Beat the Gym

Wednesday, June 22, 2011
Tom Holland

If you are interested in joining a gym this book is a must read. Tom Holland walks you through what to look for, what questions to ask, gym etiquette, how to use the different machines and my favorite part –what to do when you get there. He gives great examples of exercise routines and motivates you just like a personal trainer would. A great book for those interested in joining a gym and even the lifelong gym member.

Wednesday, July 28, 2010
B.A . Charnitsky

When Francine Spenser’s  plane crash lands in the mountains, the young business woman must find a way to not only survive, but also  save the pilot too.  She becomes very resourceful over the course of their ordeal.  This story was written by a local author from Pinckney.  It is a predictable love story, well written and a quick easy read.

Whiplash

Wednesday, July 21, 2010
Catherine Coulter

For those of you who follow Catherine Coulter, FBI agents Dillion  Savich and Lacey Sherlock are at it again in this latest thriller.  This time Savich must figure out what is causing the ghostly apparition appearing to US Senator Hoffman.  The case becomes more involved when people close to the Senator are killed.  At the same time Savich and Sherlock are working on a suspicious drug shortage at Schiffer Hartwin Drug Co. After a break-in and a murder there, things really get complicated.  Although I found the story interesting, I have to say this was not my favorite Coulter novel.

Trailback

Monday, July 5, 2010
Robert Vaughan

Todd Williams returns to Texas to take over the family ranch "Trailback" after his father's death.  He does so under an anonymous name because he plans on changing the longhorns out for herford cows.  However, he doesn't realize that the other ranchers won't " take to kindly" to the idea. This is a true western with action, a gunfighter and of course a pretty woman.  George Guidall does a great job narrating this story.  You'll laugh at some of the expressions and feel like you are watching an old John Wayne movie!  Check it out for yourself and enjoy.

State of Play (DVD)

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Russell Crowe plays an investigative reporter who is assigned to investigate the murder of a female assistant to an up and coming politician (Ben Affleck).  I found the twists and turns of the plot kept be interested and the end is a real shocker!  Well worth watching.

Taking Chance (DVD)

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

This is a true story of the journey home of a fallen soldier.  Lance Corporal Chance Phelps who was killed in Iraq in April 2004.  Kevin Bacon portrays Lt. Col. Michael Strobl who volunteers to escort the body of Chance Phelps to his hometown in Wyoming.  On the journey he experiences many moments of the mourning of strangers.  The respect shown to a fallen soldier is truly touching.  I found this to be a very interesting movie and highly recommend it to all.

Strength Training for Women

Joan Pagano

For those women looking to start a strength training program I highly recommend this book. It has great pictures with easy to understand directions for how to do various exercises. There is also a section for different exercise programs. The author tells you what exercises to do and how many reps and what weight to start with. I liked this book so much I bought my own copy!
