Love Does

Love Does

On 6/29 Andy Allen wrote: Love Does is a collection of stories about Bob's life. Each story is told in the animated and forward manner you'd hear if Bob were sitting in your living room recounting the experience.

I Am Second

Our Last Great Hope

Our Last Great Hope

On 1/2 Andy Allen wrote: I was incredibly let down by this book. After seeing all the endorsements I was pretty sure it would be worth my time...but it wasn't.
