More Miscellaneous Material (Maybe Middling, Maybe Magnficent)


How to Play Blues and Blues Rock Guitar by Guitar World and Andy Aledort.

Beginning Hard Rock and Heavy Metal by Guitar World and Andy Aledort.

Music on CD

Shine by Martina McBride. Good Looking Gal sings modern country.


Nothing But Trouble by Susan May Warren. PF Sugar returns home to Kellogg, MN for her sister's wedding. This is PJ's first visit in ten years and she is sure her best pal's husband is not a killer.

Why do I bother? Is anyone reading this? I'm paying more attention listening to the Fratellis album than doing this anyway.

Home Safe by Elizabeth Berg. "A beautifully written and richly resonant story of a mother and daughter in emotional transit...widowed...loss and grief...meddling...unsolicited and unwelcome advice...shocking discoery...double disappeared...unusual call from a stranger...path of discovery...sexual experimentation."
I made that last one up.

The Confession by James Patterson by Maxine Paetro. I'm betting Paetro did all the heavy lifting on this one. "Women's Murder Club tracks a killer with a taste for the super-rich."


Wisconsin Barns by Nancy Schum-Burgess. When you get sick of Jerry Apps' Wisconsin books take a look at all the neat photos in this one.

AudioBook on CD

Chosen by Ted Dekker. Horror novel.

What to Read 24: Poetry by Mark Kraushaar

Local writer Mark Kraushaar just won the 2009 Felix Pollak Prize in Poetry from the University of Wisconsin Press. UW Press just published his winning collection entitled, Falling Brick Kills Local Man. We, of course, have a copy at the Library.

I have a brief discussion about poetry with Mr. Kraushaar and he reads three of his poems. I had to edit out over five minutes of discussion so ignore any odd transitions.
