Then, the next night point out pages he ...

Absolute Beginner's Guide to Computer Basics

Schumacker and Lomax have successfully put together a guide that explains to beginners (like myself) in simple terms how the whole thing works.

This is by far the best wiccan book ever.
I love this book so much...

Beginner's Greek: A Novel
Back Bay Books
What a find!
I don't read much modern fiction. I find most of it to be self-indulgent overly wordy nonsense, or else it is poorly edited and just plain stupid. This book, Beginner's Greek, captivated me from the start. Collins is a wordsmith I can relate to--a writer whose style is beautiful enough that I am happy to read whatever he is saying. He seems to follow obligatory patterns for novels, by going ...
