DESCRIPTION:

A dark and bitingly humorous collection of short stories from the “brilliantly evocative” (Time) Paul Theroux

A family watches in horror as their patriarch transforms into the singing, wise-cracking lead of an old-timey minstrel show. A renowned art collector relishes publicly destroying his most valuable pieces. Two boys stand by helplessly as their father stages an all-consuming war on the raccoons living in the woods around their house. A young artist devotes himself to a wealthy, malicious gossip, knowing that it’s just a matter of time before she turns on him.
In this new collection of short stories, acclaimed author Paul Theroux explores the tenuous leadership of the elite and the surprising revenge of the overlooked. He shows us humanity possessed, consumed by its own desire and compulsion, always with his carefully honed eye for detail and the subtle idiosyncrasies that bring his characters to life. Searing, dark, and sure to unsettle, Mr. Bones is a stunning new display of Paul Theroux’s “fluent, faintly sinister powers of vision and imagination” (John Updike, The New Yorker).

DESCRIPTION:

From Slouch to Runner
C25K is short for Couch to five kilometers. C25K Pro for your smartphone is designed to get just about anyone from being a couch potato to running either five kilometers or 30 minutes in just nine weeks.

Too many people have been deterred from running simply because they try starting off too fast and too far. Their bodies rebel, and they wind up miserable, wondering why anyone would possibly want to do this to themselves. You should ease into your running program gradually, with the help of C25K Pro on your Android device.

The Program
Couch to five kilometers is less of a running regimen than a walking and jogging program. The C25K running plan from Cool Running is a great way to get someone who’s never run before to being a three-mile runner in nine weeks. It alternates running and walking, slowly getting the body accustomed to distance running. It times your workout, letting you know through audio clips when it’s time to switch your pace while listening to the music of your choice or podcasts you’ve downloaded onto your smartphone. For example, switch pace from walking to running, or from running to cooling down. Additionally, if you like C25K, there’s a follow up plan that will get you to 10K.

Features
This Pro version has background mode, music controller, voice cues, custom sounds and notifications, and Facebook integration.

In C25K Pro’s settings, you can customize your program regimen:

Volume boost allows you to set the correct volume for program notifications while other music of your choice is playing.
Screen lock allows you to choose whether or not to lock your screen during a session so no other processes can be accidentally launched while you’re running.
Vibrate on Notification alerts you physically of a change in your running session.
Customize your Facebook messages and choose whether you want to be prompted to update your Facebook page.
You can choose your own notification sounds on top of the built-in voice and bell ones. You can actually use any ringtone for any notification.
You can choose additional notifications for one-minute left, halfway, or custom markers. You can also choose whether you want the notifications spoken by a male or female voice, or bell alerts.
You can control the music right from within the app. No need to switch apps if you want to pause, forward, or go back on your playlist.
Notification for “turning around” when you’re in the middle of the workout, in case you want to run and then come back.

Perhaps the smartest man to ever live, Matthew Brand changed the world by twenty-five years old. In his mid-thirties, he still shaped the world as he wanted, until a few cops gunned down his son on the street.

Brand’s life changed then. He forgot about bettering Earth and started trying to resurrect his son.

Eventually, Brand’s mind even overpowered death’s mysteries; he discovered how to bring back the dead–he only needed living bodies to make his son’s life possible again. Why not use the bodies of those who killed his son?

In the largest manhunt the FBI’s ever experienced, how do they stop a man who can calculate all the odds and stack them in his favor?

“Dangerously addicting.”-Sherrilyn Kenyon #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Crosby serves up suspense, secrets and Southern scandal like no one else!” – Harlan Coben #1 New York Times bestselling author

Lifting the veil of secrecy on a grand Southern family in decline, New York Times bestselling author Tanya Anne Crosby explores the lives of Caroline, Augusta, and Savannah Aldridge, three sisters who share a dark past and an uncertain future…Caroline Aldridge was surprised by the number of mourners at her mother’s funeral. Evidently the newspaper heiress who had caused her children so much pain was well-loved by everyone else in Charleston. Now she was gone, leaving behind countless secrets–and a few demands: Caroline and her sisters must live together for one year or lose their inheritance. And Caroline must take over The Tribune. But a killer is making headlines, and Caroline may have unwittingly stepped into the crosshairs…

A series of kidnappings and murders resurrect the sisters’ memories of their brother’s disappearance as a child–and Caroline fears she may be next. Yet in the midst of her turmoil, she may be rekindling a romance she’d extinguished long ago. With Jack back in her life and the tattered bonds…

From the Author of the New York Times bestseller Hippie Boy: A Girl’s Story

“A strong addition to any contemporary memoir collection.” – Midwest Book Review

At the age of 37, Ingrid Ricks walked into an eye doctor’s office expecting to walk outt with a cute pair of red cat-eye frames–only to learn she suffered from Retinitis Pigmentosa, a rare, incurable eye disease that was stealing her eyesight and would eventually leave her completely blind.

