Invasion From Fred
Joey is as angry as a 12-year-old boy can be. He's angry because someone just hit a home run off his best fastball. He seeks the solitude of the woods to cool off. While there, he suddenly finds himself chatting with a very strange being. The conversation leads him into a number of adventures involving his grandmother, his father, his Congressional Representative, strip mining, major corporations, bellicose felines, and finding your identity, all of which lead to the brink of an Invasion from Fred.

Twin Willows: A Novel
Graduating from her prim Philadelphia finishing school, Anna Willow McKnight eagerly heads west to the wilds of the Kentucky territory to see her father and visit the place her lovely Delaware Indian mother, who died in childbirth, had called home. It is there, too, that the chestnut-haired beauty will be reunited with her beloved Stuart, the brave soldier-turned-schoolteacher, whose kisses ignite her with overwhelming desire.

Two Mississippi (One Mississippi Book 2)
An historical novel that captures the struggles of Americans at the height of the Great Depression, the racial conflict wrapped within the labor movement of the day, and the effect that blatant racism, plentiful guns, and the end of prohibition had on Kathryn's life and on the places she traveled.

American Legends: The Three Stooges (Charles Rivers edition)
The Three Stooges had several lineups over the decades, but two of them are most closely associated with the act. Two of the Howard brothers, Moe and Shemp, had their origins in 1920s vaudeville along with Larry Fine, but after Shemp quit, he was replaced by his younger brother Curly. Moe, Larry and Curly quickly became a hit in comedy shorts on screen, and even as other similar acts like Abbot & Costello went on to make full length films, the Stooges continued to star in shorts, producing the iconic scenes that everyone associates with them, from Larry asking what he did wrong to Moe trying to hit Curly and Curly's efforts to block him. Whether the boys were inept plumbers in A Plumbing We Will Go or unable to become gentlemen in The Hoi Polloi, the routine usually revolved around their humorously incompetent performances in every conceivable walk of life, with each setting making the act feel fresh even though viewers knew what was likely to happen in each circumstance. Although the Stooges were at their peak in the 1930s and early 1940s, the act continued almost right up until the death of Moe, the last one left. Curly, widely considered the most popular Stooge, had suffered a debilitating stroke that left him unable to perform after 1946, and Shemp returned until his death in 1955. Moe and Larry carried on with other teammates, including a "Fake Shemp" and Curly Joe, but no matter how often they tried to recapture the magic of the old lineups, the Stooges' heyday was over, at least when it came to original material. All told, their career spanned over 200 films, a heavy majority of which were shorts.

A link to the Charles Rivers books, priced low to high for those who are interested. Several short historical books and biographies.

After attending the funeral of my 26-year-old talented and beautiful friend this week who was loved by so many, voting my posts down just because you don't like me is the least of my worries. You don't even know me. I hope you actually do something else with your life besides wasting all your time.

Mama B - A Time to Love (Book 3)
Mama B was supposed to be helping people at the community food pantry, but Eunice needs more than just a bag full of canned goods. Though Eunice has plenty money, she can't seem to manage what matters most in life. Maybe if Eunice stopped all the "cigarette-ment" (as nosy church member Henrietta says) she might turn out all right.

Daisy's Mum says:
Good afternoon everybody,

Miss Annie - so sorry to hear your sad news about your friend. I am not able to visit the post every day but when I do I have a personal rule on voting: I positive vote any poster who lists a book that I take and I only negative vote authors trying to promote their own books on this thread. I don't know anyone on this thread but would like to say this to you; as you've very unfortunately discovered, life is extremely fragile and far too short - don't worry about what others think. I appreciate all contributions to this thread even if the books aren't always to my taste it shows the generosity of people prepared to give up their time for others.

