Stuck on Stupid or Stuck in Stupid: (The 25 mistakes women make that prevent them from attracting and keeping true love) Is the partner book to: Think Like a Man...and here’s a thought: Start Acting Like a Man (The 25 mistakes men make that prevent them from finding and keeping true love) I have been pondering whether or not to write a relationship book for women for quite some time. After the release of my first novelTorn Between 2 Brothas and my first relationship book Think Like A Man, I received numerous e-mails and phone calls from women asking that I write a relationship book for them. Initially, I was taken aback because I never saw myself as a relationship guru. The irony is that I’ve always been the girlfriend that everyone comes to when it comes to relationships. I don’t think that it is because I have had the best relationships when it comes to men. Believe me; I have had a few that I care not to remember. I must admit, I kissed a few frogs before I found my Prince Charming. However, I do think that it is because I have always been optimistic and objective when it comes to love. Even when I have been in the midst of a tumultuous relationship, I have always been able to find my center, recognize my stupidity, and if not in that moment...very soon afterwards, get out of my circumstance. Afterwards, I brush myself off, evaluate the lesson learned and move on (something many women have trouble doing). Also, I try not to punish the next man that enters my life for the mistakes the previous guy made (huge mistake). For the last ten plus years, I have been paying close attention to the behavior of women and trying desperately to get a grip on why we continue to behave so stupidly when it comes to men. Is it that we just don’t know? Or is it that we do know, but we choose to stay stuck in/on stupid? You’ll have to answer these questions for yourself. Also, I interviewed men and asked them what things really bother them about women when it comes to relationships. Stuck on Stupid includes some of the most voiced concerns. After reading this book, ask your mate to read it and highlight the areas he feels you need improvement. I think you’ll be surprised. Don’t worry, your mate won’t highlight the whole book ?. Whenever you’re in a relationship you have to be willing to grow and make changes. It’s part of the process. Love requires it. Nevertheless, I hope that by the end of this book you will have gained some insight about your behavior and begin to make the necessary adjustments in your life to allow you to experience REAL love. Blessings, Linda

Lauren Gray loves everything about Adam Wilson, from his zest for life to his roguish good looks and his wild, wicked ways in bed. She can’t, however, deny that his absence during the week poses a problem for her, but as a commercial pilot, he spends his weekdays flying. Nor can she deny that while she loves their frantic lovemaking sessions, there are times when she’d like to shift things into slow gear. When she discovers Adam home during the weekday, draped in darkness and asleep in his bed, she isn’t about to question her good fortune. She slips between the sheets with him and attributes his achingly gentle touch and soft, sensuous kisses to his mellow state. Except come morning she realizes that it wasn’t Adam who was searing her body with his slow, sultry lovemaking, it was his brother Garret—a race car driver who, unlike Adam, is home during the week and uses a gentle hand in the bedroom. Lauren can’t help but think that separately the brothers are amazing, but a combination of the two makes the perfect package. And when this good girl realizes she’s torn between two brothers it has her thinking about breaking all the rules…

Think Like a Man...and here’s a thought: Start Acting Like a Man The 25 mistakes men make that prevent them from finding and keeping true love This is the perfect companion book to Steve Harvey’s book Act Like a Lady. There are hundreds of books written for women on how to find a man. Yet, very few books that address the critical things that men do or don’t do that prevent relationships from thriving and going to the next level. One of my personal goals is to promote marriage, and to help people stay in love. When Steve Harvey wrote the book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, millions of women flocked to purchase a book that was going to show them how to get a man. To be perfectly honest with you, I didn’t realize the magnitude of how naive we were as women when it came to men. However, I was equally disturbed by the fact that no one was addressing what men needed to do to rectify this relationship thing. Relationships don’t simply fail because of women; men play a vital role too. I could have easily written one hundred mistakes that men make, but I chose to focus on the twenty-five mistakes that I hear repeatedly from married and single women. It is my hope, that this book will cultivate a more balanced conversation between men and women. More importantly, that this book will shed some light for men on their own relationships and that they will begin to take the necessary steps to foster and create the ultimate love.

Richard Rich rose from 16th century landed gentry to become the Lord Chancellor of England. His absolute loyalty was to the reigning monarchs he served: King Henry VIII, King Edward VI, Queen Mary I and Queen Elizabeth I. All others, except his family, were expendable. His fellow courtiers: Sir Thomas More, Lord Chamberlain Thomas Cromwell, Archbishop Thomas Cranmer among others, wished to thwart the desires of the monarch. They lost their lives. When members of the powerful Percy, Seymour, Dudley and Howard families moved to wrest power from the monarchs, many of them lost their heads. Richard 1st Baron Rich of Leighs was instrumental in protecting all of the monarchs from treason wherever he found it. Baron Rich is now 71 years old and nearing death at his Rochford manor. His eldest daughter, the faithful Joan, has spent her life caring for the extensive Rich estates and her 16 siblings. She convinces Rich to speak to her of his life's memories. She knows many notable figures from his years in power are writing memoirs and histories of the time and wants to record her father's own words. Rich agrees to talk but his words soon discomfort Joan, especially his dismissal of the turmoil caused by Cranmer's Reformation of the English Church that Rich aided as Lord Chancellor. Joan has worked closely with her father for the past 31 years and has substantial knowledge of the history she hears him reinventing. She records his words and her own. This novel is based on extensive research into the life of Richard Rich, of the man and his impact on the era. It is a tale that has never been told in its entirety until now.

Author: Jenny Jochens
Publisher: University of Pennsylvania Press
Working from the Poetic Edda, the Prose Edda, and Old Norse prose narratives and laws, Jenny Jochens argues for an underlying cultural continuum of a pagan pantheon and a set of heroic figures shared by the Germanic tribes in Europe, Britain, Scandinavia, and Iceland from A.D. 500 to 1500. Old Norse Images of Women explores the female half of this legacy, which involves images both divine and human. In a society marked by sharp gender divisions, women were frequently portrayed as one of four conventional types. The warrior woman was exemplified by the valkyrie, sheildmaiden, or maiden king. The wise woman was a prophetess or sorceress. The avenger is best seen in Gudrun, whose focus of revenge shifted from husband to brothers. Last, there were the whetters or inciters, who appear both in the Continental setting as Brynhildr and as ubiquitous figures in medieval Icelandic literature, ranging from Norwegian queens to humble milkmaids.

A dazzling, spellbinding novel set in a mythical Jewish community by the acclaimed author of the New York Times Notable Book The Book of Mischief It's the late 1960s. The Pinch, once a thriving Jewish community centered on North Main Street in Memphis, has been reduced to a single tenant. Lenny Sklarew awaits the draft by peddling drugs and shelving books—until he learns he is a character in a book about the rise and fall of this very Pinch. Muni Pinsker, who authored the book in an enchanted day containing years, arrived in the neighborhood at its height and was smitten by an alluring tightrope walker.

Steve Stern interweaves these tales with an ingenious structure that merges past with present, and his wildly inventive fabulism surpasses everything he's done before. Together, these intersecting stories transform the real-world experience of Lenny, whose fate determines the future of the Pinch, in this brilliant, unforgettable novel.
