    Min Dobbs knows that happily-ever-after is a fairy tale, especially with a man who asked her to dinner to win a bet. Cal Morrisey knows commitment is impossible, especially with a woman as cranky as Min Dobbs. When they say good-bye at the end of their evening, they cut their losses and agree never to see each other again. But Fate has other plans.

    Madeleine Wickham is Sophie Kinsella, and is just as delicious as her internationally best-selling Shopaholic series. Madeleine Wickham's bitingly funny and edgy style keeps fans coming back for more. So hold onto your haute couture hats, as you dive into the fantastic world of Wickham!

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    only for a listen while driving somewhere, or coloring your hair or other time when you'll only half listen.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Madeleine Wickham? Why or why not?

    yes, no one is perfect.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the scene's of the lead character's youth in India are pretty good, but short.


    Did The Gatecrasher inspire you to do anything?

    It made me appreciate my red-gold hair more.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration was pretty good but sometimes a little over played. Still, not bad.

    The explosive growth and low cost of online trading has created a new class of investor who can now make a living buying and selling stocks over the Internet in a way that was once reserved for Wall Street's most powerful brokerage firms and investment banks. Before taking to this fast-paced, high-risk playing field, it's absolutely essential that you have a firm grasp of the rules and a solid game plan.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Day Trade Online the most enjoyable?

    A pretty good explanation of how the market works. Written in an accessible way that's pretty entertaining for the subject matter.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Day Trade Online?

    Discussion of the market specialist.


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

    Verbal inflection that makes the experience more like listening to an enthusiastic friend.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    the secrets behind the market.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is not a 'How to' even though the first few paragraphs suggest that it is. Readers will learn about how the market works and the general scope of trading but little is revealed regarding the mechanics of making good trades. Recommended.
