As a believer, you know that your faith is the single strongest attribute you possess. Your level of ´´faith” is best defined as your ability to ´´perceive, or your perception” of what is going on ´´in” and ´´around” you. For over 2,000 years, the greatest mystery concerning mankind has been lying exposed in plain-sight, but no one has clearly seen it, nor shared its importance, until now. During the last two years, Scott Schang has drawn back the veil of deception and fully exposed the reason why any believer is being held back in life. You are powerless to become everything God has designed you to be until ´´you know who you are.” The key is found in what is waiting to be released from within you, not given to you. Like Jesus, once your mind completely comprehends your ´´True Identity (tm),” your destiny will flow like a river, revealing who you are - and from this, your purpose in life comes into perfect focus. You have been created for greatness, and now it’s your time to be the ´´stunning masterpiece” that lay ready for discovery. Each of us is a beautiful ´´new” creation, but without this revelation becoming part of us, we are unable to live in the fullness God designed for our lives. Scott Schang has provided the way for you to ´´jump-start” and ´´accelerate” your life as a ´´born-again believer”. Just imagine putting an end to all the ´´stuff” that has been holding your life in neutral. You are the truest expression, since time began, of God’s love on the face of this earth. His plan, for all His creation, has been moving toward this point in time. Once-and-for-all, everything you need to move your life from where you are now and into the things of your dreams... is right here. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Schang.

Mrs. Brisbane is missing! Humphrey has always investigated things, like why Speak-Up-Sayeh was so quiet and Tall-Paul and Small-Paul didn´t get along, but this is a true mystery - Mrs. Brisbane is missing! She just didn´t show up in Room 26 one morning and no one told Humphrey why. The class has a substitute teacher, called Mr. E., but he´s no Mrs. Brisbane. Humphrey has just learned about Sherlock Holmes, so he vows to be just as SMART-SMART-SMART about collecting clues and following leads to solve the mystery of Mrs. Brisbane (and a few others along the way). Winter According to Humphrey: It’s the HAPPY-HAPPY-HAPPY holidays! The holidays are coming and Humphrey is unsqueakably excited. He loves to hear about all the different ways his friends in Room 26 celebrate and to watch them make costumes and learn songs for the Winter Wonderland pageant. (He even squeaks along!)

In the new novel by the number-one New York Times best-selling ´´queen of paranormal romance´´, a wounded warrior and a woman on the run find salvation, passion, and unimaginable danger in the ghostly darkness of the Carpathian Mountains. He wasn´t civilized or tame. He had his own code, and he lived by it. Monk. Bounty hunter. Vampire slayer. Andre Boroi has spent centuries battling the undead, holding out against the dark with honor. But now, gravely wounded by master vampire Costin Popescu, Andre will be easy to track - his spilled blood marking the killing trail for Popescu and his hungry band of underlings. Andre´s only chance is to disappear into the gray mist of the Carpathians. To wait. To hope. She had a healing touch and a scent that was his lifeblood. In the mountains in search of a precious crystal, geologist Teagan Joanes suddenly finds herself hunted by those she once trusted. Then she comes across the warrior - wounded, wanting, and irresistible. Andre has been craving her for an eternity: his lifemate. Her warmth envelops him. Her scent pulsates. And with every beat of her heart, Teagan surrenders to a passion she can´t possibly comprehend. Now they are bound by destiny, but is it enough to keep them safe from a stalking, relentless darkness that threatens to swallow them alive? 1. Language: English.

There’s never been a better time to be a woman. We live in an era when girls are told they can do anything. So why aren’t we seeing more women rising to the top ranks of corporations and the government? Why don’t our girls have more women in leadership roles to look up to? Women Who Don’t Wait in Line is an urgent wake-up call from politico and activist Reshma Saujani. The former New York City Deputy Public Advocate and founder of the national nonprofit Girls Who Code argues that aversion to risk and failure is the final hurdle holding women back in the workplace. Saujani advocates a new model of female leadership based on sponsorship - where women encourage each other to compete, take risks, embrace failure, and lift each other up personally and professionally. Woven throughout the book are lessons and stories from accomplished women like Susan Lyne, Randi Zuckerberg, Mika Brzezinski, and Anne-Marie Slaughter, who have faced roadblocks and overcome them by forging new paths, being unapologetically ambitious, and never taking no for an answer. Listeners are also offered a glimpse into Saujani’s personal story, including her immigrant upbringing and the insights she gleaned from running a spirited campaign for US Congress in 2010. Above all else, Women Who Don’t Wait in Line is an inspiring call from a woman who is still deep in the trenches. Saujani aims to ignite her fellow women - and enlist them in remaking America. 1.

Travel 30 miles north, south, or east of San Francisco city hall and you´ll be engulfed in a landscape of thick traffic, fast enterprise, and $6 cappuccinos. Venture 30 miles due west, however, and you will find yourself on what is virtually another planet: a spooky cluster of rocky islands called the Farallones. Journalist Susan Casey was in her living room when she first glimpsed this strange place and its resident sharks, their dark fins swirling around a tiny boat in a documentary. These great whites were the alphas among alphas, the narrator said, some of them topping 18 feet in length, and each fall they congregated here off the northern California coast. That so many of these magnificent and elusive animals lived in the 415 area code, crisscrossing each other under the surface like jets stacked in a holding pattern, seemed stunningly improbable and irresistible. Casey knew she had to see them for herself. Within a matter of months she was in a 17-foot Boston Whaler, being hoisted up a cliff to face onto the barren surface of Southeast Farallon Island, part of the group known to 19th-century sailors as the ´´Devil´s Teeth´´. There she joined the two biologists who study the sharks, bunking down in the island´s one habitable building, a haunted, 120-year-old house spackled with lichen and gull guano. Less than 48 hours later she had her first encounter with the famous, terrifying jaws and was instantly hooked. Curiosity yielded to obsession, and when the opportunity arose to return for a longer stay she jumped at it. But as Casey readied herself for shark season, she had no way of preparing for what she would find among the dangerous, forgotten islands. The Devil´s Teeth offers a rare glimpse into the lives of nature´s most mysterious predators, and of those who follow them. Here is a vivid dispatch from an otherworldly outpost, a story of crossing the boundary between society and an untamed place where humans are neither wanted nor ... 1. Language: English.
