The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
The Girl on the Train

Paula Weisberger, February 9, 2015

If Gone Girl was last summer's thriller then The Girl on the Train fits the bill for a snowy winter thriller. Similar to Gone Girl, the story is told with three alternating narrators, and we don't really know who is reliable or believable. After all, if you're a witness to a crime simply because you've observed something from the window of your commuter train, can your eye be trusted? A quick read and it was fun to figure out the mystery.

Lonely Planet Signspotting 2: More Absurd and Amusing by Doug Lansky
Lonely Planet Signspotting 2: More Absurd and Amusing

Paula Weisberger, September 13, 2011

Combine travel, languages and a sense of humor, and you have Doug Lansky's book "Signspotting 2"! I recently bought this book for my sister and cracked up out loud while reading it at the store. Many times I wondered how the signs could even be real! Maybe they were taken out of context or a victim of literal translation, but these signs will make you laugh! Now I just need to get the next ones in the series . . .

Powell's Oregon Sticker (Red) by Powell's Books
Powell's Oregon Sticker (Red)

Paula Weisberger, September 13, 2011

As a displaced Portlandian now living in Maine, I treasure my yearly visits to Powell's -- still my all time favorite book store! I have several Powell's stickers on my laptop, my laptop bag and even on my classroom bulletin boards. My brown grocery bag, numerous t-shirts, a mug, etc. all sport the familiar moniker. All my swag makes me feel closer to my home state!

The Red Garden by Alice Hoffman
The Red Garden

Paula Weisberger, September 2, 2011

For some reason, I had never read Alice Hoffman. The Red Garden interweaves a different story in each chapter, illustrating the transformation in a little Massachusetts town from primitive settlement to contemporary community challenged with feminist and counterculture ideals. I loved the recurring motifs of bears, bees, the color red, gardens, red hair, social misfits, etc. -- all adding to a wonderful example of magical realism. Highly recommended.
