    If you're young, old, or in the middle, get ready to laugh out loud with Erma Bombeck, America's funniest lady. This outrageously witty book proves that humor is the best way to keep on keel - even with a teenager in the house. You've finally figured out what makes your child tick, when one day you wake up to discover a teenager under your roof. Suddenly life is filled with a whole new set of worries.

    I use to like Erma’s stuff but this was a BIG disappointment. My girlfriend and I both listened to it and we both agreed that it was not very funny.

    This classic tale is a fantastical fable of two dear friends - one of whom goes astray and is literally lost to the north woods, while the other undertakes an epic journey to rescue him. This charming, strange, and wonderful story is a timeless allegory about growing up and the challenges of staying true to one's self, and it served as the wintry inspiration for the blockbuster hit Frozen.

    A bit too "cute". This book should be in the teen section. Definitely not for the adult reader. The low number of stars is based on an adult reading a kid book. For a teen the stars would be higher.

    C. J. Box's best-selling Joe Pickett novels have earned him a spot on every serious suspense fan's shortlist of favorites. The tightly constructed Out of Range brings game warden Joe to a new, remote beat in Wyoming's vast countryside to investigate the suspicious death of the previous warden.

    Twenty-six-year-old Rose Devlin may shop in the plus-size department, but she's never had a problem attracting men - with disastrous consequences. Rose has sworn off casual sex and moved to California to grow up, help her best friend, and make something of herself. When Rose asks the cute-but-geeky guy next door to help her land a job in high tech, she never expects to unearth his quiet strength, stunning accomplishments - and hidden talents.

    I truly liked Charlaine Harris and this series, until now.

    This book totally turned me off because it is DEPRESSING because of the child abductions.

    Then the book took a left turn with Tolliver, the brother. Totally unnecessary and a distraction.

    This could have been an excellent book in a very good series. The idea of the dead communicating from the grave was a great start to a new kind of paranormal experience in books.

    I'll try the next book BUT I'm not so sure that I will stick with the series. There are a LOT of buts...

    C.J. Box’s Open Season is a rare debut mystery that “immediately sets itself apart from the crowd” (Booklist). This thrilling novel stars Joe Pickett, a game warden in Wyoming who finds his life in danger after he looks into a murder investigation and discovers a conspiracy involving an oil pipeline and its threat to an endangered species.

    At Madeline's Tea Salon, the cozy hub of the Avalon community, local residents scrapbook their memories and make new ones. But across town, other Avalonians are struggling to free themselves of the past: Isabel Kidd is fixing up her ramshackle house while sorting through the complications of her late husband's affair. Ava Catalina is mourning the love of her life and helping her young son grow up without his father. And Frances Latham eagerly anticipates the arrival of a little girl from China - unprepared for the emotional roller coaster of foreign adoption.

    Sentimental like "The Notebook" but did not leave me wanting more. As our heroine points out scrapbooking is for everyone from the business that wants to tell its story to the individual who wants to leave the family memories. Underneath those basic needs is a heartfelt story.

One of the witches snags a part as an extra, while Katie's firefighter boyfriend, Declan, acts as on-set security.

    I want more in the series. It is just plain old fun to read and very light hearted despite the witches or maybe because of them. Good mystery series.
