I'd like to read and review people's books. They must be non-fiction and interesting, though.

Hi Gaston. I would love for you to read and review my book which was posted only a week ago. I believe it meets your criteria. Take a look at the reviews for my book. Title is Shattered: Tragedy on the Mountain--living with traumatic brain injury and bipolar madness.

It is the true story of the aftermath of my late husband's horse packing accident in the mountains of Colorado. He was a nationally recognized bank president who after his accident went on a law breaking spree across four states while in an extended manic rampage. Everyone says it is a page turner. Love to know if you think so too. Thanks!

Hi Gaston...My book "The Hanauer Family Before, During and After the Holocaust" is an amazing account of how I learned about my family's survival during the Holocaust. It is now available on Kindle and will be available through books on demand soon. I would love to hear what you think about my book.

Mediocre - Making Fun of Life, by Julie McCulloch Burton

I am currently reading "Seductive Poison"-by Deborah Layton-A Jonestown survivor's lifestory including her close call with death at the hands of Jim Jones in the Guyana Jungle. She comes from a very well-bred German-Jewish family who came to the US, and has a very alluring way of drawing you into her very interesting and well-told story!
I am of East Indian heritage and was born in Guyana, so I was interested in the Jonestown mass suicide and her insider perspective. Just thought I'd pass this on for anyone else interested in this memoir.

Hi Gaston
Did you ever get round to reading my book which I told you about earlier? You can find it by searching for 'In Harmony Moragh Carter'. This is a fascinating story about an award-winning country music duo, relating their adventures on the road and, in deed, throughout their lives. They have gone from poverty to fame and fortune, and back again, with some remarkable experiences on the way. In Harmony: A biography of Jack Blanchard and Misty Morgan

My Heritage- Memories of Growing up in Guyana, South America

I didnt intend to publish it, but Create Spacce's low cost encouraged me to try it. I have never published anything before, so I will take any constructive criticism. There is a Kindle Version.

You might try: "ROGER TOUHY THE STOLEN YEARS" which is available on Amazon in both book and Kindle versions. It's a true story and a page turner, easily read and exciting. This is the autobiography of Roger Touhy who was a well-known bootlegger during Prohibition in the Chicago suburbs. He started out as a legitimate businessman but, after he became involved in selling beer, his life changed dramatically. His enemies were Al Capone (who wanted Touhy's territory), a corrupt Chicago police captain and an equally corrupt states attorney, all of whom conspired with a con man who was wanted in England and was trying to avoid extradiction by the U.S. Government to get Touhy out of the way. They trumped up a hoax and railroaded Touhy into prison and a sentence of 199 years! The efforts of those who loved Roger Touhy to free him finally paid off 25 years later when an honest Federal judge completely exonerated Touhy and declared that not only had he never committed the crime but that the crime was a hoax that, therefore, never happened in the first place. It was even pointed out that Touhy never had an arrest record or was involved in vice and drugs (as were Capone, etc.) prior to his false imprisonment. Roger Touhy was freed but the Chicago mob brutally murdered him only 28 days later in an ambush by shotgun. This is a newly released update of the book which was originally published upon Touhy's release from prison. But, the Chicago mob and others in high places prevented the book from being distributed throughout the country by intimidation of book sellers and by utilizing their control over the Teamsters drivers who were told to refuse to ship the books. Most copies of the book were destroyed by thugs and, therefore, it never was available to the general public in any great number. Roger Touhy's niece has re-issured her uncle's book and has written a new Foreward, Introduction and Epilogue which outlines the murder by the Chicago mob and others.

I think you'll find this story very compelling.

Dear Gaston:
I've recently published a book in both ebook and paperback entitled, "So Close to Dying", a memoir of growing up in the 50's and sixties, culminating in my experiences in the Marine Corps and Viet Nam as a helicopter pilot. I've attempted to capture the universal angst of growing up, the turbulence and divisiveness of the late sixties in America, and my moral dilemma in choosing a path that would change my life forever.
Thanks for developing this discussion. Ed

If you have a strong stomach then this is excellent written Twenty-Two Faces and also a very unusual book. An excellent biography of a woman growing up unaware that she has multiple personalities, after a job interview in a psychiatric hospital she is admitted as a patient... a very courageous woman who does not want to be seen as a victim.

Alwin - I'd love to read that - Guyana really interests me
It's one of those books you re-read often.

You might find my book ROOM AT THE FOOT OF THE BED of interest as a non-fiction story of my family. It is heartwarming, sad, sometimes, funny, but all in all, a true story about an Appalachain family. Please read the sample.

I am new to blogging. Also a new writer. Writing a new memoir. Any critique would be taken as constructive-for growth.

Hi Gaston,
I would love you to review the book I had published three months ago. It is the story of the award-winning country music singers who I met after hearing a song of theirs on internet radio. That was the start of a close transatlantic friendship, which in turn led to me writing their biography after I got tired of trying to persuade Jack to write their autobiography. Their story is too fascinating not to be preserved in print.
You can find more about it at In Harmony

Dunwoody Journal: Reflections on Alzheimer's, Mid-Life Obscurity and Everyday Madness. An unusual book dealing with a growing problem: Alzheimer's. But unlike others on the subject the author uses humor to preserve his own sanity while watching his mother's slip away.

This review is from: The Arrogance of Evil (Kindle Edition)
The ones with no wisdom and full of pride, envy, gluttony, lust, anger, sloth, and greed are the ones that possess this evil covetousness and vanity with a craving desire to consume more than they can acquire at the expense of the people, investors, poor, and needy. These are some of our leaders, bankers, CEOs and Wall Street leaders. They are a bunch of little thieves and cowards who are immoral, good for nothing, and self-gratifying, and who illustrate disgusting behaviors and wicked human passions.DOMESTIC FINANCIAL TERRORISTS. They are fixated on themselves and they operate with avarice, sadness, anger, and vanity. They are sloths. This is a very serious problem. A lot of people don't understand the seriousness of their sins towards the poor, the needy, the middle class, and the people that they hurt intentionally because of their selfishness and through their corruption. The devil's mind is locked and cannot escape corruption or greed until he exhausts every mean of distortion via the wicked to claim his victims. The wicked in power follow with misguided decisions and false evidence of his intelligence to falsely prove that his judgment is right every time. The ingredients of this false cocktail distort morality and deliver completely unsafe solutions.
I believe 100% in capitalism, but not in capitalism through corruption and greed
