《A Short Guide to a Happy Life》
From the author of Blessings and Still Life with Bread Crumbs, Anna Quindlen’s classic reflection on a meaningful life is the perfect gift for graduation, or any occasion.
“Life is made of moments, small pieces of silver amidst long stretches of tedium. It would be wonderful if they came to us unsummoned, but particularly in lives as busy as the ones most of us lead now, that won’t happen. We have to teach ourselves now to live, really live . . . to love the journey, not the destination.”

《Why Men Love Bitches》
坏女人才有男人爱。其实内容写得特别特别风趣，多次看得大笑，讲的是女人要如何保持自己的独立性、智慧和魅力。Contending that some women are "too nice,"comedian and radio show host Sherry Argov has written Why Men Love Bitches:From Doormat to Dreamgirl-A Woman's Guide to Holding Her Own in a Relationship."I'm not recommending that a woman have an abrasive disposition,"Argov writes, "The woman I'm describing is kind yet strong. She doesn't give up her life, and she won't chase a man." Her sassy book is filled with scenarios and advice aimed at making women subtly stronger and self-empowered. Argov's principles, which range from the farfetched to the downright absurd,include "If you give him a feeling of power, he'll want to protect you and he'll want to give you the world" and "A little distance combined with the appearance of self-control makes him nervous that he may be losing you." The book, which has already been featured on The View and The O'Reilly Factor, should make waves with its controversial view of relationships.
