    Maybe it was those extra five pounds I'd gained. Maybe it was because I was about to turn the same age my mother was when I lost her. Maybe it was because my husband and I seemed to be running out of things to say to each other. But when the anonymous online study called "Marriage in the 21st Century" showed up in my inbox, I had no idea how profoundly it would change my life. It wasn't long before I was assigned both a pseudonym and a caseworker. And, just like that, I found myself answering questions.

    Where does Wife 22 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Wife 22 is definitely in the top 25% of the books I have listened too. It's a fun listen.

    Jack St. Bride was a popular teacher and soccer coach at a girls' prep school when he was falsely accused of statutory rape. Released after eight months behind bars, he arrives in Salem Falls hoping to start fresh. He lands a job washing dishes at the local diner and even falls in love with the owner, Addie. But then a spoiled local girl accuses Jack of assault, forcing his past into the open and turning the town against him.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This novel was fine, but it definitely was disappointing compared to the many other Picoult novels I have read.


    What was most disappointing about Jodi Picoult’s story?

    There were just parts of it that were unbelievable. Lots of the court scenes and what was admissable (such as his record) didn't hold true.

  • The Great Gatsby

    F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic American novel of the Roaring Twenties is beloved by generations of readers and stands as his crowning work. This new audio edition, authorized by the Fitzgerald estate, is narrated by Oscar-nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain). Gyllenhaal's performance is a faithful delivery in the voice of Nick Carraway, the Midwesterner turned New York bond salesman, who rents a small house next door to the mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby....

    What disappointed you about The Great Gatsby?

    I've read the novel and it has always been one of my favorite classics, but I was bored to death by the reading. I listen to lots of audiobooks and this one could not keep my attention. The reading just seemed flat to me. I couldn't finish it.

    From Lauren Graham, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, comes a witty, charming, and hilariously relatable debut novel about a struggling young actress trying to get ahead - and keep it together - in New York City. It’s January 1995, and Franny Banks has just six months left of the three-year deadline she set for herself when she came to New York, dreaming of Broadway and doing "important" work. But all she has to show for her efforts so far is a part in an ad for ugly Christmas sweaters, and a gig waiting tables at a comedy club....

    What did you love best about Someday, Someday, Maybe?

    I love Lauren Graham's reading of her book. I'm not sure I would like this as much to read myself, but I love listening to it. She is an excellent performer and I am thoroughly enjoying the book--I only have a tiny bit left and I just downloaded it yesterday. Definitely recommend it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Franny is my favorite character because you see her struggle, you see her insecurities, yet you see her strength too. I love that she can laugh at herself, because who of us doesn't do that, or at least need to do that? She's someone I would love to be friends with.
