I am among the ranks of millions of people who appreciate the souls of dogs and know they are a gift of pure love and an example of all that is good. This book contains seventy short stories from people all across the country who share their true stories of life with their dogs, many of which have led to spiritual enlightenment. I liked that I could pick up this book and read a few heartwarming stories and then come back to it sometime later to read a few more.
A wonderful read!

Last summer, Arlie Hochschild, who owns the conserved land I steward in Turner for the Androscoggin Land Trust, gave me a copy of her latest book. Little did I realize how pertinent it would prove to my own life, and I'm recommending it here because I know that at Bates, there are many people who are scattered far from the traditional support systems of families and home towns; people who have moved here for work and chosen to make a home here. Independence is great, until trouble strikes and you need help.
Without the framework of people who 'have" to help you out, where do you go? In our mobile society, the question is pervasive--and a whole new group of careers has emerged to fill the void. At first I rolled my eyes over the idea of people hiring a "Wantologist," but came to realize that perhaps the best advice might be from someone without a stake in the outcome. See what you think! She had me from Page 1. It's not about the butterflies. Life Everlasting: the animal way of death by Berndt Heinrich.

A beloved naturalist examines recycling of a different sort--and made me re-examine my burial plans. The thought of continuing on to nourish other lives is very appealing; an immortality of sorts. Helprin continues the kind of magical romance that captivated me in his Winter's Tale. Two uncommon people glimpse each other on a brilliant May day in , and their lives are turned upside down and transformed.
What could be a more romantic beginning? The novel could have stopped there. But it goes on, to lives beginning, and ending, and dancing through postwar New York City. Enjoyable and gripping adventure story — Ms. Collins offers a futuristic look at life after an apocalypse with political intrigue. I agree with the previous readers who recommended this set of books and pass along my referral.
I enjoyed reading this story because of the ease in which the author pulls the reader into the lives of the characters. The dramas that Hanna and her visitors endured were easy to relate to and provided an extra bit of connectivity with living in Maine by aptly describing the trials and celebrations of people living in a coastal town. See cut and pasted from Amazon description:. Now, with a candor and intimacy never undertaken by a sitting Justice, she recounts her life from a Bronx housing project to the federal bench, a journey that offers an inspiring testament to her own extraordinary determination and the power of believing in oneself.
Here is the story of a precarious childhood, with an alcoholic father who would die when she was nine and a devoted but overburdened mother, and of the refuge a little girl took from the turmoil at home with her passionately spirited paternal grandmother. But it was when she was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes that the precocious Sonia recognized she must ultimately depend on herself.
She would learn to give herself the insulin shots she needed to survive and soon imagined a path to a different life. Along the way we see how she was shaped by her invaluable mentors, a failed marriage, and the modern version of extended family she has created from cherished friends and their children. Martin Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese. Joe Coomer: Pocketful of Names A story set on an island in the gulf of Maine, about an artist who has her solitary life all figured out.
Until a dog washes up on her island. And then a wayward teen-aged boy comes to live with her. And then the boy brings his girlfriend. And then her pregnant half-sister shows up. It turns out to be an odd and wonderful cast of characters, who ultimately make it all seem perfectly normal.
I love Coomer's comfortable and sensitive writing, and on Sarah P's advice am currently reading another of his novels, "Beachcombing for a Shipwrecked God". This one is set on the harbor in Portsmouth, NH. It's about dealing with grief, and finding solace in unlikely places. So far I like it. George's beautiful descriptions of England in the 's make the story of the "Virgin Queen" come to life.www.hiphopenation.com/mu-plugins/usa/hook-up-houma.php
Not a Drop to Drink (Not a Drop to Drink, #1) by Mindy McGinnis
Surrounded by the likes of William Shakespeare, Sir Walter Raleigh and Francis Drake, Elizabeth is portrayed as a strong and willful character, who even as a powerful woman suffers from the limitations of her sex if you'll pardon the double entendre. The story is about time travel I LOVE time travel , in which a regular guy gets hooked into traveling back to the time Kennedy was assassinated to try to stop the whole thing. If you are old enough to remember , you'll like the references to the dances, the music, the newscasts. If you're not that old, you'll still like the way the story is intricately woven of many disparate threads.
It will make you think about best intentions, how one tiny variable can shift a whole story, and "what if" This one is about a young archeologist from the 21st century who travels back to the 's as part of her graduate research.

If you like the idea of the ultimate in experiential learning and thinking about how you would convince people from another century that you are one of them despite the fact that you are immune to all of their diseases Still the most literate, insightful, entertaining and regularly compelling magazine read I've ever encountered. Newspapers online or print : The New York Times. Still simply the world's finest daily newspaper, cover to cover. Were you to ask me for some recommended film titles, you'd probably wish you hadn't.
The lists would never stop coming. Two titles by Charles Mann: and , the former about what was going on in the Americas before Columbus; the latter about what happened afterwards. Funny and smart. Martin Andrucki, Professor of Theater. I've listened to lots of books in my car on my commute. I haven't had great luck finding something good to read this year.

Robinson A highly readable book about how political institutions play a central role in explaining the current inequality in wealth between nations. For a book about a complex subject, it is very well written. It is simply wonderful.
An interesting-- and somewhat sad--take on the immigrant experience in Europe and the challenges of returning "home". My list. All out of print. Four books of photography and one of interviews.
