Just thought I would let you know what you can look forward in regards to coming reviews. I have been told to enjoy this "free book" thing in careful moderation...If I were to have eaten all the books that I now am obligated to review, I would fit the well established and generally overused complaint against bishops and their substantial girth. Good thing my name isn't Ezekiel (3:3).

Heard WAY to much about this book. Expectations are at an Everest kind of level. It makes me not want to like it. But so far so good.
Also he's a part of "The Elephant Room" coming up at the end of March, so I'm looking forward to hearing from him and others.
"LIFE OF ANDREW JACKSON" ed. JOHN S. JENKINS

I thought I told you I hated biographies? Have I learned NOTHING from 5th Grade History class?? But actually, I'm pretty excited about it. It's a reprint of the 1850 version. Compact, rugged edges. Kind of exciting to look at. (I am first and foremost a book collector, not primarily a book reader)
I think it's intended to be a supplimental text for homeschooler.

A nice gift Bible I look forward to giving to a special kid.
FROM THE LIBRARY OF A. W. TOZER ed. JAMES STUART BELL provided by Bethany House Pub.
So, I thought, A. W. Tozer... it's about time I read some. Never have. Always thought I was missing out. What a great opportunity. I need to learn to read the descriptions... The book is not a compilation of HIS writings, it is a compilation of works by authors who had an impact on him. DOH! Will have to buy [gasp] a Tozer one of these days.
I am, however, eager to read this compilation of writings from authors who greatly influenced A. W. Tozer...

Look at the cover. Just look at the cover! Of course I requested this book. No it does not fit on the bookshelf, but... well... I WANTED IT! It's supposed to contain a biblical perspective on such matters. Although during the "New Arrival" perusal I did see "apocrypha" more times than I wanted (i.e. Daniel "14" - "Bell and the Dragon")
SUMMARY I think that's it. I'll let you know. If you REALLY want to hear about one over the other, let me know. I now take requests :)