I totally agree Daisy's mum. I am grateful to anyone who lists books on this forum, especially the freebies, but all others as well. It is always a kind gesture when someone puts lists on here for the benefit of others who for whatever reason do not have time or inclination to look for them themselves. There will always be someone out there wanting to be petty and silly for the sake of it, they are not worth the time of day. Thanks to all contributors. Anne

That link is one of Simon's early songs with photos i took of their band. Simon is the blond one, the cheeky, funny, mad one. It was his final gig, and it was a full house. Overflowing. Standing room only. After the service people ran outside and lit cigarettes which made me smile. Just like every gig i've ever been to. Everyone sniffed and sobbed. And as we watched them put him in the hearse I kept thinking, I can't believe Simon's in that box. He'd never sit still that long. The sorrow and anguish were more than I could bear. We all bawled like babies. Why did he take his own life? He didn't even leave a note. Depression is a horrible demon. I'd give anything to turn back the clock.

Living Your Life: Handling Loss and Depression
With the rising number of depression cases each day along with the rising number of suicides related to depression, everyone can benefit from being educated on this under-diagnosed illness. You will learn everything you need to know and more in the following paragraphs.

Affable in Adversity: The Bereavement B*tch
"Every time you are able to find some humour in a difficult situation, you win."
The chronicles of a young man dealing with bereavement and the journey it entails, negotiating the complications of life, love, drugs, guilt, expectations and the importance of knowing who he is at a crucial time and throughout all the trepidations he's faced with. The memoirs of William Hunter Howell, the son of deceased European Member of Parliament Paul Howell, is a gritty, witty, sad and clever account of bereavement and the struggles it imposes on a person at a young age. It is pure and genuine, understanding life with a beautifully positive message at it's inspiring core. This book is a must read for all, but crucially those affected by bereavement, whether immediately and directly, or as a parent, partner, friend or acquaintance. It's unimaginably poetic in its no holds barred honesty and humble truth.

Song of the Summer King (The Summer King Chronicles Book 1)
In the midst of the dangerous initiation hunt, Shard takes the unexpected advice of a strange she-wolf who seeks him out, and hints that Shard's past isn't all that it seems. To learn his past, Shard must abandon the future he wants and make allies of those the gryfons call enemies.

Elephant Summer
Only three weeks had passed since I had arrived in Africa with my two best friends, Jackie Cooper and Smiley O'Dell. We had left our small town of GeorgeAnn, Texas, to spend the summer with my Uncle Keeno in the jungles of Kenya. As an archeologist, it was his job to explore the region for clues of pre-historic man. For Jackie, Smiley, and me, it was just supposed to be a lot of fun. Now we were running, our legs pumping up and down like pistons, and my heart was beating against the wall of my chest like cannon-fire. It seemed as if we were running for our very lives!

The Manneken Pis - a novel set in Brussels
A lonely old man is living out the last days of his life in Brussels, a city that alternates between small town nonentity and extreme surrealist quirkiness, symbolised by the famous statue of a small boy urinating. Increasingly confused by the effects of a heart attack, he tries to find meaning in one last rational act of kindness before he dies.
Set in the capital of a rapidly aging Europe, the second novel by N Caraway is a tragicomic study of solitude and growing old that also provides a surprising new take on the theme of the classic Frank Capra movie `It's a Wonderful Life.'

Take Back Tomorrow
What if all you had to do to make your dreams come true was violate the laws of the universe?

Raising John
How do you go on living when you have done the unforgivable? How do you love a mother you barely remember? John is an orphan who misses the mother he hardly knew. Robert is the drunk driver who killed her. As the story opens we meet 4-year-old John, who wonders why his mother had to die. Robert wakes up in lockup, expecting to sleep off a blackout and go home, until he learns of the accident he caused.

The First World War Fact Book
1,568 facts on a war that shaped the 20th Century. Split into nineteen separate sections, including weapons, the air war, infantry battles, trench warfare, casualties, remembrance, the main combatants and more, this fact book gives a unique perspective on the First World War that will be of interest to everyone from teenagers to Granddads.

