Love & Gelato - Jenna Evans Welch
Love & Gelato - Jenna Evans Welch

What a sweet read!!!! I'm not just saying that because I love all things Italian, including my hubby, but this story really gave me the feels! Lina and Ren are one of my favorite couples and the road to them coming to be is one that I loved taking. A book lover friend of mine asked me about this book, but noticed the length and was a little put off. I can tell you that even though it's 400 pages, the pages go so fast you don't notice how long it is. The story doesn't feel long enough once you close the last page. Oh, how I want to see what happens now that Lina knows who she is, what she is doing with her life, and dating Ren. I just can't get enough! Plus she has this relationship with Howard that I know will grow and be wonderful. These are things we want to witness as readers, you just get so invested. If you like a feel-good romance, with a touch of drama, then you need this book in your life. It's definitely going on my faves list!

Review: The Nanny and the Nerd (Nanny Love Match #1) by: Krista Sandor
The Nanny and the Nerd (Nanny Love Match #1) - Krista Sandor

 

 

 

 

The Nanny and the Nerd by Krista Sandor

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Part of the fun is falling in love. Penny and Rowen are adorably, clueless, unpredictably tempting and unbelievably irresistible. Sandor puts her heart in The Nanny and the Nerd and serves up a delicious heartache that is addictably heartwarming.

Christianity and Neo-Platonism

by Nataša Pantović

Just got hold of an eBook from the Maltese collection of antiques, Theology, from Albertus, Magnus, Saint, 11930-1280, Dominicans, Venice (Italy), Ripelin, Hugh, ca.1205 - ca.1270, Landino, Cristoforo, 1424-1504.

Compendium Theologicae Veritatis Manuscript 1 Malta Public Library Albertus Magnus Saint

 

Compendium Theologicae Veritatis Manuscript 1 Malta Public Library Albertus Magnus Saint

In the Middle Ages, this book was considered to be the most widespread manual of Christian theology.

It was distributed, studied, researched, passed from a convent to the other as a Christian thought. Let me tell you why! The work is divided into seven parts treating different theological aspects of the Catholic faith from the Aristotle perspective! I am not joking! It was the famous Aristotle 380 BC, that Saint Albert paraphrased. So it was a real treat to see how deep Aristotle philosophy is engraved in the Christian thought!

Within the scientific observations of different types of atoms at similar energy levels, the states with the similar behaviour patterns are called: solid, liquid, gas, and plasma. The Ancient Greek system of Aristotle, a student of Plato attending the Plato’s Academy found in 387 BC in Athens, better known as the teacher, advisor, consultant of Alexander the Great who was the first one to travel to Egypt.

Aristotle was appointed as the head of the royal academy of Macedon Kingdom. During Aristotle's time (384–322 BC) in the Macedonian court, he gave lessons not only to Alexander, but also to two other future kings: Ptolemy and Cassander. During the reign of the Argead king Philip II (359–336 BC), for a moment in history Macedonia subdued mainland Greece and Thrace. His son Alexander the Great travelled to North Africa and far East and has died in Babylon  in 323 BC in the city he planned to establish as his capital. Alexander's legacy includes the Greco-Buddhism, and the presence of Greek speakers in Persian lands. 

Plato's own most profound philosophical influences are Socrates and Pythagoras.

Plato and Pythagoras shared a mystical approach to the soul probably influenced by Orphism.

 

 

Albertus Magnus, Saint Albert the Great

Albertus Magnus, also known as Saint Albert the Great or Albert of Cologne, was a German Catholic Dominican friar that during the 13th Century studied Aristotle and Plato and has written philosophical studies synthesising the work of the philosophers of Ancient Greek into the Christian doctrine.

Life of Albert the Great

Albert studded at the Italian University of Padua and was a lector at Cologne. Was sent to the University of Paris to complete his theological education and that was the time when he completed his major work. One of his students was believe it or not, St. Thomas Aquinas.

He died in 1280 and was buried in Cologne. In 1931 Pope Pius XI declared Albert a saint.

He paraphrased most of the works of Aristotle. He adopted the Aristotelian philosophical scientific program to prepare a unified theory of medieval Christian intellectual culture. Albert had a strong bias in favor of what we call today “Neo-Platonism”.

Together with his student Thomas Aquinas he supported this “natural philosophy” as a Christian philosophical vision.

He wrote commentaries on the Bible, commentaries on all the known works of Aristotle, Albertus undertook as he states “to make intelligible to the Latins” all the branches of natural science, ethics, metaphysics.

Big setting, big story, Survive – Love and Murder in Alaska is classic Wilkins

Not only is bush pilot Tom Bodeen’s cargo secret, but he’s also landing it in the remote Alaskan wilderness. Yet landing the plane turns out to be the least of his worries when he, his customer Levi and two employees, are confronted by armed hijackers and left for dead. Bodeen is saved from a shot to the head by his aviator’s helmet. 

 

When he gains consciousness, he realizes he's alone,  is badly injured, has no means to call for rescue and ​​his only hope of survival is to try to find Levi’s cabin, located somewhere miles from the landing site. This leads to a lengthy, tortuous journey across treacherous frozen terrain to get there against the odds. 

 

Yet getting there is only half the story. When Levi’s wife Elinor and daughter Marianne discover Bodeen, barely alive, and nurse him back to health, a rivalry develops for his affections between the seventeen-year-old Marianne whose hormones are raging out of control and her mother still in her sexual prime though trapped for years in a loveless marriage. Meanwhile, if Levi’s killers learn he’s still alive, they’ll be coming to finish the job of killing him. 

 

The stage is set as two jealous women with needs compete for an attractive injured man miles from civilization where societal norms, even law and order, amount to survival of the fittest.  

 

One woman will lose, leaving the other scorned. Hell, hath no fury… 

 

Survive – Love and Murder in Alaska is the perfect setting for author Clark Wilkins to present his knowledge of survival in extreme winter environments. Realistic plotting, detailed action and complicated relationships culminate in a surprising end that makes for an interesting and informative novel.

East Van Saturday Night – Short Stories and a Novella

"...adventures were undertaken, friendships were forged, and character was created."

Download your copy now at

https://www.amazon.com/-/e/B003DS6LEU

 

 

East Vancouver in the '50s and '60s was a low income, blue-collar neighbourhood. Kids grew up with minimum supervision. They left home in the morning, showed up for dinner, and were gone again until "the gun" sounded at 9 p.m. During the time away adventures were undertaken, friendships were forged, and character was created. East Van Rules was not only meant as a challenge, but also a code to live by.

 

These four short stories and novella highlight coming of age events; a ten-year-old playing for the elementary school softball championship, a teenage tough strutting his stuff at the local dance, a hippie youth hitchhiking across Canada during the Summer of Love.

 

Watershed moments told from a perspective that explains why you can take the boy out of East Van, but you'll never take East Van out of the boy.
