Naughty Needles -Nikol Lohr

Naughty Needles
Sexy, Saucy Knits For The Bedroom and Beyond
by Nikl Lohr
Potter Craft
Copyright 2006 Nikol Lohr
ISBN-13: 978-0-307-33737-5

A light hearted romp through the bedroom with your knitting needles!
Okay, so this 50+ year old woman was simply looking for a pattern to knit panties, when she came across the listing for this book. And this woman [dare I say it…. Me!] was so intrigued I simply had to purchase it!
Fun patterns for everything from the naughty little negligee to a ball gag!
Patterns to play the dominatrix, and patterns to play the bedroom – uh hum, whore.
Patterns are written in standard American English style, and appear simple and easy to follow. They range from the absolute beginner to the intermediate knitter, so that there is something for everyone!
I love Lohr’s writing candor, and saucy attitude!
So… right now, I’m looking to knit the sheer negligee with a pair of striking panties to match. I’ll let you know how well I do….. errr…. How well Texican enjoys the outcome! [Hey... just because there's snow on the roof.... doesn't mean there isn't a fire in the furnace!]
I give this book…
Five Stars and…
…and a big Thumbs Up!

My Way How Elvis Presley became Elvis!

My Way How Elvis Presley became ELVIS!
by Sherry Lee Hoppe
Wakestone Legacy Series
Volume 2
Wakestone Press
Copyright 2011 by Sherry Lee Hoppe
ISBN 13..........978-1-60956-013-3

Written as though every person picking up the book will already know about everything there is to know about Elvis Presley, Hoppe vacillates between denigrating a legend and building it up.

Written for the young adult crowd, I felt it was almost childish at points, and I have the sense that young people will get the impression that they are being treated as imbeciles. Sensitive subjects are treated every which way but sensitively. And the long history of substance abuse, as well as food addiction is treated way too casually.

If a young person is a true, die-hard Elvis fan, they might get a kick out of this book. Otherwise, I’d tell them to leave it on the shelf.

I give the book 3-Stars.

Beckon by Tom Pawlik

by TomPawlik
copyright 2012 Tom Pawlik
Tydale House Publishers,Inc.
ISBN 978-1-4143-3873-6

Few books grab me in the first pages and don't let go. Beckon is just such a book!

Fast paced suspense that keeps you turning the pages as fast as you can. Breathless and breath-stopping the entire novel's length!

Think Steven Spielberg meets Stephen King, and you'll get the idea.

Lost Indian culture with weird shamanic practices that can promise miracle healing and the fountain of youth. Throw in giant blood-sucking, flesh eating, crustacean-like arachnids, and you've got a tale that will make your little heart jump around in your chest!

Love, love, love this book.

Great read! Highly recommend it for the pleasure of an exciting novel! Rate this T for teens and older. [If you like Indiana Jones movies, you'll love this! Hey Mr. Pawlik, when can we expect to see this in a film! I'll be the first to purchase a ticket!!!]

I give this book...

Five Stars and.... Thumbs Up!

The Coming Revolution - Dr. Richard G. Lee

The Coming Revolution
Signs From America's Past That Signal Our Nation's Future
Dr. Richard G. Lee
copyright 2012 Richard G. Lee
Thomas Nelson, Inc.
ISBN 978-0-8499-4829-9

The Coming Revolution is an extraordinary look back at where our Country has been, and those men and women who shaped it. As well as a look into where this Country may be headed if it does not heed the warnings, and live up to the ideals, the founding father's had hoped for, dreamed of,  and set the path toward for today.

Lee tackles the not so PC [politically correct] move away from Christianity, and what that means to the America on which our founders based our Country.

A great book for anyone who fears the direction in which America is headed. I think this would make a great study book for group reads, especially in church groups. And would be a good impetus for classroom debate as well.

I give The Coming Revolution....

...Five Stars and... Thumbs Up!
