Since 1887, Detroit’s Eastern Market, the largest open-air market of its kind in the United States, has been home to an amazing community of farmers, merchants, and food lovers. Specialty shops, bakeries, spice companies, meat and poultry markets, restaurants, jazz cafés, old-time saloons, produce firms, gourmet shops, and cold-storage warehouses cover Eastern Market’s three square miles.

In this third edition of Detroit’s Eastern Market, authors Lois Johnson and Margaret Thomas recount the history of the market with additional stories and personal accounts of families who have worked and shopped there for as many as four generations. The authors have updated store information and added new restaurants and businesses to their original listings, reflecting the changes and additions that have taken place in Eastern Market since the previous edition in 2005.

Getting Laid Book Excerpt:

Sustainable living boasts no boundaries. You don’t need massive amounts of acreage or even a fenced-in backyard. We may not be 100 percent sustainable in our lifestyle, but we can become more in-tune with our environment and conscientious of our actions. Like all aspects of life, it’s about balance, finding ways to live a greener, cleaner life within the parameters of your current lifestyle. Top blogger for country living, Rural Mom, shows us the (actually very easy) way to live a sustainable lifestyle without making ourselves crazy in the process. Why does even Jennifer Aniston raise chickens in the Hollywood Hills? Easy answer, it is extremely cool to raise your own hens, eat the organic eggs and lie back on feather beds from your own brood. And what about you? What initially drew you to the idea of raising chickens, organic gardening, and incorporating more sustainable living practices into your lifestyle? Are you interested in saving money, eating a more healthy diet, being on trend, going more "green,” or saving the planet one plant at a time? Whatever the reason, the good news is all of the above motivators are real, tangible end-results of sustainable living.

U TURN KiLLuR Book Excerpt:

Why is the moth attracted to the very glow that will kill it? A maniacal killer is preying upon a firefighter's family, stripping them from his life: one by one; piece by piece. It took every ounce of energy Lieutenant Gabe McLaughlin possessed in resisting the undertow of a mental breakdown as his best friend, Detective Jeff Spencer, told him the horrific news. And Jeff was fighting the same fight, against the same psychological beast, as he uttered the grisly details: Gabe's mother, Ira McLaughlin, had been butchered to death: Dissected... slowly. Apparently, the killer took pleasure in cutting off appendages- one section at a time- at each of the major joints in the extremities. A tourniquet had been applied preventing massive blood loss... the victim eventually succumbed to shock. As insult to injury, the killer had also etched a note into the victim’s torso: “will U-turn and look the other way, or watch while I kill?” -KiLLuR

The Lowcountry Romance Collection Book Excerpt:

Enjoy New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hauck’s Lowcountry Romance novels as an e-collection! Sweet Caroline Life hasn't always been so sweet for Caroline Sweeny. She's sacrificed her desires for others—unlike her mother who abandoned their family years ago. But when a friend challenges her to accept an exciting job adventure in Spain, Caroline says "yes" to a new destiny. But before she can pack her bags, Caroline suddenly finds herself the new owner of the run-down Frogmore Cafe—and forced to choose between her friends and her future. Then her first love, Mitch O'Neal, returns home and encourages her to seek God's desires for her future. With his help, she may just discover the true sweet life. Love Starts with Elle Elle loves her life in Beaufort, South Carolina—summer days on the sand bar, coastal bonfires, and dinners with friends, sharing a lifetime of memories. She’s found her stride professionally as the owner of a successful art gallery. Life is good. And she’s found love with handsome, confident Jeremiah Franklin. But Jeremiah has accepted a large pastorate in a different state, so Elle turns her life upside down to take “the call” with him. When Jeremiah has a change of heart, Elle is hurt—and her faith is shaken. New York lawyer and recent widower Heath McCord imagines the lowcountry cottage he’s rented for the summer is the balm his grieving heart needs. That and time to connect with his little girl. He’s unprepared to meet his beautiful landlord, Elle Garvy, or the love her friendship awakens. But God has new blessings in store for the two grieving hearts. Can Elle trust so soon after losing Jeremiah? Can Heath release the memory of his wife and love again? Could love be as simple as trusting enough to take the first step?

Enter Luke Redmond: handsome, creative, and jobless after having to declare bankruptcy of his Manhatten restaurant. When her producers ask him to co-host the show, Joy sees Luke as her way out. But Luke sees much more than just a co-host in Joy. Their relationship begins to simmer on and off set. Until Joy's secret is revealed and her reputation is ruined on national television by her rival, Wenda Devine. But could Devine's cruelty be a divine gift? Losing Luke—and her sister—forces Joy to consider where her worth really comes from. Could God be cooking up an even bigger adventure from the mess? And will Joy hang on long enough to find out?

