How To Drink And Not Look Like An Idiot

RRP $29.99

A practical guide to help you differentiate between quality booze and cheap rubbish, helping you to see alcohol as more than just a tool to get you drunk.

Friday night at the bar in town: revellers swig beer, slam shots, and repeat until failure. Happy hour turns into kebab o'clock, then everyone staggers home, job done. We've most of us been there (and had fun doing it), but there comes a time when you want to graduate from downing cheap booze in sticky venues to something a little more sophisticated. And, as the flood of new artisan alcohols and serious bars we're currently enjoying attest, refinement is enjoying a resurgence - which means there has never been a better time to know how to drink and not look like an idiot.

The pursuit of quality over quantity is at the heart of drinking well - and it's easier than you think. The following chapters will provide the tips, tricks, and tools to ensure you know what you're doing whether you're in a high-end restaurant or navigating a cocktail menu at your local bar. So if you want to know how to match wine with your evening meal, why you should sip a single malt rather than slam it, how to prepare for an all-day drinking event, or how to build a home liquor cabinet, then read on.

How To Read Tarot Cards Like A Pro

RRP $13.99

What's your reason for wanting to learn how to read Tarot cards? I know when I first started, I was curious about my own life more than anything else! So I would lay out the cards and ask a question to see if I could get an answer. That was back in 1975 when I bought my first deck and a book. Truthfully, I was having a super hard time because of the long explanations and meanings for each card. What further confused me were the reversed meanings. I still pushed on and kept practicing on myself and a few members of my family and close friends. I had to use the book while reading. Then in 1983 I went to a reader and was fascinated by her interpretations of the cards. They were different from all the meanings I had seen in other books. I attended her exclusive, invitation-only class and learned HER way! I decided to take those lessons and gather them together. The result is this little book that is power packed with information...no fluff, minimal illustrations, and no long-winded explanations. It's a unique blend of esoteric Tarot meanings combined with astrology and numerology. I've included a few "lessons" on astrology in the event you aren't familiar with the zodiac and a simple numerology explanation. You can use these simple meanings to learn what's going on in your own life. As my teacher used to say, the Tarot cards will always give you little clues...you just need to know how to interpret them! Just remember that when you lay out the cards, they will tell you what you NEED to know and not necessarily what you WANT to know. Since the first edition, I've added more information to this book, including symbols and colors in the Tarot and five sample layouts with interpretations. (Note: Amazon did not update the number of pages, but there are now 80 pages rather than 55.) I initially wanted to keep the book very basic rather than complicated. However, I realized there were some readers that wanted to become more immersed in the Tarot cards, so I provided more in depth details. Now you will find chapters on colors in the Tarot and symbols in Tarot cards. I personally don't use them in my readings but maybe many of you will want to! I also listened to the readers who were kind enough to write reviews, and it seemed as though some were disappointed because there were no "examples" of layouts in the book. So I took pictures of five layouts and explained them the best I could. Please remember I'm not a professional photographer, so they might look amateurish. That's because they are! Please be aware, the pictures are in black and white in this print edition because color pictures would have tripled the cost. So...if you are confused, frustrated and/or fed up with other Tarot card books that have long explanations and meanings and then reversed meanings as you are attempting to learn how to read your Tarot cards, go ahead and click on the "buy" button. And please let me know what you think of the book with your welcomed review. Katie

Like A River

RRP $27.50

Michael Denington pays close attention. In straight forward language, each of these poems is a moment closely observed. As in the title poem, the author "seeks home" with a compassionate and generous heart. --Darnell Arnoult Author, What Travels with Us, and the novel, Sufficient Grace With an invitation to a "walk in the park" the author takes the reader on a journey in which he shares episodes of his life. The book provides lovely glimpses such as that of a woman kneeling in her flower garden while at work on her masterpiece. After enjoying many pauses . . . at a variety of places, we are brought to a stop following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. "Empty Boots" vividly recalls the shock and grief of that hideous crime. On the whole, this book evokes enthusiastic response. Winifred Hamrick Farrar Poet Laureate of Mississippi. Whether Michael Denington is in a familiar setting drinking "the cool, sweet home flavored water" from a gourd, or backpacking high on a mountain where he sits "in awe of near touchable stars and an apple slice of moon," he is an acute observer, his memorable imagery hooking the reader. Denington's voice is straight forward, from his narrative poem about riding a stick horse as a child, through his very adult description of Memphis marinating "in a cold, damp bowl of discomfort." . . . Most of the poems are autobiographical with sketches of youth and home, travels abroad, war experiences, his wandering "through life's barriers, "to finally, now that he is older, "to drift southward . . . seeking home, to join my forebears in the fertile sediment of our familial delta."
