A Gate at the Stairs by Lorrie Moore
A Gate at the Stairs

Anita, September 28, 2010

While I loved the writing and by no means am a person needing concrete, tied in pretty bow endings I was let down by this story. Loose ends and plot lines that, while intriguing, go nowhere.
I spent big bucks to buy in hdbk based on fantastic reviews. Meh... C+

Feed by M. T. Anderson

I thought this book was well written and thought provoking. Today I was reading in The Atlantic, Ju/Ag '08 (Is Google Making Us Stupid?) that the guys who founded Google speak of "creating an artificial intelligence, a HAL-like machine that might be connected directly to our brains." M.T. Anderson was prescient.
btw I'm a school librarian, not a teen, and think adults would find this book interesting too.
You might like Anderson's Pox Party series for more original storytelling.

Yoga: The Path to Holistic Health (Yoga for Living) by B K S Iyengar
Yoga: The Path to Holistic Health (Yoga for Living)

Anita, June 22, 2007

As a librarian and a certified yoga teacher books and yoga figure large in my life. I have many, many yoga books, but hands down Yoga: The Path to Holistic Health is the one I use most. (In fact it remains on the floor beside my mat.)
Highly recommend this title for serious students, teachers seeking solutions for their own or student's ailments or just a great book full of practice sequences.
