I received a book today that I had won a couple of weeks ago, The American Journey of Barack Obama. I haven't read it all yet but I did spend several minutes looking through it and it's very interesting. My comment is this, and it's not something that just came to mind, I've thought it for some time - why all the hoopla about the first black president? Mr. Obama is half black and half white. The last time I checked half and half meant two EQUAL parts, right, so he's just as much white as he is black. Yes, he looks black and he's married to a black woman but he's still half white. And not that it makes any difference, but yes, I did vote for him and not because of his color.
I'm an Iowa gal and live on an acreage with my hubby and several cats. My husband is bi-polar which makes life interesting and frustrating at times. We have 1 son who also lives in Iowa. I've always liked to read and I'll always give my honest opinion about books and everything else (which sometimes people don't appreciate). I also love to enter sweeps, do different crafts, garden, and spend time with friends and family. You can reach me by emailing winterset AT peoplepc.com
Due to the fact that I sometimes forget to say, please always assume that all of the new books and products that I review are ones that I have received free, in exchange for a possible review post. Whether I win a new book or purchase a used book at a flea market or garage sale and review it, does NOT affect my reviews. I always try to be nice, but if I don't think something is great, I’ll say. When I'm finished with a book (or product), I either keep it for myself, or give it away to someone who I know will enjoy it. I DO NOT SELL the books or products that I have received for free.
