    Annabeth is terrified. Just when she’s about to be reunited with Percy - after six months of being apart, thanks to Hera - it looks like Camp Jupiter is preparing for war. As Annabeth and her friends Jason, Piper, and Leo fly in on the Argo II, she can’t blame the Roman demigods for thinking the ship is a Greek weapon. With its steaming bronze dragon figurehead, Leo’s fantastical creation doesn’t appear friendly. Annabeth hopes that the sight of their praetor Jason on deck will reassure the Romans.

    When Arlene Fleet heads up north for college, she makes three promises to God: She will stop fornicating with every boy who crosses her path; never tell another lie; and never, ever go back to the "fourth rack of hell", her hometown of Possett, Alabama. All she wants from Him is one little miracle: make sure the body is never found.

    I was surprised by this book. I thought it would be funny or sweet and making fun of southern ways, but I quickly found myself invested in the characters, their back stories and cheering and jeering for many. Aunt Florence wins hands down for best character.

    Since the introduction of dietary guidelines calling for reduced fat intake in the 1970s, a strange phenomenon has occurred: Americans have steadily, inexorably become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever before. After putting more than two thousand of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing extraordinary results, cardiologist William Davis has come to the disturbing conclusion that it is not fat, not sugar, not our sedentary lifestyle that is causing America’s obesity epidemic—it is wheat.

    Story

    I had NO idea how much things had changed thru the years. Bloated, fat, unhappy and constipated I wandered thru life wondering what happened to me that I couldnt lose weight, I couldnt focus, I couldnt use the toilet like everyone else. Why do I have to have MS, sjoghrens, visual issues, and tummy aches. My naturopath gave me a diet and a list of books to read. After completely removing ALL grains from my diet my weight dropped easily and quickly without exercise and without going hungry. No more starvation, no more tricking myself into thinking I was doing good for myself by eating low fat, high fiber, and low sugar.

    Thank you for this book! I thought I was pretty enlightened about the food I ate. I was sooo wrong! from lot fed beef, to grains that hike your blood sugar to beans not being good for you. This book opened my eyes yet one more step towards being truly conscious about what I stuff in my gob.

    If you could sum up Codependent No More in three words, what would they be?

    This book reminds me to take care of ME first. We get spun into a circle of making sure everyone is cared for, nurtured,loved, fed, and their egos are boosted while silently fuming that our own needs go unmet. Why do I have to always be the one to reach out? This book helps to remind us that WE must take care of OUR needs first in order to be of any value to anyone else. I had forgotten that along the way.


    What other book might you compare Codependent No More to and why?

    I hate you! dont leave me!


    Have you listened to any of Christina Moore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No sure


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, this book needs to be taken in sections and absorbed, if you race thru it you miss so much. it is the book you want to listen to 50 times because you learn something you missed on time 30 by rushing.


    Any additional comments?

    Seriously it should be required reading in school.

    After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie's bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton's premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it's on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape...or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive.
