    In the third volume of The Dark Tower, Roland, the last gunslinger, is moving ever closer to the Dark Tower that haunts his dreams and nightmares. But he is no longer alone. He has trained Eddie and Susannah, who entered Mid-World from their separate whens in New York City in The Drawing of the Three, in the old ways of the gunslingers. But their ka-tet is not yet complete.

    "Totally addicting"
    Overall

    This whole series has me "hooked"! My husband and I listen to books while we're traveling. Not being a big Stephen King fan and having "suffered/slept" through the first book ("The Gunslinger"). . .(I wasn't driving), we arrived at our destination after a long 12 hour drive in the middle of the second book("The Drawing Of The Three"). I/we chose to drive around town for another 20 minutes until I/we could bear to shut off the book! They're THAT good! I was saddened to learn of the accident suffered by Frank Muller (who absolutely made the stories live and breathe), but was grateful to George Guidall for picking up the stories and finishing with interest & dignity, the (sadly)last of the Gunslinger/Dark Tower series. If you listen to no others, listen to these!

    After a tragically short life as a stray mutt, Bailey is surprised to find himself reborn as a rambunctious golden-haired puppy. Bailey's search for his new life's meaning leads him into the loving arms of eight-year-old Ethan. During their countless adventures, Bailey joyously discovers how to be a good dog. But this life as a beloved family pet is not the end of Bailey's journey. Reborn as a puppy yet again, Bailey wonders, will he ever find his purpose?

    Blythe says: "Best dog book ever!"
    "Absolutely loved this book"
    Overall

    If you've ever had a dog or even just known a dog this book will make you smile & sometimes laugh out loud. Endearing and at times suspenseful, I listened to it once, then happily listened again with my husband while traveling.

    MacKayla Lane's life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she's your perfectly ordinary 21st-century woman. Or so she thinks...until something extraordinary happens.

    Dana says: "Stick with it!"
    "Barbie vs The Boogieman"
    Overall

    The majority of this book might be enjoyed by 15-18 year-old girls. I listened to the end - because that's the way I am ... but I requested (numerous times) that someone just shoot me before I finished it! It might have been a contender had it not been for the incessant references to the wardrobe/accessories/nailpolish/lipstick/hairstyle-color and the sheer stupidity of the heroine.

    When Haven Kimmel was born in 1965, Mooreland, Indiana, was a sleepy little hamlet of 300 people. Nicknamed "Zippy" for the way she would bolt around the house, this small girl was possessed of big eyes and even bigger ears. In this witty and lovingly told memoir, Kimmel takes readers back to a time when small-town America was caught in the amber of the innocent postwar period - people helped their neighbors, went to church on Sunday, and kept barnyard animals in their backyards.

    shopgirl says: "Beautifully written, beautifully read."
    "Excellent book -- double covered!"
    Overall

    This book is a must-"read" for anyone born before 1965. I found, however, that the book was presented in 2-parts, but both parts were exactly the same ... ? Excellent, none-the-less!

    When Arlene Fleet heads up north for college, she makes three promises to God: She will stop fornicating with every boy who crosses her path; never tell another lie; and never, ever go back to the "fourth rack of hell", her hometown of Possett, Alabama. All she wants from Him is one little miracle: make sure the body is never found.

    Nicole says: "I couldn't turn it off!"
    "Unexpected twists"
    Overall

    I knew nothing and had no preconceived notions about this book. (I grabbed the only one I hadn't heard that was unabridged, and am so happy I did!) An enjoyable read, I was caught off guard by small twists and turns that inevitably add texture and weight to a "light" plot. The characters are carefully crafted slowly becoming more complex as the story goes on. In the same vein as "The Secret Life of Bees", by the second chapter I was totally captured and by the end longed for more by this author and this narrator.
