    I wrote a book about where I come from in order to validate a place and experience long overlooked in news media and caricatured in popular culture. The truth in it, I hope, might dispel stereotypes, condescending narratives, and romanticized tales alike. So calling my book "Heartland" felt like an appropriate and satisfying reclaiming of a term. Jesus is Coming 6 Then the angel said to me, “These words are faithful and true. The Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent His angel to show His servants what must soon take place.” 7 “Behold, I am coming quickly. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of prophecy in this book.” 8 And I am John, who heard and saw these things. And when I had heard and seen them, I fell.

    This means that most of us don't know where the words we use come from and how they come to have the meanings they do. Since words play such an important role in our lives, making our life easy or difficult depending on which words we choose on a given occasion, exploring their nature and origin should provide an interesting adventure.   From snollygoster to wamblecropt, these forgotten words just might come handy, says the author of The Horologicon Mark Forsyth Wed 9 Oct .

      Possum Come A-Knockin is a funny story about a possum coming to a family’s home. Each family member is doing different tasks when the possum comes up to the door and knocks. The main character of the book tells his whole family that there is a possum at the dorr but when he opens it, there is nothing there!/5.   W e’re super excited to bring ‘Read to me’ to Book Creator for Chrome today.
