If you've ever wished you could clear out your clutter, simplify your space, and take back your life, Kathi Lipp's new book has just the solutions you need. Building off the success of her The Get Yourself Organized Project, this book will provide even more ideas for getting your life and your stuff under control. Do any of these descriptions apply to you? You bought a box of cereal at the store, and then discovered you have several boxes at home that are already past the "best by" date. You bought a book and put it on your nightstand (right on top of ten others you've bought recently), but you have yet to open it. You keep hundreds of DVDs around even though you watch everything online now and aren't really sure where the remote for the DVD player is. You spend valuable time moving your piles around the house, but you can never find that piece of paper when you need it. Your house doesn't make you happy when you step into it. As you try out the many easy, doable solutions that helped Kathi win her battle with clutter, you'll begin to understand why you hold on to the things you do, eliminate what's crowding out real life, and make room for the life of true abundance God wants for you.

"This book offers the first comprehensive critical account of minimal writing-works of text art, visual literature and poetry that are generally shorter than a sentence. Minimal writing can be beguilingly simple on the surface, but it can also present extreme interpretive challenges. Post-1960s visual art is strongly characterized by the "linguistic turn," and artists such as Lawrence Weiner, Carl Andre, Dan Graham, Joseph Kosuth, Lucy Lippard and Jenny Holzer built highly visible careers from text-based art. Stephens argues that minimal poets working during this same period produced work of equal complexity and power, and shows how minimal writing has enjoyed a recent resurgence among writers working with emergent publication platforms, as well as among those working with computer code. The rise of minimalism in the 1960s can also be understood in relation to new developments in media. Whereas many 60s pop artists and New York School poets gleefully included the detritus of mass culture in their work, minimal and conceptual artists and writers stripped language down to its most basic components. Presented is a pre-history of minimal writing beginning with modernism and continuing through concrete poetry in the 1950s, but the bulk of the book centers on a careful media-archival account of post-1965 poetry and text art"--

Karen O'Connor offers seven keys to finding true joy in Squeeze the Moment.

In this extraordinary work, David Baldacci uses his unsurpassed storytelling skills to explore the essence of survival itself, as a conspiracy of violence surrounds an FBI agent whose fate was to be the . . . Last Man Standing. Seven seconds. That's all it took for Web London to lose everything: his friends, his team, his reputation. Point man of the FBI's super-elite Hostage Rescue Team, Web roared into a blind alley towards a drug leader's lair, only to meet a high-tech, custom-designed ambush that killed everyone around him. Coping with the blame-filled words of anguished widows and the suspicions of colleagues, Web tries to put his life back together. To do so, he must discover why he was the one man who lived through the ambush – and find the only other person who came out of the alley alive . . . a ten-year-old boy who has since disappeared. Acting on his instincts, Web believes he knows where the killer will strike next. Only this time, he may not survive the attack.
