Based on the Emmy Award­-winning “genius” (The Guardian) web series, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, this is a new novel starring Lizzie’s spunky sister Lydia as she navigates the joys and pitfalls of becoming an adult in the digital age. Before her older sister, Lizzie, started her wildly popular vlog, Lydia was just a normal twenty-year-old plotting the many ways she could get away with skipping her community college classes and finding the perfect fake ID. She may not have had much direction, but she loved her family and had plenty of fun. Then Lizzie’s vlog turned the Bennet sisters into Internet sensations, and Lydia basked in the attention as people watched, debated, tweeted, tumblr’d, and blogged about her life. But not all attention is good… After her ex-boyfriend, George Wickham took advantage of Lydia’s newfound web-fame, betrayed her trust, and destroyed her online reputation, she’s no longer a naïve, carefree girl. Now, Lydia must work to win back her family’s trust and respect and find her place in a far more judgmental world. Told in Lydia’s distinctive, eccentric, and endearing voice, The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet picks up right where The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet left off and “offers a fresh take on Pride and Prejudice without ruining it” (The Washington Post, on The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet). Featuring fresh twists, wonderful new characters, and scores of hilarious texts, doodles, and tweets, The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet takes you behind the webcam and into the lives of your favorite sisters in a way that’s sure to satisfy existing fans and delight new ones.

The many adventures of the "epic" in modern times are fascinating topics in themselves. The Romantics claimed that every self-respecting nation should, at some time, have had one and they set out to reconstruct these epics for political as well as cultural reasons. Such epics represented earlier stages in the development of nation-states and in this modern world they were, for a long time, hard to appreciate. The introduction of tape recorders, however, brought the epic back in the limelight. It became fashionable for scholars to record long oral narratives, and to present them as long written poems that reflected deeply ingrained ideas. Because of this technology, the idea of the epic was revitalized. This volume presents critical analyses of epics in Sub-Saharan Africa, the former Soviet Union, South-East Asia, Medieval Europe, and America and discusses the process of revitalization, sometimes even invention, of epics in particular historical, political, and academic contexts. Jan Jansen is a member of the Department of Anthropology of the University of Leiden, Netherlands. Henk M.J. Maier is professor in the Department of Languages and Cultures of Southeast Asia and Oceania of the University of Leiden, Netherlands.

Eons ago, God created legions of angels----perfect, beautiful beings who never knew sickness, sorrow, or death. Eternal beings whose only emotion they had ever known was love. Love for each other and love for God, their creator. The angels lived with God in paradise, in an everlasting heaven filled with a contentment of unconditional love that can only be imagined. Not one wanted anything more than to spend eternity just as it was. But God had plans for them, each and every one. They were to be his counselors of heaven. They were to guide, comfort, and be caretakers for all of God's future creations. To spread his love and to give hope to the hopeless and peace to the distressed, even to be messengers for God, God knew they would need more than love to do his will. They would need to master all of the emotions. They would need to understand the depths of pain and suffering and the thrill of winning to the solace of losing. They would need to know the amazement of birth and the unbearable sorrow of death and to know not just love but hate and, most importantly, faith, compassion, and forgiveness. So much to teach them and so many, but God, with his infinite wisdom, had it all worked out. He created an amazing blue orb, an entire world full of countless creatures, beautiful landscapes, and everything that would be needed. A perfect training ground he called simply earth, a world where free will along with good and bad decisions would lead them all on endless adventures. Once in earth, their alter egos would be unknown to them. They would be born and live out entire lives until death, which would bring them back to heaven where they would awaken with all of the memories of their time on earth. They would repeat these trips for centuries until they had experienced all there was to experience. Then they would be ready to do God's will. This is a story of an angel who was very special to God, a beautiful, very gentle, and kind-spirited angel simply named Tab. Tab had been to earth so many times. She had lived countless lives out on earth, and she could remember every detail of every visit. She loved the adventure and all the drama. Almost as soon as she'd get back to heaven, she'd go back to earth again and again and again. Her enthusiasm did not go unnoticed. Soon she would be given a great task. She would be given a chance to help earth as no other angel ever had, and God was going to leave it all in her hands as to just what and how she did it---well, almost all in her hands.

