The Desert Gardener's Calendar
What's the best time to plant or prune? When should you fertilize fruit trees? What's the earliest date to set out tomato plants? Gardeners in the desert Southwest can't rely on books that try to cover the whole country. Summer heat, less rain, and shorter, unreliable growing seasons are important factors in the desert. That's why The Desert Gardener's Calendar can be essential to gardening success. Whether you're raising vegetables, nursing citrus trees, or just trying to keep your front yard looking its best, you'll find that this handy book gives you a valuable month-by-month perspective on the year. It helps you to focus on necessary activities and reminds you of simple tasks you might overlook. It's especially valuable for people who've moved to the desert regions from other parts of the country and follow old gardening dates that seldom apply to their new home. The Desert Gardener's Calendar is a guide to the maintenance you need to do to keep your garden flourishing and your landscape attractive throughout the year. It combines the month-by-month gardening and landscaping activities from two separate books by George Brookbank--Desert Gardening, Fruits and Vegetables and Desert Landscaping--and was created in response to readers who have found the calendar sections of those books especially invaluable. And because not all deserts are the same, Brookbank is careful to point out differences in scheduling encountered by gardeners in low- and middle-elevation regions in California and the Southwest. "I believe," says the author, "that if you use this calendar and let your judgment become more accurate with experience, you'll soon be doing everything right." Although that might suggest a day when you don't need this book, chances are good that, if you're a desert gardener, right now you do.

The Inn at Angel Island
The New York Times bestselling authors present a new series set on an island a stone's skip away from Cape Light...

Welcome to Angel Island, not far from the shores of Cape Light. It's said to harbor angels that help guide the lost, that sometimes lead them right back to where they began...

Liza Martin arrives on Angel Island to sell the inn she and her brother inherited from their aunt, so she can bolt back to her busy life in Boston. But back home awaits a broken marriage and an unstable career. The more time she spends on Angel Island, and with every local she meets, the more she finds herself enjoying the tranquility of the place. Her new friends don't want to see her sell the inn to developers who will ruin the island's charm. There is much for her to resolve before her departure- and it is going to take a band of angels to mend her broken wings and redirect her soul.

Traveling with the Dead
Down through the deathless centuries, the vampires had drunk human blood for sustenance and for sport. They preyed where they willed, for no mortal humans could resist their unclean powers. But now came the ultimate perversion, the unthinkable: someone was conscripting the vampires into the secret services of a foreign power.

No government agency or bureaucrat could control the Undead. The idea was absurd, as Dr. James Asher knew all too well.

Years in His Majesty's service had taught Asher the finer points of espionage. And he knew the secrets of the vampires--a familiarity hard-won in unwilling service to Don Simon Ysidro, oldest and most subtle of the hunters of the London night. What Asher didn't know was why one of England's established vampires would risk everything to travel across the European continent at the behest of a ruthless spymaster.

But he could see the terrifying potential of such an unholy alliance...

Essential Self, Essential Style
What happens when three leading innovators in their respective fields collaborate? They create an entirely new model of who we are, how we can live and how we can dress. Hurley and Donson, innovators in personality systems, and Parsons, a leading creator of style systems, join forces to give you a new, simple yet profoundly accurate way to identify your Essential Self and from it create your own Essential Style.

Every human being has three intelligences: thinking, feeling and doing. (This is the perennial teaching of cultures east and west now confirmed by modern brain research.) There are three corresponding styles: Elegant, Traditional and Sporty.

There are also three kinds of people: Go-getters (doers and thinkers), Networkers (feelers and doers), and Introspectives (thinkers and feelers).

What does each group need to discover its Essential Self and express its Essential Style? This book answers this question in an enjoyable way that penetrates to the heart of the issue. Easy to read, it demonstrates how our outer expression can support the growth of our inner essence.

Essential Self is who you really are. Essential Style is the attitude, communication, lifestyle and look that flow from the real you. When our outer expression is aligned with our inner essence, we are in union with self, others and the universe.

The key to this process is discovering, exploring and activating your hidden resource! Each of us has built our present lives on two-thirds of our Essential Self. The final third, lying dormant in us, is a hidden resource of vitality and meaning. Restoring this final third to its rightful place in our lives adds hope for overcoming obstacles and experiencing life's deepest pleasures. Because our hidden resource is one of the three centers of intelligence, it expresses itself in one of the three classic styles. Supporting our latent intelligence by expressing and using its corresponding classic style is a fun project that has remarkable effects in our lives.

