    In The Shoe Bird, Jim Dale brings to life a flock of unforgettable bird characters: Arturo the parrot, Gloria the goose, Minerva the owl, and even the extinct Dodo! This is Eudora Welty's fantastical story of how some feathered friends made a fateful switch from flying to wearing shoes, little knowing that they would soon become the prey of Freddy the Cat!

    The latest novel from number-one internationally best-selling author Paulo Coelho is a classic of inspiration and reflection, a meditation on life, love, and the significance of change. A novel of philosophical reflection set in Jerusalem during the time of the Crusades. Here a community of Christians, Arabs, and Jews who have long lived together harmoniously have been warned of an imminent attack and certain destruction. Contemplating their demise, the community assembles to seek the wise counsel of a Greek Copt.

    Step inside this captivating account of Paulo Coehlo's pilgrimage along the road to Santiago. This fascinating parable explores the need to find one's own path. In the end, we discover that the extraordinary is always found in the ordinary and simple ways of everyday people. Part adventure story, part guide to self-discovery, this compelling tale delivers the perfect combination of enchantment and insight.

    Here, not a moment too soon, is a genuine reason not to be afraid of our Tomorrows. The author of seven New York Times best sellers in the world-captivating Conversations with God series, Neale Donald Walsch offers us a striking explanation for the upheaval we are seeing all over our planet right now, then proposes a simple plan by which we can impact both our personal and collective future in an extraordinarily positive way. Here, at last, is something we can do — and do easily — to help our world.

    The author is a social worker who specializes in research. She has previously done extensive research and writing on the topics of shame and living a Wholehearted life, a life filled with courage, engagement, and purpose. In doing this research, the author recognized problems in her own life that prevented her from following her own advice. One of these problems was a fear of being vulnerable.

    Researcher and thought leader Dr. Brené Brown offers a powerful new vision that encourages us to dare greatly: to embrace vulnerability and imperfection, to live wholeheartedly, and to courageously engage in our lives. In Daring Greatly, Dr. Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability. Based on 12 years of research, her book argues that vulnerability is not weakness but rather our clearest path to courage, engagement, and meaningful connection.

    Transform your life. Rewrite your destiny. his most personal novel to date, internationally best-selling author Paulo Coelho returns with a remarkable journey of self-discovery. Like the main character in his much-beloved The Alchemist, Paulo is facing a grave crisis of faith. As he seeks a path of spiritual renewal and growth, he decides to begin again: to travel, to experiment, to reconnect with people and the landscapes around him. Setting off to Africa, and then to Europe and Asia via the Trans-Siberian Railway, he initiates a journey to revitalize his energy and passion.

    Make peace with God and peace with yourself, in the end there is nobody else. True to Paulo this book makes one ponder, think, puts you on an inward journey. With a little help the narrator might blossom into a more in touch with his feeling reader. The performance was killing the great revelations of the two main characters in the story. Still, Paulo this one stole my heart: great work

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I love Robin Sharma's work, he is a great inspiration, although this book did not really touched me


    What was most disappointing about Robin Sharma’s story?

    It just does not come to a point


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narrating was fine


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

    Yes I think it has a certain principle it wants to bring to the listener/reader but it took like forever to get the the point


    Any additional comments?

    I am still a big fan of Robin
