Tonight is the night! I get to go on my first ever date. Sure, Daniel, whom I´ve been in school with since forever, had to wait until after graduation to finally grow a pair and ask me out, but better late than never! We´re going to the movies, and dinner after. I wonder, will my date also lead to my first kiss? By the time I´m all dressed up and ready, I decide to wait on the sofa next to Jack, who is watching the game. The clock soon strikes seven, but Daniel is nowhere to be found.... Soon my doubts begin to take over and I wonder if it was all a cruel joke? Is he going to show up at all? After starting on such a high note, my hopes for the evening are in tatters. Nothing could possibly console me, except perhaps a confession by the boy I grew up with. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cheyanne Humble.

Owning a dog is a big commitment and you should know what is involved in owning your boxer and getting the most out of your relationship with him. Boxers are loving and lovable and if you treat him right, you will both have hours of pleasure together. Boxers are intelligent and full of energy so you will need good training skills to show them who is boss. Otherwise, they will be more than willing to take the lead - literally! They also need lots of exercise so don’t get a boxer if you find it hard to get up off the sofa. Look on the bright side, you will be as fit as a flea in no time and have a super-toned body and svelte silhouette. This book teaches you - not your dog, as many dog owners think - how to train your boxer with rewards rather than punishment. Your boxer wants to please you but he is begging out for guidance from a leader. He has joined your pack, not the other way round. Using consistency and firm but kind guidelines, you will make a friend for life who will always be happy to see you and love you no matter what. However, you should also be aware that boxers quite often have a shorter lifespan than some other dogs and are prone to certain diseases. This book will tell you what to look out for and what you should be asking the breeder or kennels you get your boxer from. Some diseases are inherited from their parents and a good breeder will supply you with this information. Every dog is different, but boxers do have generic traits and behavior that you can be aware of by listening to this book. Hopefully, you have bought it before you get your boxer. In any event, it will be useful in the training and care of your dog. I hope you enjoy your time together. Download your copy now! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Millian Quinteros.

For as long as he can remember, Kirk Hammett has found fascination, escape and even love within the world of horror movies. From nervous yet enthralled nights spent cowering behind the sofa as another Universal Studios horror classic played on the black and white TV, to the recent years which have seen Hammett gather one of the largest private collections of movie poster art & memorabilia in the world, Kirk´s love of the genre has never wavered. As the lead guitarist of rock superstars Metallica, Hammett has been able to indulge this passion and procure the art and artifacts from the world of fantasy and horror, which are only available to a select few. Each piece Kirk has bought holds emotional value for him, each one a memory, reminder and embodiment of a moment in time, whether as a child or today. Indeed, the collection could be interpreted as a roadmap of Hammett´s life. For this reason, Kirk has previously been highly reluctant to discuss or divulge the details of a collection of toys, posters and props, which developed a legendary reputation amongst horror enthusiasts and Metallica fans alike. Until now. Too Much Horror Business is the definitive record of his collection and the feelings attached to it. Presented in a full-colour, large format volume, the book does real justice to his treasure trove of horror. The book is augmented with a series of Q&As with Kirk, which will illuminate the story of young Hammett growing up obsessed with monster movies, his stories of collecting and the monster genre´s influence on his music. For fans of horror, Too Much Horror Business will be the ultimate journey through hundreds of unique properties and pieces that have rarely been seen. For fans of Metallica, it will be the rock & roll coffee table book that offers an intriguing and little-seen view into the mind of a horror-obsessed, superstar guitar hero.
This three-in-one short story collection contains the following: ´´Dating My Stepbrother´´: Tonight is the night! I get to go on my first ever date. Sure, Daniel, whom I´ve been in school with since forever, had to wait until after graduation to finally grow a pair and ask me out, but better late than never! We´re going to the movies and dinner after. I wonder, will my date also lead to my first kiss? By the time I´m all dressed up and ready, I decide to wait on the sofa next to Jack, who is watching the game. The clock soon strikes seven, but Daniel is nowhere to be found.... Soon my doubts begin to take over, and I wonder if it was all a cruel joke. Is he going to show up at all? After starting on such a high note, my hopes for the evening are in tatters. Nothing could possibly console me, except perhaps a confession about how he really feels about me by the boy I grew up with. ´´Stepbrother Surveillance´´: Liam, the boy I grew up with, is getting ready, and I´m well prepared and in position with my iPhone outside the bathroom window. He is completely unaware, having a shave topless in front of the mirror before taking all his clothes off his godlike body, ready for the shower, and I´m getting more and more excited. This will make a wonderful addition to my collection. And soon, in the privacy of my bedroom, I´ll let it fuel many a hard and unprotected fantasy.... I can only hope this arrangement keeps working out for me, and I don´t get caught. After all, it´s the only thing close to a sex life I have.... ´´Seducing My Stepbrother´´: When I invited Holly to join me on a visit home from college, I should have expected her to take a liking to the boy I grew up with, Bradley. What I didn´t expect was that she guessed I liked him, too. In fact, he´s the first and only guy I ever liked. It was wrong, I knew that, but she encouraged me to at least find out if the feeling was mutual. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cheyanne Humble.

At the far end of the long white gallery is a painting of woman, in pale flowing clothes and lying on a sofa beside an open window. The muslin curtains billow out towards her like clouds. There is a touch of brilliant red, the ribbon on her hat. The rest is the white, cream, palest grey. It is a painting which leads Flora on, beckoning her away from her childhood, her complaining, clinging mother, pert younger sister, and the confines of a small community, to a proud and self-reliant future. But later, its image is to prove the catalyst for the most significant event in her life. Isolation, separation, solitude, betrayal. The shocks of life. The consolations and the beauty of death. A few piercing moments of absolute joy and perfect understanding. The Service of Clouds is about these things, and also about love, loyalty, friendship, growing up, and growing old. 1.
