I just finished reading “Fragments: A collection of Short Poetry” by Steph
‘Vixey’ Acaster. If I had to choose a tone of the poems I would say -
introspective. If I had to choose a favorite it would be “Gravity”. The beauty
of poetry is that it, like art, is personal and therefore subject to interpretation. There are only a few short poems within the ebook so download the book yourself.
Smashwords is the Amazon for eBooks and Independent authors. If you have a computer you can obtain an ebook. You do not need an eReader it just helps if you do. The beauty of sites such as Smashwords is: 1) you can download a sample of the book in the comfort of your home before you purchase it 2) You can download FREE BOOKS 3) You will come across great authors that you would not have seen in the bookstores 3)Book prices are reasonable.
Many of the eBooks found on Smashwords are available at other book outlets such as Amazon and Barnes and Noble however the price of the book may be increased based on the pricing guidelines of that particular outlet. I recommend you shop at Smashwords. www.smashwords.com

“Rumors of God: Experiencing the God Kind of Faith You’ve Only Heard About”
by Darren Whitehead & Jon Tyson
Within the pages of the book the writers Darren Whitehead and Jon Tyson discuss Christianity as it is today. Despite its’ rather lengthy title, “Rumors of God: Experiencing the God Kind of Faith
You’ve Only Heard About”, and unique cover I expected to read a book written to atheist. When I think of “rumors” I think of information that may or may not be based on facts therefore I expected the presentation of information to support Christianity.
Christians have fallen short of the biblical principles we should be living by, often it is not because we do not know but that we choose not to do what we know. “Rumors of God” guides the readers through concepts of what Christianity should be about; included in the discussion are the taboo topics of giving and forgiveness. The authors reintroduce the believer to God’s standards for living while pointing out how we as Americans have allowed the world to dictate our values. To say this book is about “Experiencing the God Kind of Faith You’ve Only Heard About” does not do it justice.
If you never knew what it meant to be a Christian reading this book would help; if you have developed a routine in your faith walk get this book; and for all other believers use this book as a checklist to determine where you are in your faith walk.” Rumors of God” is a book on Christian Ethics and I recommend you read it.

“The Quotable Rogue” by Matt Lewis is just what you would expect it to be a book full of Sarah Palin’s words. Unfortunately, the internet and the news media are full of Sarah Palin quotes. To be fair I like Sarah Palin but I am not one of those who want her to run for President nor do I believe that she has lived long enough for me to purchase a book of her quotes. (I received this eBook free from BookSneeze in exchange for a fair and truthful review.) Though I recommend this book to my readers I would not say you have to rush out to purchase it, unless of course you are a Sarah Palin fanatic.
I believe if you are doing a research paper on Sarah Palin this would make an excellent reference tool. I appreciate the orderly fashion in which the writer places the quotes which again makes it easy for research. I do like the book I just believe it is ahead of its’ time.The bottom line for me is that “Quotable Rogue” is a smooch fest for Sarah Palin supporters, people who just can’t seem to get enough of her. This book is more than enough! Review Written by Marsha L. Randolph