Chance was only two years old when the Poormans discovered him asleep on a grassy mound just outside the polluted industrial city of Littleton. They searched high and low for the boy's parents, but to no avail. When no one claimed him, they accepted him into their lives and loved him as their own. Despite the Poormans' kindness, Chance lives a miserable life. At seven years old, he is small for his age-the smallest boy in first grade, as a matter of fact-and his peers picked on him mercilessly. Lonely and abandoned, Chance has nothing but his size and the mysterious clay amulet that was around his neck when the Poormans found him to help him learn who his birth parents really were. His circumstances seem hopeless. Little does Chance know, however, that Mrs. Poorman's strange meeting with a mysterious street merchant who clomps when he walks will change his life forever. Their meeting is no coincidence. Later, the same merchant leads Chance through a portal to another world-Chance's home world, the magical place in which he was born but cannot remember. As Chance explores this once-peaceful land, his adventures lead him to many wondrous creatures and bring him unbreakable friendships and the opportunity to fulfill his destiny to save this world from a dark and treacherous evil.

As you should have guessed by the title, this is not the standard bedtime story with a princess and a prince and an evil stepparent and some sort of magic spell. Not one castle, nor trolls, not even an enchanted forest is tucked with loving care into this bedtime story. To be totally honest about the whole shebang, it’s not so much a bedtime story as a bedtime epic event. An explanation may be in order right about now. There are 30 Adventures in this saga, to be read in order as bedtime stories. No skipping around, mind you, because it will make even less sense if you do that, so when you get to the Temple of the Belchmonkeys and your mind is not totally prepared for it, well, that’s a whole different bucket of pickles altogether. And you could rip through more than one story in a night, but that might just make your kids loopy. 30 Adventures, 30 nights, so you’re pretty much covered for a month. Now, somebody’s going to screech that some months have 31 days (thanks, May and October and you other troublemakers for screwing this up) and so you have a day left over. And there’s some real hollering going on about the February problem, and how if you read this story during that month, even during a leap year, you still have extra story left over. The thing is, the story is 30 nights long because it’s a nice round number (unlike 31, which is prime, for crying out loud) and that’s how long the story takes to tell. So there. The important idea is that this is an interactive story. Not a passive story where your kid lays there like an unfortunate lump on the mattress and you yammer on until you bore the poor child to sleep. This story has a narrator reading the action lines (that’s you, sport). There are also 21 different voices in the tale, all of which you’ll have fun doing. Even better, let your child read along and read a voice or two. The full list of voices is on the next few pages, plus what we think they sound like, although you can change them pretty much any way you want. It’s not like we’re keeping score. Also, you will find action lines sprinkled throughout. You’ll recognize these because they’re in italics so they look like they’re in motion, hence we call them action lines and they instruct you or your offspring to do certain things. Be nice and gentle, since you’ll have to start a pillow fight in Adventure 1. Remember, you’re bigger. Play nice.

So when he and six other teens embark on a quest to save their drought-stricken village, for Kiran, it's a chance to seek the truth. With only an ancient scroll to guide them, they must navigate a world of shamans and witches, headhunters and slave traders, as they journey across flatlands rife with wind demons, raft a river whose spirit rages in a fury of whitewater, and cut through a jungle inhabited by cannibals, all the while evading the demon Mawghuls that lurk in every dark crevice. Lost and struggling to survive, Kiran must decide whether to remain faithful to The Way or trust in the wisdom of the so-called heathen savages. His revelation forces him to question everything he was taught to believe. For, in the quest for truth, one must ask: what is truth?

Like many Americans, Doug Fine enjoys his creature comforts, but he also knows full well they keep him addicted to oil. So he wonders: Is it possible to keep his Netflix and his car, his Wi-Fi and his subwoofers, and still reduce his carbon footprint? In an attempt to find out, Fine moves to a remote ranch in New Mexico, where he brazenly vows to grow his own food, use sunlight to power his world, and drive on restaurant grease. Never mind that he has no farming, mechanical or electrical skills. Whether installing solar panels, defending goats he found on Craigslist against coyotes, or co-opting waste oil from a local restaurant to fill the tank in his Ridiculously Oversized American Truck, Fine's undertaking makes one thing clear: It ain't easy being green. In fact, his journey uncovers a slew of surprising facts about alternative energy, organic and locally grown food, and climate change.--From publisher description.
