My reading life by Pat Conroy( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bestselling author Pat Conroy acknowledges the books that have shaped him and celebrates the profound effect reading has had on his life. Pat Conroy, the beloved American storyteller, is a voracious reader. Starting as a childhood passion that bloomed into a life-long companion, reading has been Conroy?s portal to the world, both to the farthest corners of the globe and to the deepest chambers of the human soul. His interests range widely, from Milton to Tolkien, Philip Roth to Thucydides, encompassing poetry, history, philosophy, and any mesmerizing tale of his native South. He has for years kept notebooks in which he records words and expressions, over time creating a vast reservoir of playful turns of phrase, dazzling flashes of description, and snippets of delightful sound, all just for his love of language. But for Conroy reading is not simply a pleasure to be enjoyed in off-hours or a source of inspiration for his own writing. It would hardly be an exaggeration to claim that reading has saved his life, and if not his life then surely his sanity.?In My Reading Life, Conroy revisits a life of reading through an array of wonderful and often surprising anecdotes: sharing the pleasures of the local library?s vast cache with his mother when he was a boy, recounting his decades-long relationship with the English teacher who pointed him onto the path of letters, and describing a profoundly influential period he spent? in Paris, as well as reflecting on other pivotal people, places, and experiences. His story is a moving and personal one, girded by wisdom and an undeniable honesty. Anyone who not only enjoys the pleasures of reading but also believes in the power of books to shape a life will find here the greatest defense of that credo. From the Hardcover edition

Reaching for the moon by Buzz Aldrin( Recording )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 1,548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I Walked on the Moon. This is my journey. It didn't begin when I stepped on board Apollo 11 on July 16, 1969. It began the day I was born -- Edwin Eugene Aldrin Jr., whom everyone called Buzz. Becoming an astronaut took more than education, discipline, and physical strength. It took years of determination and believing that any goal is possible -- from riding a bike alone across the George Washington Bridge at age ten to making a footprint on the Moon. I always knew the Moon was within my reach -- and that I was ready to be part of the team that would achieve the first landing. But it was still hard to believe when I took my first step onto the Moon's surface. We all have our own dreams -- this is the story of how mine came true

8 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and French and held by 1,543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le jour de l'Halloween, des têtes de citrouilles surgissent des endroits les plus inattendus. Grosses ou petites, effrayantes ou accueillantes, cow-boys ou sorcières, bonhommes de neige ou épouvantails, elles épient les visiteurs derrière les fenêtres, se promènent en charrette de foin, hantent les champs et... accueillent les enfants en quête de bonbons! -- Un très bel album pour s'imprégner de l'ambiance mystérieuse et légèrement inquiétante qui règne le soir de l'Halloween, alors que le soleil disparaît lentement à l'horizon et que le vent fait bruisser les feuilles mortes et les herbes longues de champs au sein desquelles se dresse la silhouette de demeures en bois que l'on croirait hantées. Des aquarelles soignées donnent effectivement vie avec brio à des scènes d'automne bucoliques et envoûtantes, qui accompagnent magnifiquement le texte court et bien rythmé. Un ouvrage qui alimentera l'imagination des jeunes bricoleurs et fera frissonner les aventuriers... [SDM]
