    I think I'm going to give up on this one. At first, I found the accent and the dialect interesting. But when I didn't realize that the first story had ended, I knew I was in trouble.

    Story

    Ben Franklin's own lively story of his early years is a unique, fascinating, and influential look at this American founding father. It has been taught in schools as a moral tract, as a guide to self-improvement, and as the Great American Success Story. It also is relished both for its insight into colonial life and the mind of the man who most affected the development of our democratic form of government.

    Overall

    I admit, I listened to this one while I was painting a room in my house. Since it's written in first person, it was like having Ben in the room with me while I was working. I chose this book since I knew I was going to see the Ben Franklin exhibit at the Atlanta History Center, and the exhibit mirros much of the book. What an open thinker he was!

    Annabelle is tired of being the lone failure in a family of overachievers. She's endured dead-end jobs and a broken engagement.

    I listened to this book while I was painting furniture. Hours would fly by as I listened and it kept my attention. I thought it was funny, interesting, and a good single girl's book. Enjoy!

    Story
    (14)

    By accepting the CEO job at Hewlett-Packard, an iconic company that had lost its way, Carly Fiorina confirmed her status as the most powerful businesswoman in America. But she also made herself a target for everyone who disliked her bold leadership style and resented her rapid rise. For six years, as she led HP through drastic changes and a controversial merger, Fiorina was the subject of endless analysis, debate, and speculation.

    Denise says: "Tough Choices"
    "Good stuff"
    Overall

    I love that this is read by Carly herself. I like the personal background that goes along with the business life she led. I thought it was informational, inspiring, and touching. Interesting reading.
