    Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey tells the story behind Highclere Castle, the real-life inspiration and setting for Julian Fellowes's Emmy Award-winning PBS series, and the life of one of its most famous inhabitants: Lady Almina, the fifth Countess of Carnarvon. Drawing on a rich store of materials from the archives of Highclere Castle, including diaries, letters, and photographs, the current Lady Carnarvon has written a transporting story of this fabled home on the brink of war.

    Story

    This book not only told the story of the castle, those who lived there but also insight into some of the rules that ran that era.

    Kevin Mitnick was the most elusive computer break-in artist in history. He accessed computers and networks at the world’s biggest companies—and however fast the authorities were, Mitnick was faster, sprinting through phone switches, computer systems, and cellular networks. He spent years skipping through cyberspace, always three steps ahead and labeled unstoppable.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this story, but at times I felt frustrated at how the author tried to "social engineer" me the reader. He wants you on his side, but there were times that I had to stand back and think....but of course you are going to jail! Overall, fascinating read and I'm glad he's found a place to help.

    Though they have the vote and the Pill and haven't been burned as witches since 1727, life isn't exactly a stroll down the catwalk for modern women. They are beset by uncertainties and questions: Why are they supposed to get Brazilians? Why do bras hurt? Why the incessant talk about babies? And do men secretly hate them? Caitlin Moran interweaves provocative observations on women's lives with laugh-out-loud funny scenes from her own, from adolescence to her development as a writer, wife, and mother.

    L. Calder says: "Hysterical manual for the 21st century woman"
    "Funny and thought-provoking"

    Story

    While the memoir portion of the book was hysterical, heartbreaking and a truly enjoyable read, it was the way she wove in her views on feminism in the modern world which had me looking both inwards and outwards. Her no-nonsense approach to what women deal with and that we cannot choose to sit on the sidelines. That it is our choice to step into our own lives and live it. A great read for any woman and if the men can get through the squeamish bits I think they'd learn a great deal also. Way to go Cailin!

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Fifty Shades of Grey?

    I had doubts about this since it is fan fiction for a series I couldn't take seriously. However, the topic had a more adult feel and I was coerced into reading.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Becca Battoe?

    No.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    It was uninteresting, juvenile and horribly written.
