this is the  KJV, Thinline Bible, Large Print, Cloth Over Board, Black/Gray, Red Letter Edition this is the perfect bible to take with you wherever you are going . I love taking it to church and I get compliments on it always . I love the fact that I can highlight some passages and the ink does not leak through . I am quite frequently in church taking notes ad hightlighting passages and find this very helpful for my bible studys . I recommend this bible highly for anyone who wants a light portable bible . it is quite the dandy for this .

The apache wars by paul hutton

this book was a total winner for me . It starts off with the kidnapping of a boy from the closest town and then it all tumbles forward . This book emphasized the differneces between crook and his predecessors and all the ways they tried to trap the Indian tribes into being brainwashed to white peoples ways . This book goes into a lot of detail and you should get yourself a copy if you like reading about native American history and how the white  man played into it . It was really good and I enjoyed it very much .

The Hideaway

What a lovely sweet book this was . It left me in tears and not wanting it to end . You know when a book has a cover like this it has to be good and it was . I loved the charecters and I mean all of them . They were southern sweet like a good glass of ice tea with lots of sugar and lemon .I got this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review and this is my honest review .I cannot imagine being left something in a will and then finding out it is not quite what you expect and how it will effect our lives so much and how many twists and turns our lives can take in just a minute or two or maybe ten but you get the idea dear readers you know what I am talking about . Get yourself a copy and sit back and relax and read it .

this was a half way decent book for a semi romance book . Yeah I don't know why I use the word semi romance but seriously kind of a romancy book really . Not saying that the book was bad but it was just kind of too romacy sickly sweet stuff . I know I know not a harlequin girl by any means . But all in all I did like the charecters in this book and they came off as intelligent and nice and someone you could probably become friends with at least I thought so anyways . I think you should defiantely pick up a copy if you like people coming together in a small town kind of way . all in all I liked this book and the people in it .

Welcome to college

This is a great book for anyone sending teens off to college for the first time . It is also a religious based principle book . It also tells you how to deal with things that you might not have been faced with before . I really like when a book goes into depth on issues like this one did . I really recommend it to anyone who is sending their child or knows someone who is sending their child off to college for the first time and worried about how their religion will play into their college life . I know some folks at my church who are dealing with this or are going to be dealing with this very issue in the next year or two so I told them to get this book pronto and read it front to back . Really great and informative book

Trail of crumbs

I'm sorry but I did not finish this one . I did however get halfway through it . it bored me to tears and the character development was extremely poor . I wanted this book to be so much better than it was and I did not even have a fave out of this one . That is so unusual for me not to have a favorite out of any book I read . I fell asleep several time while trying to read this one . Poor , poor broken up writing as well . I think this author think choppy story lines are the way to go . I'm sorry but do yourself a favor and skip this one . It was truly disappointing .

this post is a diversion for today

Well something a lil different for today . I won this fountain pen and it came on Monday and for the life of me I don't know why I did not post about it sooner . This is an ohto fine fountain pen and the writing is abosoloutly smooth as silk and I have it loaded with noodlers polar blue which is a lovely shad of blue in my humble opinion . Not endorsing anybody here just reviewing this fountain pen . it is not heavy and it is not light . But it had a gorgeous sleek body with slanted ends on both ends . I love it and so glad I won it . It is a complete joy to write with . well that is all I can say for right now .

what a snooze fest this one was

I will tell you right now don't waist your time with this one . What a snooze fest this one was . I could not finish it . I honestly think there are far too many books in the world that are so good . Why waist your time with one that is so bad you fall asleep twice while reading it and folks that ties the knot for me . if a book is so boring you drop off to sleep while reading it then that aint cutting it for me . Don't waist your time and move on , far too many good books in the world to waist time on a bad one . Let it go . thanks to blogging for books for sending me a copy for my honest review .

The dinner

This book was deeply disturbing with all its tists and turns and I loved it . I flat out loved it . I like the charecters so much so I could write a book about each of them . what I found I did not like was how the parents reacted when they heard of the crime their sons had commited and the boys just acted like it was no big deal . The boys were ambivalent as to what they did . I think that sometimes parents when faced with a horrible thing they want to sweep it up under the rug and turn their back on it . Oh Lord please get yourself a copy of this book you will either love it or you will hate it . I'm giving it a 4 stars out of 5 because it could have gone so much further than it did , But again this is my opinion and my review .

the elusive miss ellison

this is from the regency brides collection and I wish I had realized that before I agreed to review this book . It was definitely not my cup of tea and did not enjoy this book at all . I tend to stay away from shaggy romance novels . I'm just not that type of girl I guess . If you can call someone over 50 a girl ? who knows . I felt this book would be better suited to someone who likes romance novels or can understand the mindset of a pre Victorian woman I cannot understand that mind set because I feel as though some women yet today put up with garbage from men and they certainly did in this time frame that the book is set in .Yep definitely not one book for me .

what a great book

what a delightful little book and I did not guess who it was at all . Not predictable like most I read . the lead character was funny and quirky at the same time . I truly enjoyed this book and I think you will too . I found some of the charecters delightful and funny and reminded me of some of my family members when I was a kid . Of course we never think of them funny when we are younger , Grab yourself a copy of this book and enjoy it .

