Literature Alive! book reviews

A DAY SPENT WITH THE BOOK "LITERATURE ALIVE!"
 
This same day, I gathered the kids for the beach (lake) and checked the mail on the way.  There was this big fat book in my mailbox!!  Boy!  Was I ever SO excited!!   I could hardly not stop reading it all the way to the lake.  It took LOTS of self-control!   :)  Then I had to decide to bring the book to the shore????  I HAD to!  I had waited so long for it.  It went on a hike, then crossed the river in two places before I got to the beach with me carrying the baby at the same time.  We swam for half an hour, then I sat (cool) finally and purused the book, yelling at any kid that came near me dripping wet.   I wondered, oh, did I blow it! Should I have left the book in the car???  It survived the trek and the wet kids.  I already went crazy reading this and that...now I am trying to go through it in order.

I LOVE IT!!  YOU DID AN INCREDIBLE JOB!!  I AM SO EXCITED TO BE A PROUD OWNER OF "LITERATURE ALIVE!"  I am showing it to everyone!

What can I say ???!!!!

Your book is fantastic -- I've eyeballed through the whole book, and read a few selected areas,  and it's just so well done, cohesive and informative and lights a fire for literature in the reader !  You covered such a great span of literature topics inside and out and upside down and sideways and all the way out to space !!!!   And the Feasting on Storybooks section is so neat !  What a great addition - I know folks will gain so much insight from this.  Denise in Ohio

I just received Cay Gibson's Literature Alive! book 2 days ago and finished it in 2 late evenings!  I really am excited to recommend it to others as a wonderful resource full of many ideas for parents with kids of all ages wishing to tie in books more as a lifestyle rather than just reading aloud.  Lynne M Santos, Washington, IL

Just wanted to let you know the book arrived this afternoon.  I have read about half.  I will write more when I finish it but I want you to know I am in love with it!  I am passing the word along about the book.  I can not keep my mouth shut about a book I am falling passionately in love with each page I read!  I am trying to read it quickly so I can read it a second time slowly and make personal notes.

I am gleaming ideas, traveling down memory lane, etc...  Please write another book soon!!!(on my knees begging)  Thanks for the wonderful addition to our family library. 

Cay, I have finished the book.  I am so impressed with your insight for literature!!!  I am now going "to fill in the gaps" with a second reading using rabbit trails, personal observations, etc.. I have never been so quick to do a second reading of any book in my lifetime... believe me I have read quite a few... but this book has inspire me to keep learnining.  I believe you have accomplished your goal, Cay.  Thank you so much for making the time in your busy life to put this masterpiece together.  You have definitely left your mark on the world of literature.  Congratulations!!!

 I just received the book yesterday from Weed Hill and I am so very excited.  Thank you for daring to write your book.  I say that not because of content but because it is not easy to find a niche among so very many books available.  My sister, the Lord clearly made a way for this book.  I love the format and set up and I am sure to love reading it all!! Although I only just started reading last night, I felt to let you know that the Lord's hand is evident in this project and I thank you and your family for your labor of love. Clara in Miami

I received my book on Tuesday of this week.  It is wonderful!!  I have already recommended it to many of my friends.  I love that you wrote it in such a fashion that your Christian walk shines.   Thanks for all of your hard work and effort that went into this book.  What a fun read!  I have over 2,000 books in my home library.  I can't wait to start "the hunt" for all of the living books in my collection.  Thanks for the inspiration!

Thank you SO much for writing this book!!  It is phenomenal!  I am so enjoying every moment with it.  This truly is a fabulous book.  You even stated at one point, what could one say about Literature??  Well, so far, you have quite a bit to say!!  This is definitely one of those books you pick up when in need of inspiration!  I also, was so very pleasantly surprised by your inscription and autograph.  Thanks!   Linda

IT DID ARRIVE!  Yippee!  Oh! And it is everything you all said it
was... and more.  I leafed through it and now I am really excited to get back to our studies (can't bring myself to say school, just doesn't sound right, not with the ideas presented in this book anyway).  Lydia just tried to snatch it from me while I was logging on to share the news.   I can tell we will have to learn to share. ;o)  Ahhh! Mother and daughter' culture.  Louise

I heard about it (Literature Alive!)on another list and just had to have a copy when I read through the table of contents. Many new and creative thoughts and fantastic quotes I'd never heard before have been leaping out at me from those pages. I am really relishing it! Thanks Cay!

I have been meaning to let you know that I did receive your book last week and it is a beautiful book with lots of great and useful information.   It will definitely last a very long time around here. ~Martina in IL

I received my book yesterday.  I am so excited.  It looks just beautiful.  I love the way you had it done with a soft cover and spiral bound.  This will make it easier to carry places in my bag and easier to read because I can open the book up all the way and even on around. ~ Shellie

Oh Cay...I love your book!  You have been with me to many places!  Mostly you have been my "Mother Culture for the last 2 weeks...Thanks for such a treasure!  Its kinda like having deep meaningful conversations with each of those people who wrote those articles and thoroughly enjoying their company awhile...finding like-minded people that speak of things close to my heart! ~ Donna Marie
