    In No Shortage of Good Days John Gierach takes listeners from the Smokies in Tennessee to his home waters in Colorado, from the Canadian Maritimes to Mexico-saltwater or fresh, it's all fishing and all irresistible. As always he writes perceptively about a wide range of subjects: the charm of familiar waters, the etiquette of working with new fishing guides, night fishing when the trout and the mosquitoes are both biting, and fishing snobbery, a pitfall he seems to have largely avoided: "A friend and I recently realized that making fly-fishing a way of life instead of a hobby has made us a couple of pretty one-dimensional characters. On the other hand, we agreed we're two of the happiest people we know, albeit in a simple-minded sort of way."Gierach again demonstrates the wit, eloquence, and insight that have become his trademarks. No Shortage of Good Days is the next best thing to a day of fishing.

    Witnessing the Egyptian revolution in 2011, chanting with the crowds “Bread, Freedom, Social Justice,” and living all its hopes and downfall, author and political activist A. I. Shoukry now finds himself in despair and fear to lose his freedom. He decided to take a break from politics and start running, but will he find freedom? 
    Shoukry describes his running moments like a window with a sunrise view for a prisoner kept in solitary confinement. This book isn’t just about running; It’s a memoir about self-discovery and searching for freedom and love of life. It's about the integration of body, mind, and soul. It’s about family and friends, relationships, and work. 
    From being barely able to run 500 meters, he became a half-marathon runner aged 39. In this book, Shoukry explores the meanings of faith, pain, stress, fear, death, life, solitude, happiness, and passion. He has truly put his heart on paper. 
    If you’ve ever dreamed of running—for your health, for your mind, for therapy, or even for parliament, this book is for you. Whether you’re a newbie runner, a seasoned pro, or have never donned a pair of running shoes but want to start—open this book and start running with Ahmed through Egypt.

    I HAD A HUNCH WE’D BE CHAMPIONS! 
     The most unlikely story in the history of sport, told by our greatest football writer. 
     On 25th March 2015, when King Richard III, recently rescued from a municipal car park, was reburied in Leicester Cathedral, his beloved football team had just lost 4-3 to Tottenham Hotspur and were bottom of the Premier League, relegation certainties. With King Richard finally at rest, everything changed for Leicester City. 
    Here, in his own words, King Richard III tells this, the most remarkable sporting story of all time how 5,000-1 Premier League outsiders became champions: the goals, the games, the dressing-room banter. He gives us the Jamie Vardy story, from prosthetic-limb factory employee to the most celebrated striker this side of the River Soar; Mahrez, the great Muslim dynamo from Algeria, once stuck in the French seventh tier; the dark days of the sex video and the late December wobble; Lords Drinkwater, Albrighton and the great Tinkerman from Italy, all of them heroes of Shakespearean proportions. 
     This isn’t a fairy-tale, this really happened. From the unsanctioned hand of a much-loved Royal, the greatest football book ever written.

    Thinner Leaner Stronger: The Simple Science of Building the Ultimate Female Body by Michael Matthews Book Summary Abbey Beatha 
    (Disclaimer: This is NOT the original book.) 
    Getting the body of your dreams is not an unattainable paradise anymore. 
    Let me guess, you have been trying to hit the gym as many times as you can for as long as your body can muster and still, after so much hard work, you have gotten nothing. We have all been there. However, with Thinner Leaner Stronger you can finally obtain the body you have always desired. No more overworking yourself in the gym, no more false hopes created by false promises. Michael Matthews has created the ultimate guide for female bodybuilding. 
    (Note: This summary is wholly written and published by Abbey Beathan. It is not affiliated with the original author in any way 
    "Cardio can enhance fat loss in two ways—burning calories and speeding up your metabolic rate—but that's it."—Michael Matthews 
    Thinner Leaner Stronger is an outstanding book for two reasons, first of all, it will get you great results in a relatively short amount of time but also because there are not many female bodybuilding books and if you take into account that most of them are not teaching what you need to learn, then there are fewer out there. However, there is finally a book that will give to you what was promised if you are willing to put the effort. 
    Michael Matthews is happy to show you the path to get the "Hollywood babe" body, if you are willing to take the chance.
