May 2017 Book Fun Magazine by Book Fun Magazine 
Really enjoyed this magazine this month for a few reasons.
The usual contributors and more, insight into their lives and i enjoy following them and their family and travels.
New authors and their works that are available to read and review. That's what I really appreciate from this magazine every month is what you can learn from it.
Beautiful pictures to help tell the story and there are recipes to enjoy.
You too can join and they will give you free books to read and review. It's that easy.







 Mister B: Living with a 98-Year-Old Rocket Scientist by A.L. Byk
I was given the book by the author via Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and this is my honest review
This book starts out with the family moving into their fathers house. Love hearing of the blimps and what they were really all about. Same with Apollo explosion and why although the officials never told you.
The father (father in law), Mister B loves to learn how things works, like a computer so he studies at his local library-walking there as he no longer drives. He doesn't have a computer just wants to learn all about them.
So many other subjects come up. Helium in TX-this guy would do well on Jeopardy. The family is giving it a year to see if they like living with their father before they decide what to do next. They had sold their house but didn't make much money on it as they owed so many people money.
Love the pictures along the way. Book is set up like a diary or journal where it's written in on a daily if not weekly basis. Love time spent where prayer and much thought goes into things they always wondered about.
Living in Woonsocket, RI growing up near cotton mills. Love what they all sacrifice so an old man can remain in his house.

Looks great! I especially like the healthy slow cooker recipes -- I have a cookbook similar to that and it's so helpful to be able to look at a list of possible substitutions to tailor the recipe to how I want it. Thanks for sharing!
