New comment on Rock'n learn phonics. , Vol. I & II http://catalog.hmcpl.org/cgi-bin/koha/opac-detail.pl?biblionumber=311177#comments

Conroe, TX : Rock'n Learn, 2001 . 2 sound discs (1 hr. 35 min.) : 4 3/4 in. +.

Tiffany La'Shay Collins commented on 02/04/2019: This Phonics CD and book follow along is phenomenal! The music is great but my son does not like to listen to the CD so I listen to the explanations on the CD and I simply go over it with my son using the book. I have been looking for a phonics book that thoroughly covers a wide range of topics such as this book does. This book is awesome!

New comment on Me, the mob, and the music : , one helluva ride with Tommy James and the Shondells / http://catalog.hmcpl.org/cgi-bin/koha/opac-detail.pl?biblionumber=181703#comments

By James, Tommy..

New York : Scribner, 2010 . vii, 227 p. ; 24 cm..

Daniel Lambert Spiegelberg commented on 01/10/2019: Great read for someone interested in the performers of this generation of music (60s and 70s). Even though I liked Tommy James and the Shondells, I didn't realize all the hits they produced. Unlike similar authors, he doesn't glorify drugs but does admit to use.

Daniel Lambert Spiegelberg commented on 01/10/2019: Lots of good history about Jefferson and Madison. Also has limited discussion about the three others of the first five presidents. I had trouble getting into the book at the beginning.

New comment on Go, dog. Go! / http://catalog.hmcpl.org/cgi-bin/koha/opac-detail.pl?biblionumber=22780#comments

By Eastman, P. D..

1989 . 64 pages : 24 cm..

Mary Dubose commented on 08/15/2018: This book is terrific for first time readers, and I dare say even good as a confidence booster for not so first time readers - you know, those who can read fairly well but may slip ever so often. It's full of simple words, with slightly challenging words here and there, like "again," "over," and "those." It is a looong story, but that's actually helpful because you are able to break up the book in sections. You can work on comprehension. "Now what happened the last time we read?" Check it out, even buy it.

Mary Dubose commented on 06/27/2018: As a first book for my child to practice and build his reading skills, it was just fine. My child was excited that he was able to read a book! Best to practice sight words, like "and" and "the," prior to reading this book, as well as blending.

New comment on Red madness : , how a medical mystery changed what we eat / http://catalog.hmcpl.org/cgi-bin/koha/opac-detail.pl?biblionumber=286091#comments

By Jarrow, Gail,.

2014 . 192 pages : 26 cm.

Camille J Sommer commented on 06/22/2018: Fantastic book that reads like a mystery. Reminds me of "All the President's Men" in that we know that the mystery has been solved, that we may even know the answer, but what was the investigative process? Great way for anyone to see the connection between science and literature, and to see how some assumptions about a society and its people can lead to incorrect conclusions.

New comment on Engineers of victory : , the problem solvers who turned the tide in the Second World War / http://catalog.hmcpl.org/cgi-bin/koha/opac-detail.pl?biblionumber=238908#comments

By Kennedy, Paul M.,.

New York : Random House, 2013 . xxvi, 436 p., [16] p. of plates : 25 cm..

Darren K Reed commented on 02/22/2018: I thought the book was going to cover the details of technologies of WWII. He even stated that the book was not to cover the general strategies. However, the book just superficially covers the people who developed the weapons or equipment - then jumps back into the strategies ?? The book probably tried to cover too many facets of the war. Disappointing.

New comment on Year of no clutter : , a memoir / http://catalog.hmcpl.org/cgi-bin/koha/opac-detail.pl?biblionumber=343360#comments

By Schaub, Eve O,.

2017 . xxviii, 290 pages : 21 cm.

Jay Webb commented on 01/30/2018: I thoroughly enjoyed this book and actually read the whole thing, cover to cover, AND I did it within about a week. That's quite unusual for me. I find the subject matter interesting, but what really made this an outstanding read is the writing style of Eve Schaub. She really had me tickled many, many times while reading. I just couldn't get enough of the story and had a hard time putting it down. Ms. Schaub's sense of humor might not be for everyone, but it was right up my alley. Interestingly, Ms. Schaub references Marie Kondo and HER book, "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up", which, even MORE interestingly, I just happened to pick up at the same time as THIS one. It was right there on my shelf while I was reading "Year Of No Clutter"! Cool! I've read Ms Kondo's book before and found it had a tremendous amount of value to me. There is some profanity in "Year Of No Clutter". I'm thinking that if I'd known that before reading, I might not have taken the time to read it because of my personal stance on that kind of thing. To be fair, the profanities are not rude or vulgar, just exclamations, mostly. I'd prefer a read without them, but I just want to warn you...it's there. Despite the profanity, it's a great story, full of laughs and full of self-awareness on the part of Ms. Schaub. I'm glad I read "Year Of No Clutter". I'll be awfully tempted to pick up her previous book, "Year Of No Sugar" and I expect it will be just as entertaining, and I wouldn't be too surprised if I learned a thing or two.

2016 . 517 pages (large print) ; 23 cm..

Comment on 10/16/2017: I usually read romantic novels but since I joined a book club I'm forced to go out of my comfort zone. This one caught me by surprise! Suspense and twists throughout. The beginning is not that great but it gets interesting pretty quick. I wonder if author has a second one coming as this one left me pondering. :-)
