  • I Can Barely Take Care of Myself: Tales from a Happy Life Without Kids

    "You'll change your mind." That's what everyone says to Jen Kirkman - and countless women like her - when she confesses she doesn't plan to have children. But you know what? It's hard enough to be an adult. You have to dress yourself and pay bills and remember to buy birthday gifts. You have to drive and get annual physicals and tip for good service. Some adults take on the added burden of caring for a tiny human being with no language skills or bladder control.

    I am a HUGE fan of Jen's from her apprearances on Chelsea Lately and After Lately on E!
    Her new book was a great listen and especially refreshing as she riffs a LOT on being childless (and happy!) Her raw honesty was refreshing and hilarious. I could totally relate and I'm glad someone finally wrote on the topic. Just because you CAN do something, doesn't mean you should :)

    Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.

    Not your usual vampire fiction... Elaborate, imaginative and captivating read if you are in the mood for a serial killer thriller with complex characters and supernatural twists for good measure. Kate Mulgrew is a fantastic narrator!

    A clear-sighted revelation, a deep penetration into the world of Scientology by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the The Looming Tower, the now-classic study of al-Qaeda’s 9/11 attack. Based on more than 200 personal interviews with both current and former Scientologists - both famous and less well known - and years of archival research, Lawrence Wright uses his extraordinary investigative ability to uncover for us the inner workings of the Church of Scientology.

    Story

    A shocking expose that's not only fascinating, but very well researched. This book really leaves you wondering how Scientology can survive, now that the church's dark side has been revealed. The more members that leave (escape), the more disturbing information comes to light.

    For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris - Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut. Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives - the ones we'd like to pretend never happened - are in fact the ones that define us. In Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor.

    Where does Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This has been one of my favorite audible selections so far this year... she tells it like it is in her wacky one of kind perspective that made her blog so popular.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When she talks about her social anxiety, its candid and hilarious.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend it. She has a knack for getting into ridiculous situations on a day to day basis and sharing it in her very unique voice. This book makes you smile, snort with laughter and remember that we're all a hot mess occasionally.

    The man he knew as "Control" is dead, and the young Turks who forced him out now run the Circus. But George Smiley isn't quite ready for retirement-especially when a pretty, would-be defector surfaces with a shocking accusation: a Soviet mole has penetrated the highest level of British Intelligence. Relying only on his wits and a small, loyal cadre, Smiley recognizes the hand of Karla - his Moscow Centre nemesis - and sets a trap to catch the traitor.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Some explanation and exposition. I had to re-listen to sections based on british slang or british intelligency agency jargon. I've listened to hundreds of thrillers, some very complex and politcal but this one was a tough listen. I gave up about 5 hrs into the book. I saw the movie hoping that some of the vague aspects would be clarified but the movie wasn't that easy to follow either. I think you either get this kind of Le Carre novel or you don't. If you're looking for an easy intriguing listen, this is NOT it.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Was going to be 50 Shades of Gray but due to reviews blasting the narration will probably go with lighter fare- maybe "Guts"


    How could the performance have been better?

    Less british spy jargon or at least a little explanation here and there on some of the story's characters, "circus" terminology, etc.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointed. I knew there was a cool story there but just too much effort to figure out what was going on chapter to chapter based on the narration/heavy brit accent.

Everything is going great until Happy is assigned to design a newspaper ad recruiting participants for an experiment in the Yale Psychology Department. Happy can't resist responding to the ad himself.

    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    This was a great read for anywone who likes murder mysteries but is a little burnt out on them... This has some dark subject matter but keeps it light with a brilliant, sarcastic wit. The actor doing the reading is PERFECT for this type of thing.

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six. They were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry was thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future.

That's why more and more average Americans are becoming interested in pursuing real estate investing. How to Get Started in Real Estate Investing shows them how.
