    The Return of the King is the towering climax to J. R. R. Tolkien’s trilogy that tells the saga of the hobbits of Middle-earth and the great War of the Rings. In this concluding volume, Frodo and Sam make a terrible journey to the heart of the Land of the Shadow in a final reckoning with the power of Sauron. In addition to narrating the prose passages, Rob Inglis sings the trilogy’s songs and poems a capella, using melodies composed by Inglis and Claudia Howard, the Recorded Books studio director.

    What did you love best about The Return of the King?

    The book is long but worth listening to. There are so many aspects of the book that it is hard to say what I lvoe the best. This is a classic that can be listened to over and over and loved each time.


    What does Rob Inglis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I cannot read the book but to listen to Rob read it helps me to hear the characters and story so clearly. He did a great job reading and expressing the emotions and meanings.

    This is an exclusive, original adventure for the 10th Doctor, read by David Tennant. Featuring additional music and effects, Doctor Who: Dead Air has never been previously published. Hot on the heels of a creature that exists through sound, the Doctor lands on a pirate radio station boat in the late 1960s. The creature has already killed some of the DJs, and the Doctor befriends the survivors. But then the lights go out, and a desperate race for survival begins.

    In the year 1912, 19-year-old Christy Huddleston leaves home to teach school in the Smoky Mountains – and comes to know and love the resilient people of the region, with their fierce pride, their dark superstitions, their terrible poverty, and their yearning for beauty and truth. But her faith will be severely challenged by trial and tragedy, by the needs and unique strengths of two remarkable young men, and by a heart torn between true love and unwavering devotion.

    This is a timeless, encouraging story that I have always loved. I wondered about the reader since I am not a fan of hers but she did justice to the book, to the story and the characters. I was there, in the area with her, seeing the people, the landscape and beauty.

    Most people know this book from the Academy Award-winning motion picture starring Winona Ryder. Now, introduce them to the sparkling American classic behind the movie: a charming portrait of the joys and hardships of the four sisters in Civil War New England. Separated by the war from their beloved parents, these "little women" struggle to find their place in the world.

    You could pray, or meditate, or dream, or visit a shaman, or a minister, or a hypnotherapist. With so many routes into inner consciousness, why write? Of all the ways to get in touch with God, as you understand God...to hear the small, still voice pointing you in the right direction...why take the time to write? One reason: it works. It works amazingly well. If you want to engage in a vibrant conversation with the wisdom that dwells just a hair below your conscious awareness, write.

    I felt this book was a encouraging book BUT the preview had made it sound as a Christian book. I think there were elements in there but the author is trying to be to "politically correct" and that was disappointing. I listened to most to get the jist-which was helpful but could not totally finish it due to disappointment in this aspect.

    The Queen of England has concocted a plan in which penniless aristocrat Lady Georgie is to entertain a Bavarian princess and conveniently place her in the playboy prince's path, in the hopes that he might finally marry.

    But queens never take money into account. Georgie has very little, which is why she moonlights as a maid-in-disguise.

    "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." These simple words go to the heart of Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food. Humans used to know how to eat well, Pollan argues. But the balanced dietary lessons that were once passed down through generations have been confused, complicated, and distorted by food industry marketers, nutritional scientists, and journalists-all of whom have much to gain from our dietary confusion.

    Michael Pollan has some very good information in this book, and Scott Brick portrays it very well in the reading. Michael backs up his information with studies (but then who doesn't) but it makes you look at the food you are eating in a different light. I highly recommend this book.
