Books on Sale: Naughton, Mancusi, Brown, and Gandhi

Book Marked - Elisabeth Naughton

Marked is book 1 in Elisabeth Naughton's Eternal Guardians series. It's on sale for .99c digitally.

THERON – Dark haired, duty bound and deceptively deadly.

He's the leader of the Argonauts, an elite group of guardians that defends the immortal realm from threats of the Underworld. From the moment he walked into the club, Casey knew this guy was different. Men like that just didn't exist in real life–silky shoulder-length hair, chest impossibly broad, and a predatory manner that just screamed dark and dangerous. He was looking for something.

Her.

She was the one. She had the mark. Casey had to die so his kind could live, and it was Theron's duty to bring her in. But even as a 200-year-old descendent of Hercules, he wasn't strong enough to resist the pull in her fathomless eyes, to tear himself away from the heat of her body. As war with the Underworld nears, someone will have to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Book An Autobiography: The Story of My Experiments With Truth - Gandhi

This is Gandhi's autobiography, first published in 1929. I'm fascinated by the mixed reviews, and how different people's opinions of his book are. Some find it inspiring, and some find it frustrating and overly pedantic. It's on sale digitally for 99c.

This is Gandhi's autobiography covering his life from early childhood to approximately 1921.

In Gandhi's own words: “I simply want to tell the story of my numerous experiments with truth, and as my life consists of nothing but those experiments, it is true that the story will take the shape of an autobiography. But I shall not mind, if every page of it speaks only of my experiments . . . I should certainly like to narrate my experiments in the spiritual field which are known only to myself, and from which I have derived such power as I posses for working in the political field . . . If I had only to discuss academic principles. I should clearly not attempt an autobiography. But my purpose being to give an account of various practical applications of these principles, I have given the chapters I propose to write the title of The Story of My Experiments with Truth. These will of course include experiments with non-violence, celibacy and other principles of conduct believed to be distinct from truth.

Book The DaVinci Code The DaVinci Code is free digitally on most platforms. I remember when I read it, I was completely absorbed into the puzzle of it, and went on to read all of Brown's other books in one big glom. I do not recommend you do the same.

Robert Langdon is a Harvard professor of symbology who can't stay out of trouble. Last seen in Angels and Demons (2000), this mild-mannered academic finds himself entangled in a deadly conspiracy that stretches back centuries.

Visiting Paris on business, he is awakened at 2:00 a.m. by a call from the police: An elderly curator has been murdered inside the Louvre, and a baffling cipher has been found near the body. Aided by the victim's cryptologist granddaughter, Langdon begins a danger-filled quest for the culprit; but the deeper he searches, the more he becomes convinced that long-festering conspiracies hold the answer to the art lover's death.

Book Devil's Kiss - Zoe Archer One more! Zoe Archer's Devil's Kiss, book one of her Hellraisers series, is free today (March 19 2013) only.

1762. James Sherbourne, Earl of Whitney, is a gambling man. Not for the money. But for the thrill, the danger–and the company: Whit has become one of the infamous Hellraisers, losing himself in the chase for adventure and pleasure with his four closest friends. Which was how Whit found himself in a gypsy encampment, betting against a lovely Romani girl.

Zora Grey's smoky voice and sharp tongue entrance Whit nearly as much as her clever hands–watching them handle cards inspires thoughts of another kind…

Zora can't explain her attraction to the careless blue-eyed Whit. She also can't stop him and his Hellraisers from a fiendish curse: the power to grant their own hearts' desires, to chase their pleasures from the merely debauched to the truly diabolical. And if Zora can't save Whit, she still has to escape him. . .

    I just read Gandhi’s autobiography (I started because he trained to be a lawyer in London in the late Victorian era and I wanted to see his account of things, and ha ha, if you think law school is useless NOW, check out what he has to say, and then kept reading past that because it was interesting) and for me, the fascinating thing was that he didn’t engage in the sort of ego-stroking that you so often see in memoir.

    He says things like, “I did this, and wow, that was a mistake, I totally messed up, and then I did this, and it turned out well, but I didn’t have this big master plan or anything.”

    I can see how that would be frustrating to someone who is used to someone telling a story about themselves that makes everything out to be an intentional act, intentionally committed, but to me it felt more like a story that was being told without regard for what you would think of him for saying what he did. As if my opinion of the teller was irrelevant to him, and he doesn’t care if I think worse of him for telling what he perceives to be the truth. Reading his autobiography made me aware of how much other autobiographies care about what you, the reader, think.

    I don’t know if others would agree, but that was my takeaway.

    Thanks for listing Karma Kitty which, incidentally, was a story originally inspired by the whole costume/thigh high RWA kerfunkle back in 2007. :) Good times!
