Headstrong: 52 Women Who Changed Science-and the World by Rachel Swaby

Miloš continued story of a traveling book from Brno-Kohoutovice, Brno, Česko

As I was reading the book, I kept imagining how would Shift the monkey look in a movie. I came to the conclusion, that it would be an angry gorilla or something from the new Planet of the apes :D. Also I thought a lot about the separation of talking and "dumb" non-talking animals. The Narnians befriended the talking ones, but killed and ate the others. They made this even with the members of the same species. How would we humans behave if this happened in our world?
 
I have to say, I ...

Anne continued story of a traveling book from Boston, MA, United States

I heard about this book a few years ago from a friend in my book group. I purchased a copy and dove into reading it. This book changed the ways I looked at things and the way in which I moved through my days. It helped me to change my attitude from complaint to gratitude. Gratitude for big things, small things, and seemingly unimportant things. My gratitude is still a work in progress certainly, but I am grateful for this book for pointing me in the right direction.

The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan
traveling book
Johanna released new traveling book from Albuquerque, NM, United States

I heard an informal interview with Amy Tan on "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" and was sold on reading one of her books. This one tells the stories of 4 second generation women whose mothers came from China. Told with a respect for tradition and an appreciation for trying to understand where we come from as well as what has shaped us (and our parents).
It was heartbreaking to see some of the stories unfold, secrets and stories that had been kept for years, or merely never shared because they were ...

The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan

Johanna released new traveling book from San Diego, CA, United States

A classic.  A name that you've probably heard.  A name that sounds similar to "The Bridge Over the River Kwai"...

Indeed, that was what seemed so familiar when I bought this book.  My dad frequently spoke of the other bridge.  I was slightly confused when I read that it was a love story and not a World War 2 story.

Guess it pays to pay more attention when you buy a book, huh?

Shattered Dreams: God's Unexpected Path to Joy by Larry Crabb
traveling book
Johanna released new traveling book from San Diego, CA, United States

I found this book on a sale shelf at Page One Bookstore in Albuquerque, NM.  I found that it was first published in 1987 and was a new Irish writer.  The book is a collection of short stories that shed light on women living as "second-class" citizens.  I didn't get a chance to read it, but took it to San Diego where I left it.  I hope that someone will find it and carry on the story.

Ruth released new traveling book from 3532 Miskolc, Magyarország

This book was given to me by a dear friend and mentor. It is like a rich delicacy to be savored slowly. So many favorite quotes...but here's just a small sample: "A late June night peering into the expanse of heavens nailed up with the named and known stars. A moon field. I hardly dare brush the limitlessness with my vaporous humanity." I'm passing this on to a friend who is a hospital chaplain here in Miskolc, Hungary. She is leaving for Boston tomorrow where she will minister at the funeral of ...

Miloš released new traveling book from Brno-Kohoutovice, Brno, Česká Republika

I will leave this book at some interesting place here in Brno. I really liked it, although it is was very hard for me to read since I am not a native english speaker.


My favorite quote from the book. My interpretation is, that by our lives, by everything we do, we shape the destiny of the whole humanity. Therefore it is worth sharing our stories and books with other people.
