1987 Wonder Woman Bookmark ~ Printed as part of a DC-backed literacy campaign

1987 Wonder Woman Bookmark ~ Printed as part of a DC-backed literacy campaign - my daughter loved Wonder Woman TV show back when!
colsmi: A 1987 bookmark featuring Wonder Woman, printed as part of a DC-backed literacy campaign. I would have guessed that Dick Giordano was at the very least the inker of the illustration, although far more informed folks - inc Sean Kleefeld - assure me it’s the work of Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez. (It’s hard to imagine the no-longer-so-Nu52 version of the character fronting a comparitive initiative, or, indeed, being able to convincingly hold such a confident, winning smile.)
Beach Trip - A Novel For every girl with lifelong girlfriends. Ones that come with the good, the bad...the secrets. A must read.

Miss Emmy Lou’s Chicken & Rice Salad
Now the friends, all in their forties, converge on Lola’s lavish North Carolina beach house in an attempt to relive the carefree days of their college years. But as the week wears on and each woman’s hidden story is gradually revealed, these four friends learn that they must inevitably confront their shared past: a failed love affair, a discarded suitor, a betrayal, and a secret that threatens to change their bond, and their lives, forever.
In August, we were in the midst of a major drought and just wanted to read something fun by the pool so we selected Beach Trip by Cathy Holton which fit the bill perfectly. The book was good but not great. However, it did have a surprise plot twist which some of us guessed and others didn't which was one of the main points of our discussion. The other was that Cathy Holton was inspired by her own book club to write this book.
Beach Trip a definite summer read!

Every day Christine wakes up not knowing where she is. Her memories disappear every time she falls asleep. Her husband, Ben, is a stranger to her, and he's obligated to explain their life together on a daily basis--all the result of a mysterious accident that made Christine an amnesiac. With the encouragement of her doctor, Christine starts a journal to help jog her memory every day. One morning, she opens it and sees that she's written three unexpected and terrifying words: "Don't trust Ben....

Before I Go to Sleep: A Novel by S. J. Watson "As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I’m still a child. Thinking I have a whole lifetime of choice ahead of me. . . ." Memories define us. So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love—all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may be telling you only half the story. Welcome to Christine's life.
A Book Worth Reading
Before I Go to Sleep: A Novel. Every night when Christine goes to sleep, her memory is wiped away. Who will she be when she wakes, Christine the child, the teen, or the middle-aged woman she will find in the bathroom mirror. This is an exceptional thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Before I Go to Sleep, another book club pick. It was good but not my favorite
Before I Go to Sleep - a little creepy but definitely worth reading
Before I Go To Sleep - I'm not gonna lie, I kinda bought this one because I thought the cover was cool :) but it ended up being a good read. It does test your patience a pinch bc the chapters are intentionally repetitive (read the summary and you'll understand why), but still an intriguing mystery!

"Water for Elephants" by Sara Gruen- One of my favorite books; I loved it from beginning to end.

Haunting and Candid book -We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver
Worth Reading, Lionel Shriver, Books Club, Books Worth, Tilda Swinton, Movie, Novels, Books Lovers, Talk
Just saw the movie and it was an awful horror story featuring Tilda Swinton as the mother. The book is scary too, but in a personal believable way--gulp. Basically the book explores the question of nature vs nurture within genius storytelling.
We Need to Talk About Kevin, Lionel Shriver: Extreme Parenting Hair Nothing can compare to the devastation of a mother when her child guns down his classmates, and she realizes that she may have given birth to a monster — or that she may have raised one. This harrowing, heartbreaking, phenomenally written epistolary novel will bring you as close (hopefully) to that feeling as you will ever get, and give you some serious emotional chest hair in the process.
A must read for book lovers everywhere. Shriver does a brilliant job
We Need to Talk About Kevin - Lionel Shriver. I have this book and know it's been made into a movie. It sounds absolutely terrifying, and I haven't had the guts to pick it up and read it yet.

Romans, Worth Reading, Books Club, Books Worth, Alice Hoffman, Alicehoffman, Red Tent, Historical Fiction, Books Review
The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman. I have not been so moved by a historical/religious fiction book since Anita Diamant's, "Red Tent." This book chronicles the Siege on Masada by the Romans in 70 C.E. I'm ashamed to admit I knew nothing of this tragic event. Fans of Hoffman's who, like me, may have gotten a little too used to her comforting blend of magic and romance will find this one breaks away from the rest, without loosing Hoffman's word magic and ability to flesh out amazing characters.
Inspired by the tragic massacre of hundreds of Jewish people on the Masada mountain in the Judean desert in 79AD, The Dovekeepers presents the stories of a hated daughter, a baker's wife, a girl disguised as a warrior, and a medicine woman who keeps doves and secrets while Roman soldiers draw near. Practical Magic and Skylight Confessions are also worth reading.
The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman is historical fiction. It tells the story of four women in the year 70 CE in ancient Israel who are holding out during the storming of the fortress of Masada, where 900 Jews took a stand against Roman soldiers (and only a few survived).

I'd love to read the book series eventually
November 2006 - The imaginative book that the beloved musical is loosely based on. It reads like four separate stories in one book. Maguire brings up lots of ethical questions, but they remain unanswered by the time Dorothy throws water on the Wicked Witch of the West, which is a great book for discussion.
The Southern Vampire Mysteries, also known as The Sookie Stackhouse Novels, is a series of books written by bestselling author Charlaine Harris that were first published in 2001 and now serve as the source material for the HBO television series True Blood.

OK, so I never thought I would be OK not flipping pages with my fingers. However, once my friends bought me this to be in their LA book club while I am in Ango, I must say, it is way better than lugging around books and then having nothing to read until your next R&R to a place that actually sells books. There are still books I will only buy in physical form, but this is pretty great.

Love my Kindle Keyboard, wouldn't trade it for any of the new ones. (Why would I want swipe if I could push a button to turn the page?!?) My favorite things about it 1. eink so kind to my eyes 2. keyboard area gives you a confortable place to grip it, or 'clearance' to rest it in your covers and not cover up the text 3. Being able to email it any document to read 4. So light weight
My review of the Amazon Kindle Keyboard 3G
The Amazon Kindle remediates books because it places a printed publication in a technological format. It is a remediation because the product advertises that it can save paper, you can store up to 1,100 books and there is no glare. For these reasons, the remediated kindle advertises that they are better than print books and offer these books in a newer, better context. The tech format "repurposes", as Gershon mentions, the print format.
My Kindle! How I read the books worth reading!
“Room,” is a stunning book written by Emma Donoghue that will stick with readers long after they have read the final pages. Told through the eyes of a five-year-old little boy named Jack, Room & his Ma the only things he has ever known because he has been held, and was even born in Room, his entire existence. His only glimpses of the outside world are through a skylight above their room and the limited amount of television he has watched through his time there.
