    In celebration of the week-long, once-in-a-decade rite of Apert, the fras and suurs prepare to venture outside the concent's gates - opening them wide at the same time to welcome the curious "extras" in. During his first Apert as a fra, Erasmus eagerly anticipates reconnecting with the landmarks and family he hasn't seen since he was "collected". But before the week is out, both the existence he abandoned and the one he embraced will stand poised on the perilous brink of cataclysmic change.

    This was my first Neal Stephenson book, but definitely won't be the last. I just finished it and I am just amazed at the story that was told, an entire world was created, and you are taken on a journey of epic proportions.
    The reading of this book is possibly the best I've ever heard, and I've had an Audible membership for over 5 years.
    I highly, highly recommend this to anyone. It is a long book, and the first few chapters take a bit of work to get used to, but once you're in, wow...

    Widely respected meditation expert Shinzen Young presents proven strategies for pain-free living, drawing on over 20 years of field research and a lifetime of experience. Dr. Young teaches us how to "retrain" our relationship with pain by using traditional meditation techniques. He adapts the core principles of mindfulness training to a practical process that treats even the most chronic and extreme pain, possibly reducing the need for drugs or surgery.

    "Terrible Audio"
    Overall

    I am in chronic pain and I hoped I would be able to get something out of this book. The bottom line is the book is horribly read, just terrible. Long pauses and a monotonous voice made me turn this off. The paperback version may be better, but the audiobook is not worth it.

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    Great book! One of the best I've read in years!
