A Tale of Two Cities and a tale of my day (not a book review)
A Tale of Two Cities - Charles Dickens,Stephen Koch

I LOVED this book.... aside from the beheading, starving, and taxing people.  That wasn't nice.  I really enjoyed the story though and I'm so glad I finally read it.  I gave it to my husband and insisted he read it too.  I hope he will but he doesn't seem willing.  

 

I totally cried at the end.  I tried to pretend I was a tough old broad and not a sissy crybaby but I failed.  I bet my husband cries more than I did if he reads it.  He is a bigger sissy than I am (but don't tell him I said that.)

 

I ordered a nice hardcover book copy on ebay today that has 3 of Dickens books, including this one, and it will look nice on my shelf.  It also has Great Expectations and Oliver Twist.  I hope I'm happy with it when it comes.  There are never enough pictures on ebay listings.  I also find it annoying that they don't give you any idea of size.  I want to know I'm not going to end up with a tiny book with text I can't read.  I think that should be automatically provided in the listing so I don't have to ask every time.  

 

My husband said I should get a book of the complete works of Charles Dickens.  LOL  Wouldn't that be one HUGE book?  

 

I did buy a paperback copy of The Old Curiosity Shop today.  It looks brand new but I got it at a used bookstore for $2.75.  I saved a whole $2.25 off the listed price!  I love deals no matter how small.  

 

Anyway, I will have to write a review another time.  I had a big day and I'm exhausted.  I will probably have to pay for it tomorrow.  I guess we will see.  There was a small fair type deal at a place call Calypso Farm up in the hills here.  It is in a small community called Ester.  It was a bit of a drive but I enjoyed it.  They had Shetland sheep and were shearing them so those wanting to learn could watch.  I watched the first one.  They had several people selling wool roving and yarn, spinning kits and knitted and crocheted garments.  Several people were spinning yarn.  They also had food, including pizza baked on a wood stove.  We are both dieting so we decided to pass.  It was also very, very muddy and the food was up hill through the mud.  We had to park on the side of the road and walk up this steep, sloppy muddy driveway (at least a block long) with water running down from the snow melt.  I didn't think to wear my mud boots since it isn't that muddy at my house and we have a lot less snow.  I had my wedge heeled faux suede ankle books on and hope they aren't ruined.  Walking up there was not fun at all.  I enjoyed talking to the people showing their wares and bought some turquoise blue yarn.  I got a little over 6 oz and saved 50%.  My husband went up to look at the food place to scout things out while I was looking.  He was a pretty good sport since he had ZERO interest in anything there (poor guy.)  He said there was a lot of dangerous food items for dieting folks there.  I wanted to go check it out but when I looked up and saw the way was still steeply uphill through 4 inch sloppy mud I decided to pass.  We went somewhere else and I ate a salad with grilled chicken that was much lower in calories.  So, I got some exercise, ate healthy, and got 4 new books!  I say that is a good day.  You can see some pictures I took on my instagram.  I still have a few pictures I need to add so hopefully I'll get that done soon.  I'm so exhausted I can hardly move.  I know I will be hurting tomorrow but at least it will be worth it.  I'll just chill out and read if I'm able.

"German build quality partnered with Italian passion...it's an intriguing concept but one that has paid off for the raging bull..."
Supercars: Driving the Dream - Adam Phillips

This quote shows that the Lamborghini Murcielago is very powerful with its 6,192cc, 6 speed transmission, and its 0-60 in 3.8 seconds! The car also has a very good build quality with passionate people building it. Also, the Murcielago is named after a bull who fought the famous matador Rafael Molina. Lastly the car's concept is meant to be very reliable.

Super cars: Driving the Dream
Supercars: Driving the Dream - Adam Phillips

 

Hi! My name is Brandon Trabbold.  I like to read books about cars and other thing that go fast.  I also like to read non-fiction.

The book I'm currently reading is called Supercars: Driving the Dream by Adam Phillips.  It is talking about the history of supercars in the first 20 pages.  The author talks about the Ford GT40, the Lamborghini Countach, the Ferrari 288 GTO, and many more.  Where I am at right now, it is talking about the modern supercar, for example the Aston Martin Vanquish S. It has 5,935cc engine with a 6 speed manual shifting.  The cars 0-60 is 4.7 seconds.  It also has a V12 fuel injected, 48 valve engine.  It has a maximum speed of 200+mph.  The car weighs 4,134 pounds.  Lastly the car has a maximum torque of 425 lb. ft. at 5,800 rpm.

Book Review - Driving Whiskey Wild by Melissa Foster
Driving Whiskey Wild - Melissa Foster

Driving Whiskey Wild by Melissa Foster is" an immense story of healing through love and of the magic that love can bring between two people," reviews Beck Valley Book Tours

There is just something about The Whiskeys and those around them, the pure love they have for each other, the bond and loyalty between them, the selfless actions they are willing to take for one another when needed makes for such a great read. You can feel the closeness, the secure calming feeling of knowing you are a part of their group. This and the fact that Melissa Foster makes it impossible not to fall in love with Bullet and Finlay will have you thoroughly enjoying the whole story. 

Within a few pages I was already smiling at humour between Bullet and Finlay, not willing to let each other get the better of each other, like dogs with a toy, their banter is hilarious. It's definitely a case of opposites attract and the want between them is obviously undeniable, their strong connection poured from the pages. It was also impossible not feel the protective force for Finlay from Bullet from those first chapters. 

As the story unfolds they end up being a source of strength for each other, both opening up and helping each other from their hurtful past, easing one anothers pain, growing stronger because of the love they share. Reading how this conflicted hunk of a man freely feeling emotions and love for the first time is years is quite emotional. But will their love for each other be enough to win the battle of emotions they face?

I ended up doing my usual trick when I'm absolutely loving a book of thinking up excuses to keep myself busy so I could hold back from reading the last few chapters so it didn't have to come to an end, I could have happily carried on reading about Bullet, Finlay and the Whiskey family and friends. I'm so looking forward to reading Dixie's story, just imagine how many hoops those Whiskey brothers will have him skipping through just to pass the their test for approval!

They say never judge a book by it's cover, well that's totally not the case for The Whiskeys, just look at that strong muscular body of the deep dark lovable hunk of a man, Bullet, he not only has you drooling at the cover but will have your heart skipping a beat in the story too. 

An immense story of healing through love and of the magic that love can bring between two people.
