Okano, a convenience store employee with a troubled past, is but one of the many unforgettable characters found in this collection of four stories. Among the others are three boys facing a frightening lesson in mortality, a woman using garbage to fill a hole in her heart, and a nurse struggling to cope with the oft-brutal cycle of birth, life, and death. Remaining constant even as it fades in and out of view is the great Mount Fuji, one of Japan’s Three Holy Mountains. It serves as the anchor for these characters’ lives, and for Randy Taguchi’s Fujisan, an exploration of redemption, discovery, loss, and remembrance - and the eternal bond with the mystical natural powers that connect us all. 1.

Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127, Hawaii to Newark, she’s knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, and she’s flying back to New Jersey solo. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he’s dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. And a ragtag collection of thugs and psychos, not to mention the FBI, are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying. Only one other person has seen the missing photo: Stephanie Plum. Now she’s the target, and she doesn’t intend to end up in a garbage can. With the help of an FBI sketch artist, Stephanie re-creates the person in the photo. Unfortunately, the first sketch turns out to look like Tom Cruise, and the second sketch like Ashton Kutcher. Until Stephanie can improve her descriptive skills, she’ll need to watch her back. Over at the bail bonds agency, things are going from bad to worse. The bonds bus serving as Vinnie’s temporary HQ goes up in smoke. Stephanie’s wheelman, Lula, falls in love with their largest skip yet. Lifetime arch nemesis Joyce Barnhardt moves into Stephanie’s apartment. And everyone wants to know what happened in Hawaii. Morelli, Trenton’s hottest cop, isn’t talking about Hawaii. Ranger, the man of mystery, isn’t talking about Hawaii. And all Stephanie is willing to say about her Hawaiian vacation is... it’s complicated. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lorelei King.

This audiobook is a salute and celebration of the modern American worker. Generations of unrecognized heroes who wash our cars, mow our lawns, bake our bread, douse our fires, take our garbage, teach our kids, grow our food, build our houses, mend our roads, and defend our freedom. The American Dream is still there for all of them, hidden in plain sight, riddled with confusion and abandonment. In an America full of unemployment, late fees, foreclosures, bankruptcy, and loss of hope…. There are consequences. This short story collection includes some of the pale misery behind faults in the American economy. Find a cab driver who lost his way, a down and out executive who stumbles onto a Voodoo curse in New Orleans, a nurse who pays the price for rescuing a man once thought loved, and a horrific, dystopian future. Discover new hope after cancer. Follow a paratrooper to manhood as he approached the deadly ground. Help the underemployed win at a game where reality TV meets nature at the crossroads of technology. The stories in this collection contain clues, breadcrumbs dropped along a path to help you on your way. Can you find them? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pamela Hershey.

Many people enjoy collecting things. But what happens when their "collections" grow out of control? People who have a psychological disorder called hoarding may let their teddy bear collections or garbage collections take over their entire homes! Their obsessive and compulsive acquiring of junk, collectibles, and everyday items may result in their homes becoming uninhabitable. Many hoarders' homes are even condemned! Hoarding is a big problem! It is said that there are 300 million hoarders in the United States. Many people may have no idea that they live next to a hoarder. Hoarders are often embarrassed with the state their lives are in because of their illness, but they often feel helpless to stop their compulsive behaviors. Some hoarders are aware that their issues are problematic, whereas others are prone to a sort of "clutter blindness". They cannot readily see the stacks of trash and belongings that they are tripping over as they walk through their homes. Hoarding causes injuries, pest infestations, disease, and death. It makes all of the useful areas of a house completely unusable, such as the bathroom, kitchen, and bedrooms. There are many types of hoarders who collect many different types of things. Hoarders can hoard animals. Many "pack rat" hoarders even collect digital items they will never use (photo files, music, software, porn, and movies), which is not as problematic as collecting physical items. What Is Hoarding? According to UrbanDictionary.com, hoarding is defined as "to keep and collect things that may or may not have value". A person who hoards may have large collections of comic books, nostalgic items, and antiques. He or she may collect pets or animals. Or a hoarder may fill his or her house with garbage, newspapers, artwork, or even an earwax collection. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katherine Thompson.

In this riveting audio, an award-winning Canadian author delves into the gritty, gruesome details of the most notorious spree killers, school shooters, and serial killers the world has ever seen. (Hear how Edmund Kemper decapitated his mother's head, used it as a dartboard, and then cut out her voice box and placed it in the garbage disposal.) "Cold Blooded Killers is a blood-curdling collection of some of the most famous and the least known multiple-murder cases. I primarily bought this book as a source file for my own writing as I find the information to be well-informed and easy to read. The very human stories in this massive collection are filled with the tragedies of the victims' encounters with the abnormal criminals who most of us thankfully avoid in our day-to-day lives. Some very eclectic selections and some well-known cases are presented to us by a writer who is always striving to advance in his True Crime expositions. The thing I like most about this author's true-crime writing is that the victims are never forgotten and the murderers are not sensationalized but portrayed for what they really are, sociopathic cold-blooded killers." (William Cook) They will feel that their own lives are over, and aim to take as many people with them as they can. Once their killing spree is over, they most often either commit suicide, or force the police to use deadly force against them, in other words, suicide by cop. Cold Blooded Killers is a set case files, ranging from kids who killed their parent(s), to rampage spree killers, school shootings, and serial killers. This is the author's second collection. 1.

This is a short report on the amazing health and anti-aging benefits available right now to seniors who wish to postpone old age and death for as long as possible. This work is all-original and all-unique. What causes us to age? At first, that sounds like a stupid question. Aging is such an intrinsic aspect to the human condition we tend to take for granted that it...just...happens. But we live in a world of cause and effect. Aging is an effect, so what is the cause? The common way of thinking about this is from the perspective that our bodies are physical, and everything else that's physical eventually wears out or breaks down, such as our cars, our houses, and even our computers. That's known as the "wear and tear" theory of aging. But our bodies are different from such items because they're alive and, in optimum conditions of health, regenerate themselves if at all possible. Cuts heal over, broken bones knit and so on. Indeed, every day millions of our cells die in the course of performing their functions. They're simply replaced by new cells. Our bodies can even work around permanently damaged tissue, even including the brain itself. However, at a certain point, our bodies become less able to repair and regenerate. About age 40 we stop totally repairing and processing all the protein from our dead and damaged cells. Like a declining city running out of tax revenue, services such as street repair and garbage collection get further and further behind. The fear of death and the desire to live (youthfully) forever have obsessed humanity since the dawn of our species. In one way or another, we have searched for the Fountain of Youth, to become immortal - eternally young. In the last 100 to 150 years or so, the average life span of people - especially in the developed world - has increased dramatically. Credit for that goes principly to improved sanitation, antibiotics, improved care of infants and s 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Killavey.
