Take The Time To Smell The Roses

'The House in Good Taste' by Elsie DeWolfe. Ms. DeWolfe has a unique style of writing that must be understood before you will truely enjoy the book.

The book will make you want to find more by or about this stylishly pragmatic decorator.

'Old Roses: The Master List' by Brent C. Dickerson. From The Author: When I began studying Old Roses seriously, in 1983, I found that, in order to do my work efficiently and to achieve valid results, I needed to have at hand a complete and accurate listing of them, including their basic data such as correct name, synonymy, breeder/introducer, date, classification, parentage when known, and some indication as to the basic color--all of this for all the old roses known to rose culture before 1920--not just those grown today, not just those the legends of which live on though the varieties themselves might be extinct--but *all* of them, obscure or famous, still here or long gone. No such listing was then available, no such listing had ever been available. I decided to make one myself. As my researches developed, I assiduously kept revising this master list to reflect the progress made such that it can be said that none of my books has received more continuous attention than *Old Roses: The Master List*. Researchers and students of old rose history will find that this book paves the way to a much clearer understanding of the complicated and knotty--but always fascinating--world of Old Roses.

'Ultimate Pool Maintenance Manual' by Terry Tamminen. This book is to swimming pools what the "Haynes" car maintenance manuals are to your car. It contains all the information required to maintain your pool, even though probably someone else is going to do it for you.

It can also help you save some money by doing the work yourself. The book is entirely about maintaining a pool, not owning one. This eBook is written in a friendly, readable style, and you can simply keep it as a reference manual to know what to do when things go wrong. If you are considering installing a pool or spa, this book will show you what you are getting yourself into.

Things I Didn't Know I Liked, Loved, & Look Forward To

picalttag

'Building A House Day-By-Day' I found this eBook informative but also entertaining and an easy read. I liked it because it was the real deal -- not written by a builder looking to get you to spend more money on a home. This Title caught my eye because I have some family building a guesthouse on their property and are not a reading buff like me. I took the time to see if this book would be helpful and worth recommending. I am glad I did for I get thank you calls weekly for the suggestion!

'Hugs For Gardeners' Funny story as to why I read this book. I was watching the History Channel about Three Months ago and came across this show about people who grew Giant pumpkins. Yes, that is right… Giant pumpkins. What I found interesting was the obsession and Love that these people had for growing pumpkins. 1,000 pound pumpkins. I have not been much for gardening. House plants for the most part and half hazard at that. I didn't know that watching your garden grow is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. Connecting you to the Earth. Be sure to check below for the coupon code on these two eBooks.

Pick A Year, Any Year. Ok, How About These Two?

picalttag

'Rising Tide' Man versus the mighty Mississippi River! The river is freakishly powerful, seemingly a living thing with an intent to go where it pleases. I had never heard of the Mississippi flood before picking up this book. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, John Barry has become a great narrative and he deserves his new visibility. Barry tells his story with painstaking research and narrative of 75 years surrounding and including 1927. This is a GREAT book worth your time to read. They say, that in order to know the future, you must study the past. Too bad we're still not paying attention !!!!!!!!!!! 'Savage Peace' covers an era in American history I know relatively little about, which brings me back to my point about studying the past. The year 1919 is fascinating. The book does a wonderful job of describing how dramatic this era was. 'Savage Peace' reads like a novel with heroes, villains, treachery, barbarity, and tragedy. One of the best things about this book is that it causes readers to be curious about some of the people and events it touches upon. It leaves you wanting to read ten more like it! Be sure to check below for the coupon code for a discount on these two ebooks.

Rising Tide: The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and How It Changed America eBook edition by Barry, John M.
An American epic of science, politics, race, honor, high society, and the Mississippi River, Rising Tide tells the riveting and nearly forgotten story of the greatest natural disaster this country has ever known -- the Mississippi flood of 1927. The river inundated the homes of nearly one million people, helped elect Huey Long governor and made Herbert Hoover president, drove hundreds of thousands of blacks north, and transformed American society and politics forever. A New York Times Notable Book of the Year, winner of the Southern Book Critics Circle Award and the Lillian Smith Award.

Savage Peace: Hope and Fear in America, 1919 eBook edition by Hagedorn, Ann
Written with the sweep of an epic novel and grounded in extensive research into contemporary documents, Savage Peace is a striking portrait of American democracy under stress. It is the surprising story of America in the year 1919. In the aftermath of an unprecedented worldwide war and a flu pandemic, Americans began the year full of hope, expecting to reap the benefits of peace. But instead, the fear of terrorism filled their days. Bolshevism was the new menace, and the federal government, utilizing a vast network of domestic spies, began to watch anyone deemed suspicious. A young lawyer named J. Edgar Hoover headed a brand-new intelligence division of the Bureau of Investigation (later to become the FBI). Bombs exploded on the doorstep of the attorney general's home in Washington, D.C., and thirty-six parcels containing bombs were discovered at post offices across the country. Poet and journalist Carl Sandburg, recently returned from abroad with a trunk full of Bolshevik literature, was detained in New York, his trunk seized. A twenty-one-year-old Russian girl living in New York was sentenced to fifteen years in prison for protesting U.S. intervention in Arctic Russia, where thousands of American soldiers remained after the Armistice, ostensibly to guard supplies but in reality to join a British force meant to be a warning to the new Bolshevik government. In 1919, wartime legislation intended to curb criticism of the government was extended and even strengthened.

Bestselling author Michael Korda's Horse People is the story -- sometimes hilariously funny, sometimes sad and moving, always shrewdly observed -- of a lifetime love affair with horses, and of the bonds that have linked humans with horses for more than ten thousand years.
