Sam Walton's Way
FT Press, 2010
A little history, a lot of business insights
Wal-Mart is such a big part of our lives. I live in a small town where it not only offers products that we normally wouldn't have access to, but valuable career opportunities. Sam Walton's Way is a quick, easy read; perfect for a quiet lunch break. New Word City does a great job of effectively combining the story of how Sam Walton created Wal-Mart with all the valuable business lessons he ...

I am still reading a different book at this time, but all my friends have read this book and their are 2 others that goes with it. Its a heart breaker! My friends say you won't lay it down. The seller was also all and all.
City of Thieves: A Novel
I loved it! This book was captivating, the style of writing was superb, the dark humor, with the brutal truth made this book hard to put down!
The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon
A Thrilling Adventure
David Grann remarks that one of the common strains in his writing is obsession. In The Lost City of Z Grann gives us a biographical and anthropological history of Colonel Perry Fawcett's expeditions, said to be the inspiration for Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World. The world of Fawcett is delightfully recounted through the views of some of his contemporaries such as biologist James Murrary. ...

When You Reach Me
Wendy Lamb Books, 2009
Things That I Love About This Book
This is the reigning Newbery Award winner, I FINALLY read this book... in one day. It was awesome. I can totally see why it won the golden Newbery medal. Miranda's mother is practicing to be a contestant on The $20,000 Pyramid... you know, that show where a celebrity describes words and you have to guess them, and then vice versa, and in the end they go into the winners circle and the celeb has ...
The Devil in the White City: A Saga of Magic and Murder at the Fair that Changed America
Two Great Tales in One City
Author Erik Larsen has created a vivid portrayal of a tale of one city with two parallel stories. Historical nonfiction is a literature favorite of my and Larson has created a compelling read. The center of the story is the 1893 Chicago World's Fair and its architect, Daniel H. Burnham, who oversees the construction of the White City. The parallel story involves a young, charismatic doctor, ...
The Complete Wizard of Oz Collection, All 15 Books, including The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Ozma of Oz, The ...
I'm a huge Oz fan, but a warning for people getting this collection
I consider myself a huge Oz fan. I have all of the forty original books in the series, I have Russian Oz books (a parallel series), I have the silent Oz movies, and have been to an Oz convention. I've always considered the first book (the most famous) as one of the weakest in the series. That book doesn't have the light charm (and many puns) of the later books in the series. For example, ...
Streetwise Paris Map - Laminated City Center Street Map of Paris, France
Indispensible for a trip to Paris
Being the tightwad that I am, I initially hoped to get by on a free map of Paris from an info station. Fortunately my brilliant husband insisted that we get a good map. We used this map constantly during our week in Paris, and since it rained most of the time we were there, the waterproof nature of the map was especially handy! It was also great to see the metro and train lines superimposed ...
Kill The Story
Capital City Books, 2010
I really enjoyed this fast paced novel, which I downloaded to my Kindle for PC. The author kept the suspense and pace at a good level throughout. There were a couple of instances of "you're" instead of "your" but I have noticed that MS Word incorrectly transposes these words and only very close editing prevents their misuse. These typos should only trouble the most demanding and don't hinder the ...
City of Glass
Margaret K. McElderry, 2009
awesome book. read it. also, they make vampires and wolverines monsters. not the mushy ones from twilight.
Grand Central Publishing, 2009
I was never tempted to not finish this book in spite of the length...from author of EXPLOSION IN PARIS...
This is a huge book, a grand, sweeping multi-generational family saga, love, loyalty, inheritance, beginning in the 1800's, set in Texas. This is a completely engrossing novel of three powerful families with immense wealth and property, (the original settlers), and are greatly respected in town and that will transport the reader to another world, another place, another time. The secrets of these ...

City of Ashes
Margaret K. McElderry, 2009
City of Ashes
I give this book 5/5 stars. This book continues in the same vein of City of Bones, but adding layers of suspense and mystery. This book is enthralling as you learn more about the characters and their relationships deepen. There are many changes in this book-some temporary, and some eternal. This is the perfect book to intensify the storylines until they come to a thrilling climax in City of Glass ...
Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen: A Novel
Shaye Areheart Books, 2008
Peeking into Yourself
When I read I want the plot to teach me something new on a themed topic. Equally, I want to learn more about myself. I really connected with the story and was able to relate it to my life past and present.
Frankenstein: City of Night: A Novel
Book 2 of agood read
Had been given book 1 as a gift, read it, loved it, then went looking for "city of night" but could only find book 3 in my 2 month search. I felt stagnet until someone suggested 'amazon.com';...I recommend Dean Koontz's "Frankenstein Trilogy" as pure entertainment.

Hyperion Book CH

Elisa Lorello, 2008
A Must Read
I read Faking It in two days and was thrilled to get Ordinary Worlds and finished it in the same, two days. I want part 3. I will say this is the correct blend of humor, love and friendship. Writers like this are hard to find and I think we need to get the word out about Ms Lorello. Thanks for the great adventure Andi and David. Recommend this to your friends whether male or female.
