Anasazi Mysteries #03: Bone Walker by Kathleen Oneal Gear
Anasazi Mysteries #03: Bone Walker

Taynb, December 13, 2009

Third in the series, good book. There is gore, mayhem, revenge, found love, lost loves, found relatives, traitors, & more: all in a parallel story. A satisfying end to the trilogy and a great read.

The Summoning God
The Summoning God

Taynb, November 14, 2009

It is an enjoyable follow up to The Visitant and it was nice to read more about the characters, of the past and present. Through the mysteries of uncovering the past and the stories of the past people intertwine even more in this book, every page seems to make you want to read just one more page to see whats going to happen next. Must read series.

The Ghost Map: The Story of London's Most Terrifying Epidemic -- and How It Changed Science, Cities, and the Modern World by Steven Johnson
The Ghost Map: The Story of London's Most Terrifying Epidemic -- and How It Changed Science, Cities, and the Modern World

Taynb, October 10, 2009

I thought that this was a thoroughly enjoyable book to read. It wasn't too dry and Steve Johnson made reading about the 1854 Cholera epidemic in London a page turner.
I would really suggest this to anyone who loves to read this type of book.

A Great and Godly Adventure: The Pilgrims and the Myth of the First Thanksgiving by Godfrey Hodgson
A Great and Godly Adventure: The Pilgrims and the Myth of the First Thanksgiving

Taynb, July 26, 2009

An interesting tale on how the Pilgrims made their way to Plymouth. Also on what happened on the 'first thanksgiving.' No pies or turkey on the first dinner. But it does go through the history of after the Pilgrims celebration, including the first Thanksgiving football game in 1893, the era that tends to having Thanksgiving float between several different dates (instead of a fall harvest celebration). The beginning of Thanksgiving as a start to Christmas shopping. A good read.

Round Ireland with a Fridge by Tony Hawks
Round Ireland with a Fridge

Taynb, March 18, 2009

I loved this book. It was a mixture of funny, sad, and the weird. I couldn't stop reading this book and not sure if I could do it on a bet for 100 Pounds! But love how Tony Hawks gets a major following as he goes around Ireland. A must read.
