Summary:

Opposites attract? Maybe not. Emilie Getz and Jonas Fielding are as different as two people—of the same age, with the same faith, living in the same charming Pennsylvania town—could be. She loves history; he loves new ideas. She sticks to the rules; he likes to break them. She’s into saving relics; he’s into saving souls. The one trait they share is a penchant for controlling every aspect of their lives, including their stubborn hearts. When Emilie’s search for an archaeological treasure leads her to the one piece of land she can’t have (thanks to Jonas), they choose opposing sides in an engaging battle of wits. Emilie, a no-nonsense sort of woman, is determined to have her way. But Jonas is on a mission as well: He wants to hear Emilie laugh. Often. Reviews “Liz Curtis Higgs mixes her usual humor into this entertaining story of roller-coaster romance.” Christian Retailing “Delicious as Moravian sugar cake! Readers will love it.” Lori Copeland, author of Roses Will Bloom Again “Bookends is such fun…rich in character, setting, and spiritual dimensions.” Gayle Roper, author of Winter Winds “A great story with believable characters, realistic situations, and a sprinkling of Higgs’s humor.” K-LOVE News & Reviews “Declare a holiday and cozy up with this engaging novel.” Patsy Clairmont, author of Stardust on My Pillow Story Behind the Book Though she has traveled the world, Liz Curtis Higgs is a small-town girl at heart. In Bookends, Liz invites readers to visit a place she knows well: her hometown of Lititz, nestled in the rolling hills of historic Lancaster County , Pennsylvania . Fond memories of her childhood years in the Moravian church—one of the oldest of the Protestant denominations—and her love for Lititz history and traditions serve as a solid underpinning for this lively contemporary tale. Like many couples, Emilie and Jonas resemble human bookends—opposites in every way—until Emilie’s joy-filled spiritual awakening turns their stubborn hearts in the same happy direction.

Summary:

This book examines the history of electronic media in education, from film through radio, television, and automated instruction, ending with a look at contemporary educational technology. It shows how every new educational medium is argued to be compatible with the popular theories of learning, pedagogy, and curriculum of its time, and is embraced by school reformers as a means toward achieving the changes they desire. In particular, the book highlights the common themes that run through these stories, and that characterize today's discussions of educational technology. There is much to be learned from this history that is currently being ignored or discounted. The book is unique in that it makes a concerted effort to place this history of educational technology in context. It relates that history to ideas about what schools are for, how teachers should teach, how students learn, who has the right to control what goes on in public schools, what the curriculum should consist of, and what the agenda for school reform should be. It places contemporary ideas about educational technology in the context of Americans' longstanding love affair with technology, their belief in progress, and their tendency to connect progress, technology, and public education. Finally, it examines the question of what public education for a democracy should consist of, and how technology, in particular, should or should not come into play in fashioning public education for democratic citizenship.

Summary:

Marceline is the place in everyone's heart that has the warm glow of old memories of growing up. It's the explanation of why we can't wait to grow up but end up wishing we never had. We all have a Marceline somewhere that was left behind but never forgotten. This one is extra special as it transpires in the 1950s when things seemed simple and kind of innocent. The everyday events in a small-town boy's life represent what made him a man and transcends the serious side because these events were mostly funny. The story follows a '50's blue collar kid through childhood with all the wonderful learning experiences that involved peers and family but also includes some of the negatives that real life deals out. The reader gets the opportunity to be there when he first notices girls, gets to bat the first time in little league, and walks off into the world alone.

Reflecting a lifetime of travel and people from everywhere, Ian Coulls's stories are drawn from Western, Middle Eastern and Far Eastern cultures.

Summary:

A brilliant, idiosyncratic collection of introductions and afterwords (plus some liner notes) by New York Times bestselling and Pulitzer Prize winning author Michael Chabon—“one of contemporary literature’s most gifted prose stylists” (Michiko Kakutani, New York Times). In Bookends, Pulitzer Prize winning author Michael Chabon offers a compilation of pieces about literature—age-old classics as well as his own—that presents a unique look into his literary origins and influences, the books that shaped his taste and formed his ideas about writing and reading. Chabon asks why anyone would write an introduction, or for that matter, read one. His own daughter Rose prefers to skip them. Chabon's answer is simple and simultaneously profound: "a hope of bringing pleasure for the reader." Likewise, afterwords—they are all about shared pleasure, about the "pure love" of a work of art that has inspired, awakened, transformed the reader. Ultimately, this thought-provoking compendium is a series of love letters and thank-you notes, unified by the simple theme of the shared pleasure of discovery, whether it's the boyhood revelation of the most important story in Chabon's life (Ray Bradbury's "The Rocket Man"); a celebration of "the greatest literary cartographer of the planet Mars" (Edgar Rice Burroughs, with his character John Carter); a reintroduction to a forgotten master of ghost stories (M. R. James, ironically "the happiest of men"); the recognition that the worlds of Wes Anderson's films are reassembled scale models of our own broken reality (as is all art); Chabon's own rude awakening from the muse as he writes his debut novel, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh; or a playful parody of lyrical interpretation in the liner notes for Mark Ronson's Uptown Special, the true purpose of which, Chabon insists, is to "spread the gospel of sensible automotive safety and maintenance practices." Galaxies away from academic or didactic, Bookends celebrates wonder—and like the copy of The Phantom Tollbooth handed to young Michael by a friend of his father he never saw again—it is a treasured gift.

Summary:

British sensation Jane Green delivers a sparkling tale of old friends reunited and old jealousies rekindled. Catherine Warner and Simon Nelson are best friends: total opposites, always together, and both unlucky in love. Cath is scatterbrained, messy, and—since she had her heart broken a few years back—emotionally closed off. Si is impossibly tidy, bitchy, and desperate for a man of his own. They live in London’s West Hampstead along with their lifelong friends, Josh and Lucy, who are happily married with a devil-spawn child and a terrifying Swedish nanny, Ingrid. All’s well (sort of) until the sudden arrival of a college friend—the stunningly beautiful Portia, who is known for breaking hearts. Though they’ve grown up and grown apart from Portia, the four friends welcome her back into the fold. But does Portia have a hidden agenda or is she merely looking to reconnect with old friends? Her reappearance soon unleashes a rollicking series of events that tests the foursome’s friendships to the limit and leaves them wondering if a happy ending is in store. Fortunately, Cath has plenty to take her mind off Portia’s schemes—like her gutsy decision to leave her job in advertising to fulfill her dream of opening a bookstore. And then there’s James, the sexy real-estate agent who keeps dropping by even after the bookstore deal is done. With his irresistible smile and boyish charm could he be the one to melt Cath’s heart? Told with Jane Green’s captivating wit and flare, Bookends is above all a story about friendship—its twists, turns and complications—and how it weathers the challenges of love, ambition, marriage, and, most of all, growing up. Warmhearted, sophisticated, and full of delicious surprises, Bookends is Green’s most dazzling novel yet.
