Have you read "Speak" by Laurie Halse Anderson? It's a particularly powerful YA book, though it can be a bit difficult to get through, because it's from the perspective of a traumatized teenage girl.

Mom23kids, a good friend highly recommended the Laurie R. King books to me, but unfortunately they aren't available as audio books. I'll have to pick up "The Beekeeper's Apprentice" to read while travelling; I have trips to NYC and Seattle and New Orleans coming up this spring, so I need a good paperback book to get me through waiting around in airports.

I've read the first book in the Iron Druid series-very good!
The Night Circus is absolutely amazing
I started the Book Thief, the the writing style really messed with my head and I never finished it. I was bummed because it's such a highly praised book-but just not worth a headache lol.
The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie is so good-love this series!

Well, I'm now about halfway through The Princess Bride and it's going to be a solid five star read

The River of Doubt IS amazing. OH and I both read it and couldn't put it down, although at times I wanted to turn my head away from what was going on. It's impossible to imagine a former president doing this today.

Moonwalking with Einstein - so fun.

The Art of Racing in the Rain - loved it and again so did OH. I think books you both like are rare.

Under the Banner of Heaven - couldn't put it down. Excellent book.

BEST Book Ever! I wanted to read it again over the break. I agree that it is rare when my OH likes anything I enjoy.

Have you read "A Dog's Purpose"? I believe it may be just as awesome.

I might have to try it that way-thanks for the idea!


Just finished The Princess Bride and it's as good as the movie

Next up is Untraceable by Laura Griffin, which I think is a book that was recommended by one of you (or the other book thread in off topic area)

Those of you who like animal-centric books might like "Wesley the Owl: The Remarkable Love Story of an Owl and His Girl," by Stacey O'Brien. It's a memoir of a woman who fostered an injured barn owl and spent many years living with him; she's a wonderful observer, and it's really quite a remarkable book. And it is available as an audiobook.

Also, consider reading Virginia Woolf's "Flush: A biography" (about Elizabeth Barrett Browning's cocker spaniel).

my audiobook trick is to keep a little ipod hooked up in my car that is dedicated to audiobooks. Thus I only "read" audiobooks when I am driving. However, you would be surprised at how many books I go thru doing it like that.

Do you use Audible for your books? Or Itunes? I am a member of Audible and I get 1 book each month free. So I have quite a few DL'd that I have yet to hear. During academic year, I will listen while getting ready for bed and then just a bit before sleep. I also listen at my office, because mine is on the cloud. Now and then, I will listen on road trips, but just recently had satellite radio installed and have been enjoying a few of the stations. My work drive is not long enough, to hear much, but I think it is a great idea.

The great thing about Audible is that after listening to a book that I thoroughly enjoy, I will then purchase the hardback version to add to my library or to loan to family.

yes--I use audible and download from there to itunes--

I don't have a long drive to the office either--but somehow or another, between errands and this or that, a book gets listened to and because I too have a bunch downloaded, I just move on to the next one. I definitely have my "car books" versus my "walking books" that I listen to when I walk. the beauty of multiple devices and multiple books, lol!

Kristin,
Have you read Kingsolver's "Poisonwood Bible"? Another that I recently added to "waiting to read" list.

Sarah & to any others who love the classics. I personally believe that classics must be read not listened to. Because the masterpiece can be re-read over and over.

Wonderful classic reads.

Of Mice & Men - John Steinbeck
Great Expectations - Charles Dickens
The Count of Monte Cristo - Alexandre Duma (Unabridged)
To Kill A Mockingbird - Harper Lee * required reading in high school, but I have re-read and enjoyed much more several years ago. This is one that I loved the movie as well.

I've read most of Steinbeck, but not all.

Highly recommend "Cannery Row" and "Sweet Thursday". Great fun and great characters.

Also would recommend his "Travels with Charley" about driving cross country with his standard poodle. The dog would make a pfffft sound when he needed to go and John would stop for him. I'm particularly fond of this book because my late mother, when we took a road trip to visit my brother, would "pfffft" at me when she needed a bathroom break. Broke me up.

And of course, "East of Eden". The Steinbeck family and their house are a part of the story and if you are visiting Salinas, you can have lunch in the house, now run as a non-profit restaurant benefiting local charities.

Yes, thanks for expounding on her. I loved reading her factual tone and the fact that the victims are honored. Although, about the time I read her book about the Green River killer, my daughter was about the age of most of the victims and it really creeped me out!

For those who use audio books, you might want to check out Booksfree. It works like Netflix, so you pay a monthly fee to have x number of books out at a time and keep them as long as you want. The books come on CDs or in Mpeg format on a disc, and I play them on my computer with headphones, on my stereo with speakers, or on a portable DVD player. I gave a 6-month subscription to a friend, who listens on an ipod; he manages to make a copy that's readable by his ipod. I have a one-book-a-month Audible subscription, too, for things I really want to hear but aren't at Booksfree, but that subscription seems much more costly per book than Booksfree is. For example, I'm listening to 4 Nero Wolf mystery collections via Audible (1 per month), but I've managed to listen to all the other Wolf mysteries (Rex Stout is the author) from Booksfree for about the same price.

Sunday, I'm with Cindy - loved Poisonwood Bible. But have also loved everything else she's written. You'd swear a different author wrote each of her books.
Love Of Mice and Men, too, although I love it most on stage.
And To Kill A Mockingbird! That was her first and only book, wasn't it?

Dawn--I used to love Kay Scarpetta as well--but those books seem to have taken a left turn into weirdness and crazy writing over the last couple of years.

If you all have not read The Sweetness of Tears--highly recommended

Just finished Where Are You Going Bernadette and couldn't stop laughing--


Almost done with Julian Barnes Sense of an Ending and thoroughly enjoyed it--

The Art of Fielding--so so good--
