Book 4 of the After series-newly revised and expanded, Anna Todd's After fanfiction racked up 1 billion reads online and captivated readers across the globe. Experience the internet's most talked-about book for yourself from the writer Cosmopolitan called "the biggest literary phenomenon of her generation."§§Tessa and Hardin have defied all the odds, but will their fairy tale ending be turned on its head? AFTER EVER HAPPY... Life will never be the same. HESSA§§It's never been all rainbows and sunshine for Tessa and Hardin, but each new challenge they've faced has only made their passionate bond stronger and stronger. But when a revelation about the past shakes Hardin's inpenetrable façade to the core-and then Tessa suffers a tragedy-will they stick together again, or be torn apart?§§As the shocking truth about each of their families emerges, it's clear the two lovers are not so different from each other. Tessa is no longer the sweet, simple, good girl she was when she met Hardin-any more than he is the cruel, moody boy she fell so hard for. Tessa understands all the troubling emotions brewing beneath Hardin's exterior, and she knows she's the only one who can calm him when he erupts. He needs her.§§But the more layers of his past come to light, the darker he grows, and the harder he pushes Tessa-and everyone else in his life-away. Tessa's not sure if she really can save him-not without sacrificing herself. She refuses to go down without a fight. But who is she fighting for-Hardin or herself?

Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji.

Is America the new world empire? Presidents from Lincoln to Bush may have denied it but, as Niall Ferguson's brilliant and provocative book shows, the US is the greatest military and economic colossus of all time. What's more, it always has been an empire, with its founding fathers battling westwards for territory and their successors spreading freedom across the world - at gunpoint if necessary. Yet is the US really equipped to play Atlas, bearing the weight of the world on its shoulders? America, Ferguson reveals, is now an empire running on empty, backing away from the crucial imperial commitments of time, money and manpower - and resting on perilous financial foundations. When the New Rome falls, its collapse may come from within. Unlike the majority of European writers who have written on this subject, I am fundamentally in favor of empire. Indeed, I believe that empire is more necessary in the twenty-first century than ever before. The threats we face are not in themselves new ones. But advances in technology make them more dangerous than ever before. Thanks to the speed and regularity of modern air travel, infectious diseases can be transmitted to us with terrifying swiftness. And thanks to the relative cheapness and destructiveness of modern weaponry, tyrants and terrorists can realistically think of devastating our cities. The old, post-1945 system of sovereign states, bound loosely together by an evolving system of international law, cannot easily deal with these threats because there are too many nation-states where the writ of the "international community" simply does not run. What is required is an agency capable of intervening in the affairs of such states to contain epidemics, depose tyrants, end local wars and eradicate terrorist organizations. This is the self-interested argument for empire. But there is also a complementary altruistic argument. Even if they did not pose a direct threat to the security of the United States, economic and social conditions in a number of countries in the world would justify some kind of intervention. The poverty of a country like Liberia is explicable not in terms of resource endowment; otherwise (for example) Botswana would be just as poor. The problem in Liberia, as in so many sub-Saharan African states, is simply misgovernment: corrupt and lawless dictators whose conduct makes economic development impossible and encourages political opposition to take the form of civil war. Countries in this condition will not correct themselves. They require the imposition of some kind of external authority. There are those who would insist that an empire is by definition incapable of playing such a role; in their eyes, all empires are exploitative in character. Yet there can be

