Darkly funny and gleefully mean-spirited, Sellevision explores greed, obsession, and third-tier celebrity in the world of a fictional home-shopping network. Welcome to the troubled world of Sellevision, America´s premier retail broadcasting network. When Max Andrews, the much-loved, handsome (but lonely) and gay host of Slumber Party Sundown accidentally exposes himself in front of 60 million kids and their parents during a ´´Toys for Tots´´ segment, Sellevision faces its first big scandal. As Max fails to find a new job in television, another host, the popular and perky Peggy Jean Smythe, is receiving sinister e-mails from a stalker about her appearance. Popping pills and drinking heavily, she fails to notice that her husband is spending a lot of time with the young babysitter who lives next door. Then there´s Leigh, whose affair with Sellevision boss Howard Toast is going nowhere until she exposes him on air, and Bebe, Sellevision´s star host, who thinks she can find Mr. Right via the Internet - if she can just stop her shopping addiction from taking over. 1.

In this hope-filled approach to spiritual and personal growth, the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous are uniquely interpreted to speak to everyone seeking a freer and more God-centered life. This special rendering makes them relevant to those suffering from specific addictions - alcohol, drugs, gambling, food, sex, shopping - as well as the general addictions we wrestle with daily, such as anger, greed, and selfishness. Rami Shapiro describes his personal experience working the 12 Steps as adapted by Overeaters Anonymous and shares anecdotes from many people working the Steps in a variety of settings. Drawing on the insights and practices of Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism, and Islam, he offers supplementary practices from different religious traditions to help you move more deeply into the universal spirituality of the 12 Step system. 1.

If you’re one of the hundreds of thousands who devoured Babe Walker’s New York Times best-selling novel White Girl Problems or one of the million people who read her blog or follow her on Twitter daily, then you’ve obviously been waiting with bated breath for her hilarious follow-up novel, Psychos. Fresh from a four-month stint in rehab for her "alleged" shopping addiction, Babe Walker returns home to Bel Air 10 pounds lighter (thanks to a stomach virus), having made amends (she told a counselor with bad skin she was smart) and confronted her past (after meeting her birth mother for the first time - a fashion model turned farmer lesbian). Although delighted to be home and determined to maintain her hard-won inner peace, Babe now faces a host of outside forces seemingly intent on derailing her path to positive change. Not only is she being trailed by an anonymous stalker, but she’s also reunited with the love of her life, a relationship that she cannot seem to stop self-sabotaging. Babe’s newfound spirituality, coupled with her faith in the universe and its messages, leads her all over the world: Shoulder dancing in Paris, tripping out in Amsterdam, and hooking up in the Mediterranean, only to land her back in New York City, forced to choose between a man who is perfect in every way (except for one small detail) and a man who could be The One if only he didn’t drive Babe to utter insanity. Unapologetic and uproarious, Psychos is the send-up of the season - already as timeless as vintage Dior. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tavia Gilbert.

When it comes to you and your money, it is important to remember that your income can only go as far as you can. Do you know anybody who has ever won the lottery? Studies actually have found that people who have suddenly won or inherited large amounts of money often end up losing it all after several years - and it´s likely not a coincidence. In many of these cases, these people did not have what it takes to handle their money, mentally. Interestingly, people who have worked themselves into being millionaires can often incur financial tragedies and still manage to get back on their feet within a short period of time. Think about it - if you believe that you don´t deserve a lot of money, will you be successful in handling it? If you have a shopping addiction and you do nothing to overcome it, what will your wallet look like? Does your character reflect your income? The point is that your financial situation will often reflect who you are as a person - the more successful you are in personal growth, the more your earning potential can be. If you´re the type of person who has the ability to exert willpower and discipline when it comes to kicking bad habits, going after goals, and being honest with yourself about your finances, chances are you´ll be much more well-off financially. The key to setting yourself up for financial success is to start from within. It is very easy to dream of becoming a millionaire, living in a mansion, and driving behind the wheel of a brand new car - but first, you must prepare yourself to get all of those things. Money doesn´t grow on trees, but it does grow from desire and ambition. Think back to school when you learned about cause and effect - there is an effect for every cause - your weight is an effect of what you eat, your knowledge is an effect of your desire to learn, and your money is an effect of what you do to earn and manage it. This book has something to offer to each and every person. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christopher Shelby Slone.
