In Search of Lost Time [volumes 1 to 7] by Marcel Proust (LHN Books) 4.4 Stars (208 Reviews)    Price verified 45 minutes ago

"'In Search of Lost Time' is widely recognized as the major novel of the twentieth century." -- Harold Bloom "At once the last great classic of French epic prose tradition and the towering precursor of the 'nouveau roman'." -- Bengt Holmqvist "Proust so titillates my own desire for expression that I can hardly set out the sentence. Oh if I could write like that!" -- Virginia Woolf "The greatest fiction to date." -- W. Somerset Maugham "Proust is the greatest novelist of the 20th century." -- Graham Greene On the surface a traditional "Bildungsroman" describing the narrator's journey of self-discovery, this huge and complex book is also a panoramic and richly comic portrait of France in the author's lifetime, and a profound meditation on the nature of art, love, time, memory and death.

The Boys from Old Florida: Inside Gator Nation by Buddy Martin (Sports Publishing) 3.4 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 45 minutes ago

In The Boys from Old Florida, Buddy Martin takes the reader beneath the surface of Florida football as, without bias or sugar coating, he skillfully excavates the truths behind "The Gator Nation." In this book, Martin, a Florida native, has chronicled the real stories of Gator coaches and players through their own eyes and in their words over a 55-year period since 1950 -- and not all are valentines. The school asked all but one of the coaches interviewed to leave or move up. Some players became estranged or never really felt appreciated. Yet, others are forever grateful for their experience as Gator players and feel a sense of brotherhood. Liberating moments such as the arrival of Ray Graves come to life through the words of somebody who experienced it firsthand. Martin's fresh investigations have bolstered his sharp memory of those moments as they unfolded, including Graves's firing after a fairy tale season with his "Super Sophs."

Facing Mariano Rivera: Players Recall the Greatest Relief Pitcher Who Ever Lived by David Fischer (Sports Publishing) 4.3 Stars (6 Reviews)    Price verified 29 minutes ago

The all-time career leader in saves, with 652, Mariano Rivera is one of the greatest professional athletes in history. Since taking over the closer's role for the New York Yankees in 1997, until his retirement in 2013, Rivera saved 30 or more games in every season but one. In addition, he has an astonishing MLB record 42 postseason saves, with 11 of them coming in the World Series. After 19 seasons in the Major Leagues, his preeminence among relief pitchers is assumed and his induction into Cooperstown assured. And he accomplished it all, mostly, with one devastating pitch: his signature cut fastball. As third baseman Corey Koskie put it: “You knew what pitch [Rivera's] going to throw, a cutter... You start to swing at the pitch and the next thing you know, the ball explodes your bat. I tried multiple things hoping to figure out a way get the barrel [of the bat] on one of his pitches... Nothing worked." Far from a conventional biography, Facing Mariano Rivera offers perspectives ...

Pirates By the Numbers: A Complete Team History of the Bucs By Uniform Number by David Finoli (Sports Publishing) 4.7 Stars (11 Reviews)    Price verified 45 minutes ago

When the National League decided on June 22, 1932, to place numbers on the backs of uniforms to make it easier for fans to follow their favorite players, no one knew at the time just what a landmark decision it would turn out to be. In fact, when the Pittsburgh Pirates donned numbered jerseys eight days later against the St. Louis Cardinals at Forbes Field, the uniform numbers were so unimportant on the team's list of priorities that it was second billing to the main event of that day: the first Ladies Day in Pirates history. The secondary event would turn out to be an iconic moment in baseball history, as players are now closely associated with their uniform numbers. For example, two Hall of Famers for the Pirates wore the number 21: Arky Vaughan and Roberto Clemente. Both ironically died young while trying to help others, and 21 has become the most sacred number in Steel City sports lore. Pirates by the Numbers tells the tales of these players and more in a format that will ...

“It took me a day to learn [the knuckleball] and a lifetime to learn how to throw it for a strike." This quote, by pitcher and coach Charlie Hough, is the best way to understand baseball's most baffling and mysterious pitch. Not even the best practitioners of the art of throwing a knuckleball know where it is going most of the time. As a pitch that floats and comes into the plate in what appears to be slow motion, it is miraculous that those who employ the pitch don't get creamed all over the park by batters who seem to know that it's coming. Including interviews with Hall of Famer Phil Niekro, former All-Stars Wilbur Wood and Tim Wakefield, as well as other famed knuckleballers, Lew Freedman (Clouds over the Goalpost, A Summer to Remember), breaks down the history of this infamous pitch, which it seems can be traced back to Chicago White Sox pitcher Ed Cicotte, as well as its effect on baseball as a whole.

