Apocalypse Pretty Soon : Travels In End-Time America - book cover picture

Heard's career has reached a new zenith with this outstanding tome. His lacerating wit and devastating satire destroys the "school board member mentality" of various big city washouts and others unable to cut it in the real world. From Heard's college days at Vanderbilt, he has shown the wry wit that makes this a great read from start to finish. His ability to make us take notice of the everyday bufoons should delight readers everywhere.

Peace Is Every Step : The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life - book cover picture

This book will show you the way to accept others and yourself in the best ways of compassion. I especially like the parts about how flowers grow in garbage. Yeah, that sounds funny but when you look deeply at what it means it basically says that even though people have their bad points they all have something in common: a wanting to end suffering....and if they are suffering (the garbage) try to find the flower amongst it.Very insightful and a must read for beginners and advanced practitioners alike.

No wonder it is a Classic!

I Am a Bunny (Golden Sturdy Book) - book cover picture

My little boy is 16 months and I bought this book more or less for myself as the bunny looks so cute and I am a Richard Scarry fan. Now I understand why all the online reviews named it as a classic, the illustrations are simply superb and the storyline is simple yet meaningful covering the 4 seasons and nature. It's just a lovely book. The size is different (long shape) but it's very unique and I'm a big fan of board books so there's also a plus there. I would definitely recommend this book to any toddler. My little boy was captivated immediately which is pretty unusual as there was no flap, no pop-up and no tiger.

Haunting tale of love and mystery--with a surprise twist

Book title: Rebecca
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Audio Cassette
Rebecca - book cover picture

I picked this book up when I was in high school on a visit to my uncle's...and I couldn't put it down. I was captivated as I followed the uncertain steps of a young girl swept off her feet by a rich older man, then thrust into the overwhelming position of lady of the manor, a position previously held by a beautiful, confident woman that everyone seemed to adore. Everything was not as it first appeared, however, and the new bride had many shocking and horrifying surprises in store for her. "Rebecca" was a gripping tale that fascinated Alfred Hitchcock, and he chose this story to bring to the big screen. But even the Master of Suspense, in my opinion, could not do justice to this epic romance/mystery/thriller as written by Du Maurier. One of the most memorable books I have ever read.

Wild Magic

Binding: School & Library Binding
Wild Magic: The Immortals (Immortals (Paperback)) - book cover picture

I read Wild Magic and loved it. It has more depth than Harry Potter, but it is an easier read than Lord of the Rings. It has the cultural diversity of Redwall, but it includes humans. Daine, is the main character, who can talk to animals including the fantastically fictional animals that inhabit her world. It gets interesting when she must use these powers to win a war against an army of dark wizards. I thought I had read all the good fiction/fantasy books, but this surpassed all expectations. I highly recommend this book.

Running an Effective Help Desk, 2nd Edition - book cover picture

This is the best how-to book on this subject. The author has real-world experience and it shows in the organization of the book. It contains practical insight on managing the outsourcing of help desk services. It seeems to be generic by design. If you have industry-, company- or culture-specific issues, you may have to do some more research. Great starting point for new help desk managers.

Flash! Give me shock

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

Palahniuk recovered from his rather slow second novel, Survivor, to create a work that surpasses his first one, Fight Club. Invisible Monsters, as with the other novels, is first and foremost NOT about shock. It is only shocking to those who read Palahniuk's novels without an open mind. If a person is looking for shock than they should look eslewhere because the material in Invisible Monsters is only shocking in some parts. What is in this novel is a graphic depiction of trying to break free of society's grasp. Unlike the previous novels, Invisible Monsters brings all three of the main characters to life with very vivid visuals and dialogue. This book is a strong critique of pop culture and achieves the subtlety of Fight Club. A must read after the other two novels have been digested.

A Wedding to Die For : A Yellow Rose Mystery (Yellow Rose Mystery) - book cover picture

This second in the Yellow Rose mystery series was just as pleasurable as the first. Once again, Abby Rose, now a private adoption PI is involved with murder and mayhem. The characters were fun to get to know, although the craziness of two sisters - Courtney and Roxanne - was a bit over the top at times. The mystery is involving, and just long enough to hold your attention. I particularly enjoyed the trip Abby took to Jamaica to further research the case - getting Abby to another location with locals really added to the story. If you haven't read the first in the series, I would recommend that; although the author goes over the highlights from her first book the characters are drawn from the first book mainly, and just expanded upon here. I look forward to the next book.. fun and light series.
