Pandora’s Reading Room (Vol. 1)

by Pandora Poikilos, Bruno McGrath

Text-to-Speech and Lending: Enabled
Here’s the set-up:

A glimmer of hope. A pinch of horror. A sprinkle of desire and a journey of mixed emotions. This is a compilation of short stories and additionally features a special selection of books and blogs for you to discover.

Story 1 – Mirror Me Martha
Hawley Mansion was to have been the beginning of their lives together but a nasty accident leaves Martha moving into the mansion alone and desperately grieving. She gets off on the wrong foot with her service staff and starts to experience strange incidents. She even claims that a red robin is spying on her. Has grief swallowed Martha’s sanity or does Hawley Mansion really have a secret?

Story 2 – Drive On Hope
Mary and Brian had it all planned out as they headed for the city of bright lights, London from the small coastal town of Scarborough. They had the drive to succeed, the will to be different and the brevity to move away from their past. Success was theirs and nothing or no one could stop them. But one year later and still living in their car would they ever be able to drive on hope?

Story 3 – Jane Holden is like any other student at Pickering University. Away from home for the first time, she looks forward to having her social calendar packed with activities and to meeting new people. But an unexpected enemy changes all of this. She goes from scholarship recipient to social outcast. Will life be normal again? Will she ever recover from the cat that barked?

Story 4 – Globetrotting With Cathy Dixon
Meet Cathy Dixon from Frequent Traveller. From the blue oceans of Antigua to the bustling streets of Vietnam, the racing adrenaline at the Green Hell, the devastating natural disaster in Japan and the stunning architecture in Germany, Cathy finds herself in a whirlwind of fine dining, plush clothes and sheer extravagance. But is perfection a mask for untold disaster?

Special Feature – Books, Blogs & Smiles 1
January to March 2012. A daily dose of books, blogs and quotes from all corners of the BlogSphere. Whether you’re having a good day or a bad day, this eBook is bound to offer you a smile or two.

Here’s the set-up:

Are you mad as hell?

At last, Stephen Windwalker provides the concise tell-it-like-it-is narrative for which we have all been waiting: How did we get here, how much worse is it going to get, and what can we do to protect ourselves, our families, and our future?

The time for seeing the world through a rose-colored lens is long over. Simple truths that run deep through Windwalker’s writing come directly from years of helping working and retired people stand up for economic justice as one of the country’s top community organizers. Readers of Windwalker’s books on technology and commerce have come to appreciate the thoughtfulness and intellectual depth with which he has illuminated those subjects. Now he applies the same intelligent focus to a far more daunting task: helping us all to see how, together, we can climb out of the deep hole that we have dug together for ourselves, our children and grandchildren. With a succinct explanation of the relentless waves that continue to drown national economies around the world, he clears the fog of denial to reveal a rolling global depression that could last through much of the coming decade.
