Compass American Guides Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks (Compass American Guide Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks)

No spoilers here! You have to actually go to Yellowstone to discover it's unparalleled natural beauty, but this guide book gave us the best view of how to discover our country's first National Park for the first time better than any others we could find. It's not just a guide, but has the right balance of information, photographs, maps, direction and tidbits of information to make it the one you should choose to help you decide where to spend your time in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. Speaking of the photographs, Jeff Vanuga did an amazing job of taking clear, colorful, one-of-a-kind pictures for this 1st edition. Also, each photo has the location clearly indicated, some right on the full page photo itself! I researched which guide I wanted my family to use for this travel experience through our county library and THIS is the one I'm going to buy to keep!

New Moon (Twilight Saga #2) by Stephenie Meyer
 New Moon (Twilight Saga #2)

latereader, October 15, 2008

I've just finished the second book in the Twilight series, New Moon after my 13 year old (now 14) daughter zipped through the entire series in a matter of weeks. She loved all four books so much that I had to see what all the hub-bub was about. I didn't own New Moon when I finished Twilight and nearly went through withdrawal symptoms not being able to continue the saga immediately! Furthering my frustration, I was out-of-town and could hardly wait to return home to Powell's to buy a copy and start on it.
At first, I was disappointed that Edward's character 'disappeared' and wasn't sure I even wanted to continue reading New Moon, but Stephenie's writing is so intriguing I'm already on to #3, Eclipse.
Don't let the fact that these are written for youth hinder your interest in reading them. Of course, I've always had a 'thing' for vampires, so I think Ms. Meyer has it all figured out!

House and Home by Kathleen McCleary
House and Home

latereader, October 13, 2008

I found this book totally delightful. The perfect length for that not-often-gotten alone time I need. It reads somewhat like a daytime drama (commonly known as the soap opera) in that there are characters you identify with, characters you want to dislike and somehow can't really, characters that seem very familiar and others you wish you could get to know. Yes, our heroine, Ellen does seem a bit neurotic, but who hasn't wanted to burn their house down out of love and desperation..? Is that why I love the ambiance of candles? ;o)
