    Through an intriguing story of parents struggling with their troubled children and with their own personal problems, The Anatomy of Peace shows how to get past the preconceived ideas and self-justifying reactions that keep us from seeing the world clearly and dealing with it effectively.

    Any additional comments?

    This book is fantastic! I got so much out of it! I plan on listening to it again and am considering buying the paperback edition so I can make notes. I am asking several family members to take a look at it and I have talked to my therapist about it. I really feel more Peaceful, since starting to work the ideas from this book.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, too long. It was well worth the time to go back to it. I never felt that I was lost when I had to stop or restart it.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a really good book. It kept my attention and I didn't feel like it was "just like all the other romance novels". I enjoyed listening to it and can't remember ever feeling like it was running on too long, it is an 11 hour book! It was enjoyable and I would recommend it. I am planning on listening to the others in the series soon.

    She's 33, unmarried, and stuffed into a Bubble-Yum-pink bridesmaid dress. And the whole town wants to fix her up with anyone with a dental plan.... Who's going to rescue Sadie Hollowell now? Everyone in Lovett, Texas, knows Sadie has always been a "notional" kind of gal. She got a notion to leave town ASAP and never visit her daddy (bless his heart) again. Now she's back and got the notion to invite a good-looking, hard-muscled, total stranger to her cousin's wedding.

    Would you recommend Rescue Me to your friends? Why or why not?

    It was a good book. Typical love story and ended well. If you go into it knowing it's a book you can start and stop and not lose your place while your multi-tasking books, then you won't be dissapointed. I liked it, just wouldn't call it a favorite.

    The season of gift-giving is here, and this year we've got something special for our members: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Yuletide whodunit "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle". In this holiday-themed short story, Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick, Dr. Watson, follow the trail of a lost hat and a Christmas goose through the streets of London and into a rapidly expanding mystery.

    What does Alan Cumming bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The characters were brought out very vividly with his performance. Loved the narration.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. And easy to do. It's very short.

  • Men Are Like Waffles Women Are Like Spaghetti: Understanding and Delighting in Your Differences

    Women are like spaghetti, because their thought process runs on and on in an interconnecting web, and men are like waffles because they compartmentalize and "sit" in sometimes blank boxes, just to relax.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not the first book I'd recommend for understanding men and/or women.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I only went about half way through the book. Once they started giving dating tips, they lost me. I really enjoyed the beginning and the examples of how men and women are different. There were some great stories and analogies.But it seems when they were done explaining, they were done... I, personally, don't need the marriage dating advice (at least not now), I was needing the 'how can we understand our differences and get past the disagreements about our differences'.


    What didn’t you like about Bill Farrel and Pam Farrel ’s performance?

    I really did not enjoy them as narrators.


    Do you think Men Are Like Waffles Women Are Like Spaghetti needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I think they need to stick with the premise of what the differences are and how we can manage them in everyday life. And add how the differences of parenting a waffle or spaghetti would be different for the opposite gender parent. That would have been more helpful to me than dating tips!

  • Confessions of a Shopaholic

    Sophie Kinsella's debut is a romp through the perils of shopping and spending, spending, spending! Becky can't resist a sale, and she's only a little overdrawn on her VISA. Readers will laugh aloud at Becky's retail adventures as she finds new and creative ways to relieve her increasingly credit card debt. Emily Gray's narration bounces along with Becky and her buying whims, while delivering a humorous account of what happens when credit goes bad.

    Evelyn says: "Not so much!"
    "Great Listen"
    Overall

    Fun and witty, definately worth the time!

    I have set aside this book for another day when I don't have anything else available. It just seems to drag.