Called to Life
How do I find fulfillment in life? How do I obtain happiness? How do I fully become a man or woman? Despite a multitude of self-help books in recent years, these eternal questions have become increasingly urgent in today's directionless world.

Author Jacques Philippe provides some answers. In his new book, Called to Life, he explains that a complete and fulfilled life is much more assured when we stop trying to chart our own course, when we realize that we are essentially creatures called by God. He goes on to describe where and how these calls take place: the events of life, the Word of God in Scripture, and interior motions of the Holy Spirit. Learning to recognize and follow these calls is what leads to a happy and full life.

Called to Life includes a special section on how to read Sacred Scripture prayerfully (Lectio Divina), making this a timely source of inspiration and guidance following the recommendations of Pope Benedict XVI and the 2008 Synod of Bishops on the Word of God.

The King of the Golden River
Play script by James Still. Adapted from the book by John Ruskin. Part fairy tale, part Dickens -- a mysterious story that explores how greed and cruelty threaten to destroy the Golden River and surrounding valley and how kindness (not magic) finally restores it to its natural beauty. Cast of 6 actors to play 16 characters. Two suggestive interiors, one exterior. Can tour.

In a prologue where an insensitive tour guide proudly points out nuclear reactors, complex highway systems and industrial technology, an old man angrily protests the Golden River's current environmental ruin. Although most of the tourists dismiss the old man, one young boy lingers and proves to be a skeptical but active audience for the old man's tale of a young boy who long ago conquered his brothers' cruelties and saved the Golden River through his compassion. The heart of the play is the boy's adventure story that includes surprising characters such as the Southwest Wind and the King who turns the evil brothers into Dark Stones. The original production at the California Theatre Center was set in the American Southwest in the 1800s and theatrically used native American rituals, sounds and images.

David Copperfield
Charles John Huffam Dickens (Portsmouth, Inglaterra, 7 de febrero de 1812 – Gads Hill Place, Inglaterra, 9 de junio de 1870) fue un famoso novelista inglés, uno de los más conocidos de la literatura universal, y el principal de la era victoriana. Fue maestro del género narrativo, al que imprimió ciertas dosis de humor e ironía, practicando a la vez una aguda crítica social. En su obra destacan las descripciones de gente y lugares, tanto reales como imaginarios. Utilizó en ocasiones el seudónimo Boz.

Críticas posteriores, tales como las de George Gissing y G. K. Chesterton, defendieron y aclamaron su dominio de la lengua inglesa como inigualable, sus personajes como inolvidables, y en gran medida su profunda sensibilidad social. No obstante, también recibió críticas de sus mejores lectores —George Henry Lewes, Henry James, y Virginia Woolf entre ellos— los cuales achacaron ciertos defectos a sus obras, como el sentimentalismo efusivo, acontecimientos irreales y personajes grotescos.

Sus novelas y relatos cortos disfrutaron de gran popularidad en vida del escritor, y aún hoy se editan continuamente. Dickens escribió novelas por entregas, el formato usual en la ficción en su época, por la simple razón de que no todo el mundo poseía los recursos económicos necesarios para comprar un libro, y cada nueva entrega de sus historias era esperada con gran entusiasmo por sus lectores, nacionales e internacionales. Dickens fue y sigue siendo venerado como un ídolo literario por escritores de todo el mundo.

A Tale of Two Cities
A Tale of Two Cities (1859) is a novel by Charles Dickens, set in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution. With well over 200 million copies sold, it ranks among the most famous works in the history of fictional literature. The novel depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralized by the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution, the corresponding brutality demonstrated by the revolutionaries toward the former aristocrats in the early years of the revolution, and many unflattering social parallels with life in London during the same time period. It follows the lives of several protagonists through these events. The most notable are Charles Darnay and Sydney Carton. Darnay is a French once-aristocrat who falls victim to the indiscriminate wrath of the revolution despite his virtuous nature, and Carton is a dissipated British barrister who endeavours to redeem his ill-spent life out of his unrequited love for Darnay's wife, Lucie Manette. The 45-chapter novel was published in 32 weekly instalments in Dickens' new literary periodical titled All the Year Round. In May 1859 through December 1859, Dickens also republished the chapters as eight monthly sections in green covers. Dickens' previous novels had appeared only as monthly instalments. The first weekly instalment of A Tale of Two Cities ran in the first issue of All the Year Round on 30 April 1859. The last ran thirty-one weeks later, on 25 November.
