Summary

Whedbee's collections of legends and folklore have become regional classics. The continuing popularity of these books stems from the author's intimate knowledge of the places, people, and events of which he writes. He gathers the mysteries, tales, legends, and lore that have been handed down for generations on the North Carolina coast and recounts them with a sensitivity for tradition that makes him a master at what he does.
 
For decades, the folk tales of Charles Harry Whedbee have been available wherever you care to look on the Outer Banks. Their popularity has transcended Whedbee's loyal readership among North Carolinians and visitors from the Northeast and the Midwest.
 
Charles Harry Whedbee was an elected judge in his native Greenville, North Carolina, for thirty-plus years, but his favorite place was the Outer Banks, Nags Head in particular. Whedbee was the author of five folklore collections. He died in 1990.

    This encapsulating, easy to read 232 page six part book entitled “The Law of Attraction” commences by posing the question, what is the law of attraction? Followed by an explanation of how and why it works for some people and not others. This book infers that those who have manged to master and apply the laws of attraction, do so successfully, while other will continue to fail for a variety of reasons.
    
     
    Intriguingly, “The Law of Attraction” offers simple strategies which can be used to get what we want, Interestingly there is a caveat, which suggests that we often attract what we don’t want, hence the need to engage in reflective introspective strategies, which empowers us to assess the consequences of these attractions. Additionally, this book addresses the relevance of conflicting and comparative thought processes, rituals related manifestations. There’s also a reminder that our thoughts eventually become things, hence the importance of self-reflection, which encourages readers to observe how their own thoughts, can influence their behaviours. When discussing our professional aspirations, “The Law of Attraction” deduces that our careers are an intricate element of our spiritual lives, hence the focus on destructive and constructive thinking, which contrary to popular opinion, implies a career is more than just a job.
    
     
    With regards to relationships, “The Law of Attraction” notes that psychologists paint a negative view of romantic love, while appreciating that attraction to higher levels of awareness intensifies the underlying vibration of love which is the glue that holds many relationship together.
    
     
    “The Law of Attraction” also takes into consideration mind and body issues, which stress the importance of holistic health by encouraging readers to incorporate nutrition, exercise, yoga and meditation as part of their developmental journey.
    
     
    Most importantly, “The Law of Attraction” presents a brief outline of some the most commonly used tools by Law of Attraction practitioners, such as Dream boards, Visual Affirmations, Positive Lists, Diary Entries, Dream Checks, and Painting. Think Doctor Publications encourage readers to familiarise themselves with these tools, to esnure they reap the excellent rewards espoused by the Law of Attraction.

    New York Times Bestseller 
    A collection of essays spanning politics, criticism, and feminism from one of the most-watched young cultural observers of her generation, Roxane Gay. 
    “Pink is my favorite color. I used to say my favorite color was black to be cool, but it is pink—all shades of pink. If I have an accessory, it is probably pink. I read Vogue, and I’m not doing it ironically, though it might seem that way. I once live-tweeted the September issue.” 
    In these funny and insightful essays, Roxane Gay takes us through the journey of her evolution as a woman (Sweet Valley High) of color (The Help) while also taking readers on a ride through culture of the last few years (Girls, Django in Chains) and commenting on the state of feminism today (abortion, Chris Brown). The portrait that emerges is not only one of an incredibly insightful woman continually growing to understand herself and our society, but also one of our culture. 
    Bad Feminist is a sharp, funny, and spot-on look at the ways in which the culture we consume becomes who we are, and an inspiring call-to-arms of all the ways we still need to do better.

    Dramatic true stories of New England maritime history, with photos.   Large, wooden-hulled schooners graced the seas of coastal Maine for more than a century as vessels of trade and commerce. With the advent of steam-powered craft, however, these elegant four-, five-, or six-masted wooden ships became obsolete and vanished from the harbors and horizons.   The Edward Lawrence, the last of the six-masters, became her own funeral pyre in Portland Harbor, burning to ash before everyone’s eyes. The Carroll A. Deering washed ashore with no trace of her crew, empty as a ghost ship except for three cats and a pot of pea soup still cooking on the stove. In this testament to the beauty of the Maine coastal region, maritime history enthusiast Ingrid Grenon tells the story of these magnificent relics of the bygone Age of Sail and celebrates the people who devoted their lives to the sea.
