Golden Son Book Excerpt:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Red Rising hit the ground running and wasted no time becoming a sensation. Golden Son continues the stunning saga of Darrow, a rebel forged by tragedy, battling to lead his oppressed people to freedom. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR, BUZZFEED, AND BOOKLIST • “Gripping . . . On virtually every level, this is a sequel that hates sequels—a perfect fit for a hero who already defies the tropes. [Grade:] A”—Entertainment Weekly As a Red, Darrow grew up working the mines deep beneath the surface of Mars, enduring backbreaking labor while dreaming of the better future he was building for his descendants. But the Society he faithfully served was built on lies. Darrow’s kind have been betrayed and denied by their elitist masters, the Golds—and their only path to liberation is revolution. And so Darrow sacrifices himself in the name of the greater good for which Eo, his true love and inspiration, laid down her own life. He becomes a Gold, infiltrating their privileged realm so that he can destroy it from within. A lamb among wolves in a cruel world, Darrow finds friendship, respect, and even love—but also the wrath of powerful rivals. To wage and win the war that will change humankind’s destiny, Darrow must confront the treachery arrayed against him, overcome his all-too-human desire for retribution—and strive not for violent revolt but a hopeful rebirth. Though the road ahead is fraught with danger and deceit, Darrow must choose to follow Eo’s principles of love and justice to free his people. He must live for more. Praise for Golden Son “Stirring . . . Comparisons to The Hunger Games and Game of Thrones series are inevitable, for this tale has elements of both.”—Kirkus Reviews “Brown writes layered, flawed characters . . . but plot is his most breathtaking strength. . . . Every action seems to flow into the next.”—NPR Don’t miss any of Pierce Brown’s Red Rising Saga: RED RISING • GOLDEN SON • MORNING STAR • IRON GOLD • DARK AGE

A Drop of Golden Sun Book Excerpt:

I got the idea to write this biography of my husband about 1 year after he died. I was awake in the middle of the night and the idea came to me out of the blue. I knew immediately that I wanted to tell others what a wonderful person I had the privilege to be married to for 40 years and how his illness and death affected our lives. Since he had become ill, I was with him and able to use my nursing skills from far back when i was in training at Charity Hospital School of Nursing. It was difficult but I was so glad that I could take care of him and not depend on others. I was well qualified as an RN to meet his needs and I did it with caring and love. I am a native Louisianan and have lived in a small rural town called Gramercy for all of my life. I love music and am an accomplished pianist, vocalist and songwriter., I have been active also in community theater and have had several lead roles, the best of which I think was Dolly Levi, in the title production of "Hello Dolly" I am also the choir director at my church and am the cantor and sometimes also the organist. Music holds a special place in my heart as it can express feelings that sometimes are unable to be spoken. In fact, I sang at my parents' funeral, and at Ray's funeral. It was my way to give closure to some of my grief. I plan to retire from nursing after 45 years and hope to be able to spend more time with my grandchildren, whom I love dearly, my daughter who lives with me and my two canine companions, Zoe, a 10 year old Maltipoo and Honeybunn, a 4 year old Bichon Frise. An added note about this book is that some of the proceeds will go to Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center in Baton Rouge, La. where my mother and husband were patients and where I am now a patient.

The Jews of Long Island Book Excerpt:

In an engaging narrative, The Jews of Long Island tells the story of how Jewish communities were established and developed east of New York City, from Great Neck to Greenport and Cedarhurst to Sag Harbor. Including peddlers, farmers, and factory workers struggling to make a living, as well as successful merchants and even wealthy industrialists like the Guggenheims, Brad Kolodny spent six years researching how, when, and why Jewish families settled and thrived there. Archival material, including census records, newspaper accounts, never-before-published photos, and personal family histories illuminate Jewish life and experiences during these formative years. With over 4,400 names of people who lived in Nassau and Suffolk counties prior to the end of World War I, The Jews of Long Island is a fascinating history of those who laid the foundation for what has become the fourth largest Jewish community in the United States today.

The Works of Eugene Field Vol X Second Book of Tales Book Excerpt:

The Works of Eugene Field is a collection of poetry and essays by American author Eugene Field, originally published by Charles Scribner's Sons in 1896 under the title The Writings in Prose and Verse of Eugene Field. Known for his children's poetry, especially the light-hearted "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod," Field was a journalist who found his niche in poetry and humor writing. The original collection, published after Field's death and including artwork and letters from the author, is a charming set of books compiling all his works. Republished here for young readers and collectors of Americana, The Works of Eugene Field is sure to delight audiences young and old. Volume X of this twelve-volume set, Second Book of Tales, despite the title, is the third collection of short stories and prose in the series. It includes three stories that were unpublished in book form at the time of Field's death. There is an Introduction by American author and artist F. Hopkinson Smith. EUGENE FIELD (1850-1895) was an American author known for his humorous essays and children's poetry. Interested in many subjects and unable to decide what to do with his life, Field attended three colleges-Williams College, Knox College, and University of Missouri-tried his hand at acting, law, and journalism, and traveled Europe before meeting his wife and becoming city editor for the St. Joseph Gazette in St. Joseph, Missouri. He wrote and edited for several newspapers, establishing himself as a humor writer and publishing poetry. He died of a heart-attack at 45.

The Wish Fulfilling Golden Sun of the Mahayana Thought Training Directing in the Short Cut Path to Enlightenment eBook Book Excerpt:

The Wish-Fulfilling Golden Sun of the Mahayana Thought Training was used as textbook for the third (October 1972) through seventh (November 1974) Kopan meditation courses and contains Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s summaries of and meditations on many important topics from the lam-rim. The textbook is currently recommended as part of FPMT Education Services’ Discovering Buddhism course. From the original preface, written by Lama Zopa Rinpoche: "This book has not been written because there is some new Dharma that was not shown by Guru Shakyamuni. And because of my limited-experience realizations, in no way I have deserved to write such a book, and there is scant hope that it can benefit others. "But in view of the remarkable fact that in this time, already beyond the period of the five degenerations and an age in which there is the great danger of atomic explosion, an increasing number of Westerners are finding the Buddhadharma as they seek like blind men opening their eye, and as it is extremely important to make meaningful this once-received Wisdom Eye, which analyses all dharmas, clearly discriminating between what to avoid and what to practise, my depthlessly kind venerable Guru, Thubten Yeshe, has given the Vajra instruction that it is necessary to write a book such as this in English." 2016 edition, 292 pages.
