Time Enough for Drums - book cover picture

Don't worry, girl talking!Don't let the mushy cover fool you - this was a GREAT book. Jem is spunky, and disobedient. She loathes her "tory" tutor John Ried, more than anyone on earth. But, when Jem discovers a secret about her mysterious tutor, her hatred turns into love, thus beginning the romance. I've never been a fan of too much romance - one or two love scenes are enough. That's why I was hesitant about looking at this book. But, trusting the background of the story, I read it, and LOVED it! I'm glad there wasn't too much romance, cause too much just isn't good. Just mushy. The cover of the book is annoying, and destroys the perspective of future "picker-uppers." If you enjoy anything by Ann Rinaldi, you'll sure love this!!

Dinosaur Roar! (Picture Puffin S.) - book cover picture

As a mom of two boys-(ages 20 months and 32 months) this book has been a hit since the day I purchased it. The bright colored pictures and sounds of the dinosaurs really hold the interest of my children. Both of my children continue to request this book to be read to them again and again... As a parent, this has also been a great learning book about opposites,e.g.- dirty and clean, dinosaurs roar and squeak). A truly terrific book for young toddlers of 1 1/2 to 3 1/2 years of age.

I thought this was a love story between a bear and a dragon?

The Bear and the Dragon - book cover picture

First things first, this is obviously fiction, no way a dragon(and just between us this dragon is actually not very good looking) could in anyway win the love and affection of a bear. I mean he has those big claws and teeth...and all the dragon can do is blow fire...flamer. If you want a really good love triangle rent "A Muppet Movie", many don't see that Kermit is actually in love with Gonzo...it is suttle but it's there, look hard. Besides there where no pictures! I haven't spent the last nine years in nineth grade for nothing. I don't even get the symbolism between the dragons cousin and the mongoose, and what was he doing with toothpicks? But all in all I laughed, I cried and it was a roller coaster of emotions....I LOVED IT!!!

Sauces : Classical and Contemporary Sauce Making - book cover picture

This book is excellent for anyone who enjoys cooking whether they're a merely competent cook or a highly skilled chef. Peterson infuses the book with his encyclopedic knowledge of all things epicurian and a subtle sense of humor in a way that makes it eminently readable and useful.The real benefit is that it provides the fundamentals behind making sauces. Anyone looking to expand their repetoire by learning how to make new and creative sauces, or who just needs clear direction on how to make the classics will enjoy this book.Some may find the amount of technical terminology (glaces, coulis, etc.) daunting at first, but Peterson presents the terms and concepts in a way that can be readily understood. "Sauces" is not a recipe book per se, but a first rate instruction manual that happens to include many good recipes. The recipes are clear, but require some grasp of cooking basics.

Sarum : The Novel of England - book cover picture

How can an author treat the history of a country in one volume? Read Rutherfurd's "Sarum" and find out. It spans an incredible time period (pre-historic times to the present day). He does so in an immensly interesting and readable way. It's easily one of the best books I've ever read. Rutherford has a new book out called "London", and if it's anything like "Sarum" it's sure to be a winner!

I love this book. The first time I read it was in hardcover, something about it was spellbinding. I cry sometimes when I read it. My favorite characters are Kylie, Gillian, Gideon, & Sally b/c I can relate to what they're going through--well, Kylie & Gideon more than Sally & Gillian b/c I haven't been around *that* long yet--but...you get the picture. I was a bit disappointed by the movie, however...

Yet another inspiration.......

Nineteen Eighty-Four (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics S.) - book cover picture

In my British Lit class we had to read a wide variety of books. From Jane Eyre to Brave New World to 1984, I enjoyed every one. 1984 is a truely inspirational book that engrossed me in it until I finished, two weeks earlier than we were supposed to. It, as well as all the other books I read in that class, made me want to go back to the classics and read them. It gave me inspiration that not all classics are dull and boring.

Man Who Listens to Horses Notes - book cover picture

I loved this book on several levels. First, being a horse lover I appreciated the many treasures on horse training that were sewn throughout the book. Second, the spirit of Monty Roberts, man and boy is delightful in spite of the strange and often cruel childhood that he endured through dedication to high ideals of honesty and hard work. I was moved to tears. Third the stories of time he spent in the very movies that I loved as a kid were very enjoyable. I highly recommend this book!

Only Guide To Winning Investment Strategy You'll Ever Need,The : Index Funds and Beyond--The Way Smart Money Creates Wealth Today - book cover picture

Who said by investing in index funds one has to settle for average returns? Why has Modern Portfolio Theory been explained incorrectly? Why does Active Portfolio Management underperform the market? These are some of the issues Larry Swedroe explains in his excellent book WINNING INVESTMENT STRATEGY. There is much more, too, such as Mr.Swedroe`s research going back to 1973 taking the reader through bull and bear markets. If you`re worried about risk Mr.Swedroe has an asset allocation just for you and shows you that you may get a decent return even though you`re risk tolerence is low. If you don`t know what your risk tolerance is, Mr. Swedroe has what he calls the The Stomach Acid Test which will guide you to finding the best asset allocation for you. Mr. Swedroe takes on a complex subject and makes the reading easy. He is to be congratulated for his effort. --------------Don S.--- Roosevelt Island New York N.Y.
