If you've ever wondered whether carrots improve your vision (they do) and why elephants have great memories, consult A Word to the Wise. You'll discover that it's never too late to learn from a proverb or an old wives' tale. This captivating book is a fascinating compilation of age-old expressions and customs, and its insights cover everything from health tips and kitchen tricks to gardening know-how and hints for predicting the weather. Folklorist Ruth Binney explains the truth behind such traditions as polishing windows with newspaper and blowing out birthday candles in a single breath. She also discusses whether classic adages are still relevant or, like eating oysters only in "R" months, their truths have faded with the passage of time. This charmingly illustrated volume of enduring wisdom makes a splendid keepsake as well as a fine gift.

After a career in various professional and senior management roles within a large international IT company and having enjoyed a life, thus far, full of rich personal experiences, crossing paths with some fascinating people, the author decided to publish a small collection of his own speeches, articles, incidental writings and other "blatherings" along the way. The intention of this book is to provide the reader with examples of the author's humour, taking the form of a variety of speeches in many differing venues, to a wide selection of different audiences. Hopefully, the reader will enjoy a snicker or two. Also included are a number of speeches written by friends or relatives of the author, either about him personally or related to circumstances where he was working at the time. The most important aspect of speech making for the author is preparing a speech and putting in the effort, no matter how informal or short the item may be, to show a fundamental mark of respect to the audience, each and every time. Included in the content are a number of humorous quotations in keeping with the book's general themes, one or two of the author's song writing efforts, some poems and one or two stories for some additional colour.

It's no-holds-barred murder, in the latest page-turning Library Lover's Mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of Hitting the Books. Lindsey Norris is finally getting married to the man of her dreams--but it's not all roses for Briar Creek's beloved library director, as gardening enthusiast and town newcomer Aaron Grady gives the term "book lover" a whole new meaning. Inappropriate looks and unwelcome late-night visits to Lindsey's house have everyone from the crafternooners to Lindsey's fiancé, Sully, on edge. When Grady's dead body is found staged outside the library and all the clues point to Sully, Lindsey knows it's up to her to dig through the hidden chapters of Grady's previous life to find the real culprit and clear Sully's name. But becoming a thorn in the killer's side is not without its consequences, and the closer Lindsey gets to the truth, the more determined the murderer is to make her just a footnote.
