Keeping Faith: Memoirs of a President by Jimmy Carter

English | 1995 | ISBN: 1557283303 | 640 Pages | PDF | 145.8 MB

Keeping Faith is Jimmy Carter’s account of the satisfaction, frustration, and solitude that attend the man in the Oval Offce. Mr. Carter writes candidly about the crises that confronted him during his tenure as President of the United States and leader of the free world, from 1977 to 1981.
“The President who cared” details his anguish over the hostage crisis in Iran, his triumph against all odds at Camp David, his secret communications with China’s Deng Xiaoping, and his dramatic and revealing encounters with Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev, West German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt, and other world leaders.
Mr. Carter also shares glimpses of his private world—his feelings of being an outsider in Washington, his relationship with Rosalynn, his pain about the attacks on his friends and his brother Billy.
Captivatingly written, this rich historical document delineates a morally responsible president who has continued to earn respect and admiration as a world statesman and advocate for the poor and repressed of all nations.

While You Were Drinking: A daughter’s journey by Lydia Bird

English | June 1st, 2014 | ASIN: B00KPO7FUO, ISBN: 1940838479 | 51 Pages | EPUB | 0.41 MB

What can a daughter do when the mother she loves is bent on destroying herself? With lyricism and honesty, memoirist Lydia Bird chronicles the unlikely course of her mother’s alcoholism—and the power and limitations of their bond.
Through stories spanning four decades and three continents, Bird embarks on an unsparing quest to understand her past and find forgiveness. In the process, she paints an unforgettable portrait of addiction, betrayal, and the unexpected joy that can prevail on the far side of loss.
Lydia Bird has lived on several continents and sailed alone across oceans. Her memoir Sonnet: One Woman’s Voyage from Maryland to Greece (North Point Press) evokes “the haven provided by a boat of one’s own” (the New Yorker). Lydia has written for Sports Illustrated, Sailing, and Sail and recorded for NPR’s Snap Judgment. Her short memoir While You Were Drinking is adapted from a longer work in progress, Ezekiel: A Memoir of Families. She works as a freelance editor and manuscript consultant.

Candy Girl: A Year in the Life of an Unlikely Stripper by Diablo Cody

English | December 2nd, 2013 | ASIN: B000OI1AAM, ISBN: 1592402739, 1592401821 | 228 Pages | EPUB | 0.49 MB

Decreed by David Letterman (tongue in cheek) on CBS TV’s The Late Show to be the pick of “Dave’s Book Club 2006,” Candy Girl is the story of a young writer who dared to bare it all as a stripper. At the age of twenty-four, Diablo Cody decided there had to be more to life than typing copy at an ad agency. She soon managed to find inspiration from a most unlikely source— amateur night at the seedy Skyway Lounge. While she doesn’t take home the prize that night, Diablo discovers to her surprise the act of stripping is an absolute thrill.
This is Diablo’s captivating fish-out-of-water story of her yearlong walk on the wild side, from quiet gentlemen’s clubs to multilevel sex palaces and glassed-in peep shows. In witty prose she gives readers a behind-the-scenes look at this industry through a writer’s keen eye, chronicling her descent into the skin trade and the effect it had on her self-image and her relationship with her now husband.
