Daily Deals: Two Mitch Albom Books, Princess Academy and Daily Cardio Workout

Have a Little Faith: A True StoryToday Amazon offers Have a Little Faith: A True Story by Mitch Albom just for $1.99

Albom delivers a command audio performance. He brings his two clergymen-protagonists-an elderly rabbi from Albom’s home synagogue and an African-American pastor leading a ministry to Detroit’s homeless population-to vivid life and conveys their messages of faith with sensitivity and respect. The audio’s most memorable moments feature the humility-and eccentricity-of the two spiritual leaders who, despite their deep religious commitment, refuse to be placed on a pedestal. From the ail-ing Jewish leader breaking out into whimsical songs in the middle of his grueling medical treatments and his Christian counterpart savoring the joys of barbecuing, Albom’s characterizations brim with humor and compassion.

Princess AcademyAlso you can buy Princess Academy by Shannon Hale just for $1.99

Grade 5-9–The thought of being a princess never occurred to the girls living on Mount Eskel. Most plan to work in the quarry like the generations before them. When it is announced that the prince will choose a bride from their village, 14-year-old Miri, who thinks she is being kept from working in the quarry because of her small stature, believes that this is her opportunity to prove her worth to her father. All eligible females are sent off to attend a special academy where they face many challenges and hardships as they are forced to adapt to the cultured life of a lowlander. First, strict Tutor Olana denies a visit home. Then, they are cut off from their village by heavy winter snowstorms. As their isolation increases, competition builds among them. The story is much like the mountains, with plenty of suspenseful moments that peak and fall, building into the next intense event. Miri discovers much about herself, including a special talent called quarry speak, a silent way to communicate. She uses this ability in many ways, most importantly to save herself and the other girls from harm. Each girl’s story is brought to a satisfying conclusion, but this is not a fluffy, predictable fairy tale, even though it has wonderful moments of humor. Instead, Hale weaves an intricate, multilayered story about families, relationships, education, and the place we call home. –- Linda L. Plevak, Saint Mary’s Hall, San Antonio, TX
