This is the Discworld's last continent, a completely separate creation. It's hot. It's dry...very dry. There was this thing once called The Wet, which no one believes in. Practically everything that's not poisonous is venomous. But it's the best bloody place in the world, all right? And it'll die in a few days, except.... Who is this hero striding across the red desert? Champion sheep shearer, horse rider, road warrior, beer drinker, bush ranger and someone who'll even eat a Meat Pie Floater when he's sober? A man in a hat whose luggage follows him on little legs, who's about to change history by preventing a swagman stealing a jumbuck by a billabong? Yes...all this place has between itself and wind-blown doom is Rincewind, the inept wizard who can't even spell wizard. Still...no worries, eh? Also, Terry Pratchett would like it to be known that The Last Continent is not a book about Australia. It's just vaguely Australian. Please note: This is a vintage recording. The audio quality may not be up to modern day standards.

Named One of the Best Books of 2020 by NPR, The Financial Times, and GQ The hidden story of the wanton slaughter - in Indonesia, Latin America, and around the world - backed by the United States. In 1965, the US government helped the Indonesian military kill approximately one million innocent civilians. This was one of the most important turning points of the 20th century, eliminating the largest communist party outside China and the Soviet Union and inspiring copycat terror programs in faraway countries like Brazil and Chile. But these events remain widely overlooked, precisely because the CIA's secret interventions were so successful. In this bold and comprehensive new history, Vincent Bevins builds on his incisive reporting for the Washington Post, using recently declassified documents, archival research, and eye-witness testimony collected across 12 countries to reveal a shocking legacy that spans the globe. For decades, it's been believed that parts of the developing world passed peacefully into the US-led capitalist system. The Jakarta Method demonstrates that the brutal extermination of unarmed leftists was a fundamental part of Washington's final triumph in the Cold War.

From New York Times and internationally best-selling author Isabel Allende, an exquisitely crafted love story and multigenerational epic that sweeps from San Francisco in the present day to Poland and the United States during the Second World War. In 1939, as Poland falls under the shadow of the Nazis, young Alma Belasco's parents send her away to live in safety with an aunt and uncle in their opulent mansion in San Francisco. There, as the rest of the world goes to war, she encounters Ichimei Fukuda, the quiet and gentle son of the family's Japanese gardener. Unnoticed by those around them, a tender love affair begins to blossom. Following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the two are cruelly pulled apart as Ichimei and his family - like thousands of other Japanese Americans - are declared enemies and forcibly relocated to internment camps run by the United States government. Throughout their lifetimes, Alma and Ichimei reunite again and again, but theirs is a love that they are forever forced to hide from the world. Decades later, Alma is nearing the end of her long and eventful life. Irina Bazili, a care worker struggling to come to terms with her own troubled past, meets the elderly woman and her grandson, Seth, at San Francisco's charmingly eccentric Lark House nursing home. As Irina and Seth forge a friendship, they become intrigued by a series of mysterious gifts and letters sent to Alma, eventually learning about Ichimei and this extraordinary secret passion that has endured for nearly 70 years. Sweeping through time and spanning generations and continents, The Japanese Lover explores questions of identity, abandonment, redemption, and the unknowable impact of fate on our lives. Written with the same attention to historical detail and keen understanding of her characters that Isabel Allende has been known for since her landmark first novel The House of the Spirits, The Japanese Lover is a profoundly moving tribute to the constancy of the human heart in a world of unceasing change.

Im actually pretty average. Smooth. I know. Try not to be jealous. When she laughed - and I mean, really laughed - I knew she wasnt like the other girls Id been meeting on tour. Hell, she wasnt even in the same stratosphere as those fangirls and gold-diggers. At one point during the party, Alessandra said, Theres nothing like a girls first love. I knew she was talking about the first smash hit by my band, 22 Goats. Alessandra said it was the first song shed heard by us and it hit her like a ton of bricks. Ironic, seeing as how I was having the same reaction from being in her presence. I made it my mission to impress her. Give her the kiss of a lifetime that night.

