About Me

My photo
I'm a reader who enjoys posting comments and recommendations about the books I read. You will not find a synopsis with my recommendations because you can just click on the book title for a link to www.goodreads.com for a synopsis and reviews by other readers. I prefer the 3 Reason format: the reason I chose to read it; the reason I liked (or disliked) the book; and the reason I recommend it.

The Self-Compassion Diet: A Step-By-Step Program to Lose Weight with Loving-KindnessThe Self-Compassion Diet: A Step-By-Step Program to Lose Weight with Loving-Kindness by Jean Fain
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This ebook was recommended to me by members of Eat4Health group because they discussed the book before I joined, and many continue to refer to it.
There are five parts: self-compassion; hypnosis; mindfulness; social support; and continuing education.
I plan to re-read parts of it to help me make some better habits. I recommend this book to all readers.

Rogue LawyerRogue Lawyer by John Grisham
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I borrowed this ebook from my local library because it was available when I learned to use the Libby app with my Kindle. I have almost given up reading books by Grisham because I was disappointed by the last three books by him for not being the page-turners I expected them to be.
I could give this one another half star.

Surrender the WindSurrender the Wind by Rita Gerlach
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I downloaded this ebook to my Nook library when it was free in 2012. I like historical fiction. I was disappointed in the characters as they seemed to be stereotypes who went from one crisis to the next.
I recommend it only to fans of the author and this genre.

Fire Ice (NUMA Files, #3)Fire Ice by Clive Cussler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was given to my home library by my uncle and aunt who passed it on after reading it. They know I enjoy books by Clive Cussler. This was the first Kurt Austin novel I read.
I enjoy these adventure stories and the wise-cracking heroes.

  All My Friends Are DeadAll My Friends Are Dead by Avery Monsen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I downloaded this in order to try the Libby app. It is a phrase I often hear from my father.
It is a picture book for adults but I have difficulty recommending it to other readers because I do not want to trivialize feelings of others.
