    From slave to freedom fighter: that was the long and hard journey taken by Frederick Douglass. Douglass was America's first great civil rights leader, and he threw off the physical, mental, and legal chains of slavery to become one of Americaï¿¿ï¿¿s greatest champions for human rights. It was said that his life was proof that once black people could read and write about their injustices, they would have the power to end slavery.

    Story

    This book is written for a child or a youth and it definately reads that way. The story was choppy and did not flow and it was "dumbed down". I never finished it, and I love the biography of Frederick Douglas. It was just written for the education level of about a 5th grader.

    Miss Jane Marple, spinster sleuth extraordinaire, is introduced in this first-ever mystery to feature her brilliant talents. The setting is St. Mary Mead, where Colonel Protheroe is found shot in the vicar's study. Nearly everyone in town is a suspect: his daughter, his second wife, the artist enamored with both of them, the poacher, and even the vicar. Into this uproar, Miss Marple carefully steps and shrewdly fits the puzzle pieces together. Match wits with this master of the deductive arts.

    Coffee Lover says: "Wonderfully entertaining"

    This is a great book. I love miss marple.

    Long-time fans and newcomers alike will relish this animal fable from Brian Jacques, whose books, including Redwall and Mossflower, are best sellers on both children's and adult lists. In Triss, the hero is a spunky young squirrelmaid who escapes servitude and finds a new destiny as a warrior at Redwall Abbey.

    Great book. We have all of the reading books so far, and now we are working on the audio. The audio is really good. My only recommendation is to go with a 3 or 4 on download. Make it a 4 whenever possible. It is worth it.
