Are We Having Fun Yet Book Excerpt:

Based on 20 years of successful workshops, the founder of Mothers Matter shares a wealth of advice and practical tips for both new and experienced parents on how to raise happy children -- and have fun doing it. Twenty years ago, Kay Willis, a New Jersey mother of 10 children, realized that mothers needed a forum to learn from each other and increase their skills, confidence, and enjoyment as parents. As the founder of Mothers Matter, an educational organization which helps thousands of parents across the country, Willis offers workshops for new and single parents, working mothers and fathers, and even grandparents. Believing that parenting is a profession, and that no other profession makes as important a contribution to society, Willis has distilled the shared wisdom of her fellow parents into this concise and wonderful guide.

Are We Having Fun Yet Book Excerpt:

There is no manual for being a good mother. Many books have been written about how to react to different situations, and what to look for when problems arise, but the best teacher is to have kids. The kids show us what to do, or more importantly, what not to do. And just when you think you have a handle on the whole thing, the kids go and change the rules completely. This book is a collection of funny and heartwarming anecdotes about a mother and her two young sons. The characters may be (mostly) fictional, but the adventures are not!

Are We Having Fun Yet Book Excerpt:

'Utterly, utterly perfect and brilliant - I think it is, simply, a new classic, and the book every woman will be able to trust to make her happy when she picks it up' - Caitlin Moran 'Utterly wonderful ... full of love. Enormously uplifting, funny and witty and wry' - Marian Keyes 'A glorious, outrageously funny retelling of E.M. Delafield's Diary of a Provincial Lady. At once, a celebration of the joy of family life and a cry of anguish at the utter hell of it. Laugh out loud, compulsive reading' - Nina Stibbe Meet Liz: all she wants is some peace and quiet so she can read a book with her cat Henry, love of her life, by her side. But trampling all over this dream is a group of wild things also known as Liz's family. Namely: Richard - a man, a husband, no serious rival to Henry. Thomas - their sensitive seven year old son, for whom life is a bed of pain already. Evie - five year old acrobat, gangster, anarchist, daughter. And as if her family's demands (Where are the door keys? Are we made of plastic? Do 'ghost poos' really count?) weren't enough, Liz must also contend with the madness of parents, friends, bosses, and at least one hovering nemesis. Are We Having Fun Yet? is a year with one woman as she faces all the storms of modern life (babysitters, death, threadworms) on her epic quest for that holy grail: a moment to herself.

Are We Having Fun Yet Book Excerpt:

Clutching an armload of baseball mitts and billiard balls, I ran after my brood trying to pick up items that were blocking the aisles. I added a pair of tennis shoes, several baseball caps, the camping silverware and a handful of sweat bands to my cache. Meanwhile, the wiffle balls bounced off my legs, and I shouted formy "wrecking crew" to stop. Finally, they ran into a display and I pounced on them. Unfortunately, I dropped most of my huge armload but I had them. Suddenly, I became aware of the spectacle we had created. All around, there were people quietly staring at us. Everywhere I looked, I saw devastation created by my children. Had the store sustained a 7.5 earthquake, the damage could not have been worse. I honestly didn't know what to do. Author Joyce Jennison firmly believes that if enough time passes, one will be able to see humor in what once was a very tryingexperience. On that premise she has written a very amusing, satirical account of her family's life adventures. Jump on board and enjoy the wild ride through some of the Jennison's most unbelievable and hysterical happenings.

Our Island in the Sun Book Excerpt:

I never intended to "really" read this book. My goal before reviewing it was to "peruse" it and stop now and then when a particular passage caught my attention. Just read enough to do an honest review. But I sat down early in the morning and began actually reading the book. Just to get started. Page one lead to page two and to page three and page 4 etc. and soon I was into the book. I stopped to eat breakfast but I couldn't wait to get back to the story. Garry says the book is not a "cruising handbook". Maybe not but it's certainly a "cruiser primer" in my opinion. I can't think of much he leaves out in terms of the life of a cruiser. Maybe Pirates. But that is it. I like the way Carol writes her own accounts of the adventure. It's good to see two perspectives of the same situation and experience. The psychological aspect of long-distance cruising can be as interesting as the pragmatic side of keeping a boat going. Carol and Garry both give you great insights into this very personal side of the adventure. If I were to criticize the book I'd say from a designers perspective, I would have liked to see some more descriptions of the other boats Garry and Carol encountered on their voyage. That's just me. When I finished the book I remembered saying, "Long range cruising is all about fixing your boat in exotic places". Bob Perry

Word On The Street Book Excerpt:

Though there is a contingent of linguists who fight the fact, our language is always changing -- not only through slang, but sound, syntax, and words' meanings as well. Debunking the myth of "pure" standard English, tackling controversial positions, and eschewing politically correct arguments, linguist John McWhorter considers speech patterns and regional accents to demonstrate just how the changes do occur. Wielding reason and humor, McWhorter ultimately explains why we must embrace these changes, ultimately revealing our American English in all its variety, expressiveness, and power.

