5-0 out of 5 stars SPECIALS
This is a spectacular ending to a fabulous trilogy. The plot and characters provoke questions on the importance of friendship and physical power. Tally Youngblood has undergone her second operation: she is now a fierce looking special who keeps Uglyville and New Pretty Town in line. What she used to call bubbly is now icy, and she is endowed with lighting-fast reflexes and superhuman strength. Tally soon discovers that the lesion curing pills have gone in to mass production, and are being handed out all over the city. Her special circumstances operation makes her believe that this is horrible, and that it is something to stop. On a trip back from crashing a pill-distributing party in Uglyville, she forces Shay to take her to Zane, who she has not entirely forgotten. They see that he is now cured, though he still feels the aftereffects of their pill-taking mishap, and that the Crims are now up to more serious tricks than crossing the borders on hoverboards. When he and some others of their old clique go on a journey to the New Smoke, Tally tracks behind them and in doing so disobeys orders from Shay. When she gets to The New Smoke, after a long time of struggling to understand how the Crims' minds are working, she gets a big surprise. During her time there she takes some heart-crushing blows, and learns in the end that specials really can cry. This is a remarkable book that leaves you to contemplate Tally's character and her strength- mentally and physically. It has a great ending, with an unexpected story twist that leaves you wondering whether she will ever live happily ever after. Read this if at all possible, and the other two in this trilogy along with it!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Hit of the Holidays
All of our friends and relatives commented on how much they liked these cards and because each one is different, we enjoyed picking just the right card for the recipients.My husband insists on creative cards each year because he's in a creative field.I'm not sure how we're going to top these next year!

5-0 out of 5 stars EXQUISITE!
I purchased these cards at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and wish I had bought at least 3 sets.Every card I put into an envelope I want to keep for myself.Each card is truly a little gift!Additionally, I am glad they say Happy Holidays because I have many friends celebrating different things this time of year.I am going to buy additional sets just to have (or give as gifts) for next year.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great, thoughtfully-made cards!
I love these cards and am purchasing a second set since the first set was so popular and wonderful to give away!A previous reviewer had given it only 1 star because they said the cards don't say "Merry Christmas" and has nothing about Christmas inside.The latter is not true.If anything, there is a slight Christian slanton a couple of the cards: one with baby Jesus, one with a lovely pop-up Bethlehem and star, and one stained-glass window one depicting the Virgin Mary and baby (and maybe a few more I can't think of right now).A large majority of the cards can be given away to anyone of any religion celebrating the holiday season.

Editorial Review

What is most notable about this funny, touching, memorable first novelfrom Stephen Chbosky is the resounding accuracy with which the author captures the voice of a boy teetering on the brink of adulthood. Charlie is a freshman. And while's he's not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. He's a wallflower--shy and introspective, and intelligent beyond his years, if not very savvy in the social arts. We learn about Charlie through the letters he writes to someone of undisclosed name, age, and gender, a stylistic technique that adds to the heart-wrenching earnestness saturating this teen's story. Charlie encounters the same struggles that many kids face in high school--how to make friends, the intensityof a crush, family tensions, a first relationship, exploring sexuality, experimenting with drugs--but he must also deal with his best friend's recentsuicide. Charlie's letters take on the intimate feel of a journal as he shares his day-to-day thoughts and feelings: Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars The Perks of Being a Wallflower
My book was called The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. It was 213 pages. It was about a freshmen named Charlie, who copes with the world of being a teenager in high school. Charlie is shy and reserved and always observes others, but by the end of the book he learns to socialize and "participate" in life. I chose this book because my cousin recommended that I read it. I liked it because I could relate to it. The intended audience was definitly high school aged teens. The biggest thing I learned from this book was we dont have the power to choose where we come from, but we can still choose where we go from there. I thought this was a pretty good book, but I didnt like it enought to read it again.

5-0 out of 5 stars love love love
this was an amazing book. it was simple but complicated and the way it's told makes it worth the read. we're really able to get inside charlie's mind. this hit me on an emotional level and i completely understand what he means when he says he feels infinite.
5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a coming of age story about a young man who is a wallflower is his own life. While this gives him some startling insight about his friends, he finds that he's not really participating, not really living his own life.

