Over a year ago, I was so overweight my Doctor feared imminent death. My blood pressure was 225/125. It was panic stations. I had made two fundamental mistakes. One, I had ignore the silent killer signs. The other? After an accident, I had turned to food through boredom and feeling sorry for myself. I put on a vast amount of weight on top of an already big problem. I had to go buy 8XL clothing, and the tailor I used for years was virtually in tears at the sight of me being so big. My friends were reluctant to invite me out walking, I was wheezing so badly they thought I would pass out. You would see me walking around on a sunny day with an umbrella, using it as a walking stick. I didn't want to admit I had allowed myself to get to the point I actually needed a walking stick. When I say walking about - I was so bad I had to calculate if I could make it to the corner store and back. That's how bad it got - and people that knew me in the community were horrified to see me in that condition. I truly was on the tipping point. Now? A 10 mile walk wouldn't bother me. I can hammer away at boxing bags to my heart is content, do 50 lengths of the pool, you name it. As you will hear in the book, millions of people are now disabled and bedridden due to obesity. I get it - I was almost in the same boat. A year later I could row a boat for hours if I wanted to. Like other morbidly obese people, I had tried every diet under the sun and failed. Now, I'm fit again. What brought about the change? It was a realization that I had been concentrating on the wrong thing. I kicked the emotional bully into outer space, and got my life back, slowly but surely. Slowly but surely - this is not a "lose weight quick," book 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ron Herczig.

They are often times referred to as "the expendables", or the "invisible ones". The walking wounded, the broken people. The runaways. The homeless. They all come from different backgrounds; some were sexually or ritually abused as children, some born with a silver spoon in their mouth. But they all have one thing in common; they are now living on the street - and doing anything to survive. In The Dead Girls, author Brian Lee Tucker examines the lives of six different women who, having lived on the streets for far too long, have now been pushed over the edge of sanity - and have finally become what they themselves had always feared the most. Among them is Donna, the fledgling serial killer who, born with a facial deformity that made her a social outcast, now peels the faces off of beautiful girls to wear as her own; and Gina, a barfly whose tendency to be promiscuous has led her into the lair of a murderous Picasso whose art pieces are fashioned from human body parts. A nightmarish, unforgettable glimpse into the seedy, often times terrifying underbelly of our own society, The Dead Girls is a book the listener will not soon forget. 1. Language: English.

From beloved author Alice Hoffman comes the spellbinding prequel to her best seller Practical Magic. Find your magic. For the Owens family, love is a curse that began in 1620, when Maria Owens was charged with witchery for loving the wrong man. Hundreds of years later, in New York City at the cusp of the '60s, when the whole world is about to change, Susanna Owens knows that her three children are dangerously unique. Difficult Franny, with skin as pale as milk and blood-red hair; shy and beautiful Jet, who can read other people's thoughts; and charismatic Vincent, who began looking for trouble on the day he could walk. From the start, Susanna sets down rules for her children. No walking in the moonlight, no red shoes, no wearing black, no cats, no crows, no candles, no books about magic. And, most importantly, never, ever fall in love. But when her children visit their aunt Isabelle in the small Massachusetts town where the Owens family has been blamed for everything that has ever gone wrong, they uncover family secrets and begin to understand the truth of who they are. Back in New York City, each begins a risky journey as they try to escape the family curse. The Owens children cannot escape love even if they try, just as they cannot escape the pains of the human heart. The two beautiful sisters will grow up to be the revered and sometimes feared aunts in Practical Magic while Vincent, their beloved brother, will leave an unexpected legacy. Thrilling and exquisite, real and fantastical, The Rules of Magic is a story about the power of love reminding us that the only remedy for being human is to be true to yourself. 1. Language: English.
