Learn to speak and understand your mate's love language, and in no time you will be able to effectively love and truly feel loved in return. Skillful communication is within your grasp!

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.

What made the experience of listening to Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir) the most enjoyable?

The performance of the narrator is fantastic and so is the story line.
It's funny LOL, so much so tears were flowing and a tragic story, one that is all to familiar (well somewhat). I loved it so much, I bought copies for my friends and family.

Thank you for your witty story and voice to tell this. Much appreciated.

In this bold, bracing, and tremendously practical new work of spiritual psychology, author and medium Paul Selig takes the channeled teachings begun in his acclaimed I Am the Word into dramatic new territory. In this fresh revelation, the invisible teachers who speak through Selig actually instruct readers on how to develop their own powers of intuition, clairvoyance, and inner knowing.

Would you listen to The Book of Love and Creation again? Why?

YES! YES! YES! This is exactly what I was searching for and somehow I found it or it found me! Teaching to be a better human being and reminding us, we are human, is refreshing in my opinion.

What other book might you compare The Book of Love and Creation to and why?

There is no other book I could compare this one too, it's truly unique! This book is one of a kind and a first "channel" text I have ever listened too. I must admit, it may not be for all audiences. I listen to this in small segments, as it's very deep and profound. I find myself laughing at times and saying, yes, yes, yes, I get this. Word.

What did you learn from The Book of Love and Creation that you would use in your daily life?

This written word makes me think and wonder, so for this, I am thankful.
I am more conscious of my actions, vibrations, and thankful on a daily basis.

Any additional comments?

Paul does a great job at reading his book, he is funny, gives clear visuals and articulates nicely. I just wish his first book was on audible and looking forward to book 3.

Because science has long taught us to rely on what we can see and touch, we often don't notice that our spirit, thoughts, emotions, and body are all made of energy - that everything is vibrating. As we move out of the age of technology and into the age of intuition, we need the tools to understand what it means to be a vibrational being and how our natural frequency affects us. In Frequency, Penney Peirce shows you how to feel your personal vibration and work intentionally with energy to transform your life.

Would you try another book from Penney Peirce and/or Laural Merlington?

I am thinking if this book was told by another story teller, it would be easier to
listen too. It sounds a bit robotic at times and the voice sounds a bit stiff.
However, that being said, it's an excellent, well researched and written book. I think I will buy the book and give it a read.

Insight into the spiritual healing profession of an urban Shaman. What is a Shaman? How do you become one? What functions do they perform within our modern Western world? These are some of the questions touched upon, as Shaman Gress introduces us to the ancient, but still vibrant, field of Shamanism.

I like this story, it's about her journey really, but it's a bit of history and
basic principals of Shaman practice. I found it helpful.

Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....
