    Spinning Straw into Gold: What Fairy Tales Reveal About the Transformations in a Woman's Life []  2020-1-31 7:21

    I originally found this book at the library and loved it. I don't normally books, because I read a amazing and don't collect books. This book I had to because I will reread it a lot of times so I wanted my own copy. It has provided a amazing depth and insight into my reading. It also has given me a better understanding of female roles in our society and culture and how we're conditioned to think and act as we do. Highly recommend.

    Spinning Straw into Gold: What Fairy Tales Reveal About the Transformations in a Woman's Life []  2020-1-31 7:21

    For the record, my respond to Joan Gould's first question--"What's your favorite fairy tale?"--is "Beauty and the Beast".This question begins a beautiful, lyrical exploration of a lot of fairy tales, both popular and obscure, and how they relate to the various stages of women's lives. In the Sleeping Beauty chapter, for example, she delves into the psyche of a young woman just awakening into sexuality; for Beauty and the Beast she explores a woman's experience with courtship and the beginning of marriage, and for the tale of Demeter she talks about being an older woman, watching one's kid choose her own path. These are just a few examples. For every tale Gould draws parallels to other, more modern novels and films that include fairy-tale archetypes, like Jane Eyre, Beautiful Woman, The Story of O, Harry Potter, and Wuthering Heights. I saw myself reflected over and over in these pages, both in the chapter that best fit my current circumstances and in all those that preceded it. I concur with the reviewer who says she wished she'd had this book when she was 18. It just "clicks" so well with things I'd experienced but not known how to name, and ties them in with the stories I've always loved, revealing to me just why those stories never lose their resonance with only quibble is that Gould focuses more on the biological aspects of womanhood--menstruation, sex, childbirth, menopause--than on other sorts of choices women make, like career and creativity. She does mention these things, but they are not given as much emphasis.

    What a delightfully written book! As a lover of fairy tales, I found this to be both brilliantly researched and witfully penned. Gould is sterling in her observations and insights of the transformations of women. I would recommend this book to all lovers of the fairy tale as well as women in general!

    Spinning Straw into Gold: What Fairy Tales Reveal About the Transformations in a Woman's Life []  2020-1-31 7:21

    I found the authors writing to be poetic and the content verbally well formed. From this perspective it was a amazing book.What I found disconcerting was that this writer seems fixated on the female biology rather then the MANY things that create a women a whole person. These fairy tales were written long ago when society viewed women as small more then objects. I feel that the author is very amazing at continuing this line of thought. If one were not to know any smart women you might think, after reading this book, that the only persute that a women had in life was to obtain a friend and procreate, and that the best moments in a womens life are experianced on her back and that she pines for this day and night. This books off balanced aproach to the MANY aspects of being human degrades the person to less then human. The books constent ability to create almost ALL things or to sexualize them became and overly easy. In the end I walked away feeling small more then an unthinking chimp in the zoo because of the lack of its ability to validate that a womens content is far more then just her sexuality.If you are confused are unsure about your physiology or biology and why you behave in certain ways, and would like it explained through fairy tales then this is the book for you. If you wish to be validated as a whole person that is more then just a biological hormonal object then this book could prove to be upsetting. I personally was not ready to have womenhood degraded to only such narrow aspects but, maybe others might search it entertaining to discover there body chemistry through fairy tales.

    Don't miss the Hank the Cowdog series! Amazing for reading to your children as they climb into bed at night, or anytime you can obtain them sit still for a half-hour. You don't have to be from Texas to have fun this highly entertaining author and his hilarious stories about the "Head of Ranch Security", Hank the Cowdog. You don't even have to be from the country! I sent some of these to my friends' children in the northern states, also, and they were begging for more! Intended for kids and young adults, but amazing for the young-at-heart also! You can't support but laugh out loud at the antics! My children are long grown, but I'm still keeping up with Hank.

