Someday You'll Thank Me for This!: And Other Annoying (but True) Life Lessons

by Marc Gellman Debbie Tilley

Clean your room! Don't Interrupt! Were you raised in a zoo? These sayings may sound all too familiar; they may even make kids want to groan. But what if someone could magically make all the rules parents give--or a least 30 of them--actually make sense?Translator of the secret language of parents, Rabbi Marc Gellman, to the rescue! In addition to co-hosting the cable program "The God Squad" and co-writing a nationally syndicated column, Marc Gellman has appeared on many national network TV programs including Good Morning America and writes a solo column for Newsweek online. In his companion book to the successful ALWAYS WEAR CLEAN UNDERWEAR: AND OTHER WAYS PARENTS SAY "I LOVE YOU", Gellman uses wit and humor to help readers understand their parents' motivations.

Here is an overview of the specialized formats that Bookshare offers its members with links that go to the Help Center for more information.

  • Bookshare Web Reader - a customized reading tool for Bookshare members offering all the features of DAISY with a single click of the "Read Now" link.
  • DAISY (Digital Accessible Information System) - a digital book file format. DAISY books from Bookshare are DAISY 3.0 text files that work with just about every type of access technology that reads text. Books that contain images will have the download option of ‘DAISY Text with Images’.
  • BRF (Braille Refreshable Format) - digital Braille for use with refreshable Braille devices and Braille embossers.
  • MP3 (Mpeg audio layer 3) - Provides audio only with no text. These books are created with a text-to-speech engine and spoken by Kendra, a high quality synthetic voice from Ivona. Any device that supports MP3 playback is compatible.
  • DAISY Audio - Similar to the Daisy 3.0 option above; however, this option uses MP3 files created with our text-to-speech engine that utilizes Ivona's Kendra voice. This format will work with Daisy Audio compatible players such as Victor Reader Stream and Read2Go.
