This Is Where I Leave You: A Novel by Jonathan Tropper – A riotously funny, emotionally raw novel – $2.99 0 comments

The death of Judd Foxman’s father marks the first time that the entire Foxman clan has congregated in years. There is, however, one conspicuous absence: Judd’s wife, Jen, whose affair with his radio- shock-jock boss has recently become painfully public.
Simultaneously mourning the demise of his father and his marriage, Judd joins his dysfunctional family as they reluctantly sit shiva-and spend seven days and nights under the same roof. The week quickly spins out of control as longstanding grudges resurface, secrets are revealed and old passions are reawakened. Then Jen delivers the clincher: she’s pregnant.

Julie and Romeo: A Novel – A deliciously funny novel of love found (finally!) and love threatened (inevitably) by the families – $1.99 0 comments

Romeo Cacciamani and Julie Roseman are rival florists in Boston, whose families have hated each other for as long as anyone can remember (what they can’t remember is why). When these two vital, lonely people see each other across a crowded lobby at a small business owners’ seminar, an intense attraction blooms that neither tries to squelch. They’re not sure what fate has in store for them, but they’re not about to let something as silly as a generations-long feud stand in the way of finding out.
That is, not until Romeo’s octogenarian mother, Julie’s meddling ex-husband, and a cast of grown Cacciamani and Roseman children begin to intervene with a passionate hatred that matches their newly found love, stroke for stroke. Think Montagues and Capulets, think wise and witty and thoroughly modern.
Julie and Romeo is a love story for the ages. Buy it today for $1.99.

Vermeer’s Hat – The age when globalization really began – $1.99 0 comments

A Vermeer painting shows a military officer in a Dutch sitting room, talking to a laughing girl. In another canvas, fruit spills from a blue-and-white porcelain bowl. Familiar images that captivate us with their beauty–but as Timothy Brook shows us, these intimate pictures actually give us a remarkable view of an expanding world. The officer’s dashing hat is made of beaver fur from North America, and it was beaver pelts from America that financed the voyages of explorers seeking routes to China-prized for the porcelains so often shown in Dutch paintings of this time, including Vermeer’s.
In this dazzling history, Timothy Brook uses Vermeer’s works, and other contemporary images from Europe, Asia, and the Americas to trace the rapidly growing web of global trade, and the explosive, transforming, and sometimes destructive changes it wrought in the age when globalization really began. Buy this book for $1.99 today. Audiobook: $2.99.

The Year of Living Biblically: One Man’s Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible – $1.99 0 comments

Raised in a secular family but increasingly interested in the relevance of faith in our modern world, A.J. Jacobs decides to dive in headfirst and attempt to obey the Bible as literally as possible for one full year. He vows to follow the Ten Commandments. To be fruitful and multiply. To love his neighbor. But also to obey the hundreds of less publicized rules: to avoid wearing clothes made of mixed fibers; to play a ten-string harp; to stone adulterers.
The resulting spiritual journey is at once funny and profound, reverent and irreverent, personal and universal and will make you see history’s most influential book with new eyes.
Jacobs’s quest transforms his life even more radically than the year spent reading the entire Encyclopedia Britannica for He immerses himself in prayer, tends sheep in the Israeli desert, battles idolatry, and tells the absolute truth in all situations—much to his wife’s chagrin.
Throughout the book, Jacobs also embeds himself in a cross-section of communities that take the Bible literally. Jacobs’s extraordinary undertaking yields unexpected epiphanies and challenges. A book that will charm readers both secular and religious, The Year of Living Biblically is part Cliff Notes to the Bible, part memoir, and part look into worlds unimaginable. Thou shalt not be able to put it down. Buy this book today for $1.99.
NOTE: THIS BOOK IS NOT A FAITH-BASED PUBLICATION. CLASSIFIED AS HUMOR.

The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death: Reflections on Revenge, Germophobia, and Laser Hair Removal – $1.99 0 comments

Laurie Notaro has an uncanny ability to attract insanity–and leave readers doubled over with laughter. Need proof? Check out The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death and try not to bust a gut.
Join Notaro as she experiences the popular phenomenon of laser hair removal (because at least one of her chins should be stubble-free); bemoans the scourge of the Open Mouth Coughers on America’s airplanes and in similarly congested areas; welcomes the newest ex-con (yay, a sex offender!) to her neighborhood; and watches, against her own better judgment, every Discovery Health Channel special on parasites and tapeworms that has ever aired–resulting in an overwhelming fear that a worm the size of a python will soon come a-knocking on her back door.
With The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death, Notaro proves she’s not only funny but resigned to the fact that you can’t look bad ass in a Prius. Don’t even try.

Men Are Stupid . . . And They Like Big Boobs: A Woman’s Guide to Beauty Through Plastic Surgery by Joan Rivers – $2.99 0 comments

Red-carpet fashion laureate, comic icon, and outspoken superstar Joan Rivers is uniquely qualified to talk about plastic surgery — because she’s one of the few celebrities unafraid to admit to the world what she’s “had done” to keep looking so great. Now, in this no-holds-barred book, she gives women straight-talking advice on better living through looking better.
Joan Rivers’ abiding life philosophy is simple: in the appearance-centric society of the twenty-first century, beauty is key — especially where men are concerned.
But don’t worry — there’s dish, too. Filled with Rivers’ personal anecdotes about life under the knife, Men Are Stupid…And They Like Big Boobs is also rife with Hollywood gossip about who’s done what and how often. Part comic musing, part bitch-fest, and part hands-on advice, this is a bracingly funny, wildly frank, and genuinely passionate argument for a woman’s right to do whatever it takes to be beautiful, to feel better about herself, and most of all to be happy — not only with who she is, but who she wants to be.