Charles Albert “The Old Roman" Comiskey was a larger-than-life figure—a man who had precision in his speech and who could work a room with handshakes and smiles. While he has been vilified in film as a rotund cheapskate and the driving force, albeit unknowingly, behind the actions of the 1919 White Sox, who threw the World Series (nicknamed the “Black Sox" scandal), that statement is far from the truth. In his five decades involved in baseball, Comiskey loved the sport through and through. It was his passion, his life blood, and once he was able to combine his love for the game with his managerial skills, it was the complete package for him. There was no other alternative. He brought the White Sox to Chicago in 1900 and was a major influential force in running the American League from its inception.From changing the way the first base position was played, to spreading the concept of “small ball" as a manager, to incorporating the community in his team's persona while he was an ...

Seventeen-year-old Rachel Ferguson is trying to get struck by lightning. Hopefully it will lead to finding her soul mate, like it did for her mother. And then maybe her mom will be as devoted to her as she is to her lightning strike survivors group.

The Duke of Bannerman Prep by Katie A. Nelson (Sky Pony) 4.8 Stars (46 Reviews)    Price verified 45 minutes ago

Words are weapons. Facts can be manipulated. And nothing is absolute—especially right and wrong. Tanner McKay is at Bannerman Prep for one reason: to win. The elite school recruited him after he argued his public school's debate team to victory last year, and now Bannerman wants that championship trophy. Debate is Tanner's life—his ticket out of scrimping and saving and family drama, straight to a scholarship to Stanford and a new, better future. When he's paired with the prep school playboy everyone calls the Duke, Tanner's straightforward plans seem as if they're going off the rails. The Duke is Bannerman royalty, beloved for his laissez-faire attitude, crazy parties, and the strings he so easily pulls. And a total no-show when it comes to putting in the work to win. As Tanner gets sucked into the Duke's flashy world, the thrill of the high life and the adrenaline of the edge becomes addictive. A small favor here and there seems like nothing in exchange for getting everything ...

What would it feel like to never forget? Or to have a memory stolen? Seventeen-year-old Genesis Lee has never forgotten anything. As one of the Mementi—a small group of genetically enhanced humans—Gena remembers everything with the help of her Link bracelets, which preserve them perfectly. But Links can be stolen, and six people have already lost their lives to a memory thief, including Gena's best friend. Anyone could be next.

Giants vs. Dodgers: The Coast-to-Coast History of the Rivalry Heard ?Round the World by Joe Konte (Sports Publishing) 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 17 minutes ago

Games between the Dodgers and Giants are never just another day at the ballpark. Dating back to the late nineteenth century—when the teams embodied the competitive spirit of rival metropolises of New York and Brooklyn—the Giants-Dodgers rivalry gained intensity throughout the early twentieth century. The cheering and jeering continued unabated until 1957, when the clubs backed the moving vans up to the Polo Grounds and Ebbets Field, and took their rivalry to new venues in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Indeed, Brooklyn-New York baseball was a tough act to follow, but the West Coast version didn't take long to fire up the emotions. Only six games into the first West Coast season, the clubs had their first beanball dustup. The venue had changed but the venom remained, and the rivalry became author Joe Konte's obsession. Fifty-eight years ago, he attended one of the first Giants-Dodgers games ever played outside of New York. A longtime newspaper editor and baseball fiend, Konte ...

The Dividing: The Adamic Trilogy Book 1 by Devin Downing (Devil Down Books L.L.C.) 4.9 Stars (24 Reviews)    Price verified 45 minutes ago

Adamic is the language of the Gods. When spoken, it has the power to create worlds, to raise the dead, to make man as God. Fortunately, no one has spoken it in thousands of years. The only remnants are the written spells. The people of Cavernum depend on these spells. They're etched into the city walls, fending off the feeders -- deadly creatures with a thirst for human blood. They kill and consume any caught beyond the walls. Yet for the lower class, Cavernum isn't much safer. Children starve, and illness runs rampant. In an effort to maintain order, all children turning 18 are subject to The Dividing -- a city-wide competition for the highest paying guilds. Those who aren't accepted are sent to the fields, condemned to a life of slave-labor. Princess Roselyn Malik has trained her entire life for The Dividing. She's guaranteed a spot in the royal orchestra, but equalist rebels threaten her throne. To secure her crown, Rose must acquire the power and prestige associated with the ...
