The pocket-sized handbook that does the work of a full-sized handbook, now with a new section on editing the errors that matter.Most handbooks include chapters on various general writing topics (e.g., the writing process or the elements of an argument), but few cover the specific kinds of writing students are assigned to do. The Little Seagull has chapters on reports, analyses, and all the other genres that college students are most often assigned. And because it's so small, so easy to use, and so affordable, it's proven to be a popular alternative to larger (and much more costly) handbooks. The third edition adds a new section on editing the errors that matter—and the option to include free access to InQuizitive for Writers, which provides practice in editing the same errors.

Minecraft: Minecraft Building Handbook: Ultimate Creative Minecraft Blueprints, Building Ideas, Construction, and Structures
Never Build an Ugly House Again by Using Blueprints! Want easy to follow, image based blueprints to use when building your Minecraft houses and structures? Limited Time Only Price of $2.99! Discount offer ends soon... so get your blueprint guide (and save $5) before the price raises again. Remember the first day in Minecraft? You are rushing to find materials, find coal, and build a shelter before you get attacked by creepers and skellies. Typically you build a house so quickly that it ends up being a hole in the dirt… or a 5x5 cube made of dirt! Either way, it ends up looking TERRIBLE. You continue to slowly gather materials, and block-by-block build your house to look better and better. But unfortunately, it never looks that awesome. It doesn’t turn into something that you’re proud of and want to see everyday because you didn’t start with a plan or design in mind. This is at least what happened to me in my Minecraft worlds! If I didn’t have a well thought out plan beforehand, my house would never turn out as well as I wanted. That’s why I have created a series of blueprints that tells you exactly how to build the house you want. Layer by layer, we clearly show where to place each block, and how many of each block you need. Here’s how it works… We give you a variety of different houses to choose from all with their own unique styles and complexities. Take a moment to search through the different options (we provide completed pictures for you to choose from). You jump to the picture of the house you like the best and want to build. Once you pick your house, we will tell you what materials you need and how many blocks of each material you need to collect. From there, start collecting materials or start building in creative. Or you can start building with what you have and collect materials along the way!From there, the construction of the house is crazy simple. We start with layer 1. Each layer of the house is shown to you with a bird’s eye view so you can clearly see which block goes where. Each photo is complemented with a descriptive text version of what you need to do in that layer. Then, step by step, layer by layer, we will build the house to the top! These blueprints were designed to be as clear and easy to follow as possible. Because building a well designed house is hard work. Finding all of the materials along with knowing what to use at which time can get confusing. That’s why you should start with a plan, design, and goal in mind! This is especially relevant if you are playing multiplayer. Don’t be that player that builds the ugly house on the block. Build something amazing that other players are jealous of and compliment you for. The days of ugly houses are OVER! One more thing: Purchase now and get a FREE Minecraft Secrets ebook. (With this you will have a strong advantage over other players...) It’s time to get started and get excited about your new Minecraft home. Just listen to what our other Minecraft readers have to say... "This ebook is amazing. The images display what you need to construct so clearly. Building the house was so simple and it looks better than everyone else's on our server."-- Tim G. --"Boss, PLEASE MAKE MORE BLUEPRINTS! I always built awful houses and could never be happy with them or figure out how to improve them.

From the Introduction: "Stoic philosophy, of which Epictetus (c. a.d. 50–130) is a representative, began as a recognizable movement around 300 b.c. Its founder was Zeno of Cytium (not to be confused with Zeno of Elea, who discovered the famous paradoxes). He was born in Cyprus about 336 b.c., but all of his philosophical activity took place in Athens. For more than 500 years Stoicism was one of the most influential and fruitful philosophical movements in the Graeco-Roman world. The works of the earlier Stoics survive only in fragmentary quotations from other authors, but from the Renaissance until well into the nineteenth century, Stoic ethical thought was one of the most important ancient influences on European ethics, particularly because of the descriptions of it by Cicero, through surviving works by the Stoics Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, and also Epictetus--and also because of the effect that it had had in antiquity, and continued to have into the nineteenth century, on Christian ethical views. Nowadays an undergraduate or graduate student learning about ancient philosophy in a university course may well hear only about Plato and Aristotle, along perhaps with the presocratics; but in the history of Western thought and education this situation is somewhat atypical, and in most periods a comparable student would have learned as much or more about Stoicism, as well as two other major ancient philosophical movements, Epicureanism and Scepticism. In spite of this lack of explicit acquaintance with Stoic philosophers and their works, however, most students will recognize in Epictetus various ideas that are familiar through their effects on other thinkers, notably Spinoza, in our intellectual tradition."

The Catholic Hipster Handbook: Rediscovering Cool Saints, Forgotten Prayers, and Other Weird but Sacred Stuff
Being a Catholic Hipster is all about an attitude—an attitude grounded in being part of a countercultural community of believers dedicated to something bigger than themselves in a world dominated by self-centeredness. It’s about yearning to learn more about the faith by seeking out “Catholic cool”—overlooked saints, forgotten prayers and feast days, and traditional practices long set aside by mainstream believers. The Catholic Hipster podcaster Tommy Tighe will help readers rediscover everything awesome about the Catholic faith. The Catholic Hipster started out in 2014 with a little bit of fun—the Catholic Hipster of the Year contest—on Tighe’s blog. But Twitter is where—in all its 140-character glory—that Tighe’s “The Catholic Hipster” movement really took root. That’s where a group of cool and funky countercultural Catholics gather to swap one-liners, hilarious hipster memes, and all things authentically Catholic. Tighe even met comedienne Jeannie Gaffigan, who wrote the foreword for The Catholic Hipster Handbook, on Twitter. She said what drew her to the feed was that Tighe was “an embarrassingly Catholic dude who knew he was embarrassingly Catholic and was not embarrassed by it” and that he was “not preachy or judgey or divisive.” Catholic hipsters in a nutshell. Tighe and a group of hipster friends—including Sarah Vabulas, Anna Mitchell, Fr. Kyle Schnippel, and Lisa M. Hendey—explore the beautiful weirdness of the Catholic Church and invite others along for the journey. They share their love for extraordinary saints, offer up obscure prayers, provide short reflections on something quirky and Catholic they’ve rediscovered, and dare readers to put their faith into action with some cool and challenging practices they can do on their own. Discover what’s awesome about:
- Wearing a scapular
- Applying Laudato Si’ at your local farmer’s market
- Hanging with priests, monks, and nuns
- Learning to see Christ in making beer
- Praying the Rosary everywhere you go
- Loving the Latin Mass
- Making the Liturgy of the Hours a daily part of your routine

The Modern Language Association, the authority on research and writing, takes a fresh look at documenting sources in the eighth edition of the MLA Handbook. Works are published today in a dizzying range of formats. A book, for example, may be read in print, online, or as an e-book--or perhaps listened to in an audio version. On the Web, modes of publication are regularly invented, combined, and modified. Previous editions of the MLA Handbook provided separate instructions for each format, and additional instructions were required for new formats. In this groundbreaking new edition of its best-selling handbook, the MLA recommends instead one universal set of guidelines, which writers can apply to any type of source.Shorter and redesigned for easy use, the eighth edition of the MLA Handbook guides writers through the principles behind evaluating sources for their research. It then shows them how to cite sources in their writing and create useful entries for the works-cited list.More than just a new edition, this is a new MLA style.
