Transformative Travel by Kate Benzin
Genre - Travel (G)
4.8 (8 reviews)
FREE until 13th July 2012
Kathmandu. Nepal. The Himalayas. An exotic area of the world that many people dream about visiting. Kate made that dream come true.

A casual phone call to a friend sparked the fulfillment of Kate’s lifelong dream of traveling to Nepal in order to trek in the Himalayas. She jokingly mentioned to her friend Kay who was planning to start a new exercise routine that they could get fit on a trip to the Himalayas.

Within just a few weeks, Kate and Kay found themselves on a plane on the way to the adventure of a lifetime:

– seeing the gorgeous snow-capped Himalayas in person so close that it seemed that Kate could just reach out her hand to touch them 

– trekking for days into areas that only the most adventurous travelers ever reach.

What Kate learned about herself during the challenging and sometimes excrutiating, but always stimulating, adventure of trekking at high altitude over rough terrain truly transformed her in ways that often did not become apparent until many years later.

Follow Kate as she learns more about how to expand her limits so that she can truly fulfill her dream. And maybe you will find yourself motivated to fulfill your dream as well.

FREE until 13th July 2012
FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke is closing in on a bust of a major criminal organization in San Francisco when he witnesses an undercover member of his team killed right in front of him on a busy street, an accident Roarke can’t believe is coincidental. His suspicions put him on the trail of a mysterious young woman who appears to have been present at each scene of a years-long string of “accidents” and murders, and who may well be that most rare of killers: a female serial.

Roarke’s hunt for her takes him across three states...while in a small coastal town, a young father and his five-year old son, both wounded from a recent divorce, encounter a lost and compelling young woman on the beach and strike up an unlikely friendship without realizing how deadly she may be.

As Roarke uncovers the shocking truth of her background, he realizes she is on a mission of her own, and must race to capture her before more blood is shed.


Stepping Stones to Greater Resilience by Marquita Herald
Genre - Self Help / Motivational (G)
5.0 (4 reviews)
FREE today
Resilience is that trait that empowers us to not merely manage life's inevitable challenges and detours, but to bounce back stronger than ever. It's about having the willingness to pursue stretch goals, the courage to get up when you've been knocked down, and the tenacity of spirit to embrace all that makes life worth living.

To regard adversity as an opportunity for personal growth may seem idealistic; especially in the midst of typically overloaded schedules and the noise and stress of everyday living … but the hard truth is that from time to time we are going to stumble; encounter unexpected detours, and fail. No matter how much we try to outrun or sidestep adversity, it's going to happen. The question then becomes not how to avoid obstacles, but how to use them to our advantage.

The good news is that research has proven that resilience is not a genetic gift for the lucky few. It is a set of skills that can be practiced and mastered over time. Stepping Stones to Greater Resilience is a self directed learning guide to help you strengthen the characteristics that enable you to avoid getting sidetracked by life's inevitable challenges and thrive as a result of the experience.

They need to protect their mom and their little sister, Lilly, while doing it. And what about Dad, the college professor? Can he help them with all his smarts? It ain’t easy being kids with power.

4.5 (30 reviews)

What Drives Good People to Do Something Bad? As terrible revelations come to light, four people join together to commit an unspeakable act… When a member of the privileged upper class frames a Polish immigrant for a socialite’s murder in 1920s Akron, the heart-pounding events that follow lead to a stunning and unexpected conclusion. This gripping tale of bigotry and class distinctions includes political corruption, greed, injustice, murder, and betrayal. 

While Albo Jablonski endures the atrocious conditions of the state penitentiary, his son Nickels, daughter Antonia, and their friends Kurt and Charlie are tormented by the knowledge that he is innocent. Zemsta is a powerful, character-driven story of three boyhood friends during the tumultuous days of Prohibition that explores the meaning of friendship, family, love, and loyalty.

In the sparse, lyrical style of a classic pillow book, Miss Gone-overseas chronicles a wartime life that doesn't focus on guns, bombs or military depredations, but on the pedestrian life of a lower-class Japanese woman as she reflects on the turmoil around her. Set on a lush tropical island during the later part of World War II, the book begins and ends with separations that are also beginnings.

We live in a world in which there are many occurrences that we do not understand. Like the quick images in the corner of our eyes when we turn our head or when we think we see shadows in the darkness of a closet or hallway?

What would their nights be like? Fearlings is a story of such a human.