The perfect summer read (USA Today) begins with a shocking tragedy that results in three generations of the Adler family grappling with heartbreak, romance, and the weight of family secrets across the course of one summer. Rachel Beanland is a writer of uncommon wit and wisdom, with a sharp and empathetic eye for character. Shell win you over in the most old fashioned of ways: She simply tells a hell of a story. (Rebecca Makkai, Pulitzer Finalist for The Great Believers) Atlantic City, 1934. Every summer, Esther and Joseph Adler rent their house out to vacationers escaping to Americas Playground and move into the small apartment above their bakery. Despite the cramped quarters, this is the apartment where they raised their two daughters, Fannie and Florence, and it always feels like home. Now Florence has returned from college, determined to spend the summer training to swim the English Channel, and Fannie, pregnant again after recently losing a baby, is on bedrest for the duration of her pregnancy. After Joseph insists they take in a mysterious young woman whom he recently helped emigrate from Nazi Germany, the apartment is bursting at the seams. Esther only wants to keep her daughters close and safe but some matters are beyond her control: theres Fannies risky pregnancy - not to mention her always-scheming husband, Isaac - and the fact that the handsome heir of a hotel notorious for its anti-Semitic policies, seems to be in love with Florence. When tragedy strikes, Esther makes the shocking decision to hide the truth - at least until Fannies baby is born - and pulls the family into an elaborate web of secret-keeping and lies, bringing long-buried tensions to the surface that reveal how quickly the act of protecting those we love can turn into betrayal. Based on a true story and told in the vein of J. Courtney Sullivans Saints for All Occasions and Anita Diamants The Boston Girl, Beanlands family saga is a breathtaking portrait of just how far we will go to in order to protect our loved ones and an uplifting portrayal of how the human spirit can endure - and even thrive - after tragedy.

I don't expect you to understand. You've already moved on, living your life. But mine ended that night, nine years ago, and I still can't let you go. Not sure I ever will.

Which could spell death for us all. Because Jaxon walled himself off for a reason.

An entertaining, deeply informative explanation of how high-level financial crimes work, from an industry insider whos an expert in the field. The way most white-collar crime works is by manipulating institutional psychology. That means creating something that looks as much as possible like a normal set of transactions. The drama comes later, when it all unwinds. Financial crime seems horribly complicated, but there are only so many ways you can con someone out of whats theirs. In Lying for Money, veteran regulatory economist and market analyst Dan Davies tells the story of fraud through a genealogy of financial malfeasance, including: the Great Salad Oil swindle, the Pigeon King International fraud, the fictional British colony of Poyais in South America, the Boston Ladies Deposit Company, the Portuguese Banknote Affair, Theranos, and the Bre-X scam. Davies brings new insights into these schemes and shows how all frauds, current and historical, belong to one of four categories (long firm, counterfeiting, control fraud, and market crimes) and operate on the same basic principles. The only elements that change are the victims, the scammers, and the terminology. Davies has years of experience picking the bones out of some of the most famous frauds of the modern age. Now, he reveals the big picture that emerges from their labyrinths of deceit and explains how fraud has shaped the entire development of the modern world economy.

I never meant to say a word, not one single word. But I did. And now, because of my blog, everyone knows that Ice Knights hockey star Ian Petrov's best friend and fellow player is actually his half brother - hello, hockey Hall of Famer dad who couldn't keep his jeans zipped. That wouldn't be such a big deal if Ian knew. He didn't, and boy howdy is he pissed. And who is he most mad at? Oh sure, he's upset with his dad and former best friend/brother from another mother, but most of his ire is with me. It's definitely a case of hating the messenger. And what could make it worse? How about the two of us being trapped together in a remote cabin after a massive blizzard. Neither of us can leave. Just us, the snow, his resentment, and OMG sexual tension so thick it would take a snowplow to break through it. I've got to get out of here before I do something even dumber than I've already done and kiss the sexy snarly grump with his misplaced anger and perfect pecs. That would be the worst, the absolute worst. That's why I'm not going to do it. Nope. Really. So why can't I stop imagining what it would be like?

