So good. Motivational. Read during my winter trip at Joshua tree. Endurance athlete and Navy Seal talking though his struggles to overcome his mind, body, and past to endure though everything he does though hard work and dedication to push himself to do the best he can be and push himself to the limits. Ready for the new year!

Picked this book from the library‘s front picks without knowing anything about it. Ended up being a good based on true events about a young Arab American finding his self and his passion after serval attempts. Although I was already somewhat familiar with the process of coffee trees, cherries, drying and roasting, it differently make you appreciate your morning coffee reading about all the struggles and dangers of getting our coffee to our mug.

Good quick read. Page turning story and short enough for me to finish in one afternoon at the pool. Interesting concept.

Absolutely loved this book! Couldn‘t put it down and red the majority of it in one day.

cherinium This was one of those books I was convinced I would hate. Then I read it. Absolutely loved it. Eleanor and her quirks just really spoke to me in a way I never imagined. 💕 7mo

Awesome! Graphic novel. Mash up of STD taboo fear meets grunge high school drama meets x-man mutations. Very fast easy read with interesting graphics. Very worth ready and could be used for many interesting discussion topics.

Great book for running tips from old style running with current information to fad health comparisons. Great motivation to start or re-instate running motivation and healthy happy life styles.

Unique read I picked up at the local library along the Texas / Ciudad Juarez boarder. Very interesting compilation of short stories that seemingly build from each other. Stories of ancient and legendary evils (demons / coxes) and the people‘s beliefs, culture, disparity and courage tying in modern and historic worlds.

Good and interesting start, but finished several other books before I was able to finish this one...

khb713 I really enjoyed reading this book. It is not only about running but gives an idea about the way of life of Kenyans. 3mo

Good book on the history and picks some of those news stories in a different perspective.

Best novel I‘ve read this year! I found myself getting caught up in all the emotions of Britt-Marie‘s story, even laughter aloud and choked up during this read.

Great book about the power of mind set. So many good nuggets of information for. It only financed but any part of life in general. I would highly recommend any one to read this book who is interested in investing, real estate, or mind set.

Overall I enjoyed this read. Not the most interesting but had good point and reminders of humility, as well as good stories of historic less well known people.
