Countdown to Pearl Harbor
This ‚;riveting’ (Los Angeles Times). ‚;crackerjack read’ (Smithsonian) turns the lead-up to the most infamous day in American history into a ticking time-bomb thriller. Never before has a story you thought you knew proven so impossible to put down.In Washington. DC. in late November 1941. admirals composed the most ominous message in Navy history to warn Hawaii of possible dangerbut they wrote it too vaguely. They thought precautions were being taken. but never checked to be sure. In a small office at Pearl Harbor. overlooking the battleships. the commander of the Pacific Fleet tried to assess whether the threat was real. His intelligence had lost track of Japan’s biggest aircraft carriers. but assumed they were resting in a port far away. Besides. the admiral thought Pearl was too shallow for torpedoes; he never even put up a barrier. As he fretted. a Japanese spy was counting warships in the harbor and reporting to Tokyo. There were false assumpt

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize. Annie Proulxs The Shipping News is a vigorous. darkly comic. and at times magical portrait of the contemporary North American family.Quoyle. a third-rate newspaper hack. with a head shaped like a crenshaw. no neck. reddish hair…features as bunched as kissed fingertips. is wrenched violently out of his workaday life when his two-timing wife meets her just desserts. An aunt convinces Quoyle and his two emotionally disturbed daughters to return with her to the starkly beautiful coastal landscape of their ancestral home in Newfoundland. Here. on desolate Quoyles Point. in a house empty except for a few mementos of the familys unsavory past. the battered members of three generations try to cobble up new lives.

Old Testament of the New American Standard Audio Bible
The New American Standard Bible is one of the most accurate translations of the scriptures. Let professional voice artist Dale McConachie. narrator of over one hundred audiobooks. take you on a journey through the Old Testament. where you will discover the relationship between God and the nation of Israel. The Pentateuch deals with the creation of Israel and God establishing a covenant relationship with Israel.
