Goonight Routines
Goodnight Moon - Margaret Wise Brown,Clement Hurd

I would want to incorporate timing into this lesson. As the story continues many things are put to sleep. I would use this book as a guide for students and learning about time. I would have students make their own clock. I would provide the materials for them. I would then have a handout that has different times on it. Starting with 5:00pm-9:00pm, I would want the students to tell me what their nightly routine looked like at each certain times. We would then talk and discuss students responses who would want to share. I would make the class move their minute hand and hour hand to what each student shared with the class to get more practice of telling time.

Love All the People: Letters, Lyrics, Routines
Love All the People: Letters, Lyrics, Routines - Bill Hicks,John Lahr
So, I'm not going to finish it, I'm not going to rate and review it.

Sadly, it started very good, with a very impressive forward by John Lahr.
I liked Bill Hicks sharp and waspy humor, and I enjoyed the written performance. At the beginning. Until it started to be repetitive.
You can read his best quotes in the Wikiquote-Summery. I had read them and loved BEFORE I picked up this book.

My main problem was how this book is MADE. I can imagine that there are not many records of Bill Hicks - a talented American comedian left us too soon - and the editors put into this book EVERY SINGLE LITTLE PIECES they managed to find. But it became tiresome to read the same jokes again and again. There were too many repetitions for my liking.

Though I'm talking here only about the book.

Not about Bill Hicks, the legendary standup comedian, whose death at the age of 32 was every bit as significant as those of John Lennon and Kurt Cobain.

Review: Quick and Easy Stress Busters by Anna Selby
Quick & Easy Stress Busters: 5-Minute Routines for Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere - Anna Selby

Initial reaction: I really loved this book for more reasons than one. It's quick to pick up, easy to read, and shows beautiful pictures of different stretches and poses to de-stress by. I use quite a few of these techniques myself.

Full review:

Three years after initially reading this book, and I still use it (as of 2016) as a go-to guide for simple stretches and stress relief poses. I first picked up Anna Selby's respective guide as a library reference and was pleased to see how it breaks down different movements that are helpful during certain times of the day, in different environments (specifically different rooms of the home) and targeting certain spots of tension in the body. It provides a great introduction to different techniques (yoga, pilates, AT, meditation, massage, etc.) that can be used to build strength and release tension, though primarily as a stepping stone for people to explore and see what's right for them.

The poses were easily to understand and in full color photographs that the reader can follow along with and try at their leisure. I tend to do the headache reliever since I get headaches during extreme weather changes and other instances, and I found it really helps me. The shoulder easer's another I do since my work tends to have me at a computer for long hours during the day. It gives you illustrations as well as step-by-step walks through each pose and stress busting technique.

Overall, it's a resource I would recommend for anyone looking for stress-relief exercises and techniques, and certainly worth incorporating in addition to other dialogues/references on the subject.

Overall score: 4.5/5 stars.

The Eat-Clean Diet Workout: Quick Routines for Your Best Body Ever (with DVD)
The Eat-Clean Diet Workout: Quick Routines for Your Best Body Ever (with DVD) - Tosca Reno I'm giving it two stars purely out of prejudice. I think that some of the exercises Reno recommends are dangerous, especially for people just starting out (step away from the Smith Machine, people, seriously) and some of the advice is just plain goofy (if you think you have big thighs already, don't do squats) and some of the advice is dangerous (wear a weightlifting belt).That being said, there's some valuable stuff here. The photographs are clear and beautiful, the explanations are clear and easy to understand, and the philosophy behind the book is excellent (strong women are healthy).
