"...read it, love it, recommend it..."


George Mahood had a nice, easy, comfortable life. He had a job, a house, a wife and kids. But something was missing. He was stuck in a routine of working, changing nappies and cleaning up cat sick. He felt like he was missing out on a lot of what the world had to offer.

He then discovered that it was Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day. The day after that was National Curmudgeon Day, and the day after that was Inane Answering Machine Message Day. In fact, the calendar is FULL of these quirky, weird and wonderful events. He realised that somebody somewhere had created these holidays, believing that they were important enough to warrant their own official day. Surely he should therefore be more appreciative of their existence? So he decided to try and celebrate them all. As you do. He hoped that at the end of the challenge he would be transformed into a happier, more intelligent and more content person.

Follow George on his hilarious, life changing adventure as he tries to balance his normal life with a wealth of new experiences, people, facts and ridiculous situations. It's a rip-roaring, life-affirming, roller-coaster of a ride, where every day is a holiday.

DESCRIPTION:

"The division's expendables." That's what one division commander called the Ninth Cavalry Blue platoons during the Vietnam War. The Blues, as they were called, were perpetually understrength and considered to be acceptable losses in hopeless situations--but their amazingly successful record proved otherwise.



A firsthand account of mortal combat with the Ninth Cavalry, Flashing Saber is the remarkable story of the brave men who served in the First Air Cavalry Division's reconnaissance squadron. Included is an account of an air-ground raid that overran a regimental command post and killed more high-ranking enemy officers than any similar engagement of the war.



The story begins when a teenager, an Eagle Scout and West Point Prep School student, goes to Vietnam in 1965. Motivated by patriotism and the desire to see combat firsthand, Brennan volunteers for front line duty and spends years as an artillery forward observer and infantryman. Promoted to sergeant and then to lieutenant, Brennan participates in hundreds of assault landings.



An expansion and careful reworking of his previous work, Brennan's War, published in 1985, and in the vein of classic memoirs by Johnnie Clark and Frederick Downs, Flashing Saberis a harrowing firsthand account of life and death in war, one filled with breathtaking details about a renowned unit.

DESCRIPTION:

Fans of Colm Tóibín will love this book!

Forced to abandon his name, his country and the woman he loves, Frank Kelleher vows to one day return. But what awaits him when he does?

Guilty of a crime he didn't commit, IRA soldier Frank Kelleher flees through the streets of war-torn Ireland with both the British and the Irish Republican Army trying to put a bullet in his head. He makes his way to America under an assumed name and with a forged passport, as the war in Ireland rages on. Settling in a new land, he finds he can't let go of his past. Haunted by the fiancée he was forced to leave behind, by the deaths of three friends at his own hand, and by the country he was forced to abandon, Frank struggles to make his way in 1920s New York.


As much as he can't let go of Ireland, he finds that Ireland can't let go of him--and his past has a way of finding him, thousands of miles and an ocean away. He dreams of going home, but knows that it could get him killed. Then an anonymous letter brings news about his fiancée Kathleen and he realizes that he no longer has a choice. A cease-fire is declared and Frank sails home with dreams of finding Kathleen, putting his past behind him, and starting a new life.


When he arrives, he learns that the Ireland he was hoping to find--a united people finally free--was only a dream. With British soldiers withdrawing, long-standing feuds resurface, and Ireland is pushed to the brink of civil war. As tensions mount, he also learns that his sins will not be easily forgiven, and that he and Kathleen will never be safe until he clears his name.
If the looming war doesn't kill him, trying to right the wrongs of his past just might.

DESCRIPTION:

A rollicking, funny chick lit mystery/adventure, full of fun and light romance.
Falling is extra hard on tall people, like Rhonda Hamilton: the bone breakage, the bruises, the ignominy of it all. And Rhonda's falling, hard. First, how in the heck can the latest novel published by a nationally bestselling author be a close twin to the manuscript Rhonda has just finished writing and has barely started marketing to agents? Plus, why is Dad suddenly acting so odd: storing milk in the garage and throwing away Rhonda's clothes?
Some goofy roller derby girls add a bludgeon of crazy to Rhonda's hunt for the book thief, and two drool-worthy guys offer to help with Dad--guys Rhonda would gladly fall for, if her life weren't careening madly between Dad's bizarre antics, some treacherous derby bouts, a wild burlesque fundraiser, and the odd mudslide and house demolition. Only one thing is sure: if she wants to nail the wily plagiarist and keep Dad safe, Rhonda had better stay up on her skates to avoid a very big fall.

The Sisterhood tells the story of what becomes possible when intelligence and hope are channeled into an outrageous mission.

To survive, the women, led by Chief Security Officer Tonia Rawlings, must fight against unseen forces. Battling across a public stage of media coverage and Wall Street, the women rush against all odds to outwit their foes – even as they execute the final stage of Vivian's secret plan.

As their enemies draw near, the women risk everything, testing the bonds of faith, marriage and friendship. Along the way, they discover awful truths, make strange alliances and learn why they are the most dangerous women the world has ever seen.

Excerpt--

"Why did you tell everyone we areengaged, Mr. Weston?"
He continued to stare out the windowinto the dark night. Cassie waited, hands clasped on her lap where she sat onthe settee beside the window. He lifted the glass of scotch he held, pressedthe edge against his lower lip and swallowed. The slide of his Adam's appledrew her gaze. Her mouth suddenly went dry. She swallowed.
He lowered the glass. "I won't boreyou with the details."
"Bore me."
"I'm in need of a wife."
"Get a girlfriend, propose to her."
"I had planned to do just that here atthis very party, in fact. But that's no longer an option." He took a deepbreath. "Ms. Adams, could I interest you in a temporary position?"
"You want me to work for you?"
He nodded. "Yes. My grandfather'shealth isn't good."
He didn't need to elaborate. She'dwitnessed the old man's frailty.
"I would do anything to bring joy tohis final days," he said.
"You want me to plan another party?"
He gave a low laugh, but it didn'tring with light-heartedness. "No, he's had enough excitement. He needs torelax, to know that his legacy is safe."
"I'm not a nurse."
"He has a nurse. He needs an heir, agreat-grandson."
Whoa! Cassie stood. "Whatever you'rethinking, forget it." Who exactly was he expecting to produce this heir? Andshe didn't want to think about who would sire the child. She shook her head."You've got the wrong girl."
He turned. "You misunderstand. I'm sureone day I'll have a wife and children." He set his glass on the side table,then took two steps and stopped six inches in front of her. An unnerving heatblossomed in her chest and a flutter of butterflies flitted in her belly.
"He doesn't have long. I'm asking ifyou will pretend to be my wife for the few days he has left with us."
