    101 Money Saving Tips to Help Reduce Debt and Build Wealth was created to help the 95% of the population that is retiring broke find more money to use to get out of debt before it's too late. Approximately only 5% of the world's population can retire financially secure. I created this book to help individuals apply simple techniques to find money that may be leaking out of their lives without them knowing it. It only takes a mind-shift and dedication to a simple plan to get out of debt as quickly as possible. The earlier you decide to start this system the more money you may be able to accumulate in your lifetime.

    Best bit of advice in the book that we all know, but need to stick to is ‘live below your means’. This book is excellent for people who have just left home and want some tips on their grocery bill or how to get the most boring, uptight dinner outing. If you can’t afford to purchase what is on a menu, then don’t go out…simple! I was disappointed with this book, as I was hoping on some real advise, helpful tips like instead of buying expensive cleaners, use 2 tablespoons of vinegar diluted in 500mls of water as a glass cleaner etc., but sadly no, this book was filled with collect coupons, use coupons, ask for coupons, blah, blah, blah. I know the author said she wanted to help with her readers getting out of debt, but I believe I would have helped myself better by saving my $5. Was there 101 tips? No!

    Whitney has been in so many foster homes that she can give a complete rundown on the most common varieties of foster parents - from the look-on-the-bright-side types to those unfortunate examples of pure evil. But one thing she doesn't know much about is trees. This means heading for Foster Home number 12 (which is all the way at the top of the map of California, where there looks to be nothing but trees) has Whitney feeling a little nervous. She is pretty sure that the middle of nowhere is going to be just one more place where a hyper, loud-mouthed kid who is messy and small for her age won't be welcome for long.

    The Author has done a great job of using truths into a fiction story. It is an easy way to digest a lot of facts about foster care and the impact on all family members, especially siblings and the school environment. Great read for 10years and up, I am 47years old and loved it. Has a feel like reading Matilda: Funny but with a moving story.

    Journalist Michael J. Mooney reveals the life story of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the American Sniper, from his Texas childhood up through his death in February 2013. A brutal warrior but a gentle father and husband, Kyle led the life of an American hero and legend. His heroism and reputation in the military service earned him the nickname "the devil" among insurgents and the nickname The Legend among his SEAL brethren, but his impact extended beyond that after he came home, through his work with fellow veterans.

    This eulogy represents an American hero and also the man behind the image. I will definitely read Chris Kyle's only book 'American Sniper' and although I'm Australian, I will have the ongoing sadness that the world lost such a lovely man.

    We know of psychopaths from chilling headlines and stories in the news and movies - from Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy to Hannibal Lecter and Dexter Morgan. As Dr. Kent Kiehl shows, psychopaths can be identified by a checklist of symptoms that includes pathological lying; lack of empathy, guilt, and remorse; grandiose sense of self-worth; manipulation; and failure to accept one’s actions. But why do psychopaths behave the way they do? Is it the result of their environment - how they were raised - or is there a genetic component to their lack of conscience?

    Jane Yellowrock is a vampire killer for hire - but other creatures of the night still need to watch their backs....When the Master of the city of New Orleans asks Jane to improve security for a future visit from a delegation of European vampires, she names an exorbitant price - and Leo is willing to pay. That’s because the European vamps want Leo’s territory, and he knows that he needs Jane to prevent a total bloodbath.

    In September 2012, a YouGov poll conducted in Britain found that the person British workers would most like as their manager was Sir Richard Branson. With over 40 years in business, Richard Branson is an inspiring pioneer of humanitarian projects and an iconic business leader. In The Virgin Way: How to Listen, Learn, Laugh and Lead, Richard shares and distils his secrets of leadership and success.

    Story

    To rewrite this book using only 6 words I would write:- 'Richard Branson, friendly joker, advertising brand.'
    Meaning, Who couldn't love the guy, his excellent accent, his funny stories and the passion he has for his people and his brands; Virgin Airlines, Virgin Records, Virgin Money, Resorts, Condoms, etc.
    I love the way he speaks nicely of Australia and how we are not a country to be forgotten or considered backward. I like the way he tries to follow the 'shalt not speak evil' and give credit where credits due. But I did get sick of him going on and on about each of his brands to such an extent I felt I was listening to ongoing advertising; which is sadly why he received 4 stars instead of 5. Would I ever buy or recommend reading any of his future books?...Yes definitely, I have read 3 of his books so far and enjoyed them all, but hearing one for the first time was even better, as I could work whilst I listened. Loved it :)

    Six months ago, the world ended. The Baugh Contagion swept across the planet. Its victims were left twitching, adrenalized cannibals that quickly became know as Junkies. Civilization crumbled as people created isolated safe havens to hide from the infected... and the possibly infected. Now, as society nears a tipping point, lives will intersect and intertwine across two days in a desolate city.

    Four groups interrelate towards the end. But that end was more like the start of a novel. Nothing really mind shattering or rememberable happened. It was a short, short story. Not bad enough for a refund, but very close.

    There are main basic food items that we already have in our home that can be used as DIY natural cleaning solutions or what's termed as green cleaning. You just have to know which of them can be used to clean what. This includes vinegar, baking soda, salt, olive oil, and other items that are discussed in Green Cleaning 101 - DIY Natural Cleaning Solutions with Vinegar and Other Frugal Resources That You Already Have. White vinegar is the most dominant ingredient throughout.

    Quick to listen to, but would be a lot better if a PDF was supplied with audio, rather than having to write manually. Half the ideas were common knowledge, but there were also some good tips. Great to keep in mind when you’re cleaning someone’s house and you run out of a product; that there is an easy substitute close by, possibly in their kitchen cupboard.

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Looking forward to this becoming a movie or TV series, with the right actors/actresses and special effects it would be a major hit :)
    If I had a chance I would have read the book none stop, but reality is...we have to work :( I love Bones character, the way his voice is read and written reminds me of Spike out of Buffy, but gorgeous. Kat / Kitten is a fresh person you can easily relate with and the author makes you want to laugh and read on. Kat's romance is heated without being over done. I love the way the story unfolds, I am now on my second book; I'm certain I'll be reading all 6 plus any future book of this series, plus the related series starting with book 1 'First Drop of Crimson'.
    Definitely a 5 star plus rating. Thank you Audible for the $4.95 1st book in a series sale, other wise I may have over looked this amazing writer.

    The Master of Natchez, Mississippi has a nasty problem on his hands. Rogue vampires - those who follow the Naturaleza and believe that humans should be nothing more than prey to be hunted - are terrorizing his city. Luckily, he knows the perfect skinwalker to call in to take back the streets. But what he doesn’t tell Jane is that there’s something different about these vamps. Something that makes them harder to kill - even for a pro like Jane.
