    The beloved and best-selling author of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings reads aloud from her third book of verse. She not only gives life to many of her most cherished poems, but she also presents personal introductions to several favorites, including "One More Round", "Woman Work", and "Life Doesn't Frighten Me".

    Rudyard Kipling's story of how the elephant got its trunk has always delighted children with its playful use of language and sense of high adventure. Never has there been a more satisfying rendering of Kipling's most beloved "Just So" story, which explains what the world was like in the beginning of years when the world was new.

    Would you listen to The Elephant's Child again? Why?

    Anything Jack Nicholson reads is my Library, watching any of his movies and seeing his facial expressing you can easily place in this audio book, its a great story and I listen to on a regular basis.


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

    Jack Nicholson brings award winning performance in this audio book that he does in his movies. But, I have always enjoyed Jack Nicholson so I may be just a little

  • The Poets' Corner: The One-and-Only Poetry Book for the Whole Family

    John Lithgow has compiled an outstanding collection of memorable poems and has gathered his famous friends to read them. The wide variety of carefully selected poetry in this audiobook provides the perfect introduction to reel in those who are new to poetry, and for poetry lovers to experience beloved verses in a fresh, vivid way. Lithgow offers insightful and sometimes poignant commentary to accompany each poem. His essential criterion is that "each poem's light shines more brightly when read aloud".

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Lucky Spot (Dramatized) to be better than the print version?

    The audio edition is always my preference because the book gives the words the audio gives the performance and it gives the listener total control as to actors physical features, the book tell us what to see.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Very enjoyable story line.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    All characters are performed very well, but I have always been a Jean Smart and Jack Black fan.


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

    Great in the car stuck in traffic audio book!


    Any additional comments?

    Looking for more, Audio Books at Audible are my Iphone more than music. I am hooked!

    Feisty Chicago private eye Vic ‘V.I.’ Warshawski is used to getting mixed up in complicated cases. But when three million dollars in share certificates are stolen from a Dominican priory, she really doesn’t want to get involved. Because agreeing to investigate would mean doing a favour for Aunt Rosa, the priory’s treasurer, and Vic has never forgiven Rosa for something she did a long time ago. Against her better judgement, Vic gets drawn in, only to be suddenly called off the case.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of BBC Radio Crimes: A V.I. Warshawski Mystery: Killing Orders?

    V.I. talking with Gabrellea (?) (her dead mother) ,


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

    Its more real, the mind gets a real visual of the characters and even the cloths they would be wearing, excellent cast of readers, if they are just sitting at a table and reading it sure doesn't come across that way.


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