Adulthood Is a Myth by Sarah Andersen Book Summary:

GOODREADS CHOICE AWARD WINNER FOR GRAPHIC NOVELS AND COMICS! These casually drawn, perfectly on-point comics by the hugely popular young artist Sarah Andersen are for the rest of us. They document the wasting of entire beautiful weekends on the internet, the unbearable agony of holding hands on the street with a gorgeous guy, and dreaming all day of getting home and back into pajamas. In other words, the horrors and awkwardnesses of young modern life. Oh and they are totally not autobiographical. At all. Adulthood Is a Myth presents many fan favorites plus dozens of all-new comics exclusive to this book. Sarah's frankness on personal issues like body image, self-consciousness, introversion, relationships, and the frequency of bra-washing makes her comics highly relatable and deeply hilarious, showcasing how she became one of the most influential voices in web cartoonists.

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson Book Summary:

The first ten lies they tell you in high school. "Speak up for yourself--we want to know what you have to say." From the first moment of her freshman year at Merryweather High, Melinda knows this is a big fat lie, part of the nonsense of high school. She is friendless, outcast, because she busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops, so now nobody will talk to her, let alone listen to her. As time passes, she becomes increasingly isolated and practically stops talking altogether. Only her art class offers any solace, and it is through her work on an art project that she is finally able to face what really happened at that terrible party: she was raped by an upperclassman, a guy who still attends Merryweather and is still a threat to her. Her healing process has just begun when she has another violent encounter with him. But this time Melinda fights back, refuses to be silent, and thereby achieves a measure of vindication. In Laurie Halse Anderson's powerful novel, an utterly believable heroine with a bitterly ironic voice delivers a blow to the hypocritical world of high school. She speaks for many a disenfranchised teenager while demonstrating the importance of speaking up for oneself. Speak was a 1999 National Book Award Finalist for Young People's Literature.

Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt Book Summary:

A New York Times Bestseller! The author of the beloved One for the Murphys gives readers an emotionally-charged, uplifting novel that will speak to anyone who’s ever thought there was something wrong with them because they didn’t fit in. “Everybody is smart in different ways. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its life believing it is stupid.” Ally has been smart enough to fool a lot of smart people. Every time she lands in a new school, she is able to hide her inability to read by creating clever yet disruptive distractions. She is afraid to ask for help; after all, how can you cure dumb? However, her newest teacher Mr. Daniels sees the bright, creative kid underneath the trouble maker. With his help, Ally learns not to be so hard on herself and that dyslexia is nothing to be ashamed of. As her confidence grows, Ally feels free to be herself and the world starts opening up with possibilities. She discovers that there’s a lot more to her—and to everyone—than a label, and that great minds don’t always think alike.

Drive by Daniel H. Pink Book Summary:

The New York Times bestseller that gives readers a paradigm-shattering new way to think about motivation from the author of When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing Most people believe that the best way to motivate is with rewards like money—the carrot-and-stick approach. That's a mistake, says Daniel H. Pink (author of To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Motivating Others). In this provocative and persuasive new book, he asserts that the secret to high performance and satisfaction-at work, at school, and at home—is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world. Drawing on four decades of scientific research on human motivation, Pink exposes the mismatch between what science knows and what business does—and how that affects every aspect of life. He examines the three elements of true motivation—autonomy, mastery, and purpose-and offers smart and surprising techniques for putting these into action in a unique book that will change how we think and transform how we live.

Down Life’s Trail by D. Russell Walker Book Summary:

For more years than most of today’s population could possibly recall, I had been writing poems about my family, my own true adventure stories, and just about anything of interest to me, which has been just about anything! I had catalogued, shelved, boxed, and stored material throughout the years all the while that I had been experiencing the many facets of my more varied than some life. From the time that I was a little farm kid, the workings of nature and its wild faces had held intrigue to my mind. Consequently, by the time that I became old and bold enough to begin my own quest of adventure, I just plainly let it happen. Any opportunity to explore life and of things not yet known to me became open season for my whims. In those early years, I had managed to scribble down numerous discoveries that evolved as I waded through life’s happenings. Eventually, I had accumulated many written utterances and at first kept them in piles and eventually files. Through the urgings of family and friends, it has come to the point of sharing my writings of adventurous ramblings with others. But where should I start? The grab bag of writings that I have dealt from for this first widely published volume of mine, which I had decided to name Down Life’s Trail, for in many ways, it does reflect selections written by myself along the bumpy road of life. At the age of twenty-two, I had started out on my own after schooling for the profession as a photographer. This required traveling many miles, first within Maine then to other locations across the country, and involving aerial photos along with all others. I had recorded and kept records of many of the special locations that I had flown over or photographed, both in writings and photos. Now has come the time for me to pursue the publishing of some of my collections. I had promised to my local audience that had been reading my work over the years that I would indeed take a shot at publishing a book of poetry. My decision (right or wrong) is now to begin my offerings with this aptly named volume of Down Life’s Trail, for the following has been derived from short story poems written as I was tripping along life’s trail. Hopefully, you will read and enjoy the enclosed pages that have been randomly selected from the far reaching trail of my life.

