Freelance Writing for Magazines and Newspapers: Breaking in Without Selling Out (Harperresource Book) - book cover picture

A published freelancer for over a year now, I found Yudkin's book to be the best one that I have read on non-fiction freelance writing. I feel that her advice is timeless and very applicable to the markets out there for the freelance writer today.
The advice she gives is helpful for both the beginner and the more experienced writer, and it is presented in a very clear, specific manner.
If a person could only buy one book on freelancing--this should be it.

The First America : The Spanish Monarchy, Creole Patriots and the Liberal State 1492-1866 - book cover picture

D. A. Brading is an authoritative scholar in Spanish American studies. His main focus is in the Mexican past and he has definately earned the respect of his collegues and those intrested in history world-wide. This book gives an impressionable account od Latin America, from the rise of the Spanish Empire and the development of Spanish colonialism to the the effective end of imperial control in the late nineteenth century. The Spanish empire and system of colonization differs greatly from English and even Portugese systems and further reading will illustrate that. Many scholars believe it explains the difficult experience of state building of the Latin American states during the nineteenth century. If you'd like more knowledge about the Spanish American past, this book is a definate must read.

It Was on Fire When I Lay Down on It - book cover picture

This book has touched me more than any other one I've ever read. I sometimes refer to it as my personal bible. Fulghum's ideas on the simple things in life always give me hope that life isn't as bad as I sometimes think it is. This book will make you think about things in a different way. Personally, I carry it with me wherever I go and use the stories to apply to some of the hardest subjects in life.

A good young-adult love story

Companions of the Night - book cover picture

I read this book several years ago and still have it on my bookshelf. It's a nice short young adult story about a vampire and a teenage girl. This girl gets mixed up in a bad situation and is forced to live it out due to circumstances. She is at the laundry-mat the first time she meets Ethan, the vampire. He is being hunted down by a gang (of whom he previously killed a member of), and she inadvertantly helps him get away. Her family is now taken hostage by this gang, and you get the gist of what is going on. It's well written, very interesting, nice and complete. I think the ending is what everyone who likes this genre expects, but for this story, it was fitting. There wasn't a dull moment, though sometimes I think it's a little too carried away. I enjoyed it though, and would recommend it to anyone interested in light, vampire-related love stories.

A Brief History of Time - book cover picture

Though there exist many classical textbooks about cosmology and quantum mechanics in popular science, this one can be surely distinguished for its clarity and completeness about the subject. The author has been able to lead the reader from simple and usual concepts to advanced and up-to-date unified theories. Easy to understand, but it leaves to the reader the view of the large front modern physics is facing

Seriously! We all have to die someday and can learn something from this book Tuesdays with Morrie. OMG I had so many emotions in this book. It is a true story and a good one. It teaches and teaches and teaches some more. We all need a lesson where we are not biased and are not head strong like when we are argumentative or shallow and this book makes us all sit down and think about our lives and how we should do the best to enjoy it and laugh and be funny while being real to our core. A book for all of the human race.

Sister, Sister - book cover picture

I've been trying to read Eric Jerome Dickey's books for sometime and just started last month. It took me a week to read and that was because I had to make myself put it down so I could go to work and do other things that needed to be done. The characters were very real and I laughed a lot. I started "Friends and Lovers" as soon as I finished "Sister, Sister" and I loved every bit of it too. I'm an Eric Jerome Dickey fan now and I hate that it took me so long. Good work Eric!

A Great Historical Novel !

Book title: Noble House
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Noble House - book cover picture

The book Noble House is an absolutely entrancing roller-coaster ride of a adventure! It is an account based on the famous trading house giant Jardine Matheson and Co. of Hong Kong which was founded in the early 19th century by William Jardine (the Dirk Struan of Clavell's Tai-Pan). This book is absolutely a stunning tour-de-force of knowledge of the Bysantine complexities of Hong Kong's social and political intrigue- where long memories trigger hatreds and alliances that are invisible to those ignorant of custom and hisotry.This novel absolutely gripped me. It has provided me with THOUSANDS of dollars of entertainment for a few pennies per hour! Read the first few pages, and you will be hooked! it is that good.

Cooking Thin with Chef Kathleen: 200 Easy Recipes for Healthy Weight Loss - book cover picture

I'd recommend this book on the basis of the asparagus recipe alone - it's fast, easy and fabulous. I've tried 12 of the veggie and entree recipes so far, and every one is a keeper. I could do without the pep-talk in the first third of the book, but I understand that's part of the author's persona. I pretty much ignored the comments from her mom and dad or whoever throughout, although I thought the "Queen's coming to Dinner" suggestions for making the recipes more elegant for company were helpful. To be honest, the only time the portion/nutrition info even occured to me was when I made the granola and wondered what an "individual portion" was. How wrong can I go with asparagus and a tablespoon of olive oil, or carmelized onions in a (small) sweet potato instead of loads of butter? I wanted some new and yummy ways to prepare healthy meals for my family and for that purpose this book delivered.
