When college graduate, Farrah Ford, takes a summer job at Do Donuts, she is pretty sure she has encountered the love of her life. The problem is she isn’t sure who he is.

Is he Cade, the sophisticated hot doctor in his 40’s who is a regular at Do Donuts and comes in daily to flirt with Farrah?
She doesn’t recall meeting him, yet “Frosted Stripes” confident demeanor is dominating.

Or is he Justin, the 26 year old, sensual stud fresh from the Navy, who enters the bakery pre-dawn, ties on an apron, rolls up his sleeves, and turns on more than the fryers! The way “Celebration Sprinkles” dunks his donuts in milk, then eats them, gives Do Donuts a delicious meaning.

So what’s Farrah’s donut dilemma? She has no idea which dude she is secretly texting!
Is it Frosted Stripes or Celebration Sprinkles?

Helmet for My Pillow: From Parris Island to the Pacific

Robert Leckie was 21 when he enlisted in the US Marine Corps in January 1942.
In Helmet for My Pillow we follow his journey, from boot camp on Parris Island, South Carolina, all the way to the raging battles in the Pacific, where some of the war’s fiercest fighting took place. Recounting his service with the 1st Marine Division and the brutal action on Guadalcanal, New Britain and Peleliu, Leckie spares no detail of the horrors and sacrifice of war, painting an unsentimental portrait of how real warriors are made, fight, and all too often die in the defence of their country.
Unparalleled in its immediacy and accuracy, Helmet for My Pillow is a gripping account from an ordinary soldier fighting in extraordinary conditions.

Powers of Two: How Relationships Drive Creativity

Throughout history, partners have buoyed each other to better work—though often one member is little known to the general public. (See Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger, or Vincent and Theo van Gogh.) Powers of Two draws on neuroscience, social psychology, and cultural history to present the social foundations of creativity, with the pair as its primary embodiment.

Revealing the six essential stages through which creative intimacy unfolds, this book shows how pairs begin to talk, think, and even look like each other; how the most successful ones thrive on conflict; and why some cease to work together while others carry on. At once intuitive and deeply surprising, Powers of Two will reshape the way you view individuals, relationships, and society itself.