    John R. Erickson gets funnier and funnier. We listened to this CD for the first time driving an eight hour slog over a mountain pass. We almost drove off the street a couple of times, we were laughing so hard. We kind of regretted not bringing our other Hank the Cowdog CDs, they create a long, boring trip seem almost negligible.

    Tales from the Expat Harem: Foreign Women in Modern Turkey (Seal Women's Travel) []  2020-1-25 5:22

    A FUN read for anyone who has lived in Turkey as an expat under circumstances where they got to know Turks well and were exposed to traditions and attitudes various from theirs. Also a fun read for anyone interested in, or who has experienced, cross-cultural differences of any kind in any country. A MUST read for anyone planning to go to Turkey under circumstances where close connections with the people will occur and will be desired by the person going there as an expat and staying there for a period of time long enough to experience the cultural differences that exist in any country that is not our own.

    Tales from the Expat Harem: Foreign Women in Modern Turkey (Seal Women's Travel) []  2020-1-25 5:22

    The selection of women writers was varied enough to obtain glimpses of both urban and village life, and in both the East and West of Turkey, which I learned from this book are very various areas. I didn't care for all of the stories - which is fine with me; I don't expect to identify with every female on the planet. The writing quality varies. While I presume the editor(s) did a bunch of cleaning up, they did not take away the various voices, which is a amazing thing. If you are curious about what a modern, Muslim-dominated society looks like, especially from a female (and usually feminist), non-Turkish point of view , this is a amazing put to start. I suspect readers will be pleasantly surprised. I certainly was.

    A Fez of the Heart: Travels around Turkey in Search of a Hat []  2020-7-26 21:38

    I have to confess that I enjoyed the book. that's a confession because I can understand how it must offend a lot of Turks. Anyone who writes about the politics and latest history of Turkey is bound to offend someone. I thought the author tried hard to show the various viewpoints of Turks, Greeks, Armenians and Arabs. The issue was that he also tried hard to be funny. Sometimes he succeeded, but sometimes the humor is at the level of the pun in the title. There is something ludicrous about the state prescribing what clothes people must wear. All governments, including Western ones, do this to some extent. He could have created the point more effectively without playing so obviously for laughs. A lot of countries include not good and backward rural locations and fundamentalist religious groups

    A Fez of the Heart: Travels around Turkey in Search of a Hat []  2020-7-26 21:38

    This book isn't quite history; it's more of a travelogue. The travelogue's attempts to describe Turkey viewed through fez-colored glasses falls a small short, but the historical aspects of Seal's wanderings are on-key. The delvings into Western newspaper correspondents he presents are fascinating, if blatantly discriminatory (we'll not forget this was in the 1920s, and said correspondents were imperial Brits who still believed in Piltdown Man). Seal spends a amazing of time in rural Turkey, running into strange individuals and quietly mocking them in imitable fashion (we here at History House have come to recognize dry wit ubiquitous to British travel writers). To be frank, he created us long for the apparently unavailable 1839 book Hero and Costume in Turkey and Italy, by Thomas Allom, which was written at the transitional moment between the turban and the fez and filled with all manner of dress idiosyncrasies. He tries to create it all heartwarming in the end, but the fact of the matter is that he searches Turkey all over for a damn fez and never really finds one. Instead he scratches his head over the Turkish dichotomy of Islamism vs Europeanism, which is a phenomenon that a lot of modern Turkish politicians, and Turks themselves, seem to be trying to straddle. Go figure. []

    Jeremy Seal's "A Fez of the Heart: Travels Around Turkey in Find of a Hat" is a fun travelogue, but it's also a bit more. Seal may not quite have the historical sweep of a Jason Goodwin, the literary panache of a Bruce Chatwin or the daring of an Eric Hansen. But in pursuing his private obsession with the fez (first imposed then banned a century later by regimes seeking to improve Turkey's image), Seal addresses some necessary cultural and aesthetic questions for the age of PoPoMo globalism. Must memes from traditional cultures be lost as the globe gets smaller? And can "modern" or "western" admirers of those memes hold them alive as more than a not good parody of the original? Much of the melody I search most compelling attempts be simultaneously reverent and irreverent as it mines traditional forms, but Seal finds that it is no longer possible to wear a fez without irony. I fear that as goes the fez, so goes all traditional culture.

