I recently had the opportunity to check out a fantastic service for young readers called PUT ME IN THE STORY. The concept is that parents can visit http://www.PutMeInTheStory.com and after navigating a very easy to use system, they can create a personalized story books for their children starring some of the coolest licensed characters that kids know and love.
To my 3 yr old son’s (and my own) happiness, the great folks over at PUT ME IN THE STORY allowed me to make him two of their STAR WARS books which have gone on to become a part of his daily life. The two stories, STAR WARS: THE FORCE INSIDE and STAR WARS REBELS: BATTLE PLANS FROM DARTH VADER are awesome books for young fans of the series and both are fun way for them to learn more about their favorite heroes and villains while also seeing how and where they would fit into the STAR WARS universe.
Though my 3yr old is still currently in the process of learning exactly how to read, it in no way stops his passion for enjoying story time and having fun with some of his favorite books. Thankfully having the added option of him being able to see himself and his name included on the same pages as many of his favorite STAR WARS characters made him absolutely crazy for both books and he is constantly asking me to re-read them both to him and help him take the quizzes that determine if he leans more the the lighted or the dark. Currently he is way to happy about being a Sith….His mother and I are working on that one.
I can’t say enough good things about the PUT ME IN THE STORY books as they are a fun personalized way to share the joy of reading with your children at any age. In a time when toy prices have skyrocketed and every video game comes with costly DLC add ons that can run a parent into spending hundreds of dollars it’s nice to see a truly unique gift be available for a decent price. Each book will run you $29.99 – $39.99 but that does include all of the customization. On top of that PUT ME IN THE STORY also provided me with a special promo code to share that can be used right now that will give you half off any of the personalized STAR WARS books.
If you have kids who are STAR WARS fans, this is a no brainer and an absolutely wonderful way to give your kids a special gift that goes way beyond the usually toys or games.

The awesome folks over at Kinja Deals let us know that this 48” 4K Samsung TV is down to $500 today at Best Buy, which is $100 cheaper than it was on Black Friday![Samsung 48-Inch LED 2160p Smart 4K Ultra HDTV
I won’t pretend I’m not one of those people that has to have the newest video consoles when they first release. Ever since I’ve been old enough to earn and spend my own money I was there lined up on day one ( preordering nowadays) ready to see what the newest generation of gaming would bring. Despite that fact though, one of the most exciting things that happens after these systems release is the inevitable competition and price drops they will see as companies fight for gamers allegiance and mostly for their (and their parents) money.
This upcoming Holiday season looks to be no different as we will see the Wii U from Nintendo enter it’s 4th year, while the Sony PS4 and the Microsoft Xbox One enter their 3rd. While many wait for the holidays to score a system at its best deal, Microsoft has come out of the gate swinging and have announced they will be offering the Xbox One for $399 with an upgraded 1TB Hard Drive and 3 games:
– Gears of War: Ultimate Edition
– Rare Replay
– Ori and the Blind Forest
Though $399 is still somewhat steep for some, the value you are receiving can’t be denied. If you haven’t taken the plunge on an Xbox One yet, now just might be the prefect time. The bundle should be available in stores and online retailers in October.
I haven’t played the game yet so I’m particularly excited about his deal. Amazon has DRAGON AGE INQUISITION, one of this years hottest titles for $39.99 right now. Get it before it’s gone!!! This is even cheaper than Black Friday or Cyber Monday!!!!
