I grew up with little critters but we had a yard sale and my mom sold them because we thought other children might enjoy them. However, a few months later we found out that I was pregnant so I've started to buy them for my son so he has them to read.

I've been looking for the Stone Camp book for sometime as it was sold out on Amazon! How exciting to find it here. I love Overstock!

My little boy loves this series of books. This one in particular is fun because he can kind of act out the things in the book. We read it every night before bed and he won't miss it for anything. He is almost 3 and the amount of words on each page are perfect for his attention span. It also teaches him how to behave. If ever he does something that dinosaurs shouldn't do, I can remind him that dinosaurs don't do that and he quits whatever it is. This would make a great gift as well as adding it to your own collection!

Our eight year old daughter loves this book. She uses almost everyday during the summer months her in Wisconsin. Whenever she finds a new insect in the backyard out comes the 'bug' book. She looks to see if she can find the insect in the book and then reads all the interesting facts about them. What a fun learning tool. She even totes it to the neighbors house to share with her friends as they hunt for insects and learn fun facts together!

I needed these three books to complete my collection of this series. It worked out to be cheaper here than if I bought them at the bookstore, so thats always a plus! :) The only problem I had was that it took FOREVER to get here! Everytime I called Overstock they had no idea where my package was and couldn't tell me anything. It took almost a month to get to me, but was well worth it! (I've ordered from here before and gotten my products within days! This one was just a slacker!)

I have bought and read another iPhone development tutorial book before but this one is much better written in a way I almost enjoyed reading it. This is going to be my first iPhone application development experience and I am very excited to start because I am confident that I have a book that will help get me through development/testing phases. Reading programming books can be overwhelming and most of those books out there are so intimidating. This book has enough or more than enough technical contents to get me started and complete somewhat competent application (I believe). I am looking forward to get their next book that is more advanced one in the near future.

The pictures are very nice and clear, and there are several different patterns to choose from. Would make a nice gift for just about anyone. Be sure to get yours before these are sold out.

I have been searching for this book in the continuing allan Lewrie series but it has been out of print for years. I found out that it was reissued and overstock beat its nearest competitor by miles. I will be ordering more books from overstock. i didn't know that Overstock sold books.

crossword books were received in good time and having to return anything was hassle free.

I had been working out for 3 years and running on the treadmill as well...just basically maintaining my weight. I started reading this book knowing my blood type...and it works. With the continued exercise, but diet changes based upon this book, I lost over 40 pounds in 5 months. Realize that the weigh loss seems to occur in steps, but I went from around 245-250 lbs. down to a very consistent 205. My cholesterol is down to 125, triglycerides, 27, etc., etc. etc. This not only brings down your weight, but makes you healthier on the inside. I haven't been "sick" in almost a year and even my seasonal allergies seem to be lighter than before. I recommended to a friend and work who's a body builder at 189 lbs. and he still lost 10 lbs. in 2 weeks. No kidding.

Even though it says this is the second book it is really the first one. I have enjoyed all 11 books. The start of the series grabbed my interest right away. It took me right into the realm of the "Wheel of Time" You do not want to put down the book. If you have not read them you are lucky I did not start reading them until after the first 5 were written. It was great being able to have all 5 to read at once . You have all 11 ahead of you. The book starts out with the introduction of the main character Rand a nice young man who does not have a glint of his purpose in the world. To save it. I love the way Jordan brings this young man who seems like a nobody along a path that hones his burgeoning powers. A path strewn with struggles and pain. Alone against almost impossible odds he must save the world without knowing how. He refuses to recognize who he really is. He does not want to believe it. Though others tell him he ignores them which leads them into fighting for their lives. This book will keep you on the edge of the dimention, will you fall? I did and loved every minute of it. If you like this kind of reading, if you like getting into the people on the pages then this is for you.

For some reason this book was on backorder and I called local bookstores and they were sold out. Overstock had it - at a great price. Great book on Green Smoothies and getting started in making it a way of life and health.

Sold out in all my local book stores, I was surprised to be able to get it at Overstock and at a good price. The book is a great read for women over 50. I really enjoyed it. I found myself saying "yes" to all her comments about what was happening to her.

Between a Rock and a Hard Place is a story of the most extreme survival that highlights the determination and will of human beings to survive. In my opinion this story has many positive and negative aspects. The way this story is written includes one or two miniature “adventures” between each chapter of the main story. This gives the story an interesting twist, but I often find myself wondering if I am still reading the main story or another of his adventures. Even though they are, in my opinion, very interesting and add to the book, I feel that their placement throughout the story could be better. Since each mini-adventure is only several pages long, the majority of the book focuses on his survival while his arm is trapped between a rock and a granite wall. The story seems fairly interesting, and holds my attention rather well in the beginning, but, seeing that it’s a 354 page book, after those first couple chapters it becomes boring very quickly. Each day seemed the same to me. He would make minor adjustments to become more comfortable and would attempt to free his arm, but after the first attempts he made it obvious that the rock trapping it wouldn’t budge. At this point I was almost 100 pages into the story and, based on the cover, the conclusion was obvious. I feel that if he would have summarized his experiences into one or two chapters it would have been just as efficient and more interesting. Regardless, during the end of the book the story seems to pick back up, and I once again enjoy it. The second thing that I noticed while reading this story is that Aron Ralston doesn’t write like a regular author would. In many ways it adds to the story, because he can include his own emotions and feelings about his experiences, but it also takes away from the story. It feels to me like his writing is unprofessional. The story seems to lack the style that I have seen and loved in so many other adventure books. I assume that this is because he is a full time mountain climber and a part time author and admire his determination to share his experiences. Overall, I did not care for the story; however, it did have select chapters that I found interesting. It included many of his feelings and emotions that made the story interesting, but seems to be drawn out to much. I feel that at several points throughout his story he could remove excess information to give it a more professional feel and make it a more enjoyable read.

About two years ago I saw Barbra on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" promoting this book and I've wanted it ever since. However, the $60 price was too expensive for my budget. Imagine my surprise when I realized Overstock sold it for almost half the price! This book was well worth the wait and delights in so many ways. It's a journey with Barbra through her renovation project as well as a glimpse into her soul. Her passion for design is also a testament to her belief in the impossible, her drive for perfection, and her pursuance of beauty. Personally, I learned as much about design as I did about dreaming bigger dreams and being willing to fight for them.

I think this is a very practical ceramic book for beginners/ students. I bought mine sometime ago to use as a reference I kept handy on my work bench. I am a potter/instructor for over 25 years now. I recommend anyone starting out in this career have one of these on hand. I have a collection of almost every ceramic book ever written, but this handbook shows the most wear out of all of them.

This is a big book and has lots of recipes. I tried a couple and they turned out OK. My biggest problem is there is almost no pictures in this book. I know this is a paperback book but it would be nice to have at least black and white pictures. I am a visual person and i get motivated to cook something when i see something that looks delicious. With this book it feels like i am reading a yellow pages.

Reading is a great pastime that promotes imaginative thinking, relaxes your mind, and gives you a greater understanding of humanity, but it can be difficult to know where to start.

Children's bookshelves and other kids' storage, as a rule, should be low to the ground. Furniture tip-overs have accounted for almost 15,000 childhood accidents each year from 1990 to 2007, according to the Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. Children often reach for items on the top of bookshelves, causing tip-overs. With low-to-the-ground kids' storage, children can easily reach their favorite books without parents worrying about the furniture seriously injuring their child.
