When I was 18 years of age and starting college, I developed a crush on my female geography teacher. Little did I know that she felt the same and had set her target on getting to know me better and bedding me.<br />This story will be from both points of view. The story is true, but the point of view of the teacher is how I imagined this happening. Part 2 in the series of my life.

Memoirable follows my emergence from a socially anxious girl trapped in a male body, into a strong, self-assured, successful woman and social butterfly. This book is a journey composed of three intersecting adventures, each occurring in a different place and time. Outer Shell, an awkwardly dramatic tale of unlikely survival into adulthood. Inner Demons, a sordid, cautionary tale of denial, with a dash of romance. Synthesis, a gruelling tale of courage, sacrifice, and triumph over adversity.

American Women. Their Stories. Their Resistance.<br /><br />The despot is perched in his tower, threatening democracy with every tweet. Vultures of big business occupy his cabinet seats, while empty-headed puppets tie the Senate to a string. With a wave of a pen, they set our rights on fire.<br /><br />Welcome to the new America.<br /><br />And who are we? We are the women of the marginalized majority. We come from every corner of America. We are the outraged mothers. We are the unprotected daughters. We are the uninsured sick, the gay and the blamed, the cast-off patrons of the lesser paid, and the survivors of trauma taught to feel ashamed.<br /><br />We are every woman you have ever met, and every woman you haven’t. Our stories are of struggle, but also of strength; of fear, but also of courage. We know despair, but we never lose hope. We are extraordinary women living in extraordinary times.<br /><br />We are The Nasty Women Project.<br /><br />100% proceeds from our book sales are donated to Planned Parenthood.

<DIV>Dr. Loren A. Olson has frequently been asked two questions: How could you not know that you were gay until the age of forty? Wasn't your marriage just a sham to protect yourself at your wife's expense? In Finally Out, Dr. Olson answers these questions by telling the inspiring story of his evolving sexuality, into which he intelligently weaves psychological concepts and gay history. This book is a powerful exploration of human sexuality, particularly the sexuality of mature men who, like Dr. Olson, lived a large part of their lives as straight men—sometimes long after becoming aware of their same-sex attractions.<BR /><BR />Readers will come to understand:<BR /><BR />- That there is no universal model for coming out<BR />- Why many older LGBTQ men came out late, do not come out at all, or come out to varying degrees in different environments<BR />- How stigma has created mental health problems for isolated and closeted men who have sex with men, particularly in geographical areas and cultures where there is little or no acceptance of homosexuality<BR />- How sexual function changes but perhaps even improves for older men<BR />- That aging creates opportunities that one has never had and may never have again, e.g., freedom from the tyranny of ambition<BR />- That some people consistently prefer an older sexual partner and this can lead to stable, intergenerational relationships<BR />- How same-sex sexual activity was considered prior to the Stonewall uprising in 1969 contrasted with the way it is perceived after Stonewall<BR />- How age, culture, geographical location, heterosexual marriage, and children impact a person's decision to come out<BR />- Why "conversion therapy" does not work and may be harmful<BR />- The difference between homophobia and homona&iuml;vet&eacute;<BR />- The archetypes of self-identified straight men who seek occasional or regular sex with other men<BR />- How to overcome the shame and guilt experienced by men who are sexually attracted to other men</DIV>

1976, the hottest summer for a generation and life was perfect for the two young brothers Philip and Roger. They lived an idyllic life on a farm in the picturesque dales of the north of England. With their days spent on the farm, playing on Tarzan swings, building dens and swimming outside, their perfect existence was plunged into darkness when tragedy struck the family. Within a ten week period, the boys lost their parents and were left orphans.<br /><br />This is the story of Philip and his brother Roger, how their grandparents stepped in to bring them up and how a family and community came together to deal with the consequences that the devastation of death had left behind. Orphan Boys is not a misery memoir, it's a story full of love, strength and hope. This book is an uplifting tale of a family's survival and how they faced the huge challenges that life threw at them.

<strong></strong><strong>One of the most anticipated books of 2017: <i>Boston Globe, New York Times Book Review</i>, <i>New York</i>'s "Vulture", <i>The Week</i>, Bustle, BookRiot<br /><br /></strong><strong>David Sedaris tells all in a book that is, literally, a lifetime in the making<br /><br /></strong>It's no coincidence that the world's best writers tend to keep diaries. If you faithfully record your life in a journal, you're writing every day--and if you write every day, you become a better writer. David Sedaris has kept a diary for forty years. This means that if you've kept a diary for a year of your life or less, Sedaris is at least forty times better at writing than you are.<strong><br /><br /></strong>In his diaries, he's recorded everything that has captured his attention--overheard comments, salacious gossip, soap opera plot twists, secrets confided by total strangers. These observations are the source code for his finest work, and with them he has honed his self-deprecation and learned to craft his cunning, surprising sentences.<strong><br /><br /></strong>Now, for the first time, Sedaris shares his private writings with the world in <i>Theft By Finding: Diaries 1977-2002.</i> This is the first-person account of how a drug-abusing dropout with a weakness for the International House of Pancakes and a chronic inability to hold down a real job became one of the funniest people on the planet. <br /><br />Most diaries -- even the diaries of great writers -- are impossibly dull, because they generally write about their emotions, or their dreams, or their interior life. Sedaris's diaries are unique because they face outward. He doesn't tell us his feelings about the world, he shows us the world instead, and in so doing he shows us something deeper about himself.<br /><br />Written with a sharp eye and ear for the bizarre, the beautiful, and the uncomfortable, and with a generosity of spirit that even a misanthropic sense of humor can't fully disguise, <i>Theft By Finding </i>proves that Sedaris is one of our great modern observers. It's a potent reminder that there's no such thing as a boring day--when you're as perceptive and curious as Sedaris, adventure waits around every corner.<strong><br /><br /></strong>