    A fascinating series of stories from a lot of various western women. They share cultural experiences from numerous parts of Turkey, rural and urban, east and west. Some of the stories are very intimate, female issues, mother-in-law issues, while others are about shopping, or meals. My only concern is whether the info is dated, even though it is from 2006. Generally though it is very interesting.

    I ordered five book about Turkey to read in preparation for my trip there this coming May, and this was by far my favorite. In fact, I think it's my favorite travel book ever. The book is composed of short essays by different women, mostly American, who have lived in Turkey and you can obtain a true inside personalized look into the country from their writing. These women don't just give you the history and geography, although there is some of that. They obtain you into the kitchen, into the bedroom, into the workplace, and into the baths in different areas throughout the country. Their stories are about people and relationships and from reading this book, I feel like I have a much better understanding of the Turkish culture. The tone of the book is conversational, and after reading a couple of books on Turkish history, Tales From the Expat Harem, seemed like talking with mates who happened to all be accomplished storytellers. I would have enjoyed this book even if i didn't have a trip to Turkey on my calendar.

    I absolutely loved this book! Non-fiction, short stories that had me both laughing and crying, absolutely captivated. Each story provided insight to the particular author's thoughts and emotions, as well as insight into different aspects of Turkish culture. I never knew Turkey was a put I wanted to visit until I read this book! Would highly recommend to any woman who has travelled to or lived in Turkey, or is just interested in the culture. I would even recommend this to any woman who loves travel in general and experiencing other cultures. One of my favorite books, it has a permanent put on my bookshelf.

    We don't seem to be too knowledgeable about countries in the Middle East zone and this book will explode any and all stereotypes holding you back from learning from the Turkish experience of several diverse western women who either live there or have spent much time there. Each story is written by a various woman, usually about a various angle or aspect of the culture, and it is rich with warmth and human kindness and true people. It has certainly inspired me not to be afraid to travel to the region and I will the first possibility I get! Captivating writing, delightful, mind-opening stories. Don't miss this book. I passed it along to my daughter. Halfway through, she called and said she was heading to the local Istanbul Cafe (here in the southwest) for lunch and was dying to travel to Turkey! It's contagious, the enthusiasm and love of the writers for the country and its people. Don't miss it!

    A Fez of the Heart: Travels around Turkey in Search of a Hat []  2020-7-26 21:38

    This is a very well-crafted travelogue about Turkey by a writer/journalist who has taken the time to learn Turkish as well as the history and culture of the locations through which he is traveling. He turns a mean metaphor is however very puzzling that he chose to tour the country in winter, including the frozen highland parts of the country in the east, which makes for hard traveling and unlovely cityscapes. Combine the wintry weather with his quixotic quest to search the origins of the fez (the funny-looking Ottoman headgear), and you have a downright eccentric kind of travel book. Despite that, read this book and you'll learn a lot about Turkey, and laugh out loud quite a few times.

    Whether or not to read this book shold be determined by the type of info you are pursuing. When I travel around a country (and my wife and I have spent about 1 month traveling around Turkey) I like to do so with at least three books: 1. a amazing travel tutorial (in our case we use only the Lonely Planet guides, they are the bible for travelers), 2. a amazing comprehensive history and 3. a amazing lighthearted read of the people, history, culture, etc.'A Fez of the Heart' falls into the latter. It is a very enjoyable book about the travels of an young man returning to Turkey and getting educated in its latest (post WWI) history. The education is comical and caused both my wife and I to laugh out loud. The plot pertaining to seeking out anything to do with a fez is a clever cover to explain the author's presence and is book should not be read as a cultural barometer nor a factual history of Turkey. It is a pleasant and humorous read that left me with the desire to obtain to better undersand elements of Turkey's latest past.If that is what you are looking for you will not do any better than 'A Fez of the Heart'.

