    In Growing up Greenpoint, Tommy Carbone captures what it was like to be a kid during the 1970s and 80s in Brooklyn.

It was there, playing street games with friends, being cornered by muggers, playing kissing games with the girls, spending time with family, and constantly seeking out the best snack foods in the neighborhood, where Tommy learn... more
  • Daughters of Spain (Revised)

    by Joan Fallon
    Daughters of Spain gives a gripping account of the hard won changes within society for the women of Spain, through the eyes and experiences of the women themselves. I first began to think about writing this book in the late 1980s, when I lived in Spain for a brief period.  I was impressed by the way the Spanish women I met had embraced the freedom of modern life in the short period since  the death of Spain's dictator General Franco, in 1975. However I did nothing about it. The years went by ... more
  • in Traveling mode: The unbearable lightness of a journey around the world

    by Paulo Abreu
    What if your decisions had no real value and were free of the infinite cycle of heavy decisions? How would you behave and think if your days were a flow of circumstantial decisions without any real significance?

This creates the necessary lightness to fully engage in what I call the Traveling Spirit. But stay in the traveling spirit for too long and it becomes unbearable. For differe... more

  • With Forgiveness Jesus ends all Curses

    by David Johnson
    For many years I had an anger problem. I was sick spiritually, and the reason for my sickness lay in harboring the anger. Over time it compounded because of an addiction to chemicals and flat out refusing to forgive people. It finally hurt me. I am deeply religious and I believe in God, so I turned to God and became acquainted with the Holy Spirit. That's when I wrote my first book "Forgiveness and Avoiding the Negativity Trap!" on Amazon. Years later, I realized that I had much mo... more

  • The Doughnut Boy

    by Michael Dennis

    To celebrate his recovery from heart surgery I took Dad to the coast to fish for salmon. We drove home in the wee hours of the morning, and unprompted, cloaked in night’s anonymity and possibly mellowed by his recent brush with death or the drugs they had him on, he began to talk.

    “Mike, I know you’re curious about my life before you. The stories I told you are true but incomplete. I wasn’t part of the Jedburgh program; I was recruited for something a little... more

  • One Way Ticket

    by Nigel Joslin
    It wasn't really my idea to travel. I did it because I had to. You see, I was meant to. I know that because it became a lasting addiction. Not that I knew where it was taking me. But that was pretty much the whole point. And to be honest, I hummed and hawed quite a bit before starting this book. It wasn't as if I were someone famous. Who'd want to read about my travels? But a few people urged me to do it, changing my mind. After all, every life is special, unique in its way. Why not open up and ... more
