    A pair of memoirs about a woman starting her life over as a beekeeper in the Ozarks, from “a latter-day Henry Thoreau with a sense of the absurd” (Chicago Tribune).   Taken together, the “steadily eloquent” national bestseller, A Country Year, and its follow-up, A Book of Bees, a New York Times Notable Book, offer a moving and fascinating chronicle of Sue Hubbell’s seasonal second life as a commercial beekeeper (The Washington Post).   Alone on a small Missouri farm after the end of a thirty-year marriage, Hubbell found a new love—of the winged, buzzing variety. Left with little but the commercial beekeeping and honey-producing business she started with her husband, Hubbell found solace in the natural world, as well as in writing about her experience. In evocative vignettes, she takes readers through the seasonal cycle of her life as a beekeeper, offering exquisitely rendered details of hives, harvests, and honey, while also reflecting on deeper questions. As the New York Times wrote: “The real masterwork that Sue Hubbell has created is her life.”

    The Gratitude Journal 
    How to Keep a Gratitude Journal and Experience Great Improvement of Your Life: 10 Useful Tips 
    We say “thank you” many times a day without actually meaning it. The response has become automatic, expected even, without actually acknowledging the reasons. For American's the dedicated “Thanksgiving Day” has even now become just another holiday to eat to excess and relax without the majority really displaying any thankfulness for the bounty in their lives.  
    Do you have a warm place to sleep? Food? How about a family or friends that care for you? Rather than being thankful for just having the latest tech there are probably plenty of things in your life that you should be thankful for everyday and don't realize. A gratitude journal is a tangible way of always having a reminder about the things you are thankful for in your life. This book intends on giving you both a lesson in gratitude and the tools to create your own journal. So whenever you feel down, turn a page and remember that maybe life isn't so bad.   
    Here is what you will learn after reading this book: 
    -Why living a life of gratitude can make you happier 
    -The science of gratitude 
    -How to include gratitude in your life 
    -How to write a gratitude journal 
    -Will a journal work for me?

    A special edition of the “shocking” #1 New York Times bestseller with an exclusive new preface by the author (Los Angeles Times).   When Christina Crawford’s harrowing chronicle of child abuse was first published in 1978, it brought global attention to the previously closeted subject. It also shed light on the guarded world of Hollywood and stripped away the façade of Christina’s relentless, alcoholic abuser: her adoptive mother, movie star Joan Crawford.   Christina was a young girl shown off to the world as a fortunate little princess. But at home, her lonely, controlling, even ruthless mother made her life a nightmare. A fierce battle of wills, their relationship could be characterized as an ultimately successful, for Christina, struggle for independence. She endured and survived, becoming the voice of so many other victims who suffered in silence, and giving them the courage to forge a productive life out of chaos.   This ebook edition features an exclusive new preface by the author, plus rare photographs from her personal collection and one hundred pages of revealing material not found in the original manuscript.

    ‘A story can lure us into gaps and spaces that feel sacred in their silence.’ —Kim Scott
    
    In The Best Australian Stories 2013, Kim Scott assembles the most exceptional short fiction of the last year and invites readers to build ‘a rare and intimate relationship’ with these talented writers, one that is ‘essential to storytelling in print, whether on paper or screen.’
    
    These stories conjure disparate moods, from delight to melancholy. A family Christmas lays bare a relationship grown cold. A father pursues the art of the birdcall in an effort to speak his son’s language. A cat becomes a conduit for a neighbour’s true feelings while Brisbane floods. Striking new voices blend seamlessly with those of celebrated storytellers to form a collection that will leave an indelible impression long after the last word is read.
