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

lanani808, December 7, 2009

Reading this book probably saved my relationship. It also gave me great insight into the difference between what I think I need from others and what I truly need. Dr. Chapman shares some very realistic situations to get his points across, and explains the love languages very clearly. It's not necessary to go through the whole class with this book, as I didn't, but it got me interested enough to subscribe to his weekly newsletter.

Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes by Helen Oxenbury and Mem Fox
Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes

Even before our baby arrives, we've already picked this one out as the first one we want to read to her. The rhyming and rhythm lend themselves well to engaging a small child, and the sentiment will keep mom and dad enjoying this book over and over.

Thanks and Have Fun Running the Country: Kids' Letters to President Obama by Jory John
Thanks and Have Fun Running the Country: Kids' Letters to President Obama

lanani808, February 11, 2009

I'm a minority, and I didn't vote for him. It sounds like the creators of this book are contributing to the rampant liberal indoctrination spreading across our country. Sad that at such a young age these kids are not given opportunities to see the other side of the coin. So what if he "looks like them"? Let's see what he actually does before we start hailing him as the solution to all our problems. As far as I know, HOPE doesn't pay the bills.

Bronc Man (Leisure Historical Fiction)
Bronc Man (Leisure Historical Fiction)

lanani808, March 3, 2008

This book reads like a Western Noir novel. Bagdon writes in dry, in-your-face, description full of color and wit. The details are so gritty, you can almost feel the dirt between your teeth. Surprisingly, Cal isn't just a gunslinging man's man, he's also a cowboy rode in on horseback straight from a bodice-ripping romance novel.

A Personal Stand: Observations and Opinions from a Freethinking Roughneck by Trace Adkins
A Personal Stand: Observations and Opinions from a Freethinking Roughneck

lanani808, March 3, 2008

Trace writes like he's having a conversation with his readers. His style is so natural, I can hear the low, raspy tone of his voice clear as day. Alternating between autobiography and social commentary, it's like sitting on the front porch with a good friend and shooting the breeze. As it turns out, Trace isn't just a great entertainer, he's incredibly informed and fascinating as well.
