I get to bottle feed baby raccoons, throw mice at a coyote, and muck out the bear house at Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care! I love my new town!

  • Does This Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat?: An Easy Plan for Consuming Less and Living More

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 19 mins)
    • By Peter Walsh
    • Narrated By Peter Walsh
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Peter Walsh, the bestselling author of It's All Too Much, believes that the secret to successfully losing weight is to forget about calorie counting and weekly weigh-ins. Instead, you need to focus on how, why, and where you eat. When it comes to clearing clutter (the fat in our homes), it isn't about the stuff itself, it's about the life you want to live. The same is true for losing weight: It's not about the pounds, it's about living the life you deserve in the body you want.

    Gene says: "worth the listen"

    So ignore the title! The book is about clutter in your house and your life and in the food you eat. Actually I have not finished listening to this one. I know about food clutter and am down 29 pounds on Nutri-System, so for the moment all my junk food proclivities are in check. After listening a bit, I realized I need to get "It's All Too Much" so I got that and listened to it and was immediately motivated to get rid of a lot of stuff. Peter asks questions that make a person say, Let it go! Yes, it all goes! Some of his other readers report losing weight while they were de-cluttering their homes! I had thought my French knitting books from the 70's were part of me. No. And the church organ music starting in the 50's and continuing into Spain and Germany. No. Not me anymore. I will not play for another wedding or church service! I will not be crocheting a bikini or knitting any baby clothes. Whee! Peter makes these decisions easy and leaves his clients and readers free to let in new kinds of life. Thanks, Peter!

  • Thomas Paine's Rights of Man: A Biography: Books That Changed the World

    • UNABRIDGED (3 hrs and 36 mins)
    • By Christopher Hitchens
    • Narrated By Simon Vance

    Thomas Paine was one of the greatest political propagandists in history. The Rights of Man, first published in 1791, is the key to his reputation. Inspired by his outrage at Edmund Burke's attack on the uprising of the French people, Paine's text is a passionate defense of the rights of man. Paine argued against monarchy and outlined the elements of a successful republic, including public education, pensions, and relief of the poor and unemployed, all financed by income tax.

    Mimi says: "Exciting July Fourth Listening! Wow!"
    "Exciting July Fourth Listening! Wow!"

    Somehow I had expected this would be simply Tom Paine's writing, not a whole book about him. History, philosophy and politics are not my strengths, but I've lived long enough and traveled enough that I do care about these things. I found another audio book on the same topics, Founding Brothers, very difficult listening, although I believed it was well narrated. This book by contrast is almost suspenseful. The narrator reads with great understanding, but the book is written so as to be interesting. This author has an exciting mind!

    Back in high school I didn't really get it about the deists. And who cared about the Louisiana Purchase? Paine was already trying to solve the problem of slavery, develop a plan for freed slaves. Paine even foresaw a need for a welfare system. Well, goodness! It's a most stimulating book. Educational, exciting, most worthwhile.
