For Rita Reinecker, life as the daughter of a well-known writer was far from a fantasy. Rita’s father was Herbert Reinecker, a prolific German novelist, dramatist, and screenwriter who lived in... More > his own world of plot and dialogue. She grew up feeling not pretty enough for her father and not good enough for her mother.

In this book is my story and my personal diaries that I kept. I have always been one to say how I felt at the time, so there are things I wrote when I was mad that I might not have written otherwise... More > and the diaries get quite personal. I’m pretty sure my teenage years are an accurate reflection of many other teenage girls and it’s interesting to see how it felt then and how growing up has changed things. It’s easy to reflect and see that nothing is ever as bad as it seems and to give it a few days and one doesn't feel the same way, usually. I believe the teenage years are the hardest part of life for a girl and sadly it is also the time when we think we’re adults and know everything. A lot of things happened in my teen years, mostly having to do with boyfriends, family and friends and I too quickly got married (at sixteen years old) and had to grow up while being married to an older man. This made the teen years even tougher because I was forced to be grown up and confused about life at the same time.< Less

Jim Poole grew up long ago on a mink farm in the small town of Sudbury, Massachusetts. During the Depression Jim went to school, watered mink and explored and enjoyed life pretty much on his own... More > terms—a time when parents were busy and neighborhood children played outside on their own. During WWII Jim took on more adult responsi­bilities as a young farmhand, help­ing his father and older sister feed and water mink on a neighbor’s mink ranch. Jim’s colorful "Thumbs Out" reminiscences begin well be­fore he headed off to first grade and play out through years in Sudbury schools, college at UVM in Vermont and U.S. Army service in Fort Rucker, Alabama. These stories, in­ter­spersed with 44 snapshots and other illus­trations, come to a close after Jim’s Army stint when he returned to the mink farm with his lovely pregnant wife and a protective dachshund puppy to welcome Dirk Daniel, their firstborn, into their lives almost before they had unpacked.< Less

“They will catch you sooner or later,” could be the theme of this book on famous manhunts, except for teen ager Joey Spears, in the Foreword, who was buried as an “unknown. Some are... More > memorable, some have been forgotten, but in each one a desperate fugitive is trying to run, and generally failing. From famous killers like John Wilkes Booth, who murdered President Abraham Lincoln, to criminal John Dillinger, the “Robin Hood crook” according to the newspapers of the day, who killed many others. This book includes one of the worst of all, Theodore "Ted" Bundy, who killed and then used the bodies of many pretty young women. Some are now on death rows in prisons, where they belong, and some are in prison awaiting the next meeting in court. And some, like Michael Goodwin, who was convicted of arranging the murders of speed king Mickey Thompson and his lovely wife Trudy, swear they are innocent and are only waiting for a court to free them. Each story is different, but every one is gripping.< Less

With that the tail-fin off the bomber came crashing down and slid down the wall". "I didn't realise, but when the Verger had walked past the static camera, he had said, “I’ll give it six weeks,” not realising the camera was on. Oh Dear!". "A ton of sea water came in and drenched us all. It ruined my shoes and my dress suit was pretty bad. When I reached the other side, I tripped off and drove home wrapped in a large blanket. It was all good fun though".< Less
I'm Singing By Gail Mullaney
Hardcover: $18.88
Prints in 3-5 business days
I call this an odd and quirky memoir with a surprising, uplifting message of hope. My back cover reads: In this book you'll find all my dirty little secrets: the embarrassment, the shame, the... More > absurd, the downright stupid. You will also find sprinkled some deep, dark moments that will still somehow make you smile, possibly laugh, maybe even snort a time or two, if you're prone to that sort of thing. I basically bare my soul for your voyeuristic pleasure. What? You’re still not sure you want to buy this book? Man, you are a tough sell. OK, well, a) you will probably feel better about yourself because I’m pretty sure by comparison your life has been a little more together than mine. Hmmm, b) I mention the word “sex,” and c) there’s a cat chapter? That’s all I got.< Less
