 Tefnut by Javaris Squire (Book)
 Tefnut tells a story of a young woman coming into her own, in this world. “That’s when he took my heart in his hands. And kissed it gently. He opens up his lips then said this poetry” with Erykah Badu’s discography serving as the narrative. It propels the story to heights never seen before in literature. Never finding dull moments, but enlightenment on every page. Erykah has voiced that she likes seeing interpretations of her music. Here’s one for the book lover and the music enthusiast in you.Javaris Squire tells the story in a way that only he had envisioned it. The story taps into the animalistic way of digesting quickly; while giving the reader enough to satisfy their hunger.


 Brave New World by Aldous Huxley (Book)/ (Audio)
Aldous Huxley's profoundly important classic of world literature, Brave New World is a searching vision of an unequal, technologically-advanced future where humans are genetically bred, socially indoctrinated, and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively uphold an authoritarian ruling order--all at the cost of our freedom, full humanity, and perhaps also our souls. “A genius [who] who spent his life decrying the onward march of the Machine” (The New Yorker), Huxley was a man of incomparable talents: equally an artist, a spiritual seeker, and one of history’s keenest observers of human nature and civilization. 

Brave New World, his masterpiece, has enthralled and terrified millions of readers and retains its urgent relevance to this day as both a warning to be heeded as we head into tomorrow and as thought-provoking, satisfying work of literature. Written in the shadow of the rise of fascism during the 1930s, Brave New World likewise speaks to a 21st-century world dominated by mass-entertainment, technology, medicine and pharmaceuticals, the arts of persuasion, and the hidden influence of elites.

"Aldous Huxley is the greatest 20th-century writer in English." —Chicago Tribune




The Autobiography of Gucci Mane by Gucci Mane (Book)/(Audio)

 For the first time, Gucci Mane tells his story in his own words. It is the captivating life of an artist who forged an unlikely path to stardom and personal rebirth. Gucci Mane began writing his memoir in a maximum-security federal prison. Released in 2016, he emerged radically transformed. He was sober, smiling, focused, and positive—a far cry from the Gucci Mane of years past.

In his extraordinary autobiography, the legend takes us to his roots in Alabama, the streets of East Atlanta, the trap house, and the studio where he found his voice as a peerless rapper. He reflects on his inimitable career and in the process confronts his dark past—years behind bars, the murder charge, drug addiction, career highs, and lows—the making of a trap god. It is one of the greatest comeback stories in the history of music.




 Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick 
(Book)/ (Audio)
 By 2021, the World War has killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remain to covet any living creature, and for people who can’t afford one, companies built incredibly realistic simulacra: horses, birds, cats, sheep. They’ve even built humans. Immigrants to Mars received androids so sophisticated they are indistinguishable from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans can wreak, the government bans them from Earth. Driven into hiding, unauthorized androids live among human beings, undetected. Rick Deckard, an officially sanctioned bounty hunter, is commissioned to find rogue androids and “retire” them. But when cornered, androids fight back—with lethal force.
