    Repairman Jack is back! Jack can fix any problem, natural or supernatural, for a price. Now, in his next gripping adventure, he takes on two cases at once. The first involves a nun being blackmailed. What’s in those photos, she won’t say, but with her meager savings just about exhausted, she hires Jack to help her. The second: an elderly woman needs Jack to find her missing son. Jack must infiltrate the inner reaches of the Dormentalist Church, a secretive, globe-spanning cult whose members include some of the biggest and most powerful names in entertainment, sports, and politics.

    Love Life serves up another delicious selection of intimate stories and observations from Rob Lowe's life, told with humor, warmth, and brutal honesty. After writing his acclaimed debut effort, Lowe felt he had more stories to share and many more friends to introduce. The result is a touching memoir about the business and craft of acting, the pitfalls of success, family, love, and much more.

    LESLIE DOHENY-HANKS says: "Insightful, interesting and uplifting"

    I'm not really sure what to say, other than it wasn't as interesting as the first book. He does well as a narrator, but this book was missing the spice of the first book.

    In the mid-70s, Steve Martin exploded onto the comedy scene. By 1978 he was the biggest concert draw in the history of stand-up. In 1981 he quit forever. Born Standing Up is, in his own words, the story of "why I did stand-up and why I walked away".

    From the unique perspective of David Sedaris comes a new collection of essays taking his listeners on a bizarre and stimulating world tour. From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, we learn about the absurdity and delight of a curious traveler's experiences.

    What did you like best about Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls? What did you like least?

    Some of the Chapters were very creative and funny.


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Sedaris again?

    No...


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

    It's almost dry witty stand up, sometimes it's funny.


    Do you think Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. It's arbitrary.


    Any additional comments?

    He's screwed up, but he spends most of his time making fun of other people.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was a good listen. This girl's life was hard from the time she was three. You feel for her, trying to escape her "genetic" short comings. The abuse is shocking.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tatum. Mostly from her child aged movies.

    Chronicling his embodiment of the American Dream, Total Recall covers Schwarzenegger's high-stakes journey to the United States, from creating the international bodybuilding industry out of the sands of Venice Beach, to breathing life into cinema's most iconic characters, and becoming one of the leading political figures of our time. Proud of his accomplishments and honest about his regrets, Schwarzenegger spares nothing in sharing his amazing story.

    What was most disappointing about Arnold Schwarzenegger’s story?

    He's an egomaniac, and still didn't tell the whole truth.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Stephen Lang and Arnold Schwarzenegger ’s performances?

    NO.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I felt sorry for the people he had hurt.


    Any additional comments?

    He should go and find brigitte nielsen drunk in the park and spend their wrecked lives together.

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    Which character – as performed by James Marsters – was your favorite?

    James Marsters makes the book extra enjoyable. I'd put him right up there with Dick Hill. I'm glad he's back, reading as Dresden.

    When the world was young, and its name was Faerie, the power of magic ruled - and the Elfstones warded the race of Elves and their lands, keeping evil at bay. But when an Elven girl fell hopelessly in love with a Darkling boy of the Void, he carried away more than her heart. Thousands of years later, tumultuous times are upon the world now known as the Four Lands. Users of magic are in conflict with proponents of science. Elves have distanced their society from the other races. The Druid order is threatened.

    Still in his early 30s, Chris is on the verge of completing a tour of every country on earth – he’s already visited more than 175 nations - and yet he’s never held a “real job” or earned a regular paycheck. Rather, he has a special genius for turning ideas into income, and he uses what he earns both to support his life of adventure and to give back. In The $100 Startup, he tells you how to lead of life of adventure, meaning and purpose - and earn a good living.
