Drawing AutismDrawing Autism by Jill Mullin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received my book from FirstReads in the mail today: Feb 27, 2014 It is a very exciting looking book. I can hardly wait to sit and actually pour over the drawings and descriptions!

And here it is April 18, 2015. What took me so long? Why isn’t this a 5 star rating? FONT! If it were for the artwork and the inspiration I felt from them it would be worth 10 stars! But it took me months to get through the reading part. I just couldn’t read the tiny faded gray font. There are a couple pages at the beginning which are by Temple Grandin (Forward). I really wanted to read it as I was reading/read her book Thinking in Pictures. But I found I could only read it a line or two at a time. Even with magnifying glasses, or my large magnifying page reader. It took me a long, long time! The next two pages were by the editor Jill Mullin. I just finally gave up. My eyes were hurting so much! After the torture of the first few pages, I found I could get by, a page a day. The pictures were wonderful! But, again, it was the font explaining the artist or the work that nearly killed me.

Still, I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves art and are curious about those who think differently than yourself.

I found that I will have to make this part of my permanent collection as the pictures gave me ideas I’d like to try in my own artwork. BCID: 745-13301987

Thank you, First Reads at GoodReads.com for this win!

Vitamin Deficiency - Stop Killing Yourself: Gain Control of Your Health, Diet and Save Your LifeVitamin Deficiency – Stop Killing Yourself: Gain Control of Your Health, Diet and Save Your Life by Paul Christopher

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Picked this up today. It didn’t look too long so I decided to read it now. The first problem was that is wasn’t in a good Kindle format. I had to read it in white background rather than my preferred black with white lettering. The second is that each page is so long you have to scroll down and then hit page down. And though the book is lendable and has text-to-speech, it had useful charts that don’t translate well in TTS.

Other than the technical issue, the information in the book is basic vitamin knowledge. I plan to keep this for research. It’s free today so if you are curious go check it out.
