Who is Jaime Pressly?

 

 

It's Not Necessarily Not the TruthI’ve been walking past a book on the new bookshelf for a couple of weeks now, and I just can’t help but look at the cover and smile.  It has this adorable little blonde-haired girl with a sweet little sugar-coated smile that makes you feel warm and sunny inside.  (I do have to confess though that at first I thought it was one of those good-girls-who-turned-out-to-be-murderers type of books. Glad I was wrong!)

Are You a Dummie or an Idiot?

For DummiesI’m a Dummie!  I love using the For Dummies series of books whenever I need to learn about a new topic.  I’ve also on occasion used the Idiot’s Guide series.  (I don’t believe you are what you read!)  But, when it comes to learning about computer-related topics, the choices are even greater.

Photo Books

The AmericansMy head always turns when I see a photography book sitting face out on a shelf. It’s probably a throwback from when I was little and only liked books with pictures. But now I can appreciate “picture books” with more grown-up themes. The latest one I’ve come across is a re-issue of The Americans by Robert Frank with black-and-white pictures from the 1950s. The faces of the people and the moments Frank captured are sometimes comical, sometimes haunting. Most of all they give you a picture of who we Americans were not so long ago.
