Book Roulette – France

One of the greatest benefits of reading is that you get to see the world through someone else's eyes. I've made it a goal this year to read and review a wider variety of stories. I have reviewed books written in a few countries other than the U.S. in the past but, I would really like to pick the pace up on that a bit this year. So, I figured the best way would be to use a random place generator and wherever it dropped me is where I would pick a book from.

Great Kids Books For Cheap!

As a single income family with two children, it's sometimes hard to find the money to get my kids the books I'd like them to have.

I know I'm not the only one trying to raise readers out there so here's a list of affordable books just for kids.

Book Review “Dan Alexander, Pitcher – Bottom of the Ninth” Jean C. Joachim

Fed up with cheating women, Dan Alexander, star pitcher for the New York Nighthawks, grew restless. Searching for something more than a bar babe, he zeroed in on a girl in the stands. He never expected to see a beautiful chick pushing frankfurters. But the hot dog girl looked as smokin’ as the food she was selling. Holly Merrill found a place to hide in plain sight, as a vendor at Nighthawks’ stadium. Keeping her secret safe and simply happy to stay alive, she never considered finding love an option. After all, a bad girl doesn’t deserve a decent guy, does she? Coming off his best season ever, Dan went into the playoffs, hell bent on winning the pennant and playing in the World Series. But could he maintain his focus on the field, where everything was going right, when off the field everything was falling apart?

Book Review “Moonstone Beach” Linda Seed

"Moonstone Beach" is what I would call the perfect beach (or poolside) read. Each character is like someone you know (or wish you did). Cambria sounds like a beautiful little town and the camaraderie of those who inhabit it brings a coziness to the story.

Seed writes her characters lovingly. From Kate's inner circle to those who skim it each encounter is written with the aura of love. It's clear that these characters hold significance to Seed and her love for them will bleed to the reader almost from page one.
