NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST - MAN BOOKER PRIZE FINALIST - WINNER OF THE KIRKUS PRIZE ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: The New York Times - The Washington Post - The Wall Street Journal - NPR - Vanity Fair - Vogue - Minneapolis Star Tribune - St. Louis Post-Dispatch - The Guardian - O, The Oprah Magazine - Slate - Newsday - Buzzfeed - The Economist - Newsweek - People - Kansas City Star - Shelf Awareness - Time Out New York - Huffington Post - Book Riot - Refinery29 - Bookpage - Publishers Weekly - Kirkus"Astonishing." --The Atlantic "Deeply moving. . . . A wrenching portrait of the enduring grace of friendship." --NPR "Elemental, irreducible." --The New Yorker "Hypnotic. . . . An intimate, operatic friendship between four men." --The Economist "Capacious and consuming. . . . Immersive." --The Boston Globe "Beautiful." --Los Angeles Times "Exquisite. . . . It's not hyperbole to call this novel a masterwork--if anything that word is simply just too little for it." --San Francisco Chronicle "Remarkable. . . . An epic study of trauma and friendship written with such intelligence and depth of perception that it will be one of the benchmarks against which all other novels that broach those subjects (and they are legion) will be measured. . . . A Little Life announces [Yanagihara] as a major American novelist." --The Wall Street Journal "Utterly gripping. Wonderfully romantic and sometimes harrowing, A Little Life kept me reading late into the night, night after night." --Edmund White "Spellbinding . . . . An exquisitely written, complex triumph." --O, The Oprah Magazine "Drawn in extraordinary detail by incantatory prose. . . . Affecting and transcendent." --The Washington Post "[A Little Life] lands with a real sense of occasion: the arrival of a major new voice in fiction. . . . Yanagihara's achievement has less to do with size . . . than with the breadth and depth of its considerable power, which speaks not to the indomitability of the spirit, but to the fragility of the self." --Vogue "Exquisite. . . . The book shifts from a generational portrait to something darker and more tender: an examination of the depths of human cruelty, counterbalanced by the restorative powers of friendship." --The New Yorker "A book unlike any other. . . . A Little Life asks serious questions about humanism and euthanasia and psychiatry and any number of the partis pris of modern western life. . . . A devastating read that will leave your heart, like the Grinch's, a few sizes larger." --The Guardian "Exceedingly good." --Newsweek "A Little Life is unlike anything else out there. Over the top, beyond the pale and quite simply unforgettable." --The Independent "Piercing. . . . [Yanagihara is] an author with the talent to interrogate the basest and most beautiful extremes of human behaviour with sustained, bruising intensity." --The Times Literary Supplement "A brave novel. . . . Impressive and moving." --Literary Review "Enthralling and completely immersive. . . . Stunning." --Daily News

Abundance: The Inner Path To Wealth

د.إ65.00
The generosity of spirit is infinite. Therefore, nothing is more natural than abundance. What is unnatural is scarcity, lack, and poverty. I know that these are loaded words. All kinds of beliefs swirl around rich and poor, haves and have-­nots. Social forces often work against the poor, and in no way am I casting blame or making a value judgment. Underlying all the inequality and unfairness, spirit isn’t harmed or even affected. Take a snapshot of anyone’s life anywhere in the world, and there is a path of dharma that spirit will support. It is always an inner path, and yet few people, East or West, rich or poor, understand how to gain access to their spiritual birthright. Yoga is the storehouse of the knowledge that is required before anyone can truly live the life they were meant to live, in fulfillment and abundance from the inside. The key to wealth is being in your dharma, staying on the path that is best for you. “Best for you” is not defined in advance. You have a choice, and in fact you have been making choices your entire life that led to this moment in time. Look around, and the situation you find yourself in was mind-­made. The physical appearances of a house, a job, possessions, salary, bank account, etc. are the results of consciousness. In and of themselves, material things have no intrinsic value. A mansion can be a place filled with unhappiness, a cottage can be filled with joy. A job can be a source of personal fulfillment or a grind. Your salary can bring you what you want out of life or barely keep your head above water. If you want more out of life, construct a vision that dharma will support. In a moment I’ll ask you to write down your personal vision of success, wealth, and fulfillment. But before that can be useful, you need to know which values dharma supports and which values it doesn’t. Dharma will support you if . . . You aim to be happy and fulfilled. You give of yourself to others. You make other people’s success as important as your own. You act out of love. You have ideals and live by them. You are peaceful. You inspire yourself and the people around you. You are self-­reliant. You listen and learn. You expand your options. You take responsibility. You are curious about new experiences. You are open-­minded. You have self-­acceptance and know your worth. Because being in your dharma is the most natural way to live, these things are just as natural and easy to follow. But modern life doesn’t guide us according to what is dharmic, and often quite the opposite. We are influenced to believe in a way of life that produces stress, distraction, unhappiness, and constant stimulation. These results come about when you live on the surface of your awareness. On the surface there is a constant play of demands and desires that have no deep roots. Their spiritual value is nil, meaning that there is no connection to dharma. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

"One of my favorite authors."--Colleen Hoover

An insightful, delightful, instant #1 New York Times bestseller from the author of Beach Read and People We Meet on Vacation.

Named a Most Anticipated Book of 2022 by Oprah Daily ∙ Today ∙ Parade ∙ Marie Claire ∙ Bustle ∙ PopSugar ∙ Katie Couric Media ∙ Book Bub ∙ SheReads ∙ Medium ∙ The Washington Post ∙ and more!

One summer. Two rivals. A plot twist they didn't see coming...

Nora Stephens' life is books--she's read them all--and she is not that type of heroine. Not the plucky one, not the laidback dream girl, and especially not the sweetheart. In fact, the only people Nora is a heroine for are her clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her beloved little sister Libby.

Which is why she agrees to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the month of August when Libby begs her for a sisters' trip away--with visions of a small town transformation for Nora, who she's convinced needs to become the heroine in her own story. But instead of picnics in meadows, or run-ins with a handsome country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora keeps bumping into Charlie Lastra, a bookish brooding editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they've met many times and it's never been cute.

If Nora knows she's not an ideal heroine, Charlie knows he's nobody's hero, but as they are thrown together again and again--in a series of coincidences no editor worth their salt would allow--what they discover might just unravel the carefully crafted stories they've written about themselves.

About the Author

When Dav Pilkey was a kid, he was diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia. Dav was so disruptive in class that his teachers made him sit out in the hallway every day. Luckily, Dav loved to draw and make up stories. He spent his time in the hallway creating his own original comic books -- the very first adventures of Dog Man and Captain Underpants. In college, Dav met a teacher who encouraged him to write and illustrate for kids. He took her advice and created his first book, World War Won, which won a national competition in 1986. Dav made many other books before being awarded the California Young Reader Medal for Dog Breath (1994) and the Caldecott Honor for The Paperboy (1996). In 2002, Dav published his first full-length graphic novel for kids, called The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby. It was both a USA Today and New York Times bestseller. Since then, he has published more than a dozen full-length graphic novels for kids, including the bestselling Dog Man and Cat Kid Comic Club series. Dav's stories are semi-autobiographical and explore universal themes that celebrate friendship, empathy, and the triumph of the good-hearted. When he is not making books for kids, Dav loves to kayak with his wife in the Pacific Northwest.
