Book Excerpt :

One cold rainy day when my father was a little boy, he met an old alley cat on his street. The cat was very drippy and uncomfortable so my father said, "Wouldn't you like to come home with me?" This surprised the cat—she had never before met anyone who cared about old alley cats—but she said, "I'd be very much obliged if I could sit by a warm furnace, and perhaps have a saucer of milk."

Book Short Summary:

Journey to an underground world where adventure awaits and heroes are made in this middle grade novel from the bestselling, Pulitzer-nominated author of The Monk of Mokha and Her Right Foot. When Gran and his family move to Carousel, he has no idea that the town is built atop a secret. Little does he suspect, as he walks his sister to school or casually eats a banana, that mysterious forces lurk mere inches beneath his feet, tearing up the earth like mini-hurricanes and causing the town to slowly but surely sink. When Gran's friend, the difficult-to-impress Catalina Catalan, presses a silver handle into a hillside and opens a doorway to underground, he knows that she is extraordinary and brave, and that he will have no choice but to follow wherever she leads. With luck on their side, and some discarded hockey sticks for good measure, Gran and Catalina might just find a way to lift their town--and the known world--out of danger. In The Lifters, critically acclaimed author Dave Eggers establishes himself as a storyteller who can entertain and inspire readers of any age.

Eggers's story moves along briskly thanks to mounting suspense and bite-size chapters." --Booklist A Junior Library Guild selection

The adventures of Duane the polar bear and his arctic friends continue in this charming sequel to the modern-day classic The Very, Very Far North, which Booklist compared to Winnie the Pooh in a starred review. Past the place where icebergs shiver, you will find the Very, Very Far North, where Duane and his friends are sure to make you feel right at home. You might like to share a delicious Snow Delight with warmhearted Duane. While you’re slurping away, if C.C. suddenly asks you where you’ve come from, it’s not because she’s nosy; she is simply gathering scientific data. If Handsome, the musk ox, pays a visit, a quick hair combing is highly recommended. Should you notice a quiet caribou grazing nearby, well, that’s just Boo’s way of saying hello. And if a less-than-friendly visitor arrives to sneak, shove, and shake things up, Duane and the others might discover that life isn’t always as peaceful as mid-late-afternoon nap. Fortunately, they know that change is as much a part of life as picnics and Tuesdays and cozy stories shared among friends.

Book Short Summary:

Fathers Can Be Good Dads is a novel, which is based on true events. Even though dates, houses, names of people, countrysides, and sceneries have been changed, the family interactions are real. However, not all have been the actions of Ginia Marie Giselle Hinson, the heroine of the book. The majority, though, are. When the author was a little girl, she often sat around the family sitting-room table or stood outside the doors, listening as the grown-ups in her family were sharing with loud laughter the mischiefs they had gotten themselves into when they were young. Often, the author wondered how she could improve on these mischiefs just to get a bit more attention. A heartfelt thank you is expressed to all family members and friends the author had listened to. Everyone was an inspiration to her. Also a thank you is given to all those she had interacted with and to all those who got into trouble with her in moments of absolute exuberance where household rules were ignored. The novel is dedicated to every writer who has struggled through the ups and downs of putting together personal memoirs to preserve, in writing for children and their children’s children, an insight into a life that once existed before their own times.

Book Short Summary:

Dear Readers, My Fathers Fathers is a composite of historical and archaeological fact, personal oral and written histories. These are woven together with my remembrances and hypotheses to narrate the history of my ancestors as nothing else exists to explain me. That said, combining and establishing theories is the work I put my mind to for the past three years. So please dont contact me to correct my inaccuracies or blunders. I acknowledge them and have embraced them. The scientific, historical, and archaeological information is all true as far as I can comprehend it. There really have been millions of tribes, thousands of dynasties, mass migrations, and countless wars since the Neolithic period, far too many to cite or explore deeply. I could not have written this book or found many illustrations without using the entries in Wikipedia.org. They are, in my estimation, one of the greatest boons the computer has provided us. I know people say it is not always accurate and I found different versions of events on other websites. When compared, they often offered additional information or a different view of affairs, but for my purposes they hung together. I urge you to support Wikipedia if you use their site because they always seek to upgrade their information and for this they should be rewarded. A list of all the sources I consulted containing information relevant to this paper would be virtually endless, so I have listed some of the principal authors and titles. I am greatly indebted to them all. If you wish to start exploring your genetic history, it will lead you to many exciting places. I recommend you begin your search by consulting Shannon Bennetts article in Family Tree Magazine entitled DNA Demystified: Genetic Genealogy for First Timers, p. 42, December 2012. The magazine is published by F+W Media, Inc., Cincinnati, Ohio. My cat Sassy always helped me edit the information I wrote by watching the words appear on the computer screen or lying on my lap and pawing the pages as I tried to make sense of what I was trying to say. What would I have done without her? Keep reading and be well. Sincerely, Barbara Grivna

