Book Review: Rent a Third Grader (Book 86 of 100)

Rent a Third Grader is a really fabulous kids' book I discovered at the Lilly Library when no one showed up for my writing group one day. I read the entire thing 190 pages of big print and easy reading because it's designed for third graders. I read it on the bus route to Boston, I was sorry that I... Sign in to see full entry.

Movie Review: Terminator Salvation

I admit that I am kind of a Terminator addict. I love the idea since I saw the first Terminator when I was 10 or so. I just rented Terminator: Salvation from the library. I watched it two and half times before I returned it. A lot of people didn't like it very much, but I did. Christian Bale was an... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: Stormbreaker (Book 85 of 100)

I don't usually read spy novels. I'm just not a James Bond girl. But when I saw Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz on my library's audio bookshelf, I picked it up. It's the story of Alex Ryder, a young man raised by his uncle after his parents die. As the book opens, his uncle dies too when Alex is... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: The View from Down Here (Book 84 of 100)

Jude Lally, the author of my 84th book for review is my Facebook friend. With this in mind, one might assume that I cannot review his book honestly. I, however, tried to be honest in my review. Parts of the collection I loved. Parts made me upset. The book was published by Accents Publishing, one of... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: Alex & Me (Book 83 of 100)

I'm not much of a scientist as people that read this column regularly know but I am a pet owner and books about people and their pets appeal to me. Alex, a 31 yr old gray parrot at the time of his death was not Dr. Irene Pepperberg's pet he was her research animal. But don't get alarmed Alex was... Sign in to see full entry.

Movie Review: Kissing Jessica Stein

Kissing Jessica Stein is one of those movies that I know by heart. I know every line except for two and now that I've seen the dvd with subtitles I know those two as well. I loved this movie the first time I saw it even though the ending is sad because Jessica and Helen broke up. But it still had an... Sign in to see full entry.

Movie Review: Ira and Abby

Ira and Abby stars Chris Messina Jessica Westfeldt. Westfeldt wrote the movie as she did with Kissing Jessica Stein. Once again, she plays a slightly eccentric relationship deficient woman, only this time she is not Jewish although he is. Ira and Abby meet at a gym. Abby is supposed to sell him a...

Movie Review: Joe Somebody

Joe Somebody stars Tim Allen as Joe Sheffield. I've been meaning to watch this movie ever since I saw it advertised in the beginning of Kissing Jessica Stein, one of my all time favorite movies. So I rented it around a month ago but never got around to reviewing it, although, I swore I had. The... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: Skinned (Book 82 of 100)

Skinned by Robyn Wasserman is not the kind of book that is supposed to make you think, but it made me think a lot. Or maybe Ms. Wasserman was simply smart enough to get a very smart book aimed at teens past the YA publishing powers that be. Skinned sat around for a while in my book pile. I was too...

Book Review: Love is is Mixed Tape (Book 81 of 100)

Love is a Mixtape by Rob Sheffield ended my search for a love story to complete my summer reading requirements. It's not a traditional love story. It's part memoir, part music, article, and a lot of sad. The story is basically this: you meet the love of your life at 23, she dies suddenly 5 years... Sign in to see full entry.
