Bazooka Joe and His Gang
This little book celebrates the cast of cartoon characters that have kept Bazooka chewers chuckling for six decades (the comics will be replaced by brain teasers and activities this year). It’s a sweet treat for your inner kid.
Lincoln Unbound Exploring Lincoln’s dedication to the values of hard work, discipline, and self-determination, National Review editor Rich Lowry argues that following the example of the president who led us away from slavery can help us escape our current economic malaise.

Lincoln Unbound is a refreshing look at an historic figure. It was pleasant and encouraging to get an alternative perspective of Lincoln and his views. For a non-fiction book this was an easy read. Don't expect this to be a biography of the man so much as a fresh look at his writings and actions of his time and how they relate to our current political climate.
