Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson ($8.46) http://www.amazon.com/Steve-Jobs/dp/B004W2UBYW%3FSubscriptionId%3D%26tag%3Dhpb4-20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D1789%26creative%3D390957%26creativeASIN%3DB004W2UBYW&rpid=vn1391773392/Steve_Jobs This book is a biography of Steve Jobs the founder of apple by Walter Isaacson. - I think most people who may not fully understand a product or its technology will still be able to get the idea of its importance in the scheme of the story. - I would highly recommend this book to anyone as it is detailed but well written and a great read.
I just finished reading Steve Jobs' biography by Walter Isaacson. While I've always been a fan of so many of his products, I hardly knew anything about his career and private life. This book is not only interesting for people interested in Macintosh, iPod, iPhone, iPad, and everything else, it is also a must-read for people interested in technology. It's worth reading if you want to find out, how iGod Steve Jobs really was, and I assure you, you will be surprised.

The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey; book recommendation by Great New Books for Jan. 30, 2013
January 2013 Book Club Selection. We adored this book! The Snow Child (not to be confused with the kids book, by the way) gave our imaginations something to wonder about the whole way. The author is FROM Alaska and clearly knows her stuff. She writes of what it's like to live in the rough a wild terrain through the eyes of an older married couple. If you like love, loss, and life lessons that don't always give you what you'd expect - pick this one up. You won't be sorry. Thumbs up from us all!
The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. Based on a Russian fairy tale. A lonely married couple, drifting apart in 1920's Alaska, build a child out of snow. She's gone by morning, but then they find Faina.
01. The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey (January) What a great book for the winter! I really really enjoyed this book! I thought that the relationship between the couple was great and loving and their struggle to survive in Alaska in the 1920's was fascinating. I loved the blend of reality and fairy-tale and I think the author was able to create something magical without making the story hokey!
this keeps coming up in searches. Guess I need to read it...

Language Of Flowers, Worth Reading, Foster Care, Languages, The Foster, Books Club, Books Worth, Vanessa Diffenbaugh, Book Clubs
October's Book Club pick is The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. The novel is about a young woman who as aged out of the foster system and gets a job in a flower shop where she uses her knowledge of the Victorian language of flowers to help costumers.
The Language of Flowers. A second chances book worth reading.
My first pick for book club. a phenomenal book about a girl who grew up in the foster care system…one of the homes she lived in she learned of the language of flowers from the Victorian age. When she aged out of the foster care system, she was homeless, and landed a job in a floral shop and used her skills which helps her work through her past.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern - The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern was such a beautiful read about a circus that comes to town randomly and is open only from dusk to dawn. Also, Celia and Marco are swept up in a challenge where they are unsure of all the rules. . . Written with the most beautiful imagery, I literally want to start wearing only black and white with a red accent piece.
Absolutely my favorite book of the last few months.
