Product Review - ShowerMade Quick Dry Shower Tote Bag



Review:  Love it!!!!  A great product for a student in a dorm or someone that likes to keep their things separate from the shower or bathroom. Super quick drying and sturdy with loads of pockets.  I hate when roommates borrow my stuff without asking and if you leave it in the bathroom there is no asking involved so take the anger out of your living situation and keep yourself together and organized for shower and bath time without the hassle of others using it.

Great product for the dorm or anywhere for that matter - the gym, the office gym, the hostel - anywhere you want your stuff organized for bathing and within reach but also drying fast when you are finished.  A great gift idea!!  Merry Christmas.

Book Review - Gray Mountain - John Grisham

20707959
Title:  Gray Mountain
Author: John Grisham

Review:  I find John Grisham’s books of the last several years fall into
two camps.  He is either trying to tell a light hearted tale that
inevitably feels like he is writing to meet a deadline.  By that it seems
he reached a required number of pages and then cuts off.  The other type of
book is when he has found a social injustice in his travels and he wants to
make sure you understand it the same way he does, even if that means he has
to beat you over the head with it until you give up.

Gray Mountain is one of those latter type books.  The crime is the strip
mining of the Appalachia Mountains and the environmental wreck it is
leaving. Now while I agree that it is a horrendous practice that will have
repercussions for many generations, Grisham has no subtlety in presenting
his case.  Imagine the cutest puppy you have ever seen, smiling gently as
he frolics through a field of daisies.  Then imagine Hitler stomping on
that puppies head; laughing.  That is how the case is presented.

I would have preferred to a seen a little humanity from the coal miners,
and a little pretentiousness from the defending lawyers, because it is
always there.  It would have given the reader a chance to think and reason
themselves to a conclusion. Instead it is so one sided I found myself not
trusting the author, wondering what he is not saying.

The B-plot was also very interesting, exploring how the working poor are
beat up by the system and the collection agencies.  For the want of a
competent lawyer these people are buried in the legal system, often with no
way out.  The end up dependent on the state or turn to crime, there is
literally no way to recover. For example you end up 10 dollars in debt, but
by the time the system is done you find yourself owing another 500 dollars
in fees.  They keep piling on until you give up.  How does that help?  That
is why the Old Testament speaks out against usury, making money off other
people’s tragedies.

A good book to get you thinking about these issues, but it will leave you
wanting a more balanced presentation of the facts.

Quick Review: 4 Stars out of 5.
Why I Read it: I enjoy John Grisham and currently up to date with his
books.
Where I Obtained the Book: At my local library.

Synopsis: The Great Recession of 2008 left many young professionals out of
work. Promising careers were suddenly ended as banks, hedge funds, and law
firms engaged in mass lay-offs and brutal belt tightening. Samantha Kofer
was a third year associate at Scully & Pershing, New York City's largest
law firm. Two weeks after Lehman Brothers collapsed, she lost her job, her
security, and her future. A week later she was working as an unpaid intern
in a legal aid clinic deep in small town Appalachia. There, for the first
time in her career, she was confronted with real clients with real
problems. She also stumbled across secrets that should have remained buried
deep in the mountains forever.

Product Review - DE 2600mAh Lipstick Style Powerbank-Portable Battery Charger- with 3 Function Flashlight

DE 2600mAh Lipstick Style Powerbank-Portable Battery Charger- with 3 Function Flashlight (In Retail Packaging)

Review:  Works great as an extra battery for your cell phone that you can take with you in your pocket - the flashlight part works great and had a strobe function - but most cell phones have flashlights anyway so it seems a bit over kill - I do like having extra power when I am gone away from any plugs like at a game - or the mall - etc..... This is a fun item that will keep you connected to the world even when your battery is running low - keep this charged and you will always have power in your palm.

A great gift idea.  Works great for the Windows phone and the Android phones we have at home.

Description:  The DE 2600 Powerbank Flashlight gives you all the power of a flashlight along with the addition. Perfect for outdoor activities and portability. There are 3 flashlight settings to choose from, full brightness, dim, and strobe. This powerbank can charge your phone while using the flashlight function. 

Package Includes:

Book Review - The Cinderella Murder - Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke

21535784
Title:  The Cinderella Murder

Author:   Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke

Review:  I read this book after I had read the last one about the TV program, Under Suspicion.  I had enjoyed that book so this one was a no-brainer and I was not disappointed and I look forward to the next in this series.

The book is number 1 in the Under Suspicion Series and yet the last Mary Higgins Clark has the same set of characters so I guess that one was 1/2 ---maybe?  I liked the flow of the book and the character interaction.  It had an easy to read and put down and then pick right up again the next time I opened the book.

Great story - good character development and characters I actually care about for a change.  I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery.  4 stars for sure.

Summary:  Television producer Laurie Moran is delighted when the pilot for her reality drama, Under Suspicion, is a success. Even more, the program - a cold case series that revisits unsolved crimes by recreating them with those affected - is off to a fantastic start when it helps solve an infamous murder in the very first episode.

Now Laurie has the ideal case to feature in the next episode of Under Suspicion: the Cinderella Murder. When Susan Dempsey, a beautiful and multi-talented UCLA student, was found dead, her murder raised numerous questions. Why was her car parked miles from her body? Had she ever shown up for the acting audition she was due to attend at the home of an up-and-coming director? Why does Susan's boyfriend want to avoid questions about their relationship? Was her disappearance connected to a controversial church that was active on campus? Was she close to her computer science professor because of her technological brilliance, or something more? And why was Susan missing one of her shoes when her body was discovered?

With the help of lawyer and Under Suspicion host Alex Buckley, Laurie knows the case will attract great ratings, especially when the former suspects include Hollywood's elite and tech billionaires. The suspense and drama are perfect for the silver screen - but is Cinderella's murderer ready for a close-up?
