    In 1956, when this novel was first published, communities all over New England snapped up copies to see if they were the town portrayed in the book. Peyton Place is the story of a repressive New England town known for its high standards of public morality, and the steamy sexual activities that take place behind its bedroom doors.

    I vaguely remember hearing the grown-ups talk about this when I was a child. The weekly series was a real hit - and now I know why. This was a captivating story - it made you angry, happy and sad.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Story

    I have been a little down lately....and knew I needed to snap out of it. I don't have or watch television and I've only heard of Tina Fey from people at work saying how funny she is. I decided to read the book....WOW! She is hilarious! I've recommended this to several friends, although I'm curious how my 'more conservative' friends will take this....hopefully, for the fun it was meant to be! This was just what I needed! Thanks Tina!!!

    Based upon his weekly Harvard Business Review column (one of the most popular columns on HBR.com, receiving hundreds of thousands of unique page views a month), 18 Minutes clearly shows how busy people can cut through all the daily clutter and distractions and find a way to focus on those key items that are truly the top priorities in our lives.

    Story

    Listening to this audio book, it was astounding how much I could relate to. It was like the author had read my mind and uncovered the hidden mental struggles and unanswered questions that have floated around in my mind, waiting for something to trigger an 'aha moment'. Well, listening to this book, I quickly realized I need this as an eBook, as well....the message is just too valuable not to thoroughly absorb visually and audibly to learn and take the action I know I need to make, yet didn't know why or how to move forward....Awesome book. Thank you for this.

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 1

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    The author did an excellent job keeping several events going on simultaneously while keeping you involved and anxiously waiting for what was coming next. I appreciate a book that is unpredictable and spell binding.
