    Where does The Never Get Out of Bed Collection: 2001 In Bed With Susie Bright — The First Season! rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A must listen.


    What other book might you compare The Never Get Out of Bed Collection: 2001 In Bed With Susie Bright — The First Season! to and why?

    Susie is the forum for Human Sexuality in all its forms. All of her programs can stand alone but I am finding are best in their entirety. The yearly Anthologies are must read catch-ups. Nothing I've found compares.


    Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Interesting start rapidly attaining polish.


    What did you learn from The Never Get Out of Bed Collection: 2001 In Bed With Susie Bright — The First Season! that you would use in your daily life?

    Be honest and show respect.

  • In Bed with Susie Bright Encore Edition: The Transsexual Perspective: Sex as a Woman vs. Sex as a Man

    On today's show, you'll meet a transgendered listener in our "Tell Me Your Sex Story" segment. Susie and "Allie" talk about what it was like growing up as a male and then transitioning to female. This very frank discussion covers how her orgasms changed when she went from penis to clit, how her libido disappeared during hormone-replacement therapy, and what it was like to feel sexual as she changed genders.

    Where does In Bed with Susie Bright Encore Edition: The Transsexual Perspective: Sex as a Woman vs. Sex as a Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Susie's interviews with her listeners are about 15 minutes and get down to business. They are unique compared to other programs I have encountered, the same is true of her weekly episodes in general.
    I had heard this interview when originally recorded in 2010 and still took more away from the Encore.


    What does Susie Bright bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Skilled live, nonjudgemental interview.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Memories of my own youth feelings and desire to look female but with a totally different outcome. Interesting to ponder the why. Too bad Susie can't do a phone Forum.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a subscriber to all of Susie's weekly programs and have heard all 600+.
    Always interesting even if the subject is out of my experience. She's a logical Lady even if I don't always agree.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Nelson Mandela's Favorite African Folktales to be better than the print version?

    The readers as one would think are outstanding, try to guess who since it is not announced!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nelson Mandela's Favorite African Folktales?

    The generosity of the Sultan's son and his reward.

    The generosity of the young boy going to market and his success.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Seen their movies. All Pros!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Feel good, it is intended as a children's book but I would recommend it to adults, especially those with children and grandchildren.


    Any additional comments?

    I may have to get this on Kindle for my wife and/or granddaughter. They will have to miss out on the super audio.

    Detective Elijah Baley is called to the Spacer world Aurora to solve a bizarre case of roboticide. The prime suspect is a gifted roboticist who had the means, the motive, and the opportunity to commit the crime. There's only one catch: Baley and his positronic partner, R. Daneel Olivaw, must prove the man innocent. For in a case of political intrigue and love between woman and robot gone tragically wrong, there's more at stake than simple justice.

    Yes, I hope it runs better than this one.

    All of Asimov's Robot and Psychohistory Novels.


    What does William Dufris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Performance.


    What character would you cut from The Robots of Dawn?

    None.


    Any additional comments?

    I obviously like the story and reader to tolerate the freeze ups and resets of my iPod. I am about to do my fourth redownload. May as well try format 2 this time I have already been through 4 twice and 3 and super once each and still can't get to the end of Part I.I listen to a lot of Audible on the same iPod without trouble.

  • Mark Twain's Library of Humor

    Master wit Mark Twain selected these 27 stories himself by 15 of his favorite 19th century authors. The order follows that which Twain placed them in in the original anthology, published in 1888. He indulged his comic fancy rather than making a textbook in which all themes or authors are placed together, saying that "This way you will have to peruse the whole thing before discovering that one of your favorites is not included." However, it is no joke that these are the authors represented: Charles Dudley Warner, Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Eugene Field, William D. Howells, James M. Bailey, Joel Chandler Harris, Katherine Kent Child Walker, Robert J. Burdette, Sam Davis, Artemus Ward, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Francis Lee Pratt, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Frederick W. Cozzens, and Twain himself.
