Science …For Her! by Megan Amram
Requirements: ePUB reader, 4.4 MB
Overview: Megan Amram, one of Forbes’ “30 Under 30 in Hollywood & Entertainment,” Rolling Stone’s “25 Funniest People on Twitter,” and a writer for NBC’s hit show Parks and Recreation, delivers a politically, scientifically, and anatomically incorrect “textbook” that will have women screaming with laughter, and men dying to know what the noise is about.
In the vein of faux expert books by John Hodgman and Amy Sedaris, Science.for Her! is ostensibly a book of science written by a denizen of women’s magazines. Comedy writer and Twitter sensation Megan Amram showcases her fiendish wit with a pitch-perfect attack on everything from those insanely perky tips for self-improvement to our bizarre shopaholic dating culture to the socially mandated pursuit of mind-blowing sex to the cringe-worthy secret codes of food and body issues

Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey (Hot and Hammered #1), Charlotte North (Narrator)
Requirements: M4B Player, 544mb, 9 hrs and 59 mins
Overview: A brand-new romantic comedy from New York Times best seller Tessa Bailey!
Georgette Castle’s family runs the best home renovation business in town, but she picked balloons instead of blueprints, and they haven’t taken her seriously since. Frankly, she’s over it. Georgie loves planning children’s birthday parties and making people laugh, just not at her own expense. She’s determined to fix herself up into a woman of the world…whatever that means.
Phase one: new framework for her business (a website from this decade, perhaps?)
Phase two: a gut-reno on her wardrobe (FYI, leggings are pants.)
Phase three: updates to her exterior (do people still wax?)
Phase four: put herself on the market (and stop crushing on Travis Ford!)
Living her best life means facing the truth: Georgie hasn’t been on a date since, well, ever. Nobody’s asking the town clown out for a night of hot sex, that’s for sure. Maybe if people think she’s having a steamy love affair, they’ll acknowledge she’s not just the “little sister” who paints faces for a living. And who better to help demolish that image than the resident sports star and tabloid favorite?
Travis Ford was Major League Baseball’s hottest rookie when an injury ended his career. Now, he’s flipping houses to keep busy and trying to forget his glory days. But he can’t even cross the street without someone recapping his greatest hits. Or making a joke about his…bat. And then there’s Georgie, his best friend’s sister, who is not a kid anymore. When she proposes a wild scheme – that they pretend to date, to shock her family and help him land a new job – he agrees. What’s the harm? It’s not like it’s real.
But the girl Travis used to tease is now a funny, full-of-life woman, and there’s nothing fake about how much he wants her….

Servilia and Her Family by Susan Treggiari
Requirements: .PDF reader, 2.3 MB
Overview: Servilia is often cited as one of the most influential women of the late Roman Republic. Though she was a high-born patrician, her grandfather died disgraced and her controversial father was killed before he could stand for the consulship. She married twice, but both husbands, Marcus Iunius Brutus and Decimus Iunius Silanus, were mediocre. Her position in society and (it may be conjectured) her contacts, personality, ability, and charm gave her influence. It is likely that she masterminded the distinguished marriages of her one son, Brutus, and her three daughters. During her second marriage she entered on an affair with C. Iulius Caesar, which probably lasted for the rest of his life, a fact which also suggests her charm and her exceptional intelligence. The patchiness of the sources means that a full biography is impossible, though in suggesting connexions between the evidence and the possibilities open to women of similar status this volume aims to reconstruct her life and position as a member of the senatorial nobility and within her extended and nuclear family. The best attested period of Servilia’s life, for which the chief source is Cicero’s letters, follows the murder of Caesar by her son and her son-in-law, Cassius, who were leaders among the crowd of conspirators in the Senate-house on the Ides of March 44 BC. We find her working to protect the assassins’ interests and defending her grandchildren (by the Caesarian Lepidus) when he was a public enemy and his property threatened with confiscation.
