While this isn't an exciting or moving book, it was a lot of fun for me to read the story of how the Nancy Drew books, which I grew up with, were created. I've always known they had multiple authors, all known as Carolyn Keene ... but this is the sto ...more

Another wonderfully comical mystery from Kylie Logan. A group of ladies we have already learned to love in the first book, a classic piece of literature as a backdrop, and characters that are very familiar to small town dwellers like myself, all add ...more

While I have read other editions of A Christmas Carol, this one was truly a delight! The story itself was the same, I think ... though there were a few parts I didn't seem to remember. But the illustrations were wonderful, although a bit dark (I mean ...more

Sarah Addison Allen
“On the day the tree bloomed in the fall, when its white apple blossoms fell and covered the ground like snow, it was tradition for the Waverleys to gather in the garden like survivors of some great catastrophe, hugging one another, laughing as they touched faces and arms, making sure they were all okay, grateful to have gotten through it.”
Sarah Addison Allen, First Frost

“There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate.”
Linda Grayson

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Jack London
“Life is not always a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes, playing a poor hand well.”
Jack London

Charlotte Brontë
“We know that God is everywhere; but certainly we feel His presence most when His works are on the grandest scale spread before us; and it is in the unclouded night-sky, where His worlds wheel their silent course, that we read clearest His infinitude, His omnipotence, His omnipresence.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