From New York Times best-selling author Lauren Layne comes the second delightfully charming installment in the Central Park Pact series, following a young widow whose newfound cynicism about love is challenged by a sexy, rough-around-the-edges contractor. Theres never a bad time to fall in love in the city, right? Wrong. According to the recently widowed Claire Hayes, its very, very wrong. In fact, after finding out her late husband was a liar and a cheat, Claires convinced theres never a good time for romantic notions. Determined to rid her home of anything that reminds her of her philandering husband, Claire sets out to redesign her entire Upper East Side brownstone and make it her own. But when she meets gruff and often-cantankerous contractor Scott Turner and realizes not all men are scumbags, Claire must decide if shes ready to risk her heart again. Scott needs a change of pace from the corporate offices and swanky hotels hes been building lately and bluntly makes it clear to Claire that he only took on her house for that reason, adding that he has no patience for a pampered, damaged princess on his job site. But when long work days soon turn into even longer nights, their mutual wariness morphs into something more complicated - a grudging respect, and maybe even attraction? Scott knows hes not one to settle down, but then why cant he bring himself to put the finishing touches on Claires house and move on to the next job? Filled with laugh-out-loud scenes that blend perfectly with the touching friendships Layne brings to life on the page, this hugely entertaining (USA Today) novel is perfect for fans of Lauren Weisberger.

Anna I was three weeks past my 17th birthday when I first saw him running like a dog, as prospects do, during a family club function. I knew he was far older than me since hed served in the Army with my brother-in-law, Deck. He was definitely too old for me in the eyes of everyone else. I knew the rules, and Id be breaking too many of them for this not to be trouble. He was a prospect, making him off-limits. I wasnt even 18, making me off-limits. I was also a club princess, daughter of the Vice President of the Aces High MC - Charleston Chapter. That, more than anything else, made me off-limits. Still, I watched and waited for the moment when I could make myself unforgettable to him, because my heart had no limits, and it wanted Joker. Joker Prospecting for the MC was turning out to be a tougher gig than I had originally imagined. I wasnt exactly known for taking blind orders well, or taking shit from anyone in my life, so undergoing prospect hazing was trying my last damn nerve. The never-ending line of patch-chasing females was sure to make the discomfort worth my wait. Then again, I wasnt one to do easy conquests either. The shy cutie who had been staring at me all night from the corner seemed like just the challenge my worn down soul needed. She was a challenge all right. Nearly cost me everything in the end. Now, Im stuck with a liar, an old lady, and one crazy-ass impending shotgun wedding. Note: This is book three in a series of five that must be read / listened to in order. Book 1: The Other Princess Book 2: A Love So Hard Book 3: The Other Princess Book 4: The Killing Ride Book 5: A Twist of Fate Trigger Warning For sensitive listeners - there is cheating in this audiobook.

One night and my life completely jumped the tracks. Actually, a pack of expired condoms did that - the rest of the night was pretty amazing. Open bar at a friend's wedding. Bad dancing all around. Stupid trivia bets with my fellow Ice Knights hockey teammates. And Tess Gardner. The factoid-blurting, fandom-T-shirt-wearing, no-I-dont-want-a-relationship-with-you woman makes me forget for one night that Im a man with a routine and my future all mapped out. Still, it sucked she left our room without giving me her number. Fast-forward to when she tracks me down and tells me I'm going to be a daddy. Jaw, meet floor. Now I've insisted that she and our little peach pit move in with me after her apartment floods. She agrees as long as theres no funny business, no shotgun weddings, and no more nights spent naked together. Sounds easy enough. I was prepared for the late-night runs for more pickles and peanut butter, but I wasnt prepared for Tess. Shes like a glitter rainbow sparkling in the middle of my all-neutrals house, messing up my rigid schedule and turning my world upside down. What the hell do we do next?

