Maryrose Wood - The Unseen Guest

Despite their wolfish upbringing, the children have taken up bird-watching, with no unfortunate consequences--yet.

But hers is not the only family mystery to solve. When Lord Fredrick's long-absent mother arrives with the noted explorer Admiral Faucet, gruesome secrets tumble out of the Ashton family tree. And when the admiral's prized racing ostrich gets loose in the forest, it will take all the Incorrigibles' skills to find her. The hunt for the runaway ostrich is on. But Penelope is worried. Once back in the wild, will the children forget about books and poetry and go back to their howling, wolfish ways? What if they never want to come back to Ashton Place at all?

Julie Morgenstern - Organizing from the Inside Out
Veteran professional organizer Julie Morgenstern offers a fresh, insightful approach to the organizing process- by sharing the secrets and techniques she has used for nearly a decade with clients nationwide. Organizing from the inside out - designing a system based on your life goals, natural habits and psychological needs - ensures, once and for all, a system that won't break down. In Parts One and Two, Morgenstern demystifies the process of getting organized by showing you just what has been holding you back. She explains the basic steps - analyze, strategize, attack - to use on every organizing project, no matter how big or small, and shares tricks of the trade for avoiding common pitfalls. In Parts Three and Four, Morgenstern shows how to apply these steps to every area of your life and work including offices, home offices, mobile offices, bathrooms, closets, kitchens, kid's rooms, garages, schedules and technology. Other books on the subject tend to focus solely on tips and gloss over the psychological issues and practical challenges we all face in our efforts to conquer chaos. Organizing from the Inside Out goes straight to the heart of the matter and teaches you how to work with your personality rather than against it to achieve the results you are looking for. Morgenstern believes organizing is a completely learnable skill, and offers the reader a total reeducation of the organizing process. Designed as a permanent reference book for the 21st century, you can read and re-read its pages to master the fundamental principals of organizing anything in a practical, effective and long lasting way. Organizing from the Inside Out will be a welcome handbook for corporate executives, professionals, entrepreneurs, working parents, secretaries, teachers, students, senior citizens, homeowners, and apartment dwellers - anyone facing an overwhelming amount of clutter, who doesn't know where to start.
Michael R. Gordon - Bernard E. Trainor - Cobra II - The Inside Story of the Invasion and Occupation of Iraq
There have been many reports about the Iraq war and the vicissitudes of the American occupation, yet none heretofore has been informed by the inside story. Rendered fairly and documented impressively, it offers a galvanizing account of the strategy, the personalities, the actual battles, the diplomacy, the adversary, and the occupation. Cobra II is stunning work of investigative journalism by Michael Gordon, the chief military correspondent of The New York Times, winner of the George Polk Award for Investigative Reporting in 1989 and the one and only correspondent embedded in Allied land command; and General Bernard E. Trainor, former military correspondent for The New York Times and current military analyst for NBC. Brimming with new and compromising disclosures, the book promises to be a singularly authoritative and comprehensive account of the planning and prosecution of the Iraq war. Michael Gordon had unparalleled access to top military brass and was in the war room with Tommy Franks, Donald Rumsfeld and the field generals who were key in the formulation and execution of the war strategy. He has interviewed an extraordinary range of officials, including Franks himself, Condoleezza Rice, Steve Hadley, Paul Wolfowitz, Marc Grossman (the third ranking State Department official), Jerry Bremer, General Meyers (Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff), as well as virtually every general, regimental commander and brigade commander. He has had access to classified military and diplomatic documents, military archives and internal after-action reports and oral histories not meant for public consumption.

EMILY MICHAELS ~ Have you ever felt like you didn’t belong? Like you never fit in, or you weren’t good enough? This is how I have felt for as long as I can remember. I see the world differently than everyone else, I feel everything differently and I reflect on life differently. And being different in my world is not a good thing. I live in a place that’s divided between the rich and the poor, the beautiful and the unbeautiful, the prestigious and the mediocre. I have always belonged in the first category, because my father was the Governor of Georgia. Growing up around people I could never relate with, my life had always been lonely, that was until my senior year when I met the one boy who would change my life forever. A boy who my parents would never approve of because he didn’t come from money or the same social class. He rode a motorcycle, had tattoos and was considered to be from the wrong side of the tracks. Yet he was still envied by many. Ryder Jameson was someone who every guy feared, and one who every girl wanted to be touched by. He didn’t do attachments, or have friends… until me. And for the first time in my life I finally felt like I belonged. When I was with him, my different didn’t feel wrong or ugly. He made me feel beautiful- insightfully beautiful. Then one day my world came crashing down on me, and it would be six years before I'd once again see the boy I fell in love with. RYDER JAMESON ~ After working my ass off I am given the opportunity of a lifetime, and if I pull it off I will be the youngest FBI agent to run one of the biggest undercover operations in history. Only the case that gets thrown in front of me leads me back to the one place I swore I would never return to, and to the only girl who’s ever mattered to me. Except Emily Michaels is not the same girl I left behind. She still looks the same, she’s still beautiful inside and out, but there’s one thing that’s very different about her, one very big thing, and it’s something I didn’t think was possible. Ryder and I come from a world where politics separates us and wealth defines us, but even after all this time we will not let it divide us. Here is our story.
Bruce Thomas - Bruce Lee
This is the only independent biography of Bruce Lee, and it is complete in terms of both the martial arts and the movies. Review "Bruce Lee was a star in America but an icon in much of the rest of the world. Since the U.S. is the big enchilada in pop culture, Lee worked for years to become recognized here and to spread appreciation of the martial arts in a society that had a jaundiced, even bigoted view of those ancient disciplines. Thomas makes it abundantly clear that Lee was both an astonishing athlete and an engaging actor. Devotees of his movies and two TV shows, The Green Hornet and Longstreet, know that, of course. Thomas notes that Lee, as the Green Hornet's sidekick, Kato, gave American audiences their first look at authentic martial arts. The current popularity of martial arts in the U.S. flows from Lee's own, and the martial arts movies that continue to appear in the wake of Lee's Dragon series constitute an identifiable movie subgenre. A major force in popular entertainment, Lee deserves the place in the pop culture library that Thomas ably helps him fill." - Booklist
Heruka - The Life of Milarepa
The Life of Milarepa is the most beloved story of the Tibetan people and one of the greatest source books for the contemplative life in all world literature. This biography, a true folk tale from a culture now in crisis, can be read on several levels: a personal and moving introduction to Tibetan Buddhism, it is also a profoundly detailed guidebook in the search for consciousness. It presents the quest for spiritual perfection, tracing the path of a great sinner who became a great saint. But it is also a powerful and graphic folk tale, full of magic, disaster, feuds, deceptions, and humor. This definitive translation, originally published in 1977, was the first to appear in any Western language in half a century and renders this classic of spiritual literature into a simple modern English that reflects the direct power of the original.
