From the award-winning novelist and writer of Upstairs, Downstairs, the launch of a brilliant new trilogy about what life was really like for masters and servants before the world of Downton Abbey. As the Season of 1899 comes to an end, the world is poised on the brink of profound, irrevocable change. The Earl of Dilberne is facing serious financial concerns. The ripple effects spread to everyone in the household: Lord Robert, who has gambled unwisely on the stock market and seeks a place in the Cabinet; his unmarried children, Arthur, who keeps a courtesan, and Rosina, who keeps a parrot in her bedroom; Lord Robert’s wife, Isobel, who orders the affairs of the household in Belgrave Square; and Grace, the lady’s maid who orders the life of her mistress. Lord Robert can see no financial relief to an already mortgaged estate, and, though the Season is over, his thoughts turn to securing a suitable wife (and dowry) for his son. The arrival on the London scene of Minnie, a beautiful Chicago heiress with a reputation to mend, seems the answer to all their prayers. As the writer of the pilot episode of the original Upstairs, Downstairs - Fay Weldon brings a deserved reputation for magnificent storytelling. With wit and sympathy - and no small measure of mischief - Habits of the House plots the interplay of restraint and desire, manners and morals, reason and instinct. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katherine Kellgren. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/aren/001533/bk_aren_001533_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

'A word to those of you out there who have yet to be offended by something I have written or said: Please be patient. I am working as fast as I can.' -Ann Coulter, 2006 Is she ever! Ever since the publication of her Clinton-bashing debut, High Crimes and Misdemeanors, right-wing fire-brand Ann Coulter has made herself one of the most talked-about figures in contemporary American life—and has done so by issuing a near-continuous barrage of insult and invective, which has been described as 'shameless,' 'cruel,' 'shrill, bombastic, and mean-spirited,' 'grossly inappropriate,' 'hate speech.' She has called the 9/11 widows 'witches' and 'harpies,' referred to Muslims as 'ragheads,' called Al Gore a 'total fag,' and said that both New York Times editor Bill Keller and antiwar congressman Jack Murtha deserved to die. Yet with each new statement—and each new book launch—Coulter somehow manages to co-opt the media as a megaphone for her attacks, while emerging from the backlash miraculously unscathed. Until now. With Soulless, political commentator Susan Estrich takes on Ann and the 'Coulter culture' she has created, exposing how the pundit provocatrice has downgraded our political discourse with her irresponsible rhetoric, personal attacks, and slanderous asides. Trawling through Coulter's history of often-violent public statements, Estrich asks which are more cynical: the pundit and her headline-grabbing drive-by character assassinations, or the networks who happily bring her back for more. Soulless also casts a light on 'the Anns,' wannabes like Michelle Malkin and Glenn Beck, whose imitation Coulterisms coarsen our culture with every passing news cycle. And, most important, she challenges us—the readers, the voters—to remember that behind the huckster's rhetoric lurks a dangerous reactionary whose real agenda is wildly out of step with the American public. As Estrich says, 'She knows exactly what she is doing. And she is scary as hell because of it.'

​Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race by Margot Lee Shetterly Book Summary Readtrepreneur (Disclaimer: This is NOT the original book, but an unofficial summary.) The story about the dedicated female mathematicians is definitely a doozy that will make you read their entire story non-stop. Hidden Figures introduces us to the marvelous story about the brilliant female mathematicians that did the complex calculations behind the launch of rockets and astronauts into space. They were some of the most brilliant minds of their generations which didn't get the recognition they deserved at that time but now we can read about the whole story. (Note: This summary is wholly written and published by Readtrepreneur It is not affiliated with the original author in any way) 'Women, on the other hand, had to wield their intellects like a scythe, hacking away against the stubborn underbrush of low expectations.' - Margot Lee Shetterly Before Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, behind the curtains, there were a group of brilliant female mathematicians known as 'human computers' due to their mental prowess. Margot Lee Shetterly will educate us on the racial and genre discrimination that these women had to endure to be part of historical accomplishments.
