The Catcher in the Rye - book cover picture

I have read this book twice and it is the number 1 reason I read today. This is a classic tale of an adolescent teen living in his own skin and not liking the feeling; isn't that the model all teens live under? Probably more today then when I was growing up and had all those unchannelled emotions and misgivings (early 80's) I think we all need to reread this book every 10 years or so to reconnect to our youth and help us to understand what the younger generations are up against. It aint all cake and ice cream from what I remember. A true classic you will love!

I had heard about this book from my english teacher recently. She read us a few pages out of the book and she recommend us to it. After she finished reading, I already had an urge to read it. Therefore, I went to the library as soon as possible to find it. As I went through it, I had realised that I couldn't put it down again!

She doesn't talk at all ever since her face was deformed, and that was also the reason that she was sent to a boarding school. In this diary, she wrote about the things she had observed, and gradually, revealing more and more of herself. To find out more, read the book.

Docter Who: Legacy of the Daleks

Legacy of the Daleks (Doctor Who Series) - book cover picture

This is the best of all the Doctor Who novels that John Peel has written. It has the feel of the tv series. Something that many novelists of the Docter can't create. Peel explores what happened to Earth in the aftermath of the Dalek Invasion of Earth, and shows that humanity can act pretty stupidly at times. He also lets us see what became of the Doctor's granddaughter Susan after thirty years living on Earth. As someone who interviewed Terry Nation, the creator of Daleks, I think he would have approved of this story.

Cooking with the Two Fat Ladies - book cover picture

After watching Two Fat Ladies on PBS here in San Francisco, CA I was eager to try the recipes that were featured. I was amazed how the women's personalities translated over to the book (which isn't easy to do). I am now familiar with English food that when I take my second trip to the UK I will be able explain what "yorkshire pudding", "shepherd's pie" and "haggis" to my fellow American travelers.

3rd grade class was heart broken that we had reached the end

Wayside School Boxed Set: Wayside School Gets a Little Stranger, Wayside School is Falling Down, Sideway Stories from Wayside School - book cover picture

The Wayside series is one of funniest, engaging, talented, mathematically rich and language rich books our class has enjoyed. We would stop and work out math problems resented all along the way. The best was the Pet Day in the third book. We did a fairly good job of figuring out the animals, their owners, and the pet's names from the clues provided. We would try to predict what could possible happen from the chapter titles, and who would be involved. Usually, we were left laughing too hard to check our predictions. The stories could be share experienced by the whole class because of the use of standard events, i.e. "Mrs. Jewls had Todd write his name on the board under the word DISCIPLINE." When it was an event that required cheering, the situation was written so well, that the class could cheer without being prompted. This series kept their attention and imaginations soaring. They were heart broken when it ended.

The Third Thursday next adventure

The Well of Lost Plots (Thursday Next Series) - book cover picture

This series of books just seems to get better with every new one published. It just amazes me that the author can come up with the outlandish plots that he has, not to mention the many side characters who come and go at will. It certainly helps to have a good grounding in Literature to get some of the more obscure references (such as a land with many rabbits, where one character says Lennie likes to come on his day off). One of my favorite fictional characters makes a brief appearance in this book: J. Thaddeus Toad of Toad Hall, and that alone was worth the price of the book! I look forward to many more of the adventures of Thursday Next, and may they all be as funny as the ones before!

if you're serious about learning to play guitar, this is the book

Modern Method for Guitar: Volumes 1, 2, 3 Complete - book cover picture

this series covers it all - basic theory, technique, reading, chord studies, duets. if you're serious about learning to play, this is the series for you. that said, this large book has a stiff binding. As the book is used the pages come loose from the binding. this is a real drag. it might be cheaper to buy all three volumes in this book, however, you'll have to deal w/ an ever increasing number of loose pages. this criticism does not change the fact that this is a monster book.

Monster (Coretta Scott King Author Honor Books) - book cover picture

'Monster' by Walter Dean Myers is a story about a young boy named Steve Harmon who is thought to have commited the murder of the clerk at a local drugstore. Set in a detenion center in Manhattan, 'Monster' tells the story of survival in prison and in the courtroom. It is set up like a movie script, which allows the reader to guess if Steve is innconet or guilty. I personally loved the fast paced novel which almost trasported me inside of the story. It will keep readers geussing until the last virdict. This story making you think, and you will keep thinking about it even after you close the last page. Walter Dean Myers is a grest writer and he does wonderful work. This book really does deserve 5 stars!

Invisible Life - book cover picture

I read Invisible Life about two months ago and since then I have been on a mission to read the others as soon as I could. I loved all four. Although the first two were the only sequels I enjoyed the way favorite (and not so favorite) characters were in all four novels. Although I don't normally purchase hard back books I will be waiting in line for the next book. Keep up the good work and thank you. I'd love to hear from other people who enjoy reading works by African American authors.
