The Poisonwood Bible, by Barbara Kingsolver.
Here's your chance to get this bestseller by Barbara Kingsolver at a bargain price.
"Every great novel has characters who grow and change. Nathan's change took place in the Pacific in WWII. He does not change again and grow beyond that point. While he expects the Africans to change into Christians, they are constant in their own culture. That leaves it to the women of the Poisonwood Bible to change and grow. And, they do not disappoint us. Like other readers, I found the first 100 or so pages slow going. I almost put it down. But I am so glad I persisted. I highly recommend the Poisonwood Bible, and hope that there is enough that is unique in the above to justify posting a 489th review." -- Patricia A. Powell

"Amusing, full of life and worth reading. I won't go into the details, because many other people have, but I love a book that is perfect for winter reading, you are inside, want to go outside but the day is blah!! This book makes up for all that and has you laughing, too many books leave you feeling unsettled and dissatisfied, this book delivers, makes it a must read and a good book to re-read. Enjoy it!!!" -- Trinigal67

Return From The Stars (Helen and Kurt Wolff Books), by Stanislaw Lem.
This seems like one of those "must haves" for a sci-fi library. Though not a big reader of sci-fi, I do read it, and will likely add this one!
"A quiet masterpiece....This is one of those books that you read, put down, read again and then find something that is scarily predictive of not the far future, but of recent times. " -- Joanna Daneman

My Name Is Not Easy, by Debby Dahl Edwardson.
This one sounds really good... I love a good kid's book. Oh, Kindle Daily Deal, you're going to make me go broke1
"The most powerful stories have qualities that are unique and universal. Debby Dahl Edwardson's MY NAME IS NOT EASY is such a story. In some ways, it is a classic boarding school story, and in others it is uniquely Alaskan. Edwardson draws characters from distinct backgrounds and cultures and throws them together in a strict Catholic boarding school where they clash and bond and grow together. There is heartbreaking loss, there is new love, and there is a growing understanding of the importance of standing up for what you believe in and the power of civil disobedience. Edwardson's lyrical prose draws the reader in to the landscape and culture of northern Alaska, a world that is foreign to most of us." -- Jane Buchanan
