In this reprint several minor inaccuracies, most of them noted by readers, have been corrected. For example, the text on pages 32 and 62 now corresponds exactly with the runes on Thror’s Map. More important is the matter of Chapter Five. There the true story of the ending of the Riddle Game, as it was eventually revealed under pressure by Bilbo to Gandalf, is now given according to the Red Book, in place of the version Bilbo first gave to his friends, and actually set down in his diary. This departure from truth on the part of a most honest hobbit was a portent of great significance. It does not, however, concern the present story, and those who in this edition make their first acquaintance with hobbit-lore need not troupe about it. Its explanation lies in the history of the Ring, as it was set out in the chronicles of the Red Book of Westmarch, and is now told in The Lord of the Rings.

Available Now Pages Synopsis: Just weeks after her catastrophic coming-out ball, Lady Helen Wrexhall—now disowned by her uncle—is a full time member of the demon-hunting Dark Days Club. Her mentor, Lord Carlston, has arranged for Helen to spend the summer season in Brighton so that he can train her new Reclaimer powers. The stakes are even higher for Helen as she struggles to become the warrior that everyone expects her to be.

My one complaint about The Dark Days Club, was that I thought it took a little too long to get to the meat of the story. I actually read a little over half the book in my first sitting! Balancing her secret life and maintaining her outward persona as a young lady of the Ton in s England is proving to be more and more difficult. Having to disguise herself as a man while working requires certain sacrifices, including cutting her hair.

And then there are the feelings that Lady Helen harbors for the Duke of Selburn.

He was looking at her like she was the first star that had ever come out in the sky, a miracle painted across the face of the world that he could barely believe in. If their first kiss in the water had been an explosion, this was a sun going supernova. A hard, hot, driving kiss, a nip at her lower lip and the clash of tongues and teeth, both of them pressing as hard as they could to get closer.

Some applicants want to know how good the campus Wi-Fi system is, whether the fitness center offers spin classes or even if the cafeteria has an organic salad bar. Let me suggest that college-bound high schoolers add one more item to their collegiate checklist: If applicants and their parents want to know whether the dating scene at a particular college is geared more towards wild hookups or traditional relationships, the best barometer will always be the ratio of women to men on campus.

How do I know this? But when women are in oversupply—as they are today at most U. With girls continuing to outpace boys in school and young women continuing to attend college in ever-greater numbers, the U. Department of Education now expects the ratio to approach three women for every two men by Sarah Lawrence men have little interest in exclusive relationships. The young man told me he had had sex with more than 20 of his female classmates.

The descriptions came from Niche. The guys practice the requisite Christian business principles, but blow through the Baylor babes that are in endless supply. This lack of transparency can be especially problematic for women because, according to a Journal of Sex Research study authored by five Loyola Marymount psychologists , college women are twice as likely as college men to experience distress after hookups.

Just as sex-ratio research predicts, it is the colleges with male-heavy gender ratios where dating is more traditional. However, when Facebook investigated how many of its users did in fact meet their spouses in colleges , the analysis revealed something interesting.

Here’s what you go into it knowing: Here is the blurb Holden Scott is the prince of professional football. At least he was before he lost it all. Now he’s out of a job, out of the public’s good graces, and perhaps just a little out of his mind. So when a friend offers up his remote lodge in the wilds of Colorado, giving Holden some time away to get his life back on track, he can hardly say no.

The last thing he expects is to see a beautiful girl in the woods—one wearing a white, lace dress who appears in the moonlight, and leaves no footprints behind.

Introduction In I read 51 books. That added up to 11, pages. I just sort of fell into it. On one hand, I moved far away from my job and spent a lot of time commuting on the subway. On the other hand, my smart phone could have easily taken over my entire life. Yes, I love reading, but I also love Arrested Development marathons, so it could have really gone either way. Their is just one obvious antidote against all excuses — you have to make time to read.

The gold-plated question is how. Introverts, I can hear you growling, swearing to never use Goodreads. But hey, hear me out: Goodreads has both social and asocial tools! It is two readers next to each other, purring in rhythm. My addiction to Goodreads is also professional. I am digital marketer who works in traditional publishing, and I am also a writer.

After the kiss, they both go their separate ways with no contact, except glances here and there.
