Another Book Cover Review

It's library day again so I've got some more audio book-cover reviews for you. I decided that I wouldn't have any credibility with you if I didn't catch you up on the other books so here goes:


I really enjoyed this book. It had quirky humor which I always enjoy. I thought it was going to be too much about hospitality for my interest but it had some great tips and great humor. Randy heard a little of it and he thought it was funny. This book isn't for everyone. Some of her humor is a little out there. Still I recommend this book.


This book was over my head. As I listened I kept thinking that I was going to enjoy it, but I had to admit that I didn't understand what in the world she was talking about. I don't think this book is good at teaching grammar. I think it would be better for someone who has a grasp on grammar but has a questions about the details of grammar. I just couldn't hang. Snob me if you will.


I listened to this last week and I laughed so much. I think Ellen is so funny. I listened to this on the way to Ft. Worth last week and the time just flew by.


I also listened to this last week. I loved it. I know. I know...I don't believe in Santa, but the back of the cover really got me. The man that wrote the book portrays Santa every year and he also has a heart for the disabled. He has a workshop all year long where he repairs wheelchairs and other medical equipment. He tells funny and touching stories about portraying Santa. I can't believe that I cried several times while listening to his stories. It was enjoyable even for an ol' Scrooge like me.

This week I'm listening to a few more. I've been reading biography type books because I'm researching how they go about telling their story. I thought it would help me as I write my book.


I'm excited about this book. It says, 'Thanks for the TIP-Confessions of a Cynical Waiter.' That just sounds funny.


This one is about 'The Art of Domestic Bliss' and reviving Victorian family celebrations of comfort and joy. Since I'm so very domestic I thought it would be a good read/listen.


And lastly, this just looked quirky enough for me to enjoy. It's a memoir of a HAPPY childhood. This I had to hear. I didn't know people wrote books about happy childhoods.

So there you have another Monday of Book Cover Reviews.
Oh, and thank you Amazon.com for your book pictures! If you were as cheap as the library I would get the books from you. That's something you should think about!

I like it too. That's where I buy most of my books and movies. That's why I don't mind using their photos. :)

Happy childhood? What? I didn't know existed. I'm totally playing. Of course. I can't wait to hear what you think about it.
