Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales. In Norse Mythology, Gaiman fashions primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds; delves into the exploits of the deities, dwarves, and giants; and culminates in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods and the rebirth of a new time and people.

I personally have been looking for guidance on budgeting, debt management and money in general and this was perfect. I have so far followed her steps and am feeling good and have started digging myself out. I feel more confident and excited about my finances than I have ever felt before. Not knowing where to start or what to do I saw this book on sale and decided to start here. I couldn't be happier that I did. Thank you Gail for your no sugar coating, pull up your socks attitude, tips and even the homework.

When the Knight Bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it's the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run - and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry's tea leaves....

I have only just started into the world of Harry Potter. I enjoyed the first book and bought the second before my credit was even up for renewal. The imagination and world building of J.K. Rowling is incredible. I would absolutely recommend this title (and the first) to anyone looking for a fantastic read that feels like a cup of hot chocolate with warm blanket and a nail biting ride all at the same time.

At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

A natural storyteller and raconteur in his own right - just listen to Paddle Your Own Canoe and Gumption - actor, comedian, carpenter, and all-around manly man Nick Offerman ( Parks and Recreation) brings his distinctive baritone and a fine-tuned comic versatility to Twain's writing. In a knockout performance, he doesn't so much as read Twain's words as he does rejoice in them, delighting in the hijinks of Tom - whom he lovingly refers to as a "great scam artist" and "true American hero".

I had reviewed this book before and had given it a four star review. But very rarely will I listen to a book twice. It's a time and a place that I like to come back to. Familiar and simple times with fantastical stories. I can understand why this is a classic.
