The Chair: A Novel

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-chair-a-novel...
If someone gave you a chair and said it was made by Jesus Christ, would you believe them? When an elderly lady shows up in Corin Roscoe's antiques store and gives him a chair she claims was crafted by Jesus, he scoffs. But when a young boy is miraculously healed two days after sitting in the chair, he stops laughing and starts wondering. could this chair heal the person whose life Corin destroyed twelve years ago? As word spreads of the boy's healing, a mega-church pastor is determined to manipulate Corin into turning over the chair. And that mysterious woman who gave him the piece flits in and out of his life like a shadow, insinuating it's Corin's destiny to guard the chair above everything else. But why? Desperate, he turns to the one person he can trust, a college history professor who knows more about the legend of the chair than he'll reveal. Corin's life shatters as he searches for the truth about the artifact and the unexplained phenomena surrounding it. What's more, he's not the only one willing do almost anything to possess the power seemingly connected to the chair. Acclaim for The Chair:"James Rubart is one of my new favorite authors.

Computer Organization and Assembly Language Programming

https://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/computer-organizatio...
Computer Organization and Assembly Language Programming deals with lower level computer programming-machine or assembly language, and how these are used in the typical computer system. The book explains the operations of the computer at the machine language level. The text reviews basic computer operations, organization, and deals primarily with the MIX computer system. The book describes assembly language programming techniques, such as defining appropriate data structures, determining the information for input or output, and the flow of control within the program. The text explains basic I/O programming concepts, technique of interrupts, and an overlapped I/O. The text also describes the use of subroutines to reduce the number of codes that are repetitively written for the program. An assembler can translate a program from assembly language into a loader code for loading into the computer's memory for execution. A loader can be of several types such as absolute, relocatable, or a variation of the other two types. A linkage editor links various small segments into one large segment with an output format similar to an input format for easier program handling. The book also describes the use of other programming languages which can offer to the programmer the power of an assembly language by his using the syntax of a higher-level language. The book is intended as a textbook for a second course in computer programming, following the recommendations of the ACM Curriculum 68 for Course B2 "Computers and Programming.

Speaking Freely

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/speaking-freely-1...
What do Dr. Seuss, William Faulkner, Toni Morrison, Andrei Sakharov, and James Michener have in common? They were all published by Bob Bernstein during his twenty-five-year run as president of Random House, before he brought the dissidents Liu Binyan, Jacobo Timerman, Natan Sharansky, and Václav Havel to worldwide attention in his role as the father of modern human rights. Starting as an office boy at Simon & Schuster in 1946, Bernstein moved to Random House in 1956 and succeeded Bennett Cerf as president ten years later. The rest is publishing and human rights history. In a charming and self-effacing work, Bernstein reflects for the first time on his fairy tale publishing career, hobnobbing with Truman Capote and E.L. Doctorow; conspiring with Kay Thompson on the Eloise series; attending a rally for Random House author George McGovern with film star Claudette Colbert; and working with publishing luminaries including Dick Simon, Alfred Knopf, Robert Gottlieb, André Schiffrin, Peter Osnos, Susan Peterson, and Jason Epstein as Bernstein grew Random House from a $40 million to an $800 million plus money making juggernaut," as Thomas Maier called it in his biography of Random House owner Si Newhouse. In a book sure to be savored by anyone who has worked in the publishing industry, fought for human rights, or wondered how Theodor Geisel became Dr. Seuss, Speaking Freely beautifully captures a bygone era in the book industry and the first crucial years of a worldwide movement to protect free speech and challenge tyranny around the globe.

MURDER IS A MATTER OF COLOR

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/murder-is-a-matter-of-color...
Murder is a Matter of Color is a racially charged murder mystery, a detective story set in an unnamed city somewhere in the United States. The story contains violence, death, fear, the drug trade, sex, honor, and retribution. The plot centers on a black police officer, Detective Roy Hines, and his struggle to obtain acceptance and inner peace in a bigoted community, while attempting to overcome numerous obstacles thrown in his path. Drugs are distributed from a restaurant, one of the finer dining establishments in the city. The owner, Paul Palmer, is forced under the threat of blackmail and endangerment to his family, to cooperate with the drug dealers. The local drug lord, Neal Peterson, posing as a respectable businessman is blackmailing the owner, Palmer, into cooperating with the drug dealers by threatening harm to his family. Money collected from the sale of the drugs is spent on the organization of a paramilitary Force: "C.L.A.W," or "Civil Liberties Are for Whites." This group is bent on keeping African Americans hooked on drugs and, therefore, forever downtrodden and "beneath" the white race. Aided by cohorts Ralph Manchetti and Colonel Bubba Dorcey. Peterson is determined to wreck havoc by instigating racial unrest while still collecting sufficient drug money to appease his suppliers. Peterson, through "C.L.A.W," stages a mass demonstration which evolves into a full-blown riot and confrontation between the paramilitary force and the local police. A crime that goes horrendously wrong and ends in brutal murder brings Detective Roy Hines and his Sergeant, James Woodson, into the picture. Loose ends are slowly pieced together, with Woodson ultimately killed in a car wreck, discovered to have been caused by a deliberate tampering of the brakes. Neal Peterson is savagely murdered. It can be any number of people in the novel. The reader discovers who the murderer is in the final paragraphs of the book.
