Seinlanguage by Jerry Seinfeld

I grew up watching Seinfeld as a family. On the floor, in my mother's bedroom. All five of us would fill our dinner plates and then find a place to watch Seinfeld. It was a fantastic family ritual and I truly believe it bonded our family with laughter. I still quote the show and love watching the reruns every so often. I think Jerry Seinfeld is a brilliant comedian....and unfortunately, he should have kept this material verbal. I can imagine hearing Jerry speak everything in this book, but it is disjointed; divided by category. Perhaps if it was arranged in a way it would flow better, it would have been a better read. I would have preferred spend the time watching one of those reruns instead of reading this book. Bummer.

The Aladdin Factor by Jack Canfield

This book is not about "wishes". This book is about making your own reality. After reading this book, I have found a new confidence and optimism that was lacking in my life previously. I had heard of Jack Canfield from Chicken Soup For The Soul but didn't really think anything of it. I read this book but did not remember the authors until I watched The Secret and remembered Jack Canfield. I read this book again and felt even better than when I read it the first time! I think it might be time for me to read it again....

The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate by Gary Chapman
The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate

This book is fantastic! It has not only helped me in romantic relationships, but also in friendships and coworker relations. I recommend this book to anyone who has ever left a relationship thinking, "What went wrong??" Knowing yourself is just as important as recognizing traits in others, when it comes to interacting with people. As much as the title may imply 5 exact categories, the point really is about discovering those grey areas and being able to recognize them. I cannot sign off without saying, I am a 30-something female and my mother and step-father (in their 60's-70's) also found this book incredibly helpful!! Enjoy!!

What Came Before He Shot Her by Elizabeth George
What Came Before He Shot Her

This book gets you from the first page. A thrilling and very real account of fiction. I found myself tortured to have to stop reading and was enthralled by the drama and tragedy of this family of three children. While my life struggles pale in comparison, I found myself empathizing with characters I would never see eye to eye with in the outside world. That being said; while I love a good cliffhanger, Ms. George left me hanging in a way I did not appreciate. When I realized it was the last page, I was frustrated and angered. A warning to any and all who like to know just a bit of an ending...it does not come with this novel.

God's Brothel: The Extortion of Sex for Salvation in Contemporary Mormon and Christian Fundamentalist Polygamy and the Stories of 18 by Andrea Moore Emmett

Not the best read I have ever had, but still an education in an American sub-culture that many are not aware of. Very interesting although I found it to be a bit redundant after a few chapters. I'm glad I read it and may recommend it, depending on the person, but I probably will not read it again.
