The beloved and best-selling author of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings reads aloud from her third book of verse. She not only gives life to many of her most cherished poems, but she also presents personal introductions to several favorites, including "One More Round", "Woman Work", and "Life Doesn't Frighten Me".

There is no magic pill. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to your problems. There is no guru coming to save you. The remarkable truth you are about to discover - one that you already know deep down in your bones - is that the idea of perfection can't bring you the joy, passion, and purpose you are craving. What you are looking for, as author and Women for One founder Kelly McNelis will show you, is your messy truth. It's the part of you that's perfectly imperfect and that contains your wholeness: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Not a huge fan of how she seemed to look down on anyone who believes in a Higher Power.

Based upon the graphic novels by Joe Harris - with creative direction from series creator Chris Carter - and adapted specifically for the audio format by aural auteur Dirk Maggs ( The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Alien: Out of the Shadows), Cold Cases marks yet another thrilling addition to the pantheon of X-Files stories. Featuring a mind-blowing and otherworldly soundscape of liquefying aliens, hissing creatures, and humming spacecraft, listeners get to experience the duo's investigations like never before.

Original actors. Good storyline. X-Files. What more could you ask for? Only a longer book.

When Carrie Fisher recently discovered the journals she kept during the filming of the first Star Wars movie, she was astonished to see what they had preserved—plaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naiveté, and a vulnerability that she barely recognized. Today, her fame as an author, actress, and pop-culture icon is indisputable, but in 1977, Carrie Fisher was just a teenager with an all-consuming crush on her costar, Harrison Ford.

Hearing Carrie Fisher read her own book is beyond amazing. She is so real. Nothing pretentious about her. Hearing her refer to her own death is surreal.
