Bostonians, like Texans, Georgians, and the British, have their own version of the English language: this is its Rosetta Stone. Natives can brush up on their dialect, and travelers or newcomers to the "Hub of the Universe" can learn how to communicate with the indigenous folk. The Boston Dictionary is now widely considered a classic book of Bostonian Humor, a best-seller wherever books or gifts are sold in Boston and surrounding.

“This splendid reference describes every woman in Jewish and Christian scripture . . . monumental” (Library Journal). In recent decades, many biblical scholars have studied the holy text with a new focus on gender. Women in Scripture is a groundbreaking work that provides Jews, Christians, or anyone fascinated by a body of literature that has exerted a singular influence on Western civilization a thorough look at every woman and group of women mentioned in the Bible, whether named or unnamed, well known or heretofore not known at all. They are remarkably varied—from prophets to prostitutes, military heroines to musicians, deacons to dancers, widows to wet nurses, rulers to slaves. There are familiar faces, such as Eve, Judith, and Mary, seen anew with the full benefit of the most up-to-date results of biblical scholarship. But the most innovative aspect of this book is the section devoted to the many females who in the scriptures do not even have names. Combining rigorous research with engaging prose, these articles on women in the Hebrew Bible, the Apocryphal/Deuterocanonical Books, and the New Testament will inform, delight, and challenge readers interested in the Bible, scholars and laypeople alike. Together, these collected histories create a volume that takes the study of women in the Bible to a new level.

A fun reference book for all things Boston; complete with info graphics and glossary of the terms and “slang” that makes Bostonians unique. The book will include historical facts and references of the words’ origins. The book will also include landmarks, both historic and cultural, and why they’re so important to the city. The goal is to create a book for all ages to reference whether they’ve been to Boston once, lived here their whole life, or just plan to visit one day. Boston has a lot of universal references throughout pop culture and this book will be the go-to resource for people to learn more, get a laugh, and understand the people of Boston. We are working out the organization, but it will be broken into categories For example, the weather pages would begin with a few pages with some fun facts about the weather in Boston, some general weather humor info and then it will go into different anecdotes and slang explanations related to the the weather. Ex. Muggie, Scortcha, Wintah, Wicked Humid, etc… Each anecdote page will be then be accompanied by some fun facts related to the slang term. Scortcha: Anytime the weather in Boston is over 90 degrees, you will hear someone say "It's a Scortcha out there.” This is what we call hazy, hot, & humid! On a scortcha of a day a typical Bostonian would visit Dunks for an "Iced" an extra time or two, anyone with a pool will be getting a message asking "What are you doing today", and social media will be full of photos showing temperature gauges inside cars (unless you drive a "beater", they don't usually have temperature gauges). Even if we suffered a tough winter Bostonians will be complaining about the heat. In fact most conversations in Boston are weather related.........................more (Page will have accompanying art, maybe a funny caricature of someone sweating in the heat or in a float in a pool, and will have some related facts about Boston weather.. maybe avg. temperatures during summer months) SAMPLE ENTRIES Weather Concepts Scortcha Wintah Muggie Food & Drink Concepts Dunks Frappe Tonic "Swigga Tonic" Badaydas (Potatoes) Transportation Concepts Bang A Uey Beater Statie Breakdown Lane Other Concepts, To Be Categorized: Sneakahs Hawahya?
