Snowbound. Sounds so romantic, with visions of cuddling before a roaring fire, hot chocolate spiked with brandy, and a secret elopement. Wait. What? My fiancé´s father won´t stop trying to turn our pending wedding into a three-ring media circus so he can get free publicity for his family´s Fortune 500 company. My mother has decided she´s done with All Things Wedding and asks her teacup Chihuahua for mother-of-the-bride advice. They´ve all gone certifiably mad. Then the stress from the wedding puts my mother in the hospital, I scream at my future father-in-law in front of a camera crew and the video goes viral, and the romantic wedding that started with Andrew´s grand Pride and Prejudice proposal looks less like Jane Austen and more like Dostoyevsky. So what do you do when you´re a fixer and you can´t fix something? You give up on it. Not on Andrew, silly. The wedding. Shopping for a CEO´s Wife is the 12th book in Julia Kent´s New York Times best-selling Shopping series. As Shannon and Declan enjoy their newlywed bliss, Andrew´s father wants to exploit Amanda and Andrew´s nuptials, much to Amanda´s chagrin. Can she learn to stand up to her future father-in-law and fight for what´s right? But the real question is: will Spritzy the teacup Chihuahua end up being a flower girl? 1. Language: English.

Daniel Graves is a man of many talents. He juggles his responsibilities of being a painter, a teacher, the director of The Florence Academy of Art, a husband, and a father remarkably well. He knew from the age of three or four who he wanted to be. His career launched when he was 11 years old. ´´It was an art show in a local shopping mall; I entered something and I won the first prize,´´ he says, smiling. He studied with many artists including Richard Lack, Richard Serrin, and Signorina Simi, and received regular critiques from Pietro Annigoni. He admits never to have studied with anyone for a long period of time because of the family responsibilities towards a wife and a child since the age of 21. He wants his students to be authentic, and encourages them to find their own voice. Artists who are on the ´´same team´´ as him sometimes criticize Florence Academy. His response to that is simple. ´´We need allies and not critics because what we all trying to do is extremely difficult. To make art that is beautiful is very hard.´´ 1. Language: English.

Als kleiner Junge durfte Alexander Otto seinen Vater manchmal auf Reisen in die USA begleiten. Sie schauten sich dort Shopping Malls an. Von denen war Werner Otto seit Mitte der sechziger Jahre fasziniert. Damals betrieb er schon seit fast zwei Jahrzehnten den Otto-Versand und war auf der Suche nach einer neuen Unternehmung. ´´Mein Vater war nie ein Mann für Details´´, sagt Alexander Otto heute. Werner Otto lebte für Visionen und neue Ideen. Und weil er damals die Shopping Malls für visionär hielt, stand bald auch eine in Hamburg, hinter der S-Bahn-Endhaltestelle Poppenbüttel. Sie sah fast aus wie die in Amerika. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Anna Doubek, Michael Bideller. Hörprobe: http://samples.audible.de/bk/brnd/091013/bk_brnd_091013_sample.mp3.

A History of Modern Britain confronts head-on the victory of shopping over politics. It tells the story of how the great political visions of New Jerusalem or a second Elizabethan Age, rival idealisms, came to be defeated by a culture of consumerism, celebrity and self-gratification. In each decade political leaders think they know what they are doing but find themselves confounded. Every time the British people turn out to be stroppier and harder to herd than predicted. Throughout, Britain is a country on the edge - first of invasion, then of bankruptcy, then on the vulnerable front line of the Cold War and later in the forefront of the great opening up of capital and migration now reshaping the world. This history follows all the political and economic stories but deals too with comedy, cars, the war against homosexuals, ´60s anarchists, oil men and punks, Margaret Thatcher´s wonderful good luck, political lies and the true heroes of British theatre. 1.
