<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.

When Abigail Thomas’s husband, Rich, was hit by a car, his brain shattered. Subject to rages, terrors, and hallucinations, he must live the rest of his life in an institu­tion. He has no memory of what he did the hour, the day, the year before. This tragedy is the ground on which Abigail had to build a new life. How she built that life is a story of great courage and great change, of moving to a small country town, of a new family composed of three dogs, knitting, and friendship, of facing down guilt and discovering gratitude. It is also about her relationship with Rich, a man who lives in the eternal present, and the eerie poetry of his often uncanny perceptions. This wise, plainspoken, beautiful book enacts the truth Abigail discovered in the five years since the acci­dent: You might not find meaning in disaster, but you might, with effort, make something useful of it.

<b>The first ever practical, compassionate, and comprehensive guide to dying—and living fully until you do. </b><br /><br />“There is nothing wrong with you for dying,” palliative care doctor B.J. Miller and Shoshana Berger write in <i>A Beginner’s Guide to the End</i>. “Our ultimate purpose here isn’t so much to help you die as it is to free up as much life as possible until you do.”<br /> <br />Theirs is a clear-eyed and big-hearted action plan for approaching the end of life, written to help readers feel more in control of an experience that so often seems anything but controllable. Their book offers everything from step-by-step instructions for how to do your paperwork and navigate the healthcare system to answers to questions you might be afraid to ask your doctor, like whether or not sex is still okay when you’re sick. You’ll be walked through how to break the news to your employer, whether to share old secrets with your family, how to face friends who might not be as empathetic as you’d hoped, and to how to talk to your children about your will. (Don’t worry: if anyone gets snippy, it’ll likely be their spouses, not them.) There are also lessons for survivors, like how to shut down a loved one’s social media accounts, clean out the house, and write a great eulogy.<br /> <br />An honest, surprising, and detailed-oriented guide to the most universal of all experiences, <i>A Beginner’s Guide to the End</i> is the one book that everyone needs.

<b>You don't have to live overwhelmed by stuff--you can get rid of clutter for good!</b><br />While the world seems to be in love with the idea of tiny houses and minimalism, many of us simply can't purge it all and start from nothing. Yet a home with too much stuff is a home that is difficult to maintain, so where do we begin? Add in paralyzing emotional attachments and constant life challenges, and it can feel almost impossible to make real decluttering progress.<br />In <i>Decluttering at the Speed of Life</i>, decluttering expert and author Dana White identifies the mind-sets and emotional challenges that make it difficult to declutter. Then, in her signature humorous approach, she provides workable solutions to break through these struggles and get clutter out--for good!<br />But more than simply offering strategies, Dana dives deep into how to implement them, no matter the reader's clutter level or emotional resistance to decluttering. She helps identify procrasticlutter--the stuff that will get done eventually so it doesn't seem urgent--as well as how to make progress when there's no time to declutter.<br />Sections of the book include<br /><ul><li>Why You Need This Book (You Know Why)</li><li>Your Unique Home</li><li>Decluttering in the Midst of Real Life</li><li>Change Your Mind, Change Your Home</li><li>Breaking Through Your Decluttering Delusions</li><li>Working It Out Room by Room</li><li>Helping Others Declutter</li><li>Real Life Goes On (and On)</li></ul>As long as we're living and breathing, new clutter will appear.

<b>“Warms my soul… such a joy to read… like a breath of fresh air.” Jaffa Reads Too</b><br /><br /><h2>Meet Phoebe, who’s 28, and Laney, Dot and Maggie, who are 68, 78, and none of your business.</h2><br /><b>Together they'll prove that age doesn’t matter when it comes to friendship, togetherness and an unquenchable zest for life.</b><br /><br />The residents of the Happy Home for Ladies have a big problem. Terrence, the owner’s mean-spirited father, is about to move into their famously all-female senior living home. Far from coasting into their twilight years, these women have a lot of living to do. And they’re planning to do it where the toilet seats stay firmly <i>down</i>.<br /><br />The home’s chef, Phoebe, is desperate to help her friends plot to keep the all-women community that means so much to them. It’s become her life raft, too. Her job might be the only thing that finally makes her parents proud. If only Phoebe’s (probably hopeless) love, Nick, wasn’t lining up on the other side of the battle. <br /><br />The stakes couldn’t be higher for everyone. Unless the home’s owner can improve business by moving men in, he’s going to close it down. Then the women will lose everything. <br /><br /><b>Meet your new best friends in this gorgeous, uplifting and hilarious new romantic comedy with all the camaraderie of <i>The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel</i> and life-affirming joy of <i>The Rosie Project</i>.

Complete with demonstrative illustrations and photographs, <i>Small Space Living</i> offers more than one hundred space-saving ideas from Roberta Sandenbergh, a.k.a the Small Space Architect.<br /><br />Sandenbergh will introduce you to the idea of space opportunities—untapped areas in every home that can be expanded for storage and organizational purposes. A space opportunity might be as simple as using an empty space under a stairway or above a doorway or as complicated as dividing your entire apartment for rental income.<br /><br />Each chapter addresses a different kind of space opportunity area, including closets, corners, walls, windows, ceilings, and floors. In these areas, you will be inspired by Sandenbergh’s creative approaches to divided spaces, stacked spaces, empty spaces, mirrored spaces, and multipurpose furniture. <br /><br />Learn from the author’s stories of her own designs for “small-by-choice” homes—for herself and for her clients—in which she tried to make the best possible use of varied living spaces. Allow Sandenbergh to help you create more space-efficient and attractive areas in your home whether you live in a studio apartment, a tiny home, or a larger home that needs more of a cozy feel.

<p><strong>From one of the most respected figures in the dog rescue community come the harrowing, funny, and inspiring stories of nine incredible dogs that shaped her life.</strong></p><p></p><p></p><p>Tia Torres, beloved underdog advocate and star of Animal Planet's hit show <em>Pit Bulls & Parolees,</em> chronicles her roller-coaster life in this heartwarming memoir featuring some of her best-loved dogs. With inimitable honesty and characteristic brashness, Tia captures the spirit and heart of these intelligent and loving canines, while carrying us behind the scenes of her TV show, into the heart of post-Katrina New Orleans, onto the soundstages of Hollywood films, and even to the jungles of Sri Lanka.</p><strong><p></p></strong><p>Tia has devoted her life to shattering the stereotype that pit bulls are dangerous, vicious predators. As the top dog at the Villalobos Rescue Center in New Orleans, the largest pit bull rescue in the United States, she and her team have rescued, rehabilitated, and rehomed hundreds of animals that might otherwise have been destroyed. As she puts it, "Most of the stories in this book are about animals (and a few humans) that needed someone to believe in them and a purpose in order to show their true nobility." </p><p></p><p>Each dog Tia writes about here has overcome abuse, trauma, neglect, or just bad luck to become a stalwart, loving companion to Tia and her family. You'll meet<strong> </strong>Duke<strong>,</strong> whose intelligence and matinee-idol looks made him a star in movies and music videos; Junkyard Joe, whose single-minded passion for tennis balls was channeled into expertise as a drug-sniffing dog;<strong> </strong>Bluie<strong>,</strong> the unswerving protector of Tia's daughter Tania; and a host of other unforgettable canines. </p><p></p><em></em><p><em>My Life Among the Underdogs</em> is above all a love story--one that is sure to grip the heart of anyone who has ever loved a dog. <strong></strong></p>
