Book Review The end of Mae By Angela Yuriko Smith

The End Of Mae

This is a very interesting short story about a journalist who is after writing the story of the century regarding the Jersey devil. Little does she know that she is about to take a journey that will change everything for her and life as she knows it.
This story had so many twists and turns you just can't put it down. It sometimes reads like Edger Allen Poe's short stories yet with a modern flavour all its own.
The end of Mae is creepy, spooky and utterly unique,the author weaves a tale you will not soon to forget.
Since I really can't go into to much detail for fear of spoiling the story for you,Ill just say that the end of Mae is a really worth while read for anyone who is a fan of Poe, Koontz, or Bentley Little.

Book Review Beyond All Measure By Dorothy Love

Beyond All Measure (A Hickory Ridge Romance)Beyond All Measure by Dorothy Love

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really loved Beyond all measure it has everything in it to really gives you a feel of the antebellum south. Ada Wentworth's character is is so realistic and genuine that you really cant wait to see how she will end up handling everything thats thrown in her way.
Beyond all Measure is a very romantic story and also a very uplifting story. Beyond all Measure helps us see the need for forgiving people in or passed that have hurt us before we can truly be able to love the way we should. Its also a study in finding your faith and trusting God to lead you to those green pastures in spite of how much you may think you know whats best for you.
anyone who is interested in how the south was in the aftermath of the civil war will love Beyond all measure . I'm so happy I got to read it

CRAFTERS Homemade Simple has a place to sell your stuff

I just got this in a email- You can sell or buy homemade items on Homemade simples new store. Its called the Homemade Simple Market place and I thought with all the crafters blogs I have seen, this would be of interest to some of you. This link will take you to the info on their face book page.

Homemade Simple Market Place

BEWARE Amazon Allows Expired supplements to be sold

I always buy from amazon with the gift cards I get for doing surveys and when A product has 180 great comments I usually don't look at the fine print much as I figure they must be reputable dealers. Well I got taken and I'm not happy.
I bought some digestive advantage supplements with my amazon gift cards I checked the formula I wanted and the feedback looked good but I did not read the fine print stating that the product being sold expired 3 years ago in 2008.

I complained to the seller and they just gave me a line of Hooey that stated I should have read the full description etc and that the expiration date is just a guide line and the product should still be good.

well I was not even aware the it was legal to sell expired things on any platform. these cost me 23.98 in gift cards and I had to kick in money for postage but I really needed them for my digestion problems, so I went ahead and got them. now I'm stuck with 90 expired pills that may or may not still work. I'm real mad at them but they will not refund my money and basically told me I'm stuck with them... so if you buy supplements off amazon or anything that caries an exp date be sure and check it first because apparently selling this kind of thing is OK to do .

Book Review The inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck

I received a free copy of this book through blogging for books
I received an advanced readers copy from blogging for books

The Inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck by Kathleen Y'Barbo

I have to say this was a very nice fun summer read that was a load of laughs.

Charlotte Beck is a very different kind of turn of the century woman. she is always doing unconventional things that do cause some grief to her family. Charlotte, most wants to attend college so she can have the smarts to take over for her father and grandfathers business but because of her latest escapade that caused her to look reckless in front of her peers in London her father insists she marry.

His hope is that it will settle her down and help her become the proper 1880s lady she should be. At the same time, Charlotte meets Viscount Alex Humbly and though they do not exactly hit it off, Charlotte has a plan that will get her to college and also help out the Humbly's terrible financial problems.

This story is filled with fun and laughs as Charlotte proceeds with her plans and hopes for the best. The one thing she did not count on is Alex coming to love her and really want to keep this marriage even though Charlotte so wants to be rid of through annulment. Charlotte most want to be her own free agent and not have to be told what to do by anyone including her father. Charlotte see marriage as just a different way for her to be controlled and she is not having that.

Throughout this story Charlotte learns how to follow her faith and the faith of her inconvenient husband who seems to be taking his marriage vows a bit to seriously for her future plans. Daniel Beck, Charlotte father keeps a close eye on his daughters progress and hopes with all his heart she will stay in a marriage she is to fearful to accept.

Book Review The Seraph Seal

Book review The Seraph Seal by Leonard Sweet and Lori Wagner

I received my copy of the Sheraph seal through book sneeze.

First, Ill say it was really interesting and fascinating , and you can tell a lot of work went into it.

This is a Christian based book about the Apocalypse and events leading up to it.

At the start of the book the year is 2048 and the world has basically forgotten about traditional beliefs in God and in its place is a organization called the new selfer method of belief.

This is the story of Paul Binder a University of Virginia Historian and his friends as they are lead to different clues about the coming world end. Paul has been give a key and a cryptic note, which starts him on his journey to try and figure out what it means and why it was given to him.

This is a longer book but because its so different and interesting its hard to put down and is a very different view of the mysteries surrounding the biblical narrative of the apocalypse.

