Ava Gilmore has the perfect life. She’s surrounded by people who love her, she’s having sex on a regular basis, and her Coach bag collection just grew by three. The problem? She’s expected to follow in her family’s footsteps at Seduction and Snacks, working with sex toys and baked goods. Ava loves vibrators and cupcakes as much as the next person, she’d just rather play with them than sell them. With her shopping addiction reaching an all-time high and her credit card bills piling up, Ava decides to put her obsession to good use and start a fashion blog. But she has one other problem - the guy she’s having sex with has a My Little Pony addiction. While dealing with her family’s disappointment and confusion over her choices, she finds support in the unlikeliest of places - Tyler Branson. Tyler has slowly wormed his way into her bed and her heart and he refuses to leave. Tyler has his own family problems to deal with and, for the first time ever, Ava finds herself feeling bad for the annoying, immature guy and chanting ´´Friendship is magic!´´ during the sex she’d swore to stop having with him. Ava needs to get her life in order once and for all before she finds herself doing something she never wanted to do - fall in love with a Brony. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Fouhey, C. J.

BBC Radio Collection´s volumes of episodes from the radio series have been incredibly successful, and now this volume collects the best moments from the first BBC1 TV series. Enter a surreal universe where David Dickinson goes looking for weapons of mass destruction in ´´Weapons Hunt´´, the Queen sells off the royal jewels on the QVC shopping channel, and Delia Smith turns homicidal and starts cooking up the competition. Elsewhere, Anne Robinson votes off The Weakest Disciple and Professor Sam Ryan from Silent Witness joins Rolf on Animal Hospital.

Dan works at a bookstore in a deadly dull shopping mall where nothing ever happens. He´s an angsty emo-kid who sells mid-list books to mid-list people for the minimum wage. He hates his job. Rhoda has dragged her babysitting charge to the mall so she can meet her dealer and score some coke. Now the kid´s run off, and she has two hours to find him. She hates her life. Rhoda bullies Dan into helping her search, but as they explore the neon-lit corridors behind the mall, disturbing text messages lure them into the bowels of the building, where old mannequins are stored in grave-like piles and raw sewage drips off the ceiling. The only escape is down, and before long Dan and Rhoda are trapped in a service lift listening to head-splitting musak. Worst of all, the lift´s not stopping at the bottom floor. Plummeting into the earth, Dan and Rhoda enter a sinister underworld that mirrors their worst fears. Forced to complete a series of twisted tasks to find their way out, they finally emerge into the brightly lit food court, sick with relief at the banal sight of people shopping and eating. But something feels different. Why are the shoppers all pumped full of silicone? Why are the shop assistants chained to their counters? And why is a cafe called McColon´s selling lumps of bleeding meat? Just when they think they´ve made it back to the mall, they realise their nightmare has only just begun.... Sarah Lotz and Louis Greenberg met in a pub while bunking a crime seminar and, as one does at pubs, discovered a mutual interest in horror. Sarah, a crime novelist and screenwriter, was a die-hard zombie fanatic; Louis, a literary writer, editor and recovering bookseller, had studied vampire and apocalyptic fiction. Rejecting their initial plans for a vampire-vs-zombie faceoff, they decided to write the first mainstream South African horror novel together and S.L. Grey was born. Sarah also writes the Deadlands series of zombie novels for young adults with ... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ingeborg Riedmaier, Denver Isaac.

For millions, the daily shopping experience has devolved from the resonant personal ritual of our memories and dreams to the boring zombie-like process we wander through daily. We´re wasting our time and money, at the cost of our patience, good will, and joie de vivre. The new entitlement of discount prices has driven out creative, customer-centric thinking, far more than is commonly believed. In Shopportunity!, highly respected business strategist Kate Newlin provides an insider´s view of how consumers´ needs and wants are researched, identified, and responded to at the manufacturing and marketing level of companies, and then systematically ignored by those same manufacturers and their retailers when it comes time to bring brands to market. Indeed, she demonstrates how one generation of marketers has addicted three generations of consumers to the heroin of price promotion and what it means to our waistlines, credit ratings, and life experience. From Wal-Mart to Shop-Rite to CVS and Home Shopping Network, Newlin will reveal what the world´s leading brands really know about us and how they ultimately sell the products we buy. Drawing on powerful reporting and her three decades as an insider, Newlin traces the tragic arc of the great freefall between what consumers want of their brand choices, what brands are able to deliver, and the torture retailers put consumers through in order to acquire the transformational promise of the brands. Her critique culminates in a shopper´s bill of rights that lays out 10 principles of consumer transformation that should liberate shoppers, as well as the manufacturers and channels that serve them, from the tyranny of the cheap. 1.

This new model of human interaction has been chosen by Google to train the entire company worldwide (30,000 employees), is the #1 book for your career chosen by The Wall Street Journal´s website, and is labeled ´´phenomenal´´ by Lawyers´ Weekly and ´´brilliant´´ by Liza Oz of the Oprah network. Based on more than 20 years of research and practice among 30,000 people in 45 countries, Getting More concludes that finding and valuing the other party´s emotions and perceptions creates far more value than the conventional wisdom of power and logic. It is intended to provide better agreements for everyone no matter what they negotiate - from jobs to kids to billion dollar deals to shopping. The book, a New York Times bestseller and #1 Wall Street Journal business best seller, is based on Professor Stuart Diamond´s award-winning course at the Wharton Business School, where the course has been the most popular over 13 years. It challenges the conventional wisdom on every page, from ´´win-win´´ to BATNA to rationality to the use of power. Companies have made billions of dollars so far using his new model and parents have gotten their 4-year-olds to willingly brush their teeth and go to bed. Prof. Diamond draws from his experience as a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist at The New York Times, Harvard-trained attorney, Wharton MBA, U.N. Consultant in many countries and manager and executive in many sectors, including technology, agriculture, medical services, finance, energy and aviation. ´´The ROI from reading Getting More will make it the best investment you make this year,´´ says Rhys Dekle, the business development head of the Microsoft Games division, which produces X-Box. He added that the book was his team´s best investment of the year too. The model was also used to quickly solve the 2008 Hollywood Writer´s Strike. The advice is addressed through the insightful stories of more than 400 people who have used Prof. Diamond´s tools with great success: A 20% savings on an item already on sale. An extra $300 million profit in a business. A woman from India getting out of her own arranged marriage. Better relationships with the family, including teenagers. Raises at work. Better jobs. Dealing with emotional situations. Meeting one´s goals. Finding better things to trade. Solving cultural and political problems, sports conflicts, and ordinary arguments. The book is intended to be used in any situation. The most common response is ´´life changing´´, beginning on page one. ´´The most inspirational book I have read this year´´ said David Simon, an attorney in San Francisco, CA. ´´This book can change the world,´´ says Craig Silverman, Investment Advisor, Long Island, NY
