Book Short Summary:

So, you are wondering about this goofy title, eh? The first part “Somebody” is a word in the first poem of the book. The poem is based on a Beatles Song and is an “anthem” against school shootings. The middle part “Kartoffelklösse” is from the middle poem in the book. That poem recalls the delicious German potato dumpling recipe my cousin has kept alive in our family. The last part “Chicken Scratch Christmas” is an “ode” to a dance music developed by the Tohono O'odham people of the Southwest and also about not having much, but each other, at Christmas time. Pick up my first poetry book “Stolen Poems carried by Canoe to Blind Man’s Bluff” or a Chicken Scratch Christmas Album. Now you know. -Bob

Book Short Summary:

Louise Weible is married to her husband, Larry. They have three children, Larry Jr., Timothy Wade, and Laura Louise. While a stay-at-home mother, when the children were young, she took a writing course with only a glimmer of where it might lead to. Later as a real estate agent, she found good fun in writing her own advertisements for the newspaper ads. Upon joining the Writers Group, a dormant dream began to emerge. With the groups encouragement she began to write a column for a local newspaper. And finally, at long last, she began a long dreamed of project that told of her mother and fathers meeting, courtship and marriage during W.W.II; most of which is portrayed through these letters from 1941 until 1945. It is written from Dads letters that he sent home and which Mom stored away with great care. It is a story of ordinary people with human frailties and strengths and some humor; longing and striving for what they believe will be an extraordinary life together when the war is over. She hopes you enjoy the reading of these letters as much as she did when she recorded them for her widowed mothers re-enjoyment but whose eyesight was failing. Her mother gave Louise the letters, knowing how much she had always treasured them and would keep them safe and intact. She transcribed these letters in this book with her mothers permission and blessing; as long as it was done honorably. She never once, upon reading these letters, read one that was not honorable. They depict the man, as he wasa loving, kind and gentle man who made promises. He kept those promises. He was our hero. He still is.

Welcome to Christmasland A Town Where All Your Christmas Dreams Come True When Emilia told me she won an all inclusive trip to Christmasland, I laughed. Outloud. Surely a place like that didn't exist. Boy, was I wrong. Now I'm stuck on holiday repeat where everywhere I turn there's Christmas carols, sledding, cookie decorating, and holiday cheer. All of which, I'm told, is part of the "experience" of Christmasland. But I can't believe that. A whole town dedicated to recreating a Christmas movie for all of its guests? You've got to be joking. Until I start checking off the list of events. Rescued by a Handsome Stranger who's Back Home from the Big City ✓ A Overzealous Town Busybody who seems Determined to Change my Grinchy Spirit ✓ A Baking Competition I Couldn't Possibly Win ✓ A Montage of Feel Good Christmas Events ✓ An Interrupted First Kiss... ✓ Now I don't know what is real and what is fake. I know I have feelings for the grumpy Hero, but I can't tell if he returns them. In a place that peddles in fake realities, this is the first experience I wish was real. I want to believe in a Christmas miracle, but my holiday history has told me, Christmas comes with nothing but disappointment. I've never gotten a happily ever after and I doubt that will change now. If you love laugh out loud holiday romances, you'll love Christmasland where the cliches are leaned into and the sap is drizzled thick. It promises to make you laugh, make you swoon, and leave you feeling excited for this holiday season. Grab your copy today

Book Short Summary:

From Oxford professor and renowned British composer, a joyous account of the history behind our favorite carols. Everyone loves a carol—in the end, even Ebenezer Scrooge. They have the power to summon up a special kind of mid-winter mood, like the aroma of gingerbread or the twinkle of lights on a tree. It’s a kind of magic. But how did they get that magic? Andrew Gant—choirmaster, church musician, university professor, and writer—tells the story of some twenty carols, each accompanied by lyrics and music, unraveling a captivating, and often surprising, tale of great musicians and thinkers, saints and pagans, shepherd boys and choirboys. Readers get to delve into the history such favorites as “Good King Wenceslas,” “Away in a Manger,” and “O, Tannenbaum,” discovering along the way how “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing” came to replace “Hark, how all the welkin’ ring” and how Ralph Vaughan Williams applied the tune of an English folk song about a dead ox to a poem by a nineteenth century American pilgrim to make “O Little Town of Bethlehem.” A charming book that brims with anecdote, expert knowledge, and Christmas spirit, this is a fittingly joyous account of one of the best-loved musical traditions.
