  • Fat Is the New 30: The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Coping with (the Crappy Parts of) Life

    The Sweet Potato Queens are back and bawdier than ever in Southern belle extraordinaire Jill Conner Browne’s ninth edition of the hysterical series. Having experienced pretty much ALL of the crappy parts of life, Browne feels it is her duty to render whatever assistance she can to her fellow sufferers - and she does so in her own inimitable fashion.

    Her father taught her there are very few situations in life that we really and truly cannot change, and it is up to us to figure out how to either make fun OUT of them - or make fun OF them.

    What made the experience of listening to Fat Is the New 30 the most enjoyable?

    Hearing Jill read her own work. Her tales are of her life and experiences, this just adds to the satisfaction she would give that much of herself to her listeners. Even through the rough part about her mother.


    What other book might you compare Fat Is the New 30 to and why?

    Any of her other works or Olivia deBelle Byrd's, "Miss Hildreth Worn Brown"


    Which character – as performed by Jill Conner Browne – was your favorite?

    Loved the story about the gator hunt! That was hysterical!


    What did you learn from Fat Is the New 30 that you would use in your daily life?

    I learned if my own writing career should ever take off in a way that Jill's has then I might truly have to think long and hard about how to do a book tour: plane or bus.


    Any additional comments?

    In the book Jill talks of "Big Butter Jesus" she saw while doing a bus book tour. Just as she said, the original singer and his video is on Youtube BUT I was shocked to see "Jesus" had been struck by lightening. Guess Heywood's line in the song about God not liking idols built was true.

  • Steve Jobs

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It is extremely lengthy and if you are driving from New York to San Fransico then maybe.


    What could Walter Isaacson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I'm sure the techies in the world enjoyed listening to every bit of hardware and software jargon, the making of it and getting it to run but for those of us less inclined it got a little dry.


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

    He did a fine job getting us through it.


    Do you think Steve Jobs needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. From what I learned of Jobs through this story I believe Jobs should've reconsidered asking this to be done in the first place. Too ecentric, could be called a thief at times and not a nice man at all.


    Any additional comments?

    Jobs did make a lot of money stating all along the way, "it's not about the money" but nonetheless, he made it. Hopefully, he did more charity work than was mentioned because actually, none was mentioned.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    What made the experience of listening to The Hunger Games the most enjoyable?

    The storyline was incredible! Through every scene you could close your eyes and be transported to wherever the story was happening. District 12, at the Capital, the arena.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Katness: I found she was captivating and a survivor even before the Reaping.


    What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

    The narrator did a wonderful job with the distinction between the characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I pulled for all the underdogs. My heart rate increased with their triumphs and my stomach sank at their defeats.


    Any additional comments?

    I think I'm the last person I know to have 'read' this book and can't wait to start the next in the series. The movie has already been released and I refused to watch it until I'd read the book. Better late than never!
