    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    If you could sum up Fifty Shades of Grey in three words, what would they be?

    Yes! Yes! Yes!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Fifty Shades - Christian


    What about Becca Battoe???s performance did you like?

    I think she did a great job. You have to remember that Anna is only 21 and very young and inexperienced. I think Becca gave a great performance. I know alot of people did not like it and thought it was bad. I thought is was great. I have over 300 audiobooks in my library and I have run across some bad performances and this was not one.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!

    "Why me? Why now?" That’s what Beaulac, Louisiana, detective Kara Gillian was asking herself when an angelic creature named Rhyzkahl unexpectedly appeared during a routine summoning. Kara was hoping to use her occult skills to catch a serial killer, but never had she conjured anything like this unearthly beautiful and unspeakably powerful being whose very touch set off exquisite new dimensions of pleasure.

    Nicola Marter was born with a gift. When she touches an object, she sometimes glimpses those who have owned it before. When a woman arrives with a small wooden carving at the gallery Nicola works at, she can see the object’s history and knows that it was named after the Firebird - the mythical creature from an old Russian fable. Compelled to know more, Nicola follows a young girl named Anna who leads her into the past on a quest through the glittering backdrops of the Jacobites and Russian courts, unearthing a tale of love, courage, and redemption.

    After breaking off her engagement, 30-something Andi Cutrone yields New England to her ex and flees home to Long Island. There, she devotes her time to teaching in the writing program at Brooklyn University and overanalyzing her past failed relationships. But then she meets Devin, a male escort whose client list seems to include at least half of the accomplished women she knows. He is handsome, charismatic, and absolutely out of her league, but she can’t deny he has a certain…something. And so Andi makes him a proposition: If he will teach her to shed her sexual inhibitions, she will teach him to be a writer.

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

    Would you listen to An Echo in the Bone again? Why?

    Yes, I loved all the POV's from everyone! The more books Diana Gabaldon writes in this series the more I fall in love with the characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of Course, Jamie and Claire! But Lord John, Bree, Roger, Ian, Fergus and all the rest add nothing but charm!


    Which character ??? as performed by Davina Porter ??? was your favorite?

    Jamie!


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

    You go thru all emotions when reading this great series.


    Any additional comments?

    Spoiler Alert! I love that Claire and Lord John has had carnal knowledge of each other. That emotion of losing a loved one was there for both of them, over welcoming so.
