The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America - book cover picture

Larson's book is a pure enjoyment--a historical journey into the history of Chicago, warts and all. The reader not only learns about Daniel Burnham's amazing feat pulling together the Columbia Exposition of 1893 and the ways it changed the nation, but he contrasts this event with America's first serial killer, ironically steps away from the fair. The reader is tugged from good to evil, from risk to murder, from heaven to hell. Enjoy the ride and thanks Mr. Larson for allowing us to take that ride!

Ballard is a genius


Book title: Concrete Island
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Concrete Island - book cover picture

My first Ballard novel. I'm hooked. Brilliant reading. For young and old alike. "Ballard's novels are complex, obsessive, frequently poetic, and always disquieting chronicles of nature rebelling against humans, of the survival of barbarism in a world of mechanical efficiency, of ethropy, anomie, breakdown, ruin . . . The blasted landscapes that his characters inhabit are both external settings and states of mind."-Luc Sante -Fantastic!
I could not have said it better myself.

The Tab Electronics Guide to Understanding Electricity and Electronics - book cover picture

My library of electronics books is huge, I have found myself having to buy many to get the information I need. I can only kick myself for not having bought Randy's book the minute it hit the shelves, as it would have saved me a lot of money and aggravation. Anyhoo, I have it now, and it is the book I use above all others. It is parked right next to my work bench. The topics struck me right away as the best mix that I have seen in any book. Randy actually writes in a way that you can sense he is trying to help you succeed in a career as well as teach you theory. He offers practical information about every aspect of electronics. Randy, I can't thank you enough for writing a book that allows any skill level reader to actual learn what they need.

Digestible philosophy


Book title: Before and after Socrates
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Before and after Socrates - book cover picture

When I received this book, I was expecting a more comprehensive survey of Greek thought, but I was nonetheless pleasantly surprised. This very slim book (109 pp) is actually a series of lectures delivered by Cornford on the development of Greek philosophy from Ionian science to Socrates, his pupil Plato, and his pupil Aristotle (with nods to others such as Pythagoras and Democritus along the way). Cornford delivers in very plain language what he considers to be the essential differences between these thinkers. I found this to be a very enjoyable introduction to Greek (and Western) philosophy that can be read within an hour or two. If only more philosophers would deign to present their theories to the laity as clearly as Professor Cornford!

Western romance meets Pygmalion meets Jane Eyre. Brilliant!


Book title: A Stranger's Wife
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
A Stranger's Wife - book cover picture

Maggie Osborne kept this reader guessing until the very end in this tense, page-turning historical romance. A Stranger's Wife hooked me from the first moment, made me care - even made me cry. A deeply satisying romance in the best tradition of Maggie Osborne herself, even the minor characters are well-defined. And the conflicted Quinn, kingmaker Paul, and heroine Lily/Miriam, with her steel-strong determination and soft heart, are three of the most memorable people I have ever met in historical fiction. A Stranger's Wife also reminds this reader of Pygmalion - and even of Jane Eyre. A definite must read - and a keeper! Does Paul get his own book? I think he needs one!

Leap Over a Wall : Earthy Spirituality for Everyday Christians - book cover picture

In this book, Peterson has freed me to find God in an "earthy" way. Like many in my generation, inside the four walls of the sanctuary is not always the place where I most deeply experience God. Peterson's retelling of the David stories, with a beautiful edge that is vintage Peterson, has given us all permission to be like David - profoundly human and earthy, yet "after God's own heart."

This book is where I found "it", the key to spiritual bliss


Book title: The Book of Secrets
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Hardcover
The Book of Secrets - book cover picture

I didn't need to adopt a new religion, nor even have a religion, nor take up strange practices. (Depsite the dramatic title.) The approach here is a method; Tantra is a method, not a belief. All that was needed was an open mind and the will to try something simple. Osho expresses himself in English very clearly and vigorously, there is no mystical-technical jargon/tedium! If it works for you, there's no strenuous effort! But you may feel like you've lost a backpack of rocks you never knew you carried. It worked for me before I got past 1/4 of the techniques (I read an earlier, partial edition.) It's been 6 years since then, and the benefit has endured and grown - not a flash in the pan. Yhere just aren't words to describe "it," you have to experience it.

This book is the third in the series of "Voyage of the Basset"-and possibly the best! It's about a boy named Brad who believes in Progress. He also believes in helping others: except somehow his experiments always seem to go wrong. One day he meets Lucy, a poor girl who works as a servant at the boarding school he goes to.

However, he goes on with his plan, and when he decides to take Lucy on a tour of a the Basset, something happens that neither of them counted on. They are whisked off on the Basset to the Lands of Legend. There they see many wonderful and interesting creatures. They visit the College of Magical Knowledge, meet the Chimera and do much, much more. Brad can't believe his eyes! And neither can Lucy. They both learn new things about magic: and each other. Join Lucy, Brad, and the crew of the Bassett for a voyage you'll never forget!

The Magic Of You (Malory Novels) - book cover picture

I loved Warren and Amy's story, she's the sauciest heroine JL has ever written. The fact that Amy's the one who sets her sites on Warren was original and a lot of fun. This one is not only a sweet romance,it is also an incredibly sexy one! The scene on the dark country road is one of my all time favorites. Ms. Lindsey is at her best in this series of books, and I can't wait to read Jeremy's story, Now there is one sexy hero!

More Spaghetti, I Say! (level 2) (Hello Reader) - book cover picture

This is the cutest book I have come across in a long time. I checked this book out at our local library to read to my three-year-old son, and we liked it so much that I bought a copy. Minnie the monkey is bananas over spaghetti! The storyline is simple and interesting---and funny. My son wants me to read this to him every day, sometimes several times a day. I still find the thing amusing, even after having read it more times than I can count. There are a few additional benefits to owning this book. It opens up wonderful opportunities for discussion with your children on such topics as understanding the likes and dislikes of others, being a good playmate, the perils of overindulgience, and being considerate of other people's feelings. Not only that, but a little boy who wouldn't touch spaghetti before, now gladly eats a double portion! :)
