by Stephen King, 11 22 63 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download 11 22 63 book, ON NOVEMBER 22, 1963, THREE SHOTS RANG OUT IN DALLAS, PRESIDENT KENNEDY DIED, AND THE WORLD CHANGED. WHAT IF YOU COULD CHANGE IT BACK? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King—who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer—takes readers on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it. It begins with Jake Epping, a thirty-five-year-old English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching GED classes. He asks his students to write about an event that changed their lives, and one essay blows him away—a gruesome, harrowing story about the night more than fifty years ago when Harry Dunning’s father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a sledgehammer. Reading the essay is a watershed moment for Jake, his life—like Harry’s, like America’s in 1963—turning on a dime. Not much later his friend Al, who owns the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to the past, a particular day in 1958. And Al enlists Jake to take over the mission that has become his obsession—to prevent the Kennedy assassination. So begins Jake’s new life as George Amberson, in a different world of Ike and JFK and Elvis, of big American cars and sock hops and cigarette smoke everywhere. From the dank little city of Derry, Maine (where there’s Dunning business to conduct), to the warmhearted small town of Jodie, Texas, where Jake falls dangerously in love, every turn is leading eventually, of course, to a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and to Dallas, where the past becomes heart-stoppingly suspenseful, and where history might not be history anymore. Time-travel has never been so believable. Or so terrifying.

Download 11 22 63 Enhanced Ebook book, One of the Ten Best Books of The New York Times Book Review Winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize Soon to be a miniseries from Hulu starring James Franco This enhanced ebook edition contains a 13-minute film, written and narrated by Stephen King and enhanced with historic footage from CBS News, that will take you back—as King’s novel does—to Kennedy era America. On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? Stephen King’s heart-stoppingly dramatic new novel is about a man who travels back in time to prevent the JFK assassination—a thousand page tour de force. Following his massively successful novel Under the Dome, King sweeps readers back in time to another moment—a real life moment—when everything went wrong: the JFK assassination. And he introduces readers to a character who has the power to change the course of history. Jake Epping is a thirty-five-year-old high school English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching adults in the GED program. He receives an essay from one of the students—a gruesome, harrowing first person story about the night 50 years ago when Harry Dunning’s father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a hammer. Harry escaped with a smashed leg, as evidenced by his crooked walk. Not much later, Jake’s friend Al, who runs the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to 1958. He enlists Jake on an insane—and insanely possible—mission to try to prevent the Kennedy assassination. So begins Jake’s new life as George Amberson and his new world of Elvis and JFK, of big American cars and sock hops, of a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and a beautiful high school librarian named Sadie Dunhill, who becomes the love of Jake’s life – a life that transgresses all the normal rules of time. A tribute to a simpler era and a devastating exercise in escalating suspense, 11/22/63 is Stephen King at his epic best.
by Jesse James Rolon, Mal Criado Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Mal Criado book, Child Abuse meets Child Torture. Thug Life meets Boxing and a Dark Past ruins a Bright Future in Rolon's Riveting story. "Mal Criado" substantiates hope amidst a painful childhood, troubled adolescence and directionless adulthood. Muhammad Ali, The Greatest, once quoted, "he who is not courageous to take risks will accomplish nothing in life." Author Jesse James Rolon proves this line right in his open, brutally detailed debut book titled Mal Criado. The author masterfully describes the delicate fragments that made up the life of Jack some time ago. Jack was an unwanted child, robbed of a relationship with his biological father and left to live in the hands of a sadistic mother. He was often, if not always, literally beaten up to nothingness, whipped and wounded with objects, or drowned in a basin of water to his very last breath. The list of unimaginable abuses goes on. He cried himself to sleep repeatedly, yearning for the love and affection of a mother he never had. Fed up with the purposeless and incessant beatings, he resorted to run away, hoping things would be better far from home. The foster homes he was placed in were by far the worst remedy to a delicate mind. At juvenile detention, things got even worse living with disturbed teens. He got into a lot of fights and joined a gang. Nonetheless, he felt futile and desolate with the violent company. Growing up in hate was a choice he barely had control of. But, Jack eventually looked for a deeper purpose in life. A peer mediation program opens his eyes to a life far different from the one he already lived. Little by little, time passed as he realized there were more than just the fights, revenge and the gang to live for. This is when he redirects his anger in boxing. He becomes champion in his weight class, graduates high school and meets the girl of his dreams. Mal Criado, despite the tortures life can put one through, depicts how a person has a choice to find goodness and succeed in a ruthless, wicked world. But can Jack overcome the shadows of his dark past that tower over him since his childhood?

