Perish Twice by Robert B Parker
Perish Twice

Cindy, July 11, 2007

If you like Sue Grafton's wise-cracking detective Kinsey Milhone, meet Robert B. Parker's counterpart, Sunny Randall. Written in Parker's usual economy of words and sprinkling of dry humor, this is an enjoyable, quick-read mystery.

Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton

Cindy, July 9, 2007

The prose is lush and descriptive in this tragedy of entrapment and unrequited love. If you have never read or don't usually read the classics, make this an exception. A quick read, it is a stirring story and refreshing in its depiction of restraint in personal relationships not often seen in our times.

Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog by John Grogan
Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog

Cindy, July 9, 2007

Dog lover or not, you will be charmed by this book, which covers all the emotions from joy to sorrow, but mostly disbelief: how could a family actually endure all the antics of that dog? I found the writing to be delightful and often funny, after all, the author is a columnist by profession. A quick, entertaining read.

O Come Ye Back to Ireland: Our First Year in County Clare by Niall Williams
O Come Ye Back to Ireland: Our First Year in County Clare

Cindy, June 17, 2007

Even if you have never been lucky enough to visit Ireland, this memoir will bring you delight, amazement, even heartache. Totally charming, this tale of leaving New York City for a rural area of County Clare is a well-written quick read that never disappoints.

Stupid Sock Creatures: Making Quirky, Lovable Figures from Cast-Off Socks by John Murphy
Stupid Sock Creatures: Making Quirky, Lovable Figures from Cast-Off Socks

Cindy, May 9, 2007

Who doesn't have single socks? John Murphy shows you how to transform them into "quirky, lovable figures" with detailed directions, hints and drawings, plus pictures of his own weird little critters. Even if you never stitch a single one, it is a fun book to browse, with many witty remarks, even bios of the goofy sock creatures and a short color cartoon.
