Here are three special episodes of The Ricky Gervais Show, featuring those doyens of the medium, the eponymous multi-award winning Ricky Gervais; Steve Merchant ( The Office, Extras); and the round-headed idiot savant, Karl Pilkington. Part I: HalloweenGhostly drivel abounds as Steve consults an SMS-based oracle, Karl experiences a kidney probing, Steve visits Bristol, Karl becomes a Godfather, and Ricky tells of some lighter moments at the morgue. (Includes a CD-giveaway contest that has already expired - sorry!) Part II: ThanksgivingKarl is unfamiliar with the American public holiday mentioned in the show´s title and launches a campaign for a calendar-free society. Ricky explains the origins of Thanksgiving, prompting him to ask Karl who might be a good choice for a present-day pilgrim father. Steve brings up the sterling work mice are carrying out in the name of medicine. Karl´s hypochondria comes to the fore as he describes a recent visit to a leg-rubber who prescribes a toe-based soporific. More readings from Karl´s diary; UFOs; the will to live; Madeira cake; Relative merits of gay and heterosexual men´s pornographic magazines; Oxfam´s extended product lines; and Karl is concerned about the shortage of new sounds. Plus there´s a (now defunct, obviously) competition to win copies of Karl´s book and the new CD box set. Part III - ChristmasKarl reflects on the year past and singles out an unlikely highlight; Steve stocks up on yuletide essentials; Karl advocates an anarchic Christmas and complains about his domestic chores; Karl´s diary draws to a close with revelations of bothersome footwear, cravat-luggage, not-so-current affairs, bees, beds, and worry-holes; and Ricky provides an emotional exit en route to the orphanage. 1.

But in the hunt for success and happiness, he falls into a shady world of sex, drugs, and swindle. The young tech elites are just as greedy as Wall Street bankers but all the more cunning.

This collection contains five Christmas radio classics from The Great Gildersleeve: ´´McGee´s Christmas Gifts´´ (December 21, 1941) ´´Gildy´s Christmas Woes´´ (December 20, 1942) ´´Christmas Show´´ (December 19, 1951) ´´Lost Presents´´ (December 26, 1951) ´´Gildy and Hooker Feud at Christmas´´ (December 16, 1953)The Great Gildersleeve was a popular radio spin-off, the eponymous character having first been introduced on the Fibber McGee and Molly show. Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve, with his booming voice, is comically vain and pompous, but also a dedicated family man with vulnerabilities that endeared him to radio audiences. Unlike many of its predecessors, The Great Gildersleeve is a true situation comedy, rather than a series of gags or brief sketches. 1. Language: English.

In this exciting collection, best-selling author Jaci Burton presents two must-listen romance novellas. In Show Me: Janine Bartolino has a pristine reputation to maintain. Responsible for managing her late father´s philanthropic interests, she has always kept both feet firmly planted on the side of staid and reserved. So when her friends surprise her on her birthday with a visit to an exclusive club that indulges in voyeurism and exhibitionism, she´s shocked - but oh so intrigued. Especially when she meets the sexiest man she´s ever laid eyes on.... In Unwrapped: Amy has worked hard to keep her private life separate from the buttoned-down world that exists in her law firm, where she´s wrestled her way into a partnership. And there´s no way she´d let someone younger than her like brash Justin Garrett get a step up on her. Justin might be smart and savvy, and also the star of some of her wildest fantasies, but work is where he belongs and where he´ll stay. But when they´re stuck together doing a corporate acquisition in Hawaii over the Christmas holidays, Justin is determined to give Amy a holiday she´ll never forget. Contains mature themes. 1.

Noelle Joy stopped celebrating Christmas 10 years ago, when Trevor Holden skipped out on their long-planned Christmas Eve wedding. He destroyed her trust in men, crushed her belief in God, and left her cynical about love. Gone is the bright, cheery spirit of the girl she thinks of now as ´´the first Noelle´´. Stronger and savvier, the new Noelle would never be found waiting at the altar for a groom who didn´t show. When a famous-but-mysterious architect commissions her to decorate his mansion for a holiday event, Noelle finally returns to her hometown. Even as she finds an unexpected peace in facing ghosts from the past, her fiercely private client disturbs her. Michael Holliday is kind and considerate, but far too handsome...and hauntingly familiar. Holliday didn´t choose Noelle to make his home a Christmas wonderland by accident. She´s the only one who can do the job he has in mind - and once she´s in his mansion, he never wants to let her go. But he´s hiding a secret that could destroy any chance of a relationship with the beautiful decorator. A false persona. A shattering secret. Can love break down these insurmountable walls? 1.