I've had my fair share of less-than-proud relationship moments, but waking up married to my brother-in-law's best friend is a new low. A drunken wedding to a man who already rejected me once? Check. A hefty bet about how long it will last? Check. My feisty new husband, determined to make our friends pay up? Double check. I've never managed to make a real relationship last nearly a year, and there's no way Daniel will stick around long enough to win this bet. The only problem is the longer he stays, the more the lines blur between what's real and what's for show. Does he feel it, too, or am I totally screwed? Screwed is a woke-up-married, faking-it-to-their-friends, but also totally hooking up, sweet, steamy love story that happens to be the fourth book in the Four Bears Construction series. There are no bear shifters in this series, only the other kind of bears.

Except sassy Wren Bennett isn't just a blast from my past. She's the only woman I ever saw a future with.

Rob McClanaghan, the NBAs most sought-after trainer, shares a behind-the-scenes look at how superstars like Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, and Kevin Love work to excel at the game.
When Rob McClanaghan failed to make the Syracuse basketball team as a walk-on freshman, he asked the coaches what he needed to do to achieve his goal the following year. They all agreed: get stronger. So thats what he did. For months, Rob traded fraternity parties and hanging out with buddies for hours in the gym lifting weights and shooting baskets. He was single-minded; the only thing that mattered was defying the odds. He returned to Syracuse for his sophomore year 30 pounds heavier and caught the coachs eye.
In Net Work, McClanaghan - referred to by many as RobMac - brings what he brings to each of his training sessions: the same grit and spirit that got him into the college game. He calls it the grind, and he knows that without it, even the most talented players will come up short. McClanaghan pushes his clients hard; he does whatever he can to drive his players to the edge and to simulate fourth quarter, at-the-buzzer adrenaline and fatigue.
An all-access pass to the practice courts of the NBA, Net Work combines McClanaghans hard-earned wisdom - both on and off the court - with rare glimpses into the dues-paying life of professional athletes determined to stay at the top. McClanaghan shares stories of working one-on-one with some of basketballs greatest names, explaining how each athlete works to shore up his offensive and defensive weaknesses; perfect his nutrition; treat injuries; build mental toughness; and find occasional refuge from the glare of the spotlight. This book is life inside the NBA as youve never seen it, where players differentiate themselves by their willingness to put in relentless net work.

From USA Today bestselling author Penelope Bloom comes the first novel in the romantic, sexy, and hilarious Anyone But
series. Seven years ago, my best friends and I made a promise: No matter what, we would never date one of the King brothers. Even if they grew up to become megafamous, gorgeous, heart-stopping billionaires. Even if they crawled on their knees and begged for forgiveness. But guess who just flew back into our lives in a private jet? And guess who just showed up to my job on my first day? Richard. King. Fortunately, it takes two seconds for Richard to reveal he hasnt changed. Conceited. Cocky. Rude. Unfortunately, hes also the kind of gorgeous thats borderline offensive - with a jawline to make statues self-conscious and a grin that short-circuits my brain. Hes spent years taking what he wants. I doubt hes hungry for anything else - except me, apparently. Theres no way Ill let him maneuver his way back into my life. My friends would never forgive me. I would never forgive me. But did I mention his jawline?

Shawn OCallaghan loves his job as a screenwriter almost as much as he loves his family. But this latest project could quite possibly test his patience beyond anything hes ever had to endure. Generally unflappable, the author hes thrown into the trenches with pushes every button he has. Sometimes twice. And it doesnt help that he cant stop thinking about her in ways that are anything but professional. But how can he help it? The redhead is gorgeous beyond reason - and utterly infuriating. Best-selling author Lexi Perry is finally about to leave her mark on the world; after all, seeing her dark and dangerous words brought to life is a dream come true. Until she meets the man who is supposed to make that happen. From the minute they laid eyes on each other, it was clear there would be tension, but she had no idea how much until they got down to business. He obviously doesnt understand her vision. Though shes having trouble lately too, given all she can picture is what he looks like under his clothes and imagining what it would sound like if he talked dirty to her in that sexy Irish lilt of his. If they can find a way to meet in the middle, this movie could be one for the ages. As could their love.

