Running Free – Breaking Out From Locked-In Syndrome

Kate Allatt

Price: FREE

This book was amazing. The pain and agony that this woman had to go through was so tear-jerking! I feel for this woman in so many way because my mother was in the same situation at one point in her life. I can really see the deep emotion that penetrates through the author’s words. This book tells of a courageous story of a woman who overcame so many obstacles to get to where she was at the end of the book. At first, people did not believe that she would ever be the same after her travesty but slowly she overcame what everyone thought was impossible! A great book for all ages and all genders! I give this book 5 stars not because of the beautiful story but because of the beautiful writing! Great story I recommend this book to anyone!

One of the most moving and inspirational books I’ve ever read about a remarkable woman. — Dancing on Ice judge Jason Gardiner

“Kate’s life was torn apart … her recovery has been amazing” Daily Mirror.

When this book arrived in the Lovereading office it was snapped up over 4 consecutive days by 4 different people. Each reader was moved to both tears and laughter and read it virtually in a sitting. Running Free is a moving and inspirational story of survival that celebrates life, friendship and sheer bloody-mindedness. Please do read it – Love Reading

Running Free is a life-affirming and upbeat true story. It proves miracles can happened if you have the determination, and love and support of your family and best friends.

Can you imagine being trapped in your own body? Able to see and hear everything going on around you but unable to move or speak – the blink of an eye your only way to communicate. Super-fit young mother-of-three Kate Allatt’s life was torn apart when she became locked in her own body after suffering a massive stroke caused by a blood clot to her brainstem. Left totally paralysed and unable to speak, her chances of survival were 50/50 and doctors said she would never walk or talk again. She wanted to die. But her family and best friends willed her to live and with their love and support she channelled her sense of fun and fighting spirit into making a miracle recovery that amazed medical experts. Using a letter chart Kate blinked the words “I will walk again”. Soon she was moving her thumb and communicating with the world via Facebook. Eight months later she said goodbye to nurses and walked out of hospital to return home and start training for her first run.

Tweeting Church: How Christians Can Use Twitter to Spread the Gospel and Connect Communities

Paul Clifford

Price: FREE

Tweeting Church, puts twitter in a whole new light, showing not just pastors and church goers how to better use the social networking of constant updates. There are so many different ways to use the medium, and to get the message of the Good Lord out into the world. AS well as updating on other things that might interest you that you can be a help to those who may need it an don’t think they do. Specially since Twitter is a medium where you follow people and get updates daily. I have learned so much from this book, and I really cant explain the things that I learned without writing the book here. I hightly recommend this to anyone who has thought Twitter was just a place to put your daily routine every five minutes. It is so much more than that.

Ryan

We live in a time marked by change. Electronic communications enable any message to reach virtually any person in virtually any part of the world. In this world, how can something originally written so long ago compete? Is the message that was originally called “Good News” still as relevant in the age of electrons as it was in the time of papyrus? How will you use this new technology in ministry?

In the follow-up to his successful book Podcasting Church, Paul Alan Clifford seeks to answer these questions and more:

What is Twitter?
What kind of account should you have?
How can you regularly tweet without repeating yourself?
How do you keep spammers at bay?
How can you reach people that need to hear Christ’s message?

This is a book for every Christian interested in spreading Christ’s message of hope and forgiveness, in an age increasingly marked by distraction and background noise, needs to read. This is an opportunity that the Church can’t pass up to communicate its message.

Mud, Sweat, and Tears: The Autobiography

Bear Grylls

Price: $1.99

I don’t expect to read a celebrity autobiography and come out hating the guy, but what struck me about this book is how Bear Grylls seems to be a regular guy, not in the sense that we could all join the SAS and climb Everest, but in his utter devotion to his family and his faith, coupled with a drive to live a good life as a husband, father and adventurer. It almost seems as though he was born a couple hundred years too late, given his British colonial sense of exploration (but not exploitation).
This book is fast-paced and well-written, with short chapters that keep reeling you in through his story. When I downloaded it last night, I couldn’t put it down. Bear is a good example of what can be accomplished with hard work and focus. He doesn’t try to gloss over his shortcomings, he seems to embrace them as a springboard to make himself a better man. I could never accomplish what he has from a physical standpoint, but this book does a great job of transmitting this sense of wonder and adventure to the reader. In the end, it’s almost as if you have shared his adventures. It is a terrific book.

D. Buxman

“Bear Grylls is a veritable superhero….The former UK Special Forces paratrooper has braved the world’s harshest environments.”
—Hampton Sides, Outside Magazine

“Bear Grylls is one tough, crazy dude.”
—Washington Post

Already a #1 London Sunday Times Bestseller, Mud, Sweat, and Tears is the adrenaline-fueled autobiography of the mega-popular star of the hit survival series Man Vs. Wild, adventurer Bear Grylls. A former British Special Forces commando, a man who has always sought the ultimate in dangerous challenges, Bear’s true story reads like an outdoors action and adventure novel. But Bear’s story is true—full of breathtaking escapes and remarkable exploits that would make any Jack London or H. Ryder Haggard hero proud.

Love is a Verb: Stories of What Happens When Love Comes Alive

Gary Chapman

Price: $1.99

Have you ever picked up a book just because of the title? This is such a book for me. I was intrigued by the thought of “love being a verb” so I began to peruse the book. I loved the short chapters with meaningful stories. I enjoyed the scripture verses and author’s comments at the end of each chapter. This book was easily read but putting into application all of these thoughts will take time, my time.
Each chapter was written by everyday people with their everyday struggles and challenges but with endings that encourage and uplift the reader.
The final question is how will this book change your life? Love IS a Verb. Do it!

Dawn Ewing

Dr. Gary Chapman has spent his life helping people communicate love more effectively and in turn build more satisfying and lasting relationships. His book The Five Love Languages is a regular on the New York Times Best Sellers list–even after being in print for fifteen years–and has made the term “love language” a part of everyday speech.

Love Is a Verb takes his teaching to the next level. Rather than a typical marriage self-help book filled with lengthy explanations of principles and techniques, it is a compilation of true stories displaying love in action. These stories–written by everyday people–go straight to the hearts of readers, who often say that illustrations are the most effective parts of a book. Gary Chapman adds a “Love Lesson” to each story, showing readers how they can apply the same principles to their own relationships.
