Suburban Safari: A Year on the Lawn
1.  Suburban Safari: A Year on the Lawn by Hannah Holmes
The list author says:
  "Highly entertaining. Read book cover to cover. Enjoyed the author's life style on 1/8 acre older home in South Portland, Maine. Freedom lawn. Too bad about Cheeky the Chipmunk."

Buffalo for the Broken Heart: Restoring Life to a Black Hills Ranch
2.  Buffalo for the Broken Heart: Restoring Life to a Black Hills Ranch by Dan O'Brien
The list author says:
  "South Dakota Ranch which was only scraping by with cattle. Switched to buffalo. Had to buy/build a lot of expensive fence.  Great writer. Will buy his buffalo meat. Found the easy killing hard to believe. He says they shot the buffalo from a distance, an inch behind the ear and they just lay down dead without even affecting the rest of the herd. Nevertheless, Broken Heart Ranch has a great heart."

Goat Song: A Seasonal Life, A Short History of Herding, and the Art of Making Cheese
3.  Goat Song: A Seasonal Life, A Short History of Herding, and the Art of Making Cheese by Brad Kessler
The list author says:
  "Found out two things: Goats are fun; goats are hard work. When one of their goats gets sick it requires lots of care and then months of massage. They eat a lot of goat cheese, which I like, but must have a lot of calories, too. I want to go the Vermont and  drink some raw goat milk."

Twenties Girl: A Novel
4.  Twenties Girl: A Novel by Sophie Kinsella
The list author says:
  "Great Book. The "Twenties Girl" is both a girl in her twenties and a ghost from the 1920's. One of my favorite Kinsella novels. It is entertaining, amusing and has great characterizations."
$11.83   Used & New from: $0.01

Shopaholic & Sister
5.  Shopaholic & Sister by Sophie Kinsella
The list author says:
  "Another favorite Kinsella novel. I never read these books because the covers looked so low-rent stupid, but they are page-turners, witty, and funny. In this one, Becky finds that she has a half sister. But the half-sister is basically Becky's opposite--a frugal, hiking geologist. How will they ever make friends?"

Disaster at the Pole: The Crash of the Airship Italia
6.  Disaster at the Pole: The Crash of the Airship Italia by Wilbur Cross
The list author says:
  "Exciting story of survival and death set in late 1920's as crews from several countries try to rescue the victims of an Italian dirigible crash on the north polar ice. Politics of Italian fascism interfere and the whole thing is a tragedy of errors. Never explains why the fascists were against General Nobile."

Ten Degrees of Reckoning: The True Story of a Family's Love and the Will to Survive
7.  Ten Degrees of Reckoning: The True Story of a Family's Love and the Will to Survive by Hester Rumberg
The list author says:
  "Saddest book I have ever read. I wish I had not read it. This was a story of death and the worst thing that could happen to someone. It was well written. I have no complaints against the author. It will haunt me and I am already haunted enough."

Polar Dream: The First Solo Expedition by a Woman and Her Dog to the Magnetic North Pole
8.  Polar Dream: The First Solo Expedition by a Woman and Her Dog to the Magnetic North Pole by Helen Thayer
The list author says:
  "Absolutely one of the best adventure books or dog books that I have ever read. Helen Thayer is a brave, skilled, kind woman. Charlie the dog was as lucky to end up with her as she was to get him.

I expected this book to be a slow read, but I could not put it down. It caused me to stay up late reading. More comments in personal log."

Three Among the Wolves: A Couple and their Dog Live a Year with Wolves in the Wild
9.  Three Among the Wolves: A Couple and their Dog Live a Year with Wolves in the Wild by Helen Thayer
The list author says:
  "Also a very entertaining non-fiction book. Charlie, Helen and her husband set up camp for several months near a wolf den in northern Canada. The wolves are loving to each other. Ravens help the wolves find prey. Further north Helen observes ravens, wolves and polar bears sharing kills. At one point a bear seems to kill a seal for the wolves."

Live to Tell: A Detective D. D. Warren Novel
10.  Live to Tell: A Detective D. D. Warren Novel by Lisa Gardner
The list author says:
  "Stupid book. Did not learn anything useful. The only good parts were the main detective's sexual fantasies. She was funny. Plot made no sense at all. Scary kids. Hopefully my junk book jones has been satisfied for a while."

The Story of Edgar Sawtelle: A Novel (P.S.)
11.  The Story of Edgar Sawtelle: A Novel (P.S.) by David Wroblewski
The list author says:
  "Book sucked. Author could not write his way out of a paper bag. Reason: plot made no sense. Copied Hamlet. Never like Hamlet. Wasted a lot of time reading this book. Liked it when Edgar left with the three dogs; when he met the man with the sunflowers. Waterspouts on, the book fell apart. Author did not let his characters lead the story. Forced them into the Hamlet plot. Ending was a waste."