by Isabel Wilkerson, The Warmth Of Other Suns Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Warmth Of Other Suns book, 'A landmark piece of non-fiction' Janet Maslin, The New York Times From the winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this is one of the great untold stories of American history: the migration of black citizens who fled the south and went north in search of a better life From 1915 to 1970, an exodus of almost six million people would change the face of America. With stunning historical detail, Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Isabel Wilkerson gives us this definitive, vividly dramatic account of how these journeys unfolded. Based on interviews with more than a thousand people, and access to new data and official records, The Warmth of Other Suns tells the story of America's Great Migration through the lives of three unique individuals: Ida Mae Gladney, who in 1937 left sharecropping and prejudice in Mississippi for Chicago, where she achieved quiet blue-collar success and, in old age, voted for Barack Obama when he ran for an Illinois Senate seat; sharp and quick-tempered George Starling, who in 1945 fled Florida for Harlem, where he endangered his job fighting for civil rights, saw his family fall, and finally found peace in God; and Robert Foster, who left Louisiana in 1953 to pursue a medical career, the personal physician to Ray Charles as part of a glitteringly successful medical career. Wilkerson brilliantly captures their first treacherous and exhausting cross-country journeys, as well as how they changed their new homes forever. 'You will never forget these people' Gay Talese 'A brilliant and stirring epic' John Stauffer, Wall Street Journal 'The mass migration of African Americans out of the US south forever changed the country's cultural fabric - and Wilkerson's history of this period is full of sacrifice and hope ... a long overdue account' Lettecha Johnson, Guardian 'A deeply affecting, finely crafted and heroic book. . . .Wilkerson has taken on one of the most important demographic upheavals of the past century and told it through the lives of three people ... lyrical and tragic' Jill Lepore, New Yorker
by Al Jourgensen, Ministry Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Ministry book, Ministry is a memoir both ugly and captivating, revealing Al Jourgensen as a man who lived a hard life his own way without making compromises. He survived prolonged drug addiction -- twenty-two years of chronic heroin, cocaine, and alcohol abuse, to be more precise -- before cleaning up, straightening out, and finding new reasons to live. During his career, Jourgensen has engaged in all of the rock 'n' roll clich's regarding decadence and debauchery and invented new forms of previously unachieved nihilism. Despite this and his addictions, he created seven seminal albums, including the bonafide, hugely influential classic The Land of Rape and Honey, 1989's The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste, and 1992's blockbuster Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed. Ministry imparts the epic life of Al Jourgensen, a survivor who tempted fate, beat the odds, persevered, and put the pieces back together after unraveling completely.
by Joyce Porter, The Chinks In The Curtain Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Chinks In The Curtain book, The Chinks in the Curtain features the return of that most reluctant spy Edmund Brown, first met in Sour Cream with Everything. Returning ignominiously from Russia to England, he is dispatched to Paris to discover why a source of information has dried up. He infiltrates the household of a Russian émigré through the salacious, if somewhat skeletal, embraces of the Prince’s niece. There he uncovers a plot to restore the old regime to Russia, hatched by the Prince and a Rasputin-like priest whose motto is “Give God something to forgive you for.” But the underlying sinister implications of the plot elude our hero until the eleventh hour. Joyce Porter irreverently juggles the familiar paraphernalia of midnight tiptoeing, hidden microphones and conniving seduction into a hilarious travesty of the spy story.
by Bernadette Penelope Byrd, The People Of Harmony Baptist Church Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The People Of Harmony Baptist Church book, The people in each chapter have gone through many problems, physical and mental abuse, death, suicide, murder, alcoholism, drugs, marriage, divorce, children and adoption. Sometime we as Christians forget that being a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in us. Let the truth be told, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the people that did you wrong or harmed you in anyway, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that that situation is over, you cannot move forward and God cannot bless you and we all want to be blessed. *Matthew 6:14-15 "For if you forgive man and or woman when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But, if you do not forgive man and or woman their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins." The sense of the reality of spiritual things, and the power to rest the thought upon them, is as various as the power of flight in different birds. See a great eagle soaring without effort high in the air, or circling with undazzled eyes towards the sun! A noble bird with such powers of flight and of sight pictures an affection for spiritual thought of the strongest, most searching kind, which rises highest above superficial appearances and takes the most comprehensive views of like, the most in accord with the Divine wisdom. *Isaiah 40:31 "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles."
by Tom Philbin, I Monster Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download I Monster book, What goes through the dark minds of such notorious killers as Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, David Berkowitz ("Son of Sam"), John Wayne Gacy, Dennis Rader (the "BTK Killer"), and others? In this chilling book, you’ll read exactly what they were thinking in their own words as they committed horrible crimes. Using court transcripts and police interviews, veteran true-crime and crime-fiction writer Tom Philbin has compiled the testimony of twenty infamous serial killers—nineteen men and one woman. For fans of crime stories who look for realism, this book is like no other. The descriptions couldn’t be more realistic since, in effect, the book is written by the serial killers themselves. Their words range from the bizarre and weirdly fascinating to the revolting and horrific. In each case, Philbin provides a background profile to give readers a sense of the context from which these monsters emerged. Though they come from different backgrounds, nationalities, and generations, their words do reveal certain common elements. Not one evinces any sense of compassion or sensitivity in regard to their victims. They appear to be unable to control the impulses that lead them to kill. And in many cases, they derive a perverse sexual satisfaction from their deeds. Taking true-crime reading to a new level of immediacy, this disturbing book offers a glimpse into the worst side of human nature.
