I suggest going to Amazon Kindle and reading the book Turkey Broth for the Spirit: For the Theologian's Spirit and the book All the Fish in the Sea. Both books are by author Ester Lighthorse. All the Fish in the Sea is a surprisingly funny book on dating and how to use men. The Turkey Broth book is a hilarious spoof of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series of books.

I like to read a variety of books, some just for pure entertainment, others that are more of a challenge with some twists and turns. Some of my favourites are by Norman Doidge, also Chocolat & Blackberry Wine by Joanne Harris, Every Secret Thing by Emma Cole. The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley. Books by Nicholas Sparks, Richard Paul Evans. I also have some waiting for me, such as The Forgotten Garden. It's a real treat to look and choose which book should be read next. Pls. post a list of your favourites.

“The Guys Who Spied for China is written by Gordon Basichis. The novel is a roman a clef, based on the author’s very real experiences helping to uncover American made Chinese Moles and their elaborate and most formidable espionage network that began functioning just after the Korean War. We can see from the recurring headlines that it still functions today.
The book chronicles an offbeat relationship between two disparate souls, the author and a senior high level intelligence operative, who form a strange union through fate and circumstance. It is quirky and often funny. It is very different from typical spy novels. The author describes it as his E-Ticket Ride into this shadow world of intrigue, danger and deception.
The story takes place largely in California, in the Santa Monica Mountain Range, just above Beverly Hills. California has long been the happy hunting ground for Chinese spies. It tells a tale that has yet to be told. It does so with remarkable style and intimacy.

I am thinking about building a website to sell all the used books my girlfriend has been reading. Maybe for 1/3 to 1/4 the cost of the book when it was new. Any thoughts? Do you think this idea would fly? They could pay by Paypal.

I’m hoping that one of you bright readers can help me. When I was a freshman in high school (1979) I read a book. I do not know if the book came out that year or ten years before. I had just started to enjoy mystery reading and so I did not pay attention to the author or any part of the book that could help me locate this book today.
Some of the details are fuzzy, but the book was primarily about an elderly (50 - 60 yrs) couple that decides that they want to get away to celebrate their retirement. They decide to go on a cruise and to save money, they decide to shop around for prices. While trying to find the best price, they come across an advertisement for a private cruise on a smaller (50 – 75 feet) boat. They decide to take the cruise and after being on the water strange things begin to happen.
1. Little by little the crew requires more help from the couple,
2. The husband almost cuts his thumb off, and they do not give him medical attention
3. The boat gets stuck on a sand bar and they ask the husband to get out and pull the boat,
4. Their food begins to be rationed.
They end up just being tortured on this private cruise getaway. The story ends by the couple finding the captain’s notes and they discover that the captain is experimenting on how long subjects can be pushed passed exhaustion.
I’ve been looking for this book ever since high school just so that my wife and I can read it. If you can help in any way please email me back. Thank you.

The Eilithia Project by Marjorie Danser has to be one of this years best new sci-fi releases. Set in a future world outpost where greed and exploitation continue to eat away at society, The Eilithia Project does not disappoint. For fans of the Indiana Jones and the Bladerunner genre variety of films and books, this book is a must read. Filled with excitement and sharp banter, the novel is filled with romance, as well as the futuristic elements we all have come to expect of this kind of book. Characters to watch out for include Kayla Reef, Dr Vargas and Benjamin O'Rourke. Their lives intertwine in a way that is fresh and new, while at the same time, the story is loyal to the style that makes sci-fi what we have always known it to be...a world where almost anything can happen.

The Greatest Love..Being An Extraordinary Mom is a great book I just found that more people should know about. I got it at a Target store in LA and was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't too syrupy, just lovely, honest and relatable. I went back and got a caouple more for MOther's Day gifts. I was initially intrigued by the lovely photos, then got into the content. You can tell it wasn't put out by a major publisher since it could have used a but of editing for some typos (I'm anal about that) but it should have been and will hopefully be in more places. I plan to give a copy to a friend of mine who's pregnant and has no idea what to expect. This doesn't try to be a "how to" except on how to maintain your life and still be a mother who can share herself honestly and without guilt or resentment. I highly recommend it.

Maybe he is lying, maybe he isn't. It's very easy to lie on the internet. But it could be true still. Some people have done worse to their offspring.

Or call Children's Help Line, I have a feeling he's lying.
