    Michael was born with special electrical powers - and he’s not the only one. His friend Taylor has them too, and so do other kids around the world. With Michael’s friend Ostin, a techno-genius, they form the Electroclan, an alliance meant to protect them from a powerful group, the growing Order of Elgen, who are out to destroy them. The leader of the Elgen, Dr. Hatch, has kidnapped Michael’s mother, and time is running out. After narrowly escaping an Elgen trap, Ostin’s discovery of bizarre “rat fires” in South America leads the gang to the jungles of Peru.

    If you could sum up Rise of the Elgen in three words, what would they be?

    This is far better than the Twilight. For one they have character developments that are believable and more than just a love story.

    This book is a part 2. I recommend reading the other one first.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There are many quirks about this book that are very enjoyable.

    Calvin Coolidge, president from 1923 to 1929, never rated highly in polls, and history has remembered the decade in which he served as an extravagant period predating the Great Depression. Now Amity Shlaes provides a fresh look at the 1920s and its elusive president, showing that the mid-1920s was in fact a triumphant period that established our modern way of life: The nation electrified, Americans drove their first cars, and the federal deficit was replaced with a surplus.

    Where does Coolidge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a great biography. One point that was week was how bad the recession was that he inherited from Wilson, it was far worse than what Obama inherited. Yet Harding and Coolidge turned things around to a point that we had the roaring 20's. Then he looked at what Hoover was doing and said - stock market is going to crash, and it did. He was a man of few words, but his actions meant far more.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Hunger Games in three words, what would they be?

    A frustrating story, as I never liked the story of the lottery in High School, I approached this one with apprehension. But this is far more than what the lottery was. This story - although entertaining - is a warning. Do not believe what you are fed by the official line in the news. Beware of feeding your belly too much, it makes you weak. Do not assume those who seem week cannot over come you by their wits and if oppressed, will one day be your undoing.

    You'll never again think of Santa Claus in quite the same way. Here is a touching rendition of the historical origins of our modern-day Santa by an in-demand speaker reacquaints us with the true meaning of Christmas.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it goes into who St.Nicholas really was. It brings up stories I have never heard about him. It also gets into what happened after his death for miracles that are associated with him.

    Sharing memories from early childhood through her life as a Carmelite nun, Therese opens her heart to us. This bride of Christ reveals her passion and longing for union with God. Her simplicity is charming and we begin to believe that we can travel the path to salvation that she points out to us.

    Story
    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Autobiography of Saint Therese of Lisieux?

    As she is trying to do the little things for Jesus - I am realizing that am falling short. She does such little things and it is so much more than I can even begin to do.


    What about Sherry Kennedy Brownrigg’s performance did you like?

    She matched the sanguine personality of St. Therese.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Makes me want to try more.

    The thrilling follow-up to Scholar - in which, after discovering a coup attempt and preventing a bloody civil war, Quaeryt was appointed princeps of Tilbor - begins a new episode in the young Imager's life. Now second only to the governor, and still hiding his powers as an Imager, Quaeryt is enjoying his new position, as well as his marriage to Lord Bhayar's youngest sister, Vaelora, when a volcanic eruption devastates the old capital of Telaryn. He and his wife are dispatched to Extela, Telaryn's capitol city, to replace the governor killed in the eruption.

    Lore says: "Better than Scholar but not great."

    Would you listen to Princeps again? Why?

    Yes I will listen again. Probably a few times waiting for the next one. How could he do that? Leave it where there is plotting and planning going on, it was almost stopping in the middle of the story.
