Book Description: *"Everyone should read this remarkable, affecting novel."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review Tender and wise, The Ship We Built is about the bravery it takes to stand up for yourself--even to those you love--and the power of finding someone who treasures you for everything you are. Sometimes I have trouble filling out tests when the name part feels like a test too. . . . When I write letters, I love that you have to read all of my thoughts and stories before I say any name at all. You have to make it to the very end to know. Rowan has too many secrets to write down in the pages of a diary. And if he did, he wouldn't want anyone he knows to read them. He understands who he is and what he likes, but it's not safe for others to find out. Now the kids at school say Rowan's too different to spend time with. He's not the "right kind" of girl, and he's not the "right kind" of boy. His mom ignores him. And at night, his dad hurts him in ways he's not ready to talk about yet. But Rowan discovers another way to share his secrets: letters. Letters he attaches to balloons and releases into the universe, hoping someone new will read them and understand. But when he befriends a classmate who knows what it's like to be lonely and scared, even at home, Rowan realizes that there might already be a person he can trust right by his side.

Book Description: اسْمِي رُوبِنْسُونْ كرُوزُو. وُلِدْتُ عَامَ ١٦٣٢ بِبَلْدَةِ يُورْكَ، وَكُنْتُ الِابْنَ الْأصَغَرَ مِنْ بَيْنِ أَبْنَاءٍ ثَلَاثَةٍ، وَكَانَ أَخِي الْأكَبَرُ جُنْدِيٍّا لَكِنَّهُ لَقِيَ حَتْفَهُ فِي مَعَرَكَةٍ ضِدَّ إِسْبَانْيَا، فِيمَا اخْتَفَى أَخِي الثَّانِي مِنْ حَيَاتِنَا حِينَمَا رَحَلَ يَوْمًا مَا وَلَمْ يَعُدْ قَطُّ. وَبِذَلِك فَقَدَ أَبَوَايَ اثْنَيْنِ مِنْ أَبْنَائِهِمَا وَلَمْ يَرْغَبَا فِي أَنْ يَفْقِدَا الثَّالِثَ؛ لِذَا أَرَادَ أَبِي أَنْ أَظَلَّ فِي الْوَطَنِ وَأَنْ أصُبِحَ مُحَامِيًا، لَكِنَّنِي كُنْتُ أَعْشَقُ الْمُغَامَرَاتِ الرَّائِعَةَ وَالْبِلَادَ الْبَعِيدَةَ؛ فَقَدْ أَرَدْتُ أَنْ أَكُونَ بَحَّارًا!

Book Description: In David Weber's How Firm a Foundation, the fifth book in the Safehold series, the Charisian Empire, born in war, has always known it must fight for its very survival. What most of its subjects don't know even now, however, is how much more it's fighting for. Emperor Cayleb, Empress Sharleyan, Merlin Athrawes, and their innermost circle of most trusted advisers do know. And because they do, they know the penalty if they lose will be far worse than their own deaths and the destruction of all they know and love. For five years, Charis has survived all the Church of God Awaiting and the corrupt men who control it have thrown at the island empire. The price has been high and paid in blood. Despite its chain of hard-fought naval victories, Charis is still on the defensive. It can hold its own at sea, but if it is to survive, it must defeat the Church upon its own ground. Yet how does it invade the mainland and take the war to a foe whose population outnumbers its own fifteen to one? How does it prevent that massive opponent from rebuilding its fleets and attacking yet again? Charis has no answer to those questions, but needs to find one...quickly. The Inquisition's brutal torture and hideous executions are claiming more and more innocent lives. Its agents are fomenting rebellion against the only mainland realms sympathetic to Charis. Religious terrorists have been dispatched to wreak havoc against the Empire's subjects. Assassins stalk the Emperor and Empress, their allies and advisers, and an innocent young boy, not yet eleven years old, whose father has already been murdered. And Merlin Athrawes, the cybernetic avatar of a young woman a thousand years dead, has finally learned what sleeps beneath the far-off Temple in the Church of God Awaiting's city of Zion. The men and women fighting for human freedom and tolerance have built a foundation for their struggle in the Empire of Charis with their own blood, but will that foundation be firm enough to survive?

Book Description: «أيها العالَم، كلُّ شيءٍ يُلائمُني إذا لاءَمَك، وكلُّ ما هو في أوانِه بالنِّسبةِ إليكَ فهوَ كذلكَ عِندي، لا مُتقدِّمٌ لديَّ ولا مُتأخِّر. أيتُها الطبيعة، كلُّ ما تَجلِبُه مَواسِمُكِ فهو ثَمرةٌ لي؛ كلُّ شيءٍ منكِ يَأتي، وفيكِ يعيش، وإليكِ يَعود.» حينَما يُناجِي المرءُ نفسَه، فإنه يَكتبُ إليها ما لا يُعلِنُه لسِواها، ليكشِفَ الحقيقة، فيَكونَ الصدقُ عُنوانَه. في تأمُّلاتِه التي كتَبَها بعُنوانِ «إلى نفسِه» يُمثِّلُ الإمبراطورُ «ماركوس أوريليوس» رؤيةَ الفيلسوفِ حينما يكونُ إمبراطورًا؛ فبينَما كانتْ جبهةُ الدانوبِ تَضِجُّ بالحرب، عكَفَ الإمبراطورُ على تدوينِ مجموعةٍ مِنَ التأمُّلاتِ عبَّرَ فيها عمَّا يَجولُ بخاطرِه حولَ عدةِ موضوعاتٍ حياتيةٍ مُتفرِّقة، وعلى الرغمِ من أنَّه لم يُرِدْ لها أن تَخرجَ للناس، فإنها صارتْ قِبلةَ الفلاسفةِ ومَقصِدَ المُفكرِينَ والقُرَّاءِ بعدَ طباعتِها ونشرِها، ليكونَ كتابُه واحدًا مِن أهمِّ كتبِ الفلسفةِ الرُّواقية، ليس فقطْ لأنه انتقلَ بالفلسفةِ مِنَ التنظيرِ إلى التطبيق، ولكنْ لأنَّ الفيلسوفَ المؤلِّفَ حقَّقَ رؤيةَ «أفلاطونَ» في أن يكونَ الحاكمُ فيلسوفًا.
