Step-by-Step Medical Coding, 2015 Edition, 1e by Carol J. Buck Ms Cpc Ccs-P

Not put together very well; choppy presentation, not enough elaboration on certain topics.  Difficult to find information for review.  Pictures and statements from "experts" seemed  like "filler" to make the book look more professional than it was.  There are definitely better books out there.

The Tumor: A Non-Legal Thriller John Grisham

Short and informative.  Hopefully, health insurance will keep up.  Hope for many who suffer conditions that shorten or alter their lives.

Making Beaded Jewelry: 11 Free Seed Bead Patterns and Projects

Very nice selection of projects, well drawn and explained.

Flowers and Floral Patterns: 60 Full Page Line Drawings Ready For Coloring (Adult Coloring Books) (Volume 2)

Beautiful designs to color!

book review: My Toaster Oven Mocks me, Steve Margolis

I loved this. Being different and creative is more difficult than people imagine.  I would have liked a little more detail, like did his notebook pages argue like the peas and corn?  Or did the right sleeve get mad at the left sleeve when he got dressed?  Let's hope not, because it would have taken him forever to get dressed.  Did he ever tell Nancy, his wife, about the synesthesia?

There was enough info in the book to make me more curious.  One of the characters in The Librarians tv show had synesthesia.  The book was well written and kept my attention.  Synethesia sounds sort of like photographic memory.  One way to help  memorize certain things is by their color, for me anyway.

Keep writing, great book!

Create and Crap

Create and Craft and Beadalon are both Create and Crap. Here is my letter to both companies.

I have returned another crummy product marketed by Beadalon to a company called Create and Craft. Two very tiny plastic bracelet jigs and some wire.  Who do you think bracelets of that size will fit?  A cat?  It is of very poor quality and certainly not worth the money.

I complained in chat about another poor Beadalon product, the 6-prong knitter, that also isn't worth anything.

I don't know how you got away with marketing and selling this poor merchandise all these years, but you will have one less customer buying this crap.

I am disgusted and disappointed with your company.  No wonder you have a sale once a year:  to get rid of all the crap no  one wants.

Product is of very poor quality and certainly not worth the money.  I will not order anything else from Create and Craft.  This crappy product came all the way from some company in England.  What kind of business are you running anyway?

Yours very disgustedly,

This is a great, little, succinct beginner's book on chain mail. It covers in detain tools needed, how to make maille (jump) rings, and a few patterns with diagrams and actual photos. Looking forward to reading other books in the series.  )

Book Review: Taming the Telomeres, R. N. Shapiro

This  book did not hold my attention.  It was non-cohesive; the puzzle pieces were thrown into a jumble without too much transition between events.  Dialogue did not sound natural and events, while creative, were not believable. Characters were not developed.  It seemed like the author had too many ideas at once and did not know how to make them work together.

Three Good Reasons to Request a Duplicate Passport

Three Good Reasons to Request a Duplicate Passport

A Certain County Library

I am  done with Certain PA libraries.  Pitt must be very desperate for PhD students to have graduated someone so common as the head of Certain County library.  Her ego is so large, she cannot see around it to anyone but herself.  She thinks she is the only one that works for the library.  She believes that the less fortunate people of the area have no interest in the library.  How would she know that?

I think she is like everyone around here with a little bit of power.  She just wants to lord it over everyone.  What a disgusting pig!  She also dresses like a slovenly slob.  There's poetic justice!
