"One day I was 12 years old and broke. I set out to mow some lawns with Grandpa´s old riding mower. One client was Arnold the stockbroker, who offered to teach me about: the beauty of capitalism. Supply and demand. Diversifying labor. Distributing the wealth. ´It´s groovy, man,´ Arnold said. "The grass grew, and so did business. Arnold invested my money in many things. One of them was a prizefighter. All of a sudden I was the sponsor of my very own fighter, Joey Pow. That´s when my 12th summer got really interesting." Gary Paulsen´s comic story about a summer job becomes a slapstick lesson in business as one boy turns a mountain of grass into a mountain of cash. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Parks.

´´Summer vacation...great,´´ Margo sighed. Her girls would be going to summer camp in a couple of days, and her husband would be going out of town for business. Who was she kidding, she thought? He was going to see his mistress. Not that she minded. Their marriage was basically just a piece of paper anyway. She would have the house to herself for two weeks. ´´What to do? What to do?´´ The thought raced through her mind again. She made a list of projects to get done around the house: she needed to get her spring cleaning done. She needed to get the lawn cleaned up as well. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lucy Blue. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/fsvc/000035de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Excerpt from The Illustrated Comprehensive History of the Great Battle of Shiloh I stand upon the prostrate trunk Of that which used to grow, The pride of all the forest here, Long years, and years, and years ago. I wandered to the school-house lawn Where once the school - house stood, Where we learned to read and Spell Such lessons as we could, And where, as months and terms ¿ew by Like ¿eeting ¿akes of snow, We learned to cipher, parse, and write, Long years, and years, and years ago.

India Taylor lived in a world of manicured lawns and neatly maintained calendars: a merry-go-round of Little League, piano lessons, and Cape Cod summer vacations. With four wonderful children, India believed in Doug, the man she married 17 years before. For India, this was the promise she made, the life she had chosen - not the award-winning career as a photojournalist she once had. It was a choice she had never truly regretted. Until she begins to regret it with all her heart. India couldn´t pinpoint the exact moment. Perhaps it was the last time her agent called, begging her to take an assignment Doug insisted she turn down. Or perhaps it was when Doug told her he thought of her as a companion and someone to take care of their kids, and not much more. At that moment, the price of the sacrifices she´d made began to seem high. And then, she met Paul Ward. A Wall Street tycoon married to a best-selling author, Paul lived life on his own terms, traveling the world on his own yacht. India hadn´t planned to become Paul´s friend. Anything more was unthinkable. Yet talking to Paul was so easy. India could share her dreams with him, and offer comfort when Paul suffers a heartbreak of his own. And while Paul urges India to reclaim her career, Doug is adamantly against it, determined to keep her tied to the home. But with Paul´s encouragement, India slowly, painfully, begins to break free, and find herself again. Rediscovering her creativity and her courage, India uses Paul like a beacon on the horizon, sharing intimate phone conversations with a man half a world away, a man who never stops reminding her of all that is possible for her. India is changing, and nothing in her life will ever be the same again. Not her marriage. Not her friendship with Paul. And when India is presented with an irresistable opportunity, she makes a heart-wrenching decision, leaving a safe, familiar place to move into the terror of the unknown. 1. Language: English.

The campus of Maine´s Bowmouth College looks like a picture postcard of New England-snow-covered lawns, students in colorful ski parkas, icicles dangling on the ivied halls. Sarah Deane-English Fellow with an honorary degree in sleuthing-expects to spend a quiet term here taking some graduate courses and doing a little teaching. But then Sarah finds that someone´s organized an advanced course in murder. The first lesson comes when a woman student is found frozen into a prize-winning snow sculpture during Carnival weekend. The second is served up with a cozy cup of poisoned cocoa. And when the clues point straight to an English department already rife with rivalries, Sarah realizes that a little learning can be a very dangerous thing... 1. Language: English.
