    From the author of the classic mysteries starring the irrepressible CIA spy, Mrs. Pollifax, comes a delightfully different mystery with a most unholy twist. Filled with all the hilarious surprises and good old-fashioned suspense that her fans have come to love, A Nun in the Closet is the story of two high-spirited nuns who accidentally stumble into a dangerous plot involving ghosts, gangsters, and Protestants.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Nun in the Closet to be better than the print version?

    The audio edition enhanced the print version - I love Dorothy Gilman novels so I am partial to print first and audio second. I think though that I laughed a bit more with the audio version of A Nun in the Closet,

    There are a great many horror stories from people who have stayed in hotels and had a miserable experience. No offense to those people, but working there isn't all rainbows and sausages either. The front desk, usually the first and last point of contact, is where the vast majority of foolishness takes place. And the front desk agent is witness to it all. One of those front desk agents was me.

    Having worked within Hotel Industry since my teens, I figured this was a sure buy for memory lane. Some of the stories amusing - but - took me a long time to get thru the audio of the book - did not keep my attention as much as I thought it would. Yet, I found my self shaking my head at so many of the true things that happen in hotel world.

    The paradox of awareness is very profound and yet very simple. It can't be described because it has no objective qualities and no limitation. Sometimes it comes naturally to the surface when we are fully in the present moment and no longer lost in thought or mental projections. Pure consciousness is neither high nor low, neither pleasant nor unpleasant, neither good nor bad. No matter where we are, no matter what we are doing, we always have an immediate access to that inner stillness.

    I keep stopping in to listen to "The Magic of Awareness" just to remind myself of what is at this moment is what I am aware of - I know sounds like I have no clue - but - the book makes me think - I like to think. Listen it to it to unwind from a stressful work day. I am not even sure if I understand it all ..but..like the subject.

    For over 30 years, Andrew Aitken "Andy" Rooney had the last word on the most watched television program in history. "A Few Minutes with Andy Rooney", a part of the CBS News program 60 Minutes, aired from 1978 to 2011. A man of wit, rue, and common sense, Rooney spoke to us candidly about what drove us crazy, what brought us joy, and what made us human. Hear the man himself as he reads some of his finest newspaper essays, offering his observations on a variety of topics.

    I can picture Andy Rooney on 60 minutes as I listen to his meanderings of thought of so many topics - I laughed out loud during much of the listen - shed some tears too. I am so happy to have Sweet & Sour in my Library.

    I love Robert B Parker's Spenser series - read all the books (yep the hard and soft copies). Have listened to the tape, the Mp3, and now the Ipad versions. Love the stories still and even more - A Catskill Eagle is one that was worth a "credit" to listen to all over again. I enjoy the dynamics between Spenser, Susan, and Hawke. As well as the interaction with characters that have weaved their way thru the pages in previous story lines. Good book. Great Characters. Mr Parker did a great job and the narration is pretty good too!

    Novelist Anne George injects murder, mayhem, and laughs into her popular mysteries. Nominated for an Agatha Award, this hilarious tale of two “60 something” sisters reveals the deadly consequences of a hasty real estate purchase. Retired Alabama school teacher Patricia Anne thinks her older sister, flamboyant Mary Alice, has lost her cotton-pickin’ mind. On a whim, Mary Alice bought the Skoot ’n’ Boot, the local country western night spot where she and her boyfriend hang out. Mary Alice insists it will be easy to run the club - until the previous owner is found executed.

    Bought this as a CD many moons ago ..played it on a trip, passed it on to family and friends and the enjoyment was shared. May seem a bit disjointed at first - I had no clue that I would laugh out loud often as well as shed some tears. It is a good feel story. Blue bird of happiness has nothing on this Redbird!! (So now I bought it for Ipad to enjoy all over again!)

    Trenton, New Jersey’s favorite used-car dealer, Jimmy Poletti, was caught selling a lot more than used cars out of his dealerships. Now he’s out on bail and has missed his date in court, and bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is looking to bring him in. Leads are quickly turning into dead ends, and all too frequently into dead bodies. Even Joe Morelli, the city’s hottest cop, is struggling to find a clue to the suspected killer’s whereabouts. These are desperate times, and they call for desperate measures.

    Found lots of laughter in this novel - good to have the group cast in the chapters. If you have no clue on my headline review - well, take a listen or pick up the book to read. It is amusing and I am not even thru the book yet. I am savouring many of the chapters while at work so have to stop back for a listen when home. I like this one ..Thanks!

    Throughout his years with the LAPD, Peter Decker has handled a number of tough cases and strange killers. But few of his previous assignments compare to his latest case. When Hobart Penny is found dead in his apartment, the cops think that his pet cat - an adult female tiger - attacked the reclusive elderly billionaire. But it soon becomes clear that the beast that killed the eccentric inventor is all too human.

    Peter & Rina are back to the story line I enjoy - part family & part police stuff. Been lost in the narration during this week's night shift of work - loving every moment I can listen. Think my cubicle co-workers are amused at my verbal comments and physical cringes - too often I am the quiet one. Tonight (8/15), I get to savor the finale. THE BEAST reminds me of my excitement of reading THE RITUAL BATH so many moons ago.

    This subliminal hypnosis program works for you on three different levels - positive affirmations will be spoken during your deepest state of open relaxation, low binaural beats that are almost imperceptible to the human ear work with your subconscious mind to anchor the positive affirmations to help you unleash your psychic power, and ancient Solfeggio tones encourage healing and wholeness with powerful harmonic frequencies. Along with seven different soothing sounds of nature, these three elements combined together are the triad of positive change that will propel you toward a better future.

    The change of sounds sometimes distracts me from the hypnosis..either too many ..or too sharp..I do better with water and wind..might just have to play it more often to get comfortable with the audio.
