Whatever would we do without Uu? “The Importance of Being Uu” by Lori Wisniewski
This fun children’s book shows the importance of the letter Uu. Between us, just think of all the words that urgently depend on it!
Letter Uu is unhappy. Always near the end of the alphabet and the very last of the vowels, she feels unworthy being one of the 26 letters of the alphabet. Uu decides to leave her 25 friends and get a job where she could make more of a difference in a child’s life. Utterly exhausted, Uu falls into a deep sleep, in which her letter friends remind her why she is so useful and of her important role in the universe of reading.
Uu finds contentment as she realizes her own unique and unusual talents, and she finally comes to understand The Importance of Being Uu.

In the hilarious sequel to the bestselling “momoir” This Little Piggy Went to the Liquor Store, A.K. Turner returns with the mayhem of motherhood.

Inspirational poetry expresses author’s fight against cancer in “Teosinte” by Karen Chertok
Karen Chertok merges the symbolism in Regina Szczypiorski’s art based on the seven days and nights of the Mayan Underworld, with her own struggles facing cancer in her book of poetry and journals titled Teosinte.
“After a less than ideal childhood and a difficult adult life, being hit with cancer did not make sense to me. I knew as soon as I was diagnosed I would write a book. My oldest son asked me if I thought about reading some self-help/survivor stories and I replied to him, ‘No, I’m writing one.’ That was Christmas Day 2010.”
Read the inspirational words emerging from the author’s diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. The book was written in the form of poetry and journals that culminate with a new myth: one that invokes the theme of the phoenix across cultures, in which the bird has landed, builds a nest, sees it burn, and then flies off toward life’s next journey. The book will be meaningful to anyone who has survived the fire and wants a fresh start.

“The Key Class: The Keys To Job Search Success” by John J. Daly Jr. has a live book signing in Santa Barbara, California 13 November 2013, 6 p.m. at The Granada Bookstore.
Etiquette as a Winning Formula for Job Search Success? Really?
When John Daly explains to people that the reason they aren’t successful in their job search is because they don’t understand business and personal etiquette, he’s often met with, “You mean that stuffy, eat-with-the-right-fork stuff?”
Far from it. Daly encourages people to think of job hunting as a game. Job hunting depends on knowing the rules of the game. Like playing football, you need to know all the rules, particularly the ones you don’t want to break, such as being out-of-bounds.
The point of the game in job searching and in life is to know how to be comfortable and make others comfortable with you in every situation. And that’s why etiquette!
So, why are so many people lacking in an understanding of the rules? Daly’s response is simple: No one has ever taught them!

Creationism vs. Evolution: Presenting a new alternative! in “Man and His Planet: An Unauthorized History” by James E. Strickling.
Man and His Planet: An Unauthorized History will change the way you view the world without contradicting your religious convictions. You will walk away with a new perception of earth’s ancient past.
Since Charles Darwin first presented his ideas on evolution, the Darwinism/Creationism controversy has raged unabated. Neither side is willing to yield one iota to the other. But a truly objective analysis of each side’s arguments reveals that both are wrong! This unbiased book looks at the creationism-evolution controversy and offers new insight on the debate. It exposes the fallacies of each side’s arguments and comes up with an extraordinary alternative.
It also scrutinizes many mysterious ancient texts, providing an astonishing picture of earth’s history. Detailed at length are natural electrical phenomena occurring in antiquity and recorded in ancient documents, including the Bible. Such observations are not obvious to the typical anthropologist or historian. But thanks to the author’s electrical engineering background and an unfettered perspective, he sheds surprising new light on a number of ancient texts – texts describing phenomena that cannot More >
