    This is book two in the Mitford series and I just can't get enough. If this were a real town I would definitely want to live there.

    Decision Points is the extraordinary memoir of America's 43rd president. Shattering the conventions of political autobiography, George W. Bush offers a strikingly candid journey through the defining decisions of his life.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Decision Points the most enjoyable?

    The narrator sounded a lot like GWB. It was the way President Bush structured the story. What was going on that the public saw and what was going on behind the scenes and his personal recollections of those moments.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Decision Points?

    The retelling of that moment in that elementary school when he was given the news about the Towers being hit. Pres Bush caught a lot of crap about that, liberal media saying he just sat there not reacting but when I see that news footage what I saw was a man deeply concerned but also not wanting to frighten a room full of young children. Think about the information he had to process, who among us could wrap our minds around what was happening that morning and the President had an audience of children. I applaud how he handled that moment. Actually I applaud how President Bush handled himself throughout those next few weeks, he shared our outrage and DID SOMETHING ABOUT IT.


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

    Yes but of course that wasn't possible


    Any additional comments?

    I am so glad President Bush wrote this book, it shed light on issues for me that I found fascinating.

    Father Tim and Cynthia arrive in the west of Ireland, intent on researching his Kavanagh ancestry from the comfort of a charming fishing lodge. The charm, however, is broken entirely when Cynthia startles a burglar and sprains her already injured ankle. Then a cherished and valuable painting is stolen from the lodge owners, and Cynthia's pain pales in comparison to the wound at the center of this bitterly estranged Irish family.

    R. Jones says: "Good as ever, but...."

    Would you listen to In the Company of Others again? Why?

    Absolutely It's a good story with interesting characters BUT if you are expecting all the Mitford gang you will be disappointed. They are in Ireland without Dooley, Harley, Puny, the twins, and even Barnabas.


    Any additional comments?

    Once you get past that the cast of characters is different you can settle in and get to know their new friends.

    When the NSA's invincible code-breaking machine encounters a mysterious code it cannot break, the agency calls its head cryptographer, Susan Fletcher, a brilliant, beautiful mathematician. What she uncovers sends shock waves through the corridors of power. The NSA is being held hostage, not by guns or bombs, but by a code so complex that if released it would cripple U.S. intelligence.

    A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences. Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.

    What did you love best about Stories I Only Tell My Friends?

    First of all I love it when the author is also the narrator so kudos to Rob Lowe for putting his voice to his words. Secondly, it was hard to turn it off. His stories pull you in and you want more. I loved that he kept it dignified throughout while still telling such personal details. This will be one of those books I listen to once a year. Loved it.

    At last, Mitford's rector and lifelong bachelor, Father Tim, has married his talented and vivacious neighbor, Cynthia. Now, of course, they must face love's challenges: new sleeping arrangements for Father Tim's sofa-sized dog, Cynthia's urge to decorate the rectory Italian-villa-style, and the growing pains of the thrown-away boy who's become like a son to the rector.

    Sara says: "Another pleasant read"
    "Home run again!!"

    I've listened to every book in series and I highly recommend entire series.
