    This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides - or are chosen.

    I don't really know what I was thinking all of these years, but I never knew what this book was about. I thought I did... clearly I didn't. I recommend it. It's not "supernatural" in the sense of what I orginally thought. It's a basic battle of good and evil really. I liked it.

    In this touching work, four women—all writers—come together after a painful loss. Recently deceased Gabby Marshall leaves behind a letter asking her friends to complete her unfinished manuscript. Taking vacations from their own lives, the ladies settle at Gabby’s home and get to work.

    Story

    The book was quite lovely. It was inspirational and reflective. Not a must read, but a "worth the read." However, the narration was awful. If she would have just stuck to one or two characters that would have been great, but the way she tried to do so many different characters was just too much. She failed miserably. Again, the book is a good "chick book" though. :-) I would recommend it. Just don't expect much from the narrator.

    It's a hot, hot night. Too hot to be making love, unless your romance is young, like Sherry's and Duane's. It's their first time, and the anticipation is killing. There's just one problem: they have no condoms. Duane goes out to get some, but then Sherry hears what sounds like a gunshot.

    This book was completely demented and messed up. I kept waiting for it to go to a better place. It was on the verge of taking it to the next level, but it never did. It was as if the author is a pervert with some really demented ideas about sex. It creeped me out. Not in a "the book was eerie" kind of a way, but in a "I hope I never meet the author on a deserted road" kind of a way. Ewww! I feel like I need a shower.

    For three months, the police find no clues in the stabbing death of Hope Devane, the author of a pop-psychology best-seller. So they turn to Dr. Alex Delaware to study the case for insights that might point to a killer. As Alex unlocks the private compartments of Hope's life, the murder looks calculated and vengeful. A study of her childhood reveals that she kept secrets from everyone. It also helps Alex set a trap for the killer.

    Out of all of the Alex Delaware books, this is probably my least favorite. It was very unrealistic and I never could grasp that this could possibly be a real murder investigation.

    I enjoyed this book. It was better than I expected, but less than what I hoped for. It's worth the read. It's somewhere between light and thoughtful. I recommend it, but it won't rock your socks off.

    Jack Torrance's new job at the Overlook Hotel is the perfect chance for a fresh start. As the off-season caretaker at the atmospheric old hotel, he'll have plenty of time to spend reconnecting with his family and working on his writing. But as the harsh winter weather sets in, the idyllic location feels ever more remote...and more sinister. And the only one to notice the strange and terrible forces gathering around the Overlook is Danny Torrance, a uniquely gifted five-year-old.

    Set over the course of one school year, in 1986, this is the story of two star-crossed misfits - smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love - and just how hard it pulled you under.

    This story was young for me, but I still enjoyed it immensely. It pays homage to the idea that what happens to you as a teenager changes you, but it doesn't define you. I would have loved to have read a book like this when I was a kid.

    91 year-old Ira Levinson is kept concious after a car wreck by visions of his late wife, Ruth, who recounts stories of their lifetime together. A few miles away, at a local rodeo, Sophia Danko, a senior at Wake Forest, meets a young cowboy named Luke. Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.

    Story

    I feel bad saying it's "okay" and not great, but it's true. The narration was very good, but it's like the author put two books together and then made the most obvioius choice at the end to merge the two stories together. It's almost as if the author only had a final chapter to do it. It was VERY predictable. I llistened to the whole thing and I have no regrets, but I was expecting more and the book didn't deliver.

    Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is Chicago's only openly practicing wizard. He is also dead broke. His vast knowledge and magical skills are unfortunately matched by his talent for making powerful enemies and alienating friends. With little more than his integrity left, he accepts an offer of work from Lt. Karin Murphy of Chicago's Special Investigations Unit. He wants to redeem himself in Murphy's eyes and make enough money to quiet his rumbling stomach.

    Today is Leonard Peacock's birthday. It is also the day he hides a gun in his backpack. Because today is the day he will kill his former best friend, and then himself, with his grandfather's P-38 pistol. But first he must say good-bye to the four people who matter most to him: his Humphrey Bogart - obsessed next-door neighbor, Walt; his classmate Baback, a violin virtuoso; Lauren, the Christian homeschooler he has a crush on; and Herr Silverman, who teaches the high school's class on the Holocaust.

    I think this book should be mandatory reading for ALL high school students. I was Leonard Peacock. If I read this book back when I was in school giong through all of the nonsense that kids go through this book could have saved me. I loved loved loved this book. It's an excellent read for bully's and the kids that suffer from being bullied alike. I highly recommend this book. It's mostly just an incredibly inspiring story of never giving up hope, because things really do get better.
