Divinity in Disguise: Nested Meditations to Delight the Mind and Awaken the Soul
Center for Life Balance
Touched to the Core
I was deeply inspired by Kevin Anderson's book. I found his nested meditations to be both creative and profound. While I had the tendency at the beginning to rush through the meditations and look for the "punchline" at the end, I gradually learned that the process of slowly going through the meditations and grasping the meaning of each new section was worth the effort. The biggest surprise for me ...
Angel in Disguise?
Victoria Mary Clarke
When Victoria walked into my yoga studio with such beautiful energy, I knew that an angel had landed. "Are you an angel? I asked. She smiled. I felt happy, safe, and much loved in her radiant presence. I was overwhelmed when I read her previous life in "Angel in Disguise?" The distress, struggle, and pain she had experienced in the past. At present, I only see an angel smiling and warming ...
Into the Sunset
Rebel Press, 2007
Funny premise. Flawless writing. But INTO THE SUNSET, offers more. Author Donald Capone dares to tackle subjects few writers would have the courage or ability to touch: senior citizens and the willingness of a 30-year-old man to disguise himself in order to live as one of them. Ultimately, the "youngster" wearing makeup and donning a gray wig finds friendship, romance and genuine love. The ...

Chivers Audio Books
Another classic from the best living writer of English mysteries
Caroline Graham has never let me down. I'd put this book right up alongside "The Killings at Badgers Drift" as the best of a brilliant series. A reviewer thinks the loathsome Brian got too much print, but I loved every word of it. I've known men like him and I just knew he was going to get his in the end, and what a beautiful ending it is. It's hard to recommend one Graham mystery over another ...
Mercy Watson: Princess in Disguise
We have a great niece who hates to read. I was recommended these particular DiCamillo books as they are beginner readers and surely capture attention. Our niece is old for this book, nearing 10, but the stories are silly, funny and have meaning. With the Mercy stories (of the adorably-ugly pet pig) our niece began to appreciate the author. I always talk of the 'creative brain' or ask 'how do ...
Shame & Guilt: Masters of Disguise
I found this book very helpful
I remember having this book recommended to me years ago at the now closed "Journey's Bookstore" in Beaverton, Oregon. The woman who recommended it had actually heard the tape edition of this book first and was placing an order for the book version. She told me that it made her "cry for the child within her." I thought that any book that had such a powerful affect as this, must be a book I should ...
A Blessing in Disguise: 39 Life Lessons from Today's Greatest Teachers
Wonderful and Inspiring...A True Gift
This is a very special book. Like a beautiful tapestry, Dr. Cohen has woven a collection of memorable stories and elegant essays into enlightened art that can be relished and reflected on like a deep meditation. Using informed perception and personal narratives from wonderful teachers and thinkers, Dr. Cohen has grasped the wisdom that some of life's most profound blessings often come disguised ...
Angels in Disguise
For dog lovers everywhere it's a tug at the heart.
My daughter read this book first and passed it on to me, knowing that I would love it. And I did. Lou Dean writes in such a way that I felt that I was seeing the world in a way that was new yet familiar. Any one who has ever loved a dog will relate to her tale of growing up with a best friend whose tail always wags when you enter the room. A friend who loves you for yourself and for no other ...
Big Hit in Pre-K
I'm a pre-school teacher who just read Bee Wigged to my class - not only did we all laugh out loud at the surprise ending, but when we made a "B is for Bumble Bee" project later that day, the children all wanted to name their bees "Jerry." I wish every book I read in class was as smart and funny.
On Borrowed Wings: A Novel
1940s Come Alive
What a lovely story!!! And so many stories in one... so many issues dealt with by the characters.. There is a well to do, spoiled girl that marries "beneath" her and is indefinetly estranged from her parents. There is a tense marriage between an Italian immigrant and a woman not quite used to doing for herself. There is sibling rivalry as one child is always favored over the other. There is ...
