Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk
Invisible Monsters

Kristina Mageau, August 30, 2012

I was thoroughly engaged while reading this book, and at times it was almost too dark and gross for me. There is the possibility to be offended, although it is more of an intense experience of fun and mystery than anything else.

Fugitives and Refugees: A Walk in Portland, Oregon by Chuck Palahniuk
Fugitives and Refugees: A Walk in Portland, Oregon

Kristina Mageau, August 30, 2012

A fun and obscure view of Portland. Recommended for those who want to explore Portland in a different way, or for those who are just curious about what is on the unbeaten path.

The Grapes of Wrath (Penguin Classics) by John Steinbeck
The Grapes of Wrath (Penguin Classics)

Kristina Mageau, August 30, 2012

Pretty well written, Steinbeck shares an interesting tale with an intensely historical perspective. The intensity comes from the dark time in history, filled with cultural and economic depth. There are dull points, where the descriptions are more wordy than necessary unless the reader truly cannot get enough of that particular point in time.

Cognitive Surplus: How Technology Makes Consumers Into Collaborators by Clay Shirky
Cognitive Surplus: How Technology Makes Consumers Into Collaborators

Kristina Mageau, August 30, 2012

Most excellent. This book clearly guides the reader through the ins and outs of communication throughout history, including highlights of significant innovations and cultural implications. The communications examples open up the reader to how to excel and engage individuals and groups in the real world in a fun and fantastic way.

Outrageous acts and everyday rebellions by Gloria Steinem

Kristina Mageau, August 19, 2012

Gloria Steinem led the good fight through many struggles for feminism and equality. This book shares an inside look at what each story and struggle looked like, with attention to detail regarding the timing.
