Birds in Your Backyard
Birds in Your Backyard

Gold Gato, September 29, 2014

This book helped me develop a garden sanctuary for the birdies. Now there are several hummer feeders, a dozen seed dispensers, plenty of water outlets, and a squirrel vs. bird plot that can look like West Side Story at times. Within this book is a bunch of helpful info, even for folks who do not have green thumbs. There's even a how-to section on cleaning feeders and creating hiding places for birds who are afraid of hawks (the Tudors of the bird family). Really, this volume is a terrific place to start if you want to begin your own world of bird adventures.

Total Juicing by Elaine La Lanne
Total Juicing

Gold Gato, September 27, 2014

As a cancer survivor, I always love to read about the foods I should have been eating/drinking before I actually got the cancer. This book falls into that category. The first part of the book discusses why we should juice (daily) and why we should look after our health (ummm, cancer). It all makes sense, and then we get to the juice combinations, some of which I tried and were fairly tasty.

Good book, learned a lot without it being preachy.

Second World War #0006: Triumph and Tragedy by Winston S Churchill
Second World War #0006: Triumph and Tragedy

Gold Gato, September 27, 2014

The last volume in Winston Churchill's magnificent World War II collection is full of bitterness and fatigue and triumph. It begins with D-Day and ends with Churchill's loss of office. The Great Lion shows true value in understanding the true intentions of Stalin and his Iron Curtain, just as he is mystified by the continued innocence of the Yanks. When writing of battles, in particular the island-by-island victories of the Americans in the Pacific theatre, Mr. Churchill is brilliant. The appendix is magnificent, full of ruminations on women, Ireland, and the coming hard years for Great Britain. A worthy addition to any reader's library.

Antelope, Bison, Cougar by Steven P. Medley
Antelope, Bison, Cougar

Gold Gato, September 24, 2014

I really enjoyed this wonderfully illustrated book of wildlife and the National Parks they inhabit. The reader gets to learn about the uniqueness of each animal, the quirkiness of the Parks, and why we should respect both. Excellent for children who have to learn their A-B-C...just wish this was around when I was a wee one.

That's Amore: A Son Remembers Dean Martin by Ricci Martin
That's Amore: A Son Remembers Dean Martin

Gold Gato, September 14, 2014

Dean Martin gets remembered by his youngest son, Ricci, who seems to have published this book in response to the one by his sister. The truth is probably somewhere between the two siblings' recollections, but that's alright, not trying to build rockets here.

The Deanster seemed to be a busy father, who spent much of his time working (so his little ones wouldn't have to later on in life). Ricci Martin presents stories and remembrances of his father and other family members in a fairly decent light. It's a lightweight read for bored evenings or summer pool days. Thankfully, it never gets snarky.

Book Season = Summer (sway)
