    A popular question in philosophy is "How do I know I exist?" That seems really boring, though. How about, "How can I use logic to get over my ex?" If you really love wisdom, you love it in all situations - you don't need to be spoon fed unsolved problems in philosophy, because you're already analyzing the US Weekly you’re reading or your kinda significant other. Sarah Heuer and Chrissy Stockton are writers living in Minneapolis who are determined to do something more interesting with their philosophy degrees than talk about dead white guys.

    I'm glad this book was free. It should be a blog. That might make it less painful. I wouldn't pay for it.

    In Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker, novelist Jennifer Chiaverini presents a stunning account of the friendship that blossomed between Mary Todd Lincoln and her seamstress, Elizabeth 'Lizzie' Keckley, a former slave who gained her professional reputation in Washington, D.C. by outfitting the city’s elite. Keckley made history by sewing for First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln within the White House, a trusted witness to many private moments between the President and his wife, two of the most compelling figures in American history.

    Book and Movie Lover says: "Good mix of fiction and history"
    "Historically interesting."

    Story

    I enjoyed the book. It was another perspective on the Civil War and the workings of the White House. The inside glimpse, even fictionalised, of the Lincoln household is interesting.

    Fiver could sense danger. Something terrible was going to happen to the warren; he felt sure of it. They had to leave immediately. So begins a long and perilous journey of survival for a small band of rabbits. As the rabbits skirt danger at every turn, we become acquainted with the band, its humorous characters, and its compelling culture, complete with its own folk history and mythos.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Watership Down the most enjoyable?

    The story is amazing, especially since the author began by making it up as a story to entertain his daughters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Watership Down?

    This is a creative story that is as relevant today as it was 30 years (or so) ago when I first read it.


    What does Ralph Cosham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The story is engaging, witty and fun. I wish it never had to end. Mr. Cosham brings the characters alive. Each rabbit has their own way of communicating and Mr. Cosham emphasizes that.


    Who was the most memorable character of Watership Down and why?

    Hazel and General Woundwort are memorable characters. Fiver is also wonderful.

    Summer's Path is the remarkable story of Don Newport, an engineer that comes face to face with his personal destiny under extraordinary circumstances. After losing his job and his health insurance, Don learns he has a terminal disease with only a few months left to live. On his death bed, he meets Robert, a brazen angel of death that promises to help Don with a graceful exit.

    Story
    What would have made Summer's Path better?

    ...not being written.


    What was most disappointing about Scott Blum’s story?

    ...it was written.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was fine, the story was not.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I kept looking for redeeming qualities...I guess the only one is they saved Sadie, the pregnant dog, from being destroyed by rescuing her from the pound.


    Any additional comments?

    If I could give negative stars I would. I hope this was one of my free books. I hate wasting a credit on it.

    Being dead sucks. Make that being undead sucks. Literally. Just ask Thomas C. Flood. Waking up after a fantastic night unlike anything he's ever experienced, he discovers that his girlfriend, Jody, the woman of his dreams, is a vampire. And surprise! Now he's one, too.

    Levin says: "Classic Moore"
    "Loved the Title"

    Hated what I heard. There was sex with unconscious people; sex with dead people. A little too creepy for me.
