The Studying Hours: How to Date a Douchebag

by Sara Ney

Sebastian â??Oz’ Osborne is a walking, talking cliche.
One of the university’s most celebrated student athleteâ??and possibly the biggest douchebag–Oz has a filthy mouth, a fantastic body, and doesn’t give a sh*t about what you, or anyone else thinks. He loves to have fun,but loves winning even more.

Jameson Clarke may be the university’s most diligent studentâ??but she is no prude. She spends most of her time in the hallowed halls of the library, not because she’s a brainiac–but because she’s not. School doesn’t come easy, and she’s determined to finish the year without a D.

D stands for Douchebag.

Oz is a champion wrestler; one of the best. And he didn’t fight his way to the top by backing down from a challenge.

He wants to be friends with Jameson.
He wants to spend time with her.

The Slow Death of American Democracy: 50 Reasons the US is Not a True Democracy and How We Can Fix It

by Ross Rosenfeld

Voter suppression, legalized bribery, the destruction of unions, poverty, racism, a partisan Supreme Court and much, much more – we are witnessing the deterioration of American democracy right before our eyes. It’s time to fight back.

In this book you’ll find fifty problems with American democracy laid bare, encompassing everything from the Electoral College to the disproportionate make up of the Senate to our extremely skewed tax code to shadow organizations with enormous influence over our government.

If you’re a liberal, if you’re a progressive, if you’re part of the Resistance, this book will give you the intellectual ammunition you need to combat the extremist Republican Party and the injustices we’re seeing all around us. We can no longer sit back while conservatives take names off of voting lists and add names to prison rosters.

Bernie Sanders once said that we have to decide whether we want to be a democracy or an oligarchy. Right now we have an oligarch president in Donald Trump, the poster-child for greed and privilege. We have corporations not only influencing our politicians, but often writing the laws themselves. And we have a growing wealth gap between the richest 1% and the rest of us.

Some of the information you’ll find this book will truly shock you. But we can change things. It begins by defeating the lies from the other side. Let’s get started.

Luke (The Hometown Heroes Series Book 1)

by Leigh Duncan

Fourth-generation cattleman Luke Parker looks into his childless future and wonders what will become of the ranch he’s worked so hard to preserve.

Sarah Magarity’s job with the Department of Children and Family Services has exposed her to the worst side of parenting. So much so that the altruistic redhead doubts she’ll ever have children of her own.

The solution to both their problems might be a five-year-old boy abandoned on DCF’s doorstep just days before Christmas, but only if the cowboy can convince a jaded social worker that he’s good father material on a two-week cattle drive through Florida’s version of the Old West.

Bewitching (Regency Magic Book 1)

by Jill Barnett

She had bewitched the most serious, snobbish, and handsome Duke in England. Joyous MacQuarrie…the pixie-like, green-eyed beauty had appeared from nowhere and fell unashamedly into his arms. And all that his society friends knew of the mysterious lady was that she was Scottish and that her grandmother had been a Locksley. Even her fine bloodline didn’t make Joy quite proper enough to be a Duchess, but a proud nobleman like Alec, Duke of Belmore, did as he pleased…and he wanted to marry the beautiful girl who aroused his desire.
But Alec soon discovered he could not do what he pleased with Joy Fiona MacQuarrie. Bubbling with laughter, filled with spirit, she turned stately Belmore Park upside down with merriment and strange occurrences. She might even have gotten Alec to laugh — and to cherish her — if it had not been for the truth she hid. Though he turned to fire when he tasted her petal-soft lips, he turned to ice when he discovered that this winsome lady was, in fact, a witch, a witch whose powers of white magic were not always perfectly under control.
Too late, Joy knew she was desperately in love and that nothing could stop the course of their destiny — the scandal threatening to destroy her and the passion that held them both spellbound in a forbidden, irresistible match of two enchanted hearts.

Living with Grief: 36 Lessons from Life

by David Pierce

The authors* in Living with Grief: 36 Lessons from Life share with us their experiences of profound grief. They do not offer comfortable platitudes; they do not recommend simplistic methods of cleaning the mind of sorrow or the heart of pain. Instead, they chronicle their own ongoing struggles with grief. They tell us that they have learned, above all, not to try to banish grief, but to live with it and learn from it. They tell us that grief is real. And they tell us that our lives can still be meaningful, even though we have suffered the deepest loss.

The anthology is one example of a bereavement sanctuary. In this literary environment, the authors explore grief on their own terms. Readers may do the same. Here, you may immerse yourself in a variety of grieving experiences, as well as comforting and nurturing ones, and emerge intact, with an enhanced ability to consider life and death.

You will learn from this book that it is possible to live with grief, should you care to do so. Inspiration exists here in case you ever require it to make your own journeys of discovery into grief and mourning.

Seekers of the Lost Boy

by Taryn Hayes

“What is that?” Simon narrowed his eyes, trying to make out the object at the water’s edge. It was probably nothing. Except… it glowed.

Set in Cape Town, South Africa, Seekers of the Lost Boy is an adventure that brings a homeschooling family face to face with the atrocities of their apartheid past.

It begins when 12-year-old Simon finds a bottle on the water’s edge during a visit to Muizenberg beach on a cold winter’s day. He brings the bottle home, dreaming of adventures, pirates and hidden treasures, only to have the bottle shatter within minutes of returning home. At first he is dismayed, but his disappointment is soon turned to intrigue when he discovers an envelope in the bottle. It contains a letter written 30 years prior by another 12-year-old school boy from the poverty-stricken Cape Flats. The letter is brief and contains one question: Who is God and does he care about me?

The letter fascinates the Ward family, so they embark on a journey of discovery. Through clues left in the letter, Simon, his mom and his twin 10-year-old siblings, Nic and Kim, find themselves revisiting their country’s apartheid past as they search for their mystery letter-writer.
