Barbara of Stray Thoughts feels that Ten Words to Live By: Delighting in and Doing What God Commands by Jen Wilkins is one she will revisit regularly. “Jen devotes a chapter to each of the ten commandments. She argues not for a letter-of-the-law merest obedience possible, but for an expansive obedience of the spirit of the law. She employs Jesus’s explanation that the law doesn’t cover just outward action, but our hearts.”,

[DISEASE]

Strange Bedfellows: Adventures in the Science, History, and Surprising Secrets of STDs bY Ina Park is , “an informative, interesting, and often witty examination of the history, science and stigma related to sexually transmitted Infections and sexual health.” Shelleyrae @ Book’d Out recommends it to, “…a range of audiences, from the idly curious to those working with, or raising, teens or young adults.”

Deb Nance at Reader Buzz has high praise for A Swim in a Pond in the Rain: In Which Four Russians Give a Master Class on Writing, Reading, and Life by George Saunders, “As I read A Swim in a Pond in the Rain, I found I am taking a class on the Russian short story, a class on how to write, a class on close reading; a class on the meaning of life. I am in the hands of a master.”
