So you think your mom is embarrassing? You won´t after you meet mine. She´s the co-host of a morning television show and her host chat has covered everything I´ve done from puking on my piano teacher´s shoes to gluing antlers on my head. But I´ve got the microphone now and I´m doing weekly commentaries on my school´s broadcast/podcast. Don´t get me wrong, mom´s awesome, and I´d never really want to freak her out. But if viewers get to hear about my private life, why can´t I dish about Mom´s new boyfriend, or how dorky she is as a school volunteer?´´Did I mention my friendships with my loud, bossy BFF and former BFFs are in total flux? And what is this thing called middle school? Definitely stay tuned. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Becca Battoe. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/lili/000912/bk_lili_000912_sample.mp3.

One morning years ago, I walked across the campus of the State Teachers College at Warrensburg, Missouri, and stopped to chat with a friend of mine - Frank Self. Little did I realize then, that that chat was to have a profound effect upon all the days of my life. If I had not met Frank Self that morning, I would probably have been a superintendent of some high school or college in the Middle West, for I had spent four years in a college for training teachers. During our talk, Frank Self told me that the previous summer he had been selling courses for the Inter-national Correspondence Schools. I was astounded when he told me that they paid him two dollars a day for hotel expenses and a commission for all courses he sold. Two dollars a day for hotel expenses! The very thought of it excited me. Two dollars a day was all I could hope to make as a teacher in some country town and out of that two dollars I would have to pay room and board. Here was a way to make money quickly! I wondered how long this kind of high finance had been going on. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jason McCoy.

An addictively listenable debut romantic comedy, drama, and mystery rolled into one, about two very different strangers whose lives become intertwined when they receive an unusual proposition. This is a funny, tender, and enchanting story about love, attraction, and friendship: Jane Austen in Los Angeles. A struggling Hollywood producer, Richard Baumbach is 29, hungover, and broke. Ridiculously handsome, with an innate charm and an air of invincibility, he still believes good things will come his way. For now he contents himself with days at the Coffee Bean and nights with his best friend, Mike (that´s a woman, by the way). At 33, Elizabeth Santiago is on track to make partner at her law firm. Known as ´´La Máquina´´ - The Machine - to her colleagues, she´s grown used to avoiding anything that might derail her quiet, orderly life. And yet recently she befriended a homeless man in her Venice neighborhood, surprised to find how much she enjoys their early morning chats. Richard and Elizabeth´s paths collide when they receive a proposal from a mysterious anonymous benefactor. They´ll split a million dollars if they agree to spend at least two hours together - just talking - every week for a year. Astonished and more than a little suspicious, they both, nevertheless, say yes. Richard needs the money and likes the adventure of it. Elizabeth embraces the challenge of shaking up her life a little more. Both agree the idea is ridiculous, but why not? What ensues is a delightful journey full of twists, revelations, hamburgers, classic literature, poppy music, and, above all, love in its multitude of forms. The Decent Proposal is a heartfelt and often hilarious look at the ties that bind not just a guy and a girl but an entire diverse cast of characters situated within a modern-day Los Angeles brought to full and irrepressible life. 1.

One warm July morning Mr Phillips climbs out of bed, leaving Mrs Phillips dozing. He prepares for his commute into the city - but this is no ordinary Wednesday. It is a day on which Mr Phillips will chat with a pornographer, stalk a tv mini-celebrity, have lunch with an aspiring record mogul, and get caught up in a bank robbery. It is, as Mr Phillips comes to realise, the first day of the rest of his life - whether he wants it to be or not. All this is both better and worse than being at work. So why is Mr Phillips, a cautious middle-aged accountant, not behind his desk calculating the financial consequences of redundancies or recommending the savings to be made from more responsible use of yellow sticky note pads?
