    These selections from the many writings of Thomas Sowell over a period of half a century cover social, economic, cultural, legal, educational, and political issues. The sources range from Dr. Sowell’s letters, books, newspaper columns, and articles in both scholarly journals and popular magazines. The topics range from latetalking children to tax cuts for the rich, baseball, race, war, the role of judges, medical care, and the rhetoric of politicians.

    Thomas Sowell is a national treasure. The first book I read was Migrations & Culture, next the Vision of the Anointed and then Race and Culture. This book is a MUST read. I will read again and again.

    Done for the day don't want to read to your children - let Audible do it for you. (No, I'm not on their payroll). I do the same thing myself and I'm an adult. Read these as a child still love them as an adult. Share them with your children and let Audible do the work!

    He's a self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He's also a knight errant who's wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: he'll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half.

    I love the Muppet's Christmas Carol but if you want your family to experience the book as written this is for you. Suitable for 8 and up (depending on your children) - not as creepy as it sounds, with a wonderful and uplifting message at the end.

    Bram Stoker's masterpiece is at the same time intensely romantic and very modern. It unfolds the story of a Transylvanian Don Juan, the aristocratic Count Dracula who preys on desirous damsels.

    The recovery of the magnificent gem in Lord Attenbury's dazzling heirloom launched a shell-shocked young aristocrat on his career as a detective in 1921. Thirty years later, a happily married Lord Peter has just shared the secrets of that mystery with his wife, the detective novelist Harriet Vane. Suddenly, the new Lord Attenbury—grandson of Lord Peter’s first client—seeks his help to prove who owns the emeralds.

    In his unmistakable voice and with an insider's eye on history, former Vice President Dick Cheney tells the story of his life and the nearly four decades he has spent at the center of American politics and power. In My Time is truly the last word about an incredible political era, by a man who lived it and helped define it - with courage and without compromise.

    Story

    Do not look at this book as a biography of G.W. Bush. His time in his administration is a very small part of this book. This book takes you through his early days in Wyoming, his troubles as a young man at Yale, his years as a linesman and his decision to change his life and to go back to college. This is a story of a man's love for his girl (Lynne), his family and his country. Love him or hate him - he has devoted his life to the service of his country.

    As dusk approaches a small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984, mothers begin to call their children home. But on this warm evening, three children do not return from the dark and silent woods. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children, unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours.

    Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a 12-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery.

    Barbara says: "A near-flawless audiobook (but for one thing...)"

    Grabs you immediately! If you want a neat ending this is not for you. This is real life untidy and messy but I loved it and will read Tana again. Not all loose ends are tied up. The reader is great as is the author. Just sit back, relax and enjoy!
