Summary

The sun works hard at producing all the solar power that falls on your home. Most of that energy radiates away from the house. 
It burns its supply of hydrogen, using the power of fusion, to radiate light and heat out into space. The earth soaks up only a small portion of this solar energy. An even smaller part of that solar energy falls on your house. The amount of solar radiation that lands on you house is minuscule in relation to the total amount of solar energy the sun generates. However, that power is still ample enough to power numerous solar power devices in the home. 
The sheer number of solar powered devices for the home is staggering. From solar attic fans to space and pool heating the number of ways to utilize solar energy, appear almost endless. 
Where do you start? This book should provide some of the basic information the homeowner needs to decipher some of the solar powered devices designed for the household. These devices range from items as simple as solar powered lights to complex systems designed to power an entire house. 
The purpose of this book is to provide the average homeowner with the basic information about the various solar devices available. This is not a technical guide. Rather use it as a “discovery resource” to explore the various solar products on the market for the home. It should help you determine how you might best use solar energy to bring the power of the sun into your house.

    "Scandinavia now has its own Virginia Woolf. Few get as close to the human mind as Klougart"—Mari Nymoen Nilsen, VG 
    The English-language debut from one of Denmark's most exciting, celebrated young writers, One of Us Is Sleeping is a haunting novel about loss in all its forms.As she returns home to visit her mother who is dying of cancer, the narrator recounts a brief, intense love affair, as well as the grief and disillusionment that follow its end. The book's striking imagery and magnificent prose underpin its principal theme: the jarring contrast between the recollection of stability, your parents, your childhood home, your love, and the continual endings that we experience throughout our lives. 
    A true-to-life, deeply poetic novel that works in the same vein as Anne Carson, One of Us Is Sleeping has won Klougart countless accolades and award nominations, including the Readers' Book Award, securing her place as a major new voice in world literature. 
    Josefine Klougart has been hailed as one of Denmark's greatest contemporary writers. She is the first Danish author ever to have two of her first three books nominated for the Nordic Council Literature Prize. She's been compared to a range of authors, including Joan Didion, Anne Carson, and Virginia Woolf. 
    Martin Aitken has translated dozens of books from the Danish, including works by Dorthe Nors, Jussi Adler-Olsen, Peter Høeg, and Kim Leine, among others.

    How did you first learn about sex? If you grew up in the 1970s, it may have been from a gleefully lusty tour guide named Xaviera HollanderIn the late 1960s -- that era of sexual chaos, when Playboy Clubs and love-ins were competing for national attention -- a beautiful, intelligent young Dutch secretary named Xaviera de Vries moved to New York, grew swiftly tired of her desk job . . . and soon became the most visible and glamorous madam the city had ever seen. As Xaviera Hollander, she published a shockingly candid account of her life behind the brothel door. The Happy Hooker shot straight to the top of the bestseller lists, sold more than fifteen million copies, and made this enterprising young woman an international phenomenon. Thirty years later, these delightfully explicit tales of the '60s and '70s swingers' scene -- including countless jaw-dropping stories of lesbianism, bondage, fetishism, and more -- remain as titillating as ever, charged with the mix of shrewd observation and uninhibited appetite that made Hollander an irresistible storyteller. The Happy Hooker is a classic: the world's greatest book on the world's oldest profession.
