Shopping Paradise Airport:A Typology of Airport Shoppers Based on their Motivation Olivia Wagner
A gripping tale of man versus developers that took college campuses by storm with over 400,000 copies in print. Written by best-selling novelist and award-winning film director Robert H. Lieberman, Paradise Rezoned has become a cult classic. King of the mountain - that’s Arnold Markowitz. His mountaintop home is a peaceful stretch of land covered with orchards, wild flowers, and towering trees. But there isn’t much room left for beauty these days as a land-development corporation is intent on surrounding his paradise with a sprawling shopping mall. With Markowitz taking on the powers that be, this classic tale takes unexpected twists and turns. ´´Mr. Lieberman has a sharp eye for the incongruous and the humor that can accompany desperate happenings.´´ (New York Times) ´´Paradise Rezoned has hit the jackpot in paper with sales of 300,000 in the first three months.´´ (Newsweek) 1.

Country girl Denise Baudu arrives in Paris hoping for a position in her uncle´s clothing shop. However, her uncle´s shop, along with other small shops in the area, is doing poorly. This is due to the large store across the street - The Ladies´ Paradise - which is swallowing up the small specialty stores by offering ´´one-stop shopping´´ at discounted prices. Nineteenth-century Paris is experiencing the dawn of the department store. Despite her loyalty to her uncle, Denise is drawn to the progressive Ladies´ Paradise and it´s owner, the driven but charismatic Monsieur Mouret. This book was the basis for the PBS Masterpiece Classic series, The Paradise. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lee Ann Howlett.

Audie Award Finalist, Fantasy, 2014 Another day, another apocalypse.... James Stark, aka Sandman Slim, has managed to get out of Hell, renounce his title as the new Lucifer, and settle back into life in L.A. But he also lost the Qomrama Om Ya, an all-powerful weapon from the banished older gods. Older gods who are returning and searching for their lost power. The hunt leads Stark to an abandoned shopping mall - a global shopping paradise infested with Lurkers and wretched bottom-feeding Sub Rosa families, squatters who have formed tight tribes to guard their tiny patches of retail wasteland. Somewhere in this kill zone is a dead man with the answers Stark needs. All Stark has to do is find the dead man, recover the artifact, and outwit and outrun the angry old gods - and natural-born killers - on his tail. But not even Sandman Slim is infallible, and any mistakes will cost him dearly. 1. Language: English. Narrator: MacLeod Andrews.

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.

På rundt 30 minutter får du tips om spennende bydeler, severdigheter, shopping, konsertsteder og klubber, samt hvor og hva du kan spise og drikke. I tillegg får du fakta om byens struktur og transportmuligheter, samt en historisk oversikt for de som ønsker å vite mer om hvorfor og hvordan byen er blitt slik den fremstår for oss i dag. Byguidene er delt inn i kapitler for enkel navigering. Please note: This audiobook is in Norwegian. 1. Norwegian.
