New Release Tuesday

SELF HELP


Dr. Amen is all about keeping your mind in shape; now he's going to help you get your body in shape. Janet's all about self esteem, while screenwriter Tracey Jackson takes an often humorous look at the truth about aging for women.

NEW AGE

James Redfield of The Celestine Prophecy and The Tenth Insight goes two better with The Twelfth Insight.

EASTERN RELIGION
Vietnamese Zen Master and best-selling author Thich Nhat Hanh tries to help us get a little Zen into our busy lives.

MYSTERY


A political/medical thriller from Michael Palmer, and the latest contender to try to topple Steig Larsson from his perch as king of Swedish thrillers.

MEMOIR



One from the great Joyce Carol Oates, which has had some really good pre-pub buzz, and one which, well, just sounds weird to me (a mix-up at the fertility clinic knocks Carolyn Savage up with somebody else's eggs and she decides to carry to term and then give the baby to his biological parents).

GENERAL FICTION


Historical fiction from Michelle Moran and Sparksian melodrama from Robert Barclay.

CURRENT EVENTS


You watched it on TV, and you cried. Now you can cry all over again.

YOUNG ADULT


Angels and death. Angels and death. Coincidence?


Have you reviewed any recent releases? Link up your review below (I especially need your help this week, since I was too tired after fielding questions all day about when my store would be closing to do my homework and link up any reviews myself).

Your store better not be closing!

There was a great writeup in the Sunday L.A. Times on Joyce Carol Oates' memoir. Hope you caught it.

This is a good list. I didn't realize Joyce Carol Oates has written a memoir.

I recently received the Stylish Blogger Award and I am passing it on to you. I really like the design of your blog as well as the content. Here's the link: http://akindleinhongkong.blogspot.com/2011/02/wednesday-dim-sum-stylish-bloggers.html

LOve, love Thich Nhat Han. His words are deceptively simple, and wise ones to live by. Following you now. Led here by CM Villani.
