It was a one-in-a-million chance. A bag crammed with cash comes tumbling out of the air and lands right at Damian's feet. Suddenly the Cunningham brothers are rich. Very rich. They can buy anything they want. There's just one problem -- they have only seventeen days to spend all the money before it becomes worthless. And the crooks who stole the cash in the first place are closing in -- fast. A funny, brilliantly clever and utterly thrilling debut novel that is, quite simply, unforgettable.

Argues that the two popular women's magazines were pivotal in the combining of gender and commercialism at the turn of the century, and that publishers and advertisers conspired to create both a gendered commercial discourse and a commercial gender discourse for both men and women.

This scholarly work deals specifically with the important changes in popular journalism in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. A pioneering study in the history of journalism, it focuses on the New Journalism in Britain, which is central in the overall history of the modern press. The essays provide a careful historical analysis of the transformation that occurred, such as the greater use of illustrations and photographs, headlines and crossheads, and increased coverage of human interest subjects. The book offers a wealth of new information based on original research, as well as lively interpretive commentary on the nature of change in modern journalism.
Millions of Cats is a picture book which won the Newbery Honor award in 1929. It is about an old man and an old woman who were very lonely. They decided to get a cat, but when the old man went out searching, he found not one cat, but millions and billions and trillions of cats! How the old couple came to have just one cat to call their own is a classic tale that has been loved for generations.
"One little snowflake falls on my nose. It makes me shiver from my head to my toes." A little girl plays outside on a cold winter day, counting each snowflake as it falls softly to the ground. Bundled in her warmest snowsuit, she savors the snow, tasting each flake as it falls on her tongue, and makes snow angels. Simple rhyming text captures the joy of a winter afternoon while teaching basic counting skills. Exuberant pastel illustrations invite young readers to join the fun.
Omnipotence for the Millions is best described as a weeping man's bedroom farce, a tale of infuriatingly ineluctable agape and abortive misanthropy, of a love-hate triangle of rivalrous comrades and wives, of human intersubjectivity conceived as a world wherein everyone is constantly enacting exasperatingly ambiguous atrocities on everyone else and everyone's kind of pissed off about it probably but nobody's quite sure. It is the story of a certain Mr. Smithers and his close associate and rival Mr. Smith, and their unfortunate intertwining in the fast-paced back-slappingly fulfilling industry of late night self-help infomercial production. Smithers’ mercy-begging detestation of his putative buddy is, it would seem, no match for the latter's obliviously cheerful ability to just not get it. At various points Smithers is called upon to serve not only as Smith's best friend, his employer, his wife’s lover, his business partner and his archrival, but also as his teacher (in a formal classroom setting) and as his valet. The two men, like all two men, are tacitly struggling for the same quantum of virtual space--job, money, status, women, existential authenticity, all of which are in limited supply. And yet, by dint of some sadistically neutral cosmic conspiracy, they're forced to stand around talking to each other all the time. The subject of this book, broadly speaking, is that old-time sideshow favorite formerly known as The Human Condition, in this case construed as an elaboration of what's so bad about ever having to be in the same room with anyone else.
Banner-carrying Salvation Army marchers, stone-silent Quakers, jumpy Midwestern revivalists, closed-fellowship Brethren, and Prayer-book Anglicans all made up the mixed multitude sent to the Middle Kingdom by the China Inland Mission (CIM). In China's Millions, the newest volume of the acclaimed Studies in the History of Christian Missions series, veteran historian Alvyn Austin crafts a compelling narrative of the sprawling history of the China Inland Mission. Austin explores two questions: How did British evangelicalism feed into American fundamentalism, eventually becoming global Protestantism, and how did evangelical Christianity become Chinese? Along the way he introduces readers to a remarkable array of sights, from the visionary, charismatic sect-leader Pastor Hsi, to the wordless book, a missionary teaching device that fit perfectly with Chinese color cosmology, to the opium-soaked aftermath of the North China Famine of 1877-79. Clear, readable, and well researched, China's Millions digs deeply into the Chinese and Western past to tell a story that no one would think to tell, the strange yet hopeful result of two cultures colliding.

“Love had been given and taken and now…it had been stolen. No one steals from a thief—especially from me—and I will defend what’s mine until my dying breath. It’s not a question of what I’m willing to sacrifice but who to deserve her…” Once upon a time, I stupidly believed if I could make Elder fall for me, everything would be perfect. Now, I’m missing, and he’s hunting, and everything is far from our happily ever after. He gave me his heart, and I gave him my promise, but true love isn’t sacred to others. War is coming, disaster is brewing, and I’m not going down without a fight. Elder is mine. I am his. And no one can keep us apart. The fifth and final book in the USA Today Bestselling Romance
Sean Thomas was single, thirty-seven and, by his own admission, just 'a tiny bit desperate' to meet the woman of his dreams, when he was asked by a men's magazine to do a feature on Internet dating. Millions of Women Are Waiting to Meet You is a poignant, hilarious and gloriously indiscreet diary of the dates, good and bad. There was the Chinese girl who stalked him, the Welsh girl who dumped him, the vivacious young woman who turned out to be rather too pro, and then there was someone he fell in love with. If you want to know what men think about sex, read this book. Read it too if you believe that love and romance could be a click away, waiting in that intriguing, twilight world of the Internet.
