Eli2abeth's Book Lists
Random titles (25 titles)
These are books I found recommended by friends, reviews seemed interesting, found at garage sales, or the title caught my eye while browsing at the library. I have just joined a book club, so those selections will be included as well.

Cover ArtTrue grit
by Portis, Charles.
This is such a great story! To quote another reviewer, "This is a gripping book about the single-minded pursuit of justice in the 1870s, written in the amazing voice of a deadpan, plain-speaking prose of a woman looking back at the events some 30-40 years later."   posted Apr 11, 2011 at 11:17AM

Cover ArtDewey : the small-town library cat who touched the world
by Myron, Vicki.
Charming tale (pun accidental!) about a small town librarian. A pleasant, quick read about community & relationships.   posted Mar 23, 2011 at 8:14AM

Cover ArtShanghai girls : a novel
by See, Lisa.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book - at first. Shanghai is not a city who's history is well known to me & I was fascinated by the description of life through the eyes of Pearl. But part way thru the book I tired of her and her attitude towards life. I could barely finish reading the book. However, our book club had a great conversation, as we'd all reacted differently to the sisters. Very thought provoking!   posted Feb 8, 2011 at 9:28PM

Cover ArtStill standing : the story of Ssg. John Kriesel
by Kriesel, John.
FABULOUS! A must read. A wonderful story about a man who, despite a hellish event, still sees beauty, goodness, kindness and joy in the world. Beautifully written with the no-nonsense detailed speech of a soldier who firmly believes in the 7 Army values: Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage   posted Dec 29, 2010 at 9:40PM

Cover ArtBluebird : women and the new psychology of happiness
by Gore, Ariel, 1970-
This book got great reviews, so I had high hopes. Unfortunately, I didn't agree with those reviewers :-( Maybe it was because I'm not a bra-burning feminist, or a single, lesbian mother who grew up on the west coast? I guess I should have known when I learned that she publishes a magazine called Hip Mama... I picked up a copy & immediately found it a total waste of paper. IMHO, that is. Others must like it, as it has been successful for 17 years.   posted Apr 10, 2010 at 7:52AM
