The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver

In 1959, Nathan Price, a fierce, evangelical Baptist, takes his four young daughters, his wife, and his mission to the Belgian Congo -- a place, he is sure, where he can save needy souls. But the seeds they plant bloom in tragic ways within this complex culture. Set against one of the most dramatic political events of the twentieth century -- the Congo's fight for independence from Belgium and its devastating consequences -- here is New York Times-bestselling author Barbara Kingslover's beautiful, heartbreaking, and unforgettable epic that chronicles the disintegration of family and a nation.

Gone, baby, gone!  Thanks Kiersten!

Look Away, a novel by Harold Coyle.

In this Civil War novel, the motif of divided loyalties between brothers is made even more poignant by the fact that the young men are victims not only of historical circumstances but also of the unscrupulous political ambitions of their cruel father. James and Kevin Bannon have always been close. Their tyrannical father, a belligerent New Jersey businessman, takes advantage of his sons' tragic predicament and the accidental death of the girl they both love by sending them away. James goes to the Virginia Military Academy and Kevin enters a Northern college. Both find love, friendship, and self knowledge as they go their separate ways, and both are caught up in the events of the tumultuous times. Alternating chapters follow each young man as he experiences the horror and futility of war as well as the cohesiveness of men in battle. In a suspenseful, heart-wrenching climax, the brothers are reunited at the Battle of Gettysburg.

My hubby bought this book, but he is *gasp* not a reader, so he never even read it. I am not into civil war stories, so here it sits.

Okay, So I don't have a Headache

Cristina Ferrare shocked the country--and herself!--when she revealed something very personal on her live talk show, Home and Family: that over the last few years, she had experienced a lack of sexual desire. Her revelation prompted appearances on Oprah and Dateline NBC, and she began to receive letter, calls, and E-mail from hundreds of women who told of their own experiences and were desperate for more information. They, too, were going through a loss of libido and were glad to know they were not alone.

Dazzle
Author: Judith Krantz

A successful photographer's career and private life are rocked when an unexpected tragedy leaves her battling her father's vengeful ex-wife and her half-sisters' machinations.

"Captivating. Krantz's latest tome... is her most erotic yet. Dazzle sizzles." -- Daily News, Los Angeles.
Now, Judith Krantz, best-selling author of Scruples, Mistral's Daughter, and Till We Meet Again, invites you into the luscious, monied world of Jazz Kilkullen, her most daring, provocative, impetuous heroine yet.
"Deliciously sexy." --Cosmopolitan.
Inside the fun-filled photographers' studio in California known as Dazzle, Jazz Kilkullen reigns supreme. At twenty-nine, this playful, gifted, and thoroughly sexy woman has become one of the most successful celebrity portrait photo in the world.
"Enjoyable... Jazz is one of the most likable free souls to emerge from the novel industry." -- The Pittsburgh Press.
But her charmed career and her dashing private life, which includes three fascinating-and fascinated-men, are rocked when an unexpected tragedy leaves jazz to battle her father's vengeful ex-wife and the machinations of her half-sisters. At stake is the Kilkullen family ranch, a three-billion-dollar paradise of unspoiled California land that developers all over the world would do anything to possess... and Jazz will do anything to protect. Absolutely anything.

Christie Todd Whitman's biography.  I bought it when she was Governer of NJ and still have it. 

The Horse Whisperer.  I think everyone at PBS already has it on their shelf!

I seem to be the only person who's ever entered this book into PBS. It's instructions and recipes for home wine makers.

 

Update: It went away! Thanks!

WOW THAT WAS FAST!

Here's another that is in great condition, but not the type of book  I want  on my bookshelf, but may be your "cup of tea". It's true crime.

"The Shoemaker"

Lord of the Rings Trilogy. My favorite books in the whole world, but it's time for them to find a good home. I've offered deals, but I guess everyone has them.
