Fat Woman on the Mountain: A long overdo book review.

Posted by 7 years ago 4 Comments 1476 views

I’m a horrible reader which makes me a horrible book reviewer. It can seriously take me months to read your average fiction book. Thankfully I discovered James Patterson. His short chapter approach matches my reading style, 2-3 pages a day. Seriously, it’s like I’m a ‘reading grazer’. A little here, a little there. Then I […]

e-Book Review: Habit Guide

Posted by 9 years ago 11 Comments 1332 views

James from Habit Guide asked if I’d be willing to review his (and his brother-in-laws) eBook of the same name. Honestly, I was a little hesitant at first as eBooks are just not my thing. The ones I’ve seen were just really poorly done. But when I found some time I took a look, and […]

A few days ago I received a copy of Body Electric by Margaret Richard to review. I have to be honest, I never heard of Margaret Richard before. Apparently she has been a popular personality on PBS for 18 years, I guess I’ve been living under a rock! The book is split into two parts. […]
