Finders Keepers: A Tale of Archaeological Plunder and Obsession by Craig Childs
Finders Keepers: A Tale of Archaeological Plunder and Obsession

Marjorie Woodruff, January 3, 2011

A fascinating read, but depressing as well. Having found "treasures" in the backcountry which vanish when someone feels they deserve them more than the rest of us, I understand the frustration Childs writes about when some of his treasures go missing. This book kept me running to the computer to look reference items mentioned which had been violated or, sometimes, preserved. Too bad all wilderness explorers don't have Childs' maturity towards things which the ancients left behind.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance -- Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem! by Seth Grahame-Smith and Jane Austen
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance -- Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!

A friend gave me this book, and I tried to give it back, saying it was in insult to one of my favorite authors. Then I started to read it and thought: Darn, this is really funny. I'm not sure how it would be for someone who has not read Jane Austin, but I had a lot of fun with it.

Desert Lost (Lena Jones Mysteries)

Polygamy is alive and well in Arizona. A fast-moving mystery set in Scottsdale dealing with the child abuse, welfare fraud, and male child abandonment that is rampant within the polygamous community.

On a par with Into Thin Air. Good read and fascinating background on climbing Everest. I kept reading sections out loud to my husband.

Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
Inkheart

Marjorie Woodruff, January 1, 2010

This three-book series: Inheart, Inkspell, and Inkdeath is excellent. If you are going through Harry Potter withdrawal, you can get a fix with this series.
