a068t.jpgDESCRIPTION: Etiquette: The Blue Book of Social Usage by Emily Post, 1959 Funk & Wagnalls Co, c. 1955, 9th edition, 87th printing. "More than three decades ago Mrs. Post published the first edition of her now world-famous Etiquette. She wrote it initially as a labor of love, because she believed then, as she does today, that truly good manners are the outward expression of an inner respect for other people and pleasure in their company. This wholly reset and completely modernized edition retains the spirit which prompted the original writing and brings up to the immediate moment a work which has always been the ultimate authority in its field."

a239t.jpgDESCRIPTION: J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings, BBC Dramatization Audio Book 13 CD box set., c. 1999. 13 hours In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, The Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell, by chance, into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. From his fastness in the Dark Tower of Mordor, Sauron's power spread far and wide. He gathered all the Great Rings to him, but ever he searched far and wide for the One Ring that would complete his dominion. On his eleventy-first birthday Bilbo disappeared, bequeathing to his young cousin Frodo the Ruling Ring and a perilous quest - to journey across Middle-earth, deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord, and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom. The Lord of the Rings tells of the great quest undertaken by Frodo and the Fellowship of the Ring: Gandalf the Wizard, the hobbits Merry, Pippin, and Sam, Gimli the Dwarf, Legolas the Elf, Boromir of Gondor, and a tall, mysterious stranger called Strider.

Ever since the arbiters of taste first took their mothers' flying ducks off the walls of their suburban semis and displayed them proudly alongside their Bauhaus furniture, or chuckled knowingly at the musical toilet rolls in each other's bathroom, kitsch has become part of the style-setter's anti-style. Peter Ward explores the global culture of kitsch and charts a course through the shallowest waters of trivial bad taste that encompasses all aspects of life - from fashion to furnishings, art to artefacts, through movies, TV, pop and personalities.

a294t.jpgDESCRIPTION: Two paperback parenting books. 1) Home Game: An accidental guide to fatherhood by Michael Lewis (the author of The Blind Side), c. 2009, W.W. Norton & Co. publ. 2010. When he became a father, Michael Lewis found himself expected to feel things that he didn't feel, and to do things that he couldn't see the point of doing. At first this made him feel guilty, until he realized that all around him fathers were pretending to do one thing, to feel one way, when in fact they felt and did all sorts of things, then engaged in what amounted to an extended cover-up. Lewis decided to keep a written record of what actually happened immediately after the birth of each of his three children. Maybe the funniest, most unsparing account of ordinary daily household life ever recorded. 2) Coaching Your Kids to be Leaders: The keys to unlocking their potential by Pat Williams, c. 2005, Faith Words publ.
