Forget the radio for your commute…try out a (NEW) book on CD!

I’m a neophyte to the audio book world, but I’ve absolutely fallen in love. Based on a recommendation, I checked out the first Artemis Fowl audiobook from our library, and began listening on my 40 minute commute into work. It was amazing! Listening to an audiobook, especially one with an excellent narrator, makes the time I spend driving go by so much faster (and is much safer than talking on a cellphone!).  As the story progressed, I found I was so caught up in the plot that it became harder to get out of my car once I arrived at work! I also started listening to a downloaded version on my mp3 player while at the grocery store. Thanks to audio books,  the stressful aspects of my day was transformed into something entirely different.
Our library has a wide variety of books on CD available, come by and look at the selection. Here are some of the newest titles available, place your holds today!

Dancing in the Dark: A Cultural History of the Great Depression
The Vertical Farm: Feeding the World in the 21st Century
Rival Rails: The Race to Build America’s Greatest Transcontinental Railroad
The Amazing Story of Quantum Mechanics: A Math Free Exploration of the Science that Made Our World
Nelson Mandela: Conversations with Myself
On The Edge of Survival: A Shipwreck, A Raging Storm, and the Harrowing Alaskan Rescue That Became A Legend
Betty White: Here We Go Again
Fresh Air with Terry Gross: Just for Laughs
The Mob and Me: Wiseguys and the Witness Protection Program
Bound: A Novel
Composing a Further Life: The Age of Active Wisdom
Don’t Vote: It Just Encourages the Bastards
At Home: A Short History of Private Life


Diane’s 2008 Favorites

Books that made me neglect housework:


Stealing Athena by Karen Essex


The Building of Jalna by Mazo De La Roche

Favorite Read-a-Louds to my kiddos:


Juniper/Wise Child/Colman by Monica Furlong- A wonderful fantasy trilogy by a fascinating woman (mostly known for the religious biographies she wrote).


Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder- an old favorite that we love to read every winter. The descriptions of Almanzo’s love of food rival Babette’s Feast.


The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznik- Words and drawings tell the tale of an orphan boy in Paris living in the walls of a train station. A giant book, but easily read in a day or two.



Snack Time by the Bare Naked Ladies- Extremely catchy and witty kids’ music.

Latin Playground by various artists

More later, when I remember them. 🙂
