Book Summary:

Strange science facts! Hilarious history facts! Informative and Fun! A treat of science and history stories and trivia that will inform and entertain anyone curious about the world! From astonishing, amazing and surprising science and history facts to the little-known stories hidden inside bigger events, The Big Book of Facts is a fascinating tour through our weird and interesting world. You’ll learn about the earth and its history through absorbing stories and interesting tidbits. Did you know ... Babies start laughing at just a few weeks old; there are ten discernible types of laughter; and laughter spurs our appetite for food? Like fingerprints, every tongue on Earth has a unique print? The history of the U.S. Postal Service, including the Pony Express, ... and the short-lived (but legal) practice of mailing children? Hand washing was not always common through history; toilet paper was invented in the 1400s, and Sir John Harington invented the flushable toilet for Queen Elizabeth I? Though they are all differently shaped by virtue of being an assembly of water droplets, there are ten basic kinds of clouds? A basic and quick history of cash in America, including Alexander Hamilton and the Bank of the United States, Benjamin Franklin’s efforts to thwart counterfeiting, $100,000 bills, and the fact that more than 85% of the world’s money is digital only? Though Shakespeare mentioned Valentine’s Day in “Hamlet,” sending paper cards to a beloved wasn’t a fad until the eighteenth century, and by the 1840s, insulting Valentine cards also became common? Government agencies in the U.S. and France both agree that the measure of a second is determined by how long it takes a cesium atom to vibrate just over nine billion times? The history of children’s games such as hide-and-seek, blindman's bluff, and jacks that date back to the ancient Greeks and Romans? And much, much more. Engrossing, engaging, and enlightening, The Big Book of Facts lets you discover the fun oddities that make up our world. Wide-ranging and fact-filled with nearly 160 illustrations, this information-rich tome also includes a helpful bibliography and an extensive index for those scrambling for more information.

Book Summary:

Life has become "Zombified." The air itself carries death or worse. A few hardy, starving souls band together to try to make sense of Life's new rulebook while holding on to what little "humanity" they have left. Husk: A Tale of Human Hunger is a book that examines Lifes incomprehensible, insatiable and cannibalistic need to consume life. Set in the oddest zombie apocalypse imaginable, it follows the paths of several starving characters, all precariously balanced between lack and plenty, in their never ending search for more food. After the reader is finished with this story, they may have to ask themselves an uncomfortable question: Am I alive, dead . . . or neither? Husk: A Tale of Human Hunger is the first book in a trilogy. The second book will take the story in a whole new direction, resolving many of the conflicts left open in Husk. Expect the second book sometime in the summer...if the world survives! Husk: A Tale of Human Hunger deals with mature subject matter, has strong language and is intended for a mature audience. The main theme of the novel is the overriding emptiness in all people (for food, stuff, power, love, you name it) which is never questioned and can seemingly never be filled. The trilogy hopes to expose the alternative. Like an unexpected olive pit on unsuspecting martini-teeth, Husk is intended to unsettle, both with its subject matter and style. The author hopes you enjoy the zombie apocalypse and disease he has constructed. He also hopes you appreciate the pre-existing human condition that puts anything the zombies could hope to accomplish to shame. Facebook/huskatale #huskbook

Book Summary:

The true story of how Hollywood musicals got one person through school, depression, and the challenges of parenthood Inspired by the visual richness and cinematic structure of the Hollywood musical, Blame This on the Boogie chronicles the adventures of a Filipino American girl born in the decade of disco who escapes life's hardships and mundanity through the genre's feel-good song-and-dance numbers. Rina Ayuyang explores how the glowing charm of the silver screen can transform reality, shaping a person's approach to childhood, relationships, sports, reality TV, and eventually politics, parenthood, and mortality. Ayuyang's comics are as vibrant as the movies that she loves. Her deeply personal, moving stories unveil the magic of the world around us--rendering the ordinary extraordinary through a jazzed-up song-and-dance routine. Ayuyang showcases the way her love of musicals became a form of therapeutic distraction to circumnavigate a childhood of dealing with cultural differences, her struggles with postpartum depression, and an adulthood overshadowed by an increasingly frightening and depressing political climate. Blame This on the Boogie is Ayuyang's ode to the melody of the world, and shows how tuning out of life and into the magic of Hollywood can actually help an outsider find her place in it.

Book Summary:

Vulnerable at first glance, a second look assured secret agent Ben McKinnon that Shauna Taylor could take care of herself. At least with anyone else. Because Shauna seemed unprepared for the passion Ben stirred within her. Or the tender emotions the child in his care conjured up. Yet, rather than run, she opened her home to them, knowing Ben needed her—just as she needed him. Still, Ben's assignment would soon end, leaving Shauna alone. Unless the brooding loner realized that with Shauna he'd have more than a job—he'd have a life…and love….
