The Joy of the Gospel: Evangelii Gaudium by Pope Francis
The Joy of the Gospel: Evangelii Gaudium

njcur, November 5, 2014

This beautiful hardcover edition is a great addition to any spiritual person's library. The pope's thoughts are laid out in nice bite size chunks. Just right for meditation. This would be a good choice for a worship sharing group to read together and discuss. Very challenging and uplifting.

Etta Mae's Worst Bad-Luck Day by Ann B Ross
Etta Mae's Worst Bad-Luck Day

njcur, October 25, 2014

A high energy frolic. Not the Southern accent that I had hoped for in the reader, but she was very engaging and I warmed to her at once. This story takes place in Miss Julia's town, but she has just a cameo appearance. Etta Mae is really from the other side of the tracks. Lots of laughs as the plots twist and turn and jump all over one another. I liked it a lot and hope that there will be more Etta Mae stories. I am grateful to have won this audiobook from LibraryThing.

Asian Pickles: Sweet, Sour, Salty, Cured, and Fermented Preserves from Korea, Japan, China, India, and Beyond by Karen Solomon
Asian Pickles: Sweet, Sour, Salty, Cured, and Fermented Preserves from Korea, Japan, China, India, and Beyond

njcur, October 18, 2014

This book is a feast for the eyes as well as the mouth. The photography really invites you to jump in and try the terrific recipes. Organized by region, I was easily able to find the Japanese pickles we fell in love with while traveling there. Each country has its own basic techniques described to help those who like to experiment on their own. The glossary, resources and index make it easy to access the information and to expand on what is offered. I think Karen Solomon has hit a home run with this one.

36 Views of Mount Fuji: On Finding Myself in Japan: With a New Afterword by the Author by Cathy N. Davidson
36 Views of Mount Fuji: On Finding Myself in Japan: With a New Afterword by the Author

njcur, September 30, 2014

A really good view of Japan. Cathy Davidson describes being in Japan as a gaijin and its difficulties and rewards. She has some very interesting stories of people and places she visits. She and her husband live on a professor exchange for a couple of years. They return home to the American Midwest and they find that they pine for Japan. A return trip causes them to rethink their desire to return permanently to Japan. They make many trips over a number of years. I appreciated the tide-like push and pull that Ms Davidson felt for Japan and its customs. She articulated it very well. Good insights into her own thinking and that of her friends (Japanese and gaijin).
