A Sharpe DVD! (other stuff too)


Sharpe's Challenge starring Sean Bean. Whoa. Sean Bean is looking old. I don't recognize the storyline and the credits say "based on the novels by Bernard Cornwell" so I think this is a mix of the novels and the screenwriter's imagination. Anyway, Wellington sends Sharpe to India to investigate a local Maharajah's threat to British power.

Firehouse Dog starring Josh Hutcherson and some hairy dog with floppy ears. This is a kid's movie but that's okay. Hollywood's star acting dog Rex gets lost in an unfamiliar city. Rex is taken in by 12 year old Josh who's dad runs the local fire station. Hijinks ensue.


Daughtry by Daughtry. So, what's the deal with this guy? He was on American Idol of something? Well, his album has been selling real well.

Kirk Franklin Presents Songs for the Storm Volume One by Kirk Franklin. A compilation album from contemporary gospel star Franklin.


These Boots Weren't Made for Walking by Melody Carlson. Chick-lit novel where career girl loses job, dumps cheating boyfriend and moves back to her ski-resort hometown and her divorced and dating mom.

The Dead Whisper On by T.L. Hines. Hines' Waking Lazarus has been checking out prety well so I bought this latest one. Seems like a sort of horror or suspense novel. Maybe both.

Knife Edge by Malorie Blackman. "Persephone Hadley is six months pregnant with a mixed race baby...the baby's father, Callum, is dead. He was hanged for terrorism months ago...Callum's brother Jude, blames Sephy for the death and thirsts for revenge." Shelved in the YA section.

Ravens of Avalon by Diana L. Paxson. Paxson continues Marion Zimmer Bradley's Avalon series. A novelization of the story of Queen Boudica, raised as a druid and married to King Prasutagos who submits to Roman rule. When Prasutagos dies Boudica is abused by the Romans and leads a rebellion.

Devil's Labrynth by John Saul. After his father dies, grieving fifteen year old Ryan's mother sends him to St. Isaac's boarding school when his behavour is uncontrollable. Ryan arrives wehn St. Isaac's is in turmoil following aviolent death and a disappearance. A new priest arrives to perform secret a exorcism of the school. But, Ryan suspects that evil is being invited in, not pushed away.


Running With the Devil: The True Story of the ATF's Infiltration of the Hell's Angels by Kerrie Droban. I was living in Peoria, AZ in 2003 when there was a major bust of Hell's Angels members and club houses. The bust was possible through the infiltration the Angels' clubs by the ATF and Phoenix PD detectives.
