clinklink's Comments    
Cover ArtImitation of Life - Two Movie Collection (DVD)
It would be nice to know what the other movie is. Imitation of Life is one of my favorites, but I don’t know if I’m ready to see it again. Oh well, reserve it anyway and be surprised I say!   posted Dec 11, 2012 at 8:25AM

Cover ArtThe Nutcracker [DVD]
a real crowd pleaser, but I like Swan Lake much better.   posted Oct 8, 2009 at 2:04PM

Cover ArtSwan lake [DVD]
My all-time favorite - I have to watch this several times a year just for the music alone!   posted Oct 8, 2009 at 2:04PM

Cover ArtCoppelia [DVD]
this would be fun for all ages - about a guy who falls who love with a girl who turns out to be a doll, so he goes back to his old girlfriend (who for some reason takes him back!!) - music is beautiful.   posted Oct 8, 2009 at 2:03PM

Cover ArtAlice in wonderland [audio cassette]
I listened to the CD book narrated by Jim Dale - I try to listen to EVERYTHING he narrates (Harry Potter books, Around the World in 80 Days, A Christmas Carol) - what a fun book for all ages!   posted Oct 17, 2008 at 8:35AM

Cover ArtAround the world in 80 days
by Verne, Jules, 1828-1905
I mainly listened to the CD book narrated (he's fabulous), but the book is SO GOOD!!   posted Oct 17, 2008 at 8:33AM

Cover ArtThe lucky one
by Sparks, Nicholas
I'm having a hard time being excited about anything Nicholas Sparks writes these days - they always follow the same pattern - boy meets girl, they fall in love, they have a big breakup, they get back together - he's the Danielle Steel of the male gender!   posted Oct 17, 2008 at 8:31AM

Cover ArtPS, I love you
by Ahern, Cecelia, 1981-
This is a fantastic book. The movie was not as good. They might as well have used an entirely different title - there were that many changes, additions, etc.   posted Dec 26, 2007 at 8:04AM

Cover ArtLike water for chocolate : a novel in monthly installments, with recipes, romanc
by Laura Esquivel
I hated this book, and I hated the movie.   posted Dec 19, 2007 at 7:55AM

Cover ArtLois on the loose : one woman, one motorcycle, 20,000 miles across the Americas
by Pryce, Lois
This book has inspired me to trek out on my own adventure - not like Lois, but anything is possible!   posted May 30, 2007 at 10:03AM

This book is fantastic - very funny. Best of all, it’s a fast read when you want to read a book in a hurry.   posted May 29, 2007 at 9:54AM

Cover ArtIt's okay to miss the bed on the first jump : and other life lessons I learned f
by O'Hurley, John
This book is fabulous. It will be my latest book to recommend to everyone. Very funny. Read it, that is an order.   posted May 25, 2007 at 1:07PM

Cover ArtAnyone but you
by Crusie, Jennifer
You can't go wrong reading anything Jennifer writes. This is a great book for a single woman with a dog.   posted May 24, 2007 at 8:07AM

Cover ArtTruck : a love story
by Perry, Michael, 1964-
I loved Michael's other books - this, not so much. After a while, i skipped all the truck parts and got to the rest. He is quite the story teller! I recommend any of his other books. I'd actually like to have him as a friend.   posted May 23, 2007 at 8:09AM

Cover ArtThe mammy
by O'Carroll, Brendan, 1955-
Sometimes you'll come across an author who is so good, you stay up all night reading the book. This is the first in a series of three books. This was made into a TV movie called "Agnes Browne". Read the book first!   posted May 16, 2007 at 1:35PM

Cover ArtDream when you're feeling blue : a novel
by Berg, Elizabeth
I'm a great fan of Elizabeth Berg. I discovered her after seeing a movie called "Open House" based on one of her books. I've now read them all and can't wait for the next one to be printed. If you're a fan of the WW II era, this is an especially good book to read.   posted May 9, 2007 at 12:58PM

Cover ArtDry ice [compact disc] : [a novel]
by White, Stephen, 1951-
I'm a fan and have read all the Alan Gregory novels - this is by far my favorite!   posted May 2, 2007 at 8:08AM

Cover ArtNature girl [compact disc]
by Hiaasen, Carl
You can't go wrong with any of Carl's books. The characters are people you'd want to know or NOT.   posted Apr 24, 2007 at 7:56AM

Cover ArtHats off to Hyacinth [DVD]
This series is hilarious. the series is called "Keeping Up Appearances". You must start at the beginning.   posted Apr 19, 2007 at 11:31AM

Cover ArtThe pursuit of happyness
by Gardner, Chris
It's almost as if the screenwriter only read the middle of the book - what a waste of a movie. If you must see the movie, do not read the book first. You'll be SO disappointed.   posted Apr 9, 2007 at 7:39AM

Cover ArtIn her shoes
by Weiner, Jennifer
It was the movie that got me to read all of Jennifer Weiner's books. She's a great writer.   posted Apr 4, 2007 at 3:15PM

Cover ArtThe Christmas shoes
by VanLiere, Donna, 1966-
If you're looking for a tear jerker, any of her books will fit the bill.   posted Apr 4, 2007 at 3:15PM

Cover ArtMary Poppins
by Travers, P. L. 1899-1996
If I'd read this before I saw the movie, the movie would have been a terrible disappointment. The books (there are several) are so much better!   posted Apr 4, 2007 at 3:10PM

Cover ArtImpossible
by Steel, Danielle
Sappy and predictable like most of Steel's books. I guess sometimes I'm in the mood for sappy and predictable.   posted Apr 3, 2007 at 11:11AM

Cover ArtHarris and me : a summer remembered
by Paulsen, Gary
I'm a great Gary Paulsen fan, but I'd have to say this is my favorite. Harris is a stitch!! You can't go wrong reading anything by Paulsen.   posted Mar 22, 2007 at 8:04AM

Cover ArtThe accidental florist : a Jane Jeffry mystery

by Cabot, Meg
This is the first in a series of "princess" books.   posted Feb 21, 2007 at 3:52PM

You must listen to the CD book versions. Jim Dale is the greatest. I purposely look for CD books that he reads.   posted Feb 21, 2007 at 11:21AM

Cover ArtA series of unfortunate events: The bad beginning
You must listen to the CD book version. Tim Curry is the greatest.   posted Feb 21, 2007 at 11:19AM

Cover ArtMarley & Me: Life and Love with the World’s Worst Dog
by Grogan, John
Being a self-professed dog disliker, I put off reading Marley and Me until I bought it for my sister. Warning: don't be around anyone who makes fun of you when you cry for the last two chapters. What a fantastic book! What a NAUGHTY dog!!   posted May 31, 2006 at 10:49AM

Cover ArtBody bags
by Christopher Golden
I enjoy this series. It's a shame Hennepin County doesn't have the entire series.   posted May 19, 2006 at 2:08PM
