Book Summary:

I'm a Witch and Witches burn. Lily is back in her own universe, and she's ready to relax with Rowan.

You think I'm a monster, but my choices, as ruthless as they seem, are justified. Unfortunately, Lillian, ruthless ruler of the 13 Cities, is not willing to let Lily go that easily. If she can't persuade Lily to return to her world, she'll have to find a way to make her come back. Picking up right where Trial By Fire left off, Firewalker is another sexy, fast-paced, heartbreaking thrill ride from internationally bestselling author Josephine Angelini!

Book Summary:

From the coauthor of the Trollhunters series, a sci-fi mystery comic about a teenage reporter tracking a conspiracy and trying to clear her father’s name . . . Meet fourteen-year-old Sophie Cooper—redheaded Cuban-American, high school freshman, and daughter of a loving father currently under house arrest for embezzlement and money laundering. While her mother struggles to support the family, and her bratty younger brother, Kit, sits around tinkering with his “inventions,” Sophie has only one goal: clearing her father’s name. When an internship opens up at the local news station, Sophie seizes the chance to do a little investigating of her own. Unfortunately, WMIA 7 isn’t exactly CNN. In between logging Betacam tapes and fetching coffee for the station’s washed-up reporting team, Sophie sifts through the “broken stories”: crank-calls and dead-end tips reporting everything from UFOs to alligator-men. However, one name keeps popping up: Matheson Savings and Trust, the bank that accused Sophie’s father of money laundering. Sounds like a conspiracy to this cub reporter! Determined to follow her lead, Sophie sets out to investigate the weirdness, uncover a conspiracy, and clear her family’s name . . .

A Goodreads "YA Best Book of the Month" An Amazon "Best Book of the Month: Science Fiction & Fantasy" Zera is a Heartless—the immortal, unaging soldier of a witch. Bound to the witch Nightsinger, Zera longs for freedom from the woods they hide in. With her heart in a jar under Nightsinger's control, she serves the witch unquestioningly. Until Nightsinger asks Zera for a prince's heart in exchange for her own, with one addendum: if she's discovered infiltrating the court, Nightsinger will destroy Zera's heart rather than see her tortured by the witch-hating nobles. Crown Prince Lucien d'Malvane hates the royal court as much as it loves him—every tutor too afraid to correct him and every girl jockeying for a place at his darkly handsome side. No one can challenge him—until the arrival of Lady Zera. She's inelegant, smart-mouthed, carefree, and out for his blood. The prince's honor has him quickly aiming for her throat. So begins a game of cat and mouse between a girl with nothing to lose and a boy who has it all. Winner takes the loser's heart. Literally. The Bring Me Their Hearts series is best enjoyed in order.

She dreams of a fresh start at college, but when family tragedy strikes, Daunis puts her future on hold to look after her fragile mother. The only bright spot is meeting Jamie, the charming new recruit on her brother Levi’s hockey team. Yet even as Daunis falls for Jamie, she senses the dashing hockey star is hiding something. Everything comes to light when Daunis witnesses a shocking murder, thrusting her into an FBI investigation of a lethal new drug.

Book Summary:

He is the love of all her lives... Thomas Finn, troublemaker, gunslinger, guardian angel...loner. More than a hundred and fifty years ago, he was shot in the back then brought back to life just in time to watch a demon masquerading as his best friend kill the love of his life. Now, as a Grimm, he satisfies his need for vengeance hunting down demons like the ones that took Rebecca from him. His mission: kill as many as he can, then, when the time comes, go down in a blaze of glory. But with each kill, he comes closer to a line no angel should cross. Her name was Rebecca. Then it was Tilly. Then Ada. Now, Kalypso. She’s lived so many lives, she can’t even remember when or why it started. All she knows is, she’s always searching for a man with golden eyes that make her burn. And when she finds him—as she always does—she knows that spark of joy means she’s only seconds away from death...again. This time will be no different...unless something breaks the cycle once and for all. Warning: Contains the Groundhog Day of star-crossed lovers, a pissed-off guardian angel, a demon-hunter with an axe to grind, and the battle to end all battles. Be warned...there’s pain ahead in this book. Oh, and that HEA finally happens. For these two, anyway.

