What Smart Students Know : Maximum Grades. Optimum Learning. Minimum Time. - book cover picture

I received this book when I left for college. Even though I was already successful in high school, I found that this book provided me with new options for streamlining my study habits. It gave straight-forward advice in a very witty format. The book was easy to read and to use as a quick reference. Robinson also includes very helpful visual examples for the struggling student.While this book was useful to me, Robinson's suggestions may not work for everyone. But it is well worth a try.

If You Take a Mouse to the Movies - book cover picture

The mouse is back! Once again, a sweet little boy becomes exhausted meeting the constant demands of a tiny tyrannical rodent in this, the fourth of the Numeroff-Bond books.Written for the Christmas season, the action begins with our protagonists preparing for an outing to see a Christmas film -- but it doesn't stop there! Not by a long shot. One thing leads to another -- somehow logical, somehow outrageous -- until the circle is complete, and our duo are again wandering off to the movies.The illustrations are absolutely priceless, filled with humorous details that will keep the book fresh even after the hundredth reading. And, if your child is like mine, there will be hundreds of readings. You will never forget the image of a mouse singing karaoke in candy cane-decorated boxer shorts, and do not neglect the sweet pictures on the credit pages.

Rub your head and give three winks....I loved this book and have abstained from seeing the film out of my own witchy sense that it couldn't stack up. "But love was not about practice and preparation, it was pure chance; if you took your time with it you ran the risk of having it evaporate before it had even begun." To Ms. Hoffman's credit I've carried that quote around since my first read in 1995.--Laurel825

Circle Of Magic #01 : Sandry's Book - Reissue (Circle Of Magic) - book cover picture

When I started reading Tamora Pierce's "Sandry's Book", I had a bit of a hard time. I have never read other books by Tamora Pierce before, but from what I have heard the rest of her books are fantastic, too. A royal girl, a thief, a Trader castout and a merchant's daughter, joined together by a mage in a special "school", form a friendship, which they disguise by jokingly teasing each other. After finding out that they have powerful magics, they must join together to save their lives and the lives of most of the people in their "school". A gripping must-read, though parts of it are a bit frustrating at first.

The Duke And I (Avon Romantic Treasure) - book cover picture

I have read all of Julia Quinn's books and this is my favorite. This is mostly because Simon Bassett, the Duke of Hastings, is a very sympathetic hero. He rises above his sad beginnings, but not completely until he meets Daphne Bridgerton. Daphne has a lot of spirit but the author keeps it in check so Daphne is a believable character. You really want these two to be together. This couple stayed with me long after I had finished the book.

Finders Keepers - book cover picture

This book proves that Sci-Fi can indeed exist in union with Futuristic Romance. And that-gasp!-a good space adventure can document two people falling in love. It even has room for well-done sexual tension. In addition to the romantic plot, FINDERS KEEPERS has: disreputable freighter pilots, `droids with attitudes, Heroes that are beyond human but are also endearingly human, space battles, asteroid fields, battleships and space stations, trans-galactic jump gates, arrogant corporate scum, and inter-galactic politics. You want it? It's there.

Ride with Trilby and Rhis on a roller-coaster of political and financial machinations and against an amazing backdrop of life in deep space. Author Sinclair's prose is tight and intense. You'll feel as though you are in the cockpit, the ship's controls in your hands, speeding through space with your hair on fire. It's firmly placed on the shelf marked, "Touch this and Die."

The Known World - book cover picture

I think this book is excellent. But you definitely have to take your time while reading it. I read other reviews and one in particular criticized the book for not being "factual"...But the book is "a novel" in essence it is "fiction" so while the characters may not have really existed or even the historians, he cited...the story is based on a true piece of American History. It is no different than any other fiction novel based on American history. So I don't see the point in that arguement. Anyway, I say "Good job, Mr. Jones!"

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1) - book cover picture

I purchased this audio edition to listen to while knitting, after seeing interviews with J.K. Rowling on TV. I have not been disappointed - the story is fun, interesting, and imaginitive... not to mention very entertaining, even for adults! In the tradition of C.S. Lewis or Madeleine L'Engle's imaginary realms... although this Harry Potter book (and, I assume, the others) don't have a religious message, ethics such as sticking up for your friends in need, trying things even when you're afraid, dealing with loneliness, and other universal issues are covered. Wonderful fun!

One of the finest horror novels of all time.

Book title: I Am Legend
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
I Am Legend - book cover picture

Robert Neville is Legend. And what a ride Richard Matheson gives in what is perhaps the finest vampire novel ever written. From the first page the reader is sucked into the nightmare that the protagonist lives through night after terrifying night. Richard Matheson's deft prose keeps the readers eyes glued to the pages, often way into the morning hours in a desperate attempt to find out what happens. And boy can he write. You will not find better storytelling anywhere. With the added short stories, especially Dress of White Silk, From Shadowed Places, and the sublime Person to Person, this is a justified purchase for fans of horror fiction. Highly recommended.

I have long been a skeptic about the whole Harry Potter craze and I have never been a big fan of fantasy fiction before, but after having everyone I know tell me it is a wonderful series and realizing it would only take a few hours to read a book to make up my own mind, I picked up The Sorcerer's Stone and realized what I had been missing. It is a wonderful fairy tale with great characters and a very well crafted plot, but what I enjoyed most was that it was so accessible. It is written for younger children, so it is very easy to sit down for a few hours and just enjoy what you are reading without having to think too deeply or strain your brain while trying to follow the story. I will certainly join the crowd in recommending this book to everyone I know.
