It was free for a few hours today. One of those "short turn-around" freebies, I guess. The Christmas Dog was also only free for a few hours.

A lifelong reader, now may my life be long enough to catch up on my reading!

Believe You Can--The Power of a Positive Attitude 

John Mason

Baker Publishing Group

Publication date: 3/1/2010

 

Dare to be you and great things will happen!

You were created to make a difference. You were created to live a unique and unlimited life. No one else is you, and no one else could be you.

So what holds you back from being all that God meant you to be? It's buying into the lie that you can't, won't, or shouldn't achieve your dreams.

John Mason, the bestselling author of An Enemy Called Average and You Can Do It--Even if Others Say You Can't, calls you to embrace a positive attitude so that you can reach your potential. His encouraging, challenging, and motivating nuggets of truth fill every page, including:

-You have the potential and opportunity for success
-Don't let regrets replace your dreams
-Dare reach beyond yourself
-Excellence is never a surprise
-Sometimes the more you do, the less you get done
-And so much more!

Success in life is not an accident--but it's not just dumb luck either. If you are ready to achieve positive results in your life, then Believe You Can!

John Mason is a bestselling author, minister, and speaker. He is the founder and president of Insight International and Insight Publishing Group, organizations dedicated to helping people reach their God-given dreams and fulfill their destiny.

Newly widowed Charlotte Figg purchases a double-wide trailer sight unseen and moves to the Paradise Trailer Park with her dog, Lucky. Unfortunately, neither the trailer nor Paradise are what Charlotte expected. Her trailer is a ramshackle old place in need of major repair, and the people of Paradise are harboring more secrets than Bayer has aspirin. Charlotte's new friend Rose Tattoo learns that Charlotte played softball and convinces her to rally the women of Paradise into a team. Reluctant at first, Charlotte warms to the notion and is soon coaching the Paradise Angels. Meanwhile, Charlotte discovers that the manager of Paradise, Fergus Wrinkel, abuses his wife, Suzy. Charlotte sets out to find a way to save Suzy from Fergus and in the process comes to a difficult realization about her own painful marriage.

Re: Free NOOKbook summary thread - please no OT

Preparing CEOs For Success  


Pub Date: 05/01/2010

Publisher: HJ Heinz Co

 

Summary:

Chief Executive Officer William R. Johnson of the H. J. Heinz Company, in support of his own CEO succession planning and development efforts, sponsored the research project that prompted publication of this book. The work was made possible by the participation and remarkable candor of Bill and twenty-six other sitting CEOs of global companies. Drs. Leslie W. Braksick and James S. Hillgren of the Continuous Learning Group, Inc. conducted the research during 2008 and 2009. The purpose of the research is to provide unvarnished advice based on the real experiences of sitting CEOs to assist in preparing future CEOs, executives, and leaders. Often, the participants’ experiences were unflattering to themselves or their companies, and yet they shared openly and honestly with the assurance of confidentiality. It matters not who said what, but rather that an impressive collection of CEO peers offered these important insights for future peer CEOs.

That Voodoo You Do  

by Jodi Redford

(Samhain)

Romance

 

Something dead this way comes…

That Old Black Magic, Book 1

For ten long years Griffin Trudeau has managed to keep his paws off Jemma Finnegan, best friend and leading star of his kinkiest fantasies. As her appointed cat familiar, indulging those fantasies with the delectable witch is strictly forbidden. But when Jemma shows up at his door with seduction in mind, control goes right out the window.

Too late he realizes making love to Jemma is the trigger that launches a zombie apocalypse.

Jemma’s been dealt a double whammy: she’s just discovered she’s a witch. And Griff has been hiding whiskers and a tail. Oh, and if her life wasn’t crazy enough, a dead voodoo queen needs her blood to raise a legion of zombies.

There’s one plan that might work to increase Jemma’s powers so she can put an end to the looming holocaust. A sexy threesome with Griff and Logan Scott, a werewolf familiar with a history of rubbing Griff’s fur the wrong way. A cat and a wolf playing nice, much less sharing? It’ll take a miracle.

Warning: A witch, tiger and wolf doing naughty things. A dead voodoo queen doing evil things. And zombies doing zombie things. Get your shovels ready.

