Short tales about deadly books, by top mystery authors. Attempting the perfect murder, a killer encounters the perfect cop. After years of get-rich-quick schemes, Troy Pellingham´s bank account is empty and his options are down to one: take a job in his uncle´s rare-book shop and spend his days working for an unpleasant man whose only redeeming quality is a mammoth bank account. Though well into his 80s, Uncle Rodney is the picture of good health, and the day when Troy will inherit the old man´s money seems very far away. But then Troy gets a brilliant idea: why shelve books for a living when he can kill for a fortune? After the deed is done, a peculiarly shabby police detective comes to call. Lieutenant Columbo seems dimwitted, and Troy expects he will have no trouble putting him off the scent. But as the noose tightens around his neck, Troy realizes that no murder is too perfect for Columbo. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Fred Berman.

Welcome to the Museum of Everything; feel free to wander round our many galleries and experience the history of everything. Children are welcome, but please keep them in the bags provided.´´ Here is the critically acclaimed comedy sketch show written and performed by Danny Robins, Dan Tetsell, and Marcus Brigstock - the team behind BBC2´s We Are History. Based on the successful Edinburgh Festival show, it´s a sketch show in disguise, themed around the world of museums, galleries, guided tours, stately homes, historial re-enactors, and obsessive collectors, and set in the vaguely mystical and apparently infinite environs of the Museum of Everything. Our guides are a pair of long-suffering, underpaid West Country museum attendants, who pop up to remind us of museum rules, announce forthcoming attractions, and reassure us that it´s never far to the promised land of the gift shop, where you can buy leather bookmarks, novelty pencil sharpeners and fudge in the shape of Jane Austen. 1.

Winner of the 2018 Republic of Consciousness Prize.Longlisted for the 2018 Dylan Thomas prize.New Statesman Books of the Year 2017.The Telegraph Books of the Year 2017.The Guardian Best Books of the Year 2017.The White Review Books of the Year 2017.Australian Book Review Books of the Year 2017.This debut collection from Eley Williams centres upon the difficulties of communication and the way in which one´s thoughts - absurd, encompassing, oblique - may never be fully communicable and yet can overwhelm. Attrib. and other stories celebrates the trickiness of language just as it confronts its limits. Correspondingly, the stories are littered with the physical ephemera of language: dictionaries, dog-eared pages, bookmarks and old coffee stains on older books. This centres on the weird, tender intricacies of the everyday where characters vie to ´own´ their words, tell tall tales and attempt to define their worlds. With affectionate, irreverent and playful prose, the inability to communicate exactly what we mean dominates this bold new collection from one of Britain´s unique and most original new writers. 1.

´All this could be yours!´ Paddington read on the glossy leaflet showing a large, sleek silver-grey car. It took him a long time to eat 15 packets of currants in order to enter the competition. And the Rolls-Royce he´d expected to win turned out to be one of 10,000 consolation prizes - a bookmark! Then Paddington finds himself taking a driving test and, much to his amazement, is presented with a license allowing him to drive a rather unusual vehicle. 1. Language: English.

In this hour: In 2008, journalist Anand Gopal travelled to Afghanistan to speak with civilians, warlords, and Taliban fighters about the US-led war in the country. In his book, No Good Men Among the Living, he argues the distinction between America´s allies and enemies in the country isn´t always clear. Next, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Pir Zubair Shah risked his life to report from Waziristan - a Taliban stronghold in northwest Pakistan - where he was detained by both the Taliban and government forces. He spoke to Jim Fleming about the dangers of reporting from that region of Pakistan. Then: In 2003, Craig Mullaney led an infantry rifle platoon along the hostile border between Afghanistan and Pakistan. He recounts the experience in his memoir, The Unforgiving Minute: A Soldier´s Education. After that... What compels someone to commit acts of terror? Anthropologist Scott Atran has spent a decade talking with jailed suicide bombers and jihadist leaders. He says they´re motivated by core human values: brotherhood, loyalty and the dream of a better world. And then, Leslie Jamison bookmarks Orphans by Charles D´Ambrosio.

Most of the goods sold are in the jewelry, arts, crafts, housewares, artisan candies, baked goods, or paper-goods categories.

Etsy also provides a great avenue for you to sell your homemade goods - but that’s not all. You can find a limitless number of items on Etsy that will help your home business. For instance, if you use The Happy Planner, Filofax, or Erin Condren to schedule and organize your life or business, there are downloadable stickers and inserts that you can buy and use in your planner.

We want a lot of things in life - whether it is convincing our child to go to bed, our spouse to join us in an activity we want to do, our boss to give us a better salary, our co-workers to buy into our project, or a competitor, supplier, or government official to help us increase revenue or decrease costs. We have to negotiate in all these events, and we can lose that which we desire because we are unskilled at negotiation. This audiobook will walk us through initial simple two party negotiations to multi-party negotiations, disputes, and mediation. These are basic principles taught in business school, in management seminars, and in leadership programs. Many of the principles are derived from countless books on the subject matter that were prolific in the 1980s and 1990s, and some as far back as the turn of the 20th century. You should be able to listen through this in one day, but make sure to bookmark the sections that you want to come back to, and come back to them often. These principles need to be practiced in order to become part of your routine. So practice, practice, practice - starting with your closest friends and family, and then extending your practice into the business world. The Concise Reads Business Success series is a collection of short listening material that highlights important concepts in business education that every student, business owner, and entrepreneur should know from accounting and incorporating, to building a robust business plan, and managing operations.
