I was standing at an open window, staring at the dizzying curve of Riverside Drive, five floors below. I´d stopped, somehow, poised, about to jump. Growing up the good girl in an Irish American family full of drinkers and terrible sleepers, Kathleen Frazier was 12 when her seemingly innocent sleepwalking turned dangerous. Over the next few years, she was a popular A+ student by day, the star of her high school musical. At night she both longed for and dreaded sleep. Frazier moved to Manhattan in the 1980s, hoping for a life in the theater but getting a run of sleepwalking performances instead. Efforts to abate her malady with drinking failed miserably. She became promiscuous, looking for nighttime companionship. Could a bed partner save her from flinging herself down a flight of stairs or out an open window? Exhaustion stalked her, and rest and love were seemingly out of reach. This is the journey Frazier illuminates in her intimate memoir. While highlighting her quest to beat her sleep terrors and insomnia, this is ultimately a story of health, hope, and redemption. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kathleen Frazier.

Shelby Nichols is an average woman who is married to the only guy she ever fell for. Her life is organized and predictable, revolving around her husband and two children. All that changes the day she stops at the grocery store for some carrots. As the cashier rings up her purchases, a gunman is busy robbing the bank inside the store. When a customer grabs the robber´s mask, he is shot and everyone runs for cover. Everyone except Shelby, who finds herself face to face with the killer. The next thing she knows, she´s lying on the floor with a bullet wound to her head. Luckily, the bullet only grazes her scalp, and she doesn´t suspect any lasting affects until later, when she suddenly ´hears´ what people are thinking. With this uncanny ability, her life takes on a whole new dimension. Her kids think she´s bossy and too old to understand them, but that´s nothing compared to her husband. He says he loves her, but what is it about the redhead at work that he doesn´t want her to know? As if that isn´t enough, the gunman knows she can identify him, and he´s out to silence her forever. In her fight to stay alive, she is saved from certain death by a handsome hit-man with ties to organized crime. This pulls Shelby even deeper into danger, where knowing someone´s thoughts can not only hurt her feelings, but get her killed. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wendy Tremont King.

Mandy, a novice nurse at Freeport hospital, took the elevator down to get supplies for her area. It only took a moment to go from four down to three. The elevator doors opened to a dimly lit floor. She walked out and glanced to her right. The empty nurses station was just down the hall before the double doors that she assumed led to the now empty rooms. There were a few boxes on the counter that surrounded the station, but other than those, the station was empty. She turned to the left and saw the closed door with the word ´´Supplies” stenciled on it. Hurrying over to the doors, she pulled out the key and inserted it into the lock. A light switch was conveniently located right inside the door and Mandy switched it on. Bright light flooded the interior of the supply room. Metal shelves lined up in narrow aisles throughout the room. She easily located the sheets and also found a plastic tub she could use to carry them upstairs. She piled the sheets into the tub, carried them out of the room, then turned off the light and then locked the door.Hefting the tub back into her arms, she turned around and was surprised to see a little girl standing next to the empty nurses station. Mandy guessed the little girl was about eight years old. She had a hospital gown on and her hair was styled in two braids that hung on either side of her head. She must have wandered away from the Pediatric Ward on the second floor. ´´Hey sweetheart,” she said. ´´I’m Mandy. Are you lost?”The girl stared at the nurse for a long moment, but didn’t answer.´´Come on, I can bring you back to your room,” Mandy coaxed, not wanting to frighten the child. The child didn’t respond. Mandy put the tub down, looked back up and the child was gone. Shaking her head in surprise, Mandy slowly stepped forward, her heart thumping in her chest. 1.

The zombie apocalypse continues.... I did the first thing that came to my mind, and that was to kick the shell in the head as hard as I could. Although there was an audible snap, the head moved very little. The putrid, undead thing continued trying to grab hold of me, but I managed to evade its hands and keep kicking. At the same moment, I heard a squish sound and saw blood start pouring from the head onto the yellowish tile floor. Lawrence was standing next to me. He had his gun out and pointed at the stairs. The sound of shells slowly grew louder. And just like that, the wave of bodies began pouring down the stairs. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Todd Menesses.

This book begins with an expose of Grover Cleveland who was known for being an honest politician during his presidency in the 1880s. Although he was generally an honest president as well, there happened to be an incident during which he disappeared aboard a friend´s yacht for four days and lied about the reason for his absence. Moving on to the next story, we learn about Edwin Howard Armstrong, also known as The Major, who is just about to jump from the 13th floor of a New York City apartment block at the end of January 1954. He had left a note that calculated the odds of his body being smashed upon impact with the ground below. He took the time to dress in attire which people would recognize him in for identification purposes and then moved over to the window. This part of the book does not tell whether or not Armstrong actually jumped. First, we are told the race to discover, decode and understand the new phenomenon of radio would be run by Armstrong, David Sarnoff and Lee de Forest. Abruptly, the narrative jumps back in time some 48 years as we join a much younger Armstrong being chastised by his mother for not coming inside when she ordered. The young Armstrong is, we discover, sitting in a chair hanging from ropes attached to his newest and best 100 foot antenna enjoying the feel of the wind at such a height. Even at this young age, Armstrong was considered gifted, from the construction of his first crystal set radio receiver came his dream of taking this new technology and using it to bring sounds of voice and music into every home in America. 1.
