The bottoms of her eyes drifted to the left, as did her hair. This effect made her look sly. It was not a look she had coifed or sought out. It was the look she was born with. True, she could have combed her hair differently to lessen the effect. If she had combed her hair at all, it would have lessened the effect. Because she looked sly, people thought Capri knew things, even when she did not. Most people thought she was called Capri as short for Capricious. Actually, it was because her mother was color-blind and thought her red hair was capri, or deep sky blue. Actually, her hair was scarlet with touches of vermilion. However, people thinking that Capri knew much more than she actually did eventually got her into trouble... the day a Dinosaur lumbered into their town. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chase A.

Why fit in when you were born to stand out? When a storm separates a young eagle from his family, he takes up residence with a group of chickens. Poking fun at his crooked beak, the way he flaps his wings, and his white feathered head, the eagle is ashamed and embarrassed. Soon, he discovers even more differences. Unlike the frightened chickens, he does not fear the sly fox. While the chickens are happy to live on the ground, he yearns to fly. Although the rooster insists that he was born to keep his feet on the ground, the sight of two soaring eagles changes everything. From this delightful tale listeners learn to reach out for their full potential and let their spirits fly. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carl Sommer.

From the instant number one New York Times best-selling author of the ´´eerie and fascinating” (USA Today) The Thirteenth Tale comes a richly imagined, powerful new novel about how we explain the world to ourselves, ourselves to others, and the meaning of our lives in a universe that remains impenetrably mysterious.A body always tells a story - but this child’s was a blank page.Rita reached for the lantern on its hook. She trained its light on the child’s face.´´Who are you?´´ she murmured, but the face said as little as the rest of her. It was impossible to tell whether, in life, these blunt and unfinished features had borne the imprint of prettiness, timid watchfulness, or sly mischief. If there had once been curiosity or placidity or impatience here, life had not had time to etch it into permanence.Only a very short time ago - two hours or not much more - the body and soul of this little girl had still been securely attached. At this thought, and despite all her training, all her experience, Rita found herself suddenly in the grip of a storm of feeling. All the old rage at God - for not being kind, for not being fair, and finally for just not being - swept her up all over again and she felt tears of anger on her face. She took the child’s hand in hers - the perfect hand with its five perfect fingers and their perfect fingernails - and the words fell out of her that she had not known were there:´´It should not be so! It should not be so!´´And that is when it happened. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Juliet Stevenson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/sans/008968/bk_sans_008968_sample.mp3.

Motherlunge is an eloquent and irreverent debut audiobook about first sex, true love, chronic sibling rivalry; it´s about the deepest fear of young (and not-so-young) adulthood: the fear of inheriting a disappointing life. It´s motherly advice, too - featuring wigs, dogs, road trips, and medicine - a guide to the essential experiences of being female, ´´born unto a librarian, named for the goddess of sight´´, waiting for the future to arrive. With sly wit and surprising joy, Motherlunge considers the flaws in the family line and celebrates the promise that staggers alongside. Funny and smart…in Thea and those around her Scott has created characters we believe in and wish well, characters who feel real - strange and sad and happy, like real people are. 1.

Conway is a creative genius. (Martin Gardner) An unabashed original, John Horton Conway is Archimedes, Mick Jagger, Salvador Dali, and Richard Feynman all rolled into one - a singular mathematician with a rock star´s charisma, a sly sense of humor, a polymath´s promiscuous curiosity, and a burning desire to explain everything about the world to everyone in it. Born in Liverpool in 1937, Conway found fame as a barefoot Cambridge professor. He discovered the Conway groups in mathematical symmetry and invented the aptly named surreal numbers as well as the cult classic Game of Life - more than a cool fad, Life demonstrates how simplicity generates complexity, and the game provides an analogy for all mathematics and the entire universe. Moving to Princeton in 1987, as a mathemagician he deployed cards, ropes, dice, coat hangers, and even the odd Slinky as props to extend his winning imagination and share his mathy obsessions with signature contagion. He is a jet-setting ambassador at large for the beauties of all things mathematical. Genius at Play is an intimate investigation into the mind of an endearing genius, laying bare Conway´s personal and professional idiosyncrasies. The intimacy comes courtesy of the man himself. He generously granted Roberts full access, though not without the occasional grudge and grumble: ´´Oh hell,´´ he´d say. ´´You´re not going to put that in the book. Are you?´´ PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English.

It is the last decade of the 19th century. The Wild West has been tamed and its fierce, independent and often violent larger-than-life figures – gun-toting wanderers, trappers, prospectors, Indian fighters, cowboys, and lawmen –are now victims of their own success. They are heroes who’ve outlived their usefulness. But then gold is discovered in Alaska and the adjacent Canadian Klondike and a new frontier suddenly looms - an immense unexplored territory filled with frozen waterways, dark spruce forests, and towering mountains capped by glistening layers of snow and ice. ´´Klondicitis,” a giddy mix of greed and lust for adventure, ignites a stampede. Fleeing the depths of a worldwide economic depression and driven by starry-eyed visions of vast wealth, tens of thousands rush northward. Joining this throng of greenhorns and grifters, whores and highwaymen, sourdoughs and seers are three unforgettable men. In a true-life tale that rivets from the first page, we meet Charlie Siringo, a top-hand sharp-shooting cowboy who, after futilely trying to settle down with his new bride, becomes one of the Pinkerton Detective Agency’s shrewdest; George Carmack, a California-born American Marine who’s adopted by an Indian tribe, raises a family with a Taglish squaw, makes the discovery that starts off the Yukon Gold Rush – and becomes fabulously rich; and Soapy Smith, a sly and inventive predator-conman who rules a vast criminal empire. As we follow this trio’s lives, we’re led inexorably into a perplexing mystery. A fortune in gold bars has somehow been stolen from the fortress-like Treadwell Mine in Juneau, Alaska, with no clues as to how the thieves made off with such an immensely heavy cargo. To many it appears that the crime will never be solved. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John H. Mayer. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rand/002595/bk_rand_002595_sample.mp3.
