Life is Short, So Read this Fast!

By: Ann Ipock

Life is Short, So Read this Fast! is the second of three books written by Ann Ipock. They are a collection of her newspaper articles and other writings. This particular title covers topics from fun women groups, bare necessities and family memories to the battle of the sexes that occur during every daily routine item. Also included are chapters dedicated to food, shopping and growing pains that females experience.

Ann Ipock has written the ideal book for the busy woman. The short chapters are perfect for squeezing in reading during even the most hectic of schedules. Chocked full of Southern flair and quick wit, readers will be kept on their toes as they are taken on a ride through life. Despite the fact that most chapters are humorous, the writer shows a deeper side by sharing her emotions and fears, as well. Overall, this book is a fast, fun read and one that people will savor and cherish for a long time.

I Talk Slower than I Think

By: C. D. Bonner   Format: eBook.   Read: November 2014

This is a collection of stories to remind adults of every age of a simpler, more hands-on era.

I Talk Slower than I Think is a nod to the good old days. Filled with southern expressions, each chapter relays an old family story passed down from previous generations. This book will have readers laughing out loud, as well as a few nodding along as they relate to certain events. Although there are some stories that are more emotional than entertaining, overall this is a feel-good book that both Southerners and Northerners can appreciate.

 

Enjoy!
