    The words you use say a lot about you. Some words say that you are smart, eloquent, or persuasive. Others say that, uh, you don't know what you're talking about. Knowing which words to use and how to use them are keys to getting the most from your mind and making a lasting impression. Word Smart will help you learn the words you absolutely need to know!

    This particular book is a first for me since I normally listen audio books for entertainment; such as sci-fi and fantasy. While the audio is entertaining with the lessons, they continously reference a written guide and this auido book does not include a written guide, nor is there anything on the Audible site that allows you to download the guide. This leaves the listener with 1/2 of the lesson without the written guide to reference the words.

    Maddy Smith, born with a rusty-coloured rune shape on her hand, has always been an outsider in her village. For the good folk of Malbry believe a ruinmark to be a symbol of the old gods, a mark of magic. And that, as everyone knows, is the road to Chaos. Dangerous. But Maddy enjoys working magic, even if it is just to control some pesky goblins.

    Another young readers book I imagine, but still enjoyable for me to escape from the crazy busy world of franchising. Interesting mix of characters and colorful sceneries played out.

    A stable full of dragons to groom, train, and ride! That's A stable full of dragons to groom, train, and ride! That's Dragonsdale, a riding school run by Cara's dad. All Cara's friends are busy people preparing their dragons for the Island Championships; even spoiled Hortense, who dumps her hard work on guess who? But Cara doesn't mind. She loves every minute she can spend with the beautiful beasts. Because ever since her mom's terrible accident, Cara herself is forbidden to ride.

    This was the first book I purchased from Audible.com and it may be considered a book for young readers; no matter, I loved it. The story line was delightful and the characters popped into my imagination with ease and color.