Editorial Review

Chester Raccoon doesn't want to go to school--he wants to stay home with his mother. She assures him that he'll love school--with its promise of new friends, new toys, and new books. Even better, she has a special secret that's been in the family for years--the Kissing Hand. This secret, she tells him, will make school seem as cozy as home. She takes her son's hand, spreads his tiny fingers into a fan and kisses his palm--smack dab in the middle: "Chester felt his mother's kiss rush from his hand, up his arm, and into his heart." Whenever he feels lonely at school, all he has to do is press his hand to his cheek to feel the warmth of his mother's kiss. Chester is so pleased with his Kissing Hand that he--in a genuinely touching moment--gives his mom a Kissing Hand, too, to comfort her when he is away. Audrey Penn's Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Phenomenal Book
I'm a 24 year old soon-to-be married woman.When my parents moved me into my college dorm room, they left little presents wrapped up in all of the boxes I had to unpack.As you can imagine, once they left I was eager to get situated and began unpacking boxes and filling drawers one-by-one.One of the little presents I came across was this book.Of course, I wasted no time reading it, and soon found myself with tears streaming down my face.I was on my own for the first time, but I knew I knew I wasn't alone; nor was I ever far from my parent's love.It brings tears to my eyes just remembering how touched I was reading that for the first time.This is a fantasic book for everyone- whether you're 5 years old and starting kindergarten for the first time, or 18 and in college.

5-0 out of 5 stars He put his fist up to his cheek...
This is one of my favorite books. The story of little Chester the raccoon, his fear of going away to school, and how his mom gives him a kissing hand so he'll know her love is with him is a priceless story. I've read it to my son and daughter often over the last few years.

5-0 out of 5 stars NOT JUST FOR KIDS!
If you want to be transported to a magical place for an hour or so, buy this book!I saw it and bought it just in case I ever have a granddaughter.I wasn't expecting it to be a hit with the adult women I know.But after feeling like I'd been transported back to being a little girl and swept into Fairyland (and I didn't believe in fairies!), I passed it around to my friends.It was just about impossible to get the book back!Everybody asked if they could share it with just one or two more friends.And this is before the book was ever shared with a child!Eventually I ordered 6 more copies from Amazon.The book is so creative and beautifully done.Just thinking about it continues to give me pleasure.

4-0 out of 5 stars A nice book
It is a very nice book, although small and simple.
5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book for the whole family
I can't say enough about this book and others like it.Its a beautiful book, just open the first page and you will see what I mean.I have bought this book for my grand daughter, and wizardology for my grandson, Dragonology for my other grandson, and pirateology for me, and I sent Egyptology to our oldest daughter who is a teacher, and she tells me the kids just get so excited about it.I also now, sell these books in my store.These books are a must have for any library. ...

This book is one of the tools. The other was the Learning Spanish Like Crazy self-study course. And the third was a reference book for verb conjugation (501 Spanish Verbs).

Author Wilson Rawls spent his boyhood much like the character of this book, Billy Colman, roaming the Ozarks of northeastern Oklahoma with his bluetick hound. A straightforward, shoot-from-the-hip storyteller with a searingly honest voice, Rawls is well-loved for this powerful 1961 classic and the award-winning novel Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Ulises Cruz Review
I really liked the book and it is a very fun interesting book to read. I really liked that it had to do with some sort of sport. I also liked it because it was book were there was all source of action. There was a little boy that lived in the hills and dream of having two coon hounds. He finally worked and saved enough money to buy himself two. He was so excited to get them that he trained them to hunt. The characters were very believable and never doubted that they were making them up. The plot was very interesting because it was about the kid entering a big coon hunt. He won the competition by treeing four coons with his dogs. The major themes of the story were when on of the Prichard brothers accidentally stabbed himself. The author used a very special way of imagery. He made everything be visual in my head. I was all into the story that I didn't want to stop reading. I didn't like by were sometimes they didn't talk about when the dogs killed the coons and how they treed them. They would sometimes leave you think what would happen next or what could of happen.

5-0 out of 5 stars Geez!
I adore this book. I wrote a reviw on what I think of it a while ago, so you could find it later. But I'm sick of all these people saing there was no action or adventure. What's up with that? And to the people who say there are lost of grammer mistakes in the book, you should check your grammer.

4-0 out of 5 stars a spectacular book
The book I read was "Where the Red Fern Grows".This story takes place in the state of oaklahoma.Thers a boy named Billy and he lives with his family.All Billy wanted was two hound dogs.One day Billy went to his grandfarthers store and his grandfarther told Billy he had to meet God half way.Billy worked til he had 25.00$.Billy got two hound dogs.He decided he name them Dan and Little Ann.Billy hunted all he could and he sold the skins for money.If you want to know the rest read this spectacular book your self. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The only book you'll need.
I have taught elementary math for over 20 years, and have a master's degree in math education. I found this to be the best book on teaching basic concept of addition and subtraction I have ever had.There are numerous activities which require little preparation, group and individual activities, all of which will teach your students to understand the real meaning of the concepts and help them develop fluency with numbers that will make a significant difference in their futures with math.

5-0 out of 5 stars A "Must Have" for Every Elementary Teacher

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
Really comprehensive and precise, helped me a lot in my backgammon ( http://www.play65.com/index.html?did=13870&tag1=11 ) game. if you want to know a thing or two about the game - give this backgammon book a try!

5-0 out of 5 stars Clear and comprehensive, with lots of positions
A great starting point for someone who wants to become a good Backgammon player.While the book is long, it doesn't drag, and the material is well presented.

