When I received this book in the mail, my 12 year old child read it and then handed it back to me and said that it was just an advertisement. Then I read it and I had to agree. It is about the 529 Savings Plan. As a parent of a senior in high school, the book did have useful information for my child and I to look at as we contemplates life after high school. The reason for the 3 stars is that I really dislike when books are put out as informative but end up being an advertisement.

This book did give me enough information about the 529 plan that I plan on researching it more. I also plan on giving this book to my child's high school counselor so that he can have it available for other parents.

50 Ribbon Rosettes & Bows to Make: For Perfectly Wrapped Gifts, Gorgeous Hair Clips, Beautiful Corsages, and Decorative Fun! by Deanna D. Mccool
50 Ribbon Rosettes & Bows to Make: For Perfectly Wrapped Gifts, Gorgeous Hair Clips, Beautiful Corsages, and Decorative Fun!

Visually, "50 Ribbon Rosettes..." is very eye catching! It has directions from hair clips, to head bands, to bows for presents. Each project has a picture to accompany it and really good instructions. This isn't just for little girls, there are projects for women (I'm partial to the headbands) and everyone else (bows for presents). Some of the styles even brought me back to my childhood when I had made similar things for my hair.

This book would be really fun for children as they can see what the end product will look like. The instructions are easy to follow. I recommend this book for anyone who likes to create things with their hands.

Not My Father's Son: A Memoir by Alan Cumming
Not My Father's Son: A Memoir

code7r, August 23, 2014

I knew of Alan Cumming before reading this book, but he was more in my periphery and I didn't know much about him. I like reading biographies and was happy when this book arrived in my mailbox. Alan Cumming is very raw and honest throughout the book. A major theme throughout the book is his abusive father. The challenges that Alan Cumming had to overcome to get to where he is now is impressive.

If you like biographies, or if you like Alan Cumming, then pick up this book. Mr. Cumming made himself vulnerable in this book, but this book was also a way of healing for Mr. Cumming.

Daring to Challenge OCD: Overcome Your Fear of Treatment & Take Control of Your Life Using Exposure & Response Prevention by Joan Davidson
Daring to Challenge OCD: Overcome Your Fear of Treatment & Take Control of Your Life Using Exposure & Response Prevention

code7r, August 23, 2014

If you or someone you know suffers from OCD, then you might want to pick up this book. Although I do not suffer from OCD and cannot apply this book to myself, it seemed to be well researched with a lot of suggestions on how to manage your OCD. The author includes the stories of three people who have different OCD symptoms to help illustrate her points and make them seem attainable. If you suffer from OCD, you might want to pick up this book. It may be able to help you alleviate some of the symptoms of OCD... if not, at least you will know that you are not alone and that there are others who understand what you are going through.

Wilson by A. Scott Berg
Wilson

code7r, October 20, 2013

If you want a comprehensive book on Woodrow Wilson, you have found it in A. Scott Berg's book titled simply "Wilson." The book is almost 800 pages of highly researched and thoroughly entertaining and informative information about our 28th president. I realized as I was reading it that I really did not know anything about this president. After reading it, I know a lot and I feel it was an excellent use of my reading time. Highly engrossing and often hard to put down, which is the goal of any book!

If you like to read about history and about American presidents, then you will highly enjoy this book.