Book Summary:

The post-apartheid era in South Africa has, in the space of nearly two decades, experienced a massive memory boom, manifest in a plethora of new memorials and museums and in the renaming of streets, buildings, cities and more across the country. This memorialisation is intricately linked to questions of power, liberation and public history in the making and remaking of the South African nation. Ali Khangela Hlongwane and Sifiso Mxolisi Ndlovu analyse an array of these liberation heritage sites, including the Hector Pieterson Memorial and Museum, the June 16, 1976 Interpretation Centre, the Apartheid Museum and the Mandela House Museum, foregrounding the work of migrant workers, architects, visual artists and activists in the practice of memorialisation. As they argue, memorialisation has been integral to the process of state and nation formation from the pre-colonial era through the present day.

Book Summary:

'Open your mind to extreme possibilities' Scully's desire to be recognised as 'a medical doctor', ooze, mouthfuls of difficult dialogue and the tendency for characters not to make it through the pre-titles sequence were just a few of the tragically underexamined elements of THE X-FILES phenomenon - until the first edition of this book. Now the authors take their study of televisions weirdest show through to the end of series five, and THE X-FILES movie. X-TREME POSSIBILITIES presents a unique analysis of the programme that transformed US television. While sometimes witty and light-hearted, this volume is also a serious study of the elements that made the show such a success. As well as a detailed episode guide of the first five seasons, the book pieces together the nature of the series' Conspiracy - and attempts to discover just what the truth is. Never before has THE X-FILES been put under such focused, affectionate and bizarre scrutiny. Please note this new release of the second edition has not been updated.

Book Summary:

As the population of Latinx students grows in U.S. public schools and our nation seeks to address systemic inequities, racism, and xenophobia, this counternarrative provides inspiration to those wishing to reinvigorate schools and build a more caring and just world. This book documents the innovative practices, successes, and struggles of a full-service community high school serving mostly low-income, Latinx youth in an economically depressed California city. Based on 4 years of qualitative research, the author examines how educators, families, and community members established and sustained a social justice school that immersed youth in authentic cariño—a holistic blend of familial, intellectual, and critical care. By nurturing students’ moral, social, personal, and academic development, the school produced college-bound graduates ready to be agents of change in their own lives and in their communities. This case study synthesizes and extends scholarship on color-conscious, healing-centered educational care and offers rich portrayals of praxis that illuminate how schools can equip marginalized youth to thrive. “Although directed toward Latinx students, this work will benefit all students! Curry has provided us with a masterpiece.” —Gloria Ladson-Billings, professor emerita, University of Wisconsin-Madison “A must-read for teachers, researchers, and practitioners searching for a deeply authentic model for transforming schooling.” —Shawn Ginwright, San Francisco State University

Book Summary:

* Unique woodcut illustrations decorate both volumes * Trail map to follow story locations in each volume * For both hikers and armchair adventurers of the PCT Exploring the people, places, and history of the Pacific Crest Trail as it ranges 2,600 miles from Mexico to Canada, THE PACIFIC CREST TRAILSIDE READER EBOOK brings together short excerpts from classic works of regional writing with boot-tested stories from the trail. The heart of this anthology is these real trail tales, stories taken from PCT hikers: trailside humor and traditions, "trail angels" and "trail magic," encounters with wildlife and wild weather, stories of being lost and found, rescues, and unusual incidents. Revealing a larger context are historical accounts of events such as Moses Schallenberger's winter on Donner Pass and pioneer efforts like the old Naches Road that ended up creating access to today's trails; Native American myths and legends such as that of Lost Lake near Mount Hood; and selections from highly-regarded environmental writers who have captured the region in print, including Mary Austin in The Land of Little Rain ; John Muir in The Mountains of California; and Barry Lopez in Crossing Open Ground. Readers will also enjoy a few more surprising contributions from the likes of Mark Twain and Ursula Le Guin. For this digital edition of the PCT READER, we combined our two print volumes into a single, robust ebook that features stories from both the CALIFORNIA and OREGON & WASHINGTON volumes. Because the two-volume set is a compilation of old and new essays, however, the editors were not able to obtain digital publication rights for some of the previously published material. So while this combination ebook includes all the newly commissioned stories, as well as many other pieces for which the editors did have digital access, there are approximately four contributions from each of the printed books that do not appear here.

