Uber Chronicles: Field Notes from the Front Seat

by Jessie Newburn

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to drive for Uber? Have you ever been curious as to what kind of people use Uber? Where they are going? What do they talk about during the ride? How do they behave, or misbehave?

This is the book to read!

Jessie Newburn’s “Uber Chronicles: Field Notes from the Front Seat,” the first in a series, answers those questions and more ... in the form of storytelling.

Driving for Uber since early 2016, Jessie chronicles her experiences with each--and every--passenger, from the conversations with interesting people with fascinating stories, to the incredibly everyday, ho-hum-ness of people who just need a ride from one place to another.

But don't let the ho-hum-ness of the ride fool you.

Taking Off

by Ty F. Clemens

A few years after graduating college, Ty was fed up with "working" and "acting responsibly like every other adult is expected to," and chose instead to quit his job and backpack across Europe and Asia. Taking Off is the mostly true memoir of his trip.Yes, this may come as a shock, but a twenty-something wrote about his experiences travelling. Kind of like when Ashley from HR sent you the link to her vacation blog. The differences being that this book is longer, has less pictures of Ashley in a bikini, and gives you no real obligation to read it since you'll never bump into Ty in the break room where he'll ask you how you liked it. But regardless of obligation, you can still appreciate this book, as it consists of several humorous, interesting, and worthwhile anecdotes that are way more int...

To Travel Hopelessly: Five Years of Teaching English as a Foreign Language (The Burnout Trilogy Book 1)

by English Teacher X

In 1995, after a year of aimless wandering, a broke, parasite-infested backpacker answered an ad in a newspaper in Bangkok and inadvertently became English Teacher X, working, in the next five years, in seven different cities in five different countries.

From the neon-and-vomit-laden streets of Seoul to historic beer-soaked Prague, from a tropical island paradise in Thailand to an industrial hellhole of Post-Soviet Russia, English Teacher X describes, in raw and violent imagery, the life of an English teacher overseas, encountering dishonest and exploitative employers, degenerate colleagues, corrupt police, gold-hearted prostitutes and cold-hearted "English groupies", with drugs and alcohol for all, while questing in vain for the Authentic Cultural Experience.

A Land Ruled by Silence: Tales of Transitions in the Warm Heart of Africa

by Eliza McCullen

The gate to the airplane led us gently down a ramp. On the wall in front of us was a sign indicating our destination: Lilongwe, Malawi. I felt my chest start to tighten and forced myself to breathe deeply. This was it. What we had waited for for five years, ever since we got married. Well, at least it was what my husband waited for. And I had gone along.That meant giving up a job I loved, one in which I was building a career, moving out of our first starter home, a tiny box of a house in Alexandria that was now rented to three men and a dog, and leaving behind all that was familiar to me. A professional working wife and mother used to the hustle and bustle of Washington, I suddenly found myself in one of the poorest and quietest countries in Africa.I was able to land a position at USAID as...
