To begin with, I will tell you that Barnes and Noble are HACKS for not carrying Lisa Samson books. Last night, the MOG got back from a 2 week tour and whisked me off on a date. We had Italian food, smoldering glances and then, the bookstore. Where I tried to buy books from my favorite and was thwarted by an overwhelming collection of Amish fiction and Old Western marriage-of-convenience-that-turns-to-love novels. And, no hate, because I have read all of those, but on the rare occasion that I am actually going to purchase a book and not just check it out from the library, I want it to be a good one. All that to say, I was bummed.
If you are going to buy a Christian fiction novel, make it a Lisa Samson or James Scott Bell. Every single book by Lisa Samson, and I like all JSB's books, too, but my favorites are Try Dying, Try Darkness, and Try Fear. They are funny, suspenseful sort of mystery novels with a wisecracking lawyer lead, and his nun sidekick. Seriously entertaining.
If you are going to buy me a novel, make it The Passion of Mary-Margaret, since they don't have it at B&N. It is painful and beautiful and real and honest.
Now, for my product reviews: things I bought on Ebay
2. Deep Water Bath Overflow Cover. I don't remember what it cost. Somewhere around $5 with $3 shipping. It suctions onto the tub over your drainy-overflow-protector-thingy and lets the water come up high, eliminating the Lameness Factor of a 3 inch deep bubble bath. I give it three enthusiastic thumbs up.
So there you have it. I was not paid by anybody to review this stuff, but if anybody wants to pay me or give me free stuff to review, then, okay. I agree.
