Hoda: How I Survived War Zones, Bad Hair, Cancer, and Kathie Lee, by Hoda Kotb

Hoda Kotb grew up in two cultures—one where summers meant playing at the foot of the ancient
pyramids and another where she had to meet her junior prom date at the local 7-Eleven to spare them both the wrath of her conservative Egyptian parents. She’s traveled the globe for network television, smuggling videotapes in her shoes and stepping along roads riddled with land mines.

She’s weathered the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, and a personal Category 5 as well: divorce and breast cancer in the same year. And if that’s not scary enough, she then began co-hosting the fourth hour of Today with Kathie Lee Gifford. (Oh, c’mon, KLG! That’s funny . . . put down the huge pour of Chardonnay and laugh with us.)

Hoda's memoir is on sale for 99 cents, down from $16.00!


Forest Born, by Shannon Hale

By New York Times bestselling author Shannon Hale:

Ever since her brother Razo introduced her to the trees, Rin has turned to them for peace or reassurance, even direction—that is, until the day they seem to reject her. Rin is sure something is wrong with her, something that is keeping her from feeling at home in the Forest, from trusting herself with anyone at all.

Determined to find a new sense of self, Rin accompanies Razo into the city, where she discovers that a mysterious threat haunts Bayern. She joins with three magical girls—Isi, Enna, and Dasha—as they venture toward the kingdom of Kel . . . where someone wants them dead

Sold on a Monday, by Kristina McMorris

From New York Times bestselling author Kristina McMorris: The sign reading 2 CHILDREN FOR SALE is a last resort. 

It sits on a farmhouse porch in 1931, but could be found anywhere in an era of breadlines, bank runs and broken dreams. For struggling reporter Ellis Reed, the gut-wrenching scene evokes memories of his family’s dark past. He snaps a photograph of the children, not meant for publication. But when it leads to his big break, the consequences are more devastating than he ever imagined.

Inspired by an actual newspaper photograph that stunned the nation, Sold on a Monday is a powerful novel of love, redemption, and the unexpected paths that bring us home.


My Antonia, by Willa Cather

Working in the fields of waving grass and tall corn that dot the Great Plains, Ántonia forges the durable spirit that will carry her through the challenges she faces when she moves to the city.

But only when she returns to the prairie does she recover her strength and regain a sense of purpose in life. In the quiet, probing depth of Willa Cather's art, Ántonia's story becomes a mobbing elegy to those whose persistence and strength helped build the American frontier.
