reviewed Iron Man. August 28, 2010
Iron Man
My daughter is almost 12 and is clamoring to watch PG-13 movies "like all her friends do."  We recently watched this as a family.  I had read detailed reviews that said that there …
reviewed Nanny McPhee Returns. August 19, 2010
Nanny McPhee Returns
This book has a completely different feel from the movie. The movie is visual and appealing and told on film as only a good movie could do.    However, the book version comes across …

100 Classic Books
I love my kindle, so I'm not one of those readers who insist on a "real book." However, I was uncertain what I think of this application for the DS. I have the new DSiXL, and I don't think that I'd want …
The Lost Girls: Three Friends. Four Continents.
This is the story of 3 twentysomething women who left their jobs and personal lives behind in NYC to travel the world. It's a bold move and one that I envy!    As some have alluded, …
reviewed Numbers. August 16, 2010
Numbers
I give this 3.5 stars. Interesting premise, but I don't really connect to characters, and though the author sets a good pace as Jem and Spider both run away from trouble, as they are mistakenly targeted …
Guys Read: Funny Business
When I heard that this book was coming out, I was excited. My 11-year-old daughter is a bookworm, but still loves humor. My 6-year-old son can read well, but reading doesn't always grab his attention, …

Avery Ink Jet Printer File Folder Labels White
I am giving this product 5 stars because the feeding instructions (for printing) were very clear, the template was easy to find in Word, and the print quality was good.    What else …
School Days: A Keepsake Book for Pre-Kindergarten
This is a great place to collect important memories and keepsakes in a compact way.    One thing that is cool is that it's set up for kids and parents to do together. There are about …
Infinite Days (Vampire Queen)
Vampires are a big commodity -- with teens, moms, everyone. I haven't been too into the vampire craze, but I'm always up for a good dramatic story.    With INFINITE DAYS, Rebecca Maizel …

The Iron King (Harlequin Teen)
I've just spent an enjoyable few days with Julie Kagawa's The Iron King.    Her inventive fey (faery) world pulled me right in. It's one of those imagined worlds that has you amazed …
Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes
This book has wide appeal--from toddlers and preschoolers first learning their colors, to older kids as well    It's a story about colors. Pete's shoes are white, but as he takes a …

Chester's Masterpiece
Like the Scaredy Squirrel books that she also writes, the Chester books by Melanie Watt are bright, silly, and original, and must-owns in our home.     If you aren't familiar with …

Come Sunday: A Novel
This debut novel by Isla Morley deals with one of those subjects that many moms do anything to avoid pondering -- in fiction or otherwise -- the death of a child.    But if you will …
The Red Pyramid (Kane Chronicles)
I didn't realize that the whole story was supposed to be a tape made by Carter and his sister, but it made the audiobook that I listened to even more "spot on" as you listen to siblings Carter and Sophie …
reviewed I,Q : Independence Hall. August 04, 2010
I,Q (I,Q The Series)
This book is the first in a new series about terrorism and espionage. It reminds me a lot of the 24 series. Yes, there's some violence and guns, but none of it really takes place "on screen." There is …
reviewed I, Q: The White House. August 04, 2010
I, Q: The White House
If the first book reminded me of 24, the second book is even more similar to the hit TV show, taking place in the White House, and actually occurring over a 24-hour period. I, Q: The White House contains …
Aug '10 - Aug '11 BusyBodyBook Personal & Family
Until I started using the BusyBodyBook 3 years ago, I couldn't get into using a planner. Even in this digital age, I don't use my ipod touch or yahoo calendar or anything like that. I like to write my …

Not Your Mother's Microwave Cookbook: Fresh,
I love the Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook. When I saw that NOT YOUR MOTHER'S MICROWAVE COOKBOOK was available, I thought I'd give it a try. If Beth Hensperger can rescue the crock pot from cream …
reviewed Boom!. July 22, 2010
Boom!
Generally my daughter (age 11) and I agree on a book. If I think she'll like it, she does, even if she wouldn't have picked it out herself. If she reads a book that she loves and tells me I'd like it, …
Sleepy Kittens (Despicable Me)
Just the fact that this book exists makes me happy. The bedtime story theme is so sweet in the movie, and having this as a tie-in is a lot of fun.    There is NOT a little brush that …

