There is nothing quite like old-fashioned and pure romance, especially when it happens in a book that is well written featuring likeable and charismatic characters. I confess to enjoying rich, glamorous, dishy novels filled with cold and calculating characters from time to time. So I took a decision to publish my own book¿ There are many characters in this modern fairytale, but one major one seems to be Anna, a spoiled, beautiful party girl. She is not yet famous, except for the fact that she has grown up in a privileged family, is addicted to shopping, and hangs out in clubs regularly. She is one of those people that everyone is drawn to. She has style, but has a bad habit of hanging out with guys who are bad for her. One day she is approached by unknown prince, a gorgeous socialite who¿ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Winta Haile. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/012246/bk_acx0_012246_sample.mp3.

Rome is the capital and largest city of Italy and of the Lazio region. It´s the famed city of the Roman Empire, the Seven Hills, La Dolce Vita (sweet life), the Vatican City, and Three Coins in the Fountain. Rome, as a millennium-long center of power, culture and religion, having been the center of one of the globe´s greatest civilizations ever, has exerted a huge influence over the world in its 2,500 years of existence. The Historic Center of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With wonderful palaces, millennium-old churches and basilicas, grand romantic ruins, opulent monuments, ornate statues, and graceful fountains, Rome has an immensely rich historical heritage and cosmopolitan atmosphere, making it one of Europe´s and the world´s most visited, famous, influential, and beautiful capitals. Today, Rome has a growing nightlife scene and is also seen as a shopping heaven, being regarded as one of the fashion capitals of the world (some of Italy´s oldest jewelry and clothing establishments were founded in the city). With so many sights and things to do, Rome can truly be classified a "global city". Rome has a Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. In the winter months, daytime temperatures are usually pleasant and range from 10-15 degrees Celsius, while nighttime temperatures tend to stay slightly above freezing. That being said, the occasional cold snap can cause temperatures to fall below freezing, and it is not unheard of for light flurries of snow to fall on occasion, though accumulation is rare, and major snowstorms are known to occur only once every 20-25 years. 1.

Whenever you hear about St. Barts, it is usually in connection with which celebrities are partying there. It is definitely known as the island of the stars. Why is that? Well, it may be because of the island´s pristine beauty. And while it is small - only eight square miles - there are a lot of hills, inlets, coves, beaches, and tropical landscapes packed into that space. Driving around the island, wherever you go, the villages are neat, the houses are well tended, roads are good (although narrow and winding), and even the cemeteries are beautiful. Then there are the hotels and villas. The hotels have been carefully planned to be small and precious, with emphases on exquisite service and guaranteed privacy. Luxurious private villas outnumber the available hotel rooms and overlook the sparkling turquoise sea. The villas are self-contained residences with waitstaff, pools, Jacuzzis, and home theaters, ideal for hiding from crowds of admirers and paparazzi. But wait, there are also the restaurants. The French heritage shines through loud and clear, and the island´s fusion of French and Creole cuisines is offered in gorgeous settings. Even the plentiful beach restaurants turn typical barbecue and burger fare into gourmet experiences. But the choices also include American favorites. After all, this is St. Barts, and the watchword is: ´´You want it? You got it.´´ With its long history as a duty-free port, you know there are bargains to be had. Shops in Gustavia and St. Jean offer couture clothing, accessories, jewelry, and more. This is Parisian shopping in paradise. There´s no doubt that a big part of the allure of the island comes from what the island does not have: flashy casinos, high-rise hotels, and crowded beaches. The real draw of St. Barts, whether you are rich or poor, is the chance to enjoy the ambiance and character of France in a tropical setting. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve Ryan.

Meet Balram Halwal, the ´White Tiger´: servant, philosopher, entrepreneur, murderer. Over the course of seven nights, by the scattered light of a preposterous chandelier, Balram tells his story.... Born in a village in the dark heart of India, the son of a rickshaw puller, Balram is taken out of school by his family and put to work in a tea shop. As he crushes coal and wipes tables, he nurses a dream of escape, of breaking away from the banks of Mother Ganga, into whose murky depths have seeped the remains of a hundred generations. His big chance comes when a rich village landlord hires him as a chauffeur for his son, his daughter-in-law, and their two Pomeranian dogs. From behind the wheel of a Honda, Balram first sees Delhi. .The city is a revelation. Amid the cockroaches and call centres, the 36,000,004 gods, the slums, the shopping malls and the crippling traffic jams, Balram´s reeducation begins. Caught between his instinct to be a loyal son and servant and his desire to better himself, he learns of a new morality at the heart of a new India. As the other servants flick through the pages of Murder Weekly, Balram begins to see how the tiger might escape his cage. For surely any successful man must spill a little blood on his way to the top. The White Tiger is a tale of two Indias. Balram´s journey from the darkness of village life to the light of entrepreneurial success is utterly amoral, brilliantly irreverent, deeply endearing and altogether unforgettable. 1.

More than money, power, and even happiness, silence has become the most precious and dwindling commodity of our modern world.Between iPods, music-blasting restaurants, earsplitting sports stadiums, and endless air and road traffic, the place for quiet in our lives grows smaller by the day. In Pursuit of Silence gives context to our increasingly desperate sense that noise pollution is, in a very real way, an environmental catastrophe.Listening to doctors, neuroscientists, acoustical engineers, monks, activists, educators, marketers, and aggrieved citizens, George Prochnikexamines why we began to be so loud as a society, and what it is that gets lost when we can no longer find quiet. He shows us the benefits of decluttering our sonic world.As Prochnik travels across the United States and overseas, we meet a rich cast of characters: an idealistic architect who is pioneering a new kind of silent architecture in collaboration with the Deaf community at Gallaudet University; a special operations soldier in Afghanistan (and former guitarist with Nirvana) who places silence at the heart of survival in war; a sound designer for shopping malls who ensures that the stores we visit never stop their auditory seductions; and a group of commuters who successfully revolted against piped-in music in Grand Central Station.A brilliant, far-reaching exploration of the frontiers of noise and silence, and the growing war between them, In Pursuit of Silence is an important book that will appeal to fans of Michael Pollan and Daniel Gilbert. 1.
