Mommyblogs and the Changing Face of Motherhood Book Excerpt:

Mothers have consistently relied upon one another for guidance and support as they navigate the difficult world of parenting. For many women, the increasingly established online community of “mommyblogs” now provides a source of camaraderie and support that acknowledges both the work of mothering and the implications of its undertaking. Beyond their capacity to entertain, how have mommyblogs shifted our understanding of twenty-first-century motherhood? In examining the content of hundreds of mommyblogs, May Friedman considers the ways that online maternal life writing provides a front row seat to some of the most raw, offbeat, and engaging portraits of motherhood imaginable. Focusing on the composition of the “mamasphere” and on mommyblogs’ emphasis on connection, Friedman reveals the changing face of contemporary motherhood – one less concerned with the proscriptions of what good mothers should do, and more invested in what diverse mothers have to say.

A big favor. Mistaken identity. One interesting Thanksgiving dinner. ATHENA If there’s anything I hate more than Warren family holidays, I can’t think of it. The last two years have been real doozies too. My brothers’ choices have made my life a living hell. Because now all the Warren focus has fallen on me. What they want from me. What they expect from me now that I’m about to graduate. I couldn’t care less, though. My only goal going home this Thanksgiving is to ensure everyone around that table understands exactly how I feel about their expectations. And I have just the plan to do it. All I need is a fake boyfriend who can really get under their skin. ISAIAH All I wanted was a little time away from stresses of work. The cross-country motorcycle trip was just what I needed. Pulling into sunny California and climbing off my bike feels like a fresh start. But when a beautiful woman mistakes me for someone else and says she needs my help… I can’t resist, despite knowing it means going back to the East Coast. And that I’ll be walking into the Warren lion den for Thanksgiving dinner. No one knows who I am, and I plan to keep it that way. Until I realize the fake relationship I have with Athena is turning into something very real. When an entire relationship is based on lies, will the truth destroy new romance or will love be discovered in time to ring in the holidays?

Leslie Langtry creates characters that are so relatable and yet so humorous that you'll want to re-visit them again and again." - Gemma Halliday, New York Times bestselling author Laura Smith is the mom of two adorable children, the wife of a successful businessman…and the unappreciated shadow of the woman she once was. Somehow, her family never seems to notice that the laundry gets done, the house is picked up, dinner mysteriously appears on the table, and then cleans up after itself. Instead of being her children's idol and her husband's lover, she's become a funny little footnote in her own life. That is until she takes her children on vacation to Disneyworld in sunny Florida, where she just happens to end up in a hotel room right next to her college flame, Alan James. Old passions ignite and new excitement sparks as Laura and Alan bring new meaning to "The Most Magical Place on Earth." But when Laura and Alan's spouses unexpectedly show up in Florida, a comedy of errors ensues, and only one thing is for certain: Laura's life will never be the same again.

From Nazi-occupied Norway to the lush richness of Southern California, author Karin Johanne Boer takes us on her childhood journey through the poignant drama of being caught between two different cultures-neither of which she is allowed to embrace-and life without a mother.

Karin's sister, Kirsten, steadfastly stands in the gap between Karin and the family's splintered past. But she is no match for the seductively beautiful German baroness who leads Karin, now a teen, into occult explorations. Karin, obsessed with the fascinating spiritual forces on the "other side," becomes addicted. Now a young adult, darkness and confusion of a deep and cloying kind close in over her mind and heart. Karin is presented with a way out-but it is one she is determined not to take. Follow Karin's amazing journey toward redemption as she seeks to answer the two questions that continually haunt her: "Who am I, and where do I belong?"

The Encyclopedia of Hollywood Film Actors Book Excerpt:

For decades, Screen World has been the film professional's, as well as the film buff's, favorite and indispensable annual screen resource, full of all the necessary statistics and facts. Now Screen World editor Barry Monush has compiled another comprehensive work for every film lover's library. In the first of two volumes, this book chronicles the careers of every significant film actor, from the earliest silent screen stars – Chaplin, Pickford, Fairbanks – to the mid-1960s, when the old studio and star systems came crashing down. Each listing includes: a brief biography, photos from the famed Screen World archives, with many rare shots; vital statistics; a comprehensive filmography; and an informed, entertaining assessment of each actor's contributions – good or bad! In addition to every major player, Monush includes the legions of unjustly neglected troupers of yesteryear. The result is a rarity: an invaluable reference tool that's as much fun to read as a scandal sheet. It pulsates with all the scandal, glamour, oddity and glory that was the lifeblood of its subjects. Contains over 1 000 photos!
