Reach for Joy

by Teresa L Greenway

“Some part of me wanted to reclaim my lost self, but I was still afraid of Jason and what he might do. It was as if two people inside of me fought against each otherâ??the one who wanted to be free and the one who was desperately afraid.” Having ten children, suffering nerve damage from the cold, and sleeping under a truck along the highway wasn’t what Tessy imagined her life would be like when she married Jason. Spanning three decades, this heart-wrenching memoir follows Tessy’s struggle to comply with her controlling husband’s desire to live like pioneers from a bygone era. As his carefully constructed fantasy continues its downward spiral, she is forced to face her fears and make a life-altering decision. Caution: This book includes scenes of rape, death, and emotional abuse.

White Rhino: The Memoirs of an American Teenage Gangster

by Orlando Fioravanti

White Rhino is a true story that begins in the 1970’s in the ghetto of Philadelphia. The opening lines tell of how, at five years old, Orlando was in an altercation with another boy and he made the decision to kill him and attempted to carry out such an outcome.

Later in life, at age sixteen, Orlando was introduced to a life of crime and he became a cocaine dealer. In time, Orlando grew to be a major player in the game and at age eighteen he assembled his own crew to carry out his criminal endeavors. He also opened a custom automotive shop where he laundered his ill-gotten gains.

From there the story tells of how Orlando’s power and wealth grew as he tells stories of that point in his life. Some of the stories include the time he spent with Sylvester Stallone and others tell of the time South Philadelphia mobster Joey Merlino would attempt to extort him.

The author’s luck ran out on New Year’s Eve 2001 whereas he would be convicted of a crime and sentenced to 15 years in the penitentiary. Orlando goes on and tells stories of life and death in the pen. He also tells stories of the year that he spent in solitary confinement.

It would be at Orlando’s darkest hour that he reached out to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and through that Orlando became an educated and committed Christian.In closing, the book tells of Orlando’s last day in prison and his release from bondage as he has hopes of a brighter future.

Berichte eines STASI-Täters oder Das Leben ist nur ein Gefühl (German Edition)

by Bernd Roth

Ich bin ein STASI-Täter. Hier ist mein Lebensbericht. Schon mit sechzehn Jahren berichtete ich als inoffizieller Mitarbeiter – Spitzel – an das â??Ministerium für Staatsicherheit”. Nach einem Studium wurde ich Mitarbeiter des Mielke-Ministeriums und arbeitete dort 16 Jahre hauptamtlich. Unter meinem Zutun wurden 13 Personen inhaftiert – einer von ihnen lebenslänglich. Ich bin froh, dass 1990 alles ein jähes Ende fand. Ich bin in der für mich immer noch fremden Welt aber gut angekommen.

Sag Lebewohl (German Edition)

by Sandra Todorovic

Mit vierzehn verlor ich meine Mutter. Sie starb an Krebs. Das ist meine Geschichte über das Leben in seiner vollen Härte.

Das Leben ist wie ein Sturm auf dem Meer – machtvoll und unerwartet trifft es einen mit ganzer Wucht. Man schwimmt ums Ã?berleben und holt tief Luft bevor man wieder unter Wasser gezogen wird, bis man entweder aufgibt oder kämpft. Denn nur die Starken überleben.

Präsident Barack Obama: Das Kindle-Singles-Interview (Kindle Single) (German Edition)

by David Blum

In diesem Kindle-Singles-Interview prangert Präsident Barack Obama â??die Veränderung in der Kultur” an, die die Sichtweise auf den American Dream verzerrt hat. â??Dieses Schaufenster, das den Blick auf die Lifestyles der Reichen und Schönen freigab, gab es noch nicht”, sagt der Präsident. â??Die Jugendlichen haben nicht jeden Tag nachgeschaut, was Kim Kardashian trug oder wohin Kanye West in den Urlaub fuhr, weil sie glaubten, so sehe Erfolg aus.” Er spricht über die Lage auf dem Arbeitsmarkt aus seiner persönlichen Perspektive, und stellt sich die Frage, wie anders sein eigenes Leben verlaufen wäre, hätte er keinen Erfolg in der Politik gehabt. â??Ich kann mir vorstellen, dass ich ein guter Lehrer geworden wäre”, gibt der Präsident nachdenklich an.

In dem Interview, das am 30. Juli 2013 an einem Amazon Standort in Chattanooga, Tennessee, stattfand, diskutiert Obama den steigenden Bedarf an Regierungsprogrammen, die wirklich etwas verändern. Sich an seine Hauptaussage haltend, spricht er offen über die verstärkte Polarisierung in der amerikanischen Politik seit der Finanzkrise und die Unnachgiebigkeit der Republikaner hinsichtlich seines Programms. In einer persönlichen Bemerkung stellt er dar, dass er und die First Lady Michelle Obama ihre Töchter ständig daran erinnerten, dass sie â??in einem etwas unwirklichen Umfeld lebten”, als privilegierte Kinder in einer Welt, die stark von Arbeitslosigkeit und Rezession geprägt ist.

Das Gespräch führte David Blum. Blum ist der Redakteur der Kindle Singles bei Amazon. Seine Karriere begann er als Redakteur bei The Wall Street Journal. Er war Chefredakteur der The Village Voice, der New York Press und des 02138 Magazine. Er war Autor und Redakteur des New York Times Magazine, und freier Redakteur bei New York und Esquire. Er hat zwei Bücher geschrieben: Flash in the Pan: The Life and Death of an American Restaurant (1992) und Tick�Tick�Tick: The Long Life & Turbulent Times of 60 Minutes (2004). David Blum hält einen B.A. in Englische Literatur von der University of Chicago.

Bisestimorgiarete – 000 – Booklip (Italian Edition)

by Luca Fadda

Bisestimorgiarete è un seriale noIRonico. Maledetta parodia di qualsiasi giallo, noir o poliziesco. Fa ridere insomma. Forse. Siamo fiduciosi.
Il presente Booklip è invece la clip del libro, organizzato in stile trailer cinematografico ma adatto al libro. Un’opera che contiene, per estratti, alcune scene del libro che pubblicizza. Secondo noi è la nuova frontiera del booktrailer, più consono al formato che presenta. Nel caso del seriale Bisestimorgiarete troverete, per ogni numero pubblicato, una selezione di due scene. Giusto quanto basta per capire cosa vi troverete di fronte acquistando uno (ma è meglio tutti) dei numeri fin qui editi.
Scaricatelo, leggetelo, parlatene e distribuitelo senza remore. Lo potete regalare, prestare, buttare, mangiare. In merito all’ultima ipotesi solo virtualmente.
Il Booklip di Bisestimorgiarete viene aggiornato dopo ogni uscita.
Nessun albero è stato abbattuto per scrivere questa descrizione. Forse. Siamo fiduciosi.