Its a really good mystery and even has some romance. This story traces the movements of not only Paul's group of the faithful but also the decisions and progress of the unfaithful. Those people who by their greed and and political power try to take over each others countries and corner the market on resources. The people in power cause a lot of destruction around the world causing millions to die of disease and starvation.

Paul's Group is concerned with one thing, finding out what they can do to save as many people as they can. They discover many clues through an ancient newly discovered Syrian manuscript that was found buried but in tact.

They also find other clues as to what will happen, what happened in the passed, and how it will all come together at the end.

From M theory to String Theory to biblical prophecy this story weaves science with Theology.

Even though this is a christian based book I think anyone who enjoys political intrigue and mystery or Science Fiction will think its fascinating and well worth the read. This story is a mixture of the thrills of of the movie Armageddon with a dash of the Davinci code and a bit of message stories like Left Behind. It shows people at their best and worst and offers a happy ending. A must read for Christian fiction readers.

Thank you for reading my review :)

Product review I love My Kindle

Wow I cant believe how much I love my Kindle!

At first I was worried I might have a problem connecting it to my network but once I put in the correct password it was connected right away.

I love they way you can read it in any light these photos were taken outside on my porch and you can clearly see the display. Because I only had a limited number of amazon gift cards that I got through doing surveys I opted for the Kindle with the advertisement screen-saver for only 113.00. as you can see these ads are not ugly and disappear one you start reading.

I than went to amazon and looked through their free books and got a bunch. each was delivered in seconds and ready to read.

what I love about this too, is that it comes with a dictionary so if I see a word I'm not sure of in one of the more classical theological books I'm reading I just highlight an it gives me the definition without being invasive.

My Kindle will download blogs,documents, and just about anything printed. If I get a book that I have to download to my computer I just send that file to my Kindle through Kindle email!

I took two photos to show how nice the display is . one showing the screen-saver and one showing some of the titles I have downloaded free from amazon.

you can do a search on amazon for the top 100 free books and games for Kindle in the Kindle store.

I love that its so thin and lightweight and the pages turn quickly so it can keep up with you.

with the whisper net I can download a book without it being hooked up to my PC, in seconds.

Bottom Line this is an awesome product and I am so happy with it, if you are thinking about getting a ereader you cant go wrong both in price and function. thanks for reading my review :)

New Chapter Holy basil

Best Price Supplements
Wow I have been using The Holy Basil for 10 days and I gotta tell you they really do a great job in keeping me way less crabby, I'm actually sorry to see them go and really want to buy a large bottle so I can keep the happy going. As most of you know I'm having a bit of trouble with menopause and being overly inpatient and down right crankiness. I was not sure these could possibly help as much as they did. I am really amazed and not just saying that. I am going to look into making the Holy Basil part of my daily supplement routine. I could see a drastic change in my temperament, even my husband could see the change and is all for my continuing with the Holy Basil. bottom line if you are looking for a supplement that has the ability to make you way more patient and way less craby you need go give Holy Basil a try for sure, Its awesome !!!

Fiber one cereal review and giveaway

I was able to try these delicious Fiber one cereals through blogspark and I must say this is the best tasting fiber cereal Ive ever tried , they really do mean it when they say its very tasty . I was also very interested to learn some statistics I did not know through information provided to me through blogspark and Fiber one cereal here is some of those interesting statistics

The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans say people should consume 25-38 grams of fiber daily, and that the average American consumes only 15 grams. What´s amazing is that incorporating fiber into your diet can be effortless and definitely delicious, with Fiber One cereals offering at least 30 percent of the Daily Value per serving. (Some Fiber One cereals offer more than 50 percent!) Fiber One Original® and flavored varieties like Honey Clusters®, Raisin Bran Clusters®, Caramel Delight®, and Shredded Wheat®, make fiber taste good and help to give people a jumpstart on their fiber intake each day.

A recent nutrition review* concludes that eating fiber is associated with reduced risks of cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes. In addition, fiber helps you feel satisfied, which makes it easier to stick to your diet and lose weight without feeling as hungry.

Outlined below are intriguing statistics from a recent survey** you took part in, along with over 1,000 fellow bloggers:
30 percent thought they were getting the recommended Daily Value of fiber

66 percent say they struggle to incorporate fiber into their diets

51 percent said that they don´t think about incorporating fiber into their diet, while 21 percent said fiber is too difficult to find in foods they enjoy

45 percent said they would like their fiber to come with honey
Let your taste buds be your guide and let Fiber One take care of the fiber. Getting fiber in foods you love doesn´t have to be a struggle when there are delicious honey clusters, plump and juicy raisins, caramel-flavored whole wheat squares, or whole grain shredded wheat biscuits with frosting that make it taste amazing.

I really loved all 5 of these wonderful cereals that provide you with a good deal of the fiber you need per day in a very tasty way .

AND NOW for the giveaway-one lucky winner will win 5 boxes of different Fiber one Cereals -USA only please. follow the instructions for entries -please post a comment for each task you do or it will count as one entry. be sure to do the mandatory entry or you cannot win this giveaway.Thanks
