It is on my Kindle. I've Kindle-loaned it to a friend, and when she's done with it another friend wants to Kindle-borrow it, but when she is done, I can always Kindle-loan it to you! It is a fast read, it only took me like 2, 2½ hours ... and that was with interruptions.

16The Zombie Autopsies: Secret Notebooks of the Apocalypse

by Steven C. Schlozman, M.D.

 

--This is an amazing read. I have never come across a piece of zombie fiction that goes this in depth into the pathogenic reasons behind zombiism, but given that the author is a professor at the Harvard School of Medicine, it is no wonder he takes this tact and discusses (fictionally) what it would take, physiologically speaking, to turn a human into a zombie. It is a truly chilling book, one of the best zombie books I have ever read. Up there with World War Z.

New Rules of Lifting for Women:  Lift like a Man, Look like a Goddess

Quote:
In The New Rules of Lifting for Women, authors Lou Schuler, Cassandra Forsythe, and Alwyn Cosgrove present a comprehensive strength, conditioning, and nutrition plan destined to revolutionize the way women work out. All the latest studies prove that strength training, not aerobics, provides the key to losing fat and building a fit, strong body.  This book refutes the misconception that women will “bulk up” if they lift heavy weights. Nonsense! It’s tough enough for men to pack on muscle, and they have much more of the hormone necessary to build muscle: natural testosterone. Muscles need to be strengthened to achieve a lean, healthy look. Properly conditioned muscles increase metabolism and promote weight loss—it’s that simple.  The program demands that women put down the “Barbie” weights, step away from the treadmill, and begin a strength and conditioning regime for the natural athlete in every woman.
 

 

 

I'm feeling very plateaued as to my workouts, looking forward to trying this program.

 

Kingdom Keepers III:  Disney in Shadow

Quote:
With the adventures set forth in the first books now behind them, Kingdom Keepers 3: Disney In Shadow follows the five teens, Finn, Philby, Willa, Charlene, and Maybeck as they search to find Wayne, their mentor and head Imagineer who has mysteriously gone missing. Concerned Wayne has been abducted by the Overtakers—Disney villains, who along with other Disney characters, take over the parks when the turnstiles stop spinning, and want desperately to steer the parks to a far darker place—the five kids pick up a major clue from a close friend, Jess, whose dreams (nightmares, really) often accurately predict the future.  The very few clues from Jess’s dream lead the kids into Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot--through imaginary worlds that become real, by imaginary kids who are real.  Each clue seems tied to the last, and with the stakes growing ever higher, what starts out as a puzzle ends up as a fight for their lives. Through a transparent paper box, a quest for a sword, rides on Soarin' and Maelstrom, life-and-death encounters with giant snakes, and a devious Maleficent, the Kingdom Keepers not only begin to decipher deeper meanings to the clues, but discover new truths about themselves and their ever-growing friendships.

Oh, that would be fun!  Thanks!  Sadly, our $79 Kindle is broken already, and my husband just bought it for me for my birthday in December.  The screen is all f'ed up.  He can't find his receipt of course.  I keep telling him to call Amazon and see what they'll do.

The lifting weights one sounds interesting!  I used to lift weights in high school and college as part of my work out.  I could bench 100 pounds at one point!  I was pretty proud of that.  :)

Let me know if and when, I'm always happy to lend out Kindle books.
