Summary

Anna Karenina tells of the doomed love affair between the sensuous and rebellious Anna and the dashing officer, Count Vronsky. Tragedy unfolds as Anna rejects her passionless marriage and must endure the hypocrisies of society. Set against a vast and richly textured canvas of nineteenth-century Russia, the novel's seven major characters create a dynamic imbalance, playing out the contrasts of city and country life and all the variations on love and family happiness.

    Jason Dalton was driving through downtown Kalamazoo killing people, seemingly at random. 
    But this was not a night of random slaughter. There was a method to the madness of Jason 's mass murder spree. An app on Jason's iPhone that glowed like the devil was telling him whom to kill.  
    It was a terrifying night in February 2016 as the people of Kalamazoo, Mich. stayed glued to their TVs and radios while bodies were falling and gunfire was reported throughout the city. Each time Jason was pulling the trigger. Each time the devil in his smartphone was telling him who should live and who should die. 
    Mothers, fathers, husbands, and wives frantically texted their loved ones to make sure they were not among the dead. 
    This is the story of the people Jason Dalton allegedly killed, those who survived, those who sacrificed themselves to save others, and how Jason was able to stay one step ahead of the police officers until the devil on his smartphone told Jason to stop killing on this blood-soaked night in Kalamazoo. 
    The Devil Made Him Do It: A Shocking True Crime Story of Mass Murder that Kalamazoo, Mich. will never forget.

    In The Book of Marvels, award-winning poet Lorna Crozier offers a delightful series of prose meditations on household objects: everything from doorknobs, washing machines, rakes, and zippers to the kitchen sink. Operating as a kind of a literary detective, Crozier brings her rapt attention to the everyday things she explores, uncovering the mystery that lies at their essence. She offers tantalizing glimpses of the household's inhabitants, too, probing hearts, brains, noses, and navels. Longing, exuberance, and grief colour her reflections on the familiar and the concrete, causing them at times to resemble folktales or parables.Each of the vignettes in The Book of Marvels stands alone, but the connections are intricate; as in life, each object gains meaning from its juxtaposition with others. Crozier approaches her investigations with a childlike curiosity, an adult bemusement, and an unfailing sense of metaphor and mischief. With both charm and mordant wit, she animates the panoply of wonders to be found everywhere around and in us.

    A Green Beret’s gripping memoir of American Special Forces in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War.   In 1970, on his second tour to Vietnam, Nick Brokhausen served in Recon Team Habu, CCN. Officially, it was known as the Studies and Observations group. In fact, this Special Forces squad, which Brokhausen calls “an unwashed, profane, ribald, joyously alive fraternity,” undertook some of the most dangerous and suicidal reconnaissance missions ever in the enemy-controlled territory of Cambodia and Laos. But they didn’t infiltrate the jungles alone. They fought alongside the Montagnards—oppressed minorities from the mountain highlands, trained by the US military in guerilla tactics, armed, accustomed to the wild, and fully engaged in a war against the North Vietnamese. Together this small unit formed the backbone of ground reconnaissance in the Republic of Vietnam, racking up medals for valor—but at a terrible cost.   “In colorful, military-jargon-laced prose leavened by gallows humor, Brokhausen pulls few punches describing what it was like to navigate remote jungle terrain under the constant threat of enemy fire. A smartly written, insider’s view of one rarely seen Vietnam War battleground.” —Booklist “[An] exceptionally raw look at the Vietnam War just at the apex of its unpopularity. . . . This battle-scarred memoir is an excellent tribute to the generation that fought, laughed, and died in Southeast Asia.” —New York Journal of Books

    As a kid growing up, I did not know much about my life and following rules from others. I just did what I was told; whether it was right or wrong, I did it. I had no one to look up to other than Mom and Jesus. Jesus always led me in the right direction and the right way, and he still does. No matter what, I still remember what Mom used to say to me, Always pray to Jesus and trust in him. I am a very strong believer in Jesus. I do my best to love and help people. What would Jesus do?
