  • The Middle Place

    In a coming-of-age memoir about a woman who loved being a girl and what made her finally grow up, Kelly Corrigan brilliantly explores the "middle place" between childhood and adulthood and how one woman made the leap to the other side.

    Overall

    This was so real for me. Last year my fiance was diagnosed with throat cancer. It's such shock to hear the words that someone you love so much is sick and has to go through surgery hoping to hear it's non-invasive but to hear it is invasive and then going through treatments and even now a year later still going to regular check-ups and holding your breath each time. I can't imagine having cancer and having a loved one with cancer. I also grew up in Malvern, PA in the 1970's so I knew exactly the areas she was referring to and got a real chuckle when she mentioned the King of Prussia Mall and Guess Jeans! This book has a lot of emotion I thought it was very well done and hope to hear more from Kelly Corrigan in the future!

    Firefly Lane is the poignant, powerful story of two women and the friendship that becomes the mainstay of their lives. For 30 years, Tully and Kate buoy each other through life, weathering the storms of friendship: jealousy, anger, hurt, resentment. They think they've survived it all, until a single act of betrayal tears them apart...and puts their courage and friendship to the ultimate test.

    Overall

    This is the second of Kristin Hannah's book I've listened to on audio. I really enjoyed these characters and the book was never dull, I was shocked at how it ended, I had no clue. I really am starting to enjoy this author and have just downloaded another selection!

    The Grey sisters had only each other when their mother died years ago. Their father provided for them physically on Water's Edge, the ranch that had been in their family for three generations, each of them however, longed for their father's love.

    Brenda says: "Well written, POORLY narrated... :("
    "A little long but good"
    Overall

    This was a little long and predictable but it was an enjoyable story and I loved following the lives of the individual sisters. Definitely a good lesson here when you see how the lives of the three sisters changes over the years. Well worth the time spent listening!

    A kind, bookish only child born in the 1940s, Alice learned the virtues of politeness early on from her stolid parents and small Wisconsin hometown. But a tragic accident when she was 17 shattered her identity and made her understand the fragility of life and the tenuousness of luck.

    Overall

    This was a really good book. To hear one's life from being a child to a grownup made me reflect on my life and listening to her describe the ups and downs of love, marriage, I think anyone could relate. I enjoyed it.

  • Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World

    Dewey is the heartwarming story of Dewey Readmore Books, the beloved library cat of Spencer, Iowa, as told by his owner and companion of 19 years, Vicki Myron, the librarian who found him on a frigid January morning when he was abandoned as a kitten in the book drop slot. It is also the story of a remarkable small town, which burned down at the beginning of the Depression, only to rebuild itself again.

    Mary says: "Great read!!"
    "Loved it!"
    Overall

    We have nine cats all with unique and interesting personalities which is why we love cats and listening to the wonderful story of Dewey was heartwarming. He was indeed a special boy and was loved for who he was, a great story.

    When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didn't have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave - "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" - wasn't about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because "time is all you have... and you may find one day that you have less than you think").

    K. Giavelli says: "How to Live"
    "Lots of Great Stuff Here!"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed "The Last Lecture". It was hard to remember that Randy Pausch was living with a terminal disease, such an upbeat and positive person. How lucky are we to share parts of his life through his book.
