Nick and Tesla's Robot Army Rampage: A Mystery with Hoverbots, Bristle Bots, and Other Robots You Can Build Yourself - Steve Hockensmith,Bob Pflugfelder

The build your own robot instructions look like a lot of fun but, for me, they are more intimidating. I think most parents/teachers and children could do them but they're more then I feel able to attempt on my own. They do provide the proper item numbers for the tiny motors (very smart) and most of the elements would be easy to find.

 

The story is also a lot of fun and I can't wait to see who the guilty party is!

A Killing Notion - Melissa Bourbon

That lying, cheating, scumbag! I knew it! I knew it!

 

*Ahem*, this is a great read so far; I love seeing the familiar characters again. I'm hoping I can set this down long enough to get some sleep!

Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation - Lynee Truss,Frank McCourt

Yeah I know. I have all these books finished and no reviews. I swear they are coming soon.

 

This one I'm holding off on as my library has the radio series on CD that goes along with this and I want to listen to it and review both.

 

In short, I love this book. It challenged me, made me think, had me laughing till my sides ached, and I don't think I've learned more about punctuation since Mrs. Ward in middle school who had us diagram sentences and butchered our papers with red ink.

 

Bless you, ma'am.

The Hotel on Place Vendome: Life, Death, and Betrayal at the Hotel Ritz in Paris - Tilar J. Mazzeo

Well, now that my mind is sufficiently blown, I'm going to have to gather the scattered threads of this book into a coherent review.

 

That might take a bit.

 

Right now I'm in information overload and there is just too much stuff in my brain. This author brings a ton a interlocking stories together.

 

In short, great book and as soon as I work out how I feel about it, I'll let you know.
