Sophie Kinsella has conquered the hearts of millions with her New York Times best-selling Shopaholic novels, which feature the irresistible one-woman shopping phenomenon Becky Bloomwood. Now Becky´s back in a hilarious, heartwarming tale of married life, best friends, and long-lost sisters (and the perils of simply having to own an Angel handbag!). What´s a round-the-world honeymoon if you can´t buy the odd souvenir to ship back home? Like the Chinese urns and 20 silk dressing gowns Becky found in Hong Kong, the five kilim rugs from Turkey, the splendid hand-carved dining table (and ten chairs) from Sri Lanka, the, um, huge wooden giraffes from Malawi (that her husband Luke expressly forbade her to buy)... Only now Becky and Luke have returned home to London and Luke is furious. Two truckloads of those souvenirs have cluttered up their usually immaculate loft, and the bills for them are outrageous. Becky´s even maxed out on her second secret credit card, and she doesn´t have a new job yet! Luke insists she go on a budget. And worse: her beloved best friend Suze has found a new best friend while Becky was away. Becky´s feeling rather blue, when her parents deliver some incredible news. She has a long-lost sister! Becky is thrilled! She´s convinced her sister will be a true soulmate. They´ll go shopping together, drink cappuccinos together, have manicures together, and watch their favorite videos together. Until she meets Jessica for the first time and gets the shock of her life. Surely Becky Bloomwood´s sister can´t...hate shopping? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katherine Kellgren.

When Mina, a Kurdish student activist, plunges in flames from the top floor of Wood Green Shopping City, it’s widely assumed to be a political protest. But local reporter Rex Tracey, who knew the dead girl, doesn’t buy it. His suspicions mount when a council whistleblower meets a similarly ugly end. As he investigates, the sleuthing journalist with the chequered past and the penchant for Polish lager is sucked into a world of honour killings, corrupt officials, and clashing traditions. 1.

One Kid. One Crime. One Chance to Make Things Right. It was a bitterly cold day when Arthur T. Owens grabbed a brick and hurled it at the trash picker. Arthur had his reasons, and the brick hit the Junk Man in the arm, not the head. But none of that matters to the judge - he is ready to send Arthur to juvie for the foreseeable future. Amazingly, it´s the Junk Man himself who offers an alternative: 120 hours of community service...working for him. Arthur is given a rickety shopping cart and a list of the Seven Most Important Things: glass bottles, foil, cardboard, pieces of wood, lightbulbs, coffee cans, and mirrors. He can´t believe it - is he really supposed to rummage through people´s trash? But it isn´t long before Arthur realizes there´s more to the Junk Man than meets the eye, and the ´´trash´´ he´s collecting is being transformed into something more precious than anyone could imagine.... Inspired by the work of American folk artist James Hampton, award-winning author Shelley Pearsall has crafted an affecting and redemptive novel about discovering what shines within us all, even when life seems full of darkness. 1.

Working out her notice period in Kent Police, she has already taken a new job as a paranormal investigator to work alongside him.

How does a girl say no to that? But Tempest has a case for her to look into: There is an elevator in a nearby shopping center that has a ghost in it. The specter has shown up on a photograph, and people´s belongings have gone missing from inside the lift without anyone getting on or off. The shopping center manager wants the case solved, but will she be able to bring the spook into the daylight and reveal its true nature?

´´Hello America, it is raining men out there, in the literal sense. It truly is the end of days - I have done the count, seven trumpets are in fact blowing. The storm extends from coast to coast and even across the pond. We aren´t going to be seeing another sunrise as the population drops, and the dead come up beneath us. This is affecting all walks of life; the young and the old, the rich and the poor, it´s even dashing summer time fun for folks at amusement parks. Those trying to seek shelter at malls and other shopping centers are having no luck, there is no escaping this, and there is no end in sight. My suggestion is to stay inside, curl up with a good book, and hope for the best. Now, let´s take look at what´s happening in your neck of the woods.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Douglas W.

Henry is a man ready to spend Spring Break with his best friends and their kids in Aspen, Colorado when he gets left with the five-year-old on the plane while the others do some last minute shopping. Delayed by the weather, his friends insist Henry and the boy go on and they will catch up later. A snowstorm is brewing as the plane takes off with 44 passengers and crew headed for the ski resort. When the plane crashes at the top of a 10,000 foot mountain, Henry realizes it is a miracle that almost everyone is alive and unhurt. Deciding to stay on the plane for shelter, most of the passengers are content to await rescue. Then Henry notices a wall of snow above them and that the wreckage is directly in the avalanche path, which would throw the plane off another nearby cliff. He decides that him and the boy are taking their chances elsewhere. Having been on the mountain before, Henry knows there is a cave somewhere on the other side of the peak. He tells the others his plan and asks them to join him. Some do, some don´t. What happens next is an exciting story of survival and adventure and shows what makes a hero. 1. Language: English.

Learn about the history of the Geisha with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.Mystery and misconception surround the geisha. At first glance, she may appear to be rather average looking, heavily clad in a weighty costume and an excess of make-up. But behind this mask lies a range of artistic skills and social etiquettes of immense importance to Japanese culture past and present. The most common place to find a geisha today is in Kyoto, the former capital of Japan before Tokyo –or Edo- took over. Even so, it is rare to see a real geisha walking the streets there. There are Japanese girls who look like geisha - wearing colorful kimonos with thick obis wrapped tightly around their waist, tottering along on pairs of wooden okobo. But real geisha are more likely to be sleeping late, emerging at night to entertain well-paid and well-paying businessmen, politicians and the like. The word geisha literally means ´´a person of artistic skill”. In Kyoto, the words geiko and maiko are more commonly used. A geiko is a fully qualified geisha, while a maiko is still in training.
