Not the right book for me but could be great for someone who *really* loves books.
The Book: A Cover-to-Cover Exploration of the Most Powerful Object of Our Time - Keith Houston

I enjoy books about books and 'The Book' promised to be a nuts and bolts look at what makes a book. From the pages to the ink to the binding to how a book is formatted, etc. it's all here.

 

Houston starts from the beginning with a look at papyrus and how it was made. That's how far down deep we get into it to get an idea. And while for the right person this might be a great look, for me this is not something that appeals to me at all.

 

In some ways this is a book that is the opposite of 'The Caped Crusade' which I read recently. For TCC I liked how it was to the point and we did not get too bogged down with the creators, illustrators, storytellers of Batman's story. For me I tend not to like when authors go into long histories of the people behind the story, in this case, the book. This bogged down my reading of the text and it just did not work for me.

 

That said, there is good information in the book and for the right person this is probably something that would really appeal to them. It might be a very niche book that appeals to a very specific audience, one that I am not a part of. No big deal for me but for a layperson this might not be a text that is right for you.

 

Borrowed from the library which was right for me. Recommend you do the same unless this is a very specific field you enjoy or use for work, etc.

A Different Christmas - KM Lowe,Eric Battershell Photography,Book Cover by Design,Karen Sanders

I love stories that are centered around the theme of Christmas, so when the chance came for me to read and review A Different Christmas I could not resist.  This is the type of story that will get you in the mood for the upcoming Christmas holidays. It was funny, engaging and sweet. It will have you itching to pop out the Christmas tree and decorations. It reminded me of the fun I used to have growing up during the Christmas season.

The story is about Sam and Luke, who are as different as night and day. Sam grew up in a loving home, where Christmas celebrations were one of the most important family events.  Luke, on the other hand, grew up in a home void of maternal love and one where Christmas was seen as an opportunity for networking.

Christmas was coming soon and Sam was looking forward to going home to celebrate with her family. However, her plans were derailed by her boss. Luke wanted her to accompany him to New York for business, of course, she was not amused.  She didn’t particularly like him. She considered him to be an arrogant prick.

At first I didn’t like Sam. Frankly, I thought her attitude towards her boss was a bit off. The manner in which she spoke to him would indicate that she had no respect for him.  She was judgmental, where Luke was concerned. She chose to form opinions about him without getting to know him. I must admit, though, there were moments when I couldn’t help but laugh at some the words that spewed from her lips.  Being forced to spend the week leading up to Christmas with him she came to realise that there was more to Luke than what she initially thought. Eventually, a softer and more caring side to her would emerge as a result. I adored Luke. After seeing what he went through as a child, my heart went out to him.  He had built walls around his heart, refusing to let anyone in, that was until he met Sam.

I was happy with how the romance between Sam and Luke developed.  It was not rushed. Their feelings for each slowly evolved, especially on Sam’s part. Luke had been drawn into her from the first time he saw her. He knew she barely tolerated him, as such he was hoping to use this trip to build a connection with her. However, what he did not count on was her power to break down the walls he had erected around his heart.

I found the characters interesting. Some I loved, some not so much.  I appreciated the way Luke handled his mother.  Her behaviour is the type that would test the patience of a saint, but never once did he showed her any disrespect.  It was so much more than a romance novel. It was a story about the importance of family and how the accumulation of wealth was a poor substitute.

If you enjoy Christmas romances, then you will love this book. This was my first time reading the author’s work and I was not disappointed.

This one took a little more effort, lol. Also, my shirts are too small for my dog! I'm raising a beast.

The Smoke Hunter - Jacquelyn Benson

I never thought I would bemoan the fact that I don't have a fedora but how perfect would that have made this picture. We weren't sure what to do for this cover but it says it takes place in Central America, there has to be a snake scene, right?!
