All of these books I read a long time ago but, they were good so I figured listening to them would be like a movie adaptation where nothing is left out...oh and there's no visuals.

I'm really likeing Audible though. It's nice to have ot read to me so I can drive or whatever.
I love audible. I go through at least three books a month. It's nice to listen to a book sitting in traffic, cuts down on the rage a bit..

I'm with you on that. As a guy that delivers mail, audible is how I get through my day.

Yeah. GREAT books.
I read somewhere that he wrote the first three abd the Katrina destroyed NO so he didn't feel right about writing the rest right when that happened. He finished it off though.

Ive got about 3 credits I havent used yet and maybe 5 books to listen to. My drive to and from work is only 20 minutes and sometimes I put on music instead so I'm falling behind. Sometimes if there's no traffic at work I can squeeze some in here or there though lol

Just picked up a copy of, Wind in the Willows today. Liked the cover.Haven't read it in years, but the pipe smoking creatures and the Toad with the fast motorcar always stick out in my memory.

I love audible also, listen every day. I love almost everything that Brandon Sanderson writes. If you listen to fantasy/ science fiction you need to give him a chance. Start with the mistborn series, fast paced. The Stormlight chronicles is my favorite, but starts a little slow as there are so many story lines.

Another good author is Johnathan Stroud. Love the lockwood and co. books, a light read with tongue in cheek quips.

Been hung up on Poirot stories of late.
Good clean fun, well as good and clean as a murder mystery can be. No gratuitous sex or other "shocking" lifestyle trends.

Love the way Agatha Christie delves into the human psychology.

Loaded a book on the kindle about the WW2 Dam Busters. Should be a good read.
