Inside Book:

My book is an autobiography, which describes my recollection of events and experiences I have encountered throughout my life, from the time I could recall them as a child up to the present time. Some experiences were good, and unfortunately some were bad. It tells about my immediate family, my relatives, all the friends that I have met throughout my life, in all the areas I have lived, as well as at all the places I have worked. Last, but not least, I talk about all the pets I have had from the time I was young, up until the current time. It explains all the bad luck, obstacle courses, trials and tribulations and hardships I endured, and how I was able to overcome them. I sincerely hope that you find my book interesting, as well as enjoyable!

Book Summary:

Myrtle, Fern, and Blossom have successfully found all three Aaronson siblings their own happily-ever-afters. But in doing that, they've stepped over the line. The Fairy Council has sentenced them to live as humans for the next six months. But not as their familiar, comfortable selves. Instead, they're to revert back to their true forms--gorgeous women guaranteed to make any man stand up and take notice. The godmothers have always functioned as a unit. Now they're on independent paths. Each sister collides with a man who makes her feel everything from delight to annoyance. And maybe something more. Myrtle, Fern, and Blossom soon learn all about a magic that has nothing to do with fairies and everything to do with love. When their six months is up, will they go back to creating happily-ever-afters for people in need? Or will they find their own, instead? Award-winning author Holly Jacobs has sold more than two and a half million books worldwide. Along with her family and her cover-model dogs, she resides in Erie, Pennsylvania, which serves as the setting for many of her stories, including her Dear Fairy Godmother series.

Book Summary:

A devastating accident took the life of one family member, left another in a coma, and sent me on a voyage that changed my life forever. It wasn't until that fateful day I truly believed the afterlife existed and how my life would be judged. Before the accident, everything I knew about the afterlife would have fit on the tip of a toothpick. I was never sure about whether it even existed. Now that I've had the experience, I have a different outlook altogether. We all make choices while we live out our life, and it is those choices that will decide our eternity. Some of the afterlife's mysteries are simple to understand, others not so much. It is regrettable that the only way to know for sure there is life after death is to experience it. Some, like myself, are lucky as we get to talk about it. I'm not sure if I read this book before my personal experience, I would believe a word of it. But I wrote it for those who want to know what will happen to them once their life on earth ends and what to expect once they reach the other side.

Book Summary:

Sheed & Ward, in partnership with Commonweal magazine, presents the second of two volumes in the groundbreaking series, American Catholics in the Public Square, a project funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts. Essays by scholars, journalists, lawyers, business and labor leaders, church administrators and lobbyists, novelists, activists, policy makers and politicians address the most critical issues facing the Catholic Church in the United States. Volume 2, American Catholics, American Culture: Tradition and Resistance, is introduced by Peter Steinfels and Robert Royal. Part One, "Against the Grain," explores the philosophical and practical differences between Catholicism and American culture on issues in sexuality, marriage, abortion, stem cell research, women's rights, and physician-assisted suicide. The essays attempt to mediate the divide between Catholicism's communal and personalist view of the human person and the American preference for autonomy and pluralism. Part Two, "Popular Culture & Literature," confronts the role and interaction of the Church in popular culture and explores the identity of the "Catholic" writer on the literary page and in the media. Part Three, "Anti-Catholicism: The Last Acceptable Prejudice?" endeavors to define what anti-Catholicism is, where it is found in North American culture, what it means for maintaining group identity, and how it can be interpreted as an American or religious phenomenon.

These are many souls we encountered through our walk through this life. Things Seen and Heard by Many chronicles their joy, pain, struggle, disappointments, and their sadness. Our Brother (Dr. Claude) We want you to know that you, our brother, have been the highlight of our lives You came from way down under, but you still reached for the sky. You were born in abject poverty, an environment with defocusing means. You were the exception to the rule because you had big dreams. You were a quiet young man with a deep mind...

