and then the how-to of the actual fixing. It is a very handy book to have on your shelf, whether you are renting or own your own home. The cost of the book is very low, and you should consider it an investment as you will no doubt save a lot of money doing your own minor repairs (and of course calling in an expert on what you really SHOULD NOT do yourself for health and safety reasons!! i.e. asbestos cleaning)
