Book Summary:

THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! Also on the USA Today, Washington Post, Boston Globe, Globe and Mail, Publishers Weekly, and Indie bestseller lists. One of the most important stories of World War II, already optioned by Steven Spielberg for a major motion picture: a spectacular, searing history that brings to light the extraordinary accomplishments of brave Jewish women who became resistance fighters—a group of unknown heroes whose exploits have never been chronicled in full, until now. Witnesses to the brutal murder of their families and neighbors and the violent destruction of their communities, a cadre of Jewish women in Poland—some still in their teens—helped transform the Jewish youth groups into resistance cells to fight the Nazis. With courage, guile, and nerves of steel, these “ghetto girls” paid off Gestapo guards, hid revolvers in loaves of bread and jars of marmalade, and helped build systems of underground bunkers. They flirted with German soldiers, bribed them with wine, whiskey, and home cooking, used their Aryan looks to seduce them, and shot and killed them. They bombed German train lines and blew up a town’s water supply. They also nursed the sick, taught children, and hid families. Yet the exploits of these courageous resistance fighters have remained virtually unknown. As propulsive and thrilling as Hidden Figures, In the Garden of Beasts, and Band of Brothers, The Light of Days at last tells the true story of these incredible women whose courageous yet little-known feats have been eclipsed by time. Judy Batalion—the granddaughter of Polish Holocaust survivors—takes us back to 1939 and introduces us to Renia Kukielka, a weapons smuggler and messenger who risked death traveling across occupied Poland on foot and by train. Joining Renia are other women who served as couriers, armed fighters, intelligence agents, and saboteurs, all who put their lives in mortal danger to carry out their missions. Batalion follows these women through the savage destruction of the ghettos, arrest and internment in Gestapo prisons and concentration camps, and for a lucky few—like Renia, who orchestrated her own audacious escape from a brutal Nazi jail—into the late 20th century and beyond. Powerful and inspiring, featuring twenty black-and-white photographs, The Light of Days is an unforgettable true tale of war, the fight for freedom, exceptional bravery, female friendship, and survival in the face of staggering odds.

Book Summary:

'Original and compelling, an untold story of rare and captivating power' Philippe Sands 'A fascinating history about a little-known group who took on the Nazis . . . The individual tales of these courageous young women are remarkable' Independent One of the most important untold stories of World War II, The Light of Days is a soaring landmark history that brings to light the extraordinary accomplishments of brave Jewish women who inspired Poland's Jewish youth groups to resist the Nazis. Witnesses to the brutal murder of their families and the violent destruction of their communities, a cadre of Jewish women in Poland - some still in their teens - became the heart of a wide-ranging resistance network that fought the Nazis. With courage, guile and nerves of steel, these 'ghetto girls' smuggled guns in loaves of bread and coded intelligence messages in their plaited hair. They helped build life-saving systems of underground bunkers and sustained thousands of Jews in safe hiding places. They bribed Gestapo guards with liquor, assassinated Nazis and sabotaged German supply lines. The Light of Days at last reveals the real history of these incredible women whose courageous yet little-known feats have been eclipsed by time.

Book Summary:

From Arthur C. Clarke, the brilliant mind that brought us 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Stephen Baxter, one of the most cogent SF writers of his generation, comes a novel of a day, not so far in the future, when the barriers of time and distance have suddenly turned to glass. When a brilliant, driven industrialist harnesses cutting-edge physics to enable people everywhere, at trivial cost, to see one another at all times—around every corner, through every wall—the result is the sudden and complete abolition of human privacy, forever. Then the same technology proves able to look backward in time as well. The Light of Other Days is a story that will change your view of what it is to be human.

Book Summary:

