Britt-Marie Was Here by Fredrik Backman

Really, really fascinating book. And a somewhat unusual book as well, in that it completely changed focus/style about half way through. The first half was about the creation of the disaster, the second half about the aftermath - almost 100 years late ...more

A 3.5 star review, and I had a beast of a time figuring out whether to round up or round down. The things I like were really, really good; the things I didn't made me roll my eyes so hard. However, at the end of the day I was more charmed by the char ...more
Obama by Pete Souza
"Bought the book. Brought it home. Read it in one gulp. Give me the laughter, tears, sadness and joy in one sit. How could you not love this book ? Candid, beautiful photos (plus captions)

Amazing photos of an amazing president. I loved this different look into Obama's presidency, and enjoyed the mix of Obama the President and Obama the father, the husband, the friend. I hope we'll get someone like him back in the White House soon.

Douglas Adams
“Fiordland, a vast tract of mountainous terrain that occupies the south-west corner of South Island, New Zealand, is one of the most astounding pieces of land anywhere on God's earth, and one's first impulse, standing on a cliff top surveying it all, is simply to burst into spontaneous applause.”
Douglas Adams, Last Chance to See

rameau Learning to agree to disagree is a rare talent that should be cultivated. Thank you for the friend request. Glad to accept.


Margaret Chind Your interests and favorites do seem right up there with mine. I do love the Barenstein Bears. These new ones are especially fabulous by the son of the original authors Mark Barenstein. They are all directly Christian messages. They are just great.


Nightfalltwen You changed your user picture! Looks great!

:D

Maria Elmvang Excellent! Thank you :) I can't wait to read it. The author sounds familiar... I'll have to see if I've read anything else by her or am just mixing her up with somebody else.

I think I'll like it too - we tend to share tastes otherwise, so I think it's a relatively safe bet :)

Shannon (Giraffe Days) Hi, I'm mailing you that book today, Thunderwith by Libby Hathorn (it finally arrived yay!) - let me know when you get it so I know it didn't get lost in the mail! I hope you enjoy it, it's one of my favourites and also one of the first books I ever owned, so it has extra sentimental value (it was a surprise buy from my mum who knew how much I loved it. She didn't often do things like that. Couldn't afford to. So it was doubly sweet). If you don't like it, well, we'll never be friends again! Ha no not really, but I think you'll like it.
