It’s the first Sunday of Spring, the robins are flying around the neighborhood, the Japanese lady beetles are all over my bloody house, the lawn service is coming to fertilize the lawn this week, the propane tanks are filled for lots more grilling (to be honest, in Wisconsin, we still grill in the winter, we just have to shovel our way to the grill). Could it be that we are done with snow for the year? Again, it’s Wisconsin; I doubt it. Just a couple of years ago we got 24 inches of snow at the end of April in about 18 hours. So I’ll just enjoy the weather but the snow blower and parka and winter boots are not being put away.

Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption $2.99 I remember listening to the audiobook from the library back in when this book first came out. What an amazing true-life story.
In boyhood, Louis Zamperini was an incorrigible delinquent. As a teenager, he channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics. But when World War II began, the athlete became an airman, embarking on a journey that led to a doomed flight on a May afternoon in 1943. When his Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean, against all odds, Zamperini survived, adrift on a foundering life raft. Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor; brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would be suspended on the fraying wire of his will.
Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller, Sr $1.99 Excellent book about the man who made so much much, it puts Bill Gates to shame, that’s just how wealthy Rockefeller was in his day.
From the acclaimed, award-winning author of Alexander Hamilton: here is the essential, endlessly engrossing biography of John D. Rockefeller, Sr.—the Jekyll-and-Hyde of American capitalism. In the course of his nearly 98 years, Rockefeller was known as both a rapacious robber baron, whose Standard Oil Company rode roughshod over an industry, and a philanthropist who donated money lavishly to universities and medical centers. He was the terror of his competitors, the bogeyman of reformers, the delight of caricaturists—and an utter enigma.
A ruined woman like her, has limited options…
What could have been a fairytale beginning turns out to be this bride’s nightmare.
Answering a mail order bride ad, Wilhelmina travels to Montana in hopes of a fresh start. Instead of meeting Wilhelmina at the train station, her husband-to-be is in the center of town brawling.
Marcus Hamilton is blindsided twice. First, by a mail order bride ad posted for him by his mother and sister, and secondly, by the exquisiteness of the woman who arrives to marry him.
When his bride to be wishes to cancel all plans after he fails to make a good first impression, how far will Marcus have to go to prove his worth?
When Lady Emily is trapped while fern hunting in an old mine shaft overnight with irresistibly sexy Lord Markshall, she indulges in the sin of his delicious, melting kiss. After all, it’s just one night… Until the newspaper gossip forces him to propose. Lady Emily can’t marry him, but a fake engagement can save her ruined reputation and prevent her scandalous secret from being revealed.
The censure of prim Lady Emily is the ideal way for Lord Markshall to reinforce his image as a scoundrel and a rake. He didn’t mean to compromise her, or to be overcome with desire for a clever woman hiding her real self. But to protect her, he’ll have to choose: his covert mission or his heart.
There are three things you need to know about Ashley Winston: 1) She has six brothers and they all have beards, 2) She is a reader, and 3) She knows how to knit.
Former beauty queen, Ashley Winston’s preferred coping strategy is escapism. She escaped her Tennessee small town, loathsome father, and six brothers eight years ago. Now she escapes life daily via her one-click addiction. However, when a family tragedy forces her to return home, Ashley can’t escape the notice of Drew Runous—local Game Warden, bear wrestler, philosopher, and everyone’s favorite guy. Drew’s irksome philosophizing in particular makes Ashley want to run for the skyscrapers, especially since he can’t seem to keep his exasperating opinions— or his soulful poetry, steadfast support, and delightful hands— to himself.
One billion dollars.
An ex-cop with nothing to lose.
