My Life in Houses Book Description:

‘I was born on 25th May, 1938, in the front bedroom of a house in Orton Road, a house on the outer edges of Raffles, a council estate. I was a lucky girl.’ So begins Margaret Forster’s journey through the houses she’s lived in, from that sparkling new council house, to her beloved London home of today. This is not a book about bricks and mortar though. This is a book about what houses are to us, the effect they have on the way we live our lives and the changing nature of our homes: from blacking grates and outside privies; to cities dominated by bedsits and lodgings; to the houses of today converted back into single dwellings. Finally, it is a gently insistent, personal inquiry into the meaning of home.

Throwing Rocks at Houses Book Description:

Canada's greatest curling champion opens up about her extraordinary career and life In every sport there is one name that stands above all others. In curling, there can be none other than Colleen Jones. When the sport was still developing, Colleen was pioneering the kind of play and dedication that would propel the sport forward. She was only nineteen years old when she won her first provincial championship, and she became the youngest skip, at age twenty-two, ever to win the Canadian women's curling championship: the Tournament of Hearts. She went on to win it a total of six times, with an unprecedented four in a row in the early 2000s. With her two world championships in the same timeframe, no other competitor has matched her record. In Throwing Rocks at Houses, Colleen Jones discusses her start in curling and her remarkable career--from the pure joy of the game for a large family in Halifax to outworking her competition through will and resilience. But as a successful broadcaster with the CBC, and mother of two, Colleen has strived for success in all parts of life and has insight and stories to share on building a healthy work-life balance. And health is very important: after a serious illness that nearly brought about the worst, Colleen has a renewed love of life and a powerful message about achieving meaningful, personal success. Throwing Rocks at Houses is a candid, charming and thoughtful story about learning to value what matters most in life. Colleen Jones shares her unique perspective and reassures us that even the hardest working person can learn to breathe a little lighter.
