Boyfriend Shopping: Shopping for My Boyfriend / My Only Wish / All I Want for Christmas Is You (Mills & Boon Kimani Tru):ePub First edition Earl Sewell, Caridad Ferrer, Deidre Berry
THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER ´I was crying so much I couldn´t breathe. The thought of leaving the shopping centre without him was crushing. I knew that walking away from the place where he had gone missing, without any idea where he now was, meant that things were really bad. James had been right by my side and then he was gone forever.´ On 12th February 1993, Denise Fergus´ life changed forever. As she was running errands at New Strand Shopping Centre, she let go of her two-year-old son´s hand for a few seconds to take out her purse. Denise never saw her son again. For the first time since that moment 25 years ago, Denise tells her extraordinary story in this heart-wrenching book, an unflinching account of that terrible day. What if she had never taken James shopping? What if she had turned right coming out of the butcher´s, instead of left? Denise´s initial hope after seeing her son on CCTV with other children quickly turned to devastation when, two days later, James´ body was found. His death reverberated around the world and his killers became the youngest ever convicted murderers in UK legal history. Four minutes is all it took for them to lead James away from his mother to his death. Denise took up a tortuous legal battle for James, and it was her astonishing strength and love for her son that ultimately helped to change the way the law treats victims of crime. This is a mother´s tale, of finding a way through the despair to remember the happiness and wonderful memories that James brought his family. Above all, Denise doesn´t want her son to be remembered as a murdered child, and with this beautifully written book, she does just that.
Nonstop-Kommunikation, XL-Supermärkte und 24h-Shopping: Heute gibt es von allem mehr, als wir jemals nutzen oder genießen können. Trotzdem halten wir an einer uralten Überlebensstrategie fest: Immer noch mehr, mehr, mehr - auch wenn uns das krank, müde, übergewichtig und unzufrieden macht. In Wahrheit fehlt uns gar nichts - außer der Fähigkeit zu erkennen, wann es genug ist. Times-Journalist John Naish zeigt, wie wir die Reißleine ziehen und der Konsumtretmühle entkommen - für ein erfüllteres, gesünderes und glücklicheres Leben!

Die Vielfältigkeit Indiens ist fast schon ein Klischee. Ein Land der Widersprüche, das changiert zwischen Kastenwesen und Demokratie, zwischen Götterglaube und High-Tech, blanker Armut und neuer Wirtschaftskraft mit glitzernden Shopping-Malls. Bernard Imhasly lebt seit Jahrzehnten in Indien und kann wie kaum ein Zweiter vom Subkontinent erzählen, etwa, indem er von der indischen ´´Hochzeitsindustrie´´ mit einem Jahresumsatz von circa 40 Milliarden US-Dollar berichtet oder von der nicht zu unterschätzenden Rolle der indischen Mythologie in der aktuellen Politik. Ein Länderporträt, das die großen Unterschiede Indiens berücksichtigt und alle gesellschaftlichen Bereiche behandelt.
In her late twenties, Cait Flanders found herself stuck in the consumerism cycle that grips so many of us: earn more, buy more, want more, rinse, repeat. Even after she worked her way out of nearly $30,000 of consumer debt, her old habits took hold again. When she realized that nothing she was doing or buying was making her happy-only keeping her from meeting her goals-she decided to set herself a challenge: she would not shop for an entire year. The Year of Less documents Cait´s life for twelve months during which she bought only consumables: groceries, toiletries, gas for her car. Along the way, she challenged herself to consume less of many other things besides shopping. She decluttered her apartment and got rid of 70 percent of her belongings; learned how to fix things rather than throw them away; researched the zero waste movement; and completed a television ban. At every stage, she learned that the less she consumed, the more fulfilled she felt. The challenge became a lifeline when, in the course of the year, Cait found herself in situations that turned her life upside down. In the face of hardship, she realized why she had always turned to shopping, alcohol, and food-and what it had cost her. Unable to reach for any of her usual vices, she changed habits she´d spent years perfecting and discovered what truly mattered to her. Blending Cait´s compelling story with inspiring insight and practical guidance, The Year of Less will leave you questioning what you´re holding on to in your own life-and, quite possibly, lead you to find your own path of less.
How filling life with play - whether soccer or lawn mowing, counting sheep or tossing Angry Birds - forges a new path for creativity and joy in our impatient age Life is boring: filled with meetings and traffic, errands and emails. Nothing we´d ever call fun . But what if we´ve gotten fun wrong? In Play Anything, visionary game designer and philosopher Ian Bogost shows how we can overcome our daily anxiety; transforming the boring, ordinary world around us into one of endless, playful possibilities. The key to this playful mindset lies in discovering the secret truth of fun and games. Play Anything, reveals that games appeal to us not because they are fun, but because they set limitations . Soccer wouldn´t be soccer if it wasn´t composed of two teams of eleven players using only their feet, heads, and torsos to get a ball into a goal; Tetris wouldn´t be Tetris without falling pieces in characteristic shapes. Such rules seem needless, arbitrary, and difficult. Yet it is the limitations that make games enjoyable, just like it´s the hard things in life that give it meaning. Play is what happens when we accept these limitations, narrow our focus, and, consequently, have fun. Which is also how to live a good life. Manipulating a soccer ball into a goal is no different than treating ordinary circumstances- like grocery shopping, lawn mowing, and making PowerPoints-as sources for meaning and joy. We can ´´play anything´´ by filling our days with attention and discipline, devotion and love for the world as it really is, beyond our desires and fears. Ranging from Internet culture to moral philosophy, ancient poetry to modern consumerism, Bogost shows us how today´s chaotic world can only be tamed-and enjoyed-when we first impose boundaries on ourselves.
