Do you find yourself rushing through your morning, stampeding to the door, making your way through traffic only to arrive 10 minutes late for work because you had to wait for the train? How does the rest of your day go? Once you get yourself into work, do you need to take a few moments to compose yourself? Perhaps you get a coffee and relax by chatting with a coworker on your way to your desk. When you sit down you see five items that need immediate attention (some left over from yesterday) and the phone starts ringing. You forgot the morning meeting! So you start rifling through your papers. Is this sounding all too familiar by now? Regardless of whether you work at home, in an office or in a factory, or whether you work for a boss or yourself, getting a grip on time seems like a daily struggle for millions of people. What does an hour of your time cost? While every dollar has the same value, every hour does not. An hour at 10 in the morning may be of much more value as a working hour than 11 at night. On the other hand, an hour at your child's bedside when he is sick is worth more than an hour at the office catching up on your filing. However, most of us recognize that an hour at work is an hour at work and if you will be there for eight or 12 hours, you want those hours to be used productively so they don't become extra hours catching up to missed deadlines or preventing you from spending time with your family. 1.

Michael Wiley’s first novel, The Last Striptease, was nominated for a Shamus Award and hailed as “riveting” (Chicago Tribune), “delightful” (Toronto Globe and Mail), and “hard-boiled fiction with tenderness and compassion” (New York Newsday). Now he offers another exciting, fast-paced, pause-resister with The Bad Kitty Lounge. Greg Samuelson, an unassuming bookkeeper, hired Joe Kozmarski to dig up dirt on his wife and her lover, Eric Stone. But now Samuelson has taken matters into his own hands. It looks like he’s torched Stone’s Mercedes, killed his boss, and then shot himself, all in the space of an hour. The police think they know how to put together this ugly puzzle. But as Kozmarski discovers, nothing’s ever simple. Eric Stone wants to hire Kozmarski to clear Samuelson. Samuelson’s dead boss, known as the Virginity Nun, has a saintly reputation but a red-hot past. And a gang led by an aging 1960s radical shows up in Kozmarski’s office with a backpack full of payoff money, warning him to turn a blind eye to murder. At the same time, Kozmarski is working things out with his ex-wife, Corrine, his new partner, Lucinda Juarez, and his live-in nephew, Jason. If the bad guys don’t do Kozmarski in, his family might. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Johnny Heller. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/blak/004306/bk_blak_004306_sample.mp3.

The pause-resisting new novel from the internationally best-selling author known for her "conversational writing style and a knack for making readers care about her characters" (The Washington Post) takes us into the homes of an idyllic suburban neighborhood where we discover the burning secrets hiding just below the surface. Bucolic Newport Cove, where spontaneous block parties occur on balmy nights and all of the streets are named for flowers, is proud of its distinction of being named one the top 20 safest neighborhoods in the US. It's also one of the most secret-filled. Kellie Scott has just returned to work after a decade of being a stay-at-home mom. She's adjusting to high heels, scrambling to cook dinner for her family after a day at the office - and soaking in the dangerous attention of a very handsome, very married male colleague. Kellie's neighbor, Susan Barrett, begins every day with fresh resolutions: She won't eat any carbs, she'll go to bed at a reasonable hour, and she'll stop stalking her ex-husband and his new girlfriend. Gigi Kennedy seems to have it all together - except her teenage daughter has turned into a hostile stranger, and her husband is running for Congress, which means her old skeletons are in danger of being brought into the light. Then a new family moves to this quiet, tree-lined cul-de-sac. Tessa Campbell seems friendly enough to the other mothers, if a bit reserved. Then the neighbors notice that no one is ever invited to Tessa's house. And soon it becomes clear that Tessa is hiding the biggest secret of all. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Madeleine Maby.

From the acclaimed author of The Darlings comes an incisive, hilarious, and tender exploration of fatherhood, love, and family life through the story of a widower who has to become the father he didn't know he could be. Charlie Goldwyn's life hasn't exactly gone according to plan. A widower at 34, he is left trying to raise a quirky five-year-old, Caleb, whose obsession with natural disasters and penchant for girls' clothing have made him a loner at his preschool. The only thing Charlie does have going for him is his job at a prestigious law firm where - after 10 long years of 12-hour days and working through weekends and a huge win on a settlement - he is finally a rising star on his way to becoming a partner. But after a Jerry Maguire moment at an office party, Charlie finds himself humiliatingly unemployed and stuck at home with Caleb for the summer as he desperately tries to win his job back. When a wedding forces Charlie to spend time with his own father - whom he hasn't spoken to in 35 years - he begins to realize that there's more to fatherhood than being able to provide financially for his son and vows to become the father he never had - and the father he never thought he was capable of being. An intimate, accessible, and ultimately moving novel, This Was Not the Plan is a touching story about loss and love, parenthood and friendship, and what true work-life balance means. 1.

On paper, Bette Robinson's life is good. At 26, she's got a great deal on an apartment in Manhattan, and she's on target to become an associate at the prestigious investment bank where she works with her best friend. Her 80-hour workweeks might keep her from socializing or dating outside her office walls, but she's paying her dues on the well-trod path to wealth and happiness. So when Bette quits her job like the impulsive girl she's never been, she not only shocks her friends and family, she has no idea what to do next. For months, Bette gets out and about by walking her four-pound dog around her decidedly unglamorous Murray Hill neighborhood. Then she meets Kelly, head of Manhattan's hottest PR and events planning firm, and suddenly Bette has a brand-new job where the primary requirement is to see and be seen. The work at Kelly & Company takes Bette inside the VIP rooms of the city's most exclusive nightclubs, to parties crowded with celebrities and socialites. Bette learns not to blink at the famous faces, the black Amex cards, the magnums of Cristal, or the ruthless paparazzi. Soon she's dating an infamous playboy who's great for her career but bad for her sanity, and scaring off the one decent guy she meets. Still, as her coworkers repeatedly point out, how can you complain about a job that pays you to party? Bette has to agree, until she begins appearing in a vicious new gossip column. That's when Bette's life on paper takes on a whole new meaning, and she learns the line between her personal and professional lives is invisible. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eliza Dushku.

In this hour, when President Obama took office, the Democratic Party was riding high, and the Republican Party, some thought, was on its way out. No one paid much attention to the Tea Party. Times have changed. Keli Carender is a Seattle area blogger considered by many to be the very first Tea Party activist. She tells Steve Paulson what the first protests were like. One of the early signs of change in the political atmosphere came with "the rant heard round the world" from Rick Santelli. He called up the ghosts of the Founding Fathers in his outrage at contemporary American Government.Next, Jill Lepore teaches American history at Harvard and writes for The New Yorker. In her new book, The Whites of Their Eyes: The Tea Party's Revolution and the Battle Over American History, Lepore does a reality check on Tea Party claims to the founding fathers. She tells Anne Strainchamps about the moment they entered the Tea Party picture.Then, these days it doesn't matter whether you are a conservative or a liberal, if you are looking for inspiration you look to Ronald Reagan. You don't have to like his politics, or even know much about them, to be aware that he's remembered as "the great communicator." Julian Zelizer is a presidential historian and professor of history and public affairs at Princeton. He tells Jim Fleming why Reagan's still so relevant today.And finally, is the war of ideas between red and blue America something new? Columnist David Sirota says no, the war was won in the 1980. By the conservatives. In his book Back to Our Future Sirota says the proof is in the staying power of 80s pop culture. As an example, he tells Steve Paulson about the hit sitcom Family Ties.
