New Releases 9/9/14 Recommended Books

Hello My Friends! Of all the books being released this week – here is what I think are the most awesome. The awesomest. Anyway, I recommend the following books.  Enjoy!

Horton and the Kwuggerbug and more Lost Stories  by Dr. Seuss & Charles D. Cohen Available September 9, 2014 $9.49. 
 A new Dr. Seuss book! This follow-up to The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories features familiar Seussian faces and places—including Horton the Elephant, Marco, Mulberry Street, and a Grinch—as well as an introduction by renowned Seuss scholar Charles D. Cohen. 

Seuss fans will learn more about Horton’s integrity, Marco’s amazing imagination, a narrowly avoided disaster on Mullbery Street, and a devious Grinch. With a color palette enhanced beyond that of the magazines in which the stories originally appeared, this new volume of “lost” tales is a perfect gift for young readers and a must-have for Seuss collectors of all ages!

Horton the Elephant, Marco, and a Grinch return in this rousing recovery of four long-lost stories by the immortal Dr. Seuss!

Most of these entertaining tales appeared in Redbook magazine in the early fifties, but none have not been published since. Respected Seuss scholar Charles D. Cohen offers context to these rediscovered manuscript treasures in a buoyant introduction, making this picture book a gem for readers from four to eight to eighty and beyond. 

If you love Dr. Seuss (and who doesn’t?) why not get The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories (Classic Seuss)  and a marvelous book from 1973  Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? (Classic Seuss)

 

 

“When you think things are bad, when you feel sour and blue, you should do what I do!”

 

So begins the terrific advice of the wise old man in the Desert of Drize. This classic book provides the perfect antidote for readers of all ages who are feeling a bit down in the dumps. Thanks to Dr. Seuss’s trademark rhymes and signature illustrations, readers will, without a doubt, realize just how lucky they truly are.

Holly Black and Cassandra Clare TOGETHER with a new series.The Iron Trial (Book One of Magisterium) (The Magisterium) The two bestselling series authors: Holly Black (The Spiderwick Chronicles) and Cassandra Clare (The Mortal Instruments Trilogy) create a wonderful story about Callum Hunt, a boy who really, really, really doesn’t want to go to magic school, but somehow can’t succeed at failing.

 I love Holly Blacks Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale series and recommend you check out these wonderful young adult books also. Modern Faerie Tales: Tithe; Valiant; Ironside

 Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion by Sam Harris. 
For the millions of Americans who want spirituality without religion, Sam Harris’s new book is a guide to meditation as a rational spiritual practice informed by neuroscience and psychology. From multiple New York Times bestselling author, neuroscientist, and “new atheist” Sam Harris, Waking Up is for the 30 percent of Americans who follow no religion, but who suspect that Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tzu, Rumi, and the other saints and sages of history could not have all been epileptics, schizophrenics, or frauds.

Throughout the book, Harris argues that there are important truths to be found in the experiences of such contemplatives—and, therefore, that there is more to understanding reality than science and secular culture generally allow. Waking Up is part seeker’s memoir and part exploration of the scientific underpinnings of spirituality. No other book marries contemplative wisdom and modern science in this way, and no author other than Sam Harris—a scientist, philosopher, and famous skeptic—could write it.
