The authors of the New York Times bestseller Awkward Family Photos are back with a hilarious tribute to the unbreakable and sometimes uncomfortable bond between people and their pets. There are few things more rewarding than having a pet. They love us unconditionally, shower us with attention, and because of them, we actually live longer. So, what can possibly be awkward about our animal BFFs? Well . . . nothing. In fact, we’re the awkward ones. We adore our pets, but let’s face it—sometimes L-O-V-E makes us go a little overboard. Like giving them middle names, throwing them elaborate birthday parties, and making them a Christmas sweater to match with the rest of the family. Truth is, what they cherish most is our companionship. And maybe that’s the reason we care about them so much—because for such simple pleasures, they allow us to be as awkward as we want.

From the folks who brought us the bestselling Awkward Family Photos series comes a tribute to those awkward early years of life. Our first few years are the most photographed time of our lives.

This, of course, leads to some of the most hilarious and unexpected family pictures. From our first post-delivery scowl, to our first throw-up, and yes, even to our first bikini--Born to Be Awkward is a celebration of what is literally the most uncomfortable stage of life.

Narratology Beyond the Human

To what extent, and in what manner, do storytelling practices accommodate nonhuman subjects and their modalities of experience, and how can contemporary narrative study shed light on interspecies interactions and entanglements? In Narratology beyond the Human, David Herman addresses these questions through a cross-disciplinary approach to post-Darwinian narratives concerned with animals and human-animal relationships. Herman considers the enabling and constraining effects of different narrative media, examining a range of fictional and nonfictional texts disseminated in print, comics and graphic novels, and film. In focusing on techniques such as the use of animal narrators, alternation between human and nonhuman perspectives, the embedding of stories within stories, and others, the book explores how specific strategies for portraying nonhuman agents both emerge from and contribute to broader attitudes toward animal life. Herman argues that existing frameworks for narrative inquiry must be modified to take into account how stories are interwoven with cultural ontologies, or understandings of what sorts of beings populate the world and how they relate to humans. Showing how questions of narrative bear on ideas of species difference and assumptions about animal minds, Narratology beyond the Human underscores our inextricable interconnectedness with other forms of creatural life and suggests that stories can be used to resituate imaginaries of human action in a more-than-human world.

A FUNNY DOG INTRODUCTIONPARENTS, TEACHERS, AND ALL READERS WILL ENJOY the simple words and basic rhymes to inspire and entertain beginning readers. DOGS DO MANY INTERESTING, AWKWARD, AND UNUSUAL THINGS: They lick, flip, hang their tongues out and shout, Hooowwwllllllll!!!!! Some dogs jump through fire, hula-hoops and poop, pee, and smile with glee. Others lather their master with luscious wet kisses and furry, spongy hugs of love as doves fly in the park, a lark is singing, couples are bringing picnic baskets. Dogs hover, their lovers, or love her or him without thinking of sin. Some live behind pins, with big fat grins upside-down and around. I HAVE SEEN MANY DOGS, then-now, and probably later. Is that a UFO crater? Some dogs live in incubators like babies-oh yes! Babies. Dogs love babies, mommies and daddies cradle puppies in rollerblade rollers, collars; some dogs bark louder and holler. Many dogs jump, walk over stumps, while others, hump trees, and slobber and sneeze-snotty big puffy dog snot all over the veterinarian's car-lot. THERE GOES ANOTHER BLACK AND WHITE SPOT ON A DALMATIAN at ladder 49, Fireman Station. Look! there goes another dog playing a puppy dog game on a Poopy PlayStation. Whatta' crazy dog congregation, praying for dog food conservation. What? that's whack. I better get back on track. WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THIS HEAVILY POPULATED DOG NATION? Somebody change that cable Dog Station. Some dogs are Cop Dogs and smell drugs, give cops hugs, and other brave dogs, find ticking time bombs. I'd hate that job. I give that dog, PROPS. Wow! OH YES! SOME DOGS LOVE HUNTING FOR BIRDS, unheard in the city, but hound dogs like dazzling ducks and swim in the water like-otters. Other dogs chase sheep and cows, how? Easy, humans train them, tame them, domesticate them, like ten thousand years ago, who knows? Dogs are freakin' amazing. show them how to play poker and they might just go Dog Crazy!!!!THIS COLLECTION SHOULD BE ON EVERYONE'S BOOKSHELF and digital library and a great gift for any special occasion: Holidays, Birthdays, and Graduations.

SMS or Text is one of the most popular forms of messaging. Yet, despite its immense popularity, SMS has remained unexamined by science. Not only that, but the commercial organisations, who have been forced to offer SMS by a demanding public, have had very little idea why it has been successful. Indeed, they have, until very recently, planned to replace SMS with other messaging services such as MMS. This book is the first to bring together scientific studies into the values that ‘texting’ provides, examining both cultural variation in countries as different as the Philippines and Germany, as well as the differences between SMS and other communications channels like Instant Messaging and the traditional letter. It presents usability and design research which explores how SMS will evolve and what is likely to be the pattern of person-to-person messaging in the future. In short, The Inside Text is a fundamental resource for anyone interested in mobile communications at the start of the 21st Century.

Agreeing to renovate a church in a remote northern Alberta town is an act of panic for a man anxious for a break from God, but ex-pastor Luke Parks needs escape from the girl who crushed his heart. He's hoping to outrun his crisis of faith, but his doubts quickly find him. To make matters worse, he's stuck with a snarky church secretary and saddled with an inexperienced assistant. Through a chance encounter Luke discovers not just a lost kitten, but a deeper, richer side of the congregation. Just as he's becoming comfortable in his new routine, life takes another swing. His ex-fianc&Ã&©e shows up begging for forgiveness, and in the process, turns his new friends against him. As Luke struggles to figure out the line between accountability and forgiveness, he can't help but wonder if he&â&€&™ll ever find a place to call home.
