I have mixed feelings about this book. I found it very motivating and inspiring at first, and actually decided to do it one chapter per day, and answer all the journal questions too. The first 15 days worth were good stuff. I found Johnson's anecdote...more

The Plant-Based Power Diet by Leslie Beck
Rate this book
Clear rating
I have read several books on the health benefits of the Vegetarian diet. This is the first how-to-style one I read which resonated with me. A few others I have read feel short in some way---they assumed a higher cooking skill level, or a more sophist...more

This was a hugely fun---and nostalgic---read for me. I grew up watching Reiser's show, and rediscovered it, on Netflix, right after I moved in with my sweetie. I picked this up on an impulse now that he and I are engaged, and moving into what Reiser...more

I got this book as part of a bundle, and was intrigued by the premise. I liked that the stories in this collection were a bit longer. I felt like I had enough time to get into each one and to really explore the premise of the story. However, like mos...more

Complete fluffy fun! To my surprise, looked great in the iOS app and was very readable, even on a smaller screen. I am a Lego fan and enjoyed seeing all the little layouts and scenarios in this little book. Good fun!

I'm not quite sure how to rate this book. I enjoyed it, and found Fey overall an engaging and well-spoken writer. But parts of it were very uncomfortable for me. I felt, especially toward the end, that Fey veered into a type of over-sharing that a go...more

The Last Town by Blake Crouch
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book was just okay. There were two twists I didn't see coming, which were neat, but I felt that overall, this story was pretty formulaic and the characters archetypal stand-ins. The series started off very strong, but the subsequent books were n...more

This was an engrossing and very well-done YA read. I was worried initially about keeping track of so many characters, but I found I really got into the lives of the eight main girls, and the author did a good job weaving their stories together. I did...more

This was an immersive, well-written story that i finished in less than a day. I just kept reading! I loved the way the book was structured, with the big revelation coming quickly and Alice's condition progressing from there. A gimmick of a series of...more

Identical Strangers by Elyse Schein

This was a fascinating and very well-done memoir about a pair of twins who meets as adults, each adopted to different families and unaware the other existed. I thought Paula and Elyse did a good job alternating sections, although it got confusing at...more
