Pushups in the Prayer Room
by Norm Schriever
Rating: 4.9 Stars
Genre: Memoir
Price: $0.99


In the spring of 1999, Norm Schriever leaves his old life behind and backpacks around the world for a year, not returning to the US until the spring of 2000. Throughout his journeys he touches down in more than 20 countries in 6 continents, spanning 70,000 miles total, or the equivalent of almost three times around the equator.

There is never a dull moment on this wild and irreverent adventure, whether Norm is evading armed carjackers in a high-speed chase in the barrios of Venezuela, exploring ancient wonders of the world like the pyramids, the Great Wall, and Machu Picchu, almost landing in a Bolivian jail for mistakenly being accused of cocaine trafficking, or witnessing the holiest sites on earth in Jerusalem. Along the way, Norm encounters a broad spectrum of human existence and experiences a blossoming of consciousness and spiritual growth that he never anticipated. What started out as a wild, raucous party trip evolves into a man’s quest for his life’s purpose in the world.

Pushups in the Prayer Room: Reflections from a Year Backpacking around the World is an honest, no-holds-barred account of that year-long odyssey around the globe. Norm’s writing, which is enlightening, gritty, filled with self-deprecating humor, yet always authentic, picks you up and carries you along on that crazy journey.

The Bull Years
by Phil Stern
Rating: 4.4 Stars
Genre: Contemporary Fiction
Price: $0.00


For Steve, Sophia, Dave, and Brooke, life hasn’t turned out as planned. Rather than easy fame and fortune, these happy-go-lucky teenagers of the 1980’s found young adulthood a mystifying series of dead-end jobs, failed relationships, family scandal, and surging frustration. Now approaching middle age, all they want is to reverse their gradual alienation from life and one another, reconnecting with their earlier, innocent selves. But there’s a catch. Before any of them can move forward, they must collectively confront that one outrageous night back in college that first drove them apart, revealing secrets potentially shattering everything they ever were.


Some Kind of Genius: Murder in Mission Park
by Henry Simpson
Rating: 4.7 Stars
Genre: Mystery
Price: $0.00 Save $0.99
Subject to change back to full price at any time.


Police call lawyer Joe Costa to a public park when they find his business card on a brutally murdered homeless man. Costa identifies the victim as Max Gentry, a friend and musical genius who once led a famous rock band but faded into obscurity when overcome by drug abuse and mental illness. Police soon arrest two Latino youths for the murder. Their father, a former gang member, hires Costa to defend them despite Costa’s friendship with the victim. Costa reluctantly agrees, investigates, and accepts the boys’ innocence.

Possible murder suspects include former bandmates, past enemies, gang members, homeless persons, and strangers. Costa’s pursuit of the killer takes him to the exclusive Ranch District, a barrio, homeless hangouts, a military prep school, a private men’s club, an impromptu shooting gallery, a high school, and a psychic counselor. It is complicated by the unsolicited help of Costa’s tough-as-nails father, a homeless alcoholic, an ill-tempered dog, and the discovery of a personal link to the daughter of the victim’s lover.