The Last Days of Shea Book Excerpt:

Written in a personal, moving, and humorous style, The Last Days of Shea chronicles the New York Mets from October 2006, when the team lost the National League Championship Series, to October 2008, when the team began to dismantle its antiquated, inadequate, and dearly loved Shea Stadium. The book is about following a baseball team with one's heart, mind, and soul. It represents the experience of being in a crowd at a ballpark, following a pennant race, enduring an off season, experiencing streaks, slumps, triumph and heartbreak. All of this is represented against the imminent destruction of a stadium "that is not likely to be represented as well in the perfect and profitable little park that will replace it."

According To My Father Book Excerpt:

In this novel, the narrator greets nay, welcomes readers into a world of the absurd, with boundaries of neither space nor time. Barely do we arrive at the Crusades’ bloodbath when a zeppelin circles about Renaissance Florence’s Arno, and before we can catch our breath, Cologne is reduced to rubble through Allied bombardment. Next we find ourselves in fin-de-siecle Vienna sharing an espresso with Freud. According to the narrator’s father, appropriately unnamed and unnameable, historical time is a flow of events endlessly repeating themselves, where what is true one moment is false the next, what once beautiful now hideous. Everything is both earthly serious and airy as life itself. Put another way, true survival consists in this: trust nothing and no one, yet love everything and everyone. This the narrator’s father achieves to perfection. He is the perpetual student unbound by place and time, who learned the art of love from Sappho, war from Napoleon (“call me Boni”) and climbed the steep scaffold with a refreshing drink for the hard working Michelangelo. In his many incarnations (learned from Merlin no doubt), father’s ongoing struggle is on behalf of the downtrodden and against the obscenely powerful. The history of the world itself is too short to fully contain such an individual, just as it was too short to enfold Cervantes’ great Don.

Conscience of a Dead Killer Book Excerpt:

Is there life after death? According to religious beliefs, there is. Heaven waits for believers, and Hell waits for those who are evil. For the evil convicted killer, BILLY BOYLE, there is a fate worse than Hell. After his execution he meets his Spirit Guide. He discovers his divine punishment. He will be going back in time, and going back in time to witness the life of his first victim, his late wife Susan. As an unseen ghost from the future, Billy is now forced to watch her grow into the beautiful woman, who he will marry and ultimately murder on their honeymoon for money. Also, Billy’s Ghost gets one little bonus: He now has a conscience. After witnessing his evil act, Billy’s Spirit is once again hurled back in time in order to watch the life and death of yet another victim. This is where things change for Billy. Billy’s Ghost discovers that for some strange reason, a famous retired FBI agent can see and hear him where no one else can. Together, they earnestly work to stop the living killer from murdering his four victims. Unfortunately, stopping the evil and ruthless Billy Boyle, is no easy task.

My Thoughts Exactly Book Excerpt:

Why are parking lots the most dangerous places in America? What are the hardest packages to open? Do inanimate objects have a life? Can they talk to one another? What is the real purpose of those high walls along the interstate? These, and other daunting questions of our time will be answered definitively in this lively and witty collection of essays and stories. Along the way, we will travel alongside a band of latter-day civil disobedients as they strive for a strange justice, and empathize with a struggling artist as he seeks an unconventional pathway toward recognition. In another tale, a chance encounter on a snowy night in west Texas reveals what really went down the day the music died. The author also revisits simpler times, recalling a quiz show jackpot gone awry, a cherished world series played long ago, and the remembrance of cars past. More fanciful diversions include the writers presentation on his own Presidential campaign, a piece on why everyone is badly attired in a land of plenty, and the ongoing challenges everyman faces today in coping with advancing technology. A true Renaissance-Man writer, Typermass visits a wide array of subject matter in a book that captures one mans take on popular culture.

eHow Construct a Square Foot Garden Book Excerpt:

Adapted from the U.S. bestseller All New Square Foot Gardening, this new edition applies the proven principles of square foot gardening to the European growing environment. The entire book has been converted to the metric system, but the adaptations go much deeper than that. We consulted the finest gardening editors in Great Britain for the conversion of author Mel Bartholomew’s classic guide, and they made sure that all of the inputs and outputs described in this book are sensible for the European market. Plant selections have been adjusted for British and Northern European climates and growing seasons; even the language has been Anglicized to communicate in a precise and natural way with European gardeners. This is the world’s most fail-safe method for growing produce at home, and now it is finally available for consumption outside of the United States. Vegetables, cutting flowers, and landscape plants can all be grown with amazing results (and virtually no weeding) using the square metre approach. There is a reason that the U.S. editions of this book have sold more than two million copies: metre or foot, the method works.
