The Lamb's Supper: The Mass as Heaven on Earth
Doubleday Religion, 2002
Enlightening take on The Book of Revelation and also on the Eucharist
This book was suggested as extra reading along with a Bible study at a church. The study was entitled "The Bible and The Mass". Everyone that had gotten hold of a copy of "The Lamb's Supper" thought it was great. My husband didn't go to the study but read the book after I said how wonderful it was. It was the first time I had gotten an explanation of the Book of Revelation that seemed to make ...
Where Is Baby's Birthday Cake?: A Lift-the-Flap Book (Lift-The-Flap Book (Little Simon))
We purchased this to prepare our grand-daughter for her first b-day. She loves the sparkly cover, the lift-the-flaps, and especially the ending. I wish the last picture had matched the cover and been more attractive...
A Celebration Of Sex: A Guide to Enjoying God's Gift of Sexual Intimacy
Thomas Nelson, 2002
A must read for all Christian couples
Wow! This book is outstanding. It provide readers with the best of secular knowledge, evaluated through the lens of Scripture. It dominates all of the other available Christian titles. Everyday topics such as concrete suggestions for improving communication are covered, as are more major concerns such as various sexual dysfunctions. The book is notable in that it provides a seamless ...
Celebration Of Discipline - 25th Anniversary
HarperCollins e-books, 2004
Celebrating the basics of the Christian walk
There are plenty of reviews about Richard Foster's book, The Celebration of Discipline. I thought I would just add my ten cents worth as I have taught a course using his book as our text for the last 15 years. I am always amazed by the response of the students. Most have grown up in the church or been involved in para church groups, but they say they have never considered the seriousness of ...
Happy Birthday to You!
Random House Books for Young Readers
Really Great Book :)
We just got this book for our 3 year olds birthday. My husband read it to him as soon as he got up so it would start off his birthday (since he wouldn't get his present until after my husband got home from work). BIG hit! He loved it and still loves it :)It is a longer Dr Seuss book, be warned! It isn't as quick a read as say, cat in the hat.
The Witch of Blackbird Pond
Houghton Mifflin, 1958
Great book for young girls
I was shopping for gifts for my nieces, when I came across this book. I remember reading it when I was 9 or 10 years old. I enjoyed it then, and am sure my 11-year-old niece will now, so it went in my cart. It should be noted for those concerned either way: THIS BOOK IS NOT ABOUT WITCHES OR MAGIC IN ANY REAL WAY. That noted, it is a great book for the audience for which it was written, and an ...
My 10 yr old daughter's review.....
What do you think it would be like to have your eleventh birthday happen eleven times in a row?! Amanda and Leo know what it feels like! 11 Birthdays is about a girl named Amanda and her ex-best friend, Leo and how their eleventh birthday keeps on repeating! They have to break the enchantment so it will be Saturday--but how? This book is a twist of mystery and friendship. The author is Wendy ...
Captured by the Light: The Essential Guide to Creating Extraordinary Wedding Photography
New Riders Press
A Must Read!
This is one of the ones to have. Some of it I know, but the way the books was done made it interesting and engaging to read. I seriously learned something when I saw how the author applied composition in different ways. This is an outstanding book, and I highly suggest buying it.

Firefly: Still Flying: A Celebration of Joss Whedon's Acclaimed TV Series
You can't take the sky from me...
"T'was a time no one knew 'bout this little corner of the 'verse. Then appeared a man by the name of Joss Whedon to spin it's tales..." Those are the opening two sentences from my review of Firefly - The Complete Series, on iTunes. I wrote that review four years ago and hope that it's spawned a whole new legion of Browncoats. Just as I hope this review, keeps some of those very same ...
Fancy Nancy: Heart to Heart

Counting Kisses: A Kiss & Read Book
Still a favorite after all these years!
We've had this book since our daughter was a baby. She is almost 5 now and still LOVES this book, as does our 3-yr-old son. They laugh all the while getting kisses from head to toe (especially the belly button!). Of all the books we've owned over the years, this is one of the few that I know they enjoy every time we read it.
Digital Wedding Photography: Capturing Beautiful Memories
The best reference for wedding photographers.
I have read many, many books on wedding photography, and this is by far the best and most comprehensive book on wedding photography ever written. It takes into account that you already know how to operate your camera, and are a skilled photographer already, it then takes that skill and shows you how to apply it to this specific profession. It looks at all styles, and methods. If you are ...
Happy Birthday, Little Pookie
Robin Corey Books
One of our favorites!
We just got this for our daughter's 3rd birthday because she absolutely LOVES all the Sandra Boynton books. This is definitely one of our FAVORITES!! A great book.
This book is a page turner and certainly is in keeping with Fern Michael's reputation as a riviting story teller. And the ending is fantastic! I am sure I will read it again. It has become part of my permanent library of books worth reading more than once.
Birthday Monsters! (Boynton on Board)
Workman Publishing Company

My toddler loved this book! Anything by this author is worth purchasing if you have a baby or toddler that appreciates being read to.

I Like You
Houghton Mifflin Books for Children
Book was in perfect condition, although it did take longer to arrive than I had hoped.
Brookes Global Pte Ltd, 2007
Must read for all horror fans
First let me say that I wanted to review the unabridged version and couldnt find it on Amazon. Bram Stoker's books was writtten in the late 1800's so some of the text my require a look into the dictionary. It is by no means unreadable. I think even a young teen would have no problem with it. I had to look a few words up but so what I expanded my vocabulary a bit. If your not sure just go to a ...
