The Book of Joe

Anyone who is a fan of Joe Biden will love this humor filled enjoyable read.  What starts out with his childhood and continues right through his Vice President days is a wonderful, intimate portrait of real man and his ups and downs. A fast fun entertaining read.  I highly recommend this book!

This book was given to me free of charge in exchange for a fair and honest review from blogging for books.

A Well-Crafted Home

I recently read through a copy of A Well-Crafted Home by Janet Crowther. What a delight!  This DIY book for your home is gorgeous.  The photos are inspiring to say the least.  Each project is unique and directions are for anyone's skill level.  So many creative ideas in one stunning book.  It's a must have and I can't wait to share it with my son and daughter in law for their new home.

Q & A a Day for Grandparents

I am not sure exactly what I was expecting but this is a much different approach to keeping a journal for your grandchild.

The format of a small paragraph each day for 3 years seems a bit overwhelming at first.  My first thought was that most grandparents don't spend every day with their grandchild.  After more reflection I realized that this might be something to do once your grandchild is a bit more than an infant.  The thought provoking questions will give you starting points.  What a great way to reflect on your relationship with your grandchild over 3 years and beyond !!

Say Yes to the Holiday Cookies

The ultimate Holiday Cookie Book has arrived.  My favorite part of the book is that it uses normal easy to find ingredients. There are color photos on every page and my daughter and I struggled to decide which ones to make first.  You will LOVE adding this to your cookbook collection.

Deal or Duel - For History Buffs

My daughter-in-law is a big history buff.  I knew this game would appeal to her.  Since she works in the history department at the local college she was super excited to take this to work and play with the students. I know it will get tons of use there! Great Idea !!

White Fur

White FurFrom the description I was hoping for a story I could dive into and travel to another time and place.  I struggled thru the first few pages and wasn't interested.  I set it down.  Read another book.  Willing to try again, I started from the beginning again.  Still I could not stick with it.  Sometimes a book just isn't your style.  This wasn't mine.  I will share with my little free library readers.
