Three Happy Words for Readers: Back in Print

Out of print.

For loyal readers, they are three of the saddest words in the language.

Maybe you loved a book so much, read it so often, that its pages began to fall out, and you want desperately to replace it. Or perhaps you heard about a book from a friend – it’s the “one you absolutely have to read.” It might be your favorite book ever, and you want to gift it to someone you love.

And now you hear those dreaded words: “We’re sorry, it’s not available. It’s out of print.”

For all of you who have had the frustration and disappointment of “out of print,” we’ve got three much happier words for you:

Back in print.

ArtScroll’s state-of-the-art printing technology is now enabling us to keep many sought-after books in print, years, even decades, after their first appearance.

Here is a sampling of some of our most beloved books, now back in print! So if you’ve been looking for them, waiting for them – the wait is over. Enjoy!

 


Touched by a Story Volume 2
:
If you love Yechiel Spero’s poignant true stories (and who doesn’t?) and you haven’t read this volume, you’re in for a real treat!

 

 

 

The Shabbos Kitchen: Rabbi Simcha Bunim Cohen’s works are known for their clarity and scope. Here, you’ll find everything you need to know about cooking on Shabbos.

 

 

 

Building Your Self Image: Rabbi Zelig Pliskin is the master of motivating us to be as good as we can be, to set our goals and to reach them. In this life-transforming classic, he explains the emotional dynamics of success, shares insights and stories and gives us practical tips on how to believe in ourselves.

 

 Rebbetzin Kanievsky: It’s hard for us to keep up with the demand for this mega-bestseller, which has already sold more than 50,000 copies. This extraordinary biography is a warm and moving account of Rebbetzin Kanievsky’s simple, down-to-earth greatness. Written with the blessing and cooperation of Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlita and based on interviews with him and his family, The Jaffa Edition Rebbetzin Kanievsky: A Legendary Mother to All includes hundreds of pictures, including private, never-before-published family photos and documents.

 


Dear Daughter
/Dear Son:
With family dynamics becoming more and more complex, these two books by master educator Rabbi Eliyohu Goldschmidt are must-haves in every family library.

 

 

 

Tales of Tzaddikim Volume 3, Sefer Vaykira: A beloved Torah classic for youth, finally available again.

 

 

 

Shabbos with Rav Pam: Rabbi Sholom Smith, a close and devoted student of Rav Pam, has rendered a marvelous adaptation of his rebbe’s teachings on the Parshiyos that widens the window of insight into the mind of an American Torah giant who preserved the ways of Torah for generations to come.

 

 

 

Angels Don’t Leave Footprints: Rabbi Twerski shows us all how to see the inner good that is obscured by the debris of everyday life. Angels do their job and move on without leaving a mark, but human beings stumble and scrape their knees — and wonder if they can get anything right. They absolutely can — and this book proves it!

Upwards: Learning Appreciation

If you’re looking for reading material for Pesach, look no further than Upwards,  by Shami Reinman – the personal account of a woman’s battle with Parkinson’s that will give you a whole new level of appreciate for everything you have in life.

You would think that reading the personal account of a woman in her 50’s struggle with Parkinson’s disease would be down, depressing, sad. You might be right in most cases, but not so with Upwards.

Upwards is the first-person account of Shami Reinman, a vibrant and energetic woman in her 50’s – a bubby, teacher, wife and mother. She’s fun, funny and full of life – just the kind of person everyone wants as a friend. Then the unthinkable happens, and Mrs. Reinman’s world is turned upside down.  As the author takes us through her journey from Diagnosis, to acceptance, to struggling with her own body – the overwhelming feeling is appreciation.

Yes. Appreciation.

When did I last appreciate my ability to wake up in the morning and get dressed – by myself? When was the last time that I stopped and thought about the gift of being able to speak loudly and clearly, and be understood by those around me? How often to I think about the blessing of being able to drive a car, climb a flight of stairs? Did I ever feel appreciation for my ability to chew, swallow and eat? Who really takes the time to appreciate that their body is not their own worst enemy?

Reading about Shami Reinman and her struggles, reading about how she faces her challenges with optimism, it carries through to the reader. In her words:

“I accept whatever Hashem sends me, and I am grateful for every day that I have. I’ll take each day as it comes.”

-Shami Reinman, Upwards (page 276)