Gripped with the terrifying fear that she wouldn’t be able to see her two young daughters grow up, would become a burden to her husband, and would lose the career and independence that defines her, Ingrid embarks on a quest to fix her eyes that ends up fixing her life.

Through an eight-year journey marked by a trip to South Africa to write about AIDS orphans, a four-day visit with a doctor who focuses on whole-body health, a relationship-changing confrontation with her husband and a life-changing lesson from her daughters, Ingrid learns to embrace the moment and see what counts in life–something no amount of vision loss can take from her.

DESCRIPTION:

Two men face off against an all-powerful navy—and the fate of the ocean’s most majestic creatures hangs in the balance.

“A gripping, brilliantly told tale of the secret and deadly struggle between American national security and the kings of the oceans.”—Bob Woodward

War of the Whales is the gripping tale of a crusading attorney who stumbles on one of the US Navy’s best-kept secrets: a submarine detection system that floods entire ocean basins with high-intensity sound—and drives whales onto beaches. As Joel Reynolds launches a legal fight to expose and challenge the Navy program, marine biologist Ken Balcomb witnesses a mysterious mass stranding of whales near his research station in the Bahamas. Investigating this calamity, Balcomb is forced to choose between his conscience and an oath of secrecy he swore to the Navy in his youth.

When Balcomb and Reynolds team up to expose the truth behind an epidemic of mass strandings, the stage is set for an epic battle that pits admirals against activists, rogue submarines against weaponized dolphins, and national security against the need to safeguard the ocean environment. Waged in secret military labs and the nation’s highest court, War of the Whales is a real-life thriller that…

Daily Deal for December 16 at

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

It’s the rule-always watch your fives and twenty-fives. When a convoy halts to investigate a possible roadside bomb, stay in the vehicle and scan five meters in every direction. A bomb inside five meters cuts through the armor, killing everyone in the truck. Once clear, get out and sweep twenty-five meters. A bomb inside twenty-five meters kills the dismounted scouts investigating the road ahead.

Fives and twenty-fives mark the measure of a marine’s life in the road repair platoon. Dispatched to fill potholes on the highways of Iraq, the platoon works to assure safe passage for citizens and military personnel. Their mission lacks the glory of the infantry, but in a war where every pothole contains a hidden bomb, road repair brings its own danger.

Lieutenant Donavan leads the platoon, painfully aware of his shortcomings and isolated by his rank. Doc Pleasant, the medic, joined for opportunity, but finds his pride undone as he watches friends die. And there’s Kateb, known to the Americans as Dodge, an Iraqi interpreter whose love of American culture-from hip-hop to the dog-eared copy of Huck Finn

he carries-is matched only by his disdain for what Americans are doing…

DESCRIPTION:

“When I look back on my childhood I wonder how I managed to survive at all. It was, of course, a miserable childhood: the happy childhood is hardly worth your while. Worse than the ordinary miserable childhood is the miserable Irish childhood, and worse yet is the miserable Irish Catholic childhood.”
So begins the luminous memoir of Frank McCourt, born in Depression-era Brooklyn to recent Irish immigrants and raised in the slums of Limerick, Ireland. Frank’s mother, Angela, has no money to feed the children since Frank’s father, Malachy, rarely works, and when he does he drinks his wages. Yet Malachy– exasperating, irresponsible and beguiling– does nurture in Frank an appetite for the one thing he can provide: a story. Frank lives for his father’s tales of Cuchulain, who saved Ireland, and of the Angel on the Seventh Step, who brings his mother babies.
Perhaps it is story that accounts for Frank’s survival. Wearing rags for diapers, begging a pig’s head for Christmas dinner and gathering coal from the roadside to light a fire, Frank endures poverty, near-starvation and the casual cruelty of relatives and neighbors–yet lives to tell his tale with eloquence, exuberance and remarkable forgiveness….
