It seems that ever since mankind was kicked out of the Garden of Eden for eating the forbidden fruit, we´ve been trying to get back in. Or, at least, we´ve been wondering where the garden might have been. St. Augustine had a theory, and so did medieval monks, John Calvin, and Christopher Columbus. But when Darwin´s theory of evolution permanently altered our understanding of human origins, shouldn´t the search for a literal Eden have faded away? Not so fast. In Paradise Lust, Brook Wilensky-Lanford introduces readers to the enduring modern quest to locate the Garden of Eden on Earth. It is an obsession that has consumed Mesopotamian archaeologists, German Baptist ministers, British irrigation engineers, and the first president of Boston University, among many others. These quixotic Eden seekers all started with the same brief Bible verses, but each ended up at a different spot on the globe: Florida, the North Pole, Ohio, China, and, of course, Iraq. Evocative of Tony Horwitz and Sarah Vowell, Wilensky-Lanford writes of these unusual characters and their searches with sympathy and wit. Charming, enlightening, and utterly unique, Paradise Lust is a century-spanning history that will take you to places you never imagined. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christine Marshall.

Discovering Your Sweet Spot:A Soul-searching Guide for Creating the Life You Really Want Hay House Inc. Rajiv Vij
A deeply panoramic tour of the night, from its brightest spots to the darkest skies we have left. A starry night is one of nature´s most magical wonders. Yet in our artificially lit world, three-quarters of Americans´ eyes never switch to night vision and most of us no longer experience true darkness. In The End of Night, Paul Bogard restores our awareness of the spectacularly primal, wildly dark night sky and how it has influenced the human experience across everything from science to art. From Las Vegas´ Luxor Beam - the brightest single spot on this planet - to nights so starlit the sky looks like snow, Bogard blends personal narrative, natural history, science, and history to shed light on the importance of darkness - what we´ve lost, what we still have, and what we might regain - and the simple ways we can reduce the brightness of our nights tonight. 1.

Karen was in her late 40s but kept herself up very well. She could easily compete with the young 20-something year olds out there. But, her knowledge and elegance, just the way she carried herself with confidence, made her rise above those young, tight 20-year-olds. She had been in the dominatrix business since her 20s and even though she had quite a nice list of clientele, she was always searching for more and for more ways to please her clients. Make sure you kiss every spot...I´d be insulted if you missed something. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kat Black. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/014380/bk_acx0_014380_sample.mp3.

Peter Manuel killed repeatedly, both random and targeted victims, including men, women, and children, because he enjoyed the rush. As a lifelong criminal, Manuel mainly committed property crime. That all changed when his heart was broken. The woman he´d been engaged to called off the wedding and left him, causing Peter to snap. His violence escalated then, and Peter terrorized various communities for almost two years. His cockiness had no end, and he went as far as giving a police inspector a ride while the inspector was searching for one of the teenage girls Peter had murdered. Peter toyed with the detective and advised him he thought the police were looking in the wrong spot for the girl. Ultimately, Peter´s arrogance and insatiable need for attention led to his demise; one that made him meet his own executioner as he hung from a noose on prison gallows. 1. Language: English.