    Not one of the women essayists published in this anthology is a tourist or a casual observer of Turkish culture. Among them are professional businesswomen, teachers, artists, writers, a nurse, a reporter and a Christian missionary. All have lived in Turkey long enough, and behind the patina of tourist romanticism, to have entered into the culture as an active participant. Some have learned Turkish, some have married Turkish men, some have worked independently, and all are perfect writers. They come from an assortment of countries, yet share a primary attitude of receptivness and willingness to discover life beyond the cultural milieux in which they've been is is a book for seekers and students and those who would like to revisit their own experiences with all things [email protected]#$%!& will not support persons who wish to plan a vacation to Turkey, but it will engage all the senses-- and especially the heart-- of anyone who reads it.

    A very interesting and enlightening story told from the standpoint of very independent women. If this is a issue for the reader then stop now. These stories tell of the excitement of being an independent person, of taking chances, of not being afraid of what lies ahead, of looking looking at challenges as well as opportunities as a method toward growth and fulfillment. This s a story about the women of today who are not afraid to accept challenges.

    Turkey... a few short years ago it wasn't even on my radar screen of locations to visit; but after befriending a number of Turks online and experiencing how incredibly warm, begin and loving these people are, I suddenly found myself deeply interested in learning more about this exotic country and yes, eager to visit someday.Heartwarming, infuriating, passionate, free-spirited, stubborn, embracing, zest for life are some of the words and adjectives that come to mind when I think of the stories in Tales from the Expat Harem. In some ways Turkish culture is much more conservative than Western culture, yet in other ways, more open, uninhibited! From caring neighbors to overbearing in-laws, relentless male pursuers to protective bus drivers, each story is like an intimate small window into Turkish life and is much more private than what you'd search in a typical travel gravating, touching, dramatic, never boring; Turkey beckons me even stronger now than before! ;)

    I was in Turkey when I started reading this and I continued to read and have fun it when I got home. Each story rings real and so a lot of of the anecdotes reflected aspects of life that I came across while there. Definitely gave me an insight into Turkish life for women. The only limitation is that - I think - most of the women were from a white, middle-class, English-speaking, American or Anglo background. That's just my impression, maybe I'm wrong. It would have been very interesting to search a more diverse group but I still really enjoyed it and would recommend reading it whether you go to Turkey or not.

    One cat chowed it down and looked for more. The other cat took a few mins because of the unfamiliar texture. Both would have devoured the whole bag. Didn't seem to have a issue with the huge chunks at all. Messy? A small but most things are with my cats. Love the healthy recipe for my fur babies.

    My cat loves another brand of these freeze dried turkey treats but she was skeptical of these. First the smell when you begin the bag is sort of chemically smelling. At least thats what I noticed. My cat noticed something was off too but I stupidly kept offering it to her until she finally took it. For two days (twice a day) I gave her these treats. By the end of day two she was vomiting. She heaved all night long. My other cat doesn’t normally like these freeze dried treats but I thought I’d see what he thought. He got a few on day two and puked once later on and that was that.I brought my cat to the vet with the meal (which was the only change in her diet for long time) and my Dr told me to stop feeding it to her and gave her an anti-emetic. No more puking and Im never giving them this brand again. Threw away what I had left.

    My eighteen year old cat is addicted to this freeze dried turkey. She would eat the entire bag in one sitting if I would allow her, which I won't, and I am firmly convinced she would me off in a heartbeat for a lifetime supply. As a previous reviewer said, it is very dry and crumbly - but my cat licks it all up eagerly. This items is outrageously pricey at 5.99 for a one ounce bag (over 95 dollars a pound- what kind of nonsense is that?), But the cat is addicted, so . . . By the method she does not care at all for the cod fish - she just loves the turkey.

    I was surprised to obtain the old packaging since they created so much hype about the fresh packaging. I also must not have read into it enough, i was shocked at how chalky and huge the treats were.

