Source: Proper Pallet Preparation (I could not resist)
Though not what you would expect on a book-centric blog, I couldn’t resist “pressing” this because:
a. I enjoyed it – it made me laugh. This is the most fun thing I’ve read about working with pallets.
b. A friend of mine had a similar experience trying to work with free wood pallets (though his had some weird – possibly imported – bugs, so he ended up consigning them all to the burn pile).
c. I’ve been wondering what the “press this” button did and decided to take the lazy way of finding out – clicked on the button and let it do it’s thing.
So, there you are – enjoy!
Theodora (Theo) Tenpenny’s grandfather, a security guard at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and a painter, has recently died. This leaves Theo to care for her reclusive, eccentric mother and their ramshackle New York City home with only $463. Her only hope of not losing her home, and ending up in foster care, lies in her Grandfather’s last words to her, that there is a letter and a treasure “under the egg.”
Convinced that she was doing what was best for him, Holly broke up with her high school sweetheart after he left for MIT. Eight years later, Josh is back in town for his best friend’s wedding and, despite the hurt that he still feels, finds himself searching for any excuse to spend time with Holly.

“Lost, without his memory, in an unfamiliar world, Erik Farrell must piece together a new life for himself. Can he survive as the only living boy left in the world?” (title page)
From the back cover:
She was a nun of noble birth. He, a heretic, a reformer…an outlaw of the Holy Roman Empire.
In the 16th century, nun Katharina von Bora’s fate fell no further than the Abbey. Until she read the writings of Martin Luther.
His sweeping Catholic church reformation—condemning a cloistered life and promoting the goodness of marriage—awakened her desire for everything she’d been forbidden. Including Martin Luther himself.
Despite the fact that the attraction and tension between them is undeniable, Luther holds fast to his convictions and remains isolated, refusing to risk anyone’s life but his own. And Katharina longs for love, but is strong-willed. She clings proudly to her class distinction, pining for nobility over the heart of a reformer. They couldn’t be more different.
But as the world comes tumbling down around them, and with Luther’s threatened life a constant strain, these unlikely allies forge an unexpected bond of understanding, support and love.
Together, they will alter the religious landscape forever.
