5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Beautiful!, Dec 27 2011
I am a huge fan of A Christmas Carol - bordering on obsessive. I've read the book 45 times so far and still look forward to reading it each year. You probably know how wonderful the book is so I'll restrict my comments to this edition.

I buy every edition that looks particularly attractive or unique and have dozens of them on my shelves.

This edition may well be the most attractive one I have. The illustrations by P.J. Lynch are beautiful and plentiful. I believe there are only three places you could open the book and not see an illustration.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice DVD Player, Nov. 15 2011
I just recently bought this player and I'm very pleased. The picture is sharp enough - not HD, of course but very serviceable.

The handle makes it easy to carry which is a feature absent in an earlier player I had.

I wish the controls on the device itself allowed you… Read more
The Last Greatest Magician in the World: Howard Th&hellip by Jim Steinmeyer
5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Account, March 5 2011
This is another of Steinmeyer's great Docu-Books about the world of magicians - a riveting account of one the all time great illusionists.

When I was a kid and just getting interested in magic, the only books in the local library were about the old-time performers such as Kellar, Blackstone and Thurston. The books were of little use to a seven year old, but they were fascinating all the same. Those books instilled an ever-increasing desire to know more about this great art.

I wish a book like this was available back then.
