FALLING IN LOVE WITH JOSEPH SMITH by Jane Barnes – Storyteller or visionary, fraud or messenger of God – this book describes one woman’s quest to untangle America’s homegrown prophet. Though many writers have explored Mormonism, Barnes describes a more personal journey into religious obsession. The result, Falling In Love with Joseph Smith, is a book that anyone with a spiritual bone will relate to.
MISS JANE AUSTEN’S GUIDE TO MODERN LIFE’S DILEMMAS by Rebecca Smith is the ideal gift for the Jane Austen fanatic in your life.

REAL WOLFMEN: True Encounters in Modern America by Linda S. Godfrey is written for skeptics and believers alike, collecting and analyzing eyewitness accounts of so-called “manwolf” sightings across the United States.

GROSS AMERICA by Richard Faulk is a coast-to-coast catalog of the most grandly gross science experiments, beautifully bizarre art, and delightfully disgusting historical sites that America has to offer. Part travel atlas, part trivia guide, it presents these United States as you’ve never seen them before—weird, wonderful, and totally, utterly gross.
