Abide with Me
In a word: FABULOUS!! This book was one that I just couldn't put down...and who wanted to? I'm already on the edge of my seat waiting for the sequel....the ending certainly leaves you with that expectation. …

Beyond Desire (Arabesque)
A marriage of convenience. A man driven by the love of his beloved daughter. A man of principal and an unlimited pain threshold. A woman of pride and strength. A small Virginian town and the choices two …

I Ain't Got Time to Bleed: Reworking the Body
What this book lacks in depth, it makes up for in honesty. I would have liked to hear a little more about his wrestling career and more about what he did for Brooklyn Park as mayor but overall you get …

Nightwing
Smith is a favorite of mine. I must admit I was skeptical with this book. (A horror story about bats.) But it was totally convincing. The hero (as typical in Smith books) is reluctant and flawed, but …

Perfect Partners (Zebra Bouquet Romances)
Attorneys Chelsie Russell and Griff Stuart need niece Alix in their lives. Chelsie is determined not to lose her dead sister's little girl, but she fears the emotional loss when her help is no longer …
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1)
My 7 year old daughter and I have enjoyed this book, reading a chapter each night before she goes to bed. It is absolutely delightful, and gives children the opportunity to really become immersed in the …

Catherine Carmier
The reviews thus far tell little of what this story is about. Although I read it several years ago, as I remember this book, or at least a part of it, centered on the intra-racial divide between those …

Fire and Desire (Arabesque)
I had lamented the fact that there were no more Madaris men for Brenda Jackson to write about but family friend Trevor Grant is the next best thing. Trevor believes that after two years Corinthians (yes, …

Process Patterns: Building Large-Scale Systems
This is an amazing book that should be required reading not only for OOSP engagements, but for more traditional approaches as well. This is must reading, especially by project managers.

Cookin' with Queen Ida, Revised 2nd Edition: Bon
This is a great book filled with family stories, history, love, zydeco, and good food. I first read it about five years ago and learned so much about the culture of the creoles of African descent. Love …
reviewed Physical Optics. April 28, 1999
Physical Optics
The book's coverage is sketchy, and admittedly oriented towards a graduate course given in the optics program at the University of Colorado (which I attended). The presentation is often hurried, with …

The Norton Anthology of African American
This book is a part of my library and a great resource tool. For any writer, researcher, black historian, or literature lover of any kind, this book is a must have. The criticism from the other reviewers …

Colored People: A Memoir
This memoir had me laughing throughout, but it was also though provoking. The descriptions were so vivid, you believed you are right there in that little town witnessing Mr. Gates live and the lives of …

Our Kind of People: Inside America's Black Upper
This book had the potential of being a great resource book with the history of some of the accomplishments black folks have made against such great odds, especially during a time of Jim Crow and segregation. …

Arn Anderson 4 Ever: A Look Behind the Curtain
I read this book many months ago and it was indeed well worth the wait as I ordered it straight from the publisher. With every page, Arn is able to tell you the emotions he went through growing up poor, …
reviewed The Reader. March 05, 1999
The Reader
This is an interesting book in that it reads as a simple novel of a young man's first sexual experience with an older woman, and yet we all know it is so much more than that. Like all stories relating …
reviewed The God of Small Things. February 26, 1999
The God of Small Things
You may be curious to read this award winner which has sold so well. But it is mostly all hype, and ultimately it is a difficult to read, disjointed novel. For anyone who is interested in India, Rohinton …

My Favorite War: A Novel
This book was a humorous view of a young black journalist and renaissance man. I loved it. Yes, the incident with the teen-age girl through me for a loop but it definitely was not far-fetched or unrealistic …

Lord Foul's Bane (The Chronicles of Thomas
I don't usually read "fantasy." Normally, after about 50 pages, I realize the characters aren't involving. The author may have imagination, but can't involve on a human level. Not so with this series, …

Country Tea Parties
As a tea enthusiast,I zeroed in on this book at a book trade show. I could not find a better book for perfect tea parties. There is a bit of Old World British Charm but is not stiff and is adaptable to …

The Seven Crystal Balls (The Adventures of Tintin)
