My Man Jeeves
P. G. Wodehouse
Classic dry Wodehouse humor, read by a master
This DVD contains three Jeeves stories, wonderfully interpreted by the talented Martin Jarvis. The reading of the stories is so good that you can easily envision the hilarious antics of the ever-bumbling Bertie and his "gentleman's gentleman" Jeeves. The first story is the best because it is actually about the two main characters. The second and third stories concern events, narrated by either ...
Tik-Tok of Oz
L. Frank Baum
One of the best of the Series
I teach creative writing to children and have used this book as an excellent model for the fantasy genre. It has all the great elements of a fantasy story--strange and enchanted happenings, magical creatures, faeries, and a wonderful quest. Many of Baum's books are not so plot-driven; this, like "The Patchwork Girl of Oz" is an exception, and the story works marvelously. Fans of the Oz series ...
From the Publisher
"The word 'pragmatism' is used everywhere today, from business to sports to politics. Although the word hadn't yet entered everyday language when William James published Pragmatism in 1907, the philosopher believed its doctrine had virtually become common sense in twentieth-century America. For James, pragmatism was a specific philosophical alternative to essentialism and foundationalism and ...
Ozma of Oz
L. Frank Baum
Another Great Oz Book By L Frank Baum
Though LONG past my childhood, I still find delight in re-reading Baum,s books about Oz and all the wonderful characters in each story. My dad used to read these stories to us when my sister and I were children. How we used to beg for 'just one more chapter, please.' I have not yet introduced our little granddaughter to these marvelous books, but will do so on her very next ' overnight visit'. ...
The Island of Doctor Moreau
H. G. Wells
Yesterday's horror meets today's science lab
I got this on Kindle simply because it looked interesting and was $0.00. Once I began to preview the book to determine whether or not I was going to keep in on my Kindle or delete it...I couldn't put it down! The language is somewhat dated however, it adds to the story line and keeps the events back in the time they should be rather than allowing them to creep into today's timeframe. It is so ...
The Scarecrow of Oz
L. Frank Baum
Buyer's review of The Scarecrow of Oz
The book arrived promptly via standard shipping. The dust cover and the book were in excellent condition. I am very pleased with the book and Amazon's service.
Glinda of Oz
L. Frank Baum
A great Baum Oz book
If WIZARD is Baum's ODYSSEY, this one is his ILIAD. It's the most conflict-centered piece except RINKITINK and maybe THE LAND OF OZ. More than most, this book has a plot which begins, develops, and concludes. More than most, it lets you watch the magicians at work together, pooling their resources to accomplish a complicated task. More than most it raises interesting long-term questions ...
The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle
Sailing with the Doctor
Among the titles following The Story of Doctor Dolittle, The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle, is one of the the most exciting. This one is about his travels with the interesting animals who are his friends and companions. Hugh Lofting has managed to capture the human characteristics we sometimes see in animals and turn them into memorable figures. Dr. Dolittle's mode of travel is intriguing; the ...
UP FROM SLAVERY: AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY
Booker T. Washington
An All-time Classic
Up From Slavery: An Autobiography I remember listening to "Your Story Hour" tapes about Booker T. Washington as a child. I especially remember "that Yankee woman," as the exacting schoolmaster was called in the tapes. It was really interesting to read the book after all these years. The amazing thing is that Booker T. Washington had such a positive, progressive attitude after all he had been ...
The Creative Process in the Individual
The Principles behind the Law of Attraction
This is Judge Thomas Troward's treatment on the law of attraction nearly 100 years ago. However, this book gives us the principles behind the law and not just an application under specific conditions. Learn the principle and you know how to apply the law in every situation under all conditions. This is a MUST READ for anyone wanting to know the Law of Attraction. Chapter 1, The Starting ...
Albert Payson Terhune
Albert Payson Terhune (December 21, 1872 - February 18, 1942) was an American author, dog breeder, and journalist. The public knows him best for his novels relating the adventures of his beloved collies and as a breeder of collies at his Sunnybank Kennels, the lines of which still exist in today's Rough Collies. He was educated at Columbia University where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1893. From 1894-1914, he worked as a reporter for ...
Annie Wood Besant
Charles Webster Leadbeater
This is a very challenging book. It is challenging to read (17.5 reading level; 10.0 average) and it makes demands on your belief system as well. I am using the book to reactivate, restimulate brain cells relative to an understanding of higher consciousness thinking and understanding. There are realities to which we can connect given the proper frame of mind. This book helps open the door to ...
first time reading it and its a favorite
i love this book. i laughed, i cried. it makes you think. i think everyone should read this book. not so sure if a child should read it though. i would give it 10 thumbs up if i had extra hands. great story.
I absolutely love this book!
I can't believe how long it took me to pick this book up and read it. It was never on any assigned reading lists and it wasn't until a few years after college, when I had more time for pleasure reading, that I started on the unassigned classics that I had missed by having a science-based major. It is one of my top five favorite books and absolutely my favorite classic, topping even Pride and ...
The Divine Comedy: Inferno, Purgatorio, Paradiso
Dante as faithfully translated... the best available!
Dante is part of my "Life Curriculum," books that I read and reread throughout my years, inorder to establish a good basis for thinking and believing. They are supposed to help me live a "good" life, a moral and faithful life. This translation by Mendelbaum is exceptional. It adheres to the poetic spirit of the epic, as well as the intended meaning. In this edition, the notes at the back of the ...
Humility: The Beauty of Holiness
It's difficult to find teachings on Humility; perhaps because humility in the bibilical sence is so against the natural human state. This book is a must read but it will not ring well to the ears of a secular postmodernist.
To Have and To Hold
Historic Christian Epic Drama
This is one of the most captivating novels I've read in a long time. Originally published in 1907 for the Jamestown tercentennial, it was republished last year for the four hundredth birthday of the Jamestown settlement. Appropriately, the setting is colonial Jamestown. Several history characters are introduced and become a part of the story. James Rolfe is the best friend of the story's ...
My Bondage and My Freedom
First Modern Totalitarian Police State
Historians often call the Civil War the first modern war, a precursor to the great battlefield slaughterhouses of the twentieth century. Frederick Douglass shows that America was also first to invent the totalitarian police state. It's hard to believe Stalin didn't have MY BONDAGE AND MY FREEDOM prominently positioned on his bookshelf for frequent consultation because the Soviet system of ...
Lilith: A Romance
Re-read every few years
This is one of my all time favorite books. You will find tinges of this book in the writings of CS Lewis... and JK Rowlings. The images MacDonald creates and the story line, will haunt you for years to come. And the theology... though challenging and a bit controversial... will force you to rethink some of your ideas about salvation and damnation. An important note on this particular ...
