The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket

by Edgar Allan Poe

I really liked this book a lot, but was terribly disappointed when it just ended suddenly, leaving the reader just hanging there wondering what the heck happened. Imagine my surprise when checking out books to download last night, I discovered that the book was continued and completed by Jules Verne!! The continuation is called "An Antartic Mystery" by Jules Verne. I'm on the last chapter right now and he's getting ready to disclose what happened to Gordon Pym! Gotta go finish the book now!

'Jesus Himself'

by Andrew Murray

I can't believe this was written in 1893 -- it's as fresh and relevant as if were written yesterday -- if you are hurting and your life is full of problems due to the present economic situation in this country, read this sermon! I guess the answer has been around a long time -- and it's one we need to learn over and over again . . .

A Spinner in the Sun

by Myrtle Reed

I read Myrtle Reed's book "Old Rose & Silver" and liked it so much that I downloaded this one, and I liked it even better! Myrtle Reed is a very good writer and this book grabs you right from the first paragraph and doesn't let you go! I could give a better description of the book, but I won't because it would have too many spoilers, but this is a must-read and I highly recommend it.

A Christmas Carol

by Charles Dickens

I can't believe I'm 51 years old and never read this Christmas classic before now!! It is so much better than any of the many movie versions that I have seen!! A wonderful wonderful story, timeless, and beautiful, and haunting. I can't recommend this book highly enough.
