Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's deepest wish is that everyone understand that knitting is at least as fun as baseball and way cooler than the evil looped path of crochet. Every project, from a misshapen hat to the most magnificent sweater, holds a story. Yarn Harlot tells all those stories with humor, insight, and sympathy for the obsessed. Over 50 million people in America knit. The average knitter spends between $500 and $1,700 a year on yarn, patterns, needles, and books. No longer just a fad or a hobby, knitting has advanced to a lifestyle. Yarn Harlot: The Secret Life of a Knitter moves beyond instructions and patterns into the purest elements of knitting: obsession, frustration, reflection, and fun. Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's humorous and poignant essays find humor in knitting an enormous afghan that requires a whopping 30 balls of wool, having a husband with size 13 feet who loves to wear hand-knit socks, and earns her "yarn harlot" title with her love of any new yarn--she'll quickly drop an old project for the fresh saucy look of a new interesting yarn. Since the upsurge in knitting began in the early '90s, the number of women under 45 who knit has doubled. Knitting is no longer a hobby for just grandmothers--women and men of all ages are embracing this art. Describing its allure is best left to Stephanie who explains: "It is a well-known fact that knitting is a sparkling form of entertainment, as spiritual as yoga, as relaxing as a massage, and as funny as Erma Bombeck trapped in a PTA meeting."

In Mark Nickerson's second book, Behind the Blue Lights, in addition to his usual hilarious stories of life as a Maine State Trooper, Mark delves deeper into the reasons people become law enforcement officers, and offers some poignant insight into the difficulties of life behind the blue lights. It's not all fun and games being a cop, and in this book Mark shows us both the humor and heartbreak behind the badge. As an added bonus, Mark has included stories from the archives of the Maine State Police, some heartwarming stories from another Maine State Trooper and the son of a Howland police chief who explain how the Maine State Police made a big impression on their lives as children. You'll laugh out loud at the rendition offered by one of Mark's friends as she meets the "Nissen bread man" (aka Warden John Ford). Then, you might take pause when reading the story of "Patty and her Bicycle,"it's a stark look at the emotional side of police work when dealing with children and death notifications. The last chapter offers a heartrending reminder of the ultimate price some police officers pay in the line of duty. Mark and his legendary friend, John Ford, former Maine Game Warden, Sheriff, and now author, delight audiences in Maine and beyond with their tales of law enforcement back in the day in their "Blue Lights and Funny Cider" tour.

Many people dream of escaping modern life, but most will never act on it. This is the remarkable true story of a man who lived alone in the woods of Maine for 27 years, making this dream a reality—not out of anger at the world, but simply because he preferred to live on his own. A New York Times bestseller In 1986, a shy and intelligent twenty-year-old named Christopher Knight left his home in Massachusetts, drove to Maine, and disappeared into the forest. He would not have a conversation with another human being until nearly three decades later, when he was arrested for stealing food. Living in a tent even through brutal winters, he had survived by his wits and courage, developing ingenious ways to store edibles and water, and to avoid freezing to death. He broke into nearby cottages for food, clothing, reading material, and other provisions, taking only what he needed but terrifying a community never able to solve the mysterious burglaries. Based on extensive interviews with Knight himself, this is a vividly detailed account of his secluded life—why did he leave? what did he learn?—as well as the challenges he has faced since returning to the world. It is a gripping story of survival that asks fundamental questions about solitude, community, and what makes a good life, and a deeply moving portrait of a man who was determined to live his own way, and succeeded.
