'...each book comes alive with historical notes, highlights on key themes and characters, and advice on how to approach reading.'
Yeah, not exactly. The book contains nothing more than glorified blurbs and personal opinions of the books by the author. Advice on how to approach reading isn't done on books individually but instead combines similar books together for theme months. I don't much care for reading a bunch of the same books back to back and instead prefer a variety. Not what I was looking for at all....more

Holy cuteness. Seriously. Being a huge fan of the daily ZooBorns e-mails I knew I had to check this out for even more adorable animals. The baby tigers and baby lions always get to me but it's always fun seeing pictures of some animal that I've never even knew existed. Fantastic photography including a small description of the baby animals life. This is a great book that adults and kids can both enjoy. ...more
I had seen the Maru youtube video of this super cute cat running and sliding into a box but I had no idea it was this Maru cat I've heard so much abouI had seen the Maru youtube video of this super cute cat running and sliding into a box but I had no idea it was this Maru cat I've heard so much about until this book. It was adorable and I loved it. Maru is a pretty cute cat, although I think my cats could give him a run for his money.
They like to cuddle. Bad camera angle... Binky isn't that fat. Okay, maybe she is.
That's Reindeer Buns.
That's Santa Binky. Binky REALLY hated her Santa suit. And it was a little small.
And see? My kitties like boxes too. My kitties win. ...more
I was extremely interested in taking a look at this cookbook as I’m plagued by several food allergies and it can be downright difficult for me to find a recipe I can follow to a T without having to replace this and that. When I read ‘120 Gluten-Free Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, Egg-Free, and Soy-Free Recipes Everyone Will Love’ I thought I had found the cookbook of all cookbooks; however, it ended up being just like any other cookbook I’ve picked up. My interpretation of the SubTitle was that ALL of their recipes were gluten-freen, dairy-free, etc, when in reality it was a gluten free recipe and then a dairy free recipe; there were few recipes that were actually free of all the common allergens. This brought nothing new and I still found myself replacing ingredients in order for me to be able to eat it.
Another thing that I love from a good cookbook is the pictures that correspond with the recipes and I found pictures weren’t provided for all recipes. There were some interesting recipes that I did try and (after substituting) did actually enjoy, but as I said above this really didn’t bring anything new to the cookbooks I already own....more
