Written in 1882, Life on the Mississippi is a product of its time but we need this because it shows us where we come from, hopefully getting better but not always. This is Twain's history as well as a history of steamboats, the Mississippi River, and the growth of the U.S. I enjoyed Twain's telling of the history of the Mississippi and steamboats. I enjoyed his reminiscences of his time working on the boats as well as him going back years later and going through the changes to the river and the towns along the river as well as the men he knew then. I liked the Native American stories he told. I liked his cynicism and tongue-in-cheek humor as he tells his story. Worth reading today as it tells a time that has passed.
Selena Kitt is one of my favorite erotica authors. She writes good sex. This is the series of women loving women. I particularly enjoyed Pool Party, Moms' Night Out, The Hairdresser, and Sybian Sorority. These are hot and steamy.
Classic love poems you read in high school from Barrett-Browning, Browning, Poe, Emerson, Marlowe, Shakespeare, and others beautifully read by Richard Armitage. I enjoyed hearing the poems read aloud. I remembered them all from school.
| Harper finds dead people and can tell how they died. Called to Sarne, Arkansas to find a body she then goes on to find that several dead people related to the body she was called to find did not die they way their death certificates said. Now she is involved in finding out what happened to these people and she may not make it out alive.
Good world building. I read this fast. It was so intriguing. I wanted to find out what was going on and how it all fit together. I liked Harper and her brother Tolliver. They also have an interesting back story. The characters in this book were odd. None really wanted Harper around but are forced to deal with the consequences of what she tells them. Old wounds are opened and there is lots of scandal in this small town. Look forward to reading the next book.
How to prepare tacos for dragons or you could have an unhappy dragon. And do they like you or your tacos?
Fun story on how much dragons love tacos and how you must do them for the dragons or you will have some mighty sick dragons which I know I don't want.
The consequences of giving a pig a pancake to eat. It is messy but the pig fixes that.
Enjoyable story where children can follow a response. There is logic there but mostly enjoyable illustrations for them to follow as they follow pig through the pages.
In April 1986 the Los Angeles Public Library central branch had a fire that destroyed much of its inventory. We did not hear about it since Chernobyl happened at the same time. So much was lost. I liked how the book was set up. She talked about the fire and the investigation into it. She spoke of the current librarians and the fire's affect on them. The history of the library was interesting as was the arson investigation. I had goosebumps as she described the fire and cried with the librarians. I found it fascinating how much was saved and the preservation of it. This is a book for everyone.
