    Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life - dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge - he follows.

    If you could sum up Paper Towns in three words, what would they be?

    Teenage adventure and revelation.


    Any additional comments?

    John Green captures teenaged ness in spirit though stories of things that are generally fantastic, unrealistic, and yet somehow totally believable.

    If one George Carlin audio is funny, then two are funnier and three must be funniest, right? That's our thinking behind this new collection. t's a HighBridge library of laugh-out-loud, award-winning recordings featuring George himself performing many of his best bits.

    When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton's type is girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact. On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight, Judge Judy-loving best friend riding shotgun - but no Katherines.

    What other book might you compare An Abundance of Katherines to and why?

    Pretty much any John Green novel. They follow a formula, albeit an enjoyable one. Coming of age teens, going on a wacky adventure, often in the name of love, learn their lesson and return home/move on to starting their adulthood.

    In the fifth book of the multi-author Sundering series, New York Times best-selling author Troy Denning sends an embittered paladin, Kleef Kenric, on a quest to stop evil forces from taking advantage of the chaos rolling across the land of Faern and claiming dominion over the entirety of the Realms. Stubbornly clinging to his family’s worship of a long-forgotten god, Kleef Kenric soon discovers that his god has blessed him with divine gifts, making him one of a new group of Chosen cropping up around the Realms.

    It is a great cross section of my favorite setting and furthers the story of the Sundering in very meaningful ways.


    Any additional comments?

    There were some opportunities for better character development, but all in all a decent story. Probably even better on my second listen.

    Long before he starred on some of television’s most beloved and long-running series such as Taxi and Who’s the Boss? and went on to distinguish himself in a variety of film and stage roles, Tony Danza was a walking contradiction: an indifferent student who dreamed of being a teacher. Inspiring a classroom of students was an aspiration he put aside for decades until one day it seemed that the most meaningful thing he could do was give his dream a shot. What followed was a year spent teaching 10th-grade English at Northeast High - Philadelphia’s largest high school with 3,600 students....

    What made the experience of listening to I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had the most enjoyable?

    I found that the author was upfront about his biases and the fact that his experience was not typical, but in fact his teaching was much easier than most. This level of honesty gave the story an air of truth that I appreciated.


    What did you like best about this story?

    An honest depiction of one persons experience teaching one hard class without trying to argue that this experience was typical of anything.

    The first book of this series was fine, but made me wonder if Lawhead had lost some of his magic...but in this book he got it back in spades. The reader is a perfect voice for Will Scarlet, who narrates the story, and telling the tale from Scarlet's perspective is engaging and interesting. I almost gave up on the series after book 1...but this book totally makes it all worthwhile, can't wait to check out the finale.

    Eleven-year-old Melody has a photographic memory that makes her the brightest kid in her school. Unfortunately, her teachers and doctors don’t believe she can even learn. Unable to talk, walk, or write, she longs to tell what she thinks and knows. Trapped inside her own mind, she finally discovers how to “speak.” And yet some may not be ready to hear her voice.

    A quick, easy read that is touching, although predictable. While written from one perspective everyone at school comes off as complete jerks. There isn't one compassionate teacher and all the students make the wrong choices when things really matter...all of them...stretches my suspension of disbelief a bit thin.

    In the fourth book of the multi-author Sundering series launched by New York Times bestselling author R.A.

Endless, pounding rain afflict the Sea of Fallen Stars and the coastal regions surrounding it.

But not only do Drizzt and his allies face a perilous journey through the Underdark and the dangers of the undead that lie within, but they must cross through a colony of drow, who would like nothing better than to see Drizzt Do’Urden dead.

    I can forgive the slight mispronunciation of some of the fantasy names, and commend how well the reader does with almost all of them. But a few normal English words drove me crazy. Bade does not sound the same as bad. And there are two ways to say live...the wrong one was used at least once. The reader was otherwise fantastic, brought the story alive, and the story holds up with old school Salvatore books while embracing the recent past, sometimes in unexpected ways...sometimes exactly how you expect.

    A Special Edition of the original radio series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1978 and recently voted the Nation's Favourite Audiobook in a Guardian poll. Starring Peter Jones, Simon Jones, Geoffrey McGivern, Mark Wing-Davey, Susan Sheridan and Stephen Moore, these six episodes (Fit the First to Fit the Sixth) have been remastered to modern-day standards by Dirk Maggs, and for the first time feature Philip Pope's arrangement of the familiar theme tune.
