Another great book,
For all bookworms thirteen and over, well for bookworms who don't need each character explained to them each time there mentioned throughout the novel, I have a great book Du may like to try out if Du haven't already. 'The Way of Shadows' Von Brent Weeks, the first book in the Night Angel – Jäger der Finsternis Trilogy. It's an action packed story filled with assassins, romance, friendship and life when it's hard. It's a Fantasy book that challenges your imagination and keeps Du guessing. I have heard multiple phrases for it and Liebe it myself. Another book of mine that I didn't want to put down.
If your searching for a book to read try this one. Though I can't promise that Du won't be disappointed, because everyone has different tastes, I can promise that if Du don't give it a shot Du may regret it.
Yeah I know, it's not much of a book review but I'll leave Du with your wandering minds and the blurb.

[b]For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art. And he is the city's most accomplished artist, his talents required from alleyway to courtly boudoir.

When I look on Youtube oder even here, there are people that just want every one to hate the Twilight series and Edward most of all! THEY ARE FICTIONAL! And your all fighting like a bunch of babies! Its a book! Du dont have to like it and I am not telling Du to read it if Du haven't.
I agree, Liebe does not work like she explains it, and this book is pretty stereotypical but thats not the point!
Us kids and Teens know that Vampire and Werwölfe are NOT real but we have every right to like what we want to like!
I see that some people are waiting for someone like Ewdard to come and sweep them off their feet and I agree, they are just going to be disappointed. And I see that some of them do not want to listen no matter what, but Du cant go telling them not to like him! Thats like telling a toddler not to want a Prince Charming!
Du should listen to yourselves! Its like Du never read a book when Du were little and went "I want my boyfriend to be just like that."

The book is called seeker, and its a story that my characters have been dieing to tell the world and me, which i never usually listen to because its hard to pay attention when Du have senioritis! Any ways I just wanted to let Du all know before it hits stores, I was hopeing to get feed back from everyone and if your wondering what its about become a Fan and i'll become yours and I'll let Du read a few chapters. My Friends and editor are workin on a website that should be up Von the ending of summer. WHOOOOO!! It's a rush but I'm still feeling doubious about this whole thing. Giving my thoughts to Du all would mean I dont have anything to keep sacred but everyone insists that i should "SPREAD THE NEWWWWWWS" so there it goes.:)

Statement of Intent: If Du read to the end, you'll notice that I do not advocate against Lesen Twilight, just putting it into context for young readers. This was originally written for a Facebook audience of Friends until I decided to post it here as well. It was not intended to offend Twilight Fans oder readers, but to simply give a little perspective on why I believe Edward Cullen is a poor character to respect/admire. Should there be enough beliebt demand, I'm willing to write a similar Artikel about Bella Swan.

Personality Traits in Abusive Relationships [link, link]

Note: The ones in bold are ones that are displayed Von Edward Cullen in the book oder film. Thanks to Jody for the research.

1) Uncontrolled temper. "Sometimes I Have a problem with my temper, Bella." (Twilight, Edward, page 164).

Mmkay, this is a really powerful-but really long- quote and I really hope Du take just a few Minuten out of whatever you're doing and read it.

"I was telling Du about evil, now that I know what it is. It's what makes a man get drunk and press a red hot poker on his child's back. It's what makes men have to queue for hours at the dock gates for a chance of a job when there are only a dozen jobs for a hundred men, so they fight each other in order to get them, and the foreman laugh and egg them on. It's what takes an old couple who've got nothing left but each other and splits them up to go in the workhouse so they each die alone. It's ... what takes rent out of tenements and slums and refuses the responsibility of mending the drains, so that children have to wade knee-deep through filth to get into their houses....Don't interrupt. Don't open your mouth. Listen to me and learn.

Evil....it's what makes a family starve--the family I heard about the other day, five of them, father and mother and three children all dead, with nothing in their little room, nothing, because they'd pawned every spoon and every blanket and every chair, and there was no work, and...

I explained in my Zurück linkthe meaning of the this phrase, but here is a quick recap: advance readers' copies are sent pre-published Bücher Von publishers in hopes that a particularly enthusiastic recipient will personally promote the work to his oder her customers, and thus increase sales exponentially.

Titles mentioned in my first Artikel included:
- The Hunger Games Von Suzanne Collins
- Half-Assed Von Jeanette Fulda
- The Rhino with Glue-on Shoes Von Lucy Spelman
- Cheer! Von Kate Torgovnick

Here are Mehr Bücher that I have read in galley form (another phrase for advance reader copy) and hope that y'all will pick them up upon their publishing.

This is a common phrase/question that people employ when asking us booksellers for suggestions for their Friends and family. "Well, he/she loved so-and-so...what else is like that" In fact, that is very helpful when trying to recommend books, knowing other Bücher & authors that they like.

But sometimes one can get stuck in a rut and cannot come up with a wide selection of suggestions. Let's help each other find new Bücher based on Bücher we already enjoy. Adult, young adult, whatever Du like!