Don't swim in my waters... I've got a bad reputation, and all because of my jackass brother. Yes, I'm known as the mother of all sea monsters. And yes, I can control powerful creatures who kill and destroy on my command. But no, I'm not actually in charge. I'm my brother's slave. So, life sucks just about as much as it possibly can. At least that's what I thought until my brother decides I'm more useful sacrificed to angry sea dragons who despise mermaids. And when I see gargoyles heading straight for me, all I'm left wondering is who will kill me first - the winged monster-hunters, or the angry sea dragons? What I don't expect? The gargoyles don't know who or what I am. So maybe, just maybe, if I can hide my identity long enough, I'll survive. But it might take a little distraction to accomplish. The thing is, I don't think I mind distracting four hard-as-stone gargoyles who can't stop staring. As long as at the end of this, I don't end up with my head on a platter. Keto's Tale is a steamy reverse harem romance that involves one lucky mermaid and four hot gargoyles. It's also a #whychoose romance, meaning the heroine doesn't have to choose between her stone-hard love interests.

Lets say youre an independent, self-sufficient woman who runs the family company and you find yourself falling for your little brothers best friend. Now, more than ever, you need to count all the reasons why you need to abandon falling. Abandon falling number one - hes a womanizer. Hasnt had a serious relationship a day in his life and changes women more often than he changes his sheets. Abandon falling number two - hes never serious. He cracks one-liners, mostly at your expense. Abandon falling number three - when things go wrong, he seems unfazed and always remains in control. Its so annoying. Abandon falling number four - he has tattoos. Lots of them. Everywhere. Not to mention, he owns a tattoo parlor. (Damn it! Why doesnt that sound like a bad thing anymore?) Abandon falling number five - theres a growing list of how different you two are. You cant get along for 15 minutes - a lifetime together would land one of you in prison. Keep repeating those reasons and drown yourself in work. Pretend you dont notice his good qualities or how enticing he looks without a shirt, and do not, I repeat, do not agree to live with the man while your place is being repaired from flood damage. Trust me, even the strongest of us can only forego temptation for so long.

They're called one-night stands for a reason. If you're lucky, there's a lot of mind-blowing sex and then you never have to see or speak to the person again. It's fun and uncomplicated. In my case, Bash hightailed it to the airport the next morning, so I definitely never expected to run into the former prospect for the Charon MC again. But when his mother passed, he dragged his pipes all the way from Texas to New York, and now he's crashing at the Satan's Knights clubhouse. Which also happens to be where I work and the scene of our one-night crime. If I thought forgetting the orgasm champ was hard before, it just became damn impossible. Grief can shake a man, make him question his whole damn life and have him taking chances he never thought he'd take. Chances like moving to Staten Island, New York. Chances like prospecting for a new club. Chances like being around a certain fiery bartender who has been in my head since we shared one incredible night. Even though I should be completely focused on earning my colors, there's a part of me that wants to chance chasing Lydia Gallo for more than one night. I want to break down her walls and uncover every one of her secrets...patch be damned. Contains mature themes.

They want me benched, or worse, shipped off to rehab. It's a long story, what happens next. How I end up on a boat, bound for the world's most remote island: Tristan da Cunha. Just a speck of dust in the Atlantic. Except my heart is there. I don't know that when I step onto the boat. I don't know a lot of things. What I'll covet.... What I'll lose....

My new neighbor is a total tool He hated me from the second he laid eyes on me, and I don't have the first clue why.... But, if he wants to hate me, I'm happy to give him a few reasons: mowing the lawn at dawn on the weekend, leaving garbage cans in front of his driveway, renting a petting zoo for my backyard...making a list of ways to drive him crazy is half the fun. He deserves it with the way he's driving me crazy right back without even trying - walking around without a shirt on, sweaty rippling muscles on full display, well-worn denim jeans perfectly molded to his...well, you get the idea. My point is, if he wants a war, I'll give him one. Nailed is an enemies to lovers, neighbors who can't stand each other, omg the anger banging, drool worthy, low angst story, which happens to be the second in my Four Bears Construction Series. It CAN be listened to as a standalone. There are NO shifters in this series, only the OTHER kind of bears.

