They Loved to Laugh
I just got this book, and I read it in a few hours. It was awesome. It is a story about an orphan girl, Martitia, who goes to live with a Quaker family, the Gardners, when her parents die. This family has five rollicking boys (Jonathan, Milton, Clarkson, Barzillai, and Addison) and one girl (Ruth) living at home. Through her first two years with the Gardners, Martitia learns many things, ...

!!One of my favorites ~ Absolutley Loved this book!!
This book is one of my favorites, I happened to come across it looking for a Nicholas Sparks book before I went on vacation. I ended up coming across this and it was such a blessing! I couldn't put the book down. It was such a great story. It was just as good (if not better than) than some of the Sparks books I have been read. I hope to see more books from this author soon ~ I lent a copy out ...
Love Starts with Elle
Writing at its best!
This is a charming story of a free-spirited artist and a high-powered lawyer turned single father who are both trying to find their way after heartbreak. I loved this book. Rachel Hauck's writing is fun and vibrant. Elle is sassy, and her vulnerability comes across as endearing, not at all pathetic. The characters are realistic and likeable. There were several twists in this book that kept it ...
Options for North Carolina coastal highways vulnerable to long term erosion
John R Stone
North Carolina State University, Center for Transportation Engineering Studies
one of the best ever
with eliot, a maximum of content is achieved through a FORM worked with a care and conciousness not seen perhaps since the greeks. he understood, as he once wrote, that the novel form ended with flaubert. in the centuries after picasso and stravinsky there is no place for anything in literature which makes people remain sitting, whithout standing and perhaps dancing. the same thing could be ...

The old man and the boy (Crest book)
Robert Chester Ruark
Great Story of a Day Long Past
This isn't knock-your-socks-off stuff and that's what many in our society seem to seek today to keep them reading. But readers need to slow down, realize that some books can be savored for their wisdom, their content, their calm sense of adventure. I grew up in North Carolina where this story is set, and so, perhaps, I could identify with it a bit more than some. However, my grandfather was a ...
Forced-air cooling (AG)
M. D Boyette
N.C. Agricultural Extension Service
Compelling and original arguments and a fresh analysis of America's black & white race relations
I just finished this book, A Simple Justice, and it is fantastic. It's the story of Brown vs. The Board of Education of Topeka, which is the landmark Supreme Court case that desegregated compulsory public schools in America. But it's so much more than that. After reading this book, I felt almost ashamed of my previous ignorance to the struggles and condition of black america at the hands of ...

The Color of Love: A Mother's Choice in the Jim Crow South
The Lyons Press
Love conquers All!!!!!
What a riveting story of an era that I, too, was born into but on the other side of the fence than Gene Cheek. It makes me so sad to realize that I had the same sentiment as all the "rogue" whites because I was also taught to dislike those that looked different. And in my town the only ones that were 'different" were the less fortunate blacks. I am sorry for my generation and my race that this ...
The Dog Diet, A Memoir: What My Dog Taught Me About Shedding Pounds, Licking Stress and Getting a New Leash ...
A great, fun book!
I loved this book! I really enjoyed reading it and I got some great dieting ideas (and life perspectives). For example, I am now implementing her idea of having a salad box. Actually, I have two of them that are about the size of shoeboxes that I bought for $1 each at the 99cent store. Now, as soon as I buy my salad veggies, I clean them, chop or remove whatever leaves I need to, and put them ...

Chicago Review Press
How did I grow up in South Carolina and not know about this book!
This is a fantastic book that describes, in detail, what it must have been like to live as a woman in Charleston during the Revolutionary War. Many others here have provided plot synopses, so I wont be too redundant. Having majored in History in college, I do remember thinking at one point during my reading "Why does she have food? The soldiers would have taken that to supply the army". Next ...
