"A rare and riveting first-hand account of the terror and torture inflicted by ISIS on young Iraqi Yazidi women, and an inspiring personal story of bravery and resilience in the face of unspeakable horrors. In the early summer of 2014, Farida Khalaf was a typical Yazidi teenager living with her parents and three brothers in her village in the mountains of Northern Iraq. In one horrific day, she lost everything: ISIS invaded her village, destroyed her family, and sold her into sexual slavery. The Girl Who Escaped ISIS is her incredible account of captivity and describes how she defied the odds and escaped a life of torture, in order to share her story with the world. Devastating and inspiring, this is an astonishing, intimate account of courage and hope in the face of appalling violence"--

One of the true classics of American literature, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has stirred the imagination of young and old alike for over four generations. This is probably one of the most beautiful digital version ever made of this story, containing over 100 gorgeous illustrations. The story chronicles the adventures of a girl named Dorothy Gale in the Land of Oz. As Baum says in the introduction "It aspires to being a modernized fairy tale, in which the wonderment and joy are retained and the heartaches and nightmares are left out." And it succeeds wonderfully. It is one of the best-known stories in American popular culture and has been widely translated.

La città di Roma, e in particolare una bella periferia di nuova costruzione, descritta con un po’ di fantasia, con gente perbene che vive rinchiusa in un ghetto dorato, è al centro del romanzo. Protagonista è un elegante edificio. Ma la realtà è fluida e pronta a mutare. In pochi decenni tutto cambia e si inasprisce. Solo resta, brillante e sincera, la vera amicizia, fatta anche di leggerezza e di superficiale tenera follia. È la storia di un gruppo di amici legati indissolubilmente da un cancello giallo, da una seria condivisione di interessi e di convinzioni morali e politiche. La leggiadra e buffa danza di un longevo sentimento di intesa. Intorno a loro l’universo, il grande mondo esterno, gira audace, rumoroso, senza significato alcuno. «La vita non ha alcun senso; il senso glielo diamo noi», diceva la grande poetessa Alda Merini. «L’amicizia percorre danzando la terra, recando a noi tutti l’appello di aprire gli occhi sulla felicità». (Epicuro) «L’amicizia è un’anima sola che vive in più corpi». (Aristotele) Assiomi antichi, come l’origine della nostra cultura. Maria Luisa Brovia è nata in Piemonte, poi si è trasferita a Roma, dove si è laureata in psicologia applicativa all’Università Statale “La Sapienza”. Ama scrivere da dieci anni, per lasciare, ai quattro amatissimi figli, una specie di eredità spirituale. Ha pubblicato due libri: “I sentieri del mio giardino”, premiato nel 2007 con una segnalazione nell’ambito del premio Cesare Pavese, e “Gemini. Sotto il segno dei Gemelli”. “Il piacere del vino”, saggio sull’importanza del vino nella letteratura, nell’arte e nel cinema, ha vinto il Primo Premio, per la narrativa inedita, sempre presso il premio Cesare Pavese. Scrive racconti per alcune riviste. Altri due romanzi sono ancora inediti, in attesa di essere pubblicati.

A novel of high adventure, great storytelling and moral purpose, based on an extraordinary true story of eight years in the Bombay underworld. 'In the early 80s, Gregory David Roberts, an armed robber and heroin addict, escaped from an Australian prison to India, where he lived in a Bombay slum. There, he established a free health clinic and also joined the mafia, working as a money launderer, forger and street soldier. He found time to learn Hindi and Marathi, fall in love, and spend time being worked over in an Indian jail. Then, in case anyone thought he was slacking, he acted in Bollywood and fought with the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan . . . Amazingly, Roberts wrote Shantaram three times after prison guards trashed the first two versions. It's a profound tribute to his willpower . . . At once a high-kicking, eye-gouging adventure, a love saga and a savage yet tenderly lyrical fugitive vision.' Time Out

I'm no coward. I want to make that perfectly clear. But after my life turned into a horror movie, I take fear a lot more seriously now. I finally became Dr. Carrie Ames just eight months ago. Then I was attacked in the hospital morgue by a vampire. Just my luck. So now I'm a vampire, and it turns out I have a blood tie to the monster who sired me. The tie works like an invisible leash and I'm bound to him no matter what I do. And of course he's one of the most evil vampires on earth. With my sire hell-bent on turning me into a soulless killer and his sworn enemy set to exterminate me, things couldn't get much worse — except I'm attracted to them both. Drinking blood, living as an immortal demon and being a pawn between two warring vampire factions isn't exactly how I'd imagined my future. But as my father used to say, the only way to conquer fear is to face it. So that's what I'll do. Fangs bared.

Until an exquisite creature comes to kill him, inadvertently saving him instead. A beautiful assassin dispatched to destroy him. . .When Kaderin the Cold Hearted lost her two beloved sisters long ago, a benevolent force deadened her sorrow-accidentally extinguishing all of her emotions.

The prize is a key powerful enough to resurrect her sisters. Not understanding the key's import, Sebastian hinders her against other opponents by using her new feelings to seduce her and earn her love. But when Kaderin is forced to choose between finally killing Sebastian and reuniting her family, how can she live without either. . . ?
