    In the summer of 1974, a 14-year-old girl in Dolton, Illinois, had a dream - a dream to become an actress. But it was a long way from the South Side of Chicago to Hollywood, and it didn’t help that she’d recently dropped out of the school play, The Ugly Duckling, or that the Hollywood casting directors she wrote to replied that "professional training was a requirement". But the funny thing is, it all came true....

  • How Starbucks Saved My Life: A Son of Privilege Learns to Live Like Everyone Else

    Story
    (56)

    In his 50s, Michael Gates Gill had it all: a big house in the suburbs, a loving family, and a top job at an ad agency with a six-figure salary. By the time he turned 60, he had lost everything except his Ivy League education and his sense of entitlement. First, he was downsized at work. Next, an affair ended his 20-year marriage. Then, he was diagnosed with a slow-growing brain tumor, prognosis undetermined. Around the same time, his girlfriend gave birth to a son.

    Story
    Would you listen to How Starbucks Saved My Life again? Why?

    Yes because it was inspiring how someone who had "everything" found more happiness on having less with much more satisfaction.


    What about Dylan Baker’s performance did you like?

    It was easy to listen to. So many audio books get people to read them and they are HORRIBLE!! This was not the case with this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Really enjoyed listening to it and learned a lot about Starbucks too!

  • Opening the Door of Your Heart: And Other Buddhist Tales of Happiness

    Story
    (199)

    During his wanderings and work over the last 30 years as a Buddhist monk, Ajahn Brahm has gathered many poignant, funny and profound stories. While traditional Buddhist philosophy is at the heart of this collection, these thoughtful stories are written like playful parables, which are used to launch into a deeper exploration of subjects such as mindfulness, suffering, forgiveness, hope, wisdom, and unconditional love.

    Story

    Valerie Wyatt is the queen of gracious living and the arbiter of taste with a successful TV show. Since her long-ago divorce, she’s worked hard to reach the pinnacle of her profession and to create a camera-ready life in her Fifth Avenue penthouse. So why is she so depressed? All the hours with her personal trainer, the careful work of New York’s best hairdressers, cosmetic surgeons, and her own God-given bone structure and great looks can’t fudge the truth or her lies about it: Valerie is turning sixty.

    Jan says: "Enjoyed story narrator shocking"
    "Absolutely Awesome!"
    Overall

    I have never read a Danielle Steele book in my life and this book hooked me. I didn't want it to end and wished there would be a sequel. A definite read.
