    It’s all about the food…. For the Robertsons, family is typified by the dinner table, where both food and fables are dished up with equal care. Anyone with a good story - whether it be a hunting escapade or one of the children’s antics - is welcome to share. And that’s what this family is all about - sharing, caring for one another, and the love of good food. Chapters are built around recipes that represent each stage of the Robertson life. What do faith, family, ducks, and money have in common? Korie and Willie Robertson!

    I recently discovered the Robertsons on A&E. I love their story. I enjoy their family bond and their faith in God ... and they are FUNNY!
    The book provides insight into their testimony and it's read by Willie and his wife. Willie won't be able to make a living as a narrator - LOL, but I like him reading his own story.
    If you like the show, you will enjoy the book.
    If you've never watched the show, get the book and you will want to watch the show.

    It's all about love of God and love of family....

    Liberty, my wisecracking horse, our old friends Cam, Tommy, Freedom, and I are off to meet some super-brave soldiers in the year 1775. Yep, that’s right. We’ll be visiting with the underdog heroes who fought for American independence, against all odds - and won! But not before eight very real years of danger and uncertainty. Be a part of Rush Revere’s crew as we rush, rush, rush into a time when British rule had become a royal pain, and rebellion was in the air.

    This is a very entertaining book and will help you and your child learn a little history along the way. Rush narrates this himself and does a great job.
    If you've read his first two history books and enjoyed them, you'll like this one as well.... same general set up just different history lesson.
    Recommend for just about any age.

    For Will Innis and his daughter, Devlin, the loss was catastrophic. Every day for the past five years, they wonder where she is, if she is - Will's wife, Devlin's mother - because Rachael Innis vanished one night during an electrical storm on a lonely desert highway, and suspected of her death, Will took his daughter and fled. Now, Will and Devlin live under different names in another town, having carved out a new life for themselves as they struggle to maintain some semblance of a family.

    Story

    This was a good book, not at the top of list as suspend novels go, but it held my interest. There were a few unexpected twists in there. Worth the listen if you have time. The Narrator was decent, he certainly did not spoil the book as a bad narrator does. All in all, it was a good book, not great, but it held my interested. I recommend.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    This story is very captivating. The newly released movie is nearly 100% true to the book. The only reason i didn't rate it 5 stars was because I would have preferred less foul language... but that is my personal preference. The story was really good. I recommend both the movie and the book.

    An innocent man is about to be executed. Only a guilty man can save him. Travis Boyette is such a man. In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, he abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high-school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row.

    Story

    I was really enjoying this story, it unfolded kind of slow but was interesting. The narrator is not real good but they did not mess up the story - so it was ok.
    Toward the end I was really getting into the story and then the last 3 or so hours it became apparent that this book /story had evolved into a rant from an Anti- Death Penalty perspective. That was disappointing because it took away from my enjoyment.
    Other than that, it was good, I would recommend

    On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a 32-year-old Realtor, had three goals: sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she’s about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all.

    Written in an urban vernacular that’s electrifying and intimate, On the Come Up introduces a heroine whose voice is irrepressible, dynamic, and unstintingly honest. Thirteen-year-old AnnMarie Walker dreams of a world beyond Far Rockaway, where the sway of the neighborhood keeps her tied to old ideas about success. While attending a school for pregnant teens, AnnMarie comes across a flyer advertising movie auditions in Manhattan. Astonishingly, improbably, and four months before she’s due to give birth - she lands a lead role.

    I downloaded the first few chapters as a free preview.... I did not even get through chapter 1. This was not for me, the language was too strong and offensive.

    For some, it may be enjoyable, but not for me.
