I love audible books. I can paint, run errands and clean my house while listening to a book. The best.

    The world is changing. Markets have crashed. Jobs have disappeared. Industries have been disrupted and are being remade before our eyes. Everything we aspired to for "security," everything we thought was "safe," no longer is. But more and more opportunities are rising out of the ashes of the broken system to generate real success. Choose Yourself illuminates your personal path to building a bright, new world out of the wreckage of the old.

    James Altucher should not narrate. He talks too fast. He has great advice but his pace was so fast it was hard to listen to at times. So good content but bad narration.

    The last time Sophie saw sexy P.I. Anatoly Darinsky, he practically danced a jig when she waved goodbye; a normal reaction for a man who'd nearly bought the farm trying to protect her from her own foolishness. What are the chances he'd agree to take incriminating pictures of her sister's philandering husband? Or that he'd let her tag along, you know, for research?

  • Shop Class as Soulcraft: An Inquiry into the Value of Work

    Shop Class as Soulcraft brings alive an experience that was once quite common but now seems to be receding from society - the experience of making and fixing things with our hands. For those who felt hustled off to college, then to the cubicle, against their own inclinations and natural bents, Shop Class as Soulcraft seeks to restore the honor of the manual trades as a life worth choosing.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Maybe people who really enjoy cars and engines. The car lingo just lost me a lot of the time.


    What could Matthew B. Crawford have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Maybe not so technical, but that is his passion so I can appreciate that. It was like he was speaking another language. Car language and vocabulary words I wasn't sure about. I thought I had a well rounded vocabulary but apparently not.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Max Bloomquist’s performances?

    I'm not sure. He seemed kind of dry but that may be the writing.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment and frustration. I wanted to like it, but I just couldn't .


    Any additional comments?

    I think if you like cars and tinkering with mechanical stuff you may like it, but his descriptions seemed kind of high brow and unaccessible.

    Enter the world of the Pendleton: The original owner became a recluse - and was rumored to be more than half mad - after his wife and two children were kidnapped in 1896 and never found.

Craftsmen and laborers working on renovations disappear or go mad.... For years, the Pendleton is a happy place, until a bad turn comes again.... Voices in unknown languages are heard in deserted rooms....

    Long ago, Susan Rodriguez was Harry Dresden's lover-until she was attacked by his enemies, leaving her torn between her own humanity and the bloodlust of the vampiric Red Court. Susan then disappeared to South America, where she could fight both her savage gift and those who cursed her with it.Now Arianna Ortega, Duchess of the Red Court, has discovered a secret Susan has long kept, and she plans to use it-against Harry.

    Overall

    I started listening to this series through audible and I just love it. I have listened to all twelve books. Now, I have to wait for the next one! The title is definitely no joke. Changes? that is putting it mildly. James Marsters is such a great narrator! He just brings it to life. If they ever did a movie he would have to be Dresden. Mr. Butcher please please hurry and give us another book.

    When she moved to Stoneham, city slicker Tricia Miles met nothing but friendly faces. And when she opened her mystery bookstore, she met friendly competition. But when she finds Doris Gleason dead in her own cookbook store, killed by a carving knife, the atmosphere seems more cutthroat than cordial. Someone wanted to get their hands on the rare cookbook that Doris had recently purchased-and the locals think that someone is Tricia.

    beatrice says: "Pretty Good"
    "I love the Characters"
    Overall

    When I first started listening I thought Trisha was a little bratty about her sister, but as it went on I enjoyed their dynamic. I also enjoy all of the other characters, even the mean ones. I can't wait to read the next book.
