Grandkids loved it!
A simple story, simply illustrated, and my two-and four-year-old grandkids loved it! They asked me to read it to them again and again.
Dear Lilly: From Father to Daughter: The Truth about Life, Love, and the World We Live In
A must read for teenage girls!!!
This novel is an invaluable asset for young girls. Peter's experiences throughout the novel are insightful and realistic. The information gained from this novel is vital and will help prepare teens for real-life situations. As a teenager, I only wish I had a "handbook" to get me through the angst of my teenage years. Well done, Mr. Greyson!!!!
Courageous Souls: Do We Plan Our Life Challenges Before Birth?
Whispering Winds Press
I LOVED IT
After reading many many books and listening to many speakers,this book more than any other source satisfies my quest for the 'reason why we are here' more than any other. I have read it twice, have given away copies and recommend it highly. My daughter was very impressed with it as well.
The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated)
Blackstone Audio, Inc.
A MUST HAVE for Everyone!
If you have to work for a living you NEED this book. I read constantly, almost obsessively, and I had always avoided this book. It seemed too good to be true, and frankly- I actually like what I do for a living. I don't want to work just 4 hours a week. But I bought it anyway- figuring it would at least be good for a laugh. It's changing my life- again. I've read at least 200 different ...
Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea
Spiegel & Grau
I had no idea
I had never given North Korea any thought at all, other than it being some strange little country under the sway of a madman. But I picked up this book because I'm always interested in people's stories of their ordinary lives. Reading this book was a real eye-opener. It reads like a novel, and yet the truth of the situation made my hair stand on end. Since reading this book I have read 4 other ...
The Live Food Factor
Awakenings Publications, 2009
THIS BOOK MIGHT HAVE SAVED MY WIFE'S LIFE!
After being diagnosed with breast cancer, my wife, after surgery, turned to alternative medicine to stave off a recurrence. Although comprehensive, her program lacked a clear directive for a healthy, cancer-fighting diet. When we found Susan Schenck's book, The Live Food Factor, we knew we had our answer. Ms. Schenck provides a clear, understandable, comprehensive and strong argument for ...

My most treasured book from childhood
I read this book as a third grader in the seventies. I was so profoundly moved by it that I wrote a letter to the author. I got a personally handwritten letter back from her husband telling me she had passed away some years ago. His letter was so kind and appreciative, it only deepened my love for this book (and series) and helped me become an avid reader. I recommend this book to people of any ...
Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie: The Oregon Trail Diary of Effattie Campbell (Dear America)

Educational Gold Mine!
Excellent book for teaching the Oregon Trail journey! I have used this book for 4 years to teach about hardships pioneers faced while traveling west on the Oregon Trail. It gives a realistic view of life on the trail, from joys to the lose of life.
Live Oak Media
One of the best children's books ever written. I loved it, and most importantly, my son loved it. It was his absolute favorite from the age of about 1-1/2 - 3 years. Just a great book!

I highly recommend. I ...
House Rabbit Handbook: How to Live with an Urban Rabbit
Most Informative Pet Rabbit Manual I've Read
Very informative, and an essential must-have book for anybody who has a pet rabbit. I've had pet rabbits since childhood, and due to the lack of knowledge that many veterinarians have of exotic animals (such as rabbits), I've found it imperative to have a good, detailed house rabbit manual lying around. I have four of them, and this is my favorite one. This book covers such topic as: preparing ...
Natural Hormone Balance for Women: Look Younger Feel Stronger and Live Life with Exuberance
This book really should be rated 100 STARS
I've read 13 other books on Menopause, and this is really the only one I needed to read. After searching and reading for 6 months I finally found a doctor (in my area) who knows what he is doing. Know what he said? HE SAID TO BUY THIS BOOK and read it `cover to cover' and keep it on hand as a reference. This book IS THE BIBLE ON MENOPAUSE with full instructions on how to learn to read your body. ...

Good stories are timeless
I bought this book for my 11 year old grandson and he loved it. He thought the story about Homer Price and the Doughnut machine was the best, but of course we had previously visited Krispy Kreme, and saw their machine, and sampled their doughnuts. I read this story many years ago and have read it since as part of a Read Aloud session.
Signals: An Inspiring Story of Life After Life
Neale Donald Walsch
New World Library
"Signals" An Amazing Story, A MUST READ!
I would like to share with the readers my experience with this book "Signals". For quite some time, i have had unexplained psychic experiences (signals) with my loved ones that have passed on. I wasn't quite sure why i was receiving signals until i read Joel's book. It was like a light bulb went on, the BIG AH HA! Everything seemed to make sense. I even wrote to Joel, and we've become great ...
Rex: A Mother, Her Autistic Child, and the Music that Transformed Their Lives
What an awesome TRUE story of a mother's unconditional love for her child. I recommend this book to any mother of a child with disabilities, be they physical, emotional, etc. This mother is an inspiration to keep fighting for your child, even when others didn't know what to do with him/her. Rex is also an inspiration!
Secrets of the Zona Rosa: How Writing (and Sisterhood) Can Change Women's Lives
An Exhilarating Experience
When you pick up a copy of Secrets of the Zona Rosa, better pick up two or three extra notebooks and a box of pens or pencils because you are about to start writing. It's hard to imagine not getting itchy writing fingers while reading the intriguing titles in the table of contents: "We are all doors until someone slams us," "If I was really wild," and "If I thought like a guy." Rosemary ...

love this book
As a librarian I absolutely love this book. It is beautifully illustrated and wonderfully told. The lion steals the how and gets what he justly deserves in the end.
Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse (Live Oak Readalong)

This laugh out loud, heart-warming book is fantastic. There is this little mouse named Lilly. Lilly loves school. She even acts like a teacher to her little brother, Julius. One day Lilly came to school very happy. She brought something very special and her teacher doesn't like it. Lilly keeps a purple plastic purse and she wants to bring it to school. Honestly my favorite part when she teaches ...
Life Is a Verb: 37 Days to Wake Up, Be Mindful, and Live Intentionally
My own 37 days
I read a number of the preceeding reviews and then bought 2 copies of "Life Is A Verb" in mid-January of 2009. My sister's birthday was coming up, and I sent one copy to her with the suggestion that we read it in tandem, sharing thoughts via e-mail. She didn't like the idea, and within a few weeks I had my very own 37-days experience--I was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer. "Life is a ...