World War One: A Very Brief History
World War I was `the Great War'. Nothing can fully describe the horror of the conflict, which destroyed the lives, bodies and spirits of countless young men. From 1914 until the end of 1918, battles raged in bloody, mud-filled trenches in Western Europe and in far-flung battlefields in the East. By the end of the war, over 10 million had died, with another 20 million wounded, and large parts of Europe were completely devastated. This book is the story of `the war to end all wars'.

Miss Annie, I rarely post on this forum anymore, I use Goodreads instead. However, I always look at the Freebies, price drops and similar, and very occassionally post. I am always extremely grateful to those who take the time, trouble and effort to post links to books which may be of interest to others.
I am so sorry your friend ended his life, my brother did the same 11 years ago. I miss him terribly but I have come to accept that his depression was too much to bear. It's a dreadful illness, and one which is so misunderstood. Remember all the times your friend made you laugh/giggle/smile - these memories are what you will treasure forever and will, I promise, make you smile too every time you think of him.
As for the pathetic no voters ...... forget them, they're nothing and no-one.

As for grief, you'll find it comes in waves. When the ship is first wrecked, you're drowning, with wreckage all around you. Everything floating around you reminds you of the beauty and the magnificence of the ship that was, and is no more. And all you can do is float. You find some piece of the wreckage and you hang on for a while. Maybe it's some physical thing. Maybe it's a happy memory or a photograph. Maybe it's a person who is also floating. For a while, all you can do is float. Stay alive.

In the beginning, the waves are 100 feet tall and crash over you without mercy. They come 10 seconds apart and don't even give you time to catch your breath. All you can do is hang on and float. After a while, maybe weeks, maybe months, you'll find the waves are still 100 feet tall, but they come further apart. When they come, they still crash all over you and wipe you out. But in between, you can breathe, you can function. You never know what's going to trigger the grief. It might be a song, a picture, a street intersection, the smell of a cup of coffee. It can be just about anything...and the wave comes crashing. But in between waves, there is life.

Somewhere down the line, and it's different for everybody, you find that the waves are only 80 feet tall. Or 50 feet tall. And while they still come, they come further apart. You can see them coming. An anniversary, a birthday, or Christmas. You can see it coming, for the most part, and prepare yourself. And when it washes over you, you know that somehow you will, again, come out the other side. Soaking wet, sputtering, still hanging on to some tiny piece of the wreckage, but you'll come out.
The waves never stop coming, and somehow you don't really want them to. But you learn that you'll survive them. And other waves will come. And you'll survive them too.

This was taken from news site I use, and thought it so poignant yet apt when describing grief.

(come on neggers, it has no right in this thread, downvote to your little tiny minds content)

Blue Liverbird that is a really great analogous bit about grief. I really liked it and it is so true.
And Annie, the naysayers, the no voters, well they are just pathetic, miserable, mean peeps. So ignore them as we all speak the truth!
Thank you everyone for posting books. I've taken a few, including Ginger the Gangster Cat. I volunteer at an animal sanctuary so will read it and tell all the cats about Ginger!

Hello Miss Annie
Here's another one for the no-voters to attack as I'm not suggesting a freebie. Just wanted to say that I watched the YouTube clip you posted and thought that you'd made a really fitting tribute to your friend. The photos will be a lovely memorial to everyone who knew him, hopefully when he was in a better place. I know the funeral wouldn't have been easy for you but it does mark a turning point - up to that time, it's all that really fills your mind and how you'll get through it. Now though, you have time to think about him and remember how he was and what he meant to you - good memories as well as bad. I do hope that the good soon outweigh the sad ones and that you remember him with joy. I also hope you don't mind me taking the time to post - I don't want to seem like I'm 'lecturing' you but I wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you at this time and I'm glad you feel able to be back on thread. Best Wishes Debra x

Hey Joo. I don't believe in down voting people who are kind enough to seek books out, or anyone else for that matter, but I really don't want you to feel unloved so a whopping big down vote from me. Thank you to all the other posters as well, especially those who are having a bit of a hard time of it at the moment.
