Book Description :

"Delicious . . . richly riveting . . . The Vacationers offers all the delights of a fluffy, read-it-with-sunglasses-on-the-beach read, made substantial by the exceptional wit, insight, intelligence and talents of its author.”—People (four stars) An irresistible, deftly observed novel from the New York Times-bestselling author of Modern Lovers, about the secrets, joys, and jealousies that rise to the surface over the course of an American family’s two-week stay in Mallorca. For the Posts, a two-week trip to the Balearic island of Mallorca with their extended family and friends is a celebration: Franny and Jim are observing their thirty-fifth wedding anniversary, and their daughter, Sylvia, has graduated from high school. The sunlit island, its mountains and beaches, its tapas and tennis courts, also promise an escape from the tensions simmering at home in Manhattan. But all does not go according to plan: over the course of the vacation, secrets come to light, old and new humiliations are experienced, childhood rivalries resurface, and ancient wounds are exacerbated. This is a story of the sides of ourselves that we choose to show and those we try to conceal, of the ways we tear each other down and build each other up again, and the bonds that ultimately hold us together. With wry humor and tremendous heart, Emma Straub delivers a richly satisfying story of a family in the midst of a maelstrom of change, emerging irrevocably altered yet whole.

Franny is good at being friendly in public, but always finds fault in Jim. Jim and Sylvia fall asleep in their own beds. Franny goes to the local market to buy food for dinner. Franny thinks about Jim’s retirement and becomes angry when she admits to herself that he did not stop working for the same reasons most men do. Franny has a compulsive eating problem. She does not see it as a problem, however, as compared to those who take illegal drugs. Sylvia wakes up and takes a shower...

Book Description :

“It’s ‘Friends’ meets ‘Almost Famous’ meets the beach read you’ll be recommending all summer.” –TheSkimm From the author of the New York Times bestseller The Vacationers, a smart, highly entertaining novel about a tight-knit group of friends from college— and what it means to finally grow up, well after adulthood has set in. Friends and former college bandmates Elizabeth and Andrew and Zoe have watched one another marry, buy real estate, and start businesses and families, all while trying to hold on to the identities of their youth. But nothing ages them like having to suddenly pass the torch (of sexuality, independence, and the ineffable alchemy of cool) to their own offspring. Back in the band's heyday, Elizabeth put on a snarl over her Midwestern smile, Andrew let his unwashed hair grow past his chin, and Zoe was the lesbian all the straight women wanted to sleep with. Now nearing fifty, they all live within shouting distance in the same neighborhood deep in gentrified Brooklyn, and the trappings of the adult world seem to have arrived with ease. But the summer that their children reach maturity (and start sleeping together), the fabric of the adult lives suddenly begins to unravel, and the secrets and revelations that are finally let loose—about themselves, and about the famous fourth band member who soared and fell without them—can never be reclaimed. Straub packs wisdom and insight and humor together in a satisfying book about neighbors and nosiness, ambition and pleasure, the excitement of youth, the shock of middle age, and the fact that our passions—be they food, or friendship, or music—never go away, they just evolve and grow along with us.

Quantum of Riches By: Maggie Payne Sir Thomas Wallace of Scotland inherited the family clipper ship business upon the death of his parents during a storm in the South China Sea. He was six years old. Raised by his bachelor Uncle Cameron Wallace, he learned everything about sailing and navigation as he sailed the five oceans and seven seas. As an adult, Sir Thomas married and fathered twin sons; his wife died in childbirth. The twins were raised by their maternal grandparents in London. Sir Thomas discovers a French Land Grant, granted to his grandfather prior to the Louisiana Purchase, and passed down to future generations. He sets sail for America and New Orleans. Finding the land described in the Land Grant, covered with hundred-year-old moss-covered oak trees and fields of purple irises, he travels to Washington to lay claim to the land. Sir Thomas receives title from the American President, and decides this will be his family home. Deploring slavery, Sir Thomas names his home Three Oaks Farm. The farm is a reflection of a man’s worth and yet, Sir Thomas has so little time to cherish Three Oaks. His surviving heir, young Thomas, marries and makes Three Oaks his home until tragedy comes along and takes all he loves away… or did it?

Are you interested in raising your income without much effort? How would it feel to make thousands of dollars every month with a few simple investments? Investing in real estate is by far one of the most profitable and evergreen ways of making money without putting in much effort into it. In fact, having a few well-chosen real estate investments in your portfolio could generate a high monthly income for decades with just a tiny bit of maintenance work. What this would mean is that YOU would earn money every month without having to actually have a day job. This is also known as passive income. In this book, we present seven very profitable ways that ANYONE can use to make money in real estate. These ways are all proven to work and can be pursued by the majority of the population (even if you're a bit lazy). Please note that we do not go in depth on all of the methods presented in this book. This book was created to give you useful investment ideas that you can actually pursue. Although real estate investments can provide a steady cash flow for decades, there's still a possibility that you can lose your hard-earned money if you're doing it wrong. The common mistake among new investors is that they think that they know it all. No matter what you put your money on, whether it's stocks, funds, cryptocurrencies, or properties, you need to know what you're doing or else you're going to fail. Investing without having a clue about what you're putting your money on is not even considered investing. That is known as gambling. What's in it for you when downloading this book today?

Book Description :

In this arresting first novel about love and liberation, Italy is not just a place of popes and piazzas, but a cauldron of heady politics and equally heated passions. At its center is Catherine Davidson, a young American who gets caught up in the excitement of an Eternal City on edge: women are taking to the streets to demand their rights, homegrown terrorists kneecapping their hapless targets, poor immigrants swelling the city's underbelly. Determined not to be a bystander to history nor to let her southern upbringing sabotage her newfound independence, Catherine nonetheless gets in over her head. Viewed with a sympathetic yet sharp eye by a third-person narrator, Catherine wrestles with the fact that her personal behavior doesn't dovetail with her political beliefs and with the failure to live up to the expectations of others. While she revels in two love affairs, one with an open-minded Roman and the other with a refugee from Eritrea, they each expose her insecurities and jealousies. It is an unlikely figure from Catherine's past, however, who resets the course of her life: her former stepmother, a Dane who has returned to Europe after a decade in the South. Despite having ill-treated this woman throughout the marriage, Catherine finds common ground and new respect for her - so much so that she makes a momentous decision.

Book Description :

Is there a right way to study how the brain works? Following the empiricist's tradition, the most common approach involves the study of neural reactions to stimuli presented by an experimenter. This 'outside-in' method fueled a generation of brain research and now must confront hidden assumptions about causation and concepts that may not hold neatly for systems that act and react. György Buzsáki's The Brain from Inside Out examines why the outside-in framework for understanding brain function have become stagnant and points to new directions for understanding neural function. Building upon the success of Rhythms of the Brain, Professor Buzsáki presents the brain as a foretelling device that interacts with its environment through action and the examination of action's consequence. Consider that our brains are initially filled with nonsense patterns, all of which are gibberish until grounded by action-based interactions. By matching these nonsense "words" to the outcomes of action, they acquire meaning. Once its circuits are "calibrated" by action and experience, the brain can disengage from its sensors and actuators, and examine "what happens if" scenarios by peeking into its own computation, a process that we refer to as cognition. The Brain from Inside Out explains why our brain is not an information-absorbing coding device, as it is often portrayed, but a venture-seeking explorer constantly controlling the body to test hypotheses. Our brain does not process information: it creates it.
