Same Kind of Different As Me: A Modern-Day Slave, an International Art Dealer, and the Unlikely Woman Who ...
Thomas Nelson, 2008
It has been a long time since a book has touched my heart and called me to my responsibility to show love like God's commands us to. Same Kind of Different As Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore is the true story of two lives that couldn't be farther apart. That is until a woman, Ron's wife Debbie, felt called by God that she and her husband were to pursue a relationship with Denver at the homeless ...
Knockout: Interviews with Doctors Who Are Curing Cancer--And How to Prevent Getting It in the First Place
Should be required reading for anyone with cancer or anyone wanting to prevent it.
This is a very important book. I've been buying a bunch and giving them to friends who have been recently diagnosed with cancer (that's 5 people within my small sphere of friends!) Somers is brave to try to get the word out about stuff that is really working that's not mentioned by conventional doctors. What scares me is that even before I read her book when I would ask my oncologist about ...
The Girl Who Played with Fire
Amazing wrap up
Although I am sad to be finished with this series, it was an amazing end. I will recommed these books to everyone I know
Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook
Funny and fantastic!
Anthony Bourdain is one of those polarizing personalities whom one either loves or hates. The same can be said for his latest book, "Medium Raw". Personally, I enjoy Bourdain's bristly sarcasm, dry as a bone humor, scathing cynicism, and vulgar language. Not surprisingly then, I found this book to be thoroughly entertaining. Chapters swing between impassioned raves and rants about various ...
The Man Who Would Be King
Public Domain Books, 2005
One of Kipling's better short stories
This is a story about two con men in British Imperial India who cook up a scheme to make themselves kings in Afghanistan. One of Kipling's better short stories, it was admired by writers as disparate as J.M. Barrie and H.G. Wells. It suffers a little from having had a zillion imitators in the intervening century or so, and like a lot of Kipling's works, there's an undertone of paternalistic ...
Charles Shea, 2010
Great story line
I too like so many others in the Kindle world (I have noticed) download random, inexpensive or free books, sometimes taking our chances with what we are getting. I personally had never read anything by Charles Shea, but I thought the book was great! I found it hard to put my Kindle down and on my breaks, reading from my iPhone at work! I have since added him to my "of oh yeah, I will read this ...
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest
Masterful End To Fantastic Trilogy
This last novel in the trilogy by Stieg Larsson did not disappoint in any way. It was a masterful weaving of many plot lines which kept the reader thoroughly engaged until the very end. It is a shame that Stieg Larsson will not be producing more novels. He was extremely talented.
Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World (Random House ...
Random House Trade Paperbacks
A fascinating and fascinated account
This is a fascinating and fascinated account of Dr. Paul Farmer, a heroic doctor who has dedicated his life to helping the poor and combat infectious diseases all around the globe, but especially in Haiti. In the age of the monstrous celebrity and the muckracking biographies, it is refreshing to come across such and individual as Farmer, and such an account as Kidder's. The book chronicles ...
Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy Bundle: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, ...
Each book in this trilogy is very good. They take place in Sweden, so the Swedish names and towns can get a little tedious. All are intriguing, well written and hard to put down. You will become a huge fan of Lisbeth Salander, the heroine. I highly recommend all 3 of these books!

Horse Soldiers: The Extraordinary Story of a Band of US Soldiers Who Rode to Victory in Afghanistan
This book was great. I have a friend in the Special Forces. We always ask him what he is doing. He said this book explains what they do fairly well. I recommend it.
The Council of Dads: My Daughters, My Illness, and the Men Who Could Be Me
Just by reading the description of this story I knew it was going to be a tearjerker. The book did not disappoint. Right from the first chapter, I found myself emotionally attached the the author and his family. I needed to read more to find out how they survived during the author's year-long ordeal. One of the things I enjoyed about this book was the chapter layout. The first chapter in this ...
The Case of the Man Who Died Laughing: From the Files of Vish Puri, Most Private Investigator
Simon & Schuster, 2010
I loved this book, the second in the Vish Puri series by Tarquin Hall, as much as Hall's first book in the series, "The Case of the Missing Servant". Both mysteries are set in India and the sights, sounds, and smells of India are immediate on every page. Vish Puri, nicknamed "Chubby" by his wife, loves to eat, and so lots of great Indian food is described as Vish falls often off the diet wagon. ...
