ARE YOU LISTENING? THE INNER CIRCLE AUDIO BOOK GIVEAWAY AND LESSON FROM AUTHOR BRAD MELTZER

WELCOME TO BOOKIN' WITH BINGO'S" 
ARE YOU LISTENING? DAY" 
I AM EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE TODAY'S
AUDIO BOOK CHOICE.....
GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE INNER CIRCLE
An Audio Book
BY BRAD MELTZER  
ABOUT THE BOOK:
 There are stories no one knows. Hidden stories. I love those stories. And since I work in the National Archives, I find those stories for a living.
 

Beecher White, a young archivist, spends his days working with the most important documents of the U.S. government. He has always been the keeper of other people's stories, never a part of the story himself...

Until now.

When Clementine Kaye, Beecher's first childhood crush, shows up at the National Archives asking for his help tracking down her long-lost father, Beecher tries to impress her by showing her the secret vault where the President of the United States privately reviews classified documents. After they accidentally happen upon a priceless artifact - a 200 hundred-year-old dictionary that once belonged to George Washington, hidden underneath a desk chair, Beecher and Clementine find themselves suddenly entangled in a web of deception, conspiracy, and murder.

Soon a man is dead, and Beecher is on the run as he races to learn the truth behind this mysterious national treasure. His search will lead him to discover a coded and ingenious puzzle that conceals a disturbing secret from the founding of our nation. It is a secret, Beecher soon discovers, that some believe is worth killing for.

Gripping, fast-paced, and filled with the fascinating historical detail for which he is famous, THE INNER CIRCLE is a thrilling novel that once again proves Brad Meltzer as a brilliant author writing at the height of his craft.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Brad Meltzer is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Fate, as well as the bestsellers The Tenth Justice, Dead Even, The First Counsel, The Millionaires and The Zero Game. He is also one of the co-creators of the TV show, Jack & Bobby-and is the number one selling author of the critically acclaimed comic books, Identity Crisis and Justice League of America. His newest comic book, DC Universe, will be released in August, and his new thriller, The Book of Lies, will be published in September.

Raised in Brooklyn and Miami, Brad is a graduate of the University of Michigan and Columbia Law School. The Tenth Justice was his first published work and became an instant New York Times bestseller. Dead Even followed a year later and also hit the New York Times bestseller list, as have all six of his novels. The First Counsel came next, which was about a White House lawyer dating the President's daughter, then The Millionaires, which was about two brothers who steal money and go on the run. The Zero Game is about two Congressional staffers who are-literally-gambling on Congress. The Book of Fate, is about a young presidential aide, a crazed assassin, and the 200 year-old code created by Thomas Jefferson that ties them together. For authenticity, The Book of Fate was researched with the help of former Presidents Clinton and Bush. His newest book, The Book of Lies, is about the missing murder weapon that Cain used to kill Abel, as well as the unsolved murder of Superman creator Jerry Siegel's father. Brad is one of the only people to interview Jerry Siegel's family about the murder.

His books have spent over nine months on the bestseller lists, and have been translated into over 25 languages, from Hebrew to Bulgarian. In The Tenth Justice, the opening lines are: "Ben Addison was sweating. Like a pig." In the Hebrew translation, it became: "Ben Addison was sweating. Like a horse." We're not sure if it's a kosher thing or what!

Brad has played himself as an extra in Woody Allen's Celebrity and earned credit from Columbia Law School for writing his first book, which became The Tenth Justice. Before all of that, he got 24 rejection letters for his true first novel, which still sits on his shelf, published by Kinko's.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Brad currently lives in Florida with his wife and children.

From his site, I watched a trailer for "Decoded" which will be on the History channel (one of my favorite channels). Brad Meltzer has picked up on one the elements that makes history so fascinating. I really want to watch this series.

I really loved Brad's video lesson and plan to send it to my friends. I never thought about some of the things that he said, like thinking about people who tell you that you really do something good! This is so inspiring. When I was working, our regional director gave me a huge compliment and now I cannot remember his name!! I want to thank him like Brad thanked his teacher.

I learned from the author's website that he had a conversation with a former president that gave him the idea for the book.

I also found out that he is an inspirational speaker.

I was so moved by the TED talk that Brad Meltzer gave. It was an eloquent argument for why doing good --- even if it seems like an insignificant act --- is so important. Bravo Mr. Meltzer! I want my "legacy" to be that I treated others with kindness and compassion . . . .
