Some books I enjoyed in 2010

Beth Oljace
 
Meadow Grass Tales of New England Life
Meadow Grass Tales of New England Life
"Alice Brown wrote regional (New England rural) fiction in the 19th century.  These stories teem with quirky characters and wry observations."
She Shoots to Conquer (Ellie Haskell Mysteries)
She Shoots to Conquer (Ellie Haskell Mysteries)
"Dorothy Cannell's Ellie Haskell novels are antic and funny.  The THIN WOMAN is probably the best, but this one, which takes place during the filming of a reality show, is a lot of fun."
Dancing with Max: A Mother and Son Who Broke Free
Dancing with Max: A Mother and Son Who Broke Free
"Charles Colson's daughter Emily's story of life with her autistic son Max.  Reading this will make you think twice about being unkind to anyone."
Conversion (Abingdon Classics)
Conversion (Abingdon Classics)
"A great book on what becoming a believer in Christ means.  Love the sentence:  In Christ all is opportunity."
Children in the Night
Children in the Night
"Strange saga of life in a lightless world."
"Tell Me a Riddle" Tillie Olsen (Women Writers: Texts and Contexts)
"Tell Me a Riddle" Tillie Olsen (Women Writers: Texts and Contexts)
"Great short stories.  The title story is as good as short fiction gets."
Death Wears a White Gardenia
Death Wears a White Gardenia
"A murder in a department store in financial trouble calls upon young store detective Mary Carner's wit and wisdom.  Great period stuff--Read it if you can find it."
Arundel
Arundel
"Wonderful historical novel about the attempted invasion of Canada from Maine during the Revolution."
Pomfret Towers
Pomfret Towers
"English house party novel from the 1930's.  The aristocracy as I'll bet they wish they were.  This is a good read."
War and Peace (Oxford World's Classics)
War and Peace (Oxford World's Classics)
"Try it if you haven't read it.  It's surprisingly easy to get through and it's an absorbing story about life during the Napoleonic invasion of Russia."
Reunion: A Novella
Reunion: A Novella
"The friendship between a Jewish doctor's son and a German aristocrat falls apart under the growing pressure of Nazism, but there's a surprise twist."
Veeck--As In Wreck: The Autobiography of Bill Veeck
Veeck--As In Wreck: The Autobiography of Bill Veeck
"Good books on baseball abound, but this one is something special.  Veeck was a general manager and owner of several teams and his observations on the game and how it should be run are priceless."
The Murder Book of J. G. Reeder
The Murder Book of J. G. Reeder
Uncle Fred In The Springtime
Uncle Fred In The Springtime
"When the Empress of Blandings is threatened, Lord Emsworth turns to the antic Uncle Fred to help keep her safe.  Has one of the deftest endings in the whole Wodehouse canon."
