Last of the New


No Safe Secret by Fern Michaels. The cover has a lot of yellow. The cover looks like a 1970s romance.

Darkness by Karen Robards. This is all pink with some orange and the cursive text makes it look like a 1980s novel.


Infectious Madness: the surprising science of how we "catch" mental illness by Harriet A. Washington. Megan Abbott wrote a fine novel about "catching" hysterical illnesses, The Fever.

The First Year: Type 2 Diabetes: an essential guide for the newly diagnosed, third edition by Gretchen Baker. Covering diet, exercise importance, insurance, glucose testing, etc. I don't think Megan Abbott has written a diabetes book.

21 Days to Success with LinkedIn by Ron Sukenick and Ken Williams. A customer asked about this topic a couple weeks ago so I ordered this book.

Nolo's Essential Guide to Child Custody and Support, 3rd edition by Emily Doskow. I think Doskow writes a lot of these legal guides. Let me check ... yep, nine books to her name.

101 Great Answers to the Toughest Interview Questions by Ron Fry. Our other guides are dated and need replacement. Page 107 says, "How often do you get angry?"

The Marketing Plan handbook: develop big-picture marketing plans for pennies on the dollar, 2nd edition by Robert W. Bly. Page 203 says, "make a seemingly contradictory statement or promise."

The Angst of Adolescence: how to parent your teen (and live to laugh about it) by Sara Villenueva, PhD. Page 67 says, "This is a real problem."

Temperament Tools: working with your child's inborn traits, revised edition by Helen Neville and Diane Clark Johnson. Cute children on the cover.

101 Smart Questions to Ask on Your Interview by Ron Fry. Same author, different book.

Body Weight Workouts for Men: 75 anytime, anywhere exercises to build a better body by Sean Bartram. Three levels of difficulty with many photographs of guys doing exercises.

Going to Court: an introduction to the U.S. Justice System by Ursula Furi-Perry. Easy to read guide written by a lawyer from Massachusetts.
