Title:  The tao of Martha : my year of LIVING, or why I’m never getting all that glitter off of the dog 
When I read the first review of this book, I wasn’t too interested in reading it, as it seemed to have the potential to be seriously annoying. The book is actually better than that, but not by an awful lot. The author basically decides to spend a year of her life asking, “What would Martha do?” and proceeding to follow Martha Stewart’s rules and principles. The book is occasionally humorous, with a sprinkling of seemingly gratuitous four-letter words. It also made me wish I had as much time on my hands as the author seems to have.

Title:  The possibilities 
The Possibilities, by the author who wrote the novel that became the Academy Award-winning film, “The Descendants,” is the engrossing story of a woman in Breckenridge, Colorado, whose son is killed in an avalanche. As she copes with her grief, surprises surface – and they don’t seem to be good ones. She finds out disturbing things, and then has to deal with a mystery girl who pops up out of the blue and immediately insinuates herself into the family. The Possibilities is an easy read and compelling story.
