Compact, Convenient, and Inspirational!
The Prayer Map for Women: A Creative Journal - Compiled by Barbour Staff

In the style of a daily planner, “The Prayer Map for Women” offers a pleasant, easy-to-use guide for establishing or venturing further into a deeper prayer life. The first thing that I noticed about this prayer map was its conveniently compact size; it is lightweight and will fit in most women’s purses or bags for easy carrying. Also, because it is spiral-bound, writing in it is very handy, without having to hold the pages open; this is one of the first features I look at when considering any kind of notebook or journal. The pages themselves are whimsical and appealing without being ostentatious or detracting from its purpose, with magenta and teal illustrations.

Two pages are allotted for each entry, divided into small, concise sections. Each page begins with “Dear Heavenly Father” and contains the following sections: Thank You For; I Am Worried About; People I Am Praying For Today; Here’s What’s Happening in My Life; I Need; and Other Things on My Heart That I Need to Share With You, God. The second page ends with “Amen. Thank You, Father, for hearing my prayers.” There is also a different Bible verse at the end of each entry, which grounds the writer in Scripture and encourages further reading of the Word. For women who are looking to jump-start, revive, or simply go deeper in their prayer life, this quaint little journal is the perfect guide!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.

Early Spring in Massachusetts: From the Journal of Henry David Thoreau - Henry David Thoreau

To be great we do as if we would be tall merely, longer then we are broad, stretch ourselves and stand on tiptoe. But greatness is well-proportioned,unstrained, and stands on the soles of the feet.

So, Civil War...
Civil War: Punisher War Journal (Punisher War Journal (2006-2009)) - Ariel Olivetti,Matt Fraction,Mike Deodato Jr.

I picked this up as a freebie a while back, and just haven't gotten around to this.   I don't know, guys.  I really don't.  I enjoyed a bunch of this, but Civil War became this big tangled mess, and while it's nice to see how The Punisher saved Spider-Man, it makes me aware of what a big mess these types of events are.  I have to read everything to really get everything, and I don't have the time, money or patience to read everything. 

 

So I liked it: how they tracked down Castle, how he fought back without killing law enforcement, but I don't like the reminder that this is part of a huge web that I'll never really get the full story on, so I knocked down one star.

TIME TWISTER: JOURNAL #3 OF A CARDBOARD GENIUS by Frank Asch
Time Twister: Journal 3 of a Cardboard Genius (Journals of a Cardboard Genius) - Frank Asch

Time travelers are all around us.  Getting ahold of a time twister, Alex, Jonathan, and Zoe leave earth and start the search for a planet they could live on.  Lots happen before that and Jonathan isn't going to be happy how he traveled.  It is opened ended.  Did they find the planet?  Did they return home? 

 

Alex's asides are a hoot. I loved how he starts the journal.  I laughed out loud.  I find it a hoot.  Alex and Jonathan are a riot.  Just like some of the kids I know that age.  I hope there is a book 4 so I know the answers to my questions.
