Cover ArtImitation of Life - Two Movie Collection (DVD)
It would be nice to know what the other movie is. Imitation of Life is one of my favorites, but I don’t know if I’m ready to see it again. Oh well, reserve it anyway and be surprised I say!   posted Dec 11, 2012 at 8:25AM

Cover ArtThe Nutcracker [DVD]
a real crowd pleaser, but I like Swan Lake much better.   posted Oct 8, 2009 at 2:04PM

Cover ArtSwan lake [DVD]
My all-time favorite - I have to watch this several times a year just for the music alone!   posted Oct 8, 2009 at 2:04PM

Cover ArtCoppelia [DVD]
this would be fun for all ages - about a guy who falls who love with a girl who turns out to be a doll, so he goes back to his old girlfriend (who for some reason takes him back!!) - music is beautiful.   posted Oct 8, 2009 at 2:03PM

Cover ArtAlice in wonderland [audio cassette]
I listened to the CD book narrated by Jim Dale - I try to listen to EVERYTHING he narrates (Harry Potter books, Around the World in 80 Days, A Christmas Carol) - what a fun book for all ages!   posted Oct 17, 2008 at 8:35AM

Cover ArtAround the world in 80 days
by Verne, Jules, 1828-1905
I mainly listened to the CD book narrated (he's fabulous), but the book is SO GOOD!!   posted Oct 17, 2008 at 8:33AM

Cover ArtThe lucky one
by Sparks, Nicholas
I'm having a hard time being excited about anything Nicholas Sparks writes these days - they always follow the same pattern - boy meets girl, they fall in love, they have a big breakup, they get back together - he's the Danielle Steel of the male gender!   posted Oct 17, 2008 at 8:31AM

Cover ArtPS, I love you
by Ahern, Cecelia, 1981-
This is a fantastic book. The movie was not as good. They might as well have used an entirely different title - there were that many changes, additions, etc.   posted Dec 26, 2007 at 8:04AM

Cover ArtLike water for chocolate : a novel in monthly installments, with recipes, romanc
by Laura Esquivel
I hated this book, and I hated the movie.   posted Dec 19, 2007 at 7:55AM

Cover ArtLois on the loose : one woman, one motorcycle, 20,000 miles across the Americas
by Pryce, Lois
This book has inspired me to trek out on my own adventure - not like Lois, but anything is possible!   posted May 30, 2007 at 10:03AM

by O'Hurley, John
This book is fabulous. It will be my latest book to recommend to everyone. Very funny. Read it, that is an order.   posted May 25, 2007 at 1:07PM

Cover ArtAnyone but you
by Crusie, Jennifer
You can't go wrong reading anything Jennifer writes. This is a great book for a single woman with a dog.   posted May 24, 2007 at 8:07AM

Cover ArtTruck : a love story
by Perry, Michael, 1964-
I loved Michael's other books - this, not so much. After a while, i skipped all the truck parts and got to the rest. He is quite the story teller! I recommend any of his other books. I'd actually like to have him as a friend.   posted May 23, 2007 at 8:09AM

Cover ArtThe mammy
by O'Carroll, Brendan, 1955-
Sometimes you'll come across an author who is so good, you stay up all night reading the book. This is the first in a series of three books. This was made into a TV movie called "Agnes Browne". Read the book first!   posted May 16, 2007 at 1:35PM

Cover ArtDream when you're feeling blue : a novel
by Berg, Elizabeth
I'm a great fan of Elizabeth Berg. I discovered her after seeing a movie called "Open House" based on one of her books. I've now read them all and can't wait for the next one to be printed. If you're a fan of the WW II era, this is an especially good book to read.   posted May 9, 2007 at 12:58PM

Cover ArtDry ice [compact disc] : [a novel]
by White, Stephen, 1951-
I'm a fan and have read all the Alan Gregory novels - this is by far my favorite!   posted May 2, 2007 at 8:08AM

Cover ArtNature girl [compact disc]
by Hiaasen, Carl
You can't go wrong with any of Carl's books. The characters are people you'd want to know or NOT.   posted Apr 24, 2007 at 7:56AM

Cover ArtHats off to Hyacinth [DVD]
This series is hilarious. the series is called "Keeping Up Appearances". You must start at the beginning.   posted Apr 19, 2007 at 11:31AM

Cover ArtThe pursuit of happyness
by Gardner, Chris
It's almost as if the screenwriter only read the middle of the book - what a waste of a movie. If you must see the movie, do not read the book first. You'll be SO disappointed.   posted Apr 9, 2007 at 7:39AM

Cover ArtIn her shoes
by Weiner, Jennifer
It was the movie that got me to read all of Jennifer Weiner's books. She's a great writer.   posted Apr 4, 2007 at 3:15PM

Cover ArtThe Christmas shoes
by VanLiere, Donna, 1966-
If you're looking for a tear jerker, any of her books will fit the bill.   posted Apr 4, 2007 at 3:15PM

Cover ArtMary Poppins
by Travers, P. L. 1899-1996
If I'd read this before I saw the movie, the movie would have been a terrible disappointment. The books (there are several) are so much better!   posted Apr 4, 2007 at 3:10PM

Cover ArtImpossible
by Steel, Danielle
Sappy and predictable like most of Steel's books. I guess sometimes I'm in the mood for sappy and predictable.   posted Apr 3, 2007 at 11:11AM

Cover ArtHarris and me : a summer remembered
by Paulsen, Gary
I'm a great Gary Paulsen fan, but I'd have to say this is my favorite. Harris is a stitch!! You can't go wrong reading anything by Paulsen.   posted Mar 22, 2007 at 8:04AM

Cover ArtThe accidental florist : a Jane Jeffry mystery

by Cabot, Meg
This is the first in a series of "princess" books.   posted Feb 21, 2007 at 3:52PM

You must listen to the CD book versions. Jim Dale is the greatest. I purposely look for CD books that he reads.   posted Feb 21, 2007 at 11:21AM

Cover ArtA series of unfortunate events: The bad beginning
You must listen to the CD book version. Tim Curry is the greatest.   posted Feb 21, 2007 at 11:19AM

Cover ArtMarley & Me: Life and Love with the World’s Worst Dog
by Grogan, John
Being a self-professed dog disliker, I put off reading Marley and Me until I bought it for my sister. Warning: don't be around anyone who makes fun of you when you cry for the last two chapters. What a fantastic book! What a NAUGHTY dog!!   posted May 31, 2006 at 10:49AM

Cover ArtBody bags
by Christopher Golden
I enjoy this series. It's a shame Hennepin County doesn't have the entire series.   posted May 19, 2006 at 2:08PM