Here are some Specific Titles that might prompt some suggestions:


-If Du liked Harry Potter, you'll love...


-If Du liked Twilight, you'll love...


-IF Du liked Murder on the Orient Express, you'll love...


-If Du liked Little House on the Prairie, you'll love...

A note to book-cover publishers: before Du decide on a cover, go into a bookstore and head to the respective section. See the trend of tints and shades that color that genre. then pick a different color! It is astonishing that, even in this Tag and age, history Bücher about China and Russia are still primarily red, Bücher about Ireland are green, and "women's books"(i.e. Chick Lit and Self Help) are pastel pink, blue oder yellow. Honestly, even murder mystery books, when targeted towards female readers, take on rosa as opposed to the red and/or black of other mysteries.

The psychology of book covers seems not to have evolved past an assumed color code. And yet, as a bookseller, I wonder why a book publisher doesn't try to break the conformity so to make the book stand out. Got a new history book about China? Try bright yellow. It's still in the warm Farben but will pop! Irish books? Try a orange (tho' that might fall into a political realm of Catholic Green vs. Protestant Orange....so maybe a yellow would too work in this scenario).

FIRST part of the book series The children of the earth.

This novel of awesome beauty and power is a moving saga about people, relationships, and the boundaries of love.

Through Jean M. Auel’s magnificent storytelling we are taken back to the dawn of modern humans, and with a girl named Ayla we are swept up in the harsh and beautiful Ice Age world they shared with the ones who called themselves The Clan of the Cave Bear.

Besides the book there was a movie in the 80's starring Daryl Hanna (Kill bill).


Totally Amazing!! Every Woman Should read it!!

We all Liebe books. That's a given. But what about bookstores? What are your thoughts on them?

I'm just going to presume that Du Liebe bookstores, and even more, independent bookstores. But in this Tag and age when it is too easy to Suchen for and buy Bücher online *cough* amazonas, amazon *cough*, I want to remind all of the wonderfulness of independent bookstores. But I also want to remind Du that they are suffering. These historical and community treasures need your help!

And so I want to direct your attention to an upcoming PBS documentary called Paperback Dreams. Paperback Dreams is the story of two landmark independent bookstores and their struggle to survive. The film follows Andy Ross, owner of Cody’s Books, and Clark Kepler, owner of Kepler’s Books, over the course of two tumultuous years in the book business.

"In the last decade, competition from big chains and the internet has put booksellers in a vice. Half the independent bookstores in America closed in the 1990s. But in the 1960s, bookstores like Cody’s and Kepler’s redefined intellectual life, democratized literature, and helped launch a...

My name is Chloe Saunders and my life will never be the same again.

All I wanted was to make friends, meet boys, and keep on being ordinary. I don't even know what that means anymore. It all started on the Tag that I saw my first ghost—and the ghost saw me.

Now there are ghosts everywhere and they won't leave me alone. To oben, nach oben it all off, I somehow got myself locked up in Lyle House, a "special home" for troubled teens. Yet the Home isn't what it seems. Don't tell anyone, but I think there might be Mehr to my housemates than meets the eye. The Frage is, whose side are they on? It's up to me to figure out the dangerous secrets behind Lyle House . . . before its skeletons come back to haunt me.

Advance Readers' Copies -- one of the many benefits of working at a bookstore. For those who might not know what that phrase refers to though, it means I (and other booksellers) are invited, even encouraged, to read advance copies of Bücher before they are officially released to the public. In this world of thousands upon thousands of books, publishers often send out a free copy in hopes that a particularly enthusiastic recipient will personally promote the work to his oder her customers, and thus increase sales exponentally.

Here are a few Bücher that I have read in galley form (another phrase for advance reader copy) and hope y'all will pick them up, either at a bookstore oder library.


The Rhino with Glue-On Shoes: And Other Surprising True Stories of Zoo Vets and their Patients

"I still get nightmares," begins Johnny Truant, editor of House of Leaves ("House," Von the way, always colored in blue). He goes on to explain how he stumbled upon the fateful document that would consume him. How Zampanò, an old and eccentric shut-in had left his critique of the Navidson Record scribbled on loose-leaf papers, book covers, and the backs of envelopes and even stamps scattered across his room. Johnny diligently collected all of the papers and organized them into the comprehensive thesis it was meant to be. It is an elaborate and detailed explanation of a documentary that, Johnny discovers, doesn't exist. No matter where he looks, he cannot find the film. But regardless, and for no reason he can remember, he diligently edited this scholarly paper and his footnotes are scattered throughout the novel, sometimes pages long.

But of course, Johnny shares something in common with the Navidson Record in that he doesn't exist either. He is a character created Von Mark Z. Danielewski to tell the story of House of Leaves, which is really a story-within-a-story. One story deals with Johnny and Zampanò and how the text effects them, especially...