Book Summary:

As Bhekumuzi Wuyane perches himself on the great local dome of Dombodema, he is approached by an elderly African storyteller who begins telling him about life in a harsh environment at the edge of the Kalahari Desert. Amid a backdrop filled with cunning animals, strong women, feared and adored leaders, and lovers and sworn enemies, the man relays tales of the three great kingdoms that will eventually transform Wuyane and teach him valuable life lessons. In his collection of twenty folk tales derived from that experience, Wuyane weaves the African mans stories with others, both old and new, to emphasize the rapidly fading art of passing down messages through folklore. As animals and people struggle both together and separately to overcome their challenges and survive in the desert, leadership styles, a variety of emotions, and good and evil intentions are revealed, illustrating the deeper meaning in every story told within the African culture. When the tales conclude, Wuyane meets with the older man once again, relating the treasured messages he has learned. Folktales and Other Stories from the Edge of the Great Thirst is a collection of stories with strong and timeless morals that will appeal to both current and future generations interested in fulfilling their visions.

The encyclopedia examines a wide range of significant topics pertaining to zombies, such as zombies in the pulp magazines; the creation of the figure of the zuvembie to subvert decades of censorship by the Comics Code of Authority; Humans vs. Zombies, a popular zombie-themed game played on college campuses across the country; and annual Halloween zombie walks. Organized alphabetically to facilitate use of the encyclopedia as a research tool, it also includes entries on important scholarly works in the expanding field of zombie studies. • Provides comprehensive coverage of topics about or relating to zombies in film, literature, folklore, and popular culture • Features work from contributors who are dedicated scholars, authors, or fans in the zombie genre of work • Supplies dates with all names and works to give readers a sense of the historical context and evolution of zombie lore • Includes concept entries—for example, comedy, free will, and weapons—that place works in a logical, thematic context

Book Summary:

A beloved USA Today bestseller containing the first three books in the Clarity series. Her world has always been dark, but he might be able to change everything... Fiercely independent Helen Winters was born completely blind, but she vowed never to let her disability keep her down. She did not expect a violent attack to devastate her life and force her to drop out of college. Disillusioned by the cruelty of people, Helen retreated from society to live by herself as a reclusive writer in the woods--where no one could ever hurt her again. When a brilliant young doctor shows up on her doorstep, promising her that his new research can give her the ability to see for the first time, Helen stubbornly refuses. She has learned not to trust anyone, and to rely only on herself. But Dr. Liam Larson will not take no for an answer. He makes it his personal mission to rescue Helen from her loneliness, and bring joy into her world once more--the joy she has denied herself for so long. When Helen's demons come racing back into her life, threatening to rip her apart and destroy the strength she has carefully rebuilt, Liam is the only one who might be able to save her. Can he reach the broken girl in time, helping her to heal and see the world in a different light? Or will Helen's grief send her spiraling out of control, lost to him forever? Clarity 2: Helen Winters was living a lonely existence when the charming Dr. Liam Larson coaxed her out of solitude with the promise of healing her sightless eyes. She was hopeful at the prospect of gaining vision for the first time and being reunited with her family. She was also growing somewhat fond of the persuasive young doctor. For the first time in years, she was being magnetically drawn to a new friend... Then everything came crashing down. Plunged into a hellish nightmare, Helen is forced to face the same evils she ran away to escape so long ago. She is unprepared to have her hopes crushed and her peace destroyed. She finds herself living in constant terror and drowning in fear--and Liam's voice is the only thing that can keep her afloat. His comforting touch becomes the only light in her pitch-black darkness. Helen has always been a tough girl who relied only on herself. But this time, she can't survive alone. Due to the horrors of her past, Helen has promised herself not to trust anyone. When her life becomes unbearable, how can she trust Liam enough to let him save her? Clarity 3: After many years of darkness, Winter never thought that she'd be happy or safe again. Her whole world changed when she met Liam Larson, a charming young doctor determined to be her knight in shining armor. When a brutal night unleashes vicious reminders of her past, Winter must struggle to hold on to the little bit of happiness she has found. When everything begins to fall apart, Liam's strength and kindness might not be enough to save her. Battling with the betrayal of her family, terrifying nightmares, and frequent reminders of her enemy that make daily life difficult, Winter's first instinct is to run away. She is tired of being the victim and living in a cruel, crowded city where she doesn't feel like she belongs. But Liam promises her that if she only trusts him, he can change everything. And that's exactly what he attempts to do, starting with an operation to heal her eyes, and then her heart...