Napoleon's Pyramids (Ethan Gage Series #1)  

by William Dietrich

(HarperCollins)

Historical Fiction

 

Publishers Weekly

At the start of Dietrich's superb historical thriller, his swashbuckling hero, American Ethan Gage, who's living in Paris during the waning days of the French Revolution and was once apprenticed to Benjamin Franklin, wins a curious Egyptian medallion in a card game. Soon after, he's set upon by thieves, chased by the police, attacked by bandits, befriended by Gypsies, saved by a British spy and then packed off to join Napoleon's army as it embarks on its ill-fated Egyptian campaign. There the story really heats up. Once in Egypt, Gage finds himself beset by evildoers bent on stealing the mysterious medallion. As in previous novels like Hadrian's Walland Scourge of God, Dietrich combines a likable hero surrounded by a cast of fascinating historical characters. Riveting battle scenes, scantily clad women, mathematical puzzles, mysteries of the pharaohs, reckless heroism, hairsbreadth escapes and undaunted courage add up to unbeatable adventure rivaling the exploits of George Macdonald Fraser's Harry Flashman. Readers will cheer as the indomitable Gage floats off in a runaway hot-air balloon, hard on the trail of his next exotic undertaking. Author tour. (Feb.)

Invisible (Ivy Malone Series #1)  

by Lorena McCourtney

(Baker)

Women Sleuths

 

She's not your average crime fighter!

Meet Ivy Malone, an inconspicuous older woman who has a mutant curiosity gene that often lands her in trouble. Unlike most women her age, she snoops and pries her gray-haired self into one hilarious escapade after another. So when vandals romp through the local cemetery, Ivy can't help but put her snooping eyes to work as she launches her own unofficial investigation.

Despite her unconventional sleuthing, Ivy soon becomes discouraged by her failure to turn up any solid clues. And after Ivy witnesses something ominous and unexplained, she can't resist putting her investigative powers to work again. Even the authorities' attempts to keep her out of danger and her nosy neighbor's match-making schemes can't slow Ivy down. But will the determination that fuels this persistent, spunky sleuth threaten her very safety?

"I laughed out loud. McCourtney's charming mystery debuts a voice both enchanting and startling."-Colleen Coble, author of Without a Trace

"McCourtney's skill at blending whimsy, quirks, and questions into a lead character makes Invisible a must read."-Lois Richer, author of Dangerous Sanctuary

"Invisible is a treat! Ivy Malone is a heroine with spunk and determination!"-Carol Cox, author of A Stitch in Time

The Incredible Tito  

by Howard Fast

(Open Road Publishing)

Biographies & Memoirs

 

Fast’s fascinating biography of Joseph Broz, known to the world as Tito, including his rise to power and his remarkable stand against fascism

The world was mired in the Second World War when Howard Fast wrote The Incredible Tito. Upon the book’s publication in 1944, there was still no united Yugoslavia, the Axis controlled most of Europe, and D-Day was only in the planning stages. In the Balkans, Tito was a beacon of hope against the advancing Nazis. He led a force of resistance fighters that bedeviled the occupying German army throughout Slavic regions and empowered people’s committees to act as local government in all liberated areas. For observers on the political left, Tito seemed uniquely poised to unite the East and West against fascism—once and for all. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author’s estate.

The Clinch Knot  

by John Galligan

(F+W)

Mystery & Thrillers

 

The Dog is in Livingston, Montana, daydreaming about fishing the Stone and, as usual, subsisting on Swisher Sweets, vodka-Tang, and the hope that pretending to forget will be enough.

He's forged a few tenuous friendships, and now finds himself watching from the bank as troubled local girl Jesse Ringer leads D'Ontario Sneed into the swift current of young love. It's sweet, really . . . but some of the locals object to the relationship on the basis of Sneed's skin color.

Then the unthinkable: vibrant, wild Jesse is found shot in the head, and Sneed is passed out in her car, gun beside him, window seams taped, and engine running. Sneed is hospitalized for severe carbon monoxide poisoning and can't string together a sentence to defend himself, so it falls to the Dog.

If only the Dog could run from his life without ending up in the tangle and snarl of the lives of others. A man who wants to lose himself in the current must be careful of his backcast; it'll always keep him tethered to a life he's trying to forget.
