Holy Cow! - Boze Hadleigh Cover Art

Holy Cow!

Holy Cow! Doggerel, Catnaps, Scapegoats, Foxtrots, and Horse Feathers?Splendid Animal Words and Phrases by Boze Hadleigh

We love animals but insult humans by calling them everything from weasels or pigs to sheep, mice, chickens, sharks, snakes, and bird-brains. Animal epithets, words, and phrases are so widespread we often take them for granted or remain ignorant of the fascinating stories and facts behind them. Spanning the entire animal kingdom, Holy Cow! explains: Why hot dogs are named after canines. Why people talk turkey or go cold turkey. Why curiosity killed the cat, although dogs are more curious about us. Why letting the cat out of the bag originally referred to a duped shopper. What a horse of another color is, what horsefeathers politely alludes to, why a mule is a lady’s slipper, and what horseradish has to do with horses. Why the combination of humans and cows probably led to capitalism its name from Latin for head, as in heads of cows. Why holy cow and sacred cow have almost opposite meanings. Whether people actually chewed the fat or ate crow (and why it’s a crowbar). How a hog became a motorcycle and a chick a young woman. What happens to freeze the balls off a brass monkey. What buck has to do with being naked. Why the birds and the bees. Why a piggy bank and why one feeds the kitty. What lame ducks have to do with U.S. presidents. How red herring came about via activists opposed to fox hunting. Where snake oil, popular in the 1800s and rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, came from. That the proverbial fly in the ointment goes back to the Bible’s Ecclesiastes (10:1). How Swiss watchmakers created teensy-weensy coaches for fleas to pull in flea circuses. And much much! more. Don't be a lame duck and get this book!

Quicklet on Jeannette Walls' The Glass Castle - Katie Prout Cover Art

Quicklet on Jeannette Walls' The Glass Castle

Quicklet on Jeannette Walls' The Glass Castle by Katie Prout

ABOUT THE BOOK When The Glass Castle made the bestseller list and book groups everywhere were featuring it as their headliner, I shied away from the book. As a writer, and an instructor of literature, I tend to be skeptical of the bestseller list. Undoubtedly these are entertaining books, but I usually can't come up with a solid rationale for teaching them to a writing or literature class. So I didn't read The Glass Castle when it was at its most popular. However, when I started teaching memoir writing classes, The Glass Castle came to mind. I decided to give it a try. Reading it, I was surprised at how intense the book was, but also how deeply it resonated with its reader, and how engaging the prose was. I started teaching it to show students how to be courageous in their writing and write with honesty but in a way that pulls in their readers. What I most admired about Jeannette Walls was her ability to be forgiving and compassionate in her telling of the story. MEET THE AUTHOR Born in Port Huron, Michigan, Kathryn Prout has worked as a small town dance teacher, small city nonprofit coordinator, and after school poetry workshop leader for teens. While she's currently busy farming in Ireland, Kathryn always makes sure she has time to read, write, and of course, run. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK The Glass Castle is a poignant memoir about a dysfunctional but lively family, told from the perspective of the second daughter of four children. Jeannette Walls is three years old when the story begins and well into her adult life when it ends. Her parents, Rex and Rose Mary Walls, are troubled people who struggle with their own issues while trying to raise four children. Neither parent can hold down a job for any length of time. They move around with their children until they finally settle in Welch, West Virginia. In Welch, near Rex's family, they live in squalid conditions. From the time Jeannette and her siblings are young, though, their father has grand plans to build the Glass Castle, taking out his blueprints and showing his ornate design of their home. As the kids get older, they lose faith in their father ever building the Glass Castle, but he does teach them to have dreams. Each child escapes to New York City to realize his or her dreams the way their father didn't.

An indicator of health and longevity is the condition of a person’s telomeres, which are protective DNA that exists as cap-like structures at the end of each chromosome. Telomeres have the capacity to accelerate or decelerate the aging process because of their critical role in cellular health. It’s critical to understand how they function within the body and how they respond, for better or worse, to variables including diet, sleep hygiene, exercise, stress, emotions, and environmental toxin exposure. Although some people like to believe that aging is entirely predestined by genetics, science has proven otherwise. Numerous studies have shown that a shift in lifestyle can radically alter the length of people’s “healthspan,” or the period in which they enjoy robust health…   PLEASE NOTE: This is a Summary, Analysis & Review of the book and NOT the original book.   Inside this Summary, Analysis & Review of Elizabeth Blackburn’s and Elissa Epel’s The Telomere Effect by Instaread:   • Overview of the Book • Important People • Key Takeaways • Analysis of Key Takeaways   About the Author With Instaread, you can get the key takeaways and analysis of a book in 15 minutes.

The Husband's Secret

The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty - An Amazing Summary! by Alexander Cooper

The Husband's Secret - An Amazing Summary! The Husband’s Secret is a novel of betrayal, fake love, secrets and back-stabbing drama, written by Liane Moriarty.  It is actually a modern novel about three women, who are involved by the murder case of a young girl, which occurred almost thirty years prior to the story of the novel.  The main protagonist of the novel is a woman named Cecilia Fitzpatrick, who believes that she lives in a perfect life—a life totally under control. However, her picture of perfection in her life is shattered to pieces, when one day, she accidentally finds a mysterious letter. This letter is addressed to her, but the author of the letter is none other than her husband John-Paul.  She should not have found this letter yet, however, it was intended for her to find it after her husband’s death, but, impatient as she is, Cecilia immediately opens the letter and reads it. What she found in that letter will change her life for good; there, her husband John-Paul confesses of killing a young woman. Cecilia is now faced with a choice; either to turn her husband in or to remain quiet and to try to protect the integrity of her family. Upon her discovery, her world is beginning to collapse; she needs to face the truth that her husband is not so perfect, loving and kind as she thought he was. The novel is fabulously written; we have a tension-filled atmosphere, a great story, and characters that will need to revise some of their opinions on certain things and persons.  The author of the novel, Liane Moriarty, wrote four more novels including Three Wishes, The Last Anniversary, What Alice Forgot, and The Hypnotist’s Love Story . Those novels were all successfully published and translated into seven languages. She also wrote Space Brigade , series for children. She lives in Sidney, with her husband, son and daughter.

Self-deception occurs when people look at another person as an objectified problem or threat rather than as a human being.