Sometimes people come into a persons life and make their heart skip a beat. Those people are called cops. Well, one cop in particular. A SWAT officer for the Kilgore Police Department, to be specific. The first time Avery Flynn saw Derek Roberts, she was photographing him for the first annual Kilgore Police Department SWAT calendar. He was leaned back in his squad car, shirtless, and giving her a smile that was completely between them. A smile that hinted at what he wanted to do to her later. When she scrounges up the courage to ask him out after the photoshoot, he laughs in her face. Well, screw you, too, Mr. February. Derek Roberts never really paid attention to the photographer. She was a mousy girl who dressed like a 12-year-old girl. Her tight leggings, extra-baggy Star Trek t-shirt denoting her a Klingon captain, and her surprisingly clean Chucks didnt leave much of an impression. Now, the outfit that she was in weeks after he rebuffed her? Yeah, now that caught his attention. Too bad that happens when hes trying to save her from whats sure to be death thanks to an unhinged native Texan whos convinced she was the reason he lost his last chance at a million dollars. When he tries to save her, she tells him shed rather take a cattle prod to the forehead than go anywhere with him. Challenge. Accepted.

Seven years ago, I swore I'd never date Nick King. Ever. Now I'm supposed to work under him - and no, despite the way he glares like he wants to strip me bare, I mean he'll be my boss. But what better way to prove I'm really over him, right? I was a nerdy overachiever in high school, and Nick was my hopeless crush. I even laminated a note he passed to me; granted, I had a thing for laminators, but that's beside the point. Now, my only shot at getting my life back on track is to crawl to him on my knees and pray I nail the interview. Maybe I should pray that's the only thing that gets nailed in his office - especially since he looks like he wants to devour me. Nick broke my heart once. But hey, I'm still pretty handy with a laminator. Maybe I could run my heart through one before I take this job.

After Cade King cost me everything, I vowed Id never fall for him again - even if he became rich and megafamous. Go figure. Now Cade is back with his billion-dollar company...and his ability to radiate attraction like a tempting Wi-Fi hotspot. Not to mention his tendency to have worse impulse control than a chimpanzee. Id be lying if I said I didnt enjoy it a little when I arrested him for disorderly conduct. Unfortunately, I think Cade liked it a little too. So when he asks for my help, I know exactly what I should say. But somethings fried the circuits in my brain.

He lives completely in the moment. Id need to have a recurring case of amnesia to believe he could change. I guess only time will tell which one of us is the real fool in the end.

I cant borrow him. Hes not a sweater or a skirt. Hes not even her favorite dress - the lucky one she wears on first dates. The one she probably wore on her first date with him. In my defense, I didnt know who he was. To me, he was a cool, calm, confident stranger. He was perfection for the entire hour-and-a-half train ride, while the concrete jungle turned into a rolling green landscape. To an outsider, we probably appeared more friends than hopeful lovers. But my blush came quickly, and his dimples indented with every smile. We definitely shared a spark of what could be. Too bad I didnt know who he was before I fell for him, because he cant be mine.

As the 2020 presidential campaign begins to take shape, there is widespread distrust of the fairness and accuracy of American elections. In this timely and accessible book, Richard L. Hasen uses riveting stories illustrating four factors increasing the mistrust. Voter suppression has escalated as a Republican tool aimed to depress turnout of likely Democratic voters, fueling suspicion. Pockets of incompetence in election administration, often in large cities controlled by Democrats, have created an opening to claims of unfairness. Old-fashioned and new-fangled dirty tricks, including foreign and domestic misinformation campaigns via social media, threaten electoral integrity. Inflammatory rhetoric about "stolen" elections supercharges distrust among hardcore partisans. Taking into account how each of these threats has manifested in recent years - most notably in the 2016 and 2018 elections - Hasen offers concrete steps that need to be taken to restore trust in American elections before the democratic process is completely undermined.
