Summary

Escape to the frost-sparkling Yorkshire Dales for some festive fun under the mistletoe! A saucy comedy-romance with more than a sprinkle of Christmas spice – this will lift your spirits!
 
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas for costume shop owner Becky Finn. Leaving London to move back home to the twinkly rural village of Egglethwaite, she plans to build a new life for herself with fiancé, Cole.
 
Keen to raise funds for the struggling village hall she loved as a child, Becky finds herself at the head of a colourful group aiming to revive the Egglethwaite Christmas pantomime. But when that festive feeling sets in, she discovers there's more to panto than innuendo and slapped thighs.
 
Falling in love was not in the script! But as opening night grows closer, she starts to wonder if the panto will ever make it to the stage and, with handsome co-star Marcus on the scene, if she has chosen her right leading man...
 
The perfect stocking-filler gift!
 
'A rollicking romantic read!' Phillipa Ashley

    “Vince Lombardi—who relished his undergraduate studies in philosophy—would have loved this book.” —Booklist  Football and Philosophy: Going Deep investigates many of the issues surrounding the nation’s biggest sport. From a review of the flaws of the Bowl Championship Series, to a study of the violence inherent in the game, to an examination of Vince Lombardi’s views on winning, to the problems created by the development of instant replay, the essays in this collection tackle the moral and philosophical principles behind gridiron competition. The result is an insightful, humorous, and original book that will engage all fans of the game.   “Insightful and informative, as well as provocative and entertaining.” —Charles Taliaferro, author of Consciousness and the Mind of God

    In the history of mankind, sports occupy a very centre place in defining the era and cultures of a concerned time period. In ancient times, several sports sprouted up that have still existed, and some still keep themselves active. The Olympics has been with us for the last 3 millennia ever since Greeks ran the plain farms to engage the invading Persians, what we call as the battle of Marathon from which ‘marathon’ itself got invented. In fact, nearly every sport we see today has had some kind of old connection with it. Soccer is a medieval era sport, cricket got invented during Victorian times, baseball after the civil war in America ended and not to forget, golf that has possible Roman origins. 
    Considering the importance of all sorts of sports that have existed since antiquity, one such game that deserves our attention is none other than basketball. Basketball can very much be easily compared with its contemporary sport of soccer in regards to its following in the international arena and the nature of the game that is very similar to football. And yet, basketball remains one of the most overlooked sports in our modern times, in spite of its huge following. Official data suggests not less than 250 million people playing basketball every day spread across five continents. If that wasn’t enough then the official data by NBA and its partners nearly doubles that figure if thousands of schools, colleges and institutes that hold their own championships the world over are included in the aggregate. 
    Basketball is indeed a definitive concept and deserves its own account of history. From its humble beginnings in Springfield College of Massachusetts, it went on to cover a dynamic journey to rival soccer in not more than a hundred years since its inception.

    With its three-hour-long contests, 162-game seasons, and countless measurable variables, baseball is a sport which lends itself to self-reflection and obsessive analysis. It's a thinking game. It's also a shifting game. Nowhere is this more evident than in the statistical revolution which has swept through the pastime in recent years, bringing metrics like WAR, OPS, and BABIP into front offices and living rooms alike.So what's on the horizon for a game that is constantly evolving? Positioned at the crossroads of sabermetrics and cognitive science, The Shift alters the trajectory of both traditional and analytics-based baseball thought. With a background in clinical psychology as well as experience in major league front offices, Baseball Prospectus's Russell Carleton illuminates advanced statistics and challenges cultural assumptions, demonstrating along the way that data and logic need not be at odds with the human elements of baseball—in fact, they're inextricably intertwined.Covering topics ranging from infield shifts to paradigm shifts, Carleton writes with verve, honesty, and an engaging style, inviting all those who love the game to examine it deeply and maybe a little differently.Foreword by Jeff Passan

    Chuck Taylor All Star - The True...

    The true story of a man, a company, a sport, and a nation.   In 1921, Converse hired 20-year-old Chuck Taylor as a salesman, sparking a nearly 50-year career that defined the Converse All Star basketball shoe. Although his name is on the label of the legendary All Stars, which have been worn by hundreds of millions, little is known about the man behind the name. For this biography, Abe Aamidor went on a three-year quest to learn the true story of Chuck Taylor. The search took him across the country, tracking down leads, separating fact from fiction, and discovering that the truth—warts and all—was much more interesting than the myth. Chuck Taylor was a basketball player who also served as a wartime coach with the US Army Air Forces and organized thousands of high school and college basketball clinics. He was a true “ambassador of basketball” in Europe and South America as well as all over the United States. And he was, to be sure, a consummate marketing genius who was inducted into the Sporting Goods Hall of Fame and the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.   “A fascinating study on a pioneer . . . and an instructive look at the roots of a billion-dollar industry.” —American Way magazine

    The most RJ Young knew about guns was that they could get him killed. Until, recently married to a white woman and in desperate need of a way to relate to his gun-loving father-in-law, Charles, Young does the unimaginable: He accepts Charles's gift of a Glock.Despite, or because of, the racial rage and fear he experiences among white gun owners ("Ain't you supposed to be shooting a basketball?"), Young determines to get good, really good, with a gun. Let It Bang is the compelling story of the author's unexpected obsession — he eventually becomes an NRA-certified pistol instructor — and of his deep dive into the heart of America's gun culture: what he sees as the domino effect of white fear, white violence, black fear, rinse, repeat.Young's original reporting on shadow industries like US Law Shield, which insures and defends people who report having shot someone in self-defense, and on the newly formed National African American Gun Association, gives powerful insight into the dynamic. Through indelible profiles, Young brings us up to the current rocketing rise in gun ownership among black Americans, most notably women.
