Fantastic

One of my favorite parts of this book is the attention to detail - the liner pages are the most amazing time line. This is a great non-fiction read that showcases the lesser thought-about aspects of nature. Definitely worth a read!!
Really helpful!

This is a great guide to general shapes of American antique furniture. The drawings are very clear and the short description for each style is very helpful.

Perfect for anyone who needs to find out more details about a piece they just found, or learning about how to get into collecting.

This is an interesting book. The title is a bit misleading - it is not a field guide on insects, or a list of their amazing abilities or adaptations. While it does have amazing facts, it is a collection of short stories detailing how insects fit into people's lives and cultures.

If insects are your thing, give it a read!
A page-turner with value

I am quite thankful for these books. As with all exciting danger-and-love-packed novels teens everywhere love them - but unlike other page-turners, this series has a great message. The female protagonist is strong, brave, smart, loyal, and scrappy. These books are violent and scary, but I have heard the discussions they provoke by their readers and they are far and away more thoughtful than any discussion I've heard from Twilight. Katniss is a character for girls to look up to, and brings topics from books such as Brave New World to a current, teen level.

Such a great ending to this book and series!

This particular book, like any in a good series, makes it impossible not to pick up the 3rd. There is excellent plot and character development in this story!
