Review – Remember God

remember godI loved the theme of cathedrals which is woven through this book. The author has visited quite a few of them all over the world, and she encountered them in surprising ways throughout the year portrayed in the book.

Review – Cut in Half: The Hidden World Inside Everyday Objects

I also enjoyed the sports equipment such as golf balls, a bowling ball, baseballs, softballs, and sports cleats. It was interesting to learn how these items are manufactured and what material is used.

I was amazed at how many famous players and coaches Case has interacted with. … More Review – Playing for More

This is a more realistic/historical retelling, but many of the essentials (like the fairy godmother, the glass slipper, etc.) are still there, though in a creative way. I enjoyed watching out for those elements and then identifying them. … More Review – Ashes of Glass