NEW EDITION!!Well... it seems that these animals don't want to take their medicine! But step by step, each one discovers that taking medicine is very important for the animals, as well as for the children!A funny way to learn and a funny way to teach. As everyone knows how difficult it can be to explain to young children how important it is to take medicine...---THE BOOK OF THE ANIMALS:FUN LEARNING FOR CHILDREN AND PARENTSWhat are certainly the most occurring moments in a parent's life? When their child doesn't want to wash, eat, sleep, go to school, share, take medicine, get vaccinated... And what can a parent answer to these refusals?The successful "Book of The Animals" bilingual children's books series was created with the aim to help both parents and children to discover the benefits of washing, eating, sleeping, going to school, sharing, taking medicine, getting vaccinated... in a fun as well as educational manner. Since the books are also bilingual, parents will enjoy the teaching and the interactivity they can gain from reading them with their children.THE AUDIENCEThe books are geared towards children aged 2-5, before elementary/primary school.They will likely be bilingual children whose parents want to encourage the learning of their two current languages.They will also be children whose parents want to teach a language at a young age.Some teachers have also been using the books of the series as a way to teach a second language to children, with themes easy for them to both understand and memorise.THE CURRENT BOOKSThere are currently seven books in the series.Each episode brings on new animals, new words, new situations and new stories.- Ep.1. "These Animals... Don't Want to Wash!" (2008)- Ep.2. "These Animals... Don't Want to Eat!" (2009)- Ep.3. "These Animals... Don't Want to Sleep!" (2010)- Ep.4. "These Animals... Don't Want to Go to School!" (2011)- Ep.5. "These Animals... Don't Want to Share!" (2011)- Ep.6. "These Animals... Don't Want to Take their Medicine!" (2012)- Ep.7. "These Animals... Don't Want to Get Vaccinated!" (2012)The books are all available in either bilingual or monolingual versions:- Bilingual versions: English-French, English-Portuguese, English-Italian, English-Spanish, English-Swedish, English-Creole, English-Japanese...More versions still to come!Check out the official website: www.TheBookOfTheAnimals.comREVIEW"The Book of the Animals is a planned series of illustrated books for young children. [...] These delightful books tell the story of what happens when the animals in the stories, like many young children, don't want to eat and don't want to wash...The books are very suitable both for reading to young children and for older children to use to learn to read in both languages. They might even persuade them to wash and eat their dinner!The repetitive structure is supportive of children learning new words and the illustrations work well alongside the text to help understanding of unfamiliar words.I can easily imagine young children demanding repeat readings and enjoying learning the text by heart as many children do with favourite stories. Children learning to make up and write their own stories might well want to write a personalised version, using the structure as a prop.I think the stories would work well both in the home and in the classroom."(Review published in The Cass School of Education, by Dr Raymonde Sneddon, Research Fellow for "The Cass School of Education" at the University of East London, and Honorary Research Fellow of Birkbeck College, in the Department of Applied Linguistics)SUPPORT'The Book of The Animals' series is supported & recommended by ABRIR UK, a Brazilian Association for Educational Projects in the United Kingdom. www.Abrir.org.ukOfficial website: TheBookOfTheAnimals.com

Book Summary:

When we reach out to the first bright light of the morning sun and stretch our arms to embrace it, we will experience immense joy. We just need to stretch our arms, and to welcome it within every cell and our being with love and enthusiasm. We will need to let go of all the inhibitions and let loose of all restrictions. The more we practice doing this, the closer we get to believe that the whole universe resides in us, in you.” You are not a drop in an ocean but the entire ocean in a drop.” Happiness is not an achievement; it is a realization. It is not a destination; we sense it throughout our journey. Happiness doesn’t depend on what we have or what we don’t have, it depends on what we are deep within us. When we stop constantly fighting back with what we are, when we realize that we are imperfectly the most perfect human ever created in the history of mankind. We realize our uniqueness. We can never make or produce happiness; we can only discover it because it has always been there around us and in our totality. Pure bliss has never happened to anyone through achievements, it happens when we drop the very idea of running behind, even running behind happiness and then we realize that we are complete and total, exactly as we are. This is how I write my bliss in black and white…

Book Summary:

On the anniversary of a life-shattering event, George Webb, a former policeman turned private detective, revisits the catastrophes of his past and reaffirms the extraordinary direction of his future.

This powerful novel signals yet another groundbreaking achievement from Graham Swift, the author of the Booker Prize-winning novel Last Orders.

Book Summary:

I do not remember, in all her novels, an instance of gross misery of any kind not directly caused by the folly of the sufferer. There are no pictures of vice or poverty or squalor. There are no rags, no gin, no brutal passions. That average humanity which she favours is very borné in intellect, but very genial in heart, as a glance at its repre-sentatives in her pages will convince us. In Adam Bede, there is Mr. Irwine, the vicar, with avowedly no qualifica-tion for his profession, placidly playing chess with his mother, stroking his dogs, and dipping into Greek trage-dies; there is the excellent Martin Poyser at the Farm, good-natured and rubicund; there is his wife, somewhat too sharply voluble, but only in behalf of cleanliness and honesty and order; there is Captain Donnithorne at the Hall, who does a poor girl a mortal wrong, but who is, af-ter all, such a nice, good-looking fellow; there are Adam and Seth Bede, the carpenter's sons, the strongest, purest, most discreet of young rustics.

