Book Reviews

I got so excited after reading this post from StephaniesMommyBrain. I have signed up to do book reviews for Thomas Nelson Publishing. All you have to do is read the book in the entirety, post a 200 word review on your blog and on a retail site and you get to pick out the books from their site to read. I can't wait....I love the kids books that they have.

The first book I'll be reading is Rex by Cathleen Lewis. It's about a blind autistic boy and how music changes his family's life.

I have a problem with books though so I'm going to have to be careful. When I get into a book...I get into a book and can't put it down. I pretty much leave all my duties behind and become engulfed in the book. Some of my favorite authors are Karen Kingsbury, Dee Henderson, Terri Blackstock and Francine Rivers. One of my favorite kids authors in Sheila Walsh...I just found her. She has written Gigi-God's Little Princess and Will-God's Mighty Warrior. Both of these make great birthday gifts.

Very cool!

I love Gigi books!!! My friend introduced me a couple of years ago, and I love reading the one we have to Abbey!

That's exactly why I seldom read fiction. Non-fiction I can walk away from. Fiction is much harder for me to put down. I'm excited that you are joining the Thomas Nelson bandwagon. We have all 3 "Will" books (mainly because we have a Will) and love them. I hope to get the Gigi books this year.
