Two Novels and Two Old CDs That Were Sitting Next To The Novels


Returning by Ann Tatlock. A Christian romance with little plot description on the back cover.

Batter Off Dead by Tamar Meyers. "A Pennsylvania Dutch mystery with recipes." Avoid.

Music CDs

Come On Over by Shania Twain. Our lost copy was replaced.
Twain seems like a nice gal. I suppose she is still single. You can fly over to Switzerland and woo her. Of course, O.J. Simpson used to seem like a nice guy too. Maybe Twain is a werewolf like John Oates.

Glide by Jerry Douglas. Mentioned before but the CD had to be reclassified into our Country section.

Two Audiobooks and One CD

Music CD

The Boxmasters by The Boxmasters. Some sort of music by a musical trio featuring Billy Bob Thornton. Sound bites here.


Angel Creek by Linda Howard. 8 CDs at 9 hours. Orphaned lady running family homestead in Colorado gets into fight over water rights with her hunky neighbor. Be still, my beating heart.

Volk's Shadow by Brent Ghelfi. Colonel Alexei Volkovoy runs a criminal empire while dealing with matters of state security. When an American oil company headquarters is bombed by terrorists it looks like Volkovoy may have been the real target. Gritty and violent.

The Usual Repeats Plus One by Gischler


Gun Monkeys by Victor Gischler. Idiot with a itchy trigger finger travels through Florida chased by cops.
If you like this book you can check-out the several other Gischlers we have.

Fireflies in December by Jennifer Erin Valent. Jessilyn's father vows to take in and care for Jessilyn's best friend Gemma after Gemma's family dies in a fire. Jessilyn is white. Gemma is black. They all live in a small Virginia town in 1932. Guess what trouble starts.
This had a neat review and should be pretty good reading.

Plague of Doves by Louise Erdrich. A long ago murder murder in North Dakota sets white and Ojibwe communities against one another.

The Usual

Under the Radar by Fern Michaels. The usual.

Dark of Night by Suzanne Brockman. The usual.

A Darker Place by Jack Higgins. The usual.

The Associate by John Grisham. The usual.

An Older DVD and Three CDs


Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants starring Amber Tamblyn, America Ferrera, Blake Lively, Alexis Blidel. I bought this as a replacement and bought the so-called "box set" by mistake. The box set came with this movie, the sequel movie, and a paperback of the novel.


Exclusive: the forever edition by Chris Brown. I'm not sure if this is rap, r&b, or soul music. Comes with a DVD disc.

Live at the Troubador by Daryl Hall and John Oates. Did I order this? Was it a donation? Two discs from their 2008 performance at a club in California.
Hall an Oates were big when I was in elementary and middle school. After the band broke up the rumor was that they broke up the band because one of the guys was gay and made a pass on the other. That kind of rumor is accepted as truth by an eighth grade guy. The truth is that the guy with the mustache turned into a werewolf.
Remember that goofy looking bass player? I wonder what he is doing now.

Greatest hits: volume 1 by Rascal Flatts. Sixteen songs (three Christmas tunes) from the popular country trio.
