Don Quixote has become so entranced by reading chivalric romances, that he determines to become a knight-errant himself. In the company of his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, his exploits blossom in all sorts of wonderful ways. While Quixote's fancy often leads him astray -- he tilts at windmills, imagining them to be giants -- Sancho acquires cunning and a certain sagacity. Sane madman and wise fool, they roam the world together, and together they have haunted readers' imaginations for nearly four hundred years.
With its experimental form and literary playfulness, Don Quixote generally has been recognized as the first modern novel. The book has had enormous influence on a host of writers, from Fielding and Sterne to Flaubert, Dickens, Melville, and Faulkner, who reread it once a year, "just as some people read the Bible."

He was the first boy I ever loved -- and I mean capital L -- Loved. I would have twirled around him in a cloud of confetti, kissing small puppies and waving at the loveless girls still waiting for their princes, for the rest of my life if he'd let me.
But he didn't.
Isn't that how these things go? Girl loves boy, boy turns out to be a lying, stupid jerk who rips her heart out and hands it over to a four-year-old T-ball team for batting practice.
But that was practically a lifetime ago. Well, six years ago, really.
I've moved on.
And that's exactly what I have to keep reminding myself because now he's back. Just waltzing through my town -- my life -- like barely any time has passed.
It doesn't matter that he's still the handsomest man I've ever laid eyes on. I don't care that he seems to be everywhere I turn, making my heart flutter like a traitorous hummingbird. And I definitely don't care that for some reason he wants to explain exactly what happened all those years ago.

After learning that she is not only a Firebird, but also half Nunnehi--the Cherokee equivalent to fairy--Tessa is forced to fight for her life against a conjurer determined to kill her, Tribal Elders trying to manipulate her, a crazier-than-a-bat mother, wolves, snakes, and one pissed off ghost.
Worst still, she's caught between a gorgeous blue-eyed cop and a Nunnehi body guard who she can't decide if she wants to throttle or kiss. Good thing she was raised by two tough Southern ladies.

As a kid with a working mom, I was practically brought up on slow cooked food. I'm not complaining, I probably had the most delicious childhood in the whole world. I loved my mom's recipes so much that I decided to become a professional cook, and the Crockpot will always have a special spot in my heart. All slow cooker recipes have one thing on their side: TIME!! Normally cooked foods cannot compare to slow cooked foods when it comes to flavor and texture.
Of all the recipes my mother passed down to me, the chicken recipes were one of my favorites. That's why I want to dedicate a whole book to Slow Cooker Chicken Recipes. Pretty much every chicken recipe you can think of can be cooked using the slow cooker, and this book is the written proof of this fact. After trying out these recipes, you will not want to go back to conventional chicken recipes, EVER!!

Rebecca Stockdale had enough issues in her life; parents that hated her for the strange abilities that she had been born with, she was about to move away from her sister and only friend, Bev, and she had had a really bad date that would change her forever.
Just when she was about to escape the drama that she had always lived in, Richard, a vampyre, walked into her life and shattered her reality with one request; travel back in time to 1888 to stop a psychopathic vampyre bent on revenge and save the family she never knew she had.

A vow they set aside to protect the family that they had come to love, knowing that the outcome of that decision would be an eventual battle. A battle of decapitation and blood; a battle they may not survive.
She was leaving a life she would kill to get away from for a family she would gladly die to protect, but could she do it? Could ...

The images of those airplanes slamming into the NYC skyline like lawn darts playing on a constant loop on CNN. The attack had leant me a sense of purpose; I enlisted in the Army. Now here I was two years later, as far from Ashtabula as I could get, squinting in the dust and that godforsaken insane-colored sun.
It all seemed to be ...