what a weird book

This book was full of choppy sentences and I have never had to read a book so carefully or I might miss something . It was not a nice book it talked of a spooky ooky house on a mountain side to me that seemed like a prison . This book started out telling the story of the main charecters father and mother and it went on and on from there and I did not have the wherewithal to finish this book .Thank you to blogging for books for sending an advanced reader copy . I was very disappointed in this book but hey all of them cant be winners right ? take care all and be safe out there .

what a dark and disturbing book

what a dark and disturbing book this was . It held many deep and dark family secrets . Everyone knows secrets never stay hidden right ? Well as is this case for this book . I never saw or suspected a thing until the middle or so of the book . This is a short read just a lil under 200 pages . But what a whopper this book packed in those 200 pages . Would I say that this is a good read yes , but expect it to haunt you for a while and then some . You can give it a try . I would give this book a 4 out of 5 only because of the haunting material in its pages .

I have never read a book that so enlightened me about what is going on between a human mind and God . I think this book gives people prospective on how your mind works in religious doctrine and how some secular folks would see it . There is a very big difference . I want all of my Christian , catholic , Baptist etc to read this book . I think you will feel differently when you read this book about how your relationship with God is defined . I am going to pass this book along to my friend who is always studying the word and different bibles .

disaster falls

This book was funny and sad . I loved each and everyone of the charecters and boy it made me cry and laugh at the same time . If a book can do that , well then that is a keeper to me ..woo hoo . what else can I say about this book other than it proves that the human spirit is a very complex thing indeed . You could see the spirit and complexities of God in every one of those charecters . It mad me laugh and it made me cry and I want to say Thank you to blogging for books for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion . God bless us all and God bless the United states of America .

an okay book nothing great

this book was fairly typical as far as a mystery book goes . the carechters were okay as far as being typical as well . The plot was really good however it was pretty predictable with the ending . I thought I was going to enjoy this one far more than I did and that was disappointing to say the least . I like to settle down with a book at night but frankly this one put me to sleep well before I was ready for it . Do yourself a favor and skip this one . Not really a liker on my list .

Inherting Edith by Zoe Fishman

I absoloutly loved this book and it gave me perspective from an elderly persons view of caretakers and or people quite younger than them . The charecters in this novel are to die for and this book had me laughing one minute and crying the next . That is what makes an excellent book for me . Humor , diginity , class and realism . This book has all of that and more . I don't want to write much more about this book or I will give it away and I don't want to do that .

what an excellent book for someone who is being a caregiver for someone with alzheimers

please read this book if you or anyone you know is dealing with alzheimers . This is such an insightful book for those dealing with this issue. I know many of my friends have a family member or parent who is going through alzheimers and it is such a difficult ordeal . I cannot thank these authors enough for being so brave to publish their life now and before alzheimers . God bless them .

a great book even with the sadness .

this is one of the best books I have read all year . I loved everything about it including the sad because the sad made you root for the good to happen . I find it astounding that these places did not fully close until 1996 . And in 1993 they found several bodies of children buried on the grounds of one of these laundries . I find it so sad that all the government could do is apologize to these victims of these laundries . All in all it was a great book and I thoroughly enjoyed it .

the seven stories that shape your life by gerald kelly

this book clearly was written by a godly man who knows what gods purpose is for his life . I think sometimes people write a book with the utmost good intentions and clearly defining a path of Gods purpose for them . That being said it might not be the same purpose for our life each one of us has to know what gods plan is for us individually . I think this book gives us keys to see that . It is well written and gives me some clarity . I am also a worrier when it comes to family life , and life in general I do think . I would read this book if you are a planner and want to follow gods lead in your life . I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it was an awesome book to say the least .

the kill fee

This one was pretty good and it also had good plot , good subject and may I say when those two are combined it makes for a pretty good book . Yes I said pretty good not great just pretty good . The charecters are well developed and I find them a delightful bunch indeed . I really like poppy I find her to be a smart and well educated woman and maybe too well educated for the time period this book was set in . Most women in this time frame were housewives and mothers and anything more was not expected . However that being said , it was still a dog gone good book and I will not give away the plot . thanks to kregel for suppling a free print copy for my honest review . I'm telling you reader go out and get a copy and see how you like it .

this is a dark book

Another one I did not care for it was dark a lil too dark for me . I don't like books that make you feel like doom and gloom is about to turn every corner . I finished this book yesterday and for the whole day I was sort of depressed . The charecters are rather well developed and almost make you think you knew someone like these people from your past life . Sorry I did not have the same experience as others while reading this book . It just did not do it for me and I will tell you to give it a try for yourself .Thanks to blogging for books for sending me a copy for my honest review .

control girl was obviously not of the same faith as i am

this book was supposed to relate women from the bible to women of today and in my opinion the message was not clear in this book . Kregel sent me a copy of this book for my honest review . My honest review is this book does not get it for me and I was really surprised at some of the bible references in this book . I could not finish because a lot of it I simply did not believe seeing as how I read my bible every day , Nope sorry I'm saying forget it pass this one by ... thanks folks .

Deep Water by dr christine poulson

This book was full of twists and turns that I did not expect and I loved it cause I like books that are not predictable and you just don't know where they are going .
This was certainly one of those books indeed . I also liked the charecters in this book as well and that does not happen too often with new authors with me . What can I say I love this book and will recommend it to more reader friends of mine . Thank you to kregel for sending a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review .
