    In What Really Happened, Rielle Hunter offers an extremely personal account of her relationship with John Edwards: the facts of how they actually met; how their accidental love started and escalated; what it was like to fall in love with a married man who decided to run for president; the surprise of becoming pregnant during the campaign; how the affair became public; the extensive coverup, and finally, what happened in the years after Edwards publicly admitted to being the father of their daughter, Frances Quinn.

    What did you love best about What Really Happened?

    I loved hearing this from Rielle's perspective. This whole drama was not her fault, she was simply looking for love (like everyone), I do believe they love each other very much.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of What Really Happened?

    A memorable moment would be the description of the massive fights between Elizabeth and John (I would be running away also if I were him)


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Their initial attraction to each other.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All of it.


    Any additional comments?

  • Stuff: Compulsive Hoarding and the Meaning of Things

    What possesses someone to save every scrap of paper thats ever come into his home? What compulsions drive a woman like Irene, whose hoarding cost her her marriage? Or Ralph, whose imagined uses for castoff items like leaky old buckets almost lost him his house?

    JoAnn Marcon says: "Utterly fascinating"

    I find psychological aspects of hoarding interesting and allows readers to understand it from an academic perspective. Super educational and I very much enjoyed the book. Resources for assistance identified at end of book.

    Story
    (31)

    In 1948, after surviving World War II by escaping Nazi-occupied France for refugee camps in Switzerland, the author's grandparents, Anna and Armand, bought an old stone house in a remote, picturesque village in the South of France. Five years later, Anna packed her bags and walked out on Armand, taking the typewriter and their children. Aside from one brief encounter, the two never saw or spoke to each other again, never remarried, and never revealed what had divided them forever.

    This documents a past we should never ever forget and Miranda does an excellent job making readers feel like they are right there with her through every conversation she has with her grandparents. Nicely written and brilliantly narrated.

  • AWOL on the Appalachian Trail

    In 2003, software engineer David Miller left his job, family, and friends to hike 2,172 miles of the Appalachian Trail. AWOL on the Appalachian Trail is Miller’s account of this thru-hike from Georgia to Maine. Listeners are treated to rich descriptions of the Appalachian Mountains, the isolation and reverie, the inspiration that fueled his quest, and the rewards of taking a less conventional path through life. While this book abounds with introspection and perseverance, it also provides useful passages about hiking gear and planning.

    Phillip says: "Most Informative Book on the AT"
    "Relaxing and Inspirational"
    Overall

    I found this book to be relaxing and inspirational and it makes me want to do the same thing! I have friends who have hiked this trail as through hikers and it was the first time I heard about these trail names, and the AT community. I felt like the author was like my friends, down to earth, honest about his concerns as well as his appreciations, and entertaining to listen to.

  • Depressive Illness: The Curse of the Strong

    If you suffer from depression you are not alone – it affects 15.5 million in the US, and more than 3 million in the UK – and, you are much stronger than you think. This best-selling book, written by a leading consultant psychiatrist, explains that people with depression do battle with pressures and stresses that other people would run away from, until their bodies can take no more. In this book, depression is placed authoritatively as a physical illness, from which recovery is possible.

    Ronald Albury says: "Just what I needed"
    "Interesting and educational"
    Overall

    I like the book overall because it describes what the victims of the illness can do to help themselves.
    The chapters describing all the different meds kind of bored me even though i agree with the need for them.
    Overall, excellent book.
