21 Bitching [MultiFormat]
by Marion Meade

Little was shared about the chats happening behind closed doors where everyday women talked to women without the threat of men listening in. But, all that changed with the book BITCHING.

22 Black Raspberries [MultiFormat]
by Jeanine Malarsky
  Plagued by religious friction, violent fights and a belief, "the grass is always greener", my peripatetic parents dragged us five children in search of the next good farm deal.

I was the middle child, unwanted from birth and over-looked while growing up. Though all five of us are deeply scarred, sometimes being the least loved can be your salvation. (Published: 2008)

25 Brave New World Revisited [Secure eReader]
by Aldous Huxley
  In 1958, Aldous Huxley wrote what might be called a sequel to his novel Brave New World, published in 1932, but it was a sequel that did not revisit the story or the characters, or re-enter the world of the novel.

Taking a second look at specific aspects of the future Huxley imagined in Brave New World, Huxley meditated on how his fantasy seemed to be turning into reality, frighteningly and much more quickly than he had ever dreamed.