2-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant in its day but that day has passed
This book is amazingly clear and well written but several positions are wrong. As are 2 whole chapters. Get 'Backgammon Bootcamp' by Walter Trice for an excellent accurate book. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars school supplies
Order arrived 2 days later than expected, but I was very pleased with the price I paid and the book was in excellent condition

3-0 out of 5 stars Good In Some Ways; Weak In Others
Our school uses this book for all Geometry classes. The book is quite thorough, but serves the teacher more than the students. The students for the most part don't read it; just use it to find the assigned homework problems.
2-0 out of 5 stars Weak Explanations and Fails to Challenge Even the Average High School Student
As a long time mathematics tutor and teacher I know this book very well. I don't think the material is presented or explained in a way that is especially helpful for young people. As a tutor I have to constantly reintroduce the topic and/or try to stay ahead of the student's class. Beyond that, the students are asked to do only the simplest of proofs. Additionally, a new topic will be introduced and then no problems appear in the exercise portion of the section to help the student test and practice his or her understanding of the newly introduced topic (and of course, those problems invariably will show up on the chapter exam and the final).

5-0 out of 5 stars Inkspell.....
This book was on my bookshelf in a less than a week after I read Inkheart.I really enjoyed it and could not put it down. Cornelia Funke used very good detail and surprised me very much as well.I never would have suspected some of the things that happened but I must admit that I expected some things that did not happen.I cannot say that one book was better than the other but I can say that it is a must read for all ages!

5-0 out of 5 stars Not just for kids
Cornelia Funke follows up her fantastic adventure, Inkheart, with a more in depth and more mature sequel.Younger kids can still appreciate the excitement and the magic, but a young adult or even adult reader can find enjoyment between the pages.The character development delves even deeper in this book.Inkheart explored what would happen if you could make your favorite characters real.Inkspell asks: What do you do after ten years away?Can you ever go back to an old life? And finally: can you choose who you love?
5-0 out of 5 stars What I think about Inkspell
I like Inkspell and Inkheart very much and I am hoping for the next book. My dad and I are thinking that it will probably start out with the word Ink (although he has not read it yet).

My 5 year old son loves holloween books.This one is up there with one of his favorites!Great illustrations and story.

4-0 out of 5 stars FUN HALLOWEEN BOOKS
My 2 1/2 year old just loves Halloween.He was born Oct. 28th so he's definitely a Halloween baby and he loves everything to do with the holiday including seeing pumpkins, bats and spiders.This delightful book by Natasha Wing is a Halloween takeoff on "Twas the Night Before Christmas" following the same pattern except that in this book various ghouls and goblins are preparing for Halloween and for the children who will soon be knocking at their front door.The Illustrations by Cynthia Fisher perfectly fit the fun tone and pace of the book and my little loves reading this one over and over...

5-0 out of 5 stars The Night Before Halloween is wonderful , colorful and cute.
The idea of the monsters getting ready for Haloween was great. I loved the book. I bought 10 copies and gave them to friends and relatives. They hadreceived the Night Before Easter Book and were looking forward to thecontinuation of the next Night Before series. We are anxiously awaiting TheNight Before Valentines Day. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the most important and fascinating books i have ever read & read again
I first read this book many years ago and have re-read it more than once since then. This book is one of the most engaging I ever read and is also a volume that includes a wealth and variety of knowledge that makes me want to read it again now. Few books have left me feeling such conflict at finishing it. Part of me is exultant at the pure pleasure of the learning experience, part sad because the glorious experience is ended. No person who considers themselves educated - truly educated - can fail to read this powerful volume.

4-0 out of 5 stars Informative Read
The Discoverers by Daniel Boorstin gave a great background to the technological and geographical improvements over the past 4000 years.
4-0 out of 5 stars Discover the Discoverers
Discoverers is a stand-out for both its scope and detail (more on detail in a moment), but what makes it truly remarkable is its subject matter, its illumination of ideas and bits of knowledge so basic to our everyday thinking that we scarcely, if ever, pause to think about them: our concepts of time, location (geography), physiology, culture, among others.The book is eye-opening, as it shows through historical exploration that for most of human existence most people have lived without using our concept of a year, our idea of a week, and much less our calibrations of twenty-four hours to a day, 60 minutes to the hour and 60 seconds to the minute.Similarly, the notions people have had about where they were on the planet, what the planet was, where it was in the universe, etcetera, were all equally vague (although everyone, everywhere, seems to have been fairly comfortable in the "knowledge" that their particular city was the center of the world and the world the center of the universe).Once Boorstin has laid bare the arduous path the human mind has had to trail-blaze to arrive at our modern ideas of time and space, he turns to the human body, showing that our modern knowledge of its constitution and function, too, is the result of hard-won, centuries-long, intellectual battles.