Dot Bomb Book Excerpt:

For a heady nine months, until the spring of 2000, Britain had dot.com fever. Lastminute.com's youthful founders saw their fledgling company soar to a valuation of £750 million, and Martha Lane Fox became a media star. Clickmango.com raised £3 million in just days to sell helth products online. Old-style industrial giantswere edged out of the FTSE 100 by e-commerce newcomers employing handfuls of people and losing a fortune... And then, just as swiftly, the bubble burst. London's hi-tech stocks followed New York's Nasdaq downwards. Boo.com, the flashiest website of all, went through £100 million in mere months in its mission to see designer sports gear. Financial analysts talked about 'burn-rate', and even the most glamorous start-ups couldn't defy the oldest law of business. Why did it all go so horribly wrong? Now, Rory Cellan-Jones tells the full story of this brief, fabulous, often farcical epoch, from our own now-forgotten Net pioneers to the exclusive few who really did make untold riches - like the man who thought up Freeserve - and follows the destinies of the dot.coms all the way from the glitzy launch to the deserted offices after all the cash had been burned through. Dot.Bomb is the compulsive tale of a never-to-be-repeated time when it seemed anyone could become an instant millionaire - at the click of a mouse.

The Oxford Handbook of Music and Virtuality Book Excerpt:

Has the virtual invaded the realm of the real, or has the real expanded its definition to include what once was characterized as virtual? With the continual evolution of digital technology, this distinction grows increasingly hazy. But perhaps the distinction has become obsolete; perhaps it is time to pay attention to the intersections, mutations, and transmigrations of the virtual and the real. Certainly it is time to reinterpret the practice and study of music. The Oxford Handbook of Music and Virtuality, edited by Sheila Whiteley and Shara Rambarran, is the first book to offer a kaleidoscope of interdisciplinary perspectives from scholars around the globe on the way in which virtuality mediates the dissemination, acquisition, performance, creation, and reimagining of music. The Oxford Handbook of Music and Virtuality addresses eight themes that often overlap and interact with one another. Questions of the role of the audience, artistic agency, individual and communal identity, subjectivity, and spatiality repeatedly arise. Authors specifically explore phenomena including holographic musicians and virtual bands, and the benefits and detriments surrounding the free circulation of music on the internet. In addition, the book investigates the way in which fans and musicians negotiate gender identities as well as the dynamics of audience participation and community building in a virtual environment. The handbook rehistoricizes the virtual by tracing its progression from cartoons in the 1950s to current industry innovations and changes in practice. Well-grounded and wide-reaching, this is a book that students of any number of disciplines, from Music to Cultural Studies, have awaited.

God s Glory in Salvation through Judgment Book Excerpt:

In Exodus 34 Moses asks to see God’s glory, and God reveals himself as a God who is merciful and just. James Hamilton Jr. contends that from this passage comes a biblical theology that unites the meta-narrative of Scripture under one central theme: God’s glory in salvation through judgment. Hamilton begins in the Old Testament by showing that Israel was saved through God’s judgment on the Egyptians and the Caananites. God was glorified through both his judgment and mercy, accorded in salvation to Israel. The New Testament unfolds the ultimate display of God’s glory in justice and mercy, as it was God’s righteous judgment shown on the cross that brought us salvation. God’s glory in salvation through judgment will be shown at the end of time, when Christ returns to judge his enemies and save all who have called on his name. Hamilton moves through the Bible book by book, showing that there is one theological center to the whole Bible. The volume’s systematic method and scope make it a unique resource for pastors, professors, and students.

Bradt Liguria Book Excerpt:

The only in-depth guide to Liguria, a mountainous region of dizzy passes and breath-taking views where mountains plunge down into the sparkling blue waters of the Mediterranean. Liguria will leave you awestruck by its beauty. The narrow strip of coast includes the gems of the world famous Italian Riviera, the great port city of Genoa, the glitzy resort of Portofino and the charms of the Cinque Terre. Yet in the hinterland there are many beautiful villages and mountain walks that have yet to be discovered by tourists. The walks vary in difficulty so are accessible to all. Many of the walks and cycle routes featured in the book are through beautiful wilderness.Unlike other guides to the region, Liguria includes a detailed description of the mountains and their hilltop villages. With a strong regional identity all of its own, Liguria is almost a country within a country. The spectacular scenery, the mediaeval towns, quaint fishing ports and the wonderful food have attracted some of the world's most famous writers among them Byron, Mary and Percy Shelley, Henry James, Dickens, Maupassant, D H Lawrence, Virginia Woolf and Dylan Thomas. Tourists flock to the Cinque Terre and Portofino but many of the other resorts have few foreign visitors so Liguria has the best of both world's to offer the visitor the big names on the Mediterranean destination list and mountain villages and small fishing ports which are almost exclusively Italian.
