I found this textbook extremely useful for someone who wants to upgrade knowledge on literacy and reading comprehension issues. All the articles are discussions on the most recent research in each area related to reading comprehension. The book is divided in five parts: new theoretical direction (note the dual coding theory if you care about building vocabulary and improving comprehension with ...
Shadow and Light, Volume 1
A unique erotic combination
Here's some things you don't often find in erotic graphic novels: Realistically drawn (though very sexy!) bodies; an acknowledgement that kinky sex can be loving and tender--and still very kinky; highly explicit sex combined with sensitive insight into character. The art is beautiful as well--the characters look like people you might know, or might want to know, and that makes the book all ...
An engaging historical mystery.
Just finished this book and I was very happy to have read it, recommended it to friends and even did a notice on facebook. The author obviously researched the era that she wrote in and the details and overview of the time period was engaging, as was the plot. It doesn't hurt that the author is really cute too! If you want some escapist literature that will teach you something about British ...

Court-Martial at Parris Island: The Ribbon Creek Incident
John C. Stevens
University of South Carolina Press
I have not yet read this book, but after reading the reviews, I thought a further recommendation might be helpful. My grandfather, Colonel William B. McKean, was in command of the weapons training battalion at Parris Island when the Ribbon Creek incident took place. He wrote a book about his experiences and impressions called Ribbon Creek. It is out of print but still possible to find through ...
Docufictions: Essays On The Intersection Of Documentary And Fictional Filmmaking
Gary Don Rhodes
John Parris Springer
McFarland & Company
Through most of the 20th century, the distinction between the fictional narrative film and the documentary was vigorously maintained. The documentary tradition developed side by side with, but in the shadow of, the more commercially successful feature film. In the latter part of the century, however, the two forms merged on occasion, and mockumentaries (fictional works in a documentary format) and docudramas (reality-based works in a ...

An Apprenticeship (Texas Pan American Series)
University of Texas Press
Just One Drink...
Lispector is an incredible writer, the type that causes me to wish I knew a time traveller so I could go back and try my darnedest to seduce her into bed. I say this absurd line because her writing, her style, her heart and her head are unlike any I've ever read or heard, ever. It seems so poignantly to fit the style of thinking that my generation (b. 1982) expresses, when they can express it, ...

A fascinating read for the lay man and the scholar. A must for translators and anyone fascinated by languages. A must for any lover of learning and for anyone unfamiliar with the subject matter because this is definitely something you will want to know about. Just reading the introduction made it impossible to put down.

Moses went to Mississippi in the early 1960's, in ...

The Boot Camp experience
Lee Reynolds has written a great book about 'the old days' in boot camp at Parris Island. A former Marine, Mr Reynolds uses his considerable writing talents to tell us about his experiences as a 'boot' back in the day... With plenty of stories, and some amazing 'language' with which to accent them, he makes us feel like we're being quarterdecked along with him. Well done Mr Reynolds !!
The Proud Bastards: One Marine's Journey from Parris Island through the Hell of Vietnam
E. Michael Helms
A Powerful Account
Never have I read a more gripping combat account. It's a wild, unfettered ride. From the author's numbing, raunchy belittlement at Parris Island Marine boot camp to fighting in a faraway country he found "luring, lovely, and lethal," Helms pulls no punches. I especially like "Mikey's" biting, insightful running dialogue with himself. Often as I read a book I will pause and thumb through a few ...
