Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter: A Novel (P.S.) by Tom Franklin
Genre(s): Fiction, Literary Fiction
om Franklin’s extraordinary talent has been hailed by the leading lights of contemporary literature—Philip Roth, Richard Ford, Lee Smith, and Dennis Lehane. Reviewers have called his fiction “ingenious” (USA Today) and “compulsively readable” (Memphis Commercial Appeal). His narrative power and flair for character-ization have been compared to the likes of Harper Lee, Flannery O’Connor, Elmore Leonard, and Cormac McCarthy.
Now the Edgar Award-winning author returns with his most accomplished and resonant novel so far—an atmospheric drama set in rural Mississippi. In the late 1970s, Larry Ott and Silas “32″ Jones were boyhood pals. Their worlds were as different as night and day: Larry, the child of lower-middle-class white parents, and Silas, the son of a poor, single black mother. Yet for a few months the boys stepped outside of their circumstances and shared a special bond. But then tragedy struck: Larry took a girl on a date to a drive-in movie, and she was never heard from again. She was never found and Larry never confessed, but all eyes rested on him as the culprit. The incident shook the county—and perhaps Silas most of all. His friendship with Larry was broken, and then Silas left town.
More than twenty years have passed. Larry, a mechanic, lives a solitary existence, never able to rise above the whispers of suspicion. Silas has returned as a constable. He and Larry have no reason to cross paths until another girl disappears and Larry is blamed again. And now the two men who once called each other friend are forced to confront the past they’ve buried and ignored for decades.

Verso Typewriter Case Cover by Molly Rausch by LightWedge
Genre(s): Kindle Fire Cover, Kindle Fire Case, Kindle Fire Accessory
here’s nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come. Why? Because ideas fuel action, and when somebody takes action…things change. And whether those things are the weekend plans for a group of texting girlfriends or the treaties and declarations that shape the geopolitical landscape of a continent, the origins of change can often be traced back to written words.
Typewriters embody this kind of potential energy,” says artist Molly Rausch, designer of the Verso Typewriter e-reader cover. “Simply by rearranging the 26 letters of the English alphabet, you can say everything that’s ever been said, and there’s no limitation to what you can do.”
This concept of potential energy seems appropriate for an e-reader cover. What words will you download on your e-reader? What changes might they bring to your life—more entertaining evenings at home? More enjoyable train rides to work? Whatever you do, the rugged synthetic cover will keep your device properly protected while the interior cradles it in advanced microfiber, engineered for maximum softness. An interior pocket, meanwhile, hides important documents or receipts while traveling, and silicone-enhanced corner elastics maintain a tight grip on your device that’s guaranteed to last for as long as you have it.

Fearless by Taylor Swift
Genre(s): Pop, Country, Adult Contemporary, Contemporary Country
From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
ike her self-titled debut album Taylor has re-released Fearless in a Platinum Edition, due to the original 13 track 2008 release which has been certified 5 times Platinum. This re-release like her Deluxe Edition of her self-titled album features new songs and a DVD.
The CD contains 5 new songs and a piano version of Forever & Always (previously released on Fearless) & the original 13 tracks on the Fearless album. The new songs include, “Jump Then Fall”, “Untouchable”, “Come in With the Rain”, “Superstar”, & “The Other Side of the Door.” “Untouchable” was performed prior to it’s release on the Clear Channel Stripped site by Taylor as a big promotion for the 2008 release of Fearless. “Come in With the Rain” has been available as a digital download since 2007. I rate the new songs 5/5 because they are all very good and well done. “Jump Then Fall” is currently my favorite new song.
The DVD that comes with Fearless Platinum Edition contains the 5 music videos that have been released prior to it’s release, this includes, “Change”, “The Best Day”, “Love Story”, “White Horse”, & “You Belong with Me”, 3 “on the set” behind the scenes making of the music videos (“Love Story”, “White Horse” & “You Belong with Me”), a photo gallery of the 2009 Fearless Tour, A behind the scenes of the first show of the Fearless Tour in Evansville, Indiana. and the parody video of “Thug Story” with T. Pain that Taylor did for the 2009 CMT Music Awards. There is also 2 different exclusives, one done by Wal-Mart and one done Target. The Wal-Mart exclusive version of Fearless Platinum Edition contains 2 DVD exclusive bonus content of the V-Fest UK: Live performances of “Love Story” and “You Belong with Me” and the Target exclusive version also contains 2 DVD exclusive bonus content of the Clear Channel Stripped performances of “Untouchable” and “Fearless”
All together the album is great and you won’t be disappointed. Please note that there is only 5 new songs, not 6 as advertised seeing as the “Forever & Always (Piano Version) is just that, a piano mix of it’s previously release. So if you are a Taylor Swift fan, you don’t wanna be without Fearless Platinum Edition
