Teach Yourself Visually iPhone 4S (Teach Yourself Visually) by Guy Hart Davis
Teach Yourself Visually iPhone 4S (Teach Yourself Visually)

OK, I'm fairly sharp, but not that tech savvy or interested in becoming so. Just want the phone to work for me. I find this book starts out on page one written for someone who knows the lingo. Why not define terms? (example, 'sync' is used a lot. What is it and why does someone need to do it?) I thought the book was a basics book, but one has to have a knowledge base to use the book. Wasted my $.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Reading this book in January 2001 interested me in traveling to Scotland to see locations from the book, and then in writing a novel set in Scotland, and producing several music concerts for a Scottish musician. The book, in addition to enjoying it for itself, set a chain reaction of new interests that changed my life.

In the Company of Cheerful Ladies: The New Novel in the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency Series (No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency) by Alexander McCall Smith

When the news of world events gets you down, Alexander McCall Smith's series NO 1 LADIES' DETECTIVE AGENCY is a great escape. Mma Ramotswe, Botswana's lady detective, usually manages to find the win-win solution, but it's not always easy. McCall Smith's charm is subtle and strong.

An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon
An Echo in the Bone

moon by day, August 19, 2009

Let me review this book 5 weeks before its release date of September 22, 2009, based on having read the previous 6 books in the OUTLANDER series: Jamie and Claire want little more than to be together and be safe, yet they are often separated and in danger. Wars, illness and injury, pirates, politics, wild animal attacks....any number of life's challenges stand in the way. The adventure continues! I'll be there Sept. 22 to get my copy, followed by several days of non-stop reading!

Driving Over Lemons: An Optimist in Spain (Vintage Departures) by Chris Stewart
Driving Over Lemons: An Optimist in Spain (Vintage Departures)

I really enjoyed this look at life in rural Spain near the historic city of Granada. A contemporary English couple move to a beautiful and very rustic mountain-side farm and meet the many challenges there with the help of generous neighbors and humorous outlook.
