    Folly Beach is the land of Cate Cooper's childhood, the place where all the ghosts of her past roam freely. Cate never thought she'd wind up in a tiny cottage on this breathtakingly lovely strip of coast. But circumstances have changed, leaving Cate homeless, broke, and unmoored. Yet Folly Beach holds more than just memories. Once upon a time another woman found unexpected bliss and comfort within its welcoming arms. An artist, writer, and colleague of the revered George Gershwin, Dorothy Heyward enjoyed the greatest moments of her life at Folly....

    Story

    Who wouldn't want to sit in those chairs beside the beach? Chosen as my summer folly, this book turned out to be a lurching, disjointed, and almost painful listen. Narrator Robin Miles does a nice job, but despite her efforts I had to force myself to return to this recording, often feeling I had been caught in an undertow. I would have enjoyed this book if it had not included painful interruptions of that terrible play. The best thing about the book was it's cover. The picture, fonts and layout captivated my attention. Too bad I couldn't have just bought a poster.

  • 1177 B.C.: The Year Civilization Collapsed

    In 1177 B.C., marauding groups known only as the "Sea Peoples" invaded Egypt. The pharaoh’s army and navy managed to defeat them, but the victory so weakened Egypt that it soon slid into decline, as did most of the surrounding civilizations. After centuries of brilliance, the civilized world of the Bronze Age came to an abrupt and cataclysmic end. Kingdoms fell like dominoes over the course of just a few decades. No more Minoans or Mycenaeans. No more Trojans, Hittites, or Babylonians.

    Story

    Sampling this title got me really excited about listening to it, but the actual production is the opposite of my expectations. A book of lists without a coherent history/story makes very dry listening. Great for putting one's self to sleep.

    This classic work unfolds the path of Christian faith and presents the eternal purpose of God in simple terms. Nee's discussion and writings on the book of Romans is truly challenging. His classic work takes on many difficult subjects and radically challenges current Christian culture.

    Story

    Watchman Nee presents the idea that as descendants of Adam we existed in and with him from the beginning and now are subject to fallen natures. All Christians should be familiar with the secrets in this Christ centered book, understanding why we need redemption and how Christ's sacrifice satisfies that need. Highly recommended.

    Listen to this book and send your nonverbal intelligence soaring. Joe Navarro, a former FBI counterintelligence officer and a recognized expert on nonverbal behavior, explains how to "speed-read" people: decode sentiments and behaviors, avoid hidden pitfalls, and look for deceptive behaviors. You'll also learn how your body language can influence what your boss, family, friends, and strangers think of you.

    Very valuable and interesting information presented in a classroom manner, a little dry and could be boring except the content is fascinating. Will listen to repeatedly. Downloaded the PDF which is helpful but I feel could use some fleshing out. I am using what I have learned a lot. I recommend this book to everyone.

    According to time management expert Laura Vanderkam, mornings hold the key to taking control of our schedules. If we use them wisely, we can build habits that will allow us to lead happier, more productive lives. Drawing on real-life anecdotes and scientific research that shows why the early hours of the day are so important, Vanderkam reveals how successful people use mornings to help them accomplish things that are often impossible to take care of later in the day.

    Get the most important tasks done first thing in the morning. I liked her repeated mentions of using that time for prayer. Short listen with some repetition, worth listening to. Looking forward to more from this author.
