Book Updates and Polar Express online for the kids

Currently reading Transfer of Power by Vince Flynn on my tablet. I downloaded it for free one day and I'm so glad did, I'm really enjoying it, very hard to put down. You can actually still read the first chapter for free but its no longer available as a full download for free.
Transfer of Power look on the right hand side for a button that says "read first chapter".

Up until Monday night you can still catch the online storytime on Barnes and Noble's site, December's book has been The Polar Express read by Chris Van Allsburg. The title changes on Tuesday, January 3rd.
Our son received two of the Find Waldo books for Christmas and just loves them. He got the first two books of the series.

Also, before Christmas we heard about The Elf On Shelf, I wasn't thinking about getting it until we saw it in Target and I explained to our son what it was all about. He then had to have one so we adopted our Elf with the book in a box and took him home. The following couple of weeks of finding our Elf, Nick, around the house each day was a huge event leading up to Christmas. If you can still find one in stores on online consider purchasing it ahead of time for next Christmas. I'll post more about this later.

I'll also be posting some of the free downloadable books in the future, it seems you must be quick on some of them, because they end quickly.
Here's the first one, only available this weekend.
Two books - Bad Radio and Walker by Michael Langlois.
