I have a half hour commute to work each way. I love listening to audiobooks on the drive. It makes me look forward to the commute!

    How do we practice II Corinthians 10: 3-5, "tearing down strongholds by captivating our minds with the knowledge of God"? Beth Moore tells you how in Praying God's Word. A topical prayer guide addressing 14 common strongholds and what Scripture reveals about each of them, Praying God's Word presents Scriptures in prayer form to be incorporated into your daily prayer life.

    Overall

    Although I love Beth Moore, I think this book would be better in print. There is a lot of scripture included that is intended for prayer. I think it's the kind of thing you'd really want to have in your hands as you are praying.

    In the little town that's home-away-from-home to millions of readers, life hums along as usual. Dooley looks toward his career as a vet; Joe Ivey and Fancy Skinner fight a haircut price war that takes no prisoners; and Percy steps out on a limb with a risky new menu item at the Main Street Grill.

    Story

    I love Jan Karon's books, especially the Mitford series. The characters have become like old friends. The sense of wit and charm are welcomed and sometimes surprising. This particular novel in the series is a little more "down" that I have come to expect. More worries, sadness, and troubles. I am coming near the end of the series and am going to have to choose a time when I'm not driving to listen to "A Light from Heaven" as I'm sure it will bring tears

    At last, Mitford's rector and lifelong bachelor, Father Tim, has married his talented and vivacious neighbor, Cynthia. Now, of course, they must face love's challenges: new sleeping arrangements for Father Tim's sofa-sized dog, Cynthia's urge to decorate the rectory Italian-villa-style, and the growing pains of the thrown-away boy who's become like a son to the rector.

    Although this is not the most exciting book in the world, I really enjoyed it. It made me laugh and cry. Most of the book is light humor, with a touch of poignancy. I listened to this on 35 minute commute every day and looked forward to it each time I got in my car. I'm going to download the next in the series.

    Tana French's debut, In the Woods, hit the New York Times best-seller list and drew rave reviews from the Times (London) and Booklist. Picking up six months later, this riveting sequel finds Detective Cassie Maddox still scarred by her last case. When her boyfriend calls her to a chilling murder scene, Cassie is forced to face her inner demons. A young woman has been found stabbed to death outside Dublin, and the victim looks just like Cassie.

    I don't usually write reviews, but I just could not get away from this book! Great story, great reader. You really feel like you get to know the characters, but this one also had a great surprise ending. Loved it.

    New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now this sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel.

    This is the second in the series and just as good as the first. Even those these books are really long, they keep you interested. This story has been my constant companion while doing housework, sewing, and taking long baths. Looking forward to the next in the series.

    Allison Bottke is the creative force behind the best-selling God Allows U-Turns series and ministry. Her first novel follows Dee Decker, who in the past year has lost 150 pounds, gained a whole new wardrobe filled with designer shoes, and become a Christian. But a job offer could cause her past and present to collide in a flash of Manolo Blahniks and Prada handbags. Dee thought she had it all figured out - but can a person really be both fashionable and faithful?

    Becka says: "Liked it"
    "Surprisingly good"
    Overall

    Coming from a Christian perspective, I found this book surprisingly good. It combines high fashion, the corporate workplace, and down - home values that prevail at the end. A good, light listen.

    "I believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger...." writes Wilfred Leland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up "1922", the first in this pitch-black quartet of mesmerizing tales from Stephen King. For James, that stranger is awakened when his wife, Arlette, proposes selling off the family homestead and moving to Omaha, setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and madness.

    Parusski says: "Eerie, honest, frightening!"
    "Just too creepy for me"
    Overall

    I am normally a big Stephen King fan and love his books. However, I could barely get past the first hour in this one. Something about a father coercing his 14 year old son to kill his mother is just too wrong for me.

    The murder of Paul Wheeler has all the elements of a blockbuster: family rivalries, incalculable wealth, and a prominent man dying in the arms of his beautiful mistress. It's a case that could earn Derek Mitchell even greater star power. When the Wheeler family approaches him about defending Creighton for his uncle's murder -- even before he's charged -- he jumps at the chance.

    Scott says: "Bad Guy With Interesting Hobby"
    "Smash Cut is a smash!"
    Overall

    OK, the title is a little corny, but the book is really good. Just finished listening to it over the last 2 days. Great murder story by Sandra Brown. There is some gore and one of the main characters has a despicable attitude that makes you just want to slap him. It's not really a "who-done-it" since you find out early on who it is, but it does keep you riveted and there are some surprises at the end.

    This is a great overview of ADD written by a college kid with ADD. Just reading through this prompted me to take action and get seen for my own ADD issues.
