The Diet Dropout's Guide to Natural Weight Loss - Stan Spencer, PhD
Genre - Health / Fitness
Rating - PG
4.8 (20 reviews)
Free until 19 January 2013

This book isn't about the latest celebrity diet, wonder food, or miracle supplement. It's about creating a personalized weight loss plan—your own easiest path to naturally thin. While you can lose weight with almost any diet, keeping the weight off is much more difficult, requiring permanent changes in eating and exercise habits. This book provides a science-based approach for making those changes in a way that works best for you, without wasting time, money, or effort.

Dr. Spencer explains why we gain weight and why the fat lost by dieting almost always comes back. He then presents an array of practical weight loss tools for controlling emotional eating, calming cravings, boosting metabolism, and improving nutrition and exercise. In the final chapter he has you create a natural weight loss plan based on your unique set of needs, abilities, and preferences. Simple recipes are provided for weight loss foods that reduce cravings and prolong satisfaction. 

What this book offers is a solid approach to weight loss—self-directed, gradual, and lasting—in contrast to the quick but fleeting weight loss offered by most one-size-fits-all diet plans. 

Magnus Opum
Magnus Opum - Jonathan Gould
Genre - Humor, Satire, Fantasy
Rating - PG
4.4 (21 reviews)
Free until 18 January 2013
A story about a little person in a very big world.
Magnus Mandalora never thought he would leave the safe confines of the small homely village of Lower Kertoob. He certainly never expected to end up in the middle of a long-running war between the saintly Cherines and the beastly Glurgs. But when circumstance places him in such a dubious position, he finds himself on a rollicking adventure where nothing is quite as it seems.
Magnus Opum is an epic fantasy that's slightly skewed - Tolkien with a twist.

Snack Time: Lite and Tasty Snack Recipes (a Scrumptious Low-Calorie Recipes Cookbook)
Snack Time - Joan Holcomb
Genre - Cookbook
Rating - G

A lot of excess calories can come from between-meal or after-meal snacks. The USDA has recommended that no more than 10% of someone's daily calories come from snack foods (or recreational eating; that is, food eaten just for fun and not for nutrition). 

Of course, we call want to get the most out of our snack foods, and some snacks can be nutritional and satisfying at the same time. Other foods (often called junk foods) have little or no nutritional value…we just eat them because they taste good. 

Nonetheless, lower-calorie versions of even junk foods exist. Making food at home can decrease the calorie count or fat content significantly, eliminate a lot of unnecessary additives and preservatives, and enhance the flavor and portion size. 

In this cookbook, every effort has been made to find snack foods that are filling but have fewer calories and/or less fat than their commercial versions. You may even enjoy these more than ones you buy in the store! 

Important note: this is not a cookbook with zero calorie (or near-zero calorie) snacks. Those looking for such snacks may be better off buying 100-calorie packs of snack foods from the store. The very nature of these snack foods and their ingredients mean that the calorie count will never be zero, or even close to it. 

Also, these recipes are not necessarily low-carb. Some have higher carbs because they include sugars, but in a lot of cases they have higher carbs due to ingredients such as milk, yogurt, or fruit, which are GOOD, healthy carbs. 

Disclaimer: The contents of this cookbook may not be construed as a medical diagnosis, treatment, advice, claim, or substitute for a physician's care. Consult a physician or other health care provider before starting a weight loss or exercise program. Joan's results are not typical, and she cannot guarantee you will have the same results. Your results are up to you!

A novel about the bonds of friendship, the power of forgiveness, and the lessons you learn when you let go.

Sophie Wharton doesn’t like losing control, especially of her life. She’s always been the girl who’s kept it together—the girl with a charming boyfriend, a lively social life, and plans to start her own bakery. Life is great for Sophie a few years out of college in Seattle…or so she thinks.

Then a series of events start to turn Sophie’s perfectly ordered world upside down. 

After three years, her boyfriend suddenly decides to call it quits. Her close camaraderie of girlfriends is starting to fall apart. Secrets are exposed. And when she thinks things couldn’t get any worse, Sophie learns that one of her friends is fighting a devastating battle. 

Now living with her best friend Claire, Sophie struggles with learning to forgive or forget those who break hearts, while trying to accept that there are some situations she cannot control. But is there still a light at the end of the tunnel? Can a girl find the “good” in the “bad”?

This is a heartfelt story about what happens when friendships take different paths and when life doesn’t exactly go according to plan. It’s a story about betrayal, forgiveness, acceptance, and letting go. About what happens when girlfriends break hearts.

Rating - PG
4.6 (11 reviews)
Free until 20 January 2013
A collection of four extraordinary stories, not one of which travels a predictable route.
On a weekend jaunt with her parents, a 15-year-old girl shoplifts from the wrong souvenir shop. The consequences aren’t immediate, but a disconcerted Frankie Spitz soon discovers how overpowering an unexpected punishment can be.

Marleen lives an isolated existence except for work and her best friend. “Little Sister” follows a day in Marleen’s life, as revelations surface and things that seemed obvious at the start begin to blur.
A glimmer appears in the center of a boy’s bedroom, not quite a ghost, not quite ANYthing that Tommy can name. Except that he knows it’s a girl, and that she’s trying her best to communicate with him. In “Catching Lisette”, Tommy chases explanations for his phantom visitor, never anticipating the beguiling answers to his questions.

The fourth tale in this 22,000-word collection is “Photo Finish.” Rosalie Turner’s about to field the biggest curveball life’s ever thrown at her! Mysterious strangers are showing up in her photographs; are the reasons for this rooted in her past? In the Bad Thing that Rosalie never meant to do 19 years before? Or is there a simpler explanation? Rosalie, along with her daughter Jenna, tries to massage clarity out of an enigma, and ends up exploring not only her past, but also her present life. Events conspire to overtake her speculations, though, and Rosalie ends up understanding all too much.
A fabulous read with well-drawn characters and plots. These are four thrilling stories!
