Anticancer by David Servan-Schreiber (Other)
A powerful argument [backed up by scientific studies] for the cancer fighting properties of certain foods and the role of diet and lifestyle in the explosion of cancer in the 20th & 21st centuries. The author, a scientist and doctor who developed brain cancer himself, while undergoing traditinal Western cancer treatment, searched for the changes he could make in his own health to understand and fight cancer using the body's own natural cancer-fighting capabilities. -- Added by nkennedy on 03/06/2014

An Echo in the Bone
An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon (Other)
I made a mistake and did not start from the beginning of the series. The book was way too long to get to the uneventful ending. -- Added by Jean F on 03/03/2014

The Bughouse Affair
The Bughouse Affair by Marcia Muller & Bill Pronzini (Other)
This book was a quick, fun read. The authors are husband & wife, mystery writers of their own series, who have teamed up for this story of a pair of private detectives in 1894 San Francisco. The detectives are former Pinkerton agents who have formed a partnership. The story starts with a search for a pickpocket and a housebreaker targeting San Francisco's wealthiest homeowners. The plot expands to include murder and (maybe) even Sherlock Holmes. I hope to read the next in the series, The Spook Lights Affair. Entertaining, enjoyable characters, and lots of insight into what the city was like in those times. I had fun researching the 1890's slang! (Look up "bughouse" in the dictionary!) -- Added by ElizabethR on 03/02/2014

The Queen's Rival
The Queen's Rival by Diane Haeger (Other)
I loved this book. I have read many novels about the court of King Henry VIII and his various love affairs, but this one gave a very different insight into the story of Bessie Blount, the mother of Henry's first son. It depicts a softer side of Henry while still showing his ruthless side. I recommend it. -- Added by Sanibel on 03/02/2014

The Ocean at the End of the Lane
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman (Other)
Another great read from Neil Gaiman; enjoyed it. Hard yo quantify as to whether it is truly YA or 'grown up' material, but maybe that's just because I still live in both ZIP codes. And maybe that's the point of this book? -- Added by Cabin Boy on 03/01/2014

Longbourn by Jo Baker (Other)

The Vanished Man
The Vanished Man by Jeffery Deaver (Other)
This was the second time we have listened to a book in the Lincoln Rhyme series. The books work well in the abridged audio format, enabling you to listen but not miss your exit on the highway, especially on a long drive home from vacation. In this story, the criminal used illusions to hide his identity and repeatedly escape the scene of his various crimes. There were enough twists and surprises to make it interesting. Rhyme, his girlfriend, Sachs and the other supporting characters make a good team. -- Added by dabell on 02/25/2014

Insurgent by Veronica Roth (Other)
Hmmm....I was a huge fan of Divergent, but a bit disappointed in the second installment. I felt there was constant tension and it felt more like High School drama than a team working for a common goal. Not interested in reading the third installment. -- Added by Spetzie on 02/22/2014
