The Vikings in Western Christendom by C. F. Keary
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 510 KB
Overview: The Vikings were no longer the exiled younger brothers of the Danish race. It was on them now, and not on the Danes of the Fatherland, that the thoughts of men dwelt.’ Written by the scholar C.F. Keary, this is a comprehensive look at the life of the Vikings in the ninth century, in the context of Western Europe as Christianity’s influence diminished.

Keary starts with the European domination of the Roman Empire, distinguishing Christians from so-called ‘heathens’ who worshipped their own gods. Many of these had been formerly converted from heathens into Christians, as happened in Ireland and England.

The ‘heathen’ Vikings were from Denmark, Sweden and Norway, and expanded their lands and ways of living to these Christian areas through violent battle.

Infighting in Ireland led to the easy conquest of their land by the Vikings. Soon they entered Paris, burning houses and slaying residents, meeting the efforts of the French King, Charles the Bald. So influential was the Viking method of fortified camps that the French used it to try and hold them back. All army manoeuvres are described in great detail, taking the reader back 1200 years.

When the Vikings tried to invade Germany, the leader Charles the Fat called for an amalgam of armies at the diet of Worms, but he could not resist the onslaught either.

Unbelievable: My Front-Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History by Katy Tur
Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 1.3 MB
Overview: Called “disgraceful,” “third-rate,” and “not nice” by Donald Trump, NBC News correspondent Katy Tur reported on—and took flak from—the most captivating and volatile presidential candidate in American history.

Katy Tur lived out of a suitcase for a year and a half, following Trump around the country, powered by packets of peanut butter and kept clean with dry shampoo. She visited forty states with the candidate, made more than 3,800 live television reports, and tried to endure a gazillion loops of Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer”—a Trump rally playlist staple.

From day 1 to day 500, Tur documented Trump’s inconsistencies, fact-checked his falsities, and called him out on his lies. In return, Trump repeatedly singled Tur out. He tried to charm her, intimidate her, and shame her. At one point, he got a crowd so riled up against Tur, Secret Service agents had to walk her to her car.

None of it worked. Facts are stubborn. So was Tur. She was part of the first women-led politics team in the history of network news. The Boys on the Bus became the Girls on the Plane. But the circus remained. Through all the long nights, wild scoops, naked chauvinism, dodgy staffers, and fevered debates, no one had a better view than Tur.

Unbelievable is her darkly comic, fascinatingly bizarre, and often scary story of how America sent a former reality show host to the White House. It’s also the story of what it was like for Tur to be there as it happened, inside a no-rules world where reporters were spat on, demeaned, and discredited. Tur was a foreign correspondent who came home to her most foreign story of all. Unbelievable is a must-read for anyone who still wakes up and wonders, Is this real life?
