Can you imagine writing to Father Christmas and actually getting a reply? Every year, the children of J.R.R. Tolkien would write to Father Christmas, and the letters they received told wonderful stories of his adventures at the North Pole. These humorous tales are brought to life by Derek Jacobi as Father Christmas, John Moffatt as Polar Bear, and Christian Rodska as Ilbereth the Elf, complete with specially composed music.

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Atomic Habits by James Clear, read by the author. A revolutionary system to get 1 percent better every day. People think when you want to change your life, you need to think big. But world-renowned habits expert James Clear has discovered another way. He knows that real change comes from the compound effect of hundreds of small decisions - doing two push-ups a day, waking up five minutes early or holding a single short phone call. He calls them atomic habits.

this book is a great tool for intermediate to advanced Spanish students. Sometimes it is difficult to find short stories that are good for students. The stories are great fun and will help you to start reading books in Spanish.

  • Swallow The Happy Pill

  • Secrets To True Happiness

"I just want to be happy," a simple goal expressed as though it were the very least we could expect of life. Some phrase it differently, and some attach requirement or specifics to the statement by pre-deciding how happiness must be packaged. Nonetheless it sounds so reasonable an expectation and yet for some reason so many people spend an entire lifetime unable to reach or even discover the first step on the path to this universal desire. Many believe that this illusive state would be possible if they could only win the lottery, inherit great wealth....

I am not English my Mother tongue is Portuguese. I apologise for any grammar mistakes when I try to write my review about this audio book.
I have always had a lot of prejudice against self help books and I don't even know if this book falls in this category. The truth is I have listen to it four times already and it all makes sense! I wouldn't say it changed my life but I honestly feel it is freeing me to be and feel true to myself and to finally feel my way of looking at life was not strange or unusual. Everything the author tells us makes perfect sense! I feel lighter and happier after "swallowing the happy pill"! I can only say thank you to the author. Thank you Craig!
