This book isn't what it seems. You think you're getting a coloring book with vintage tea party recipes and Alice-in-Wonderland illustrations. You're not. You're getting a password journal with a few recipe and coloring pages thrown in. And why would we do that? To help you hide your password journal in plain sight. In a manner of speaking. Welcome to the world's first un-coloring book. And in the spirit of Alice in Wonderland, the world within its pages isn't what it seems. The book comes with a handful of pages that have real recipes that you can make. These pages are coloring pages as well. Behind this facade are the pages of a password notebook. It looks like an ordinary cookbook - at least in the front. While it's also good to stash this low-tech solution in a lockbox or in a lockable drawer, giving it camouflage is another way of ensuring the security of your passwords. So color up the pages that can be colored. Try out the recipes. They're tasty. But just remember, keep those recipe/ coloring pages intact. They're your "front" for the password journal pages hidden behind them. This book comes in a variation of blue and pink. https: //www.amazon.com/Un-Coloring-Journal-Vintage-Password-Required/dp/1534745165/ https: //www.amazon.com/Un-Coloring-Journal-Vintage-Password-Required/dp/1534745211/

A Book Tea Shop Mystery
Author: Joy Avon
Joy Avon's festive series debut featuring a book-themed tea party organizer will be tons of fun this Christmas for Lorna Barrett and Jenn McKinlay fans. In the run-up to Christmas Eve, organizer of book-themed tea parties Callie Aspen and her lovable Boston terrier will have to conquer threefold trouble--a mysterious will, a missing heirloom and a dead body--to restore the festive spirit to their small town. This Christmas, Callie Aspen returns to her childhood hideout Heart's Harbor, Maine where her great aunt runs Book Tea, a vintage tearoom where every sweet treat contains a bookish clue. Upon arrival in the fairy-tale snowy town, Callie is drawn into the preparations for a special tea party at Haywood Hall, the rambling house of Heart's Harbor's oldest resident, rich but lonely widow Dorothea Finster, who invited her estranged relatives, old friends and the elite of the town to make a mysterious announcement about her will. Believing they can touch a part of her fortune, everybody is determined to come, despite not liking each other or even their hostess. And Callie's old friend Sheila complicates things by using the tea party to announce her daughter's engagement, even though her daughter isn't sure she's in love with the young lawyer her mother thinks so perfect for her. Catering to people who each have their own agenda isn't easy for the Book Tea crew, especially once the valuable engagement ring goes missing and a dead body turns up in the conservatory. Can Callie and her great aunt use their love of clues to dig into the crimes and show their unhappy hostess and squabbling guests the true Christmas spirit?
Memory and the American Revolution
Author: Alfred F. Young
Publisher: Beacon Press
George Robert Twelves Hewes, a Boston shoemaker who participated in such key events of the American Revolution as the Boston Massacre and the Tea Party, might have been lost to history if not for his longevity and the historical mood of the 1830's. When the Tea Party became a leading symbol of the Revolutionary ear fifty years after the actual event, this 'common man' in his nineties was 'discovered' and celebrated in Boston as a national hero. Young pieces together this extraordinary tale, adding new insights about the role that individual and collective memory play in shaping our understanding of history.
