Carpe Jugulum - book cover picture

I have had the enormous pleasure of reading every one of the Discworld novels (I even have a signed copy of 'The Last Continent') and I can honestly say that every one has improved when re-read. I have read them all at least twice, and most on three occasions.The first time around, Carpe Jugulum is reasonably amusing, not a patch on the earlier books, but on re-reading, many of the more subtle aspects of the story came to the fore. I tend to read fairly quickly, so I don't gleam the full myriad of wealth from the book after one reading. However, this allows for multiple re-reads as there is always something new to discover in the vast tapestry of the novel.I highly recommend this book, but don't settle for just reading it once.PS 'The Fifth Elephant', the new one, is even better.

Seeing Calvin Coolidge in a Dream : A Novel - book cover picture

Wonderful book about Chinese immigrant and how his study of and obsession with President Calvin Coolidge sets his life straight. Hopeful message about America and what makes the United States unique. Nice to see Coolidge--a much underrated president--come to life on these pages. Also, like a good teacher, this is one of those books that makes readers learn much and feel smart without ever having them work too hard.

Excellent Collection for Computer-Mediated Communications

Network and Netplay: Virtual Groups on the Internet - book cover picture

This is an excellent book collection of articles on CMC. It's especially a great resource for historical research into the early days of the Internet and the web. Although some topics may seem somewhat dated, nevertheless they are still applicable to the present date in terms of the nature of network mediated communications.The main focus of the book collection is on textual communications. It also expands on CMC's impacts on knowledge creation and sharing. The theoretical works in the last two chapters further expand the discussions on the nature of virtual world and virtual interaction. The book is an essential resource for people interested in surveying the research in CMC, computer-supported cooperative work, and net-based communications

Claudia's Friend (Baby-Sitters Club) - book cover picture

After reading this book, I found the meaning of life. Ann M. Martin's 'The Baby-Sitters Club' series is on my book shelf next to the works of William Shakespeare, Sophocles, Homer, etc...
This book teaches life lessons, but at the same time gives you hours of entertainment. I was laughing and crying at times throughout the book.
Please consider this book, it is some of the greatest literature written in the 20th Century.

Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right - book cover picture

Whether or not you are liberal or conservative, you will laugh until you cry reading this hysterically funny book. Franken's humor still zings, and it zings politicians and journalists of all political stripes. Buying this book for a friend who needs a lift or a political / news junkie is a must. Good satire is always a joy, but satire that elicits guffaws and side-hurting laughter is the result of incredible comic genius. Combining humor with fact while sending up some of our favorite (and least-favorite) public personalities, Franken wins the prize with this one.

The Happiest Baby on the Block : The New Way to Calm Crying and Help Your Newborn Baby Sleep Longer - book cover picture

I have a 6 week old baby girl who is right at the height of her colicky phase. Last night even the 5 S's (which normally work fabulously) were only working temporarily, so I decided to try something drastic. Since I really needed to vacuum, I decided to combine the two efforts and see what happened. Since Dr. Karp says that cultures who "wear" their babies rarely have problems with colic, I purchased one of those baby slings. I put her in it and got the vacuum out and proceeded to vacuum. Within about 15 seconds she was asleep and stayed asleep the entire hour it took to vacuum, complete with all the movement that comes with the task. The only precaution I had to take was to make sure I didn't hit something with her, since she was an extention of my body. If anyone needed more proof of the 4th Trimester theory, HERE IT IS!! Save yourself a lot of heartache, and buy and read this book before your baby is born!

Awesome Plot, Dripping with Suspense

The Negotiator - book cover picture

This was my personal "Best Fiction" book that I read in 2000. It is not only a fascinating look at hostage negotiation principles (that can be applied in all negotiations) but it is an amazingly creative plot that keeps you guessing and interesting to the end. If you are looking for a well-written, well-researched, multi-locale book that keeps you guessing and marveling at twists, read this book!

The Quest : One Man's Search for Peace, Insight, and Healing in an Endangered World - book cover picture

I first read this book about 5 years ago. I thought it was great but I couldn't grasp alot of it. Then I re- read it after taking Tom's first philosophy class and it really hit home. It is a guide book for walking a spiritual path in modern society-which is one of the most difficult things any of us could choose to do. I've found that I get more from it every time i read it. The lessons go far beyond the words. It is an insiring work that shows the human side of the spiritual path. Thanks Tom. Thanks Grandfather.

What's So Amazing About Grace? - book cover picture

This was the second Philip Yancey book that I read (after The Jesus I Never Knew), and it is, by far, his greatest work. I have read this book almost a dozen times. The book explores the subject of grace in an example-driven, practical way that only Philip Yancey could write sucessfully. In response to criticism because of its controversy, I only have to say that the Bible is a very controversial book as well.

This is truly one of the greatest books I have ever read. I highly recommend this book for everyone who wants to learn more about God's amazing grace.

Amplified Bible - book cover picture

Personally, I place the AB at #2 under my absolute favorite, the New King James Version (the KJV being 3, of course). When I look at my shelves of literally dozens of versions, I realize all I ever use or need are these three, with the AB being an indespensible secondary Bible and Bible reference tool. It truly does, "unlock hidden shades of meaning," as my copy says on its cover. Every Bible reader that desires to go deeper into understanding the Bible needs a copy in their arsenal, without question.
