    Tasha convinces her husband, Max, to buy her a Sybian, but he only agrees if she can come up with a business plan to pay for it. Determined to keep her promise, she creates The Sybian Club and begins bringing women to the basement room set up just for her new toy. It becomes so popular, she has to enlist the help of new friend, Ashley, to keep up with the demand, and the women enjoy an exciting ride as the business thrives. But Tasha has developed feelings for Ashley, and doesn't know how to tell her husband.

    And you don't want slow in erotic fiction. At least I don't. The story-line is fun, even believable up until near the end. Jessica Chisolm's almost drawling voice is just right.

    Setting down his thoughts on swordplay, on winning, and on spirituality, legendary swordsman Miyamoto Musashi intended this modest work as a guide for his immediate disciples and future generations of samurai. He had little idea he was penning a masterpiece that would be eagerly devoured by people in all walks of life centuries after his death.

    Scott Brick has a pleasant voice, but the extensive commentary at the beginning is draggy. I'd probably have liked it better in text format, i.e. for study.

    Robust, peaceful, and confident, the Commonwealth dispatched a ship to investigate the mystery of a disappearing star, only to inadvertently unleash a predatory alien species that turned on its liberators, striking hard, fast, and utterly without mercy.The Prime are the Commonwealth's worst nightmare. Coexistence is impossible with the technologically advanced aliens, who are genetically hardwired to exterminate all other forms of life.

    Oh yeah, and the story was good too. Seriously, this is one of Hamilton's best stories. Exploring several possible outcomes of emergent technologies, and keeping my interest level consistently high. Very good stuff.

    From his 1935 debut with "The Universal History of Iniquity", through his immensely influential collections Ficciones and The Aleph, these enigmatic, elaborate, imaginative inventions display Borges' talent for turning fiction on its head by playing with form and genre and toying with language.

    The Great Recession has shuffled Clay Jannon out of his life as a San Francisco Web-design drone - and serendipity, sheer curiosity, and the ability to climb a ladder like a monkey has landed him a new gig working the night shift at Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. But after just a few days on the job, Clay begins to realize that this store is even more curious than the name suggests. There are only a few customers, but they come in repeatedly and never seem to actually buy anything....

    The good news is that you have just awakened into Eternal Life. You are going to live forever. Immortality is a reality. A medical miracle? Not exactly. The bad news is that you are a scrap of electronic code. The world you see around you, the you that is seeing it, has been digitized, scanned, and downloaded into a virtual reality program. You are a Copy that knows it is a copy. The good news is that there is a way out.

    This was the most painful narration I've had to listen to. Usually I can get used to a voice but this was... just not workign for me at all. Sorry, dude, but your voice was like nails on a blackboard. I'm sure you're a nice person though.

    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.

    I was surprised by how much I got into this book. It was a tad slow to start, not unusual for NS, but I was drawn in by the second or third chapter. Halfway through I found myself having a hard time tearing away. I liked.

    Jon Ronson is fascinated by madness, extraordinary behaviour and the human mind. He has spent his life investigating crazy events, following fascinating people and unearthing unusual stories. Collected here from various sources (including the Guardian and GQ America) are the best of his adventures.

    Not as good as some, but what it lacks in depth it makes up for in breadth. Ronson's usual wry humor is as good as ever.

    Much more enjoyable than the Ender series, despite the fact that I'd give Ender's Game 5 stars. Ender was best as a standalone. This one.. well, I dont know yet. But the handling of time effects and so on, while not particularly scientific, are very interesting to read. And the characters are interesting, slowly gaining depth throughout.

    Except the sister. She just appears mid-book and dives right in... I felt that she was not given enough time and attention as a main character.

    This little romp in the Vorkosigan universe is just plain fun. It might not be the place to start if you are unfamiliar, but it I really enjoyed getting the perspective of some normally "supporting cast" characters.
