The search to find the name and home of a barefoot young girl wearing a tank top and shorts on a cold March night leads Ironton, N.J., Detective Frank Nagler down the twisting, dark path of a family whose history has ensnared many victims, including a nun from Nagler’s youth and Calista Knox, a companion of Nagler’s best friend.
The third Frank Nagler Mystery, The Weight of Living, brings Nagler and his friends dangerously face to face with an evil that knows no bounds and threatens to consume anyone in its path.
It is a story with twists and turns as Nagler fights through layers of lies and half-truths and searches a sketchy past to bring the chance of healing to the damaged, and a criminal to justice.
The Anthropocene is the current geologic age, in which humans have profoundly reshaped the planet and its biodiversity. In this remarkable symphony of essays adapted and expanded from his groundbreaking podcast, bestselling author John Green reviews different facets of the human-centered planet on a five-star scale—from the QWERTY keyboard and sunsets to Canada geese and Penguins of Madagascar.
Funny, complex, and rich with detail, the reviews chart the contradictions of contemporary humanity. As a species, we are both far too powerful and not nearly powerful enough, a paradox that came into sharp focus as we faced a global pandemic that both separated us and bound us together.
John Green’s gift for storytelling shines throughout this masterful collection. The Anthropocene Reviewed is a open-hearted exploration of the paths we forge and an unironic celebration of falling in love with the world.

The Book Lovers Dispatch Book Pick for September is Middlebrook, The Revolutionary War Encampment that Saved America by Robert A. Mayers.
Once again, Bob Mayers has delved into the details of the American Revolution that take for granted or are complete unaware of.
Learn more about Bob and his books at www.revolutionarydetective.com.
Bob Mayers has just launched his sixth book on the American Revolution. This one specifically covers the lesser-known, yet vital Middlebrook encampment. The title, Middlebrook, the Revolutionary War Encampment that Saved America, seems to surprising in the light or Valley Forge and Jockey Hollow, but Mayers explains in detail why this location was so vital at the time. The highlands and surrounding valleys of this natural fortress were the location of two major encampments of Washington’s Continental Army—a harrowing seven weeks during the early summer of 1777, and during the entire winter of 1778-1779.
Bob Mayers explains how these campgrounds served as the center of operations for American forces through much of the war and during many of its darkest hours. Most significant is that at Middlebrook, where during the winter of 1778-1779 the raw American Army matured into a cohesive fighting power capable of defeating the British forces, who were regarded at the time as the best trained and equipped army in the world.
