Little time, still in need of spiritual nourishment?

Simple Abundance:  A Daybook of Comfort and Joy - book cover picture

I am a working Mom. I rise at 5a.m. Yet I do need some kind of thought at the end of the day to put me on track. Especially when I do not have time to consecrate to long spiritual/ self help books. This book, does rapidly call back to mind essentials which may have been read before or interesting new thoughts. I felt, with this book, as though I had a close friend who accompanied me during the year. Someone who I could 'chat' with for even 5 minutes a day. Sarah, thank you!

Beginner's paradise

3D Studio Max R3 Visual Quickstart Guide - book cover picture

If you want to begin learning 3d Studio Max, this is THE book. I still reference it now. The examples are short and easy. No long explanations. By the end of the book, you will be able to make terrains, render fog, etc. This will not get you into Character Studio, or advanced topics which you will have to find in another book, but this book will get you more than started. I bought 3d Studio Max r3 Bible and it left me confused. This book started me on my way. There were a few minor mistakes in the book, but not enough to depreciate the quality.

Though Criticized, Diamond Age is still a gem

Rating: 5/5

DIAMOND AGE, THE (Bantam Spectra Book) - book cover picture

Crtics of this book, most notably Kirkus Reviews, have cited the "vainglorius" style and labyrnithine plot as negative aspects of an otherwise compelling book. I would describe them rather as assets; I found the style flexible and usually appropriate, both reflecting the sensibilities of the Neo-Victorian protagonists of the novel and providing the reader with gorgeous imagery and metaphor. The plot, though complex and ambigous, is compelling; as Constable Moore says to Nell towards the end of the tale, the ability to deal with this ambivalence is a mark of intelligence. Must the author do everything for us? I think that the open ended, freely interpretable nature of this book is one of its greatest strengths.

The best of Feist


Book title: Magician: Apprentice (Riftwar Saga)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Mass Market Paperback
Magician: Apprentice (Riftwar Saga) - book cover picture

The first two books of the "Riftwar Saga", Magician: Apprentice and Master are great fast-paced adventure, and the best of Feist's work. While many of the adventures of both Tomas and Pug are fairy typical fastasy plots, the characters are good enough that you will love them anyway. While definitely a stereotypical "unlikely hero" story, it is one of my favorite hero tales. Typical criticism of Feist is for the quality of his prose, which in later books is admitedly not top quality, while the substance of his stories are, on the other hand, praised. Newer editions of the Magician books give you the best of both. Through several re-edits and new editions the magician books have become very polished and are of high quality all around.While I would not recommend sticking with the series after these first two, you will love the Magician books.

An Extrodinary Book, Worth Your Time!


Book title: Walk Two Moons (Newbery Medal Book)
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Walk Two Moons (Newbery Medal Book) - book cover picture

Walk Two Moons, is a book which you'll will absolutely love! It is about a girl who is on a car trip with her grandparents, to see her dead mother. Along the way, she tells the tells of a great friend, Pheobe, and the potential "Lunatic." It may be a little bit long, but even from reading a tiny bit, I knew it was great. I have read it two times, and I still haven't gotten everything there is to get out of it. There are some tragic events, but the main story keeps you on the edge of your seat. The settings are easy to visulize, and they are beautiful, from her old house in Bybanks, Kentucky, to Yellowstone National Park! I recomend this book to all readers, because I LOVED it!

Best one volume history of Revolutionary War

Rebels and Redcoats: The American Revolution Through the Eyes of Those Who Fought and Lived It (Da Capo Paperback) - book cover picture

Reads like a good novel. The first hand accounts woven into the narrative are well selected and perfectly integrated. A variety of perspectives was chosen and this is quite even-handed. There is enough detail to make it lively and interesting but not so much that it overpowers. Anyone wishing to pursue further personal study has broad cross section of topics, biographies and events to choose from. This is an excellent book and should be required reading for all high school and college students instead of the the race-gender-class dribble that is probably used today. 1000% better than Langguth's "Patriots".

Song of the Wanderer (The Unicorn Chronicles, Book 2) - book cover picture

I read the first book a few years ago, and I loved it. I've been looking since then for the second, and am very pleased it is finally coming out. I'm fifteen now and I am looking forward to it just as eagerly as I was when I was younger. I hope there will be many more after it, and if you haven't read the first yet, please do, because it's worth it. I love fantasy books, and this is a great one.

Initially Puzzled But Ultimately Pleased

The Law of Torts: Examples and Explanations (Little, Brown Examples and Explanations Series) - book cover picture

I was expecting a book about small pastries (I LOVE pastries!), with perhaps lots of lush, full-color photos of tasty raspberry-jam-filled confections (I LOVE raspberry jam!). But, to my initial disappointment, I instead found a book explaining some kind of legal rigmarole about suing people for damaging persons or property. Despite its dry, abstract subject matter, this book actually turned out to be an extremely gripping read. (I devoured it all in one sitting, staying up all night because I just had to know how it ended.) Even if you're only interested in opening your own little patisserie and spreading joy to people through your talent with filo dough, I highly recommend this book anyway: After all, you never know when a customer might slip and fall in your shop.

Memoirs of Hadrian, and Reflections on the Composition of Memoirs of Hadrian - book cover picture

"My dear Mark," the author begins, immediately establishing her fictional structure: Hadrian, approaching death, is recollecting his life expressly for the tutelary benefit of his "heir," the subsequent Emperor of Rome, the young Marcus Aurelius. There follow 295 polished and deeply imagined pages that weave across continents and plunge in and out of the most intimate recesses of his being to reveal the French Academician's artful conception of Hadrian: the boy, the athlete, the hunter, the lover, the Emperor, the near-suicide, a man. I immediately went out and looked for another book by this engaging and masterful author.

How to Sell Anything on eBay . . . and Make a Fortune! - book cover picture

This book is great if you've never used ebay before and want to get started making money and buying things. While it may not get you to make a fortune, it does help you sell.

I highly recommend this book if you are new to ebay. In addition to helping you sell, it also helps you buy.

I also recommend eBay Secrets : How to create Internet auction listings that make 30% more money while selling every item you list if you want to make MORE money while selling!