Book Short Summary:

This is a fast paced DND book. About the mages of the world . A mage is anyone who uses magic . Wizards , witches , alchemist , sorcerers , and sorceress are all examples of a mage . The science of magic is based on the philosophy that all technology and science is magic until it is understood . Quantum physics is an attempt to understand a deeper magic . Rubbing two sticks together to start a fire was magic in the beginning . But to use magic you don’t have to understand all the underling physics . You simply have to believe and know the process . Someday maybe science will understand astral projection , telepathy , telekinesis and other mental magical feats . If so it will probably be quantum physics that makes the break through . You don’t have to look far in the modern world to see magic . Look at your cell phone , your computer , your high definition television or even a simple light bulb . All these things are in a sense the science of magic . Where magic has become common place . You see and use it everyday . There was a time only wizards had such power available to them .

Book Short Summary:

This volume, containing the equivalent of three volumes of the Edinburgh series of the Ante-Nicene Fathers, will be found a library somewhat complete in itself. The Apostolic Fathers and those associated with them in the third generation, are here placed together in a handbook, which, with the inestimable Scriptures, supplies a succinct autobiography of the Spouse of Christ for the first two centuries. No Christian scholar has ever before possessed, in faithful versions of such compact form, a supplement so essential to the right understanding of the New Testament itself. It is a volume indispensable to all scholars, and to every library, private or public, in this country. The American Editor has performed the humble task of ushering these works into American use, with scanty contributions of his own. Such was the understanding with the public: they were to be presented with the Edinburgh series, free from appreciable colour or alloy. His duty was to give historic arrangement to the confused mass of the original series; to supply, in continuity, such brief introductory notices as might slightly popularize what was apparently meant for scholars only, in the introductions of the translators; to supply a few deficiencies by short notes and references; to add such references to Scripture, or to authors of general repute, as might lend additional aid to students, without clogging or overlaying the comments of the translators; and to note such corruptions or distortions of Patristic testimony as have been circulated, in the spirit of the forged Decretals, by those who carry on the old imposture by means essentially equivalent. Too long have they been allowed to speak to the popular mind as if the Fathers were their own; while, to every candid reader, it must be evident that, alike, the testimony, the arguments, and the silence of the Ante-Nicene writers confound all attempts to identify the ecclesiastical establishment of "the Holy Roman Empire," with "the Holy Catholic Church" of the ancient creeds. In performing this task, under the pressure of a virtual obligation to issue the first volume in the first month of the new year, the Editor has relied upon the kindly aid of an able friend, as typographical corrector of the Edinburgh sheets. It is only necessary to add, that he has bracketed all his own notes, so as to assume the responsibility for them; but his introductions are so separated from those of the translators, that, after the first instance, he has not thought it requisite to suffix his initials to these brief contributions. He regrets that the most important volume of the series is necessarily the experimental one, and comes out under disadvantages from which it may be expected that succeeding issues will be free. May the Lord God of our Fathers bless the undertaking to all my fellow-Christians, and make good to them the promise which was once felicitously chosen for the motto of a similar series of publications: "Yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers."

Book Short Summary:

Damianos Drákon is insanely hot, ridiculously huge, and incredibly evil. He’s the trillionaire king of dragons. And also my family’s mortal enemy. So what did I do the first time I meet him? Grabbed his junk. Look, I had to distract him somehow so that my twin sister could escape with the dragon he was keeping prisoner. It was purely hero stuff. So when he kidnaps me, I figure that it’s all about revenge. But I figured wrong. His plans for me aren’t nearly as cold as murder. No, they’re way, way hotter. Listen… My grandfather is a time-traveling Viking werewolf. My fathers are two time-traveling Viking werewolves. My sister met her dragon husband in the Ice Age! My family wrote the book(s) on dramatic love stories, but I have to warn you, my romance is more epic than all of theirs combined. You ready for this? I can tell you right now you totally aren’t. But go ahead and read anyway. Just remember you were warned.

Book Short Summary:

Ideal fathers, cruel fathers, puffed-up-with-pride fathers, horribly and humanly flawed fathers: this wonderful anthology contains a whole range of experience from the amazed joy of new fatherhood, to the pains of bereavement, from the comic and eccentric Papa to the sinister and silent Dad. Louise Guinness has collected irresistible extracts spanning nearly three thousand years, from Homer and the Bible to present day, from Chaucer to Beatrix Potter, Rabelais to Seamus Heaney.
