reviewed Kindle Wireless Reading Device, Wi-Fi.... August 26, 2010
In my previous Kindle (2nd generation) review, I called it the cheddar cheese on my omelet and the whipped cream on top of my frappuccino. Can't beat that - or can you? Hmmm... my favorite cold frappe …
reviewed The Handmaid's Tale. August 22, 2010
The Handmaid's Tale
This is another of those books that I read because a friend told me to. I didn't really look at the description, just opened it and started reading. Needless to say, I spent the first quarter of it a …
Quacking the Surface, Managing Customer
I judge books by their cover, at least initially, and this one made me giggle a little. There's the bottom half of a duck and by the bubbles, you can tell that little guy is paddling like crazy. Having …
Bloody Mary (Jack Daniels Mysteries)
I had high hopes for Bloody Mary but I fear it has the "curse of book two" (see my previous post). I loved the first book and was amazed at such a great job the author did. Let me say that I didn't hate …

EQUILIBRIUM (Portal Chronicles)
A sequel. Part two. Book two. Two little words that make me cringe. As a rule, I try to avoid series (although it seems that is all I'm reading these days, go figure). It's not that I have anything against …
reviewed The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. August 15, 2010
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millenium
I've heard a lot about this series and always meant to read them, but only got around to it when someone at my book club chose this one. The storyline is really good, the mystery of the unsolved murder, …

It's Raining Cupcakes
Isabel has a problem. Actually, she has a lot of problems. But this book isn't really about the problems so much as the solutions.     Like many kids, Isabel dreams of leaving the …

Zebrafish
Vita lives with her older brother who is a doctor researching cancer. She starts the year at a new school, not knowing anyone. She buys a second-hand guitar and decides she wants to start a band. She …
Behind the Wheel Express - Spanish 1
Living in Texas it has always been my dream to learn to speak Spanish. I've looked at several programs and even tried a couple of "learn while you drive" CD's. While I picked up a few phrases, I never …
reviewed The Passage. July 28, 2010
The Passage
I really enjoy end of the world novels and movies. It's the fight to survive, the burned out cities, the ruin. Death, destruction and devastation. Perhaps that makes me a little macabre, but whatever.   &n …

Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty
I've been waiting a long time for the sequel to Starcraft. I wasn't exactly sure if Blizzard could update the game and still keep the same feel. I am happy to say that they have! The game play you know …
Melitta Cafe Collection Blanc et Noir Ground
I love dark roast coffee. There is nothing better than the smell, feel, and flavor of a good dark roast. Unfortunately, a lot of places thing "dark" means "burnt". After I've had some bad "dark" roast …
Avery Ink Jet Printer File Folder Labels White
I've long been a fan of Avery products. Every time I buy an off-brand just to save a few cents, I always end up with paper jams or unusable smudged, smeared, or incorrectly placed labels. Avery products …
SPINAL STRETCH Portable Back Pain Relief
I have to say I was very impressed when I opened the box. The booklet is a great "Quick Start" guide, while the DVD gives a more in depth look at how to use the product. The carrying bag is a nice touch …
Curse of the Wolf Girl
Kalix is an illiterate drug abuser living with several friends in a flat in London. She is also a werewolf, legendary fighter, and outcast of the ruling werewolf clan. That is of course not to leave out …
The Guild Leader's Handbook: Strategies and
When people talk of creating a Guild in and MMO they often talk about the types. So people talk about hardcore versus casual. Other people talk about PvP or PvE. This guide is for anyone that thinks that …
reviewed Anthem. July 24, 2010
Anthem
A friend of mine demanded I read something by Ayn Rand. I looked and they were written in like the early-ish 1900s. This was the shortest one, so I decided why not. Wow. This was just weird and bad and …
reviewed The Long Way Home. July 23, 2010
The Long Way Home (The Homelanders)
This book continues the saga of the "typical American boy" who is being hunted down as a murderer. Ok, typical if you don't consider the fact that he unbelievable karate skills and is also be hunted by …
Adventures of a Cat-Whiskered Girl
This book was my first introduction to Daniel Pinkwater's writing. I somehow managed to miss his previous offerings the Neddiad and the Ygyssey. I think you could best describe Adventure's of a Cat-Whiskered …
reviewed A Wish After Midnight. July 23, 2010
A Wish After Midnight
I really didn't know what to expect when I first picked up this book. I am a huge fan of time travel dramas, but not so much of period-piece type literature. Overall, I am glad a read the book but in …
Case Logic ENST-110K 7 - 10.2-Inch
My first thought on seeing this netbook sleeve was "Wow! Now that looks different!" The knit look for the outside of the sleeve gives it a warm and personal feel. The added texture on the outside gives …
ShapeShifter -- The Demo Tapes : Year 2
I first ran into ShapeShifter, the fictional band, three or 4 years ago at a blog called The Meet & Greet. It was a cute blog by a writer and she was telling us little side stories as well as some times …

