Have you ever wondered why a thrown flat rock never flies straight? Spent a long and sleepless night in a den of snorers? Did you ever blow up cuisine in the microwave and then try and hide it? Follow the author and his family and friends in their rollicking adventures as they sled down the dreaded Sleddin' Road, ride in a Volkswagen Rabbit that smokes more than a locomotive, and practice Premeditated Bear Situation Thinking while out in The Woods. Just try not to laugh as you read about the cutthroat cookie decorating contest from Christmas 2007 or as the author guinea pigs his younger brother in a game of spit wads. Enjoy these entertaining short stories as they keep you rolling with laughter and reminiscing about your own adventures and mishaps. Born in Idaho, raised on ice cream, and schooled in calamity and disaster, author James D. Beers writes the stories of his life from a unique and humorous perspective in A Knack for Embarrassment, his first collection of short stories.

Savannah has a secret…a secret that could cost her everything she’s been working for. Coming to Merveille and taking up a position as one of Queen Alyssa’s ladies in waiting hadn’t been part of Savannah Rousseau’s plan, but she wasn’t going to turn down the opportunity when it came her way. The daughter of an impoverished viscount, Savannah had nothing to lose and everything to gain by being included amongst the new queen’s entourage…as long as no one found out about her secret. Savannah loved her son. Archer was the sun and moon of her life, but being a single mother would mean instant disqualification from the ladies in waiting. So she hid him from the queen and her new friends…for two years. Now someone had stumbled upon her secret and Savannah would do anything to ensure that she didn’t become a royal embarrassment. Jed Fairchild came to Merveille to escape his own scandal and the last thing he wanted was to be embroiled in another. Finding out about the young boy and impoverished viscount that Savannah had stashed in the abandoned hunting cabins was a complication that he didn’t need. Being attracted to the hot-tempered lady in waiting was another. All Jed wanted was to live a simple life working with his horses and ignoring the rest of the world, but with Savannah in his life and the inquisitive Archer following him like his very own shadow, the quiet life was the last thing Jed had…and maybe it wasn’t really what he wanted after all.

Topping the New York Times list and already selling five million copies, The Love Dare has established itself as more than a book; it’s an unstoppable marriage movement. And like the husband in Fireproof (the film where The Love Dare originated), readers know this 40-day challenge to understand and practice unconditional love with their spouse need not end when the book does. With that in mind, The Love Dare Day by Day encourages and challenges couples toward new steps in faith and love with 365 marital encouragements, reminders, and action points worth repeating year after year. Unconditional love is eagerly promised at weddings, but rarely practiced in real life. As a result, romantic hopes are often replaced with disappointment in the home. But it doesn’t have to stay that way. Whether your marriage is hanging by a thread or healthy and strong, The Love Dare Day by Day is a journey you need to take. It’s time to learn the keys to finding true intimacy

A candid memoir of building an acting career—and a happy life—with cerebral palsy: “It’s a joy to read this book” (Ian McShane). Exposing real pain, unstoppable perseverance, and unquestionable faith in the human spirit, this autobiography offers a true glimpse beyond actress Geri Jewell’s public image as a one-dimensional hero. Born with cerebral palsy, Jewell made history when she became the first person with a disability cast in a recurring role on American television in The Facts of Life, and in the years that followed she experienced a string of other successes, including a performance at the White House and a role on HBO’s Deadwood. But along with such accomplishments, this personal story also depicts some of the less-than-rosy events that happened behind closed doors during her initial climb to fame—among them, her release from The Facts of Life; her manager’s embezzlement of the money she made on the show; and her struggle with chronic pain, despair, and a fear of revealing her true sexual identity. Told with grace and humor, this inspirational narrative presents an honest portrayal of a woman who refused to give up when others kept knocking her down.

Fathers' Wit collects some of the funniest observations ever made on the august institution of fatherhood. Every phase is up for comment--from conception to diaper-changing, family holidays to first dates, weddings to bankruptcy. Pearls of wit and wisdom are offered up by fathers who have been there, done that, and had the drool-stained T-shirt. But dads don't have all the say: the paternal view is carefully balanced by pithy commentary from the family members who put up with them. Fathers old and new will be royally entertained; and if the rest of the family can pry the book out of his hands, they'll gain valuable insights into workings of dear old dad.

"In an issue of Life, an American airline pilot suggested that any novelist who wanted to produce a best seller should write about air turbulence, the mysterious menace of the skies that has sent many a passenger-filled jet crashing to its doom. Best seller or no, Soviet novelist Daniil Granin's Into the Storm has sold almost a million copies in his own country. It has appeared in French in Oeuvres et Opinions and been translated into many other languages. Its vivid pages describe not only a daring scientific attempt to control thunderstorms - they also give us an insight into the turbulent lives of Soviet scientists themselves, their enthusiasms, their rivalries, their loves and hates. Granin, who was 46 at the time he wrote this novel in 1965, has written before about scientists (Argument Across Ocean and Those Who Seek). He knows what barriers and pitfalls are encountered in the search for truth and he writes in the conviction that the only way to overcome them is to be outspoken. This is a book that should be read by everyone who wishes to understand the younger Soviet generation."--Goodreads