    The cats likes these treats, but the turkey cubes were about half an inch square. This is too huge for them to bite, so the cats and I broke them into smaller pieces. The thing is, freeze dried meal turns to powder when crushed. So the pieces that stayed together were eaten, but in the process of breaking or biting lots of turkey dust fell onto the wood floors. The remaining mess looked like someone had dropped flour. It requires immediate cleanup. Maybe if we had a dog it would have gone after it, but alas. Also, about a fifth of the bag was crushed turkey powder when it arrived. We will have to sprinkle it on their meal to be able to use all of the product. I will likely not this again because there are a lot of other treat options that don't leave world sized powder messes on my floor.

    If I found a box of these, I would leave them there. I bought these for my kitties, when I opened the package, I knew they were not going to be into it. These smell nothing like turkey, and a lot like plastic. It’s a weird texture, irregular pieces. If I had spent $6, I’d be mad. Instead, having spent $2, I’m annoyed. Please don’t waste your money.

    If you are interested in Arab globe this book might interest you. It wasn't an simple read for me as much as I wanted it to be, I enjoyed only some parts of it and found rest very hard to read & understand. Sometimes there seemed to be no concept - a bit from this and a bit of that, no flow. Very unfortunately I have to say this book was just ok at best... Maybe it's being translated from Spanish to English, who knows.And yes - it seems to talk only about first year or so of the travel, which seem to go in to circles of same old, same old just in various country.

    5 stars to the first 80% of the book! The rest is still amazing but not as good. Pablo is insightful and I can fully relate to his 'mental asides'. If your mind wanders periodically, you've traveled at least a small bit and have an understanding of people and culture you will very much have fun this read! I'm eager to read more of their trip and insights.

    I love the spirit and fortitude needed to see the globe through the windshield of a van. No one has more experience with this view than Pablo & Anna, of Viajeros4x4x4, as they've seen the globe from behind the wheel of the "Cockroach," a Mitsubishi L300 4×4 Delica van, for over 13yrs now. I've now crossed paths with Pablo & Anna 4 times in my travels, and each time I've left the encounter even more inspired from their spirit and stories of adventure. Our paths crossed recently at the WA Overland Rally and I was able to finally grab a copy of their fresh book, "Around the Globe in 10 Years," in English. Their previous books in Spanish are probably great; I'm just REALLY poor at foreign languages. "Around the World" paints vivid pictures of far away locations and dives deep into the human spirit, inspiring you to experience the "human circus" for r a more in-depth review check out: [...]In the end be sure to BUY this book!

    Dare to Disappoint: Growing Up in Turkey []  2019-12-17 21:15

    "Dare to Disappoint" was assigned to me in a college level course and it was a book I actually enjoyed reading for school! I found myself reading ahead of the assigned pages because I was fully immersed in Özge's world. Not only were the illustrations attractive but the memoir was incredibly relatable. Readers follow Özge throughout her adolescence and she has some huge decisions while numerous outside variables are affecting her choice. The graphic memoir is also educational in the method that it touches on some of Turkey's history as well! I believe this novel is a amazing one to read independently because it is an addictive read but it could also search a home in a classroom because it also provides somewhat of a history lesson!

    I loved this book. It reminded me Persepolis. It is a very nice fast read. It is mostly about growing up in Turkey but there are also a lot of content which is universal like following your dreams, going up aginst the tide, being bullied, being different, etc. I think this would be a amazing read for all ages specifically teenagers. It also provides amazing insight for tiger parents or other parents alike who might wish to think twice before forcing their children to create certain choices. After all of her struggles, it is very comforting to know that the author at the end followed her dreams and pursued her passion. The artwork and the drawings are also very original and pleasing. Huge kudos to the author.

I'm not sure that I myself have received the same emotional wallop from it that others have, but it there is small question that it captures a particular time and put in Turkish experience. Multiple individuals have said to me "this is my life"For those with connection to Turkey, it is a must-read. For everybody else, it is an insightful and pleasant introduction to a world.

