Book Review Time To Lie by Phil Taylor

phile taylor a time to kill read booksHave you ever wanted a future version of yourself but that it could come back and be a force working against you? Time to Lie by Phil Taylor is a thought provoking novel to show you how your truth is I just a lie chosen to believe and everyone has this choice.  The book starts out when the main character is Landon a man who is rushing to run down the stairs to catch his first kiss with a girl, but the first kiss is just looking with his eyes.  Landon will get the opportunity to studying physics in college under a renowned professor.  Landon misses the bus ride.  He has two friends in college and loves the college life of independence.  His father was a firefighter and has passed away whom Landon misses.  Doctor Kuroda plays a role in Landon’s life and at the first meeting Kuroda hands Landon a worn card first edition of Joe Namath rookie card, it was just like the one his dad gave him on his tenth birthday, the one he thought was in his wallet, which he would for years pull it out and reminisce about his father and his love of the JETS team. How did that happen?  I think that this is where the reader wants to keep reading!  It was interesting to learn that Landon has Asperger a which is a syndrome that is on the high functioning end of the spectrum. Affected children and adults have difficulty with social interactions and exhibit a restricted range of interests and/or repetitive actions. Therefore Landon, I believe is a geeky nerd type of personality which others judged him. This was a unique take on the “time traveling” concept, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Authors: Stop Selling Short


Today, I wish to talk about something that has been bothering me for a while. Time and time again I notice that books are being sold for as cheap as 99 cents. I am not talking about the used or unwanted books you sometimes see at the entrance of libraries. I am discussing about the ones that are being sold online, brand new and in various formats.


Why would an author sell years of his hard work, hours on end sitting, pondering, late night struggling while going over his written work, and  paying thousands of dollars to have it edited only to then sell it for 99 cents?


Do we have such an abundance of books out there that their work is only worth 99 cents after everything they go through to publish it? If yes, why bother?


Are they playing the number game? Assuming they will sell in millions and so 99 cents will still make them a profit?


Are they just doing all this for fun? They don’t anticipate any sales and so they do not care what the outcome is after it is published?


If you value and deem all this hard work to be worth only 99 cents, why would anyone else value it any higher?


In fact, if you dig deeper into the psychological influence you make in having a potential reader ponder over buying your 99-cent book or someone else’s 10-dollar book, you will notice that the buyer will pick the 10 dollar one.


This is because they unconsciously believe that if they buy a book that is 10 dollars then it must have something more to offer than a 99-cent book.


It is like the catch and chase theory. If you offer something for free, then it is not that appealing. If you make it a challenge, then everyone will be interested and will want to know what all the fuss is about.


People don’t buy a book because it is cheap, they buy it because it sounds good, the reviews are good, and the cover is appealing. So in my opinion, you are selling short on everything you sacrificed in producing. Why should you not enjoy having the satisfaction of expressing your thoughts in your book and also enjoy the exposure of it along side the financial security of which it brings?


Next time you wish to give away something for free, please consider, it maybe worth more than that.

I think it’s about time for another book tag! PAGESANDTEA tagged me for The Anonymous Bookaholics Tag, thank you!

Everything! I am a book buying lover!  I love walking into the bookstore and having so many new books tempting me, and looking for the most striking covers, reading blurbs on the back of books, ending up wanting about 5 new books and having to decide which one I’ll choose on that particular day and which will go onto my wish list. I have to say I love hard cover copies of books more than ebooks.  I do read both types.


I buy most of my books today in resale stores.  I always love to go on the treasure hunt in the thrift stores and I always go home with atleast two books I have not read before.  I usually hunt for the authors I am currently reading like Brad Meltzer, John Grisham, Johnathon Kellerman.


I love hard copy books, so going to thrift stores is what I prefer.  If it’s a true crime, thriller or self-help book I will opt for the online ebook to read.


I love Boarders for a book hunt but I also love Amazon online books, and Abe books because of the discounted rate.


Not usually, but I do buy them as soon as they come out.


No not really.  If I want to read a book I buy it even if I cannot get to reading it right away.  I have moved and donated all of my books over the years that right now I am building up my empire of books as we speak which entails of maybe 20 books.




I keep my want to read or buy books in the Amazon wish list so I don’t forget.


I wish I owned all of Nicholas Sparks books.

I wish I owned all of Iris Johansen books.

I wish I owned all of Brad Metzler books.

So, what about you? Are you a bookaholic? 
Feel free to consider yourself tagged and have fun answering the questions. 
See you next time for another book tag!

The Kindness Challenge Book Review

The Kindness Challenge_Cover2.pngthe-kindness-challenge_cover1

The Kindness Challenge that takes 30 days is a great challenge for any spouse or relationship to test how you can sweep away your negative biases. The author introduces you to a host of people from around the world that she has tested  in her research to prove this challenge works.  The author addresses the denial most of us are in about how we treat other people. Just being kind to others will help change our culture.  This is a very inspirational book.  Thank you to “Blogging for Books” for my advanced copy for an unbiased review to be posted.  @ 2017  JACKIE PAUJLSON


Book Review of The Kind of Torts by John Grisham


The King of Torts by John GrishamD2.jpg

Can a drug which was tested on human subjects make them commit random and senseless killings?  Do pharmaceutical companies want to pay settlements to cover it up?

This couldn’t be more perfect to read as I am in college and learning all about legal issues.  This is one of my favorite authors now that I have read this legal and suspenseful book.  I was surprised how much I already knew in the legal issues with regarding how pharmaceutical company’s make bad drugs with so many side effects that it is easier to make the drugs and settle out of court and still make a profit for drugs that should not be given to consumers. D1.jpg

The Character of Clay Carter is very realistic!  The book opens with Clay being a Public Defender with a law degree working in Washington D.C. in a police department.  Yes, his pay being very poor, who would rather practice law at a much higher pay rate.

Clay is given a case to defend Tequila Watson, a man accused of a random street killing.  But to his surprise, he is visited by a mysterious man named Max Pace.  He wants to arrange a series of large pay-offs to a bad drug nicknamed “Tarvan.”

Tequila Watson and others are recovering drug addicts and were experimented on illegally by an unnamed pharmaceutical company.  This was a total page turner!  Pace pays Clay a lot of money to set up his own law firm to handle the victims.  Clay got enough money to specialize in the litigation of torts and he hired his friends who he knew could handle such a task in a fast manner.

Of course the book has a romance with a twist.

As fast as Clay earns the top ten highest paid lawyer in the country he later becomes reckless and is subject to investigations for various crimes, including insider trading.  In the end Clay is beaten up by men from Reedsburgh, which send him to the hospital.  He loses a huge case against Goffman and previous clients sue him.  To that end, Clay loses his wealth, his dreams, and flies to London on the private jet, to start a new life, with his girlfriend only to sell his jet to keep afloat financially in his future.  I would recommend this book to anyone with a passion to learn about law.  Of course this is a fast read and total entertainment.  @ 2017  Jackie Paulson
