Stories to Drive By Chapter 6: Bathsheba
In this chapter we will be taking a look at a new book from a new author adapting an old but very relevant story. Bathsheba comes straight out of the pages of the book of Proverbs and comes to life in Kay Kelman's adaptation. The story has many lessons that we can all take from it no matter what our walk of life may be. Please enjoy and as always if you have any questions, comments, or something you may like for me to read please reach out to me at Storiestodriveby@gmail.com Special thanks to Alexander Nakarada again for the use of your phenomenal music for my background  and also special thanks to the most wonderful mother in the world, Victoria Kelman.

Stories To Drive By: Chapter 1
Stories to drive by is an opportunity for you to learn about a book you may have otherwise overlooked or not heard of. It is a chance for me to share my love of literature with you the listener and to perhaps interest you enough in any given story to entice you to go out and pick up a copy of it for yourself. Today I will be looking at "A Princess of Mars" By Edgar Rice Burroughs. If you do not know that title it was made into a movie titled John Carter not all that terribly long ago. This will hopefully give you a taste of the authors writing style as I read from the intro and the first chapter. Please listen and enjoy the story just as I have enjoyed reading it and bringing it to you. For any questions or comments or things you may want me to read please reach me at Storiestodriveby@gmail.com