The information herein was accumulated of fifty some odd years. The collection process started when TV first came out and continued until today. The books are in alphabetical order and cover shows from the 1940s to 2010. The author has added a brief explanation of each show and then listed all the characters, who played the roles and for the most part, the year or years the actor or actress played that role. Also included are most of the people who created the shows, the producers, directors, and the writers of the shows. These books are a great source of trivia information and for most of the older folk will bring back some very fond memories. I know a lot of times we think back and say, "Who was the guy that played such and such a role?" Enjoy!

A multiple award-winning author in both the mystery and western arenas, Morgan has collected here in JUNCTION a selection of stories guaranteed to show you why. Join her at the crossroad and choose which of her versatile characters you’ll visit first, from FBI agent turned antiques picker Jeff Talbot (from the bestselling Antique Lovers Mysteries) to Detroit’s hard-boiled P.I. Mary Shelley and to the motley and indomitable cast found in her tales of the old—and changing—west. Entries in this collection include two never-before-published stories: fittingly, one is western, the other is mystery. “Tinsel Town” offers a glimpse of the Hollywood frontier, courtesy of Tully and Wall—two bona fide cowboys looking to lasso an easier life. “Campaign for a Corpse” plops Jeff Talbot into the middle of a glamper (glamorous camper) event at a campground where someone’s been murdered. Through this collection, you’ll walk Motown’s mean streets and ride the vast and often brutal frontier; you’ll get an inside look at Jeff Talbot’s killer antiques world, as well as towns struggling for survival—whether they be contemporary Detroit or beyond the lawless threshold of the nineteenth-century west. Award-winning author Loren D. Estleman says in his introduction to JUNCTION: “There are no low points between these covers. Working fields as tried-and-true as the western and the mystery, [Morgan] manages to reinvent the genres with freshness, wit, and a way with a phrase that makes one think of a master cabinetmaker hand-rubbing raw mahogany to a high gloss. Call it talent, genius, or magic; what follows is all those things and the bucket of sweat we call professionalism.”

Book Summary:

Sanctuary in the Desert is a thirty-day devotional documenting a Christians wilderness journey and discovery of Gods presence. As the travelers connection to God unfolds, his all-encompassing love is often reminiscent of the beautiful relationship between the bridegroom and the bride in the Song of Solomon in the Bible. No believer who chooses to follow Christ is exempt from the desert experience, though circumstances differ in each travelers passage. The trial by fire may be personal, financial, or economic distress from the loss of a job, home, or health. However, the purpose of the wilderness and the knowledge imparted to the sojourner remain the same. Originally titled Forty Days in the Desert . . . and Counting, the theme of this devotional is ongoing. The traveler oftentimes is bound by his perception of past failure, present immobility, and future uncertainty. Yet he moves forward, mindful that failure is a necessary evil and a facet of success. The expectation is that with every tumble, the journeyman will jump back onto his horse, re-enter the race, and ride hard until he crosses the finish line. Philippians 3:1214 aptly urges the seeker to press on toward the high calling of Jesus Christforgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.

Book Summary:

Bizarre military history: In 1979, a crack commando unit was established by the most gifted minds within the U.S. Army. Defying all known laws of physics and accepted military practice, they believed that a soldier could adopt the cloak of invisibility, pass cleanly through walls, and—perhaps most chillingly—kill goats just by staring at them. They were the First Earth Battalion, entrusted with defending America from all known adversaries. And they really weren’t joking. What’s more, they’re back—and they’re fighting the War on Terror. An uproarious exploration of American military paranoia: With investigations ranging from the mysterious “Goat Lab,” to Uri Geller’s covert psychic work with the CIA, to the increasingly bizarre role played by a succession of U.S. presidents, this might just be the funniest, most unsettling book you will ever read—if only because it is all true and is still happening today.
