A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Pro-Oxford Comma, Catholic (with Asperger's) who reads and writes as her obsession. I've been reading over 400 books a year lately. These are my ramblings on some of the books I read. To read about all the books I read and comment on, visit me at LibraryThing or Goodreads.

I've been blogging since 2007 and at this point (July 2015) am trying my hand at turning the theme of this blog towards mystery, thriller, and crime, fiction and nonfiction. I have some special interest topics and categories within this broad genre which include (but are not limited to) serial killers, scandi-crime, Victorian history and historicals, history of the criminally insane and asylums, psychopathology, death, funerary practices and burial, corpses, true crime and anything dealing with the real life macabre, or that portrayed in fiction.

I also read a short story a day from various collections, sometimes anthologies othertimes collections of a single author's work. These reviews are also posted here and while they are of mixed genre the mystery, thriller, horror, gothic and macabre often appear within their pages as well.

I also blog about
graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.

109. Children's Bible Story Book

David C. Cook Children's Bible Story Book

Pages: 407
Finished: June 18, 2008
First Published: 2006
Genre: Christian
Rating: 5/5

Reason for Reading: We read a bible story every school day.

First sentence:

In the very beginning there was God, but nothing else.

Comments: I have been reading this aloud to my 7/8 yob for the last year, one story a day every school day. I don't want to count exactly how many stories are present but there are a lot with just as many for the New Testament as the Old Testament. The stories are well-told in an easy going, engaging text that is simple enough for children to understand. Many stories have a "Did You Know?" section with interesting information on being a Christian or Biblical history relevant to the story. Plus every story has a "To Remember" section with an applicable Bible verse from the NIrV Bible. The illustrations are a bit wishy-washy but there are plenty of them and the book is very colourful and appealing. In my son's own words he said "I love this Bible". Recommended for GR. 1 to 3. 3rd graders will be able to read for themselves.

  1. I'm glad I just found your blog! I had a book similar to this when I was a child and have been looking for something like this for my 15-month old daughter. Thanks for the recommendation!
