When Jack and Denny Smith decided to build a vacation dream house in Baja, California, they had no idea they were entering a phase of their lives ´´that would capture the fancy of readers throughout the United States´´. Through a series of strange and whimsical adventures, they would find that building a house takes God and Mr. Gomez. As their house took form first in their imaginations and then on paper, little things went wrong along the way. The building site had a way of moving slightly each time they visited it, and by the time the foundation was laid, it had moved to the middle of the road. Gomez got around that by simply moving the road. Fortunately, Gomez was always on hand to provide the solution, with the philosophy that all practical problems can be solved with a little time and a little tequila. 1. Language: English.

Gaston Leroux´s phenomenal novel, which inspired the hit Broadway musical, remains one of the most original suspense stories ever written. Erik, a brilliant but hideously disfigured musical genius, lives in the basement of Paris´s National Academy of Music, where he haunts the opera crowd in his mask and fancy clothes. The Phantom falls in love with Christine Daaé, a beautiful soprano, and gives her music lessons by magically throwing his voice. But Erik is stunned to learn that Christine loves Raoul, the Vicomte de Chagny, who disappears around the same time his brother, Count Phillippe, is found dead outside the Academy. A haunting tale of obsession, a touching story about internal beauty, and a top-notch detective drama, The Phantom of the Opera is a remarkable novel. 1. Language: English.

When you die...what do you want people to remember you for? What do you want to leave with your families and friends? What do you want your legacy to the world to be? Let´s be honest, you don´t want to be unimportant. You don´t want to be remembered as just another person who could have done more, who could have lived life to the fullest, who could have given back. We all have dreams and aspirations that we want to accomplish, whether they are to have big houses, fancy cars, large amounts cash in our bank accounts, dream jobs, or whether they are simpler dreams, like to send our kids to college. But to achieve anything in life...we must set goals! Goals guide your focus towards your life purpose, they are the paths leading you to where you want to go, and they are the procedure to follow if you want to achieve. Goals are your map to success. Without setting goals, no matter how much you want to do something, you will lose your way when things get tough and distractions occur, taking you off your trail to your destination.... Leaving you lost and without guidance in the chaotic jungle, as you try to stay above water in this fast-paced world. That´s why setting firm, solid goals is a must. Yet many people don´t set goals, or they set them wrong. Within Instant Goals you will find: Instant gratification: How to immediately achieve all the things you want, now, as short-term goals. The big fish: How to properly work on bigger, more rewarding long-term goals without giving up. How to fight distractions, so you don´t forget about or back out of your goals. How to stay motivated, even if you lose your way and need to find your path again. How to determine what you really want and how to prioritize what´s most import to you. 1. Language: English.
