    An exciting, informative, and unquestionably humorous journey through the international fiber world with Linda Cortright, editor of Wild Fibers magazine. Travel with Linda from the Himalayas to Puget Sound, experience a helicopter sheep rescue in the mountains of New Zealand, drink yak butter tea, and spend a night on the tundra, learn about the ancient sheep of St. Kilda, and visit a buffalo ranch in Texas. These stories of exotic animals and the people who care for them will go straight to your heart.

    Tod Hudson was a typical teenager. He liked girls, sports, food and tolerated his younger brother, Nash. In fact, he had his whole life in front of him--and due to his bean sidhe heritage, it was going to be a very long life indeed. And then the car accident occurred.

    Great book! Kept me captivated to continue to listen. Was not boring in anyway and easy to understand no fancy language. The reader very good and liked how he switched voices.

    Conversations With My Dog shows a side of America's number one motivator that few may have suspected. He's nuts about his dog - and the feeling is obviously mutual. Their discussions about health, happiness, faith, and the nature of dogs and how to improve relationships - including the one Dirty Dog has with "Dad" - make this not only an enjoyable read, but one that will leave you with much to consider.

    Most of us have no idea what's really going on inside our heads. Yet brain scientists have uncovered details every business leader, parent, and teacher should know - such as the brain's need for physical activity to work at its best. How do we learn? What exactly do sleep and stress do to our brains? Why is multi-tasking a myth? Why is it so easy to forget - and so important to repeat new information? Is it true that men and women have different brains?

    Wonderful book. Learned a lot. She spoke simply that all would enjoy and not have to be a science major.

    Like golfing, fishing, and gardening, knitting is an obsession. It's an activity fraught with guilt, frustration, over-optimism, sly deception, and compulsion, along with passionate moments of creative enlightenment - not to mention heaps of yarn you really think you'll knit someday. The first step toward recovery is getting help - and having a good laugh at your compulsion. At Knit's End is a wicked and wickedly funny fix for any knitter.

    Overall

    I am addicted to Stephanie Pearl-McPhee!!!! Between knitting and her humor I could not stop laughing. She says what we think but do not say as a knitter. If you are not a knitter, this book will make no sense. I highly recommend you learn to knit and enjoy this gal's humor. I have never listened to a book 3 times in a row and can go for a fourth time. The Yarn Harlot you are the BEST!

    When a novel like Huckleberry Finn or The Yearling comes along, it defies customary adjectives because of the intensity of the response it evokes in the reader. Such a tale is Old Yeller; to listen to this eloquently simply story of a boy and his dog in the Texas hill country is an unforgettable and deeply moving experience.

    I love the old children classics. This is my taste. I read "The Tailors Daughter" that was so boring and not my personality. I think I need to stick to the children's books.

    Summer's Path is the remarkable story of Don Newport, an engineer that comes face to face with his personal destiny under extraordinary circumstances. After losing his job and his health insurance, Don learns he has a terminal disease with only a few months left to live. On his death bed, he meets Robert, a brazen angel of death that promises to help Don with a graceful exit.

    Good sentimental love story going. Then the New Age Stuff started and I stopped listening. I wished I read the reviews from the readers. I would not have wasted 1 credit on this one

    Mignon Fogarty, a.k.a. Grammar Girl, is determined to wipe out bad grammar - but she's also determined to make the process as painless as possible. One year ago, she created a weekly podcast to tackle some of the most common mistakes people make while communicating. More than seven million episodes have now been downloaded, and Mignon has dispensed grammar tips on Oprah and appeared on the pages of the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and USA Today.

    Excellent for those grammar challenged. She makes grammar fun and easy to learn. I need to hear this book about every 3 months to get all the info she gives. If you got A's in English this is not the book for you.

    Over the course of this gripping narrative, Dave Cullen approaches his subjects with unrivaled care and insight. What emerges are shattering portraits of the killers, the victims, and the community that suffered one of the greatest - and most socially and historically important - shooting tragedies of the 20th century.

    Why is it so difficult for men and women to get along? In this phenomenally popular and effective work, Dr. John Gray illustrates how differences in communication styles, behavior, and emotional needs can drive the two sexes apart, and offers ways to help keep them together.

  • The Abs Diet: The Six-Week Plan to Flatten Your Stomach and Keep You Lean for Life

    Great-looking abs are more than just a way to support the mirror industry. In fact, strong abs and flat stomachs are the ultimate indicator of overall health for both men and women. Great abs will help you live longer, sleep better, prevent back pain, and significantly improve your sex life! (And, hey, they don't look half-bad in the mirror, either.) Unfortunately, you could spend years on starvation diets and extreme exercise programs that never unearth those elusive stomach muscles.

    I have been skinny all my life. Then hit menopause and gained weight and could not get it off. This book is so wonderful. I am never hungry and must remember to eat all day. I even lost weight which I thought I could never do because of getting old.
