When It's Against the Law To Take Your Eyes Off the Highway

I am a daily appointment reader. I make time to read, just like I make time to exercise. A healthy mind and body cannot be dismissed by the false notion--the utterly false notion--that there is no time everyday to get these things done. But even the hardcore believer, as I certainly am, knows there are times it's just not feasible, like driving down the highway. So, even though physical exercise might be out (unless you flex your toes or something like that), a good novel is not beyond your reach. On that next road trip try an audio book. I would like to suggest "Annie's World: Jake's Legacy". Follow Annie as she grows from a disheveled and dirty ten-year-old into a genetically blessed savior of a future world out of control.

Or, would it go beyond that--far beyond that, and have nothing whatsoever to do with thinking and reasoning? The sci-fi novel, "The Last Radiant Heart" follows the adventures of one such individual.

"Defining Family" Review

Read what one reviewer said about the young adult novel "Defining Family";

This review is from: Defining Family (Kindle Edition)
I could not stop reading this from the first page. How can anyone write about something with all of the kids in this story that is so accurate. Something rarely discussed and put into reality that should be addressed in this country or even the world. A real definition about what the family is about outside of the box.

Sometimes, wisdom, locked away and denied, must be set free. And, the means by which that is accomplished can, indeed, come in deceptive packaging. A homeless man they call Pop begins a life's lesson in a small Texas farming community in "Six Years' Worth"
