The Golden Goose (KiteReaders Classics) 

Publisher: Kite Reader

 

The Brothers Grimm's classic fairly tale sees new life in this enhanced eBook version, that renders the original illustrations by Leslie Brooke & text in a tastefully redesigned digital version with soft pastel colors. KiteReaders' The Golden Goose version also includes read along audio for kids to follow along the story if they are too young to read the book by themselves. The story synopsis: because of a kind deed, a simpleton receives a goose with feathers of pure gold. But when anyone comes too close to the goose, they get Hokety, pokety, stickety, stuck and have to follow the simpleton wherever he goes. The more people who get stuck, the funnier the procession becomes, until the simpleton inadvertently wins over a princess.

Simpleton's generosity helps him gain a princess for his bride.

The Big Sin 

 

  • ISBN-13: 9781440541445                       
  • Publisher: F+W Media
  • Publication date: 3/15/2012
  • Series:Prologue Books Series

Overview

When a determined Irish Catholic priest and a tough Jewish police detective team up to solve the murder of a gorgeous showgirl, the evidence of violence and corruption they uncover tears the town apart!

Of his fast and unusual thriller Jack Webb writes: “The Big Sin was written because I needed faith in myself. So I wrote a story about faith … For all the gaudiness my story may wear as a mystery filled with violence, good is good in it, and bad, bad, ant there’s strength enough in the simply faith within to swing the outcome.”

Father Shanley refused to believe that Rose had committed the big sin.

Shut Up and Kiss Me by Christie Craig (2011, re-released by author via Smashwords; previously published by LoveSpell/Dorchester Publishing)

 

Welcome to Precious, Texas, where fistfights serve as dinner theater and fire ants rain from the sky. The locals are very friendly, if a bit eccentric. No pictures please, or you may find yourself a guest of the county morgue.

Photojournalist Shala Winters already had her hands full bringing tourism to this backward, podunk town, but her job just got tougher. Pictures can say a thousand words, and one of Shala's is screaming bloody murder. Now she has to entrust a macho, infuriating lawman with her life -- but she'll never trust him with her heart.

Trusted or not, Sky Gomez isn't about to let a killer get his hands on Shala's Nikon -- or any of her more comely assets, for that matter. Her mouth might move faster than a Piney Woods roadrunner, but all he can think about is how good it must taste...and how she'll never escape true love.

by Ilan Alon

 

Global Franchising Operations Management: Cases in International and Emerging Markets Operations

 

Franchising now represents more than 10% of the US economy and 50% of US retail sales, and this winning business model is now showing exceptional promise outside the US as well. Both franchisors and franchisees are beginning to discover immense opportunities to extend operations or build new franchises in emerging markets. Of course, success will depend on their ability to execute – and extending successful franchising operations outside their home markets requires significant new skills, knowledge, and expertise. In Global Franchising Operations Management, the field’s leading expert and author brings together an unprecedented collection of in-depth cases that illuminate the field’s unexplored opportunities, key pitfalls, and proven best practices. Ilan Alon thoroughly covers key challenges from both the franchisor and franchisee perspective, teaching lessons learned by Marks and Spencer, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, Athlete’s Foot, Kodak, Sari Organic, and other pioneers. Through these cases, he addresses pivotal issues such as: Should you take your franchise operation global? What unique marketing and demand management challenges will you face in doing so? Do Master Franchisee or Micro-Franchising strategies make sense for you? What are their risks, and can those risks be managed? How can you efficiently manage logistics, supply chains, and operations in unfamiliar markets? Whatever your role or potential role in global franchising operations, this book will be an indispensable resource.

How the financial crisis really happened, and what it really meant: 3 books packed with lessons for investors and policymakers!

These three books offer unsurpassed insight into the causes and implications of the global financial crisis: information every investor and policy-maker needs to prepare for an extraordinarily uncertain future. In Financial Shock, Updated Edition, renowned economist Mark Zandi provides the most concise, lucid account of the economic, political, and regulatory causes of the collapse, plus new insights into the continuing impact of the Obama administration’s policies. Zandi doesn’t just illuminate the roles of mortgage lenders, investment bankers, speculators, regulators, and the Fed: he offers sensible recommendations for preventing the next collapse. In Extreme Money, best-selling author and global finance expert Satyajit Das reveals the spectacular, dangerous money games that are generating increasingly massive bubbles of fake growth, prosperity, and wealth, while endangering the jobs, possessions, and futures of everyone outside finance. Das explains how everything from home mortgages to climate change have become fully financialized… how “voodoo banking” keeps generating massive phony profits even now… and how a new generation of “Masters of the Universe” has come to own the world. Finally, in The Fearful Rise of Markets, top Financial Times global finance journalist John Authers reveals how the first truly global super bubble was inflated, and may now be inflating again. He illuminates the multiple roots of repeated financial crises, presenting a truly global view that avoids both oversimplification and ideology. Most valuable of all, Authers offers realistic solutions: for decision-makers who want to prevent disaster, and investors who want to survive it.

India: 1946. Blessing Ashish murmured. Such a name for a man cursed by a million gods For forty-eight years, his family toiled as slaves in the fields of the high-caste Lal family, and all because of one small debt. Ashish and his family knew nothing of the hatred for the British seething around them, nor of the struggle for independence that simmered throughout India. At fifty-four, Ashish was old and worn out. His wife had died long before how many years, he had no idea. Even though he had four sons to work beside him in the fields, every day was a struggle to survive. Sometimes his only daughter worked, too, but she also cooked and cleaned and kept the clothes in repair. His wife had named the girl Shridula Blessings. Perhaps the name will bring you more fortune than it brought me, Ashish told his daughter. His words proved to be prophetic in ways he could never have imagined. And when the flames of revolt brought independence to India, they seared change into the families of Ashish and Lal.

by Amy Garvey

 

Cold Kiss

It was a beautiful,
warm summer day,
the day Danny died.


Suddenly Wren was alone and shattered. In a heartbroken fury, armed with dark incantations and a secret power, Wren decides that what she wants—what she must do—is to bring Danny back.


But the Danny who returns is just a shell of the boy Wren fell in love with. His touch is icy; his skin, smooth and stiff as marble; his chest, cruelly silent when Wren rests her head against it.


Wren must keep Danny a secret, hiding him away, visiting him at night, while her life slowly unravels around her. Then Gabriel DeMarnes transfers to her school, and Wren realizes that somehow, inexplicably, he can sense the powers that lie within her—and that he knows what she has done. And now Gabriel wants to help make things right.


But Wren alone has to undo what she has wrought—even if it means breaking her heart all over again.

Lasting happiness is within your reach

Your life was meant to be a joyous journey. But when negative emotions such as discouragement, stress, loneliness, or grief take over, it can be difficult to put one foot in front of the other. The first step you must take to move past the issues that drag you down is to realize that happiness is not something that just happens to some people and not to others. Happiness is a decision you make.

Renowned Christian psychiatrist Dr. Frank Minirth shows you how to make that decision. Drawing from a deep well of experience, clinical practice, and devotional life, Minirth will empower you with many kinds of practical coping strategies. His unique blend of medical, behavioral, and biblical principles will help you overcome your circumstances and achieve lasting happiness.

Frank Minirth, MD, is the author of many bestselling books and the coauthor of Happiness Is a Choice. He is president of the Minirth Clinic in Richardson, Texas.
