Archetype by M D Waters
Archetype

njcur, July 15, 2014

I like the tension as the main character tries to figure out what is happening. It moves along at a good pace. The solution is surprising yet inevitable. Archetype is obviously setting you up for a sequel. I'm not sure that I am interested enough to look for the next book. I'm glad I read it. I have lots of patrons at the library that will enjoy it.

Stubby the Dog Soldier: World War I Hero (Animal Heroes) by Blake Hoena
Stubby the Dog Soldier: World War I Hero (Animal Heroes)

Great introduction to a heroic dog. Wonderful illustration. It is good to have nonfiction titles available for our younger readers. Get them started early reading true stories. Lots of young boys will really like this one. An excellent choice for our selective readers.

Richard Scarry's Best Story Book Ever by Richard Scarry
Richard Scarry's Best Story Book Ever

njcur, July 5, 2014

I recommend this book all the time. It is a wonderful book for a child to grow with. It has everything from the alphabet and colors to easy reading stories to bedtime stories to read to the little ones. Good to carry everywhere for those times when the kids are getting cranky. Lots to occupy their busy minds.

Fun book. The old switched roles idea, well executed. Good laughs and a happy ending. I enjoyed it a lot. Quick, light read. Good summer beach read.

The Answer to the Riddle Is Me: A Memoir of Amnesia by David Stuart Maclean
The Answer to the Riddle Is Me: A Memoir of Amnesia

njcur, January 29, 2014

I have handed this to my husband to read because I need someone with whom I can talk about it. It is an amazing story. Nice short chapters that drew me in immediately. I was astonished at some of his choices. This really causes one to question what makes us who we are? It is quite a journey. I am grateful that Mr MacLean chose to share it with us. Thank you to edelweiss.abovethetreeline for giving me a copy to review. It will be a great addition to my library's collection.

I was surprised to see that Rayna Gellert had written a song based on MacLean's experience. It is on her new CD. Apparently they are friends. Small world!
