Henry is invited to a sleepover at his friend Patrick's house. His big, slobbering dog Mudge is invited, too. In fact, all the boys are bringing their dogs. Everyone will stay up late. Best of all, Henry says, there will be popcorn. Mudge gets very excited because popcorn is one of his favorites. When the night comes, the boys and dogs gather in Patrick's attic and have a great time. They play all kinds of games, but nobody can play with the bowling set, because a bulldog keeps stealing the pins. They eat pizza and watch a movie about giant lizards. There is still lots of popcorn to eat before everybody falls asleep. Newbery Medal winner Cynthia Rylant has sold more than two million copies of her Henry and Mudge adventures, which comprise one of the most beloved beginning reader series of all time. Each story available from Recorded Books is warmly narrated by AudioFile Golden Voice George Guidall. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George Guidall.

I love books. That's probably obvious based on the fact that I'm a librarian. But I don't just love reading books. I also love writing books. I specialize in erotic fiction - the naughtier, the better. There's only one problem - I can't write about something unless I experience it in real life. So once my day in the library is over, I got out looking for sexy situations I can write about in my books. I've got an exciting night planned tonight. One of my favorite bands is in town and I've got floor seats to the show. I love hard rock music - the louder, the better. When you spend all day surrounded by the silence of a library, the blaring noise and excitement of a rock concert is exactly what you need. And who knows? Maybe I can find some sexy fun for my next book before the night is over. I stop home to change after my shift at the library. Off goes the button down shirt, knee length pencil skirt, and sensible heels. I won't need the reading glasses tonight either. I pull the pins out of the tight bun I always wear to work and shake out my mane of long, glossy black hair. Tonight I'll leave my hair down, wear my tight denim skirt and my cut off T-shirt from the last time I saw the band in concert. I zip up a pair of knee high black leather boots and head out to the arena.This sexy librarian will rock your world and write a book about it! Don't judge a book by its cover because this librarian is hiding a secret wild side. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Devie LaRue.

We've all known someone on the Rachel Dolezal spectrum who uses downward mobility as ascension or escape. You'd rather not #AskRachel what it means to her to pass as black, but you can't turn away. Susie has many thoughts on this headline-grabbing story of a white girl who grew up with white fundamentalist missionary parents and then left them behind to live as a black activist. Then, it's "What's New on Audible". Susie has a great new audiobook to recommend for our listening pleasure: Straight: The Surprisingly Short History of Heterosexuality by Hanne Blank, narrated by Fran Tunno.

No one would call David Rose - or ‘Rosie’ as he’s known to one and all - a star, but he’s good at his job and proud of his work as a sportswriter for a national newspaper. He’s used to seeing flashier talents come and go - both on the field, and in the competitive world of the press. Football comes first in the way he spends his working life, but he’s happy to pitch in whatever the sport - from Formula 1 to Test cricket in the West Indies, the Olympics to a heavyweight championship bout in Japan. He’s used to the ups and downs of a journalist’s life and has learned to keep his own head safely down - until an especially venal boss pins his own misdemeanours on the entirely innocent Rose. Rosie’s revenge is slow but sweet, as he manoeuvres through a world where egos clash, money talks and you’re only as safe as your latest by-line. Not since Richard Ford’s classic novel, The Sportswriter, has a novel caught the world of sports journalism so vividly and so well. A marvellous listen - funny, touching and compelling. Simon Barnes was the Chief Sports Writer for The Times until 2014, having worked for the paper for 30 years, during which he covered seven Olympic Games and six World Cup finals. He writes about sports and wildlife and is the author of over 20 books, including the best-selling How to be a Bad Birdwatcher. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Colin Mace.

A compelling exploration of how reputation affects every aspect of contemporary life Reputation touches almost everything, guiding our behavior and choices in countless ways. But it is also shrouded in mystery. Why is it so powerful when the criteria by which people and things are defined as good or bad often appear to be arbitrary? Why do we care so much about how others see us that we may even do irrational and harmful things to try to influence their opinion? In this engaging book, Gloria Origgi draws on philosophy, social psychology, sociology, economics, literature, and history to offer an illuminating account of an important yet oddly neglected subject. Origgi examines the influence of the Internet and social media as well as the countless ranking systems that characterize modern society and contribute to the creation of formal and informal reputations in our social relations, in business, in politics, in academia, and even in wine. She highlights the importance of reputation to the effective functioning of the economy and e-commerce. Origgi also discusses the existential significance of our obsession with reputation, concluding that an awareness of the relationship between our reputation and our actions empowers us to better understand who we are and why we do what we do. Compellingly written and filled with surprising insights, Reputation pins down an elusive subject that affects everyone. Author bio: Gloria Origgi, a Paris-based philosopher, is a senior researcher at the Institut Jean Nicod at the National Center for Scientific Research. Her books include one on trust and another on the future of writing on the Internet. She maintains a blog in English, French, and Italian at gloriaoriggi.blogspot.com. 1. Language: English.
