<b>The #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling guide to decluttering your home and the inspiration for the hit Netflix show <i>Tidying Up with Marie Kondo</i>.</b><br /><br /> Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles?<br /><br /> Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you’ll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever. The KonMari Method, with its revolutionary category-by-category system, leads to lasting results. In fact, none of Kondo’s clients have lapsed (and she still has a three-month waiting list). <br /><br /> With detailed guidance for determining which items in your house “spark joy” (and which don’t), this international bestseller featuring Tokyo’s newest lifestyle phenomenon will help you clear your clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home—and the calm, motivated mindset it can inspire.

<b>A faded farmhouse, a devoted dog. One special summer.</b><br /><br />Melinda is already at a crossroads when the “for rent” sign beckons her down a dusty gravel lane. Facing forty, single and downsized from her stellar career at a big-city ad agency, she’s struggling to start over when a phone call brings her home to rural Iowa. <br /><br />It's not long before she moves to the country, takes on a rundown farm and its headstrong animals, and lands behind the counter of her family’s hardware store in the community of Prosper, whose motto is “The Great Little Town That Didn’t.” And just like the sprawling garden she tends under the summer sun, Melinda begins to thrive. But when storm clouds arrive on her horizon, can she hold on to the new life she's worked so hard to create?<br /><br />Filled with memorable characters, from a big-hearted farm dog to the weather-obsessed owner of the local co-op, “Growing Season” celebrates the twists and turns of small-town life. Discover the heartwarming series that’s filled with new friends, fresh starts and second chances.<br />

<b>In this “little gem” (</b><b><i>Washington Independent Review of Books), </i></b><b>Pulitzer Prize–winning columnist and <i>New York Times</i>bestselling author Dave Barry learns </b><b>how to age happily from his old but joyful dog, Lucy.</b><BR><BR>As Dave Barry turns seventy—not happily—he realizes that his dog, Lucy, is dealing with old age far better than he is. She has more friends, fewer worries, and way more fun. So Dave decides to figure out how Lucy manages to stay so happy, to see if he can make his own life happier by doing the things she does (except for drinking from the toilet). He reconnects with old friends and tries to make new ones—which turns out to be a struggle, because Lucy likes people a lot more than he does. And he gets back in touch with two ridiculous but fun groups from his past: the Lawn Rangers, a group of guys who march in parades pushing lawnmowers and twirling brooms (alcohol is involved), and the Rock Bottom Remainders, the world’s oldest and least-talented all-author band. With each new lesson, Dave riffs hilariously on dogs, people, and life in general, while also pondering Deep Questions, such as when it’s okay to lie. (Answer: when scallops are involved.)<BR> <BR><i>Lessons from Lucy</i> shows readers a new side to Dave Barry that’s “touching and sentimental, but there’s still a laugh on every page” (<i>Sacramento Bee)</i>. The master humorist has written a witty and affable guide to joyous living at any age.

<h3>SWEET MEMORIES MADE OF MURDER--<br />PASTRY, PIZZA, AND A POISONOUS PILL…</h3><br />Recovering from financial ruin and the murder of her husband—she’s not saying which was worse— Kiki Lowenstein’s getting her life back on track as a professional scrapbooker, in charge of a huge event at the Missouri Botanical Garden. But <b>during the scrapbooking soiree, somebody has an allergic reaction, and not to the plants.</b><br /><br />As luck would have it, it just happens to be someone Kiki’s allergic to—scrapbooking rival Yvonne Grayson, whose epi pen is mysteriously empty. <b>As planned—by someone—the victim goes into anaphylactic shock and dies, right in front of half the hobbyists in the state of Missouri.</b><br /><br />Bad press for Kiki’s scrapbooking cred! Fortunately, Detective Chad Detweiler’s on the case—Kiki’s crush from the late spousal unpleasantness. <b>He’s been bringing her pizza, hold the romance, and now it's pizza, hold the intel</b>—Kiki’s about to gain weight without even getting kissed—or solving the case herself.<br /><br /><b>But he might have let slip just enough to go on…Yvonne was allergic to aspirin and it was found in her favorite pastry. A sweet and healing tidbit? </b><br /><br />The fun of this one, of course, is in the scrapbooking lore and fiery rivalry between Kiki and her scrapbooking frenemies. You’ll find yourself rooting for the sweet and resilient Widow Lowenstein, who’s determined as ever to protect her complicated but wholesome suburban life. <b>Author Slan weaves pro scrapbook sleuthing tips effortlessly into the plot, making the reader feel like they’re getting a crash course in cropping and hunting down a depraved murderer.

Her writing is much more assured this time out, and the book is filled with characters who we care about." <i>―Booklist</i><br /><br />"Slan has written another enthralling, interesting, fast-paced mystery. I look forward to the further adventures of Kiki and her crew." <i>―Reviewing the Evidence</i><br /><br /> "Topically relevant and chock-full of side stories." </i>-- Library Journal</i><br /><br />"(Slan's books are) a cut above the usual craft-themed cozy." <i>-- Publisher's Weekly</i><br />
