    Drawn from the work of StoryCorps, the largest and most ambitious private oral history project in American history, comes this tapestry of the stories Americans have been sharing from their lives to leave behind to their loved ones.

    Most of the stories brought tears to my eyes. Also smiles. They were all touching sweet stories and I would love to hear more!

    The season of gift-giving is here, and this year we've got something special for our members: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Yuletide whodunit "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle". In this holiday-themed short story, Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick, Dr. Watson, follow the trail of a lost hat and a Christmas goose through the streets of London and into a rapidly expanding mystery.

    Author Jennifer Chiaverini’s beloved, heartwarming series continues with this celebration of family and friendship. As the wedding day of Sarah McClure’s daughter Caroline approaches, Sarah’s thoughts are filled with brides of Elm Creek Manor past and present. A wedding quilt is a powerful metaphor, and Sarah is determined that the blocks in her daughter’s quilt will display a vivid pastiche of love in all its varieties.

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed the way the author viewed the future. Very realistic, a few expected advancements but not 'sci-fi-ish' the way some authors seem to be unable to resist.

    This seems a normal continuation of the Elm Creek Quilters' lives. Aging, death, illness, marriage, new jobs, moving around. The circle of life.

    Great story and great reading!

    The dead are walking, men die impossible deaths, and it seems as though reality itself has become unstable: All are signs of the imminence of Tarmon Gai'don, the Last Battle, when Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, must confront the Dark One as humanity's only hope. But Rand dares not fight until he possesses all the surviving seals on the Dark One's prison and has dealt with the Seanchan, who threaten to overrun all nations this side of the Aryth Ocean and increasingly seem too entrenched to be fought off.

    Liked how this book ended. Somewhat of a cliffhanger, but not like the last one. Can't wait to see how the series ends!

    In this volume, Elayne, Aviendha, and Mat come ever closer to the bowl ter'angreal that may reverse the world's endless heat wave and restore natural weather. Egwene begins to gather all manner of women who can channel: Sea Folk, Windfinders, Wise Ones, and some surprising others. And above all, Rand faces the dread Forsaken Sammael, in the shadows of Shadar Logoth, where the blood-hungry mist, Mashadar, waits for prey.

    I enjoy the variety of characters and societies that Jordan created. They make you happy, proud, excited, angry and disgusted. Fun to read.

    The Wheel of Time turns and ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the age that gave it birth returns again. For centuries, gleemen have told the tales of The Great Hunt of the Horn. So many tales about each of the Hunters, and so many Hunters to tell of. Now, the Horn itself is found: the Horn of Valere long thought only legend, the Horn which will raise the dead heroes of the ages.

    I read the first book of the series. I enjoyed listening better. The readers give life to the book and make it easier to "see" in your mind. Very enjoyable!