Excerpt from Jake Kilrain's Life and Battles: Also, a Complete History of the Great International Prize Fight With Jem Smith for $10, 000, the Police Gazwtte Diamond Belt and Championship of the World Jake Kilrain, the American champion, who fought Jem Smith for $10,000, the "Police Gazette" diamond belt and championship of the world, stands 5 feet 10ż inches high, and weighs 210 pounds. His chest measurement is 41 inches, upon and around the biceps 16 inches, forearm 14 inches, waist 34 inches, thigh 25 inches, calf of leg 16ż inches. He wears a No 9 shoe and No. 9 glove, and it takes a 17 inch collar to encircle his neck. Kilrain gives the following interesting history of his life: "My name is Joseph John Killion. When I was a lad my comrades persisted in calling me Kilrain, and the name has stuck to me ever since, so I have bowed to the inevitable, and now write my name 'Kilrain.' I was born at Greenport, Columbia county, which is in the State of New York, and the date of my nativity is the 9th of February, 1859, so that I am twenty-eight years of age. I have no regular occupation other than training athletes and boxing, but in my younger days I worked in a rolling mill in Somerville, Mass., which is a suburb of Boston. It was here that I developed a love for athletic sports. In fact they were forced upon me, for in such a large establishment it was not to be wondered at that there were many good boxers, and as I was a gawky country boy, I was a mark for all their practical jokes. Sometimes they went too far, and when I remonstrated they laughed at me. You can bet that made me mad, so I just made up my mind that I would thrash one or two of these tormentors, and from that day I was champion of the mill. "The first customer was Jack Daley, who had fought several small ring battles, but I put him to sleep in short order. My next encounter was with Jem Driscoll, a regular giant, who, while having little or no science, could hit with the force of a trip hammer. He hurt me very badly, but I finally wore him down, and when he at last gave up his mother would scarcely have known him. I next fought Dan Dwyer. It was a long and bloody fight, but I finally managed to pull through a winner. I was very sore for a long time and thought I was internally injured. The last man that was pitted against me was Dennis Roach. He had been imported to the mill with the idea of putting an end to young Kilrain's run of luck, and they came near doing so, too. I was not very well when the day for the fight arrived, but knowing full well that I should have been branded as a coward if I backed out, I got into the ring determined to stand up as long as I was able. My antagonist was a hurricane fighter, and sought to annihilate me in a couple of rounds. He hit me in the stomach several times, and I thought that I must give in, but after a little while Roach's blows got weaker, and finding he could not hurt me much, I fought with him, and by a judicious use of my left hand managed to close up his eyes. Roach was willing to keep on fighting, although he could not see. Finally his friends took him away, and that ended my fighting career in the mill." He took to rowing, and was one of the winning crew in a four-oared race on Lake Waldron. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at

Excerpt from Proceedings of the National Conference on Labor Problems Under War Conditions: Under the Joint Auspices of the Society of Industrial Engineers and the Western Efficiency Society, Held at Hotel La Salle, Chicago, March 27, 28, 29, 1918 Mr. F. A. Carlisle, President Western Efficiency Society, Chairman. The meeting was called to order at two o'clock. The Chairman: As is customary with the meetings of the Western Efficiency Society, we will first join in singing the Star Spangled Banner, after which the Rev. Alfred F. Waldo, of Riverside, will deliver the invocation. The assembly joined in singing the Star Spangled Banner, after which the following prayer was offered by Rev. Alfred F. Waldo: "Let us pray. This, our Heavenly Father, is Holy Week, and yet we know that no good work is too secular to be done in this week, and we rejoice and find encouragement and are grateful to Thee for the line intelligence and the splendid enthusiasm with which the minds of these men and women set themselves to work for the solution of the problems of humanity. We perceive in the coincidence between the Holy Weeks, the Holy Week of old when Jesus Christ laid down his life for the redemption of the world on the cross of Calvary and this week when our brave men and boys in the spirit of the same Christ are laying down their lives freely on that western front, we perceive in this a coincidence which is suggestive and stimulating. "We realize that we are living not only in a time but in a week and possibly on a day than which no other day aside from the one upon which Christ died has been more fateful in human history, more freighted, perhaps, with destiny for the future interests of mankind. And we pray that whereas that one of old who betrayed Christ did have the good sense afterwards to go out and hang himself, this traitor by which civilization is betrayed today, instead of terminating his own meaningless and woeful existence utilizes his energies for the murder of others; for him we pray to God that his erroneous and wicked plots may be confuted, and that Thou wilt send a divine power into the minds of the rulers of all of our nations that are associated for the vanquishment of autocracy and evil, into tho minds of our rulers, our generals, our officers, Thou Lord send wisdom that they may plan boldly and wisely and effectively. "And we pray for the men who fight that through faith in Thee they may become conscious of a physical and moral and spiritual strength which is not their own and yet which becomes their own because they receive it and utilize it.

