Books That Deserve To Be Read
There are more than half a million books published each year in the US alone. Not all of them make the best seller lists. We are on a quest to find the books that deserve to be in the best seller list.
Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.
Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.

“Dear Edward made me think, nod in recognition, care about its characters, and cry, and you can’t ask more of a novel than that.”—Emma Donoghue, New York Times bestselling author of Room
“Weaving past and present into a profoundly beautiful,
Bharatpur’s Keoldeo National Park, a World Heritage site , is basically a bird’s paradise with several species of birds, resident and migratory, in different colours and sizes but every single plant and animal found here deserves full credit for adding to its grandeur.
This book, authored by me has been recently published by the country’s renowned publisher, Niyogi Books, Delhi. It is adorned with several mesmerizing pictures of various wild creatures and nature.
Apart from the author most of the pics have been taken by Navin Sharma, a prize winning nature photojournalist, Abrar Khan alias Bholu, Nayan Khanolkar—all big names in the field of ornithology and Ansar-Chhote Khan duo,great birders.
This book, right from the Overview itself, is an interesting read. The comprehensive details given in the book about the complex ecology of the wetland provide deep knowledge of the ecosystem of the park. Each chapter of this book is informative describing the beauty of park and its inmates in
detail and gives a new perspective to the problems of the park.
Thus the book was born, rightly split in three parts i.e. Past Glory(Nature’s Playground), Debacle and Remaking. Buffalo grazing, which was stopped in Keoladeo after it became a national park,has been a point of controversy since then among ecologists, wildlifers and the park management.
The book will inspire you to visit this park or , perhaps, plan yet another visit.
Billy Winston’s family is going to see him happy and in love if it’s the last thing they do.
No one deserves a happily-ever-after quite as much as the second oldest Winston brother and his lady love, Claire McClure (aka Scarlet St. Claire). Cruelty and circumstance tore them apart almost twenty years ago. Secrecy and bitterness kept them separated.
But you know who’s tired of their separation and stubbornness? Everyone. Especially Billy Winston’s family. And now they’re going to do something about it.
Well-meaning interference means the star-crossed lovers can’t stop tripping over each other in the hills of Tuscany, the catacombs of Rome, and the waterways of Venice. Billy and Claire find themselves thrown together and at the mercy of the Winston siblings’ shenanigans.
But will their forced proximity bring them together? Or push them even further apart?
This second-chance romance brings back the entire Winston gang, playing cupid in one last story of love, hi-jinks, and family collusion.
BEARD NECESSITIES is a full-length contemporary romantic comedy, and can be read as a stand-alone, but it’s probably best read after books 0.5, 2, 3, 5, and 6 of the Winston Brothers series.

When she doesn’t arrive on her scheduled train, he’s positive something is wrong.