    Dare to Disappoint: Growing Up in Turkey []  2019-12-17 21:15

    "Dare to Disappoint" is a captivating memoir of a girl's journey to self acceptance. Raised in war-torn Turkey, Özge seeks to meet the expectations of her parents and her country. This graphic novel is charming read that discusses the difficulties of coming of age, and growing up in a militaristic country. The author provides an accurate acc of life in Turkey during the 1980's. While I expected it to be a massive story, I was pleasantly encaptured by the lightness and quirkiness of Özge. The illustrations are whimsical and add a level of depth to this real story. I would recommend this book for middle to high school age students, but anyone could have fun this self-searching, gripping story.

    Drawn from the kaleidoscope of her private experiences tied to the larger cultural and political structures of the latest quarter of the 20th century Turkey, the book is a fine example of comic storytelling. The amount of detail work on illustrations is noteworthy.On the private side, I allow my 10-year old read the book (minus a few age inappropriate content ') and I think it helped her understand my upbringing and her heritage better. A few other children of our book club members read the book as well; all with mostly positive points of view. Emboldened by these observations, it is this reviewer’s humble recommendation for the author to venture into children’s books segment.

    This was an entertaining graphic novel because of the varying panels and the overly expressive characters, however, the storyline was slow and dull for the first half of the book. The content became more interesting and fast-paced toward the middle which created me more invested in the story. The abrupt ending was what disappointed me because of all of the tension building up until that point. It deserved a more detailed explanation of what she actually ended up doing with her life. Overall, it was visually stimulating but lacked a consistent and solid storyline.

Is it worth it? At first I was simply drawn in by the slice-of-life in a country I search fascinating but know small about, but by the end everything tied into a strong and universal message. I'll be lending and rereading this one a lot. It also ties into the theme of the novel I'm writing, so points!

    I have an 8 year old third grader, and he loves this series. It is the only book series that he's asked for me to for him. Ever. It's an "AR" book that will support him achieve points in school as well. It's done in the style of a comic strip with drawing and text. I read through some of the first pages and found it comical and representative of what a school age child might write. The only problem for him with writing the book report was he said that too a lot of funny things happened in the story. He had a hard time translating that on first he was upset that I got him the first book because he requested the recent copy. I explained to him the series has chronological order. I think the stories are self contained, but I figured it would be best for him to read it from the first story on. Anyway, when he read it, he laughed out loud numerous times! It was just a pleasure to hear that he was enjoying this book so much. He said that he can't wait to read the rest of the books in order. I'm so glad for this series, as it's sparked an interest in reading for my son. Now it's a no-brainer on what bonuses to give him as well. Couldn't be more satisfied with this purchase!

    The Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw []  2020-1-19 23:34

    In 2007, the first volume in a series of children’s books was published. It exploded onto the elementary school stage and got America’s school kids reading again. As fresh books appeared in subsequent years, kids snapped them up and devoured them. To them, it was the literary happening of the , this book series was not Harry Potter (published 1997-2007). This fresh series followed the misadventures of lazy unprincipled undisciplined middle school miscreant Greg Heffley. And school kids everywhere ate them up. While the buzz over these books eventually died down, they are every bit as amazing as when they were first released, and each fresh addition to the series remains hilarious. If your kid is a reluctant reader and/or 8 - 10 years old, definitely obtain him or her started on the first book! (While the protagonist is a boy, my kids are both girls. In my experience with my own and other children, both genders love these books.)As the title “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” implies, the books are written from Greg’s point of view. Hand drawn pictures abound on every page. The text is so clever that children, adolescents, and adults can all appreciate it. When a fresh book is released, there is a gentle war at our house over who gets to read it first. There is one illustration in the first book that was so hilarious that I laughed till I cried. (I won’t spoil it for you with details.) My younger daughter still talks about how Greg’s idiot older brother misspelled the family dog’s name on his personalized dog dish: Sweaty.Just like with Harry Potter, I recommend that you read the books in order, although each book can certainly stand alone. As I write in early 2019, here are the books currently in the series:Diary of a Wimpy Child (2007)Rodrick Rules (2008)The Latest Straw (2009)Dog Days (2009)The Ugly Truth (2010)Cabin Fever (2011)The Third Wheel (2012)Hard Luck (2013)The Long Haul (2014)Old School (2015)Double Down (2016)The Getaway (2017)The Meltdown (2018)Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to reread the books. I can always use a amazing laugh!

