D Is for Deadbeat (Kinsey Millhone Mysteries (Paperback)) - book cover picture

Private Investigator Kinsey Millhone is back again in this fourth installment of Sue Grafton's alphabet series. This time she is offered a fee to give a $25,000 cashier's check to a young man named Tony Gahan. The check for the fee bounces and Kinsey is now looking for the man who gave it to her, plus the young man she is to give the cashier's check to. Everything she finds out about her client is bad. He is a drunk, who has killed several people in a car wreck, and appears to be a bigamist. When he is found dead, Kinsey has plenty of suspects including survivors of the dead motorists and two angry wives. This book is written in Grafton's usual breezy style, and Kinsey becomes more independent and more likeable with each book. I would recommend the whole series to mystery-lovers.

Katy and her younger, Clover go to New England boarding school by "What Katy Did at School." They get many great friends. I become the feeling from which I became Katy's classmate.
In "What Katy Did Next", Katy's European tour is written interestingly. However, I do not so like the parent and child who are the companion of Katy. Moreover, the classmate of nostalgic Katy also appears. And we are excited by the whereabouts of the romance of Katy.

An Excellent, Accessible Book

Almayer's Folly (Penguin Great Books of the 20th Century) - book cover picture

I was surprised to find out this was Conrad's first book. I expected an awkwardness of a writer refining his skill, but what I found was a captivating, accessible and satisfying story. It has suspense and romance as well as the tragedy that Conrad is known for. I think the young characters and themes make this book far more accessible to a young person than the standard required Conrad novel--Heart of Darkness. Almayer's Folly is an excellent introduction to Conrad's work.

The Blind Generation

The Greatest Generation (Tom Brokaw) - book cover picture

"I am the Greatest!"

Brilliantly, the book was written showing extreme sacrifices and valor of one of the greatest generations to live. The book showed how they survived economic and military attack. The book showed they built the world into what it is. Is that a blind construction? What about the world the way it is?

The question, then, is about The Blind Generation. Were the trials of the 1930s and 1940s a time of blindness? Were people's eyes shut to destruction? Was the bomb the symbol of the generation? One could wonder if that is the way to live or were the protests against war of the 1960s the right way to live? It could be that neither or both generations were blind. Which shall it be? Perhaps the 1960s generation is blind and war is the right way to live, then perhaps not.

Anger Is a Choice - book cover picture

I am surprised that no one has reviewed this book. It is actually very good and I only wish that more people would read it. Especially in a day and age where we read in the media of school shootings and spousal abuse and other anger related issues.Anger can be controlled, like any negative behavior. Our elders knew that teaching self discipline is what kept a child from becoming and adult with self destructive behavior. This is what Dr Lahaye tries to get across to the reader.It is also a Biblically sound book in my opinion. I would only add that media and how we allow it into our lives also plays a big role in teaching our children and we as adults, what is acceptable, but not always wise or G~odly. It is a good read. And it is a book that non-christians might find some value in. I did.

It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life - book cover picture

I bought the book before reading a review and decided to stop by and check out what people were saying after I read it. I LOVED the book! I've always known who Lance was, but I was interested to read his story, mostly for the story of his move into fatherhood. Well, I became engrossed in every word even though I've never been a cycling fan. I had tears in my eyes several times while reading about the Tour de France. I couldn't put it down, and recommend it for everyone! This is a book about an extraordinary human being, who beat the odds, and came out fighting! You don't even have to like cycling to be able to feel the emotions shared in this book, and if you're like me, you'll form a new view of bike racing and become a fan! I look forward to his future races and can honestly say I'll always be a fan of Lance Armstrong!

Ender's Game (Ender Quartet) - book cover picture

The book, Ender's Game, gave me confidence in things that I didn't think that I could do. It encouraged me and it told me never to give up no matter what, to always try my hardest.Ender's Game is a terrific book written by Orson Scott Card. It is about a boy, Ender Wiggin, who goes to Battle School (located in space). The purpose of Battle School was to separate and train military geniuses to fight the Buggers (an alien race) but the battles at Battle School, aren't really battles but games.Ender Wiggin is the greatest soldier in Battle School history. He has great leadership and respect. Ender Wiggin is the best of the best. Time is running out. Will the human race continue?

Roark vs. Toohey

The Fountainhead - book cover picture

"~I enjoyed this book immensely. However, most of the reviews for this book focus on Roark. I think Ellsworth M. Toohey was a more incredible character. Roark and Toohey were both two independent people, but I envy the way Toohey used people to give himself more power. Just knowing the fact that he is "smaller" than them is just what they need to survive. They all used him. They could care less about him. I'm sure they all could've easily lived without Keating. They took advantage of Keating's weakness...but hey, who wouldn't?

Don't Make Me Think : A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability (2nd Edition) - book cover picture

Krug has done what so many others have tried: written a short, concise book with examples that actually offers both food for thought and answers to practical questions. If you're looking to revamp an existing site and you are wondering if this or that idea will work, Krug will most likely be able to offer a hint or two. The exquisite design of the book itself and Krug's style of writing makes it a pleasure to sit down and read, and since he does not get bogged down with long-winded discussions about browser-compatibility and other tech details, he can focus on the topic at hand: usability. For anyone who enjoys Jacob Nielsen's alert newsletters, this is the perfect bookshelf companion.
