"Very good" - by Jude
~4-4.5/5
This series is both sweet and heartbreaking, at times. We know how this ends in one realm, in one possibility, and at times we see how it follows the same path. It's hard to see all of the missed opportunities, to know how it ends when you're too scared, and how it goes when, even knowing that, it's hard to do something different. I can understand the hesitation, and yet it's still hard to see her follow the past.

When things start going different, when the letters aren't following what's happening in real time, it's uplifting. It's nice to see when Naho and Kakeru are finally honest and open with each other, and it actually goes in a good direction. It's also nice to see their friends growing and supporting each other.

After the main story ends, there are a few extra short stories, featuring non-related characters, and they were cute and ... full review

"Fun and thought-provoking" - by A.J. Fewkes
this series provides an interesting commentary on several deep social issues. it comments on suicide and the pain it causes the ones left behind, the danger of wasting time with "what if" questions. it places a heavy emphasis on how being assertive and going after what you want ultimately creates a better life. Unlike a lot of romance manga, it maintains a tight grip on its innocence while still remaining relevant to its audience.

"These are the HPLs you want" - by S. Gustafson (New Albany, IN USA)
Even if you already have the Del Rey paperbacks, you may well want these. Joshi's endnotes give both the chronology and date of first appearance of each story, and more importantly, discuss many of Lovecraft's sources and influences. These contain many pleasant and informative surprises. Lovecraft's wide range of interests in science and contemporary literature comes as something of a surprise to those who were brought up believing he was some kind of solitary and isolated genious.
The notes and introduction are also illustrative. Joshi makes the intriguing point that the "Cthulhu mythos" is in fact a sort of anti-mythology; while the world's religious myths seek to justify the ways of god(s) to man, the Cthulhu mythos proposes instead that they should stay as far away from one another as they can, and suggest that the powers that rule the universe are utterly alien and hostile or ... full review

"Easy, fun read" - by Gym mom
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. These are heartfelt stories of mothers and daughters and their tumultuous relationships and journeys through life. Each woman tells a story of her past which ultimately effects her future in fascinating ways. The only problems I had reading the e-book was I had to go back and match up mothers and daughters which would have been easier with a paper back! The realizations of love and understanding come to each character as their stories resolve into present day. I was sad to get to the end of the book.

"One of the classics of travelogue literature: The Snow Leopard" - by Magalini Sabina (Rome Italy)
Thoreaux: Where in all the world is the literature that gives expression to Nature?
Here it is, in Peter Matthiessens's National Book Award Winning "The Snow Leopard". Peter Matthiessen is now a living legend, a prophet of ecological thought and a long time American Buddhist, but in 1973, when the book was conceived he still wasn't so famous. At the age of 46 he decided to trek through the Inner Dolpo region of Nepal with his friend and co-explorer G. Schaller (well known for his studies on the Mountain Gorillas) to study the bharal (Himalayan blue sheep) and to try to get a glimpse of the mysterious and rare snow leopard. From September to December the two men traveled with sherpas and porters from Pokhara, around the Annapurna, the Dhaulagiri, through the Jang-La Pass, to Phoksumdo Lake to the Crystal Mountain and the Shey Gompa Monastery and back, studying the wild ... full review

"4 star format; decide for yourself about the book" - by Kirk (USA)
I won't review the actual book here - it's a classic, the subject of many other books and college courses and I'm sure innumerable papers and critiques. All I'll discuss is what I thought of the format of the book as well as what I thought of this particular edition.

I was a little worried about the idea of long, unbroken scroll. I'm not a marathon reader, in fact quite the contrary, I tend to read in short bursts due to time constraints and eye strain. When I read about the "original scroll" version of On The Road, I was concerned that I would be turned off by the long, unbroken stream of words. That turned out not to be a concern, partly because the story is episodic even if it isn't formatted that way, and partly because it was a fairly easy read that moved in ... full review

"Orange Color Story" - by College Mom (Katy, TX, USA)
I bought 8 of these color books to use in my classroom during "Color Week". We did a new color every day and my students had a grand time seeing if they could guess what orange item would come next. The photographs are wonderful & the text length is just the right length for my PPCD students. The items described were also a great jumping off point for us to make our own color lists for our classroom. Great for both teachers & parents of young children!

"My new favorite book" - by Kelly J Raudenbush (Phoenixville, PA United States)
I sat down to read it to my 4 year old daughter because the cover looked fun. I wasn't prepared for the life lessons in it for her and for me. With an engaging story that kept her attention and illustrations you could look at over and over again, I found myself reading with a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes as Rosie battled her fear of failure to do great great things. This book is as much for mommies and daddies as their little ones. I may just read it daily.

"Wonderful, and yet again, wonderful!" - by Muffy
Delightful, just delightful. The Kindle-in-Motion illustrations are all you could hope for, starting with the delicious cover. The portraits, both still and moving ones, are extraordinarily beautiful. I was so impressed and delighted. I showed the book to my mother on her I-Pad and she literally clapped her hands and said, "I have seen so many things in my nine decades, but to think I would live see books that move! What a wonder!" Enjoy the story again.

"Love the flaps, my favorite potty training book so far." - by MP
Cute book and really got my son to start thinking about going potty. He isn't going on the potty yet but I introduced this book about six months ago (at age 18 months) and he really liked the flaps and it got him talking about the potty. I like that the book touches on going to the potty throughout the story, but that there are also other things going on in the book (playing with his cousin in the sandbox, etc) so that its not so in your face about going potty.
