    BIRD BY BIRD

    BIRD BY BIRD

    $17.00
    More Info
    "Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report on birds written that he'd had three months to write. It was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books on birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him, put his arm around my brother's shoulder, and said, 'Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.'"

    "A warm, generous and hilarious guide through the writer's world and its treacherous swamps." -- "Los Angeles Times."

    "A gift to all of us mortals who write or ever wanted to write... sidesplittingly funny, patiently wise and alternately cranky and kind -- a reveille to get off our duffs and start writing "now," while we still can." -- "Seattle Times."

    FLORIOGRAPHY

    FLORIOGRAPHY

    $19.99
    More Info
    A charming, gorgeously illustrated botanical encyclopedia for your favorite romantic, local witch, bride-to-be, or green-thumbed friend.

    Floriography is a full-color guide to the historical uses and secret meanings behind an impressive array of flowers and herbs. The book explores the coded significances associated with various blooms, from flowers for a lover to flowers for an enemy.

    The language of flowers was historically used as a means of secret communication. It soared in popularity during the 19th century, especially in Victorian England and the U.S., when proper etiquette discouraged open displays of emotion. Mysterious and playful, the language of flowers has roots in everything from the characteristics of the plant to its presence in folklore and history. Researched and illustrated by popular artist Jessica Roux, this book makes a stunning display piece, conversation-starter, or thoughtful gift.

    More Info
    Join David & Susan Schwartz on a whirlwind tour of Costco warehouses around the globe. They are two of Costco's biggest fans, yet live in one of NYC's smallest apartments. Since 2016, they have been to over 225 of Costco's 850+ warehouses, plus gotten behind-the-scenes looks at depots, packaging facilities, vendors, meatpacking plants, and even a pre-opening party.

    They have visited at least one warehouse in 46 US states and 13 other countries, including Australia, Canada, China, France, Iceland, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden, South Korea, Taiwan, and the UK. They have also completed a cross-country Costco-themed road trip from Yonkers, New York to Yorba Linda, California, stopping to visit their favorite retailer along the way.

    Topics are covered in a whimsical A to Z format, using Q & A to cover topics ranging from Cashews and Chicken to Hot Dogs and Hawaii, targeted to delight the more than 120 million Costco members and over 300,000 dedicated Costco employees. There is a Prologue that describes how the authors came to write the book and an introduction that provides a narrative history of Costco and its predecessor companies.

    Sample Fun Facts:

  • Costco sells more than half of the world's cashews and seven times more hotdogs than all MLB stadiums combined.
  • When Costco changed its source of salmon from Chile to Norway it impacted the economies of both countries.
  • Costco sells six million pumpkin pies each year, but only between September and December.

  • Little Book of Jane Austen

    Little Book of Jane Austen

    $8.95
    More Info

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen never goes out of style.

    Jane Austen's much-loved novels vividly describe 19th-century society. But they are also timeless classics that continue to enjoy wild popularity 200 years after the author's death. Her delightfully quotable observations on love, men and women, society and class remain as relevant as they ever were. Packed full of intelligent insights, witty asides and wry observations, alongside fascinating facts about Austen's remarkable life, this Little Book showcases some of the best lines ever crafted in the English language.

    "It isn't what we say or think that defines us, but what we do." Sense and Sensibility, 1811

    "For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours and laugh at them in our turn?" Pride and Prejudice, 1813

    "There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart." Emma, 1815

    When she wasn't writing world-class novels, Jane Austen was often brewing beer - and makes frequent reference to it in her personal letters. It was common for Regency-era families to brew beer, as untreated water was often unsafe to drink.
