Explore the captivating myths of the Greek gods and heroes!  Although the Greek gods and goddesses were powerful immortal beings, they were in many ways still very like the humans who worshiped them.

Best-known as Glee’s sharp-tongued Sue Sylvester, Jane Lynch’s on-screen persona is someone that many love to hate. But when she’s not prowling the corridors in Sue’s shiny tracksuit, who is the real Jane Lynch and how did this Golden Globe and Emmy winner learn to channel such delicious nastiness? This is no typical Hollywood memoir of torment, grief, regret and plastic surgery. It’s a simple but candid story of how a girl from Chicago came to Hollywood, overcame her demons, and finally hit the big time. Taking a good, hard look at herself, Lynch reveals that she and Sue Sylvester actually aren’t all that different. At times in her life she ‘was a real pain in the ass’. ‘I was an anxiety-stricken kid with a big, scary secret.’ How difficult it is to imagine this funny, bright, intelligent woman hitting rock bottom, but she is frank about her self-loathing during those years and paints a vivid picture of drunken nights, angry tirades and a person with no friends. In short, she was a real-life Sue Sylvester.Yet this very same woman has starred in string of great, fun movies, including Talladega Nights, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Role Models and Julie and Julia, with actors such as Steve Carrell, Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd and Meryl Streep. With her impeccable comic timing and quick wit, she has transformed what was originally a guest part on Glee into one of the programme’s most central and defining characters, and has won several awards for doing so. Lynch relates the story of her comedy career in a voice that is modest, hilarious and endlessly entertaining, even though her own life hasn’t always been such a laugh. 1. Language: English.

Alive in the Rose City: Dean Drake Mystery Seri...

From award-winning literary criminologist and bestselling crime novelist R. Barri Flowers, author of the acclaimed Dean Drake hard-boiled audio mystery Dead in the Rose City, comes the much-anticipated sequel, Alive in the Rose City (Dean Drake Mysteries, Book 2).  Dean Jeremy Drake, a six-five, biracial private eye, nicknamed D.J., is once again up to his neck in danger, deception, and murder as he works three cases in Portland, Oregon, in the mid-1990s.  The former Police Bureau homicide detective reluctantly agrees to be the bodyguard for a gorgeous lady named Bailey Carlyle, who claims to be on the run from her abusive boyfriend. When the boyfriend turns up dead and is identified as running a high-end call girl operation, the authorities point the finger at Bailey as a leading suspect in his murder, labeling her a jealous and vindictive prostitute. As he is seemingly her alibi, Drake works to prove Bailey’s innocence or guilt, possibly to his own detriment.  He also looks into the alleged suicide of former gang member, Liam Henriquez, on behalf of his grief-stricken grandmother, who insists he would never have taken his own life. The police think otherwise, attributing the death to either depression or issues related to his old life.  Lastly, Drake searches for a missing college student, Olivia McNamara, who is presumed dead by the police after disappearing without a trace months ago. Only her mother and stepfather believe she is still alive and hire Drake to try and prove it.  Packing a .40 caliber Glock, along with sharp detective skills, raw nerve, and gut instincts, Drake follows the clues wherever they may lead with a never-quit attitude, in spite of the obstacles and peril that he faces the closer he gets to solving the cases.  For fans of Dead in the Rose City, PI Dean Drake will be equally entertaining in Alive in the Rose City.  Bonus material include a compl 1.

Life is hard in the poverty-stricken village of Rabylon, where rabbits work every day from sunup to sundown, earning just enough carrots to survive - except for Mayor Monty Cottonsworth III, who lives in the lap of luxury as his villagers starve. Twin bunnies Remy and Rhea, fed up with working so long and so hard with nothing to show for it, desperately desire a better life, but don't know how to achieve it. Just when they are about to give up hope, they are inspired by the story of a mythical carrot paradise that may exist on the other side of a big, green hill outside of their village. Now they face the most difficult decision they've ever had to make: Do they "play it safe" by staying in Rabylon and settle for a life of lack, loss, and limitation? Or do they risk it all - up to and including their lives - on the chance that out there somewhere is a life worth dying for? Breaking Away: Book One of the Rabylon Series is the first book by Manifestation Machine founder and acclaimed anti-hero Cory Groshek. Following in the footsteps of classics like The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and drawing comparisons to acclaimed novels Animal Farm and Watership Down, this timeless children's tale is not only highly entertaining, but highly educational as well, with the stated aim of teaching children and parents alike the value of dreaming big, taking risks, trusting their gut, and choosing faith over fear in everything they do. If you or your child is a fan of action-adventure fantasy series like The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, or Harry Potter, then you and they will absolutely love the Rabylon series. And it is Cory Groshek's hope that, by the time you are finished listening to it, you will come to know what he learned through the writing of this enchanting little book, which is that "if you truly believe in something - that is, if you care enough about it to not just dream about it, but to do something 1.

A 2013 CASEY Award Finalist for Best Baseball Book of the Year and a 'Booklist' Top Ten Sports Book of the Year When baseball swept America in the years after the Civil War, independent, semipro, and municipal leagues sprouted up everywhere. With civic pride on the line, rivalries were fierce and teams often signed ringers to play alongside the town dentist, insurance salesman, and teen prodigy. In drought-stricken Bismarck, North Dakota during the Great Depression, one of the most improbable teams in the history of baseball was assembled by one of the sport's most unlikely champions. A decade before Jackie Robinson broke into the Major Leagues, car dealer Neil Churchill signed the best players he could find, regardless of race, and fielded an integrated squad that took on all comers in spectacular fashion. 'Color Blind' immerses the reader in the wild and wonderful world of early independent baseball, with its tough competition and its novelty. Dunkel traces the rise of the Bismarck squad, focusing on the 1935 season and the first National Semipro Tournament. This is an entertaining, must-read for anyone interested in the history of baseball. 'A tale as fantastic as it is true.'--'Boston Globe'

In print, FW, the unnamed freelance Food Writer of Nancy Spiller's sardonic debut novel, Entertaining Disasters, lives high on the food chain in the heady realm of L.A.'s culinary journalism scene. She waxes poetic about her hip home gatherings, thinly veiling the identities of her Hollywood guest list. But in reality, FW's been inventing the dinner parties she writes about because social paralysis sets in at the very thought of a real guest in her fabulous-or is it shabby?-hillside home. Enter the glossy food magazine editor, new in town, who wants an invitation to one of her bashes, and the panic-stricken journey from fantasy hostess to reality bites is on. Entertaining Disasters-at turns whimsical and deeply affecting-chronicles the struggle FW faces in the week before she hosts her first real dinner party in ages. At the same time, her estranged sister threatens to drop by, her husband takes off, and her house implodes. In the way of Nora Ephron's Heartburn, Spiller's book is filled with the fabulous culinary lore and delicious-sounding recipes that have made FW's writing such popular foodie mania. Now all she has to do is somehow bring this fantasy world into workaday reality.
