With streams, you must consider not only the rows and columns, but also the streams, and make sure that each contains different numbers.

You can choose from four different difficulty levels. Each difficulty level increases the size of the grid you play on: "Easy" has a 4x4 grid, while the "Master" level challenges you with a 7x7 grid. Each of the four difficulty levels has 30 different puzzles, allowing for a total of 120 different puzzles to play. A hint function can also let you keep playing if you get stuck.

The Biggest Loser Flavors of the World Cookbook: Take your taste buds on a global tour with more than 75 easy, healthy recipes for your favorite ethnic dishes by The Biggest Loser Experts and Cast, Melissa Roberson and Devin Alexander is $3.61 at the US Kindle store (still $10.07 at B&N) [Rodale].

Quote:
Overview
Pizza. Huevos Rancheros. Pad Thai. Enchiladas. Some of America’s most-craved foods aren’t “American” in the traditional sense—they’re the international foods we love to order at restaurants or have delivered to our homes. But most renditions of these beloved ethnic dishes are full of fat and calories. How can dieters get the flavor they crave, without buying one of those reduced-calorie frozen meals that are full of salt and other preservatives?

Now, with The Biggest Loser Flavors of the World Cookbook, they can have their lasagna and eat it too! With more than 75 recipes for favorite ethnic staples as well as legendary regional American cuisine created by Chef Devin Alexander and The Biggest Loser contestants, healthy eating has never been more exciting.

Readers will discover how former contestants reinvented favorite dishes from their own cultures and regions to fit into their healthy new lifestyle, and will learn how to cut the calories and fat from America’s most-loved ethnic foods. And Chef Devin Alexander's reliably decadent creations save both money and calories, as any of these dishes can be made at home for a fraction of the cost of a restaurant or take-out meal.

The book will include recipes for meals, snacks, dinners, and desserts, and will cover a wide range of cuisines, from the down-home Southern classics to delicious Asian dishes, Mexican favorites, hearty Italian meals, and many others. The book will also include cooking tips from Chef Devin, weight loss advice from the contestants and trainers, and an overview of the Biggest Loser food plan.

The Biggest Loser Flavors of the World Cookbook will show readers how to expand their culinary horizons—without expanding their waistlines!

Final Justice (Love Inspired Suspense Series) by Marta Perry from Harlequin Enterprises ($1.98) is the NOOK Daily Find (Dec 8)

Quote:
Product Description

Mason Grant had no idea that that the woman he'd loved and so tragically lost had been pregnant. Or that he had a nine-year-old daughter, or that his child had been in the custody of the woman's murderer all these years. But he knows now, and now the only payback the cold-blooded murderer would get was final justice.

This is a terrific book that I happily paid full price for earlier this year. It is a fascinating true account of the murder of a child in a remote manor house that reads like an Anne Perry mystery--one of the best books I read this year. I highly recommend!

True Colors by Kristin Hannah is $2.99 (US Kindle, B&N) [Macmillian]

Quote:
Product Description

True Colors is New York Times bestselling author Kristin Hannah’s most provocative, compelling, and heart-wrenching story yet. With the luminous writing and unforgettable characters that are her trademarks, she tells the story of three sisters whose once-solid world is broken apart by jealousy, betrayal, and the kind of passion that rarely comes along.

The Grey sisters have always been close. After their mother’s death, the girls banded together, becoming best friends. Their stern, disapproving father cares less about his children than about his reputation. To Henry Grey, appearances are everything, and years later, he still demands that his daughters reflect his standing in the community.

Winona, the oldest, needs her father’s approval most of all. An overweight bookworm who never felt at home on the sprawling horse ranch that has been in her family for three generations, she knows that she doesn’t have the qualities her father values. But as the best lawyer in town, she’s determined to someday find a way to prove her worth to him.

Aurora, the middle sister, is the family peacemaker. She brokers every dispute and tries to keep them all happy, even as she hides her own secret pain.

Vivi Ann is the undisputed star of the family. A stunningly beautiful dreamer with a heart as big as the ocean in front of her house, she is adored by all who know her. Everything comes easily for Vivi Ann, until a stranger comes to town. . . .

In a matter of moments, everything will change. The Grey sisters will be pitted against one another in ways that none could have imagined. Loyalties will be tested and secrets revealed, and a terrible, shocking crime will shatter both their family and their beloved town.

With breathtaking pace and penetrating emotional insight, True Colors is an unforgettable novel about sisters, rivalry, forgiveness, redemption---and ultimately, what it means to be a family.

Kiefer Sutherland: Living Dangerously by Christopher Heard is $2.99 (US Kindle, B&N) [Transit Publishing Inc.]

Quote:
Product Description

Kiefer Sutherland is something of a mystery. Known to millions as U.S. antiterrorist agent Jack Bauer from the cutting edge TV show 24, his origins are common knowledge. He is the son of celebrated Canadian actors Donald Sutherland and Shirley Douglas. And he has achieved fame as the highest paid actor on television. His private life is no secret: two failed marriages, binge drinking, public embarrassment, arrests, and even jail. And he doesn’t try to hide it. He admits to it all: every fault, every failure. He should be an open book. But he isn’t. Author Christopher Heard takes us in for a close look at this enigmatic actor. From Sutherland’s troubled adolescence to his initial successes with the Brat Pack, through his time in career limbo, Heard pieces together a portrait of a man of extremes: a yearning son and an absent father, a star and a has-been, a drunk and a convict. Then Heard takes a deep look at Sutherland’s character of Jack Bauer and finds that Sutherland has molded nothing less than a new American icon, the rightful heir to the cowboy and the noir detective, using the raw material of his own life to do so. It is an icon suited to our times and our needs. This is Jack Bauer, but this is also Kiefer Sutherland.
