Janette Oke Flick, Three Large Print, Jewelry


Love Takes Wing starring Haylie Duff, Patrick Duffy, Cloris Leachman, Lou Diamond Phillips. Small town doctor Belinda fights an unknown plague. One town member blames the disease on the local orphanage while Belinda swaps spit with the local blacksmith.
You know what I really dislike about these Janette Oke movies? They're sneaky. These DVDs are pretty popular here but a new DVD will get released and I won't see the release. So, I end up being late ordering the darn thing.

Large Print

Washington Crime and Columbine


It's Pimpin' Pimpin' by Kat Williams. Concert performance by stand-up comic Kat Williams. Williams may be familiar after several acting jobs in the movies.

Lars and the Real Girl starring Ryan Gosling, Emily Mortimer, other people. Lars loves his life-sized doll, Bianca. When he gets feelings for a real person the love triangle causes trouble.


Wicked Prey by John Sandford. Let me take a wild guess. A vicious killer (or rapist) is on the loose in Minnesota and must be caught by series hero Lucas Davenport.
Dang! I was wrong. The Republican convention in St. Paul has crazies running around.

Road Dogs by Elmore Leonard. Three of Leonard's characters from previous novels meet and take on a job together. With sex and backstabbing.

The Way Home by George Pelecanos. Chris finds a a body in a house he is remodeling. He leaves it alone to avoid trouble. Then, Chris goes missing.
Pelecanos is so good that even his abridged audio versions are great.

Summer on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber. Some book with a small dog on the cover.


Columbine by Dave Cullen. Cullen did extensive research for ten years and clears away the rumour and myth of Columbine; hesets the record straight on what happened and who the two kid murderers really were.

Dynamic Color Painting for the Beginner by Diane Edison.

Perennials for Midwestern Gardens: proven plants for the heartland by Anthony W. Kahtz.

Obama: the historic campaign in photographs by Deborah Willis and Kevin Merida. I'm regretting this purchase already. For three reasons: 1- The campaign is long over and the President has been in office for over three months. 2- Political books are always iffy here. 3- Photography books are even more iffy.