Garfield's Halloween Adventure (Formerly Titled Garfield in Disguise)
Adventurous and thrilling and like the TV program!
I love "Garfield's Halloween Adventure". I read it around Halloween every year. I've read the book more than I saw the TV program. Garfield and Odie do the town going trick-or-treating and are thrilled with every moment getting candy left and right. Then, things aren't so thrilling as they wind up in a real-life very scary and frightening ghost story and experience pirate-ghosts up-close. Young ...
Athena's Disguises: Mentors in Everyday Life
Susan Ford Wiltshire
Westminster John Knox Press
This book reads like a novel, but is highly educational.
I am truly grateful that this book found its way into my library. As a student in a Depth Psychology program, I am required to do a community service summer project. For me, an obvious choice was to participate in the mentoring program at the middle school where I teach. In addition to on-site contact hours, I had to submit a research paper to summarize my experience and academic findings on ...
Love in Disguise (Super Regency, Signet)
Marvellous 1st book in an eventual trilogy
Layton did not set out to write a trilogy (according to her own website), but this book ended up the first book in a trilogy. The other two books are #2 THE GAME OF LOVE (featuring Arden Lyons, a secondary character in this book), and #3 SURRENDER TO LOVE (featuring the [person] of this book). Layton sets up the book a bit like THE DUKE'S WAGER, in that there is a triangle, with two men, both ...
An adorable story about Preston the Masked Avenger who sneaks throughout the town scaring his neighbors with his bellowing "Boo!" All is fun and games until Preston decides to scare his father and is sent to his room with out dinner. Children will love the suspense and comedy of the story. Adults will enjoy the subtle humor; such as Mr. Wolf's house having a posted sign "No Wood Cutters" ...
Buildings in Disguise: Architecture That Looks Like Animals, Food, and Other Things
Joan Marie Arbogast
Boyds Mills Press
Just wonderful; not just for kids
I ordered this book for the library where I work. My main reason was to have something on hand about Lucy, the Margate Elephant, since it's in our area. I would have been satisfied at almost anything on a child's reading level, but was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the book. The photos are large and plentiful, mostly in full color, and printed on high-quality glossy paper. The text is ...
The Mercy Watson Collection Volume II: #3: Mercy Watson Fights Crime; #4: Mercy Watson: Princess in Disguise
Listening Library (Audio)
Great job on the audible!
I don't have kids, but I was to do a pig presentation for a children's book club so I thought I better read this series! Found the audible version and I have to say it was thoroughly enjoyable! Every child should read this series!
Ouran High School Host Club 8
I truly love this series. It makes me laugh out loud. The characters are entertaining and the author just keeps adding layers to their personalities. I find it difficult to wait for the next volume.
Turkeys in Disguise
Creative and Funny!
Tom Turkey saves the day in this creative and funny children's story. It is the best kind of children's book--creative, non-violent, and amusing to the parent who will be reading it over and over. The story highlights the values of team work, problem solving, cooperation and is a way to teach these values for parents and/or teachers. I recommend it highly.
Ouran High School Host Club 10
The Fun Continues in a Great New Ouran Volume
This volume begins with a Hunny-centric episode, as Black Magic Club member Kanzuki is convinced that Hunny "stole her soul" since she can't stop thinking about him. Since she can only relate to people in terms of curses, she decides to steal his soul back (even though her curses turn out to really just be elementary school love charms). Most of the rest of the volume involves a new character, ...
Blessings in Disguise
Penguin Books Australia Ltd
Wonderful autobiography by a truly gifted, truly modest man
BLESSINGS IN DISGUISE stands out in my reading as one of the most enjoyable autobiographies I've ever encountered. Unlike so many actors, Alec Guinness is a truly modest man, and his wry humor and ability to laugh at himself are extraordinarily refreshing. Guinness is worth reading even if you've never seen one of his movies or plays or television appearances. It is a damn shame that this ...
