[Review]—Shea Ernshaw's "Long Live the Pumpkin Queen"

Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas has become a cult classic, a must-see watch on Halloween and Christmas. For many years, there have been rumors (or talks) of a sequel, but nothing has come to fruition, with the exception of the recently released young adult novel Long Live the Pumpkin Queen by Shea Ernshaw, published by Disney Press.

Review - The Unlucky Ones by Stacey Marie Brown

While cleaning up the downloads folder on my laptop, I came across The Unlucky Ones by Stacey Marie Brown (Audible, Kindle, Paperback). Caffeinated Reviewer sent me the audiobook (along with another title) in August 2019. I reviewed the other audiobook fairly quickly, and later; I listened to the first two hours of The Unlucky Ones. Forgetfulness? Procrastination? Whatever the reason might be, I spent the last few days listening to the 520-minute story.

Review - Pimsleur Approach French I

A few my readers may remember my review for the Pimsleur Approach Spanish 1 that I posted in. The only foreign language class that I took in high school back in the late 90s, was French. Lets just say that my gradse weren't that impressive and beside for pronouncing a few numbers, I don't remember a bit of what I learned.

It is difficult to learn a new language out of a text book and that is one of the reasons why I was interested in reviewing the Pimsleur Approach programs in the first place.

Unlike other programs, you don't have to download a program to your computer to use the Pimsleur Approach French I. The program is an audio only program, featuring 30 units on 16 CDs with each course being 30-minutes in length, meaning anyone can find time during the day to learn a new language. It is recommend that you play each course in order with no more than one course a day. If you don't think you have grasped a course, just repeat it the next day.

Talk Like a Pirate with Under the Black Ensign

Today is the official International Talk Like A Pirate Day (yep, there really is such a thing.) When people think of pirates, they probably think of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. Personally, I think of my elementary and high school years, as the schools' logo was Pirates!

Earlier this year, I reviewed the swashbuckling adventure tale Under the Black Ensign by L. Ron Hubbard. It was originally published in the August 1935 issue of Five Novel Monthly, but Galaxy Press has brought the short story out on paperback and an audiobook.

To celebrate the pirate holiday, I thought I would share a snippet of my review.
