    Three hundred years from now, Earth has been rendered uninhabitable due to the technological catastrophe known as the Nanocaust. Archaeologist Verity Auger specializes in the exploration of its surviving landscape. Now, her expertise is required for a far greater purpose. Something astonishing has been discovered at the far end of a wormhole: mid-twentieth-century Earth, preserved like a fly in amber.

    At last the CD audio programme is now available as a download. Do you want to lose weight? Have you tried diets and failed? Do you want a completely new approach? A gastric band is a radical, surgical operation that reduces the available space in the stomach.

    I hope this book helps people. The audiobook should be in 2 parts, one part for the first time listener and the other part for the recommended continued listening.

    Live the life you've always wanted to live! 100 Ways to Motivate Yourself is packed with techniques for breaking down negative barriers and pessimistic thoughts that prevent you from fulfilling your goals and dreams. It's easy to get stuck in a humdrum life and only fantasize about what "could have been". Motivational speaker Steve Chandler helps you change that way of thinking to what "will be". His ideas will help you create an action plan for living out your vision.

    This book needs to have a pdf file with the 100 ways. The book is to short and most of the ways to motivate yourself are nothing new. How about 100 ways to make money: buy low sell high. hahahahaha

    In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man's struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them. Enter, if you will, into the world of the undead.

    Erich von Däniken's Chariots of the Gods is a work of monumental importance---the first book to introduce the shocking theory that ancient Earth was visited by aliens. This world-famous best seller has withstood the test of time, inspiring countless books and films, including the author's own popular sequel, The Eye of the Sphinx.

    I like this book, has lots of great theories. But it is outdated, I recomend other books unless you know nothing about Erich Von Daniken.

    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.