Book Summary:

Over the hills and far away, a man suddenly finds after being struck by lightning that he is no longer walking in the Cumbrian Fells but is somewhere else entirely. Where that is, however, he does not know. The hills and mountains, lush green forests and the sea pounding at the shore are all unfamiliar and seem to beckon to him, drawing him from the paths and into the land itself. Yet he has little time to familiarise himself with these tantalising new sights and sounds that call to him before an unfortunate accident ends with him destroying a lighthouse and soon after a trading vessel that belongs to a mysterious ruler known only as, "The Keel." Soon he is abducted by the shipwrecked crew and they decide to take him to their master to stand trial for the wanton destruction of his property. There is, however, one problem. The journey overland through the countryside that is a mystery to him will take weeks to cover, and the journey grows hazardous as they walk further across the fertile green plains and mountains of a place he now knows to be called, "Felastia." It all started with the mysterious woman: the red-headed girl who would arrive at his place of work unannounced and ask to be fed. Yet she is more than she looks, for he cannot seem to either shake her from his thoughts, but neither can he find her. She seems to have vanished into thin air. Or has she? But there are others in this land that are waiting for him: mysterious spheres of light that seem to follow his every move, spying on him. There are servants of darkness that seem to be showing an unhealthy interest in him too, for forces are abroad that are seeking him out for purposes known only to themselves, and soon he will find himself embroiled in a war, his part in which is to prove to be the adventure - and journey - of a lifetime. "Lost in Translation" is the first part of "Into the Light," and the start of a new epic fantasy trilogy from Michael White. It is a fantasy adventure for lovers of lands strange and magical where can be found mountains to climb and forests to enter. Over the hills and far away, Paul has travelled far into the lands of Felastia though he has yet to have his reckoning with the mysterious figure known only as, "The Keel." His adventures have been many and the strange magical land he finds himself in continues to enchant him at every turn. Yet he knows now that there are dangers too in this land of magic and beauty. Marked by the strange Shadow creatures and the Green Man himself, a battle rages within him for dominance, and his reluctance to choose a side sees within him the danger that he may fade and become mist, dispersed by the wind and lost to all. Now though the mysterious woman known only to him as Aoife has been found, and it is time for him to pick a side, for she has great need of him, as do the nations of Felastia, for war approaches, and soon events will combine to over-run them all. "The Road of the Sun" is part two of "Into the Light," a new trilogy from Michael White. It is a fantasy adventure for lovers of lands strange and magical where can be found mountains to climb and forests to enter. "Into the Light" comprises of two books: "Lost in Translation" and "The Road of the Sun."

Book Summary:

At just twenty-two years of age, Briana Mils finds herself at a desperate crossroads.Once a promising student at the University of Oregon, she now finds herself alone on the streets of Portland with only the clothes on her back, memories of a happier time, and the stray dog that's adopted her. And she's got the drug that helps her forget.Briana's mistakes haunt her, lashing her with severe consequence, forcing her to make a decision few would ever make. Still, in a final attempt to make her young life count for something, Briana begins writing it all down—everything—so that others walking the crumbling precipice of rebellion might leap to safety before it's too late.She writes about her present struggles and the past. She writes about Michael, the boy she loved and left behind when she went off to college. She writes about the violent activism and drug that derailed her life. She writes about the demands placed on her by a socially conscious mother, and the adoration shown by a proud father. And Briana talks about Brody—the young activist leader who captured her heart, took it to the altar, and then crushed it.What develops is an engrossing record of a young and troubled life, one both beautiful and ugly, innocent and corrupt, lost and then found. And wrapped in its literary sinew is a cast of characters as diverse and engaging as the stars, and an impassioned love story sure to transcend time.What readers are saying:“Timeless…provocative.”“Characters so real you'd swear this was a true account.”“A brilliant read!”Alone Among People is D. M. Anthony's first novel. He lives in California where he's at work on his next book.This review is from: Alone Among People (Paperback)A Compelling and Heart Warming Story, September 25, 2012"Alone Among People is at once an engaging, moving story and a provocative statement about the thin line between thriving and sinking into an abyss as inescapable as quicksand. Its timeless and uplifting messages of hope conquering despair, healing borne of love and care, and peace at discovering one's identity are an inspiration. The author's empathy for the characters and their plight betrays knowledge of what he writes, and offers the reader a unique glimpse into a vulnerable and intimate place… his heart. I recommend this book to anyone who has traveled through the anguish of darkness and longed for the light; it may just guide your way."
