Ekeland County: A Novel in Stories by Wendell J. Shank
Ekeland County: A Novel in Stories

Jennifer Moore, February 12, 2008

What a surprising novel! Although it's a collection of short stories, all of the stories revolve around the same characters in a fictional small town in the hills of Virginia, so they weave together to create a definite feeling of a place. The stories are presented from the perspective of different characters, so they are not redundant or irrelevant to one another. A great read!

The Idiot Girls' Action Adventure Club by Laurie Notaro
The Idiot Girls' Action Adventure Club

Jennifer Moore, August 12, 2007

Outrageously funny. If you ride public transit every day (as I do), be prepared to embarrass yourself in Idiot-Girl style, because you'll be rolling off of your bus-seat every 10 minutes, overcome with side-splitting guffaws. Really. You'll get looks.

Fluke: Or, I Know Why the Winged Whale Sings by Christopher Moore
Fluke: Or, I Know Why the Winged Whale Sings

Jennifer Moore, August 12, 2007

"Fluke" is a story that takes readers down a deceptively straightforward path, only to plunge them headlong over a cliff into wacky, whale-infested waters. It gets wierder with every page, but is irresistably funny and smart.

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life by Barbara Kingsolver and Camille Kingsolver and Steven L. Hopp
Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life

Jennifer Moore, August 5, 2007

I literally finished reading this book 10 minutes ago, and immediately visited the book's website to learn more about the subject of the book: eating locally. Every human being on the planet should read this book! Although most of the information was not new - others have spent many de-motivating chapters exclaiming the evils of our industrialized food system - this book also presents options and hope to the reader. Instead of feeling angry and helpless at the end, I felt inspired and well-equipped to make a life-change for the environment, my community, and my body. Contributions from various members of the family made the book highly accessible and enjoyable. It is impossible to put aside. Even for Harry Potter.
