books about: stealing
Zebra Books, 2010
Really liked this book!
I really love the premise of this "Beauty and the Beast" style story and found it very hard to put the book down. I was a little disappointed that this book seemed to veer off the story setting from "Hunting Julian" so much and it seemed like the tone of the book was completely different. Still, I really enjoy Jacquelyn Frank's books and couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. So if you are ...
Out Stealing Horses
Graywolf Press, 2008
Horses in a Forest
I can hardly add more to the praise of Mr. Petterson's "Out Stealing Horses" only to say that I was completely engaged from the first sentences until I finished it. Spare, elegant, gritty writing in this deeply psychological narrative about a man walled into and out of his own diminishing life. He reminds me in some ways of Turgenyev. He draws relationships with the fewest words imaginable and ...

Charlie's Life Goes from Boring, to Bad, to Worse
Once upon a time it looked like Hank Thompson was good to go, he was going to the Show. He was going to be a Major Leaguer, every boy's dream, a professional baseball player. However he broke his leg, one thing led to another and now he tends bar on Manhattan's lower East Side and he lives sort of a boring, same-o, same-o life. Then one day his neighbor asked him to watch his cat while he was ...
The Clock Without a Face
what a gas!
A fun hunt for you and your family. The drawings are very "Where's Waldo"-y. If you are familiar with MASQUERADE by Kit Williams, then it is hard not to compare/contrast these two books. If you are not in it for the hunt, then perhaps you will appreciate its unconventional aesthetic. It is childishly amusing, but not much more than that. Middle props yo!
Stealing Buddha's Dinner
Very pleased with the book even tho they sold as used...in very good condition. Was not happy with the length of time in receiving the book. Otherwise everything else was excellent.

Now, Maddie's kids are in turmoil as they all face life without Bill around and the reality that he's gotten his new girlfriend pregnant.

The Baseball Codes: Beanballs, Sign Stealing, and Bench-Clearing Brawls: The Unwritten Rules of America's ...
Real fun to read
I really enjoyed this book. It's a quick and informative read, full of insights about the national game and the players engaged in it. I was surprise to find anecdotes about team dissentions (such as an important feud between Troy Percival and Mo Vaughn of the Angels). No doubt, you'll be aware of MLB's players daily life and routine, how they interact together, what they accept and what they ...
Out Stealing Horses: A Novel
Out stealing Horses
This is a book to read slowly and to savor. I have read it twice so far simply to enjoy the words, the sentences, the language. For me plot is secondary to enjoyment of the sentences. From the first paragraph the reader is intimately let in on Trond's thoughts. We have a close connection to the narrator throughout the book. This is a thoughtful and thought-provoking, reflective book that is hard ...
Oceanview Publishing, 2008
Another Larsen success
This second book is a worthy partner to his Perfect Assassin. Ward's depth of knowledge and research for the book are most impressive. I have thoroughly enjoyed the first two books and hope he is at work on a third.
So Glad I Discovered This Series
After reading the first book in this series, I could not wait to return to Lumby again. I had such a wonderful visit that I wish that this town actually existed. Right now I am in need of a place to rest and relax and Lumby is the perfect town for me to achieve both. Since I can't actually go there in real life, reading about the town in a book is the next best thing. The book starts off a ...

Random House Books for Young Readers, 2009
Another great read
My 9 year old loves to read mysteries. Ron Roy does another great job.
Spider-Man: Spider-Man versus the Vulture (I Can Read Book 2)
I read this to my 3 1/2 year old son who loved it. I liked/loved it too! Buy it if you like Spider-Man.
My Weird School Daze #5: Officer Spence Makes No Sense!
My 12 year old has enjoyed this entire series since 3rd grade. He is now in 7th grade but still loves to read the humorous saga. It is an easy quick read for him which is a nice break from the more age appropriate, school required novels.
Trail Hand: A Western Story (Leisure Western)
R. W. Stone
R.W. Stone My New Favorite Author
I used to love reading Westerns when I was in high school but lost interest in them. Then I came across Trail Hand by R.W. Stone and thought I would give it a try. The author captures the authentic feel of the old west and as I got into the pages I found myself mentally transported to the scene. It is the best Western I have read in years and I will be closely watching for any future books by ...

The Missing Mummy
Random House Books for Young Readers, 2009
Ron Roy Scores Another Hit!
My 9 year old daughter started reading these books about a year ago, and has now read every book in the series!She delights in every detail, from physical descriptions of the suspects to the personalities of the recurring charaters, and relates easily to the three kids who are the detectives. She can hardly wait for the next title to be released. This book, like the others, has a plot that is ...

Stealing God's Thunder: Benjamin Franklin's Lightning Rod and the Invention of America
Random House, 2005
Benjamin Franklin, the scientist
Stealing God's Thunder by Philip Dray is extremely well-written. Unlike many biographies of Franklin, it focuses on his science first and his role as a founding father second. This way of characterizing Franklin's life was more interesting than writing about him as a politician first and scientist second. What is most interesting is the influence that Franklin's science had on his politics and ...
