The complete idiot's guide to impeachment of the president
The complete idiot's guide to impeachment of the president by Steven D. Strauss (1990s)
Being old enough to remember this spectacle the first time around, the book was a rehash. the author seemed a bit biased in the "everyone lies, only 1 got impeached for it" mode of the moveon.org crowd. Basically, if you were around for it the first time, with the media overload, there was not much new here. -- Added by sg0307 on 03/07/2014

This is a Bernie Rhodenbarr murder mystery with shades of Agatha Christie's settings and plots. It has interesting characters and the murders are piling up. A fun book to listen to. -- Added by thebooklistener on 03/05/2014

Mao's Last Dancer
Mao's Last Dancer by Li Cunxin (1990s)
I loved this book!!! A window's view of one lucky boy's journey through Mao's China (beginning with the marriage of his parents in the 1940's and on through his retirement from professional dancing 1990's). It is so hard to imagine living with communism and coming out on the other side all the stronger for it. -- Added by Coco on 02/28/2014

Jim Morrison of the Doors by Tom Davis (1990s)
Interesting biography of Jim Morrison of The doors and the incredible! unusual life he lived in the limelight. I knew virtually nothing about him before and learned a lot. Through I read this book in a weekend it is pretty long (over 400 pages) and at times seems a little too detailed describing his concert performances and how he did, but I learned a lot about someone new for me. -- Added by Macbarclay on 02/28/2014

Attachments
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell (1990s)
Love in the information age... this is chick lit and humor, which are both genres I rarely find to my taste. The author overcame my prejudices with characters I enjoyed spending time with and rooting for! -- Added by AnnRaymont on 02/27/2014

Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove
Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove by Christopher Moore (1990s)
This is not my normal reading, but I am glad I read it! Oliver Wyman does such an AMAZING job narrating this book!!!! He is able to give each and every character life and presence while he reads. This story was completely insane and outlandish, but it was hilarious, fast paced and enjoyable. -- Added by TruBlu on 02/26/2014