The Manor: Three Centuries at a Slave Plantation on Long Island by Mac Griswold Book Summary:

Mac Griswold's The Manor is the biography of a uniquely American place that has endured through wars great and small, through fortunes won and lost, through histories bright and sinister—and of the family that has lived there since its founding as a Colonial New England slave plantation three and a half centuries ago. In 1984, the landscape historian Mac Griswold was rowing along a Long Island creek when she came upon a stately yellow house and a garden guarded by looming boxwoods. She instantly knew that boxwoods that large—twelve feet tall, fifteen feet wide—had to be hundreds of years old. So, as it happened, was the house: Sylvester Manor had been held in the same family for eleven generations. Formerly encompassing all of Shelter Island, New York, a pearl of 8,000 acres caught between the North and South Forks of Long Island, the manor had dwindled to 243 acres. Still, its hidden vault proved to be full of revelations and treasures, including the 1666 charter for the land, and correspondence from Thomas Jefferson. Most notable was the short and steep flight of steps the family had called the "slave staircase," which would provide clues to the extensive but little-known story of Northern slavery. Alongside a team of archaeologists, Griswold began a dig that would uncover a landscape bursting with stories. Based on years of archival and field research, as well as voyages to Africa, the West Indies, and Europe, The Manor is at once an investigation into forgotten lives and a sweeping drama that captures our history in all its richness and suffering. It is a monumental achievement.

Sweeping Up Glass by Carolyn Wall Book Summary:

Destined to be a classic, Sweeping Up Glass is a tough and tender novel of love, race, and justice, and a ferocious, unflinching look at the power of family. Olivia Harker Cross owns a strip of mountain in Pope County, Kentucky, a land where whites and blacks eke out a living in separate, tattered kingdoms and where silver-faced wolves howl in the night. But someone is killing the wolves of Big Foley Mountain–and Olivia is beginning to realize how much of her own bitter history she’s never understood: Her mother’s madness, building toward a fiery crescendo. Her daughter’s flight to California, leaving her to raise Will’m, her beloved grandson. And most of all, her town’s fear, for Olivia has real and dangerous enemies. Now this proud, lonely woman will face her mother and daughter, her neighbors and the wolf hunters of Big Foley Mountain. And when she does, she’ll ignite a conflict that will embroil an entire community–and change her own life in the most astonishing of ways.

An American Story by Debra J. Dickerson Book Summary:

A profoundly courageous and insightful memoir, An American Story documents the events that have shaped journalist Debra Dickerson's conscience. The daughter of former sharecroppers, Dickerson never imagined she would emerge from her squalid St. Louis neighborhood to become an acclaimed journalist with a Harvard Law degree. A constant reader and a straight-A student, nevertheless Dickerson's lack of confidence kept her from accepting the many colleges offers she received. Instead she enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, quickly rising through the ranks. In spite of her success, she recognized within herself deep-seated conflict at being a working class black woman living in a white man's world. Her path to self-acceptance is at the heart of this refreshing narrative.

Das Erste Englische Lesebuch Band 3 by Elisabeth May Book Summary:

Dieses Buch ist Band 3 des Ersten Englischen Lesebuches für Anfänger. Das Buch enthält einen Kurs für Anfänger und fortgeschrittene Anfänger, wobei die Texte auf Deutsch und auf Englisch nebeneinanderstehen. Die dabei verwendete Methode basiert auf der natürlichen menschlichen Gabe, sich Wörter zu merken, die immer wieder und systematisch im Text auftauchen. Sätze werden stets aus den in den vorherigen Kapiteln erklärten Wörtern gebildet. Dank Wortlisten mit der internationalen Lautschrift fällt das Einprägen und Verstehen besonders leicht. Das Buch ist mit den Audiodateien inklusive ausgestattet. Die Adresse der Homepage des Buches, wo Audiodateien zum Anhören und Herunterladen verfügbar sind, ist am Anfang des Buches auf der bibliographischen Beschreibung vor dem Copyright-Hinweis aufgeführt. Zum Sprachenlernen gibt es kaum eine effizientere Methode als bilinguale Bücher. Diese bieten eine parallele Übersetzung, die dem Leser das Erlernen einer Sprache in kürzester Zeit ermöglicht. Auf einem Blick kann hier sofort gesehen werden, was unbekannte Wörter bedeuten – denn die Übersetzung befindet sich meist auf derselben Seite. So macht Vokabeln lernen Spaß und gelingt spielend leicht. Besonders neue Wörter und Sätze, die immer wieder vorkommen, werden sich fast automatisch im Gehirn festsetzen. Das geschieht häufig sogar unbewusst. Dieses bilinguale Buch für das Sprachniveau A1 und A2 zu lesen, dauert gewöhnlich zwischen einem und drei Monaten. Die genaue Zeit hängt ganz von Ihrer vorherigen Fremdsprachen-Erfahrung und persönlichen Fähigkeiten ab. Nach dem Buch sollten Sie in der Lage sein, einfache Fragen mit Was? Wer? Wo? Wann? Welche/r/s? Wie viel(e)? zu stellen und zu beantworten. Dieses bilinguale Buch hat schon vielen Menschen geholfen, ihr wahres Sprach-Potenzial zu entdecken. So bleiben Sie motiviert und optimieren Ihren Lernprozess. Vergessen Sie nicht: 20 Minuten am Tag sind die Grundlage für Ihren Erfolg! Es ist auch empfehlenswert den VLC-Mediaplayer zu verwenden, die Software, die zur Steuerung der Wiedergabegeschwindigkeit aller Audioformate verwendet werden kann. Steuerung der Geschwindigkeit ist auch einfach und erfordert nur wenige Klicks oder Tastatureingaben. Lesen und hören Sie gleichzeitig!