House Rules: A Novel
First, I must admit that I'm a fan of Picoult. I enjoy her writing and her stories. They can be a little formulaic, but I always feel like I learn something and I'm almost always surprised by the ending. …
reviewed Dragonfly in Amber. July 03, 2010
Dragonfly in Amber
This the 2nd of the Outlander series and I just finished this one. Like the first, it's long, excessively so. What makes this different from the first, however, is that it's really really slow. About …
reviewed Her Very Special Robot. July 03, 2010
Her Very Special Robot
This wasn't bad as far as short story erotica goes, but maybe the author could have left out one sex scene and develop the characters just a little bit more. It opens with the main characters being all …
reviewed The Merry-Go-Round. June 20, 2010
The Merry-Go-Round
This book opens in a very unconventional way. I read some of this of this genre (chicklit) and it can be kind of overly formulaic, but I was surprised and intrigued from the get go, I didn't yawn once …

Arcane Legions: 2-Player Starter
I recently was looking for something for my 9 year old to do. With summer upon us he is cut off from the normal social activities that revolve around school. We went to a local games shop in Austin and …
Sanford Expo Neon Markers & Magnetic Dry Erase
I have 2 children that can be pretty forgetful. I've tried a reminder board in the past, but the messages never really got their attention. I decided to try one more time with the EXPO NEON Markers and …
reviewed Rescue Me. June 12, 2010
Rescue Me
When asked to read and review a book by this author, I was drawn several times to this title because of the description. It's not something you particularly WANT to read about, but it's reality and it's …
V-MODA R-ROUGE Remix In-Ear Headphones (Rouge)
Using in-ear headphones in the past has always caused pain in my ears after a few minutes. I've never really been picky about headphones. One set is basically like any other, right? I will never make …
DLO GameCase Boost for iPod touch 2G, 3G
When I first got my iPod Touch the very first thing I did was download some games for the kids. Most of these games were simple "point and click" affairs and the iPod Touch seems to be designed really …
Obese From The Heart: A Fat Psychiatrist Discloses
So, check it out... it's a book about fat people WRITTEN BY... (wait for it) a fat person! How could she dare? What does she know about losing weight? I mean, she's fat, so she obviously doesn't know …
Whiskey Sour (A Jacqueline
I like the Stephanie Plum series, but it's almost a little "too fun" in some ways. She's always doing something stupid, she's got a really annoying grandmother (note, I've only managed to make it past …
Milrose Munce and the Den of Professional Help
This book is a hoot! It's not what I was expecting, but was better. It's quite dark with a lot of dry and sarcastic humor. The story is a little unexpected and a lot of fun.     I …
reviewed Portal. May 29, 2010
Portal
So many times when I read an independent author, the main thing that sticks out to me is that the author didn't have their work edited properly. I would lay dollars to doughnuts that this particular author …
The Art of Racing in the Rain: A Novel
A friend of mine told me I should absolutely read this book last year. I hadn't gotten around to reading it when my turn for book club came up, so I recommended this book and read it. I'm a little scared …

Carpool Diem
This book didn't promise anything deep and recently I really needed something NOT deep. I will admit that the title pulled me, it is such a cute clever little title. I find myself sometimes not only judging …
Dead in the Family (Sookie Stackhouse, #10)
I was a latecomer to this series. Actually only started reading them this year because a friend made me. I loved the first several of the books and they seemed to get progressively more dark. Book 9 had …
reviewed Me & Emma. May 22, 2010
Me & Emma
I'm giving this three stars because I made the mistake of reading a few reviews on Amazon for this book to see if it was something I'd enjoy. I do that sometimes. I probably shouldn't have because someone …
Mini Office Voodoo Kit (Blue Q Mega Mini Kits)
I work out of a home office and there's no water cooler to go hang around near and complain to my coworkers about what the latest thing that weird customer is doing. Things tend to fester a bit, I have …
