Ish Excerpt :

Features an audio read-along! A creative spirit learns that thinking “ish-ly” is far more wonderful than “getting it right” in this gentle new fable from the creator of the award-winning picture book The Dot. Ramon loved to draw. Anytime. Anything. Anywhere. Drawing is what Ramon does. It¹s what makes him happy. But in one split second, all that changes. A single reckless remark by Ramon's older brother, Leon, turns Ramon's carefree sketches into joyless struggles. Luckily for Ramon, though, his little sister, Marisol, sees the world differently. She opens his eyes to something a lot more valuable than getting things just "right." Combining the spareness of fable with the potency of parable, Peter Reynolds shines a bright beam of light on the need to kindle and tend our creative flames with care.

The Dot Excerpt :

Features an audio read-along! With a simple, witty story and free-spirited illustrations, Peter H. Reynolds entices even the stubbornly uncreative among us to make a mark -- and follow where it takes us. Her teacher smiled. "Just make a mark and see where it takes you." Art class is over, but Vashti is sitting glued to her chair in front of a blank piece of paper. The words of her teacher are a gentle invitation to express herself. But Vashti can’t draw - she’s no artist. To prove her point, Vashti jabs at a blank sheet of paper to make an unremarkable and angry mark. "There!" she says. That one little dot marks the beginning of Vashti’s journey of surprise and self-discovery. That special moment is the core of Peter H. Reynolds’s delicate fable about the creative spirit in all of us.

FAME ISH Excerpt :

A hilarious look at one’s star awkward, endearing missteps on the road to becoming fame-ish Becoming fame-ish ain’t easy. Judd Apatow must love you, but never put you in one of his movies. Remember to go drunk to your Legally Blonde 2 audition and make sure Paul Thomas Anderson has your cell phone number. Don’t forget to accidentally kiss Rush Limbaugh in front of paparazzi. It’s all part of the gig. Self-deprecating and sharp, Mary Lynn’s debut collection of essays will have you laughing, cringing, and reevaluating your idea of fame. Smart, satirical, and relatable, this book gives new meaning to the word “icon” as Mary Lynn navigates showbiz against the backdrop of her own idiosyncrasies. She gives the people what they want: a raucous look at what it’s like to kind of somehow sometimes have a name in Hollywood. Like when she made out with Tom Cruise for forty-five minutes on a couch (with and without tongues!), only to have the scene left on the cutting room floor. Mary Lynn’s Fame-ish is an honest intimate look at sex, relationships, and career. You won’t want to put it down.

When her beloved Miss Fincastle announces that a new girl, another AUDREY, is joining the class, Audrey suddenly becomes Audrey L., which makes her feel worse than ever. But is the new Audrey all bad? Might the two Audreys have more in common than just their name?

Fifteen powerful women and writers you know and love—from the pages of The New Yorker, The New York Times, Vogue, Glamour, and The Atlantic—offer captivating, intimate, and candid explorations about what it’s really like turning forty—and that the best is yet to come. The big 4-0. Like eighteen and twenty-one, this is a major and meaningful milestone our lives—especially for women. Turning forty is a poignant doorway between youth and...what comes after; a crossroads to reflect on the roads taken and not, and the paths yet before you. The decade that follows is ripe for nostalgia, inspiration, wisdom, and personal growth. In this dazzling collection, fifteen writers explore this rich phase in essays that are profound, moving, and above all, brimming with joie de vivre.

On Being 40(ish) reflects the hopes, fears, challenges, and opportunities of a generation. Beautifully designed, this is “a must read for anyone 40ish or beyond...Like a pep talk from your big sister, favorite cousin, and wise best friend” (Joanna Goddard, Cup of Jo).

Enlightened Ish Excerpt :

Enlightened-ish is one of the most approachable, down-to-Earth books for anyone seeking a self-guided spiritual awakening. Gails work is honest, inspiring and undoubtedly a refreshing read in a market of deeply esoteric and trite testimonies about spiritual enlightenment and self-empowerment. Gails story begins with the unexpected death of her father. She dedicates herself to writing Enlightened-ish and the belief that this event will guide her to confront death and loss in a way that few have had the courage to do. She comes forward with experiences from childhood and adulthood with an outrageous audacity and authenticity. She confronts the death of her father, the loss of a spiritual community and the effects of witnessing a violent suicide, a health crisis and a break-up - all events which occurred in an 10-month period! Her ability to use storytelling as a means of identifying the universal truths that she calls the Twelve Freedoms of Enlightened-ish Living keeps the reader engaged in a polite spiritual voyeurism that has not been matched. Without exception, her tenacity about being fully human and fully enlightened-ish will change the trajectory of spiritualists in every religion. Never before has a memoir been written with so much conviction and humility, then packaged so powerfully that readers everywhere will be awakened to the power of storytelling. Enlightened-ish is raw, conversational and unforgettable!

Brave ish Excerpt :

At forty, Margaret quits her sales job to follow her husband’s hotel career to Paris. She’s setting sail on this adventure with a glass half full of bravery, a well-traveled passport, a journal in which she plans to write her novel, and the mentally engrained Davis Family Handbook of Rules to Live By. Everyone tells Margaret she’s living the dream, but she feels adrift without a professional identity. Desperate to feel productive and valued, she abandons her writing and throws herself into new roles: perfect wife, hostess, guide, and expatriate. When she and her husband move to Cairo, however, the void inside she’s been ignoring threatens to engulf her. It’s clear that something needs to change, so she does the one thing she was raised never to do: asks for—and accepts—help. Over the next fifteen years abroad, the cultures of Egypt, Thailand, and Singapore confront Margaret with lessons she never would have learned at home. But it’s only when they move back to Chicago—with Margaret now stepping into the role of perfect caretaker to her parents—that she has to decide once and for all: will she dare to let go of the old rules and roles she thinks keep her safe in order to step into her own life and creative destiny?

Carnivore ish Excerpt :

Eating well can seem complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. The truth is, one of the keys to having the energy, optimal body composition, and overall wellness we crave is the thing we’re so often told is bad for us: animal protein. An ideal diet is one that is nourishing, balanced, and satisfying—but so often, we’re told to cut out entire categories of food, and instead of feeling healthy, we end up feeling restricted, hungry, and even sick. Women are frequently targeted with misinformation about the “appropriate” diet to keep us thin, which demonizes animal protein and fat in favor of low-calorie, low-fat foods and leaves us no closer to our goals. Good health is not about deprivation; it’s about finding balance and embracing the most nutrient-dense foods nature has to offer. In their new book, Carnivore-ish: 125 Protein-Rich Recipes to Boost Your Health and Build Muscle, Ashleigh VanHouten and Beth Lipton cut through the clutter and dogma to provide an accessible and informative resource about adding more healthy protein to your meals. This book busts the myths and fear mongering and explains how and why to include these foods, which taste delicious, provide satisfaction, and can help you look and feel the way you want to. In this book, you’ll find: • The latest scientific research on the importance of eating animal protein for optimal health • A breakdown of why we’ve been taught to fear meat—and what this misinformation is doing to our health • Tips to figure out your own “optimal diet” while avoiding unnecessary restrictions and marketing tactics aimed at keeping us confused • Carnivore-ish meal plans made easy, with a breakdown of what a “carnivore reset” is and why it’s worth trying • 125 tasty high-protein recipes to please all palates Whether you’re a lifelong meat eater looking for new and creative ways to get more animal protein, or you’re finished with fads and seeking a health-boosting diet you can stick to,
