Yes, it was a beautiful and moving book.
Coincidentally, I am now reading The Good Thief.
i'm reading flashforward right now, started watching the tv series but kinda lost interest after the fourth episode, but so far i'm still intrigued with the book
How to Cook Everything
This one often comes in handy: Mark Bittman's classic How to Cook Everything:
I have that but I like cook books with pictures
Yeah, the "See Food Diet".
Love & Bullets by Mary Kate Kopec
This is a plug for my cousin who had her first book published in January. If you are in to romantic novels Rita highly recommends the book. It can be found on Amazon.
We will make our annual trip to Siesta Key next month and I plan on reading it while at the beach.
Lioness and New in NY, thanks for the recommendation!
just finished reading flash forward, i liked the beginning of the novel but not quite impressed with the end, maybe because i had a hard time understanding about the complex physics stuff, but i would be open in reading some other science fiction works of the author
Reading The Magic of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz, Ph.D. -- enjoying it.
In the background, I've browsed a provocative book called War Is a Force that Gives Us Meaning, by Chris Hedges. It centers on the psychology that make humans keep going to war. It has a very strong, unsettling message...
I am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced by Nujood Ali with Delphine Minoui -- I recommend it, most definitely. Inspiring and a good reminder/eye-opener of the unbelievable hardships (although that word doesn't even do it justice) in the world.
Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain by John D. Ratey, MD with Eric Hagerman
At the college bookstore yesterday, I found a beautiful just-published hardcover book called Clint: A Retrospective, "a lavish tribute to [Clint] Eastwood’s singular career", as Amazon puts it.
It has lots of great pictures, and covers Clint's entire career as both actor and director all the way to last year's nicely done Invictus...
The Shadow Effect: Illuminating the Hidden Power of Your True Self by Deepak Chopra, Debbie Ford and Marianne Williamson
The Hidden Messages in Water by Masaru Emoto
Reading The Power of Now. Obviously not feeling it lately. lol
Just ordered Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief from the library, I actually liked the movie
Committed: A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage by Elizabeth Gilbert. Loved it.
One Small Step Can Change Your Life: The Kaizen Way by Robert Maurer, Ph.D.
Talent Is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else by Geoff Colvin
reading Omnivore's Dilemma ...just now dipping into it but it is fascinating
Still trying to break my legs with 'Classical Ballet Technique'.
It even teaches you how to smile but I look like I'm going mad! No, no pictures
Hmm maybe I need to put some flag stones on either leg to make them go flat!!
Don't hurt yourself!
I read The Help, and I really liked it. I remember those days, Kennedy's election and all. We had maids until I was 12. It was just a fact of life. Billie didn't raise us, but she was there full time. (My Mom was a teacher.) My brother remembers that she told him as a white boy, he could grow up to be whatever he wanted.
