  • A Girl Named Zippy: Growing Up Small in Mooreland, Indiana

    When Haven Kimmel was born in 1965, Mooreland, Indiana, was a sleepy little hamlet of 300 people. Nicknamed "Zippy" for the way she would bolt around the house, this small girl was possessed of big eyes and even bigger ears. In this witty and lovingly told memoir, Kimmel takes readers back to a time when small-town America was caught in the amber of the innocent postwar period - people helped their neighbors, went to church on Sunday, and kept barnyard animals in their backyards.

    "Wonderful!"
    Overall

    A fascinating look at family. Funny too.

    If you could sum up Rogue in Porcelain in three words, what would they be?

    Very light read.


    Would you recommend Rogue in Porcelain to your friends? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the book because I enjoy the series. Someone picking up this book first in the series probably would not return to the series.

    This urban tour of New York City's Lower East Side brings you to the intimate and intriguing spots of the neighborhood that no tourist atop a double-decker bus would ever see. For curious New Yorkers and bold visitors alike, this is the best way to really feel, know, and understand the Lower East Side. Guided by a local personality, packed full of interviews, insights, recollections, and cinematic sound effects, Soundwalk Lower East Side, New York is a living documentary.

    Harry says: "R-Rated & Bohemian in character"
    "You have to be there."
    Overall

    This isn't interesting if you aren't actually taking the walking tour.

    Elizabeth is an ambivalent academic living in New York City with Brett and their young son, Harry. Everyone wants Elizabeth to marry Brett, including Brett, but whenever marriage comes up, the intended bride quickly changes the subject. Then Elizabeth publishes a paper on Madame Bovary that catches the eye of an impetuous movie producer, and her life turns upside down...

    Virginia says: "Disappointing"
    "Not What I Expected"
    Overall

    I thought this book would be much more entertaining than it is. An awful lot of this book is concerned with cancer. Not my idea of a lot of fun.

    Every time Bill Bryson walks out the door, memorable travel literature threatens to break out. His previous excursion on the Appalachian Trail resulted in the best seller A Walk in the Woods. Now, we follow him "Down Under" to Australia with this delectably funny, fact-filled, and adventurous performance that combines humor, wonder, and unflagging curiosity. More from Bill Bryson.

    Larry says: "Laugh out loud funny"
    "Great!"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book a lot. It isn't as laugh out loud funny as "A Walk in the Woods", but amusing and informative. The author's narration is excellent.

    Set against the glorious backdrops of Rome, Florence, and Genoa, and Naples, peopled with historical characters and filled with the details of the life of a 17th-century painter, The Passion of Artemisia is the story of Gentileschi's struggle to find love, forgiveness, and wholeness through her art.

    L. Worthington says: "Not exactly a biography"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I was expecting a serious biography of Artemisia, but this book is a lightweight romance.
