Jay na Thalang is a demanding, driven genius. He doesn´t know how to stop or even slow down. The instant he lays eyes on Maria Lopez, he knows that she is a sexy distraction he can´t afford. He´s done his best to keep her at arm´s length, and he´s succeeded beyond his wildest dreams. Maria has always been cautious. Now that her once-tiny, apocalypse-centered blog is hitting the mainstream, she´s even more careful about preserving her online anonymity. She hasn´t sent so much as a picture to the commenter she´s interacted with for 18 months - not even after emails, hour-long chats, and a friendship that is slowly turning into more. Maybe one day they´ll meet and see what happens. But unbeknownst to them both, Jay is Maria´s commenter. They´ve already met. They already hate each other. And two determined enemies are about to discover that they´ve been secretly falling in love. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Xe Sands, Sean Crisden.

A full-length standalone romantic comedy from USA TODAY best-selling author R.S. Grey. ´´Oh my god. Who is that?´´ I get asked this question a lot. ´´Oh him?´´ I reply. ´´That´s just Ian.´´ Just Ian is the biggest understatement of the century. Just the Mona Lisa. Just the Taj Mahal. Just Ian, with his boring ol´ washboard abs and dime-a-dozen dimpled smile. Just Ian is...just my best friend. We´re extremely close, stuck so deep inside a Jim-and-Pam-style friendzone everyone at work assumes we´re a couple - that is until one day, word spreads through the teacher´s lounge that he´s single. Fair game. Suddenly, it´s open season on Ian. He should be reveling in all the newfound attention, but to our mutual surprise, the only attention he seems to want is mine. He´s turning our formerly innocent nightly chats into X-rated phone calls. Our playful banter sports a new, dangerous edge. I want to assume he´s playing a prank on me, just pushing my buttons like always - but when Ian lifts me onto the desk in my classroom and slides his hands up my skirt, he doesn´t leave a lot of room for confusion. I´m a little scared of things going south, of losing my best friend because I can´t keep my hands to myself. So, I´m just going to back away and not return this earth-shattering kiss - oh who am I kidding?! Goodbye Ian, ol´ buddy, ol´ pal! Helloooo mister not so nice guy. 1. Language: English.

When Fred Archer was a boy, men’s voices were deep and mellow as they rang out following the plough, or in church on Sundays; a farmer could make a living with a herd of 20 cows; and each village had its own blacksmith and wheelwright. The Cuckoo Pen recreates those days of the 1920s and ‘30s when life was so different from today. Here was a time when workers enjoyed a mutual rapport, their long days of hard work punctuated only by the turning rhythm of the seasons and the pleasure of a chat when they broke for their bait of bread and cheese. Hoeing and singling mangolds, threshing and rick-building in hot summers, or picking the famous plums of Pershore, the men felt their love of the land, and treated the all-important horses that were more friends than servants with enduring respect.Fred Archer describes with his customary sure touch and vivid language the character and tenor of rural England during the period between the wars - The Cuckoo Pen will appeal to all those with an enduring interest in country life. 1.

Here is the ultimate book on the worldwide movement of hackers, pranksters, and activists that operates under the non-name Anonymous, by the writer the Huffington Post says ´´knows all of [Anonymous´s] deepest, darkest secrets.´´ Half a dozen years ago, anthropologist Gabriella Coleman set out to study the rise of this global phenomenon just as some of its members were turning to political protest and dangerous disruption. She ended up becoming so closely connected to Anonymous that the tricky story of her inside-outside status as Anon confidante, interpreter, and erstwhile mouthpiece forms one of the themes of this witty and entirely engrossing book. The narrative brims with details unearthed from within a notoriously mysterious subculture, whose semi-legendary tricksters - such as Topiary, tflow, Anachaos, and Sabu - emerge as complex, diverse, politically and culturally sophisticated people. Propelled by years of chats and encounters with a multitude of hackers, Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy is filled with insights into the meaning of digital activism and little-understood facets of culture in the Internet age. 1.
