The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
The Elegance of the Hedgehog

3Kcats, December 30, 2011

I'm only on page 70 but am enjoying this book. It's more about the language and words than the story for me so far.
I have developed a vivid picture of the characters in my mind.
The kid is perspective and funny.
I can't wait to see where the story goes.

The Colony: The Harrowing True Story of the Exiles of Molokai by John Tayman
The Colony: The Harrowing True Story of the Exiles of Molokai

I've been on a Hawaii book kick since getting back in February. This is a fascinating, well-researched, thought provoking and sad book. It is atrocious what those in power did to those that had or were perceived to have leprosy. What humans will do to one another in amazing. I recommend this book.

Unfamiliar Fishes by Sarah Vowell

I really enjoyed this book. We love Hawaii and I'm always interested in learning more about Hawaii and the culture. This book was packed full of information and written in a very readable style. You won't think of Hawaii the same after reading this. It will leave you with a new understanding and appreciation for the culture (at least it did for me).

It Gets Better: Coming Out, Overcoming Bullying, and Creating a Life Worth Living by Dan Savage and Terry Miller
It Gets Better: Coming Out, Overcoming Bullying, and Creating a Life Worth Living

3Kcats, May 29, 2011

I knew that the It Gets Better Project had a powerful mesage, but reading the book was more than I expected. It wasn't the authors whose names I knew that had the strongest, most powerful message, but those regular everyday folks whose stories resonanted and stayed with me. I highly recommend this book.
