The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared
by Jonas Jonasson

I don't think I have had so much fun reading a book before. Not only did the 100 year old man lead an interesting life, he also had an amazing adventure. The characters are well developed and relatable. I had to keep reading it to see what would happen next. This book is fun, exciting, and touches on some historical events. I would recommend this book, and have added it to my 'must read again' list. (read more)

Edward Weston: One Hundred Twenty-Five Photographs Edward Weston: One Hundred Twenty-Five Photographs
by Edward Weston and Steve Crist

This is an amazing and inspiring collection of the best images made by one of the best photographers of all time....This collection of Weston in words and images touches a century of photographers and visual artists. So much of what he did paved the way for every trend that photography has endured. Powell's sent my copy last week and it now has a special place in my heart and library alongside the Daybooks and the books by other photographic icons of the 20th century. (read more)

Americanah Americanah
by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

As a teacher who is deeply involved in equity work in a public school I found this to be accurate and helpful to my work. Overall though, the novel addresses the power to get what one wants. Race is just one source of power and Adichie examines how money, social standing, and physical appearance can all either help or hinder people in their quest to get what they want. (read more)

Toobin's analysis and insight of the US Supreme in 'The Oath' is brilliantly written. The book provides an updated glimpse into the world of the US Supreme Court and the personalities behind it as a follow up to his previous book 'The Nine.' It is a must read for anyone interested in the US judiciary system. (read more)

The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters, Volume One The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters, Volume One
by Gordon Dahlquist

I enjoyed this book immensely. So much so, I had to get the next one and then the next one! I had each book read within a day or two, because, I did not want to put them down. The three main characters were each so different and yet were tied together perfectly. (read more)
