George Anderson's Lessons from the Light: Extraordinary Messages of Comfort and Hope from the Other Side - book cover picture

Since my son passed away a few months ago, I have been reading everything I can get my hands on on the subject of life after death. George Anderson's books, and more specifically, "Lessons from the Light" are the most poignant and beautifully written. The reader gets the sense that this is a man who sincerely cares about the people he is helping and takes his work very seriously. For me, personally, I enjoy how he incorporates his religious background into his experiences in mediumship. I have shared "Lessons from the Light" with others (especially the sceptics!) and they, like me, have loved it and have been very moved by Mr. Anderson's stories and opinions on life on the Other Side. It is spiritually soothing reading at a time of loss and sadness.I owe a debt of gratitude to him for making the road a little easier...and definitely more beautiful. I now truly believe I will see my son again someday.

Binding: Paperback
John Brown, Rose and the Midnight Cat - book cover picture

John Brown is a large shaggy dog living contentedly with Rose. When a cat arrives needing food and love, Rose is ready to open her heart and home to the new arrival, but John Brown has a very hard time sharing Rose, and watching Rose take care for someone else. By the book's end, John Brown has changed. In simple words and marvelous pictures, this book helps children - and the adults reading to them - consider a difficult and complicated emotion: jealousy. The perfect book to help children get ready for a baby brother or sister, it's too bad it isn't easier to find.

The Long Ships: A Saga of the Viking Age - book cover picture

I'd never heard of this book till a Swedish friend gave it to me recently. So I was surprised to see from the Amazon reviews what a devoted readership it has. I agree with you all -- it's a great book.My suggestion for those who are trying to get a copy: visit Stockholm! It's readily available there in paperback in English translation -- still with the awful cover many of you commented on (I was almost embarrassed to read it in the tram on the way to and from work...).

One of my favorite books

Book title: The Thorn Birds
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Thorn Birds - book cover picture

I have a few books that I always return to and The Thorn birds is one of those. It is, in my humble opinion, one of the greatest love stories of all ages, one that could stand the comparison with the love story of Romeo and Juliette or Arthur, Guinevere and Lancelot... Every time I read it, I discovered something new. The characters are complex, true. It is a story about love and fate. A beautiful love story and so a sad one. Because the best can be reached only by a great suffering... or so says the legend of The Thorn birds.

Not Sugar Coated-Its Real Life

Binding: Hardcover
Running with Scissors - book cover picture

No this book is not sugar coated, and yes, some of the scenes in the book are graphic. but, in my opinion the book is suppose to be this way so that you can get the whole effect of what this author has been through in his life, what led him in to some of the things he did and the courage he had to overcome.
I say "Running With Scissors" is a highly ranked book like other emotional-pwer packed books such as Dry, Paper Life and Nightmares Echo

The best way to wonder "What if I did it this way?"

Book title: Replay
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Replay - book cover picture

I don't know where to start concerning how this book has affected me. Probably the best compliment I can offer is this is one of the handful of books I read once a year, and I have been doing that for this book for six years. It never gets tired, old, redundant, whatever. Perhaps treating the book that way parallels what Jeff, the protagonist, goes through.How magnificent would it be to relive your life, from 18 years old to 43? Not travelling by machine, but through your conscious mind, knowing what you know, and trying to turn it to your advantage. What could possibly go wrong? Read.The theme of the book, not wasting the time we have, is universal and comes through here very poignantly, practically to the point of wanting to call the ones who mean the most to you and tell them how much so. Skeptical? Read.Buy it, read it, and learn from it.

It's not just about pianos

The Piano Shop on the Left Bank: Discovering a Forgotten Passion in a Paris Atelier - book cover picture

Yes, of course this little book is a love letter to the piano. But it lives because of the people who share their lives with the instrument: an itinerant piano tuner, a self-deprecating entrepreneur, an accompanist, a teacher, and a hair-raising piano mover. It is also a love letter to Paris from a man who achieved the dream of many Americans to live and be at home in that wonderful, maddening city.I hope this book will be the first of many from this author, he writes with elegance.

Ophelia Speaks : Adolescent Girls Write About Their Search for Self - book cover picture

It's about time! Why is it that men and women who grew up in a different era think they know what's going on with us today? The problems of thirty years ago are not the same problems of today. We teenage girls face a lot more serious issues than we used to. I am so very proud of those girls for telling the truth and enlightening all of us. I've grown up with a very sheltered lifestyle, but even I can relate and learn from what these girls are telling everyone. This book is full of true stories involving abuse, eating disorders, dating, rape and many more things a teenage girl must face. This might just be me, but whenever I see people trying to analize the female population to see what makes them tick and to try and figure out why we do what we do, I just want to throw up. No one has the right to decide what we are feeling unless they themselves have gone through it. If you wish to know why we're so messed up, ask us.

Freakonomics : A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything - book cover picture

I am an econ grad student and found this book to be excellent for both specialists and lay-readers. It is quite a challenge to use economic tools to challenge conventional wisdom in a manner that is both accessible and interesting to Joe Sixpack and the specialist. The authors do an excellent job of simplifying complex analyses and making the material both accessible and interesting. It is well researched and analytically rigorous.

Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh - book cover picture

Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH was a fun and exciting book! I think Robert C. O' Brien, the author, had a lot of imagination. When we read this book in our class I coudn't wait until we read the next chapter. I told my dad so much about the book that he went out and read it too! "It was a delightfully entertaining and thought-provoking story," he says. I think that if you haven't read this book yet you are missing out on a great story!
