The Science of Everyday Life by Len Fisher
The Science of Everyday Life: An Entertaining and Enlightening Examination of Everything We Do and Everything We See - Len Fisher

In this book, Len Fisher discusses the science of "everyday life", covering such topics as:  dunking cookies in coffee; boiling eggs; the physics of tools; adding up supermarket bulls; the physics of boomerang throwing; ball catching in baseball; foam; taste and aroma; and the physics of sex.  The book includes a few equations

While the book is enlightening it is not particularly entertaining.  I found the text in general to be somewhat long winded and the author discussions about his own experiments to be tedious.  I was also not particularly interested in most of the topics covered in this book.  Storm in a Teacup by Helen Czerski, is in my opinion, a more entertaining and interesting books that covers many more topics than this book.

Entertaining Distraction: Doms of The Covenant Book Two - Samantha A. Cole,Judi Perkins,Eve Arroyo

This is book #2, in the Doms Of The Covenant series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers, and to gain a better understanding of the series, I recommend reading this sexy series in order.

 

Charlotte has known Michael for a while now.  She has suddenly noticed things about his behavior that make her think they are compatible.  If she gives things a chance, will he let her show him a whole new world?

 

Mike has known about the community for some time.  His brother and his friends seem to be happy to be a pat of it.  It just has never interested him until Charlotte has given him a reason to check it out.

 

This sexy addition to the series was such a joy to read.  I found myself rooting right away for this couple.  The pace moves nice and steady.  There is even many of our favorite characters inside.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Lisa Burton Radio, with Delilah Delibes

(reblogged from Entertaining Stories)

 

 

 

Hi everyone, and welcome to the first ever, premier episode of Lisa Burton Radio. This is the show where we feature the characters that make books come alive. I’m your host, Lisa the robot girl.

 

I have special guest Delilah Delibes, who appears in the Blake Hetherington Mysteries.

Our sponsor today is Live and Let Bee, by D. S. Nelson. Let’s go to the phone. Hi Delilah, you’re on the air with Lisa Burton.

 

“Hi Lisa, I’m so excited to be on your show, thank you so much for inviting me. You’ll have to excuse the state of my hair; I’m on a dig at the moment. Oh, wait … you can’t see me, right? Oops … (laughs)”

 

“It sounds like you have a pretty exciting life, Delilah. You’re an archaeologist who gets to travel all over the world. Tell us about how your archaeological experience helps you solve murders.”

 

“I know! I love it! I’m not sure Rob does though, that’s my boyfriend. He’s a police sergeant and he hates me getting caught up in situations. Like the one last year on Salderk. We were on a remote island, I was bored out my head; of course I was going to get involved and as you say, being an archaeologists means I’m hardly afraid of a dead body or two. I might even be able to help. The past often holds the key to the present. Blake thinks a young lady like me shouldn’t be interested in murder, but he’s just as bad. It doesn’t take much encouragement to get him on the case too.”

 

“That’s really interesting, Delilah. So you and Rob live in different towns. Is this a long distance relationship, or are these more like country villages that are close by each other? How serious are you two?”

 

“Oh not far at all, about thirty minutes. I live in a little village just outside Tuesbury, that’s where Blake lives, and then Rob lives in the next town, Bestall. Rob and I have been dating for about two years. He’s a great guy; a little serious sometimes but he keeps me grounded.

 

“At the wedding we went to last Summer I wanted him to wear a tie that matched my wonderful fascinator and dress. It was a really plain dress though, why D S couldn’t have found something with a little more, you know je ne sais quoi; seriously! It’s always about the hats with her though. Rob wasn’t sure about the whole tie thing at first but I think it’s important for us to look right together.

 

“He wanted me to move in with him last year after the incident with Bertie and that crazy Cartwright brother Jay, he’s in prison now. Exes, right Lisa? Seriously sheesh, the guy just wouldn’t give up. Rob’s a sweetie but I like my space. I haven’t been away on a dig for a while now. I’m getting itchy feet and it’s good to be able to come and go as I please.”

 

“So you’ve identified him to the world as your boyfriend. That makes perfect sense. It’s too bad your author couldn’t come up with a better dress to go along with your fascinator. When I’m traveling incognito, I sometimes wear some terrible things. That’s why I suit myself the rest of the time.

 

“We have something else in common too. There are days when my pet rabbit, Bunny, feels like my only friend. I’m sure our listeners would love to know about Bertie. Animals are so important in stories.”

In the Unlikely Event compelling, entertaining, if a bit juvenile
In the Unlikely Event - Judy Blume

In the winter of 1951-52 three commercial passenger planes crashed within the city limits of Elizabeth, New Jersey, the city being on the flight path into Newark Airport. There were over a hundred fatalities including some residents.

 

In the novel, In the Unlikely Event, author Judy Blume, who was a young girl and a resident of the city during that period has taken the experience and crafted a fictional tale of growing up in the fifties with these disasters as a backdrop.

 

This is a coming of age novel focusing on family and friendship with a host of characters including the heroine, fourteen year old Miri Ammerman, her single-parent mother Rusty, her maternal grandmother Irene, and her uncle Henry, a reporter. There’s also a host of Miri’s friends, their families and even a boyfriend.

 

Blume somehow manages to keep it all straight by telling the story in multiple points of view and each time it changes using the person’s name as a heading for the section.

 

The novel is well crafted, the characters are fully developed and the writing is simple and straightforward.

 

In the Unlikely Event is compelling and entertaining if you like a story primarily told from a young girl’s point of view. This reader found the ending to be overly optimistic but was grateful all the same for the characters I came to grow fond of.
