Part travel journal but mostly spiritual guide, Finding Jesus in Israel takes an unvarnished look at the Holy Land with an off-the-bus peek into the people and places that make Israel such an amazing destination. We are shaped and transformed by the oceans we sail, the deserts, mountains, and valleys we wander, and the people we meet along the way. And as any traveler worth his salt knows, the real trip happens within. Most Israel books are presented with a political, theological, or social agenda. Some are simply tourist guidebooks. Finding Jesus in Israel isn't driven by agenda but rather it is a traveler's journey - a book for travel veterans, people with wanderlust, or individuals who just love a good story. 1.

The Magic Pudding is a pie except when it’s something else, like a steak or a jam donut or an apple dumpling or whatever its owner wants it to be. And it never runs out. No matter how many slices you cut, there’s always something left over. It’s magic. But The Magic Pudding is also alive. It walks and it talks, and it’s got a personality like no other. A meaner, sulkier, snider, snarlinger pudding you’ve never met. So Bunyip Bluegum (the koala bear) finds out when he joins Barnacle Bill (the sailor) and Sam Sawnoff (the penguin bold) as a member of the Noble Society of Pudding Owners, whose "members are required to wander along the roads, indulgin' in conversation, song and story, and eatin' at regular intervals from the Pudding". Wild and woolly, funny and outrageously fun, The Magic Pudding stands somewhere between Alice in Wonderland and The Stinky Cheese Man as one of the craziest books ever written for young readers. 1.

For Rick, life is a maze full of dead ends.

Spencer Murphy is a national treasure. A famous correspondent during the Vietnam War who escaped captivity in Southeast Asia, he made a fortune off of his books and television appearances. But Spence is growing forgetful with age; he's started to wander and even fails to come home one night. When a body is discovered at Step Above, the sprawling Murphy house near Steps Beach, Nantucket police detective Meredith Folger is called in to investigate. The timing couldn't be worse: It's the Fourth of July, Merry's planning her wedding to cranberry farmer Peter Mason, and her new police chief is gunning for her job. Merry is inclined to call the death at Step Above a tragic accident until another member of the Murphy clan comes to a brutal end. As Merry grapples with a family of unreliable storytellers - some incapable of recalling the past and others determined that it never be known - she suspects that the truth may be forever out of reach, trapped in the failing brain of a man whose whole life may be a lie. 1.

Chris works as a librarian in a small-town library in the south of England. This is the story of the library, its staff, and the fascinating group of people who use the library on a regular basis. We'll meet characters like the street sleepers Brewer, Wolf and Spencer, who are always the first through the doors. The Mad Hatter, an elderly man who scurries around manically, searching for books. Sons of Anarchy Alan, a young Down's syndrome man addicted to the American TV drama series. Startled Stewart, a gay man with a spray-on tan who pops in most days for a nice chat, sharking for good-looking foreign language students. And Trish, who is relentlessly cheerful and always dressed in pink - she has never married, but the marital status of everybody she meets is of huge interest to her. Some of the characters' stories are tragic, some are amusing, some are genuinely surreal, but together they will paint a bigger picture of the world we live in today and of a library's hugely important place within it. Yes, of course, people come in to borrow books, but the library is also the equivalent of the village pump. It's one of the few places left where anyone, regardless of age or income or background, can wander in and find somebody to listen to their concerns, to share the time of day. Reading Allowed will provide us with a fascinating portrait of a place that we all value and cherish but which few of us truly know very much about. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Thorpe.

For Eric Travis, hiking the Pacific Crest Trail was not about hiking. It was about mentally developing himself through audiobooks. Over the 156-day and 2,500 plus mile journey, Travis completed 71 audiobooks - including books on religion, history, personal development, and literary classics - all of which expanded his knowledge, cultural awareness, and business acumen.We often view learning as a chore. It requires dedicating time and effort. Learning is frequently inspired by a desire to perform well on tests and earn degrees, not by a desire to learn. After these test scores and degrees are attained, we tend to forget what we’ve learned because our incentive to remember has already been achieved.Releasing exclusively as an audiobook, Wander Purposefully: A Reflection on How to Love Learning introduces the listener to “absorbent learning” - a practical lifestyle that encourages and inspires learning for the sake of learning. Travis welcomes you - the listener, and learner - to envision and apply his absorbent learning techniques within your existing daily routines. Many of his techniques hide in plain sight and require minimal effort. The three types of absorbent learning - auditory, visual, and experiential - define a new learning lifestyle that benefits not only the learners, but also their surrounding communities and ultimately the world at large. 1.
