Chemical warfare has obliterated most of the world, including America, and the survivors have turned into feral beasts, save one colony, Antius, the last remnant of civilization. Seventeen-year-old Cori (aka Citizen 1206) only longs for wide open spaces and freedom. But Antius has no use for such things, just mindless drones to serve in a place with walls, fences, and laws. A lot of laws, which Cori constantly breaks. So she’s spent years plotting her escape, which is the only thing that will save her from the colony’s deranged leader, Nathan. She isn’t looking to be a hero, and she certainly isn’t looking to fall in love, but she just might do both.

THOSE WHO SAY LIFE IS STRANGER THAN FICTION, DON’T READ A LOT OF FICTION.
Welcome to history according to Oleg Medvedkov. Compared by critics to Twain, Wodehouse, and Vonnegut, Medvedkov is a fast-rising name in the humor and comedy genre. His new book, “Let’s Conquer Paris,” adds a much-needed dose of hilarity to popular myths, legends, and historical events. Did you know that:
✔ Stories of Minotaur roaming the labyrinth, or adventures of Greek Gods and Heroes can be hilarious, if done right?
✔ The fall of Troy is a natural comedy gold?
✔ If you take a time machine and add New Zealand to it, you can see it all going to hell in a handbasket while you are laughing hysterically?
As you read this book, please keep in mind: This is a humor book first, and historical fiction a distant tenth. Laugh now, try to fail history tests later.
Modern moms are constantly bouncing from place to place. After school activities, work, doctor’s appointments, even daily errands get in the way of the ability to cook a nutritious and tasty meal for the family. The ability to cook just about anything in a slow cooker can alter that imbalance.
Slow cookers are the most overlooked and valuable kitchen appliance in the modern home. Almost everyone has one, but most people don’t realize the versatility of slow cookers. This recipe collection provides just a brief introduction to what these appliances can do. The recipes contain ingredients found in most kitchens, and produce delicious and healthy results.
The goal of feeding a family is providing healthy food that you can feel good about preparing and serving. Processed foods are an easy answer, but their nutrient value is lower, and their sodium content is generally higher than home-cooked meals. This collection strives to provide a wide variety of options using very few processed items. That said, there are some items such as soup stocks and tomato sauce that are used. As a result, I’ve included a brief prologue with some basic recipes for kitchen staples that you can make ahead.
Each recipe was prepared in our test kitchen. Each recipe includes an original picture of the actual recipe that was prepared.
Written like a suite in eight movements, Pieces is a novel about music, with leitmotifs, repetitions, counterpoint, harmony and disharmony. The story begins in Oklahoma with a five-year-old violin prodigy who has perfect pitch and a remarkable teacher named Tosca. The following movements, or chapters, capture the protagonist’s teen years in Connecticut, student years at Princeton, jazz concerts in New York, and then the big jump to Europe. An enchanting work that carries one along in a flow and movement that is very much like a symphony.
