Penetrating Insight into the Soul of the South

Confederates in the Attic - book cover picture

This book was nothing short of a klieg light, illuminating previously dark, for me at any rate, areas of the Southern mindscape. While the Civil War appears to be the thread, the real protagonists are the South's current inhabitants, and particularly their somewhat dysfunctional state of mind. It contextualizes the present-day South's, to outsiders, bizarre behavior, e.g. Jasper Texas' mayhem ; behavior which ,it is implied, results from the post-bellum South's intense loser-based neurosis. The book doesn't leave you an expert by any means, but it does leave a flavor in your mouth, likely a bitter one if you're a Southerner. Southerners do not understand how to really move on. It sounds as if the entire region needs a complete psychological workup.

Great Ideas!

For the Bride - book cover picture

I own so many wedding books that I often get overwhelmed when contemplating my wedding plans, but this book has such wonderful concrete ideas that I have used it from day one. It is very text rich, so you should give yourself at least one hour to sift through it, but it is well worth your time.
Colin Cowie is a wedding planning genius and his ideas have helped me compromise on a few things, especially since our wedding is not a big budget ball.

A spellbinding story of the profound desire for freedom.


Book title: Song of Solomon
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
Song of Solomon - book cover picture

Toni Morrison's great achievement with this novel reaches the very depth of the African-American soul. Using the Emmitt Luis Till lynching as an historical backdrop, Morrison describes the struggle between the trodden-upon black man who lives in a world of injustice. Even more revealing, though, is Milkman's struggle with himself. His is a struggle for freedom, and Morrison tells Milkman's story with the magic that can only be found in a deeply-embedded history of an entire race's search for absolute freedom. The "Song of Solomon" is full of energy and desire.

Flowers for Algernon: In this beloved novel-the basis for the - book cover picture

Flowers for Algernon initially attracts its readers with a tantalizing experiment. As experimental surgery converts sluggish mouse Algernon and retarded young man Charlie Gordon into geniuses, readers are swept helplessly into a turbulent emotional experience entirely contradictory of the scientific curiosity they were drawn in by. Your heart will ache while reliving Charlie's painful memories of an abusive mother and a ceaseless struggle for love and understanding in a world where humanity is measured by numerical IQ's and Rorschach tests . This novel offers a serious intellectual question to the mind as well as a new level of compassion and understanding for the spirit.

A Superb Collection of Short Stories


Book title: Miss Marple: the Complete Short Stories

Miss Marple: the Complete Short Stories - book cover picture

I love the character of Miss Marple. The way she is constantly underestimated never ceases to amuse. Agatha Christie was up to her best when she wrote these stories. Nothing's predictable except that Miss Marple will solve the crime. My favorites in this collection are from The Tuesday Club Murders. None of the stories in this book are very long but with each one I couldn't wait to get to the end and find out who the murderer was. I've read the book twice yet I still couldn't recall or predict who the murder would be in the majority of the stories. Great book!

A Book For All Who Share a Family Bed

Biggest Bed in the World - book cover picture

This is a "must have" for any family that shares afamily bed. When I read it to my children, 4 and 2, they laughed atthe pictures and I filled with tears at how wonderfully the author captures my feelings of frustration at times to share my bed but also knowing that like the dad, I would not be able to sleep without them in bed with me. The second time we read the book we talked about our own experiences with the family bed and how we had to add to our bedsize. My four year old thought until reading this book that we had the biggest bed in the world. He is now interested in tearing down a few walls so we can make our bed larger also. END

Essential reading for everyone

On Death and Dying - book cover picture

This classic should be read by everyone in order to be better prepared for that which we all will face. Death is a subject that for too long has been in the closet but it should not be. This is a topic that needs to be dealt with realistically and this book will help in that process. It should be a springboard for all families and friends to help one another in the final, most difficult journey.

Incredible Book!

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Jewish History and Culture - book cover picture

As a High School student, I mostly feel I get more then enough lessons of History a week, though it does give me a chance to catch up on sleep. I picked up this book in order to help me write a Paper, and didn't stop reading it till the end even though I didn't need all of it. Written with humor and wit, this book conveys the essence of the Jewish People and enables you to look at it both objectivly and subjectively. The book gives you the reasons for every historical event and not just the sequence of events. For me, it gave history and new light, and I noticed that the reasons cited for many of the historical events actually apply today as well, though with different actions as the result. As they say, History does indeed repeat itself! Great job, Rabbi! I wish this author would share his wit and knowlage in many other subjects as he is the easiest way to learn!

Dragonsinger (Harper Hall Trilogy) - book cover picture

I discovered this book in elementary school. Since then I have read it more times than any two other books combined. The Harper Hall trilogy is incredible and this book is the best of the three. It still amazes me how I lose myself in reading this book. The characters and situations are so real that re-reading it is like reading it again for the first time. I would and have recommended this book to anyone interested in reading.

Sunrise to Paradise: The Story of Mount Rainier National Park - book cover picture

This book shows the history of Mount Rainier National Park, from Sunset to Paradise. The photos are great and the paragraphs are informative and don't run on. The book also goes into the history of the 14,411 foot Stratovolcano, and how 5,600 years ago, the peak was at 16,500 feet, but a major eruption caused a massive collapse and created the peak we know, love and cherish today.
