More About These Books: 

Young Jane Young
by Gabrielle Zevin

Aviva Grossman, an ambitious congressional intern in Florida, makes the mistake of having an affair with her boss—and blogging about it. When the affair comes to light, the beloved congressman doesn’t take the fall. But Aviva does, and her life is over before it hardly begins: slut-shamed, she becomes a late-night talk show punch line, anathema to politics. From the bestselling author of the beloved The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry comes another perfect fable for our times—a story about women, choices, and recovering from past mistakes. 

“This book will not only thoroughly entertain everyone who reads it; it is the most immaculate takedown of slut-shaming in literature or anywhere else. Cheers, and gratitude, to the author.” —Kirkus Review, starred review

An American Marriage
by Tayari Jones

Newlyweds Celestial and Roy are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. But as they settle into the routine of their life together, Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn’t commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy’s time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to the love that has been her center. After five years, Roy’s conviction is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together.

“Tayari Jones is a great storyteller. An American Marriage holds the reader from first page to last, with her compassionate observation, her clear-eyed insight and her beautifully written and complex characters.” —Amy Bloom, author of Lucky Us
“I’m so excited for this book to be in the world. Tayari’s novel is timely, thoughtful, and beautifully written. Reading it, I found myself angry as hell, laughing out loud, choking up and cheering. A gem of a book.” —Jacqueline Woodson, National Book Award winning author of Another Brooklyn and Brown Girl Dreaming

 

The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search for Human Happiness
by Paula Poundstone

Comedian Paula Poundstone (and often her three kids) conducts a "thorough investigation" into whether what people say makes them happy actually last when confronted with the reality of a busy, messy life. Offering herself up as a human guinea pig in a series of thoroughly unscientific experiments, Poundstone tries out a different get-happy hypothesis in each chapter of her book that will bring happiness (in the form of laughter) to many readers at least for a little while.

“If you haven't met Paula Poundstone, I highly recommend that you get to know her now. I flew through her book and laughed at every page.”—Dick Van Dyke
“Paula Poundstone never disappoints with her stand-up, and now she has written an informative and highly entertaining book which deserves to be read and discussed…and I highly recommend that it is.” —Carl Reiner

When the English Fall
by David Williams

A riveting and unexpected novel that questions whether a peaceful and nonviolent community can survive when a catastrophic solar storm brings about the collapse of modern civilization. Seen through the diary of an Amish farmer named Jacob as he tries to protect his family and his way of life, When the English Fall examines the idea of peace in the face of deadly chaos.

“Satisfying . . . The unique spin draws readers into an alarmingly plausible story of contemporary civilization’s demise.” —Publishers Weekly
“A fascinating debut.” —B&N Sci-Fi blog 

Leave Me
by Gayle Forman

Meet Maribeth Klein: a harried working mother who’s so busy taking care of her husband and twins, she doesn’t even realize she’s had a heart attack. Surprised to discover that her recuperation seems to be an imposition on those who rely on her, Maribeth does the unthinkable: she packs a bag and leaves. But, as is often the case, once we get where we’re going we see our lives from a different perspective. With bighearted characters who stumble and trip, grow and forgive, Leave Me is about facing the fears we’re all running from. 

“An enthralling novel.”—O, The Oprah Magazine
“This surprising, compassionate story brings to life the secret, guilty fantasy of many overworked moms.” —People
“It’s hard not to relate to—and root for—Maribeth even as she does the unthinkable” —Family Circle

How Well Trained Is Your Dog? Page-A-Day Quiz

 
 

Want Your Dog To Be Well Trained? We'll Show You How:

Training the Best Dog EverTraining the Best Dog Ever relies on trust and treats, not choke collars; on bonding, not leash-yanking or reprimanding. The five-week training program takes only 10 to 20 minutes of practice a day and works both for puppies and for adult dogs that need to be trained out of bad habits. Illustrated with step-by-step photographs, the book covers hand-feeding; crate and potty training; and basic cues—sit, stay, come here—as well as more complex goals, such as bite inhibition and water safety. It shows how to avoid or correct typical behavior problems, including jumping, barking, and leash-pulling. Plus: how to make your dog comfortable in the world—a dog that knows how to behave in a vet’s office, is at ease around strangers, and more. In other words, the best dog ever.

You, yes, you can train the best dog EVER (or be perfectly happy with your pesky pooch)!