    Bought a fresh Kindle Paperwhite for Christmas for a 9 year old to encourage reading and this was the first book she wanted on it. The font would not change. I did chat sessions with Kindle and all the troubleshooting. It turns out the publisher has set the font and will not let kindle to override the settings. So it's very difficult to read, especially for a kid with some visual problems. According to Kindle support, most books can be changed, even when the publisher has set the font, but for some reason, this one will not let that. Not good!

    My 9 year old has been reading this series for the past year and he loves them. They were too hard for him at 7 but at 8 he really started picking them up and now at 9 he still likes to read them. He will pick one and read it in a few days to a week during reading time at home. They aren't the most challenging but during the summer it is keeping him reading so I don't mind. If you search your kid liking these books I would recommend buying several. I think we have the entire series at this point.

I believe getting into books for the joy of it lets you build imagination at all ages. We got these books for my 11 year old God kid and she loves them. These books have inspired her to move onto other books, this book set is amazing as a unisex read too, my small brother loves them too we would read every night I read a page and then he reads a page.

    The Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw []  2020-1-19 23:34

    If your children know and love Jeff Kinney's bestselling `Wimpy Kid' books, this recent installment will not disappoint. If you and your family haven't yet read these hilarious cartoon novels, allow this green-bound book be your delicious "The Latest Straw" we rejoin middle school student Greg Heffley journaling his frank opinions about school, suburbia and his own zany family. But unlike Harriet the Spy, another intrepid chronicler of daily American life, Greg's greatest ripostes are at his own expense. He cheerfully confesses to an attempt to create change from the church collection plate and also describes digging up a time capsule and pocketing the contents. (There's an especially funny reflection about the dilemma of a young man with no clean underwear except a worn Speedo and a pair of Wonder Woman Underoos.) Happily unethical, young Greg is always searching for the shortcuts in life. For example, after he signs up with Boy Scout Troop 133, he is dismayed to learn he must earn a `whittling badge.' Greg determines he can squeeze the soap into shapes instead of carving it. After turning in a soap with four protuberances as a "sheep" Greg then turns it upside down and resubmits it as "the Titanic." While Greg will never create Eagle Scout, he does remains real to himself and his fear of sharp of the best things about this best-selling series is how addictive the books are to young people, even the reluctant reader. If your kid enjoys this book, he or she will happily move on to the original, red-bound "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," ($[...]) and the second in the series, "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules"($[...]) There's also the fun "Diary of a Wimpy Child Do-It-Yourself" book ($[...]) This orange-bound book will obtain your kid to journal and respond some rather tough questions. A sample: Real or False: Have you ever peed a swimming pool?It's interesting to note that Kinney, a former college cartoonist, worked on his Wimpy Child concepts for six years before publishing in installments on [...] To date, the online ver has had more than 70 million visits. Having won a vast online and print audience, `Wimpy Kid' is expected to move to the big-screen, with a casting call now underway for the movie ver of Greg Heffley's adventures. [...]As with Charlie Brown creator Charles Schultz, Kinney's work revolves around childhood happenings like the school Valentine party, sibling rivalry, or warming the bench during the huge game. But unlike Schultz, Kinney suggests that being the underdog is not so bad. In fact, the underdog may even obtain the latest laugh in the end--or at least avoid military school.Time will tell if Kinney's works deserve to be ranked with Schultz' Peanuts gang, or with Bill Watterson's Calvin & Hobbes series, for that matter. In the short term, these books will be a rollicking, well-read addition to your family bookshelf.

