@B.J. - I did something similar for my kids at Easter when they were younger. Each followed a 'Bunny Trail' of clues placed in plastic Easter eggs (a different color for each child). I would get up at 5:00 AM on Easter Sunday to hide the eggs all over our property. I finally stopped when my youngest was 16. She still wanted her 'treasure hunt'! (Perhaps that was because, since she was the only one left at home, her prizes had grown to be pretty nice!)

@Robb, thanks for checking. I suspect it was something objectionable in one of the descriptions of the books I was posting and it was just too late for me to spend time deleting them all, after I had created them - from Amazon's own site anyway. Guess it is okay to be in their book description but not in the forums :)

Will check the profile and edit profile and see what it says. Looks like they changed it to my "real name," and not sure why. This is fairly new to me, so may have to check that out more.

No problem Robb. I thought maybe you had already turned in for the night. I have bookmarked the list now and discovered that Leo's birthday is on Friday. I'm so glad you are opening that day which I'm sure you planned. ;-)

I'm off to bed now as I have physical therapy at 7:30 tomorrow morning.

Thanks all for the picks I stole from you today. Many were already Yellow Banners (previously taken books) for me, but I managed to grab a few.

Good Night All! Sweet Dreams!!!

The Spaces Between (A Drunkard's Journey)

****** This is not a serious fantasy book. ******

It may be marbled with veins of darkness, but its promise is adventure. People die, fights erupt, and assumptions are shattered. But all in good fun.

The Spaces Between follows the path of several characters across a world where advanced magic is possible, but yet people read by candle light and fear the dark. Men who have spent their lives in taverns can suddenly travel a thousand miles through wilderness. Mercenaries believe they can learn magic form blubberingly-mad warlocks, and simple-minded farmers are guided by the spirits of the dead.

If you want to read a serious tome of roaring, rolling fantasy; an earth-shaking, ground-breaking book, this is not for you. But if you want to spend a few hours in the company of a bunch of fun characters in a world where normal is undefined, and where darkness is merely a murky evening on the shores of fantasy, read on...

Now, for the "real" description of this work:

A gruff mercenary believes he can somehow learn magic from an exiled warlock, and he's picked up a blundering drunk along the way. Zhy, convinced he is part of some misdirected script, agrees to follow, hoping only for a change of scenery and a new source of ale.

The two men run into a trigger-happy mage and he joins the excursion. It isn't long before this combination of characters results in calamity and errors in judgment; their "quest" becomes nebulous and uncertain-that is, until it smacks them collectively from the face of the world.

Guided by the spirits of the dead, an idiot man-child is close behind them. He obligingly trudges along a frozen and bitter path to stop Zhy from reaching the warlock, though he himself is only part of a devastating scheme.

*** Includes Chapters 1-3 of Part II: Dead Spaces ***

Zoo Keeper says:
My recipes are the toss in some of this and some of that. It's hard to be really exact. I use leftover chicken from one I roasted or boil some legs or thighs. (sometimes a combo of all the above.) Then shred it.

I use about 4 quarts of broth, either from the chicken or from a can or a combo. Add chicken.

Dumplings--I use a basic biscuit recipe. I usually double it, because we like lots of dumplings.

2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tsps baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
Enough milk or buttermilk to make a sticky, but formed, dough. About 3/4 cup.

Mix flour, baking powder, salt. Add shortening. Cut shortening into small pieces. (about pea size or smaller) Add milk.
**I put all this into a KitchenAid Mixer and let it form a soft, slightly sticky ball around paddle.

Then drop by small spoonfuls (I use the small spoons from my silverware) into boiling broth with the chicken. After they are all in, turn down heat to low/med. Let simmer about 20 minutes.
**You can roll these on floured surface to about 3/8" and cut, but dropping is easier.

When self-made property developer, Niall, is attacked by vampires on his way home, his neat and ordered life soon begins to fall apart. His rescuer, the effervescent Mel, declares herself to be his Muse - better known in modern times as a Guardian Angel - and offers him a business proposition; she wants them to go into business as supernatural detectives.

Slightly sceptical to say the least, Niall eventually agrees to work one case with her - helped in no small part by his rather strong attraction to Mel.

Mrs Hart's house has been plagued by a series of deadly and inexplicable events, culminating in the death of a local boy. As they look into possible causes, Niall finds himself growing even more fond of Mel, although she seems determined to keep him at arm's length.

He discovers why she she is so reticent but that is soon overshadowed by the cause of Mrs Hart's problems; a foe so powerful that even the immortal Mel seems terrified!
