  • Heads in Beds: A Reckless Memoir of Hotels, Hustles, and So-Called Hospitality

    Jacob Tomsky has worked in hotels for more than a decade, doing everything from valet parking to manning the front desk. He's checked you in, checked you out, separated your white panties from the white bed sheets, parked your car, tasted your room service, cleaned your toilet, denied you a late check out, given you a wake-up call, eaten M&Ms out of your mini-bar, laughed at your jokes, and taken your money. And in Heads in Beds, he pulls back the curtain on the hospitality business.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    George Orwell depicts a gray, totalitarian world dominated by Big Brother and its vast network of agents, including the Thought Police - a world in which news is manufactured according to the authorities' will and people live tepid lives by rote. Winston Smith, a hero with no heroic qualities, longs only for truth and decency. But living in a social system in which privacy does not exist and where those with unorthodox ideas are brainwashed or put to death, he knows there is no hope for him.

    What a vision! If you haven't read it, its time! Funny, disturbing, scary & possible. From 1949 ... or 1984 ... or 2013? Spot on Narration by Simon Prebble. Don't let this classic pass you by.

    Space is a world devoid of the things we need to live and thrive: air, gravity, hot showers, fresh produce, privacy, beer. Space exploration is in some ways an exploration of what it means to be human. How much can a person give up? How much weirdness can they take? What happens to you when you can’t walk for a year? Have sex? Smell flowers? What happens if you vomit in your helmet during a space walk? Is it possible for the human body to survive a bailout at 17,000 miles per hour?

    Awesome book for someone interested in space & NASA. Roach's writing style allows for a lot of info to be covered with ease, all while trying not to fall out of the chair from laughter. Burr scores again with her perfect narration.

    Last summer, The New Yorker published chef Anthony Bourdain's shocking, "Don't Eat Before Reading This." Now, the author uses the same "take-no-prisoners" attitude in his deliciously funny and shockingly delectable audiobook, sure to delight gourmands and philistines alike.

    This book explains that the science in Battlestar Galactica has a lot to say about the use of science and technology in our lives today. What are the principles behind artificial gravity and sublight propulsion? Are Cylons men or machines? How are humanoid Cylons able to interface with computers? By tackling these and other intriguing questions, this book takes us billions of miles away from Earth so that we can turn around and see ourselves from a different perspective.

    It's been 20 years since the end of the Cylon war. The 12 human colony worlds are rebuilding and the Cylons...the Cylons have been just too quiet. They are nowhere to be found. The robotic race that tried to obliterate their creators has gone to parts unknown in deep space.

    The Cylons' Secret set between the first and second Cylon Wars is an interesting story for the BSG Fan. With elements taken from the re-imagined series as well as the short lived Caprica series it tells of a young Adama and Zerek and the Cylons' quest to survive. Excellent stand alone story. Jonathan Davis delivers another awesome narration.

    Eleven storeys high, a sixth of a mile long and a list of passengers collectively worth 250 million dollars…On 10th April 1912 the ‘unsinkable’ Titanic left Southampton on her maiden voyage to New York. At 11.40pm on the 14th April, the Titanic collided with an iceberg and was lost. 1,500 people died in the freezing sea. Legends and stories grew and even now the whole affair still sends shivers down the spine.

    A must Listen for those interested in the tragic story of the Titanic. Walter Lord earns five stars for his research and telling of this event, and who better to hear it from since he had relatives on board. Martin Jarvis delivers a stellar performance and his English accent is the perfect topper.
