Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat: Why It's
   I'm an animal-lover. I have a cat, a dog, and a a fish that has lived abnormally long. I feed birds and hummingbirds in my back yard. I love spiders and will usually make sure they get …

Farlander
   Have you ever eaten a new dish, something you're not familiar with as a whole, but where each bite reminds you of a different dish? That's what reading Farlander was like for me - …

Midnight Riot
   First, let me just say - Harry Dresden this is *not*. Comparing Peter Grant to Dresden is like comparing Wonder Bread (Grant) to Pumpernickel (Dresden). Totally different flavors, textures …

Disney Epic Mickey (Wii)
   I was given Epic Mickey as a Christmas gift by my son, and have spent several hours playing as of now. The concept of the game is absolutely incredible, and I love the graphics. The story …

America the Edible: A Hungry History, from Sea to
   “America the Edible” is a book that’s hard to categorize. It’s a travelogue - sort of. It’s a cookbook - a little bit. It’s a memoir - certainly. It’s …
Brain Candy: Science, Paradoxes, Puzzles, Logic,
   Most puzzles are based in some time of science, so you would think that the two would work quite well together. And in "Brain Candy", they do...sort of. It's definitely NOT …
Soul of a Lion: One Woman's Quest to Rescue
   How many of us have dreamed, at one time or another, of working with wild animals? When we were children, and we wanted to be a lion tamer, or a veterinarian. To work at a zoo, or even to …
Evolving in Monkey Town: How a Girl Who Knew All
   It seems fitting to review this book right now, considering that it is currently Banned Book Week. I have a feeling that many who consider themselves Christians, particularly those of the …
The Mental Floss History of the United States: The
   I was the kind of kid who hated history in school. All the dry, dull dates that were required to be memorized. Nothing exciting EVER happened in history, at least not as it was told to us …

Luna Protein Bar
   I'm fairly finicky when it comes to "energy" bars or their ilk - most of the time, the flavors are harsh and the bars are gritty. But, as someone who has perfected the eternal …
Female Nomad and Friends: Tales of Breaking Free and Breaking Bread Around the World
   There are anthologies that work, and there are anthologies that do not. Generally, the ones that work well are those that follow a similar theme, but have stories within that are different …
Not Your Mother's Microwave Cookbook: Fresh, Delicious, and Wholesome Main Dishes, Snacks, Sides, Desserts, and More

Let me preface this review by stating that I am not in any capacity an electronics expert. I know what I like and what I don't, and that's about as far as it goes.     Having said …
US: Transforming Ourselves and the Relationships
I admit it - my first thought upon seeing that Lisa Oz had written a book was that she was attempting to capitalize upon her husband's celebrity. Her husband, of course, being Dr. Oz - the whirlwind physician …

Hunger
Famine - it's what we associate with places far away from us. Places where people lay dying, bellies bloated and children looking like skeletons. Places they make commercials about - you know the ones: …
Stories: All-New Tales
Stories is an anthology of fiction - but that is where the similarity of the stories contained in this book end. Some ring more of fantasy, some lean towards straight fiction, and a few defy easy categorization. …
The Skinny on Willpower: How to Develop Self
Willpower is the second "the skinny on" book I have read, and I must say that I enjoyed it just as much as the first (Time Management). It was entertaining, yet informative - never managing to take itself …

Healer: A Novel (The Brides of Alba Series)
Let me just start off by saying that Linda Windsor's "Healer" is not just a straight Fiction novel. It is, in fact, Christian Fiction - something of which I was not aware when I got this book. It was …

I am not an appliance novice (as one commenter hinted about another reviewer) - I have plenty of appliances and have used many more. I have worked in restaurants around still more. But this one is literally …
The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates

Frommer's Ireland Day by Day (Frommer's Day by Day

When Did I Get Like This?: The Screamer, the
I was very hesitant about this book, though I thought I'd give it a shot. Many of the books written in this vein tend to be nothing more than whining manifestos, with little insight or humor to show for …

Brigid of Kildare: A Novel

The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag: A Flavia
It's always so refreshing to read a book that is not the typical cookie-cutter stuff. One with a main character who is just plain, old-fashioned fun and a story that keeps you guessing. As with his first …