"That's good enough." We all say it to ourselves and others when dealing with a project. Buy why? Why settle when we know "good enough" rarely is? A greater question is why settle for a good enough life when a GREAT LIFE is obtainable? In The Best Things In Life J. R. Miller addresses the Best Things and the path that can lead us to a truly great life. "He who is satisfied with himself and with his attainments is not living worthily. A wholesome life ever sees better things yet to be reached. It is true, as Browning says, When the fight begins within himself, A man's worth something." Being good is not enough; striving to be better is not the loftiest aim. Nothing less than the best should ever satisfy an immortal being." J.R.M. James Russell Miller was a popular Christian author, Editorial Superintendent of the Presbyterian Board of Publication, and pastor of several churches in Pennsylvania and Illinois. He was the General field Agent for the United States Christian Commission, an organization established by the Young Men's Christian Association after the First Battle of Bull Run. Miller authored nearly 100 books and articles.

Powieści i opowiadania

Boisterous, ribald, and ultimately shattering, Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is the seminal novel of the 1960s that has left an indelible mark on the literature of our time. Here is the unforgettable story of a mental ward and its inhabitants, especially the tyrannical Big Nurse Ratched and Randle Patrick McMurphy, the brawling, fun-loving new inmate who resolves to oppose her. We see the struggle through the eyes of Chief Bromden, the seemingly mute half-Indian patient who witnesses and understands McMurphy's heroic attempt to do battle with the awesome powers that keep them all imprisoned. This morning the lockworks rattle strange; it's not a regular visitor at the door. An Escort Man's voice calls down, edgy and impatient, 'Admission, come sign for him,' and the black boys go. Admission. Everybody stops playing cards and Monopoly, turns towards the day-room door. Most days I'd be out sweeping the hall and see who they're signing in, but this morning, like I explain to you, the Big Nurse put a thousand pounds down me and I can't budge out of the chair. Most days I'm the first one to see the Admission, watch him creep in the door and slide along the wall and stand scared till the black boys come sign for him and take him into the shower room, where they strip him and leave him shivering with the door open while they all three run grinning up and down the halls looking for the Vaseline. 'We need that Vaseline,' they'll tell the Big Nurse, 'for the thermometer.' She looks from one to the other: 'I'm sure you do,' and hands them a jar holds at least a gallon, 'but mind you boys don't group up in there.' Then I see two, maybe all three of them in there, in that shower room with the Admission, running that thermometer around in the grease till it's coated the size of your finger, crooning,

Hannah stands at the edge of the sheer bluff, facing a terrible and deadly creature that not only threatens to destroy all that she loves but, unless stopped now, will unleash upon the world an evil it has never known. She is not alone, though. At her side stands an army of fairies, pixies, gnomes, and the mystical, well-mannered wood sprite guardian of Ponca State Park. Hannah knows that even with these loyal allies, her chances of saving her father are slim, but with a nod of her head, she gives the signal and the battle begins. Join Hannah in this thrilling, inspirational, and thoughtful tale of a young girl's struggle with juvenile-onset diabetes as she discovers that being different isn't always bad and that wisdom is sometimes found in the most unlikely of places. Blane Brummond lives in Ponca, Nebraska, with his wife and five children. Blane grew up in South Dakota across the mile-wide Missouri River from Ponca State Park, where he spent many sunny summer afternoons gazing at the bluffs on the far shore, imagining what secrets the dark and beautiful wood held. After he was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes at the age of twenty-five, Blane was faced with the choices faced by thousands of young people every year: whether to and how hard to fight the disease. As a veteran of the elite US Army Airborne Rangers, surrender was not an option. He would fight. Blane pushed forward, graduating from college and then law school. He participated in a host of physically demanding activities such as college wrestling, skydiving, mountain biking, Kung Fu, and one professional MMA cage match. He enjoys studying Christian apologetics, writing music, and hosting an annual fairy hunt that has attracted seekers from as far away as Chicago. Hannah is Blane's debut novella. The book grew out of the tales he'd been telling his four girls of a beautiful wood sprite he'd met who had a fondness for mushrooms and good manners. On one occasion, the wood sprite had actually given him a map of one of her mushroom farms and her permission to harvest her crop. The map was followed, the mushrooms were found, and sweet memories were sewn into the minds of all. The book was also born of the author's desire to give hope, support, and encouragement to the thousands of children diagnosed with juvenile diabetes every year-13,000 in the United States alone-and understanding to those touched by the disease through friends or relatives. Tragically, the disease is usually diagnosed at an age when the child's self-image is still forming and when fitting in is more important than just about anything else. Hannah is Blane's attempt to show these children, or any other child who doesn't fit the norm, that being kind is better than being popular, that physical strength is no match for strength of character, and that a person's value has absolutely nothing to do with what classmates think of them.