    The One-Straw Revolution: An Introduction to Natural Farming []  2019-12-29 18:52

    Mr. Fukuoka has written a attractive book on the benefits of natural farming. Basically he says that what is the most necessary factor in meal production is the fertility of the soil. Amazing nutrition is dependent on a nutrient-rich soil. This book also has some of the author's philosophy of life. He states that any amazing farmer specialist needs to begin with philosophy, then incorporate the science. I highly recommend this book to anyone growing food--be they industrial farmers or backyard growing enthusiasts.

    The One-Straw Revolution: An Introduction to Natural Farming []  2019-12-29 18:52

    This book was referred to me by a Fb Permaculture group in my community. It reminds me of reading Deschooling and John Gatto's Dumbing Us Down when I started questioning education -- it is a book that came into my life when I was really ready to read it. There is a amazing wisdom to "Less is More" and the older I obtain the more I feel unsettled by technological progress. For me, Dr. Fukuoka explains why this unsettling is is a philosophical book that uses growing meal as its topic but growing is a metaphor for us, being fully human and seeking our natural state. I hate to oversimplify it, but I really believe that so a lot of of our issues are due to our denial and separation from nature and our over-dependence on science as an respond for e reassuring part for me is that when gardening or growing your own food, he reminded me that scientific intervention introduces more issues that we scramble to fix. Working with the natural system provides not only better meal but a better mind and an enjoyable life.

    Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw (Book 3) []  2020-1-25 13:34

    Reading is getting so lost today and being replaced with gaming, laptops, IPods, Iphones, Wii the list goes on. I believe getting into books for the joy of it lets you build imagination at all ages. We got these books for my 11 year old God kid and she loves them. These books have inspired her to move onto other books, this book set is amazing as a unisex read too, my small brother loves them too we would read every night I read a page and then he reads a page. TIP - NEVER EVER use reading as a punishment! They are safe fun books for all ages.

    Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw (Book 3) []  2020-1-25 13:34

    This book is exactly what I have been looking for! I bought all of the books in the set for my small brother, for Christmas, and I couldn't be happier with my find. All of the books were in brand fresh condition and the were unbeatable. I decided I had to obtain my brother the whole set for Christmas, since they are the only books that he's ever taken an interest in. In fact, not only was he interested in them, he was absolutely enthralled! From begin to [email protected]#$%!&?hink he only place book #1 down to sleep. So, I thought he just has to have the rest of them one, so that he'll hold going. I'm so glad that I found these books.

    The One-Straw Revolution: An Introduction to Natural Farming []  2019-12-29 18:52

    Masanobu Fukuoka saw what modern industrial farming was doing to the water, land and the farmers (both in terms of lifestyle and debt), and spent his life working on finding ways that meal could be grown in a non polluting, sustainable manner. After a number of years he had rebuilt the soil on his family farm and proved that he could equal or better the yields of the "petroleum farmers" with his no chemical, lazy man's method of natural farming. Although the book discusses his methods and rationale, much time is devoted to showing what is wrong with the currently famous methods of roughout the book Mr Fukuoka lament's the change in farmer's lives from a lot of years ago when there was much more leisure in the village life, whereas today they have to struggle to survive working long hours daily and still cannot obtain out of debt. Debt made incidentally by being sold a system that relies on pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, as well as huge amounts of motorized equipment. The revolving door between the chemical companies and agricultural departments in government as well as school reliance on grants from these institutions are discussed, consumerism, our fetish for perfectly formed produce, and much, much is book can be read in a short period and is written in a nice conversational manner (kudos to Mr Larry Korn for his work there as well). For me this is such an necessary book that I have given a number of copies to friends. This book will change the method you think- read it today!

    Got the book for my husband, he seems to like it fine. He's the farmer in the family. The concepts are good, but the guy who wrote it lived in Japan, and some of the techniques/crops aren't necessarily applicable here to the south in the US. That was the only criticism heard. Other than that, quick shipping, amazing job.
