The reviews are here

All books that are reviewed are published free of charge from various publishers

Hold on to your hats guys, the book reviews are
already rolling. 3 books are on the slate for this month and
I hope to start getting the reviews posted as soon as I
can. The First review is complete and posted.
The order of the reviews will be Fiction, Non-Fiction and Family Choice.
Please scroll down to the review you are looking for!

The first book up is my choice and provided by LitFuse
who has offered to host a contest as well. It is a thriller,
detective story and those are always a blast for me.
The book they have provided is...................

Double Trouble
By-Susan May Warren

With one solved case under her belt, PJ Sugar is ready to dive into her career as a private investigator. Or at least a PI's assistant until she can prove herself to Jeremy Kane, her new boss. Suddenly PJ's seeing crime everywhere. But is it just in her head, or can she trust her instincts? When she takes on her first official case-house-sitting for a witness in protective custody-Jeremy assures her there's no danger involved. But it soon becomes clear that there is someone after the witness . . . and now they're after PJ, too.

John's pick is not really my thing but since he has to read and give and
honest review of my choices it is only fair I do the same for him. He is all
gung ho on this one for it is right up his alley, sports and non-fiction.
I can pretty much promise you he will read this watching a football or
hockey game. His choice is.............

From Peanuts to the Pressbox
Insider Sport Stories From A Life Behind The Mic
By Eli Gold

In this behind-the-scenes look at sports broadcasting Eli Gold
tells how a kid from Brooklyn, New York, went from selling peanuts
at Madison Square Garden to being one of the most recognizable
voices in all of radio sports broadcasting.
From Peanuts to the Pressbox is an intimate walk down memory
lane, reliving some of the greatest moments in Alabama sports
(basketball and football) and NASCAR. Gold also shares
stories from his early days with Yankees broadcaster Mel Allen
and Red Barber and other broadcasting greats, such as Bob Costas,
Tom Hammond, Verne Lundquist, Kevin Harlan, Ron Franklin,
and Mike Tirico.

Our last book this month is our family choice. We try to keep up
on trends, currant events and advancements in child rearing and in the
medical field. Also we are both educational nuts and try to keep that
in mind when picking books for our children or how to books to help
or inspire them. This choice we thought we be good to help them
with moral and values and just plain old faith.The last pick is............

Publisher's Description
Watch your young children grow
in their understanding of God as you
meet with him together using this One
Year devotional. Each reading pairs a
Little Blessings illustration with a short
Bible verse and devotional thought that
gets you and your child talking about the
simple truths of Scripture. A fun, rhyming
prayer completes each devotional. A great
way to get young children interacting with
Scripture daily

Michelle Says

I grew up in a deeply religious house
and this took me home but with more
softness. My family was much more
strict. The book is chalk filled with
Nano Stories that bring about good
feelings and happy thoughts.

I loved that it was written in an
easy to read format that though
it is meant to be read to kids
can easily become an early reader
for them to tackle on their own a
few years later. The verse is
prevalent for each little story
and inspiring. The story is
perfect for young attention spans
and the prayer is so simple
any child can repeat it and
take something away from
the experience.


John Say's

I did not grow up in a religious
household and do not know any
of the verses of prayers but I
though it was cute and taught
good values and is great for
teaching kids what is right
and what is wrong. It is quick
to read too so even when I am
busy I can get in a story or two
and the story's are broken up
enough and vary just the right
amount where I can read as
long as or as little as I want
to my kids without them feeling
like we are stopping at a point
where they are left hanging.
The little prayers are cool
and to the point of be nice,
be good and other little
morals parents struggle
with teaching their kids
now a days.

Andrew says

It reminds me of the story's
Grandma Great used to read.
I liked it!

* John and I will each post our reviews as we finish them so check back
often to see if they are up yet. I tend to read a little bit faster then he does so mine are posted a little faster. All reviews are honest opinions and
the only thing we are compensated for the review is a copy of the book itself.
       Having both John and I review the books and post both our opinions
gives you the unique insight of a "He say-She say" scenario. I feel this is
a great benefit to you when it comes to picking books as gifts for people
and taking that dreaded jump into another genre.
        In the future I am working on getting more children's books since
I am a published children's short story writer they hold a special place
in my heart. When we do get children's story's to review I plan on letting
my 16 year old son and hopefully my 12 year old step daughter post their
reviews as well. That was you will get the honest to goodnessopinion of the intended market and a parents point of view as well. My son also reads adult literature and when books are appropriate he will offer his opinion on those as well.
     I hope our reviews help you with your reading pleasure and if you have
any questions or need advice on a book or a gift please feel free to ask. Every member of my household is an avid reader and between us we have read thousands of titles in every category from Comic books, Sci Fi, History, Mystery, Thrillers, True Crime, Romance and on and on.
