Living My Best Book Life

I give 100 Drives, 5,000 Ideas 5 stars. It’s a must have for travelers who enjoy going on road trips. The information is really helpful and gives readers a feel for each city that could be visited. The photos were stunning and will give readers exactly what they want. MORE


Man of la Book

I thought I’ll only find national parks in this book but to my surprise the author included some big city parks (New York City’s Central park, for example). My favorite section was about day trips one could do with the family (or alone).

This is a great book for anyone planning a vacation, or in need of some vacation ideas. I can see our family referencing this book for a very long time. MORE

“What is wrong and what is right these days? It was getting awfully hard to tell in California.”

In 1888, a killer stalks San Diego. He’s already struck twice, horribly and coldly murdering two of the town’s most prominent men. Not only that, he’s written a letter to Nick Pinder, star reporter of the San Diego Times, justifying what he’s done.

This is a killer with a conscience, a man fearing how taking a life affects him. MORE
