    Acclaimed biographer William Mann follows Elizabeth Taylor publicly as she makes her ascent at MGM, falls into (and out of) marriages, wins Oscars, fights studio feuds, and combats America's conservative values with her decidedly modern love affairs. But he also shines a light on Elizabeth's rich private life, revealing a love for her craft and a loyalty to the underdog that fueled her lifelong battle against the studio system.

    You recall "Ladies and Gentlemen" at the Circus? Well that is what is sounds like to me in the first hour ... going to send it back. Perhaps its because its not really telling a story, but like a documentary .. highlights .. anyhoo returning.

    In The Signature of All Things, Elizabeth Gilbert returns to fiction, inserting her inimitable voice into an enthralling story of love, adventure and discovery. Spanning much of the 18th and 19th centuries, the novel follows the fortunes of the extraordinary Whittaker family as led by the enterprising Henry Whittaker - a poor-born Englishman who makes a great fortune in the South American quinine trade, eventually becoming the richest man in Philadelphia.

    Story

    I was a bit ambivalent about someone else doing the reading, and was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed listening to her. Wonderful engaging story and as others have shared I didn't want it to end.

    For those who are seeking a path of simplicity, not bound by the trappings of spiritual practice, Adyashanti brings a fresh and humble approach to Zen wisdom. "Don't think that awakening is the end," teaches Adyashanti. "Awakening is the end of seeking, the end of the seeker, but it is the beginning of a life lived from your true nature."

    I simply cannot get enough of Adya. Very thankful I am able to hear what he is teaching and open to having deeper experiences on my road to awakening from the dream.
