Title: 
Kabul Beauty School

Deborah Rodriguez went to Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban in 2001. She founded the Kabul Beauty School in Afghanistan and welcomed the first class in 2003. Well meaning but sometimes brazen, she stumbled through language barriers, overstepped cultural customs, and constantly juggled the challenges of a postwar nation even as she learned how to empower her students. The tale of an extraordinary community of women who come together and learn the arts of perms, friendship, and freedom. Read more about Tillman Hill Adult - Kabul Beauty School

Title: 
Marley & Me

John and Jenny were just beginning their life together. Then they brought home Marley, a wiggly yellow furball of a puppy. Life would never be the same. Marley grew into a barreling, ninety-seven-pound streamroller of a Labrador retriever. He crashed through screen doors, gouged through drywall, and stole women's undergarments. Obedience school did no good - Marley was expelled. But just as Marley joyfully refused any limits on his behavior, his love and loyalty were boundless, too.

So when the Chicago P.D. has a case that transcends mortal creativity or capability, they come to him for answers.

Title: 
Flight of Passage

Tom Buck was a barnstormer who taught his two sons how to fly before they could drive. In 1966, those teenage sons restored a Piper Cub and flew it (without a radio) across America. This memoir, written by the younger brother, recalls the people they met in this pre-Vietnam America, and the relationship the sons had with their father that led to such an extraordinary journey.

Title: 
The Tin Roof Blowdown

Hurricane Katrina has left New Orleans awash with looters and predators of every stripe. The power grid of the city has been destroyed, and New Orleans has been reduced to the level of a medieval society. There is no law, no order, no sanctuary. Bodies float in the streets and lie impaled on the branches of flooded trees. In the midst of an apocalyptical nightmare, Detective Dave Robicheaux must find two serial rapists, a morphine-addicted priest, and a vigilante who may be more dangerous than the criminals looting the city.
