This year I am concentrating on giving thanks for all I have and not on what I have lost. Many of you know that I lost my father on October 13th of this year. The holidays will not be the same without him, but the little ones will help make them brighter. And after all is said and done, I haven't lost him. I will see him again. God bless you all and don't forget to bless God.

The Kriterion Saga: The World Between (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Jul 06, 2012 05:15AM
Description: Dad asked, 'Where are you this evening, George?' When he spoke to me directly, I jumped back to reality. I answered, 'Sorry, Dad. I was just thinking about the story Miss MacAlpin was telling me today. She didn't have time to finish it and wants me to come back tomorrow. The suspense is killing me.' Georgie O'Dell has spent enough time with his old neighbor. Just when he is ready to give up and hang out with friends his own age, Miss MacAlpin begins telling a story that will change Georgie's life forever. The story of Alex Edgecomb, an evil little boy with a hatred of his sister and all other living things, intrigues Georgie into hearing the rest, and he spends every possible minute at Miss MacAlpin's house from then on. Upon learning about the boy with blackness in his heart and soul, Georgie is shocked at how different—and better—his life is compared to Alex's. Georgie travels to the magical realm of Kriterion through Miss MacAlpin's story to hear the tales of Alex's entry into Kriterion and attempt to overthrow the kingdom. When Alex's plan is found out, he is destined for judgment and must learn his punishment for the wicked life he's lived and the cruel things he's done. Georgie makes another startling discovery about Miss MacAlpin, and the story changes his life even further. Join in on Georgie's exciting adventure to The World Between and find out if he'll change his ways or end up just like Alex.

Killing Patton is a fascinating read and the best of the series to date, in my opinion. It reads like a novel, but is jam packed with facts. It is safe to say that Patton was killed for being the most intelligent and insightful man of his day. He was ...more

A Long Way from Chicago by Richard Peck is a fun read. It's as simple as that. It's a lot like looking at a snapshot of small town America complete with what every small town has: a cast of colorful characters. There's no question in my mind that the ...more

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
