Lancelot Blackburne’s book reviews

Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations should be required reading for anyone interested in economics, history and politics.

Smith's arguments about the role of government and the reasons wealthy nations are wealthly

Wealth of Nations is one of those rare books that is still relevant over 200 years after it was published (in 1776) and will still be relevant 200 years from now.

Many people mistakenly think Smith favoured laissez-faire capitalism. He didn't. Read it for yourself and discover what Smith really advocated. His arguments still resonate across the centuries.

Becki Willis - Christmas Crimes in a Small Community
FEATURED AUTHOR - As an avid reader herself, Becki Willis likes to write about believable characters in believable situations. Many of her books stem from personal experiences. (No worries; she's never actually murdered anyone.) She's won several awards, but the real compliments come from her readers. Becki loves spending time with her family, unraveling a good mystery, traveling, dark chocolate, and strong coffee.  As our Author of the Day, Willis tells us all about her book, Christmas in The Sisters.