Despicable Me
We are fairly new to the DS. We got one a month or two ago, and bought a few games for it. My kids are used to playing games on the ipod Touch, and at first, I was not at all impressed with the graphics …
Fly Away Home: A Novel
I like Jennifer Weiner. I've read quite a few of her novels and a short story collection, and either liked each one, really liked it, or loved it. Once you have that kind of familiarity with an author, …
reviewed Finny: A Novel. July 13, 2010
Finny: A Novel
Finny is a dramatic character-driven novel that follows Delphine "Finny" Short's life from early childhood well into adulthood. It's sort of a coming-of-age novel, not ending with young adulthood, but …
reviewed A Good Confession. July 11, 2010
A Good Confession
Whenever I read British literature, I find myself transported. It seems so foreign to me, even more so than reading the South Asian authors and Middle Eastern authors who I love, perhaps because I always …
reviewed Room: A Novel. July 10, 2010
Room: A Novel
This is the kind of book that is better the less you know about it.    Even the product description above, and probably most of the reviews here will give you more information than …

The Sky is Everywhere
One day Lennie has a sister, a prominent place in the band as a clarinet player, a best friend - she's basically a normal 17-year-old girl. The next day everything has changed when her sister Bailey dies. …
Avery Nonstick Heavy-Duty EZD Reference View 2
This binder is sturdy, and has a large ring that holds a lot without being bulky.    No matter how secure the rings are supposed to be in a notebook, after time, they seem to become …

Backyard Sports: Sandlot Sluggers
When I gave this to my kids (an 11 year old girl and a 6 year old boy), they figured it out right away. Both of them said that the controls (for the players and game actions) were easy to figure out and …
reviewed Memoirs of a Goldfish. June 15, 2010
Memoirs of a Goldfish
This is a lovely, bright, and whimsical picture book. Since my favorite genre at the moment is memoir, I loved the play on that genre -- a picture book that is set up as a goldfish's diary.     "Day …
Matchbox Sky Busters Aircraft Carrier Playset
I honestly wondered how much play value my recently-turned 6-year-old son would get out of it. It seemed so simple. What would he do with it? Well, thankfully I was wrong. He loves this thing!     Wha …
The Bucolic Plague: How Two Manhattanites Became
Author's caution:     "This book is not about living your dream. It will not inspire you. You will not be emboldened to attempt anything more than making a fresh pot of coffee."    &nbs …
Secret Clinical Strength Advanced Solid, All Day
I think it's funny that this is just billed as the "all day fresh" scent, when the real draw is the fact that it's waterproof. This is a perfect feature for a day at the pool or beach, where it's not …
Hoping for Something Better: Refusing to Settle
This was my first encounter with Nancy Guthrie. I loved the way she shared her personal experience in a relevant way. Knowing her struggles makes her teaching and advice more credible.    The …
reviewed LEGO: A Love Story. June 06, 2010
LEGO: A Love Story
This book has a fantastic cover that initially drew me to it. The idea of an adult man reconnecting with a childhood love of building bricks was also fascinating.     It's billed as …
Secret Clinical Strength, Light and Fresh
Per the instructions, you are supposed to apply this at night. My normal routine (and I'm assuming that of many others) is to apply it in the morning, so this took a bit of getting used to.    And …
Secret Daughter: A Novel
Shilpi Somaya Gowda's first book is excellent. I'm already looking forward to her second.    Her writing is rich and descriptive and beautiful -- yet not overly flowery at all.      …
Getting the Pretty Back: Friendship, Family, and
No, no -- not THAT F-word, this one: Forty.    As Molly enters her 40's she looks back on other phases of her life, from those teen years that were immortalized on screen in such hits …
reviewed Innocent. May 19, 2010
Innocent
Presumed Innocent was THE book back in the early 90's -- THE book that everyone read and that everyone was talking about. The movie just fueled it. It isn't often that a book's ending totally catches …

A Soft Place to Land: A Novel
I'm not exactly sure why this book lacks the "wow" factor that I reserve for a 4- or 5-star rating. The writing was good, the setting was very interesting (San Francisco and Atlanta, tony private schools, …
Scotch Adhesive Dot Roller, 0.33 x 49 Feet
I love this little product. The price seems a bit high, but it's not only neat and easy, but it works well. I used a very small (1/2 inch) length of tape to stick a rather awkward project together (an …
