    "It's undeniably thrilling to find words for our strangest feelings...Koenig casts light into lonely corners of human experience...An enchanting book. " --The Washington Post

    A truly original book in every sense of the word, The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows poetically defines emotions that we all feel but don't have the words to express--until now.

    Have you ever wondered about the lives of each person you pass on the street, realizing that everyone is the main character in their own story, each living a life as vivid and complex as your own? That feeling has a name: "sonder." Or maybe you've watched a thunderstorm roll in and felt a primal hunger for disaster, hoping it would shake up your life. That's called "lachesism." Or you were looking through old photos and felt a pang of nostalgia for a time you've never actually experienced. That's "anemoia."

    If you've never heard of these terms before, that's because they didn't exist until John Koenig set out to fill the gaps in our language of emotion. The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows "creates beautiful new words that we need but do not yet have," says John Green, bestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars. By turns poignant, relatable, and mind-bending, the definitions include whimsical etymologies drawn from languages around the world, interspersed with otherworldly collages and lyrical essays that explore forgotten corners of the human condition--from "astrophe," the longing to explore beyond the planet Earth, to "zenosyne," the sense that time keeps getting faster.

    The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows is for anyone who enjoys a shift in perspective, pondering the ineffable feelings that make up our lives. With a gorgeous package and beautiful illustrations throughout, this is the perfect gift for creatives, word nerds, and human beings everywhere.

    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.
