The main character Cassie just recently moved to Grimstad, North Dakota for a new job with the police force.  The area is a booming area with newly found oil and a quickly growing community.  Soon after starting her new job she finds herself in a major investigation.  I enjoyed this book because it had a fast paced plot and the characters were interesting as well  Check our Catalog

This book was a quick read with it's fast paced plot that kept the story moving.  At times during the story you find yourself somewhat rooting for Cassie even though she shouldn't be rooted for.  The story is about Cassie, a spy for the U.S. who completed her mission in Russia, trying to escape Russia and also preventing herself from being terminated by her bosses.  Check our Catalog

Kevin Costner plays the part of Jim White, who is a high school coach and a teacher.  He keeps getting fired from his jobs and his family is forced to move to McFarland, California.  He ends up coaching the school's first cross country team.  The team ends up running better than White can imagine.  This was a good up-lifting movie about the real McFarland cross country team.  Check our Catalog

Reese Witherspoon delivered a good performance in this movie based on a true story.  Reese plays a woman who chooses to do a 1,100 mile solo hike of the Pacific Crest Trail to help her find a way to move forward with her life.  The movie showed flashbacks of the reasons she needed to have this time to reflect and finally forgive herself.  I thought this was a decent movie and would recommend seeing it.

My initial thought on this book "How interesting can a book about seeds be?"  The author's writing style changed my mind, he makes seeds interesting with his story telling and conversation. The author creates interest with his conversational writing style and humor. Through the author's stories I learned a great deal of information about seeds and human history.  I learned new ways of seeing how something as small as a seed can cause great change in the world.  This is definitely a book to read whether you enjoy gardening or not.

The story is about Alex Cross dealing with his wife's, Maria, murder through flashbacks and trying to capture a serial killer Michael Sullivan.  Throughout the book Alex deals with trying to find Maria's killer and he feels like he has found her killer, Michael Sullivan (aka the Butcher). The story was interesting and the audiobook kept my attention. The narrators were good at bringing the story to life through their different voices.

The Periodic Table: A Visual Guide to the Elements

This book was a surprise to me on how interesting it was.  I initially thought I would be flipping through the book looking at the summary section and pictures for each element.  Instead I got hooked on reading the history of the elements and how it is used in our world.  The writing was interesting and not your typical boring scientific writing that I expected.

Smart Money Smart Kids: Raising the Next Generation to Win with Money

by Dave Ramsey & his daughter Rachel Cruze



Dave Ramsey and his daughter co-author this book giving parents advise on how to "raise money smart kids in a debt-filled world."  They show how teach your children to work and continue through with what your child should do with their hard earned money (spend, save, give).  The book is filled with principles of good money managment for children as well as stories of Dave's children learning those principles.  Sometimes a co-authored book seems disjointed but Dave and Rachel help this by identifing themselves before each section that they write.  Also by using two different fonts in the book helps the reader know who is talking.  Overall the book is similiar to other Dave Ramsey books but this one is meant to apply to children. This is a very well written book and reads quick with good practical information for being money smart and raising money smart kids.  Check our Catalog

Colon Firth plays a former British Army officer, who was a prisoner of war duing the Pacific theater of WWII.  Colon's character finds out that the Japanese officer responsible for his torture is still alive and travels to confront him.  This movie is based on the best selling book, about his experiences, by Eric Lomax.  I enjoyed this movie because of the history background and the main actors.  If you enjoyed Colin in "The King's Speech" you will enjoy this movie as well.
