Most of the time I choose books that sound good. Sometimes I buy books that sound so terrible that they arouse my curiosity.

When I saw The Zombie Project (Boxcar Children Mysteries #128) for sale on Amazon I thought "WTF are they doing to my childhood?" Then I bought it because I needed to know. I think it's impossible to really review this book. It's bad. Sometimes I feel like it's a joke. Then I find myself wondering "Were they always this bad & I just never realized?"

So here are some of t

For students grades 2-5 ready for easy chapter books that like mysteries. I have some of these already in my library and they aren't very popular, so I'm hoping the zombie angle on this one will increase their circulation.

I totally listened to this audiobook the past two nights going to be. He had a very soothing voice, brought me back to my childhood. Benny still kind of gets on my nerves like he did when I was younger. Guess some things never change!
I do not know why I keep reading these books. I think that some part of me is hoping they'll get better. No such luck. :(
