<h3><strong>#1 Amazon New Release ─ Over fifty, retiring and childless?</strong></h3><p><strong>Are you among the fifteen million Americans over fifty and childless? Solo aging gracefully and a happy retirement can be yours!</strong></p><p><strong>Baby Boomers retiring:</strong> American Baby boomers are aging and fifteen million of them never had children. Who will take care of them? Unprecedented in U.S. history, this demographic will create challenges for these individuals as well as for society. <em>Essential Retirement Planning for Solo Agers</em> is a passionate exploration of the path ahead for “Solo Agers.” It includes choices in housing, relationships, legal arrangements, finances and more – and urges the solo ager to plan for the future as though their life and well-being depended on it, as author Sara Zeff Geber believes it will!</p><p><strong>Solo Agers aging well:</strong> In <em>Essential Retirement Planning for Solo Agers</em>, Sara Zeff Geber, a Ph.D. in Counseling and Human Behavior and a Certified Retirement Coach, coins the term “Solo Ager” to refer to the segment of society that either does not have adult children or is single and believes they will be on their own as they grow older. However, it’s not just the Solo Ager that can learn from this book. Financial advisors, elder law and estate attorneys, senior care managers, and others whose clientele is on the far side of sixty will benefit as well.</p><p><strong>Retirement and good living:</strong> With a compelling and readable style, Gerber takes her readers on a journey, starting with the choice for childlessness and why so many boomers were able to make that decision. She then reviews the role of adult children in an aging parent’s world and suggests ways in which Solo Agers can mitigate the absence of adult children by relationship building and rigorous planning for their future. Geber shares her expertise on what constitutes a fulfilling older life and how Solo Agers can maximize their opportunities for financial security, physical health, meaning and purpose in the second half of life and, finally, planning for the end game.</p><p><strong>Retirement guide:</strong> Through stories and narrative, the author explores housing choices, relationships, and building a support system. You will learn about:</p><ul><li>different levels of care and independence in various types of living arrangements</li><li>how to initiate discussions among friends and relatives about end-of-life treatment</li><li>‘what if’ scenarios</li><li>who to talk to about legal and financial decisions</li></ul><p>Geber's stories of Solo Agers are gleaned from friends and clients in a variety of circumstances. Each one demonstrates decisions and choices these people have made and illustrates the importance of thinking ahead and taking action now.</p><p><em>Essential Retirement Planning for Solo Agers</em> is pragmatic and provocative, but softened with humor. Many of the chapters include worksheets or checklists, encouraging the reader to go beyond imagining and begin his or her own planning for the voyage ahead.</p>

<DIV><P>Founded in 1971, <I>The Witches’ Almanac</I> is a witty, literate, and sophisticated publication that appeals to general readers as well as hard-core Wiccans. At one level, it is a pop reference that will fascinate anyone interested in folklore, mythology, and culture; at another, it is the most sophisticated and wide-ranging annual guide available today for the mystic enthusiast.</P><P>Modeled after the <I>Old Farmers’ Almanac</I>, it includes information related to the annual moon calendar (weather forecasts and horoscopes), as well as legends, rituals, herbal secrets, mystic incantations, interviews, and many a curious tale of good and evil. Although it is an annual publication, its subject matter is timeless—only about 15 percent of the content is specific to the date range of each issue.</P><P>The theme of Issue 37 (Spring 2018–Spring 2019) is the magic of plants. Also included are the following articles: “Sigil Witchery,” “The Witch of Hadley,” “SeerStones,” “Astrological Plant Remedies,” “Pomba Gira,” “Coffin Ring,” and “Coefficient of Weirdness, Part 2.”</P></DIV>

Ken Jennings’s Trivia Almanac is the ingeniously organized book where, for a change, the all-time Jeopardy! champ gets to ask the questions–and where every day of the year will give you the chance to test your trivia mettle.<br /><br />For example–February 21: In 1912, on this day, Teddy Roosevelt coined the political phrase “hat in the ring,” so Ken Jennings fires off a series of “ring” questions. What two NFL quarterbacks have four Super Bowl rings each?* What rings are divided by the Cassini Division?** Also on this date, in 1981, the “goth” music scene was born in London, so here’s a quiz on black-clad icons like Darth Vader, Johnny Cash, and Zorro. Do you know the secret identities of Ivanhoe’s Black Knight*** or Men in Black’s Agent M****? <br /><br />In this ultimate book for trivia buffs and other assorted know-it-alls, the 365 entries feature “This Day in History” factoids, trivia quizzes, and questions categorized by Jennings as “Easy,” “Hard,” and “Yeah, Good Luck.” Topics cover every subject under the sun, from paleontology to mixology, sports feats to Bach suites, medieval popes to daytime soaps. This addictive gathering of facts, oddities, devilishly clever quizzes, and other flights of fancy will make each day a fun and intriguing new challenge.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

This early work on Martin Luther is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It details the life of the monk responsible for translating the Bible from Latin into German and for inspiring the Lutheran movement. This is a fascinating work and is thoroughly recommended for anyone interested in the history of European religion.<br />This book is about the life of Martin Luther and his continuing impact on the world. Luther is raised in a conservative and disciplined home and goes on to become a monk without his father's initial blessing. Luther does everything a monk should do. He is committed to prayer, fasting, vigils, preaching, and teaching to the point of exhaustion. He continues his education and goes on to become a leader in the Catholic Church.
