The Third Gate: A Novel
If you are a fan of stories about Egyptology, mummy's tombs or curses, you will definitely enjoy The Third Gate by Lincoln Child. Even if you aren't a fan of those things (and I am not really), …

Yes, Chef
I think it is a common issue in our culture to feel like we know someone from watching them on television. I have seen Chef Marcus Samuelsson many times on TV, including Top Chef Masters, Top Chef and …

When Women Were Birds: Fifty-four Variations on Voice
I kept seeing this book on a list of books offered to me; I was intrigued by the title, but ultimately would pass it by for something I thought more of a "sure thing." But it would not leave me be--it …

Case Logitc EHC-102 Pro Point and Shoot Camera
When I ordered this, it was described as a HARD CASE for a point and shoot camera. I wanted something that I could store my camera in to travel with or throw in my backpack on a hike and not have to worry …

Natural Balance Sweet Potato & Fish Small Breed
My Shih Tzu, Missy, had pretty bad tummy problems (vet says food allergies) for the first two years after I adopted her in 2008. Then I discovered Natural Balance products...specifically the limited ingredient …

The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency: The Complete
I have been renting this series from Netflix over the past few months, and I became addicted to the delightful world created from the Alexander McCall Smith novel of the same name, which I also very much …

SketchBook Mobile
I LOVE this app, but I disagree with the product description that this would necessarily be the right choice for the 'casual doodler.' I love to draw (though I am not a trained artist) and have used a …
Domestic Violets: A Novel (P.S.)
What I read about this book before ordering it indicated that it was laugh-out-loud funny. The fact that I didn't find it to be so doesn't mean it was a bad book. There is humor, to be sure...it just …

Green & Black's Organic Classic Collection Gift
This Classic Collection of Green & Black's organic miniature dark and milk chocolate bars is not only of high quality but it features a nice selection of both the familiar (plain dark and milk chocolate, …

Maxell 500 GB GENpro 2.5-Inch External Hard Drive 665208 (Black)
There are plenty of very technically knowledgeable people who can give you the detailed techie specs on this--I'm not one of them! However, for the rest of the folks in the world who aren't super techie, …

The Sleeping Doll: A Novel
I am a long-time fan of Jeffery Deaver--specifically his Lincoln Rhyme series and some of this non-series books like The Blue Nowhere. This is my first time reading one of his books in the Kathryn Dance …

Kind Healthy Grains Clusters (Pack of 3)
Let's get the unpleasant stuff out of the way first:    1. Calling this product "clusters" falls somewhere between false advertising and a grand exaggeration. Sure, there may be clusters …

26 Bars & a Band Death Star Retractable Dog Leash
I have a 15-pound Shih Tzu who (despite her small, foo foo dog appearance) can sometimes be a ferocious puller on the leash, so I have to have a leash with a handle big enough and solid enough to safely …
You Can Create An Exceptional Life
I read a book by Cheryl Richardson many years ago called "Life Makeovers" that really impacted me at the time. While I had heard of Louise, mostly in regard to her work with AIDS patients many years ago, …

Ready Player One
Awesome read, but perhaps for too narrow an audience. If you lived through the 80s as a teenager or adult, and loved the iconic TV shows, movies and videogames of the era, you will very likely LOVE this …
Becoming Fearless: My Ongoing Journey of Learning
You have probably heard the saying "Let go and let God." In Becoming Fearless, Michelle Aguilar, winner of season 6 of The Biggest Loser (TBL), talks about how she put this saying into practice in her …

PetSafe Lickety Stik 1.6-Fluid Ounce, Bacon Flavor
Lickety Stik is a lickable (vs. edible) dog treat that comes in a variety of flavors, such as bacon, liver and chicken. The container looks something like an old-style stick of deordorant with a plastic …

Kashi, Cereal Berry Blossoms, 10.5 OZ (Pack of 12)
Saw this new cereal at the grocery store for the first time yesterday and decided to try it. I have found Kashi cereals to be of high quality in the past (as well as being healthy), so I had high hopes. …

Stuhrling Original Women's 109SW2.1115C2
I was captured with the look of this watch when I saw it listed as a Gold Box special recently. The face of the watch is so colorful, funky and fun that I found myself ordering it even though I really …

K&H Cool Bed III Cooling Dog Bed
I have a 15-pound Shih Tzu (she is not overweight, just on the large end of the breed standard). Shih Tzus, being a Brachycephalic breed, can overheat very easily due to their reduced breathing capacity …

Big Boss Juicer, 700W 18,000 RPM
The Big Boss Juicer is 700W and 18,000 RPM, which makes it pretty darned powerful. It can reduce a large navel orange to juice in a matter of seconds. Problem is, every time I've tried it, one large navel …
Black & Decker BL3000S 475-Watt 4-Speed Die-Cast
The first thing I tried when I got the blender was to chop some bell peppers because I was making quesadillas and saw the blender had a "chop" button. Well, it made a complete mess of the peppers. Some …
Northwest Angle: A Novel (Cork O'Connor)
This is my second Cork O'Connor mystery by William Kent Krueger. The first was Heaven's Keep, which was okay, but this book is much better at starting the action right from the get-go and keeping it going. …
Wusthof Le Cordon Bleu 8 inch Cooks Chef Knife
In the accompanying video, I use the Wusthof Le Cordon Bleu 8-inch Chef's Knife to slice and dice bell peppers, slice and core tomatoes and take corn off the cob. All of it nearly effortless with this …

In the accompanying video, I demonstrate the Philips Fidelio Docking Speaker with my iPod, but it can also be used with an iPad or iPhone. There are only four buttons on the product, so it's simple …

If you're as forgetful as I am, you need to keep your grocery store coupons, bills and other important papers right in front of your face. These Post-It Brand Pockets are very helpful for doing so. This …

I got the pastel selection of these Avery Sticky Notes and love the color selection--aqua/turqoise, pink, pale lavendar and a pale spring green (they also come in other color selections). There is about …
BIC Velocity Bold Ball Pen, 1.6mm, Black, 2ct
The packaging on this Bic Velocity pen promises "Bold, Vivid Lines" and "Smoothest Pen in the Universe!" I can't say I've tested enough pens to confirm the latter, but I can definitely confirm the former.  &nbs …

I bought this as my first Kindle book because I'd heard it was laugh-out-loud funny and I wanted something light to read on the plane for a trip I was taking. I think I made it halfway through the book …

State of Wonder
I struggled with how to rate this book because of the gap between my expectations and the reality. When you're talking about an author as good as Ann Patchett (author of Bel Canto), it's easy to have …
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
I had heard people talking about this book ever since it was published--countless people I know had read it and loved it--so I bought it; but then I found myself passing it by on my TBR (to be read) shelf …

Every Day (2010)
The description for this movie makes it sound rather amusing in a sad-sack way, but I just found it dismal. There is an impressive gathering of talent--Liev Shrieber, Helen Hunt and Brian Dennehy especially--but …
