Ryan DeJonghe - The Avid Reader

I didn't always read, but that changed in June of 2013. I dropped the unnecessary stuff and picked up the awesome stuff--like reading! I started posting my reviews on Amazon and within a few months rose to the top 0.1% of reviewers. My reviews then went to Goodreads, and now my blog (http://ryandejonghe.wordpress.com) and Twitter (@Ryan_Reads). If you are reading this, why not leave a comment or send me a note? I love talking to other folks about books and my reviews. Publishers and authors, feel free to drop me a note if you want me to review your book. I usually stick to mainstream publishing, but I'll consider anything. If I review your book, I’ll give you a fair and thorough review and let you know when the review goes live. You can reach me at dejonghes@gmail.com. Happy Reading!
Reasons My Kid Is Crying - Greg Pembroke

Cute. There’s no better word for it. It’s relatable and funny. If you’ve been to the blog, you know the book. Every page is a picture and description, with a few chapter introductions and personal stories to break it up. The stars of this show are the kids. By the time you are done laughing and reminiscing, you’ll probably think of a few pictures to add of your own.



I read (and laughed through) this book on my own, then again with the wife and kids, and now again at lunch with my boss and co-workers. Cute. Cute. Cute.



I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review. You may want to check out these other links…
