Book Review No. 44 - Reincarnation Blue by Michael Poore

Everyone welcome, I hope you are enjoying the site. I know its mostly been book reviews lately, I hope to remedy that soon.

I couldn't put this week's book down. "Reincarnation Blues" by Michael Poore is a witty, humorous story of a man named Milo who's lived nearly 10,000 lives. If I believed in reincarnation, this is how I would imagine it. Each life is supposed to teach a lesson, and ultimately, people are supposed to achieve a "perfect" life. Milo, has lived more lives than any, and yet he still hasn't received perfection. His afterlife is also complicated, as he is involved in a forbidden love.

Updates - What's been going on medically? Esophageal Manometry

Welcome, grab some tea and sit a spell. Let me start by saying this is an update post, so if you aren't interested in my on-going health-care issues and what not, you may want to just skip this.
It's been about 9 months since all of my medical issues have started, and I would love to say they finally figured out what is wrong with  me, but unfortunately that would be a lie. I think they are getting closure, so fingers crossed.

Book Review No. 43 - The Witch's Book of Spirits by Devin Hunter

Welcome back to the blog. It's been a little bit, but I've got some work done outside of cyberspace, so that is exciting.
For this installation of Book Review Tuesday I finished "The Witch's Book of Spirits" by Devin Hunter. Let me first say this book is packed with a lot of material, and would serve as a good reference book.

Book Review No. 42 - Magical Power for Beginners by Deborah Lipp

Well hello there! Welcome back to my little blog, thanks for taking a gander and I hope you find something interesting. Not a whole lot is going on right now, just trying to stay cool in the heat. I've been listening to a lot of AFI, Alkaline Trio and Charlotte OC. If you've not checked out these artists, you really should.

It took me a little while to finish this week's book, but in no way is that a bad thing. Deborah Lipp's book "Magical Power for Beginners" is excellent. I can honestly say if you are new to this topic, this is a perfect place to start. Lipp covers a whole range of topics, some I never even thought to explore, in a very approachable manner.

Book Review No. 41 - The Silent Corner by Dean Koontz

Well hello there! Come and sit a spell, if you are looking for a good book to read, I have some recommendations on the site.

This week, well just actually today, I finished "The Silent Corner" by Dean Koontz. This is a great cerebral thriller, and I have to say Mr. Koontz is always a good read. He is one of my all-time favorite authors, I've been reading his books for probably almost 2 decades now. As a teenager, I even wrote him a letter condemning him for killing one of his characters. He was ever so polite to reply back, which I never expected!

Book Review No. 40 - Llewellyn's Little Book of Psychic Development by Melanie Barnum

Welcome back! I've been busy reading, enjoying the early summer sunshine and watching way too much TV. I'm still in medical limbo, being bounced between specialists for my stomach. So, although I'm unable to do basically anything that involves walking or standing for more than 5 minute, I'm trying to stay on the positive!
 
This little book was really a nice read, and I really enjoyed how Melanie Barnum approached psychic development. Her book "Llewellyn's Little Book of Psychic Development" is filled with easy to read tips on how to expand your psychic abilities. Now, as a tarot reader, I've a pretty open mind about this sort of stuff. If you don't have an inclination towards psychic abilities, well then this isn't a book for you.

Book Review No. 39 - The Evolution of Beauty by Richard O. Prum

On the road again, we are on the road again! In my head, I am singing that to myself. This week, we are spending time in Akron, Ohio. While the hubby works, I am taking full advantage of our suite at Holiday Inn Express. The weather is glorious gloomy NE Ohio weather, so I'm also enjoying that. My husband isn't such a fan of the gloom, but I actually miss it now that we live in Central KY. 

I finished this really well-written science book by Richard O. Prum, "The Evolution of Beauty". The book, obvious by the title, is about the evolution of beautiful (or costly) traits in organisms. Prum is a professor of ornithology at Yale University, and also head curator of vertebrate zoology at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History. So, this man knows what he is talking about.
