Why not travel the world with this great book?

(You don’t even have to leave your couch!)

 

This book will transport you to the greatest of metropolises and the most beautiful cities from around the globe – from Africa to Asia and “Down Under,” and from Europe to North and South America. Experience fascinating insights into the canyon-like streets of modern super-cities, or take a stroll through picturesque lanes all across the continents.  These cities have so much to tell – about the greatest events in world history, and also the local stories that constitute the life of a city, every single day.

We’ll always love our Packers!

(and even if you’re not a Packers fan, it would make a good gift for your favorite Packers fan)

 

The Green Bay Packers are like no other franchise in the NFL.  Created in 1919 from the imagination, determination, and grit of men like Curly Lambeau, the Packers have become one of the most identifiable sports franchises in the country, with devoted fans all around the world.  And those fans are drawn to the Packers for the same reasons – the small-town, blue-collar attitude and the determination to succeed despite the odds.  As a result, even casual football fans know about Lambeau Field and Vince Lombardi, the Ice Bowl, Reggie White, Brett Favre, and Aaron Rodgers.  In many ways, the Green Bay Packers are the NFL, and because of their rich history, they will always hold a special place in the hearts of Americans.

Who really killed Kennedy?

cover.jpg

John F. Kennedy was one of the most beloved presidents and is now one of the most known.  However, ever since his assassination there has existed this cloud of mystery hovering over the exact circumstances of his death.  Since the assassination many different theories have popped up to attempt to explain inconsistencies and coincidences in the evidence.  Corsi has a Harvard Ph.D. in political science and has had many New York Times Best Sellers.  To write this book he looked through thousands of documents in the JFK Presidential library in addition to virtually every book written on the assassination.

What do you do to survive?

 

Lord of the Flies remains as provocative today as when it was first published in 1954, igniting passionate debate with its startling, brutal portrait of human nature. Though critically acclaimed, it was largely ignored upon its initial publication. Yet soon it became a cult favorite among both students and literary critics who compared it to J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye in its influence on modern thought and literature.

Labeled a parable, an allegory, a myth, a morality tale, a parody, a political treatise, even a vision of the apocalypse, Lord of the Flies has established itself as a true classic.