The Know-It-All: One Man's Humble Quest to Become the Smartest Person in the World Von A.J. Jacobs
Just for the heck of it, one Tag A.J. Jacobs decided to read the entire Encyclopedia Britannica, all thirty-two volumes. Surprisingly his details about his adventure is quite amusing and he does share some very interesting tidbits from the EB. oder as Jon Stewart says: "The Know-It-All is a hilarious book and quite impressive achievement. I've always said, why doesn't someone put out a less complete version of the encyclopedia? Well done, A.J."

Now, there are two types of memoirs in my mind: those about famous people, and those that aren't. Both have their pros and cons. Mehr people are likely to notice a famous memoir at the bookstore and buy it based on the celebrity's name -- but "common folk" memoirs don't have pre-conceptions, politics, and religious perspectives to overcome. oder you're like me, who likes whatever she reads as long as its good. Whatever Du like to read, here are a few memorable memoirs that I'd recommend Du read.

With memoirs written Von writers, Du rightfully expect that the memoir is as good of a read as their non/fiction tales. None of the following authors will let Du down! link's memoirs, which are teilt, split into childhood and adulthood, are as imaginatively funny and horrible gruesome as his fictional tales (did Du know that his nose was practically sliced off in an accident?).

In A Sunburned Country, A Walk in the Woods and I'm a Stranger Here Myself: Notes on Returning to America After 20 Years Away Von link
While I have only discovered Bill Bryson's works within the past year, I have whole-heartedly fallen in Liebe with his writings. Why? Because they are the freaking funniest things I have ever read. He delights in depicting the strange and the awkward, which usually turns out to be him. This "God Dad! [teenage eyes rolling in disdain, can't believing that they are related]" theme runs throughout his books, adding *pop* and *crackle* to his extremely informative self-travel journeys. A Walk in the Woods is about his hike along the US Appalachian Trail; In A Sunburned Country is about Bryson's travels across Australia; I'm a Stranger Here Myself: Notes on Returning to America After 20 Years Away is (as the Titel so prominently points out) about returning to the American lifestyle after twenty years of living in England. "Woods" and "Sunburned" are full-fledged Bücher about his trips; "Stranger" is a collection...

My Life in France Von Julia Child with Alex Prud'homme
Du must know Julia Child Von name if not Von reputation. The cook of all cooks. The woman who revolutionized American household kitchens; she entered the Home Von TV and left us groaning, having just gorged on prodigious French food. But that really isn't her, Julia Child declares, in her book. My Life in France is an amazing, humanizing potrait of Julia Child as we peek into her life before fame and (can Du belive it?) her life before she could cook (she claims that she was horrible in the küche before moving to France and attended cooking classes). The best thing about this book, besides its wonderful writing? The idea that Du can become a master when Du are older; that a skill doesn't have to be innate, it can be learnt.


A Chef's Life: In Suchen of the Perfect Meal Von Anthony Bourdain
Written Von "bad boy" chef Anthony Bourdain, A Cook's Tour: In Suchen of the Perfect Meal will provoke envy and jealousy when Du read about how he gets paid to travel the world (Barcelona, Vietnam, Russia, etc.), experience out-of-this-world meals and then...

Tantalize (Cynthia Leitich Smith) was an awsome book. I really enjoyed it. It had me guessing what was going to happen until the very end!

Here is a piece about the book:

Quincie Morris has never felt Mehr alone. Her hybrid werewolf first Liebe threatens to embark on a rite of passage that will separate them forever. And just as she and her uncle are about to unveil Austin's red-hot vampire-themed restaurant, a brutal murder leaves them scrambling for a chef. Can Quincie transform the new hire, Henry Johnson, into a culinary Dark Lord before opening night? Will he be able to to wow the crowd in fake fangs, a cheap cape, and red contact lenses? oder is there Mehr to his earnest fresh face than meets the eye?

As human and preternatural forces clash a deadly Liebe dreieck forms and the line between predator and prey begins to blur. Who's playing whom? And how long can Quincie play along before she loses everything?

I read this really good book the other Tag and I would like to recommend it to poeple. This is what is written on the inside cover about the book:

Rule 3: DONT STARE AT INVISIBLE FAERIES: Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in the mortal world. Aislinn fears their cruelty- especially if learn of her Sight- and wishes she were as blind to their presence as other teens.

Rule 2: DONT SPEAK TO INVISIBLE FAERIES: Now faeries are stalking her. One of them, Keenan, who is equal parts terrifying and alluring, is trying to talk to her, asking Fragen Aislinn is afraid to answer.

Rule 1: DONT EVER ATTRACT THEIR ATTENTION: But it's too late. Keenan is the Summer King, who has sought his Queen for nine centuries. Without her, summer itself will perish. He is determined that Aislinn will become the Summer Queen at any cost-- regardless of her plans.

Suddenly none of the rules that have kept Aislinn safe, sicher are working anymore, and everything is on the line: her freedom; her best friends, Seth; her life; everything.
