An Entertaining Adventure

Binding: Hardcover
Spike in the City - book cover picture

The funny, bold and colorful illutrations show Spike on a new adventure in, what Spike thinks is a very strange and unfamilar place, the city. The entertaining text takes us along on his explorations. Spike finds the city can be a fun place but is happy to find his way back to Shannon. My children love Spike in the City. The expressive illustrations bring Spike to life and the story line is one they can relate to easily. It is one of their favorites. Like all well loved books our copy is worn and frayed. We all look foward to Spike's next adventure.

Promises (Sweet Valley High) - book cover picture

This book was perfect! It was very shocking that Betsy is moving to Wakefields. I hated Elizabeth in this book. Why? Because she believes that Betsy can change but in "Head Over Heels" and in "Memories" she doesn't believe that Bruce and Cara haven change. Of course Betsy have, but Liz is still a hypocrite. This book was wonderful. The beginning was sad and ending was happy. Isn't that cool?

Harry meets Abe.

Flash for Freedom! - book cover picture

This book comprised the fifth stage of my chronological survey of the live and times of our bewhiskered toady bastard and decorated servant of Her Majesty Harry Flashman. Upon being tricked during a card game Flashy has to leave the country for a while. Unknowingly, he ends up on a slave ship on its way to Africa. This episode allows Fraser to give an accurately grim description of both the actions and the mindset of the people engaged in the slave trade. Intercepted at the American coast Flashy changes identity, gets to meet Lincoln and assumes a variety of roles at different sides of the issue of slavery. After a variety of comical encounters and mounting many a wench, Flashy ends up in a courtroom drama, in which Fraser displayed a prophetic vision of future US court cases. This book is another example of Fraser's mastery in providing a highly entertaining history lesson. It's not hard to understand why Kingsley Amis read little else than Flashman novels at the end of his live.

NIV Life Application Study Bible, Large Print, Indexed - book cover picture

...P>If ever one desires to get a one-volume multipurpose Bible, this is it !!!!
Right from Bible Study, books & character study until Theology..
Real Value for Money !!It's non-denominational in approach. No worries for mainstream Protestant churches. Charismatics and Pentecostals are encouraged to acquire one such copy. Good for a balanced view on major doctrinal stuff.
I found this particular Bible very useful when preparing for one of my exam assignment with a local Bible college.Very good layouts & Neat concise write-ups too.One is better advised to purchase the large print version unless he or she has 20/20 vision.Highly recommend this for all in the laity, perhaps those from the clergy may agree too upon having looked through one such copy

Gathering Blue (Readers Circle) - book cover picture

I read the book Gathering Blue by Lowis Lowery and absolutely fell in love with it. Lowis Lowery gave so much detail and put so much emotion into her latest book. The book is about an adolesant girl who's mother recently died of a fatle desease unexpectedly. Most of the women in the village want Kira (the girl) to go to the Field Of Death because the want her living space. Which was burned after the death of her mother to stop the desease from spreading. Then Kira and the spokesperson from the group of women go to the Council of Gurdians (a group of 10-12 men who are like judges). In the long run Kira gets to keep her life and starts a job of weaving. Chelsea~

Star Wars : Thrawn Omnibus - book cover picture

There was a time almost a decade ago when SW was dead, a thing from the past, then one day passing by a bookstore something called my attention "Heir to the Empire", What's this? I wondered, and as I was reading page after page of this novel I relived the thrill and excitement and dreams from my childhood. Undoubtely this trilogy (completed by "Dark Force Rising" & "The Last Command") are as close to the original vision of George Lucas as they could have been and it is the best story of all the Expanded Universe. Now with the audiobook version I will have a chance to listen to the story everytime that I desire it. If you haven't read the books, buy this audio version, you won't regret it.

The Divine Conspiracy : Rediscovering Our Hidden Life in God - book cover picture

Dallas's provides a fundamental paradigm shift in the way one thinks about life. Begining with clarifying how we think about God and who we understand him to be, Dallas moves to the how our lives can be transformed as we "seek to live our lives, as Jesus would if he were in our place." This book clearly belongs next to Augustine, Luther, Kempis. A well worth reading. . .again and again!

My Reiview

Book title: Many Moons
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Many Moons - book cover picture

The story "Many Moons" is a great book and I would love for someone to read this book, because this book is interesting that the man that is suppose to be silly is the wise one. My favorite part of the story is when the wise men read their list of the things they had got the king. He is very lucky to get all of those things, because there are things on their lists that are amazing. I think the book is called "Many Moons", because everybody, except the king and the Court Jester decribed the moon in diffrent ways. The book "Many Moons" is a terrific book.

Fascinating 14th Century Wales and a contrast between poets

Book title: A Gift of Sanctuary: An Owen Archer Mystery

Binding: Hardcover
A Gift of Sanctuary: An Owen Archer Mystery - book cover picture

Although I missed Lucie and the apothecary motif, Owen's excursion into Wales was extremely interesting, particularly since it allowed Robb to give us the lovely contrast between the traditional Welsh bard and the courtly poet (Chaucer). As usual, Robb does her research and gives a source or two for those interested in delving into the actual history. The mystery itself in satisfyingly complex, and the soul-searching that Owen must do enriches an already sympathetic character. Highly recommended.
