I listen to audiobooks while I sew, quilt, knit, make greeting cards, make mini scrapbook journals, work in the kitchen and iron clothes.

    At Madeline's Tea Salon, the cozy hub of the Avalon community, local residents scrapbook their memories and make new ones. But across town, other Avalonians are struggling to free themselves of the past: Isabel Kidd is fixing up her ramshackle house while sorting through the complications of her late husband's affair. Ava Catalina is mourning the love of her life and helping her young son grow up without his father. And Frances Latham eagerly anticipates the arrival of a little girl from China - unprepared for the emotional roller coaster of foreign adoption.

    What disappointed you about The Avalon Ladies Scrapbooking Society?

    The narrator was horrible. She made her characters sound old and crotchety. It was hard to finish this audio book. The plot was predictable and sophomoric.


    What could Darien Gee have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I am not sure.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    I do not like giving negative feedback; however this book was not worth the money.

  • My Thoughts Be Bloody: The Bitter Rivalry Between Edwin and John Wilkes Booth

    • UNABRIDGED (19 hrs and 28 mins)
    • By Nora Titone, Doris Kearns Goodwin (introduction and notes)

    My Thoughts Be Bloody, a sweeping family saga, revives an extraordinary figure whose name has been missing, until now, from the story of President Lincoln's death. Edwin Booth, John Wilkes's older brother by four years, was in his day the biggest star of the American stage. Without an account of Edwin Booth, author Nora Titone argues, the real story of Lincoln's assassin has never been told.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to a friend. It is informative, interesting, well written, well narrated.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Thoughts Be Bloody?

    I am still listening, but the most memorable moments so far are the facts about the Booth family and the society in which they lived.


    What about John B. Lloyd’s performance did you like?

    I liked John B. Lloyd's voice, pacing, tone and inflection. He is one of my favorite audio book narrators.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    What is most moving so far, is how the events in a person's life can change the world.


    Any additional comments?

    I am really enjoying this book. I find I learn about history much better by listening to audio books about certain time periods, than I ever did in the classroom. I enjoy learning about the mid and late 1800's, especially about the Civil War, by listening to audio books.
