I love listening to audibooks when doing those tasks that don't require a lot of brain power. They make the time go by fast!

    Jeff Kinney's Wimpy Kid series is a publishing phenomenon, having reached #1 on the New York Times best-seller list. This fourth hilarious installment finds Greg Heffley approaching summer vacation with a clear plan: Stay inside and play as many video games as possible. Unfortunately for Greg, his mother has a much different idea about how the summer will transpire - she envisions lots of outdoor activities and "family togetherness".

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I am very much bothered by the incorrect English used in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. I work very hard to teach my kids proper English and this book definitely does not reinforce that. Sentences like


    What other book might you compare Diary of a Wimpy Kid to and why?

    Captain Underpants is one I associate with DoaWK. They are both about the same age and both use a reading/comic mixture.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the part with the dog on Greg's bed. How much difficulty Greg was having trying to sleep when the dog needed to go outside to take care of business.


    Was Diary of a Wimpy Kid worth the listening time?

    It was a great read for my kids and kept my attention as well. We like to listen to audiobooks when we're driving and this series is one we enjoy a lot.

    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.

    Where does Dragonfly in Amber rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Dragonfly in Amber is a wonderful continuation of the story of Claire and Jaime Fraser. The entire series is definitely at the top of my list. Davina Porter just does a phenomenal job of staying true to the characters she has depicted so far in Outlander.


    Any additional comments?

    In this book, I feel as if the story gets a bit long winded. I'm not a fan of abridgment but I believe it could have been edited some before being published. There were some points where my mind would begin to wander and I would have trouble picking up the story again. However, the storyline is still good, just make sure you're not too distracted when listening to it. And it is also vital if you're going to listen to the rest of the series.

    Best selling author John Grisham (A Time to Kill, The Brethren) returns with a new tale for modern times, offering a hilarious look at the chaos and frenzy that have become a part of our holiday tradition.

    What did you love best about Skipping Christmas?

    I read this book when it came out, several years ago and have read it every year since. I love the message you can get out of the book and at the climax of the book, I always break out in a huge grin. Definitely a favorite of mine and always helps to get me in the Christmas Spirit whenever I listen.


    What about Dennis Boutsikaris’s performance did you like?

    I love the slightly cynical intonation the performer gives to the main character in this book. He reads it as I hear it in my mind.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    hehe. Christmas with the Kranks? Actually, probably not. The movie does not do this book justice and the casting was not correct for how I envision the characters.
