Reading Makes You Feel Good – book review

 

Why read a good book?
Check out my Examiner.com book review on Todd Parr’s “Reading Makes You Feel Good” on http://www.examiner.com/article/why-read-2

The great illustrations and easy words found in Reading Makes You Feel Good by Todd Parr are a fun way to introduce your youngster to the joys of reading. A good book takes you on adventure, answers your questions about the world, allows your imagination to take you to foreign and mythical lands. The reader can be a princess or king, a dragon or puppy, a runaway or spoiled child on the wings of imagination. Even though this is a children’s book the truths apply to all ages.

Showdown at Black Lake (by Mark Butler) review

Showdown at Black Lake

Posted: October 12, 2012 in book review
     

 
Showdown at Black Lake
Showdown at Black Lake is a classic western saga about a good looking honest to
the bone quick-draw cowboy with integrity looking for a grubstake when he meets
an old coot of a ranch owner who is trying to keep the greedy, smooth-talking
con man from stealing his ranch and all that goes with it out from under him.
Its my kind of story. Mark Butler has woven western romance, reluctant sherriff,
gunslinger brother, card-cheat con man, honest but misled ranch hands, indians,
racism, faithful friends, and ex-slave freedman, and more into a good story. I
found a few surprises but even the surprises stuck to the true classic western
story. Good work Mark Butler.
link to Amazon review and find the book. I read it on a Kindle.
