    They love nothing better than sipping free-trade gourmet coffee, leafing through the Sunday New York Times, and listening to David Sedaris on NPR (ideally all at the same time). Apple products, indie music, food co-ops, and vintage T-shirts make them weak in the knees. They believe they're unique, yet somehow they're all exactly the same.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Stuff White People Like to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There were no characters- my fav. bit was when he talked about how white people have to have bottled water at meetings etc. and it has to be FIJI - mainly because i had just made a specific stop at the store to by FIJI water so i wouldn't look like an idiot drinking a coke at a meeting HAHAHA. Everytime I do something that was talked about in the book i die laughing-- and I do a lot of things in the book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    LAUGH the ENTIRE time.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    When unworldly student Anastasia Steele first encountered the driven and dazzling young entrepreneur Christian Grey it sparked a sensual affair that changed both of their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and, ultimately, repelled by Christian’s singular erotic tastes, Ana demands a deeper commitment. Determined to keep her, Christian agrees. Now, Ana and Christian have it all - love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy.

    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    "Oh my"! I murmered. I don't think anyone. I mean "Holy crap!"


    What was most disappointing about E. L. James???s story?

    Repitition of the same few phrases and words over and over and over agian. Also I liked the first book for the BDSM aspect. After the first book that is pretty much gone....


    Would you be willing to try another one of Becca Battoe???s performances?

    She would be okay with a different character


    What character would you cut from Fifty Shades Freed?

    Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she'd rather not know. And now that she's an adult, she also realizes that some things that she knows about, she'd rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one. There's a thing or two she'd like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town.

    In the wild, when a wolf knows its time is over, when it knows it is of no more use to its pack, it may sometimes choose to slip away. Dying apart from its family, it stays proud and true to its nature. Humans aren’t so lucky. Luke Warren has spent his life researching wolves. He has written about them, studied their habits intensively, and even lived with them for extended periods of time.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Lone Wolf to be better than the print version?

    I like Jodi Picoult's books because they have multiple readers. It helps me to remember who is who etc. I hate reading print books so yes I think it was much better than the print book!


    What other book might you compare Lone Wolf to and why?

    Don't get me wrong I'm a huge fan of Jodi Picoult but as all of her fans know her books are pretty predictable -- there is a "ethical problem" then a "family struggle" then someone sneaks off and gets an attorney then there is the trail and then in the end it is neatly wrapped up leaving the reader with a new view of the ethical problem........

    So yes you can compare it to every other book she has written :) BUT it is a good book and VERY well researched as usual.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Different voices for different charactors are great .


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

    No. I needed breaks


    Any additional comments?

    no

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    What made the experience of listening to Fifty Shades of Grey the most enjoyable?

    Awesome book. I couldn't stop listening! It could have used a few more juicy sceens but it was a great book.


    What other book might you compare Fifty Shades of Grey to and why?

    None


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I always listen to books from audible on 2X because I think they read too slow and I like to get through books fast --- So as long as I have that option to speed them up they are fine. I wouldn't be able to listen at regular speed though no.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Extream reaction yes. laugh or cry no.

    In the traditional folktale of Sleeping Beauty, the spell cast upon the lovely young princess and everyone in her castle can only be broken by the kiss of a Prince. It is an ancient story, one that originally emerged from and still deeply disturbs the mind's unconscious. Now Anne Rice's retelling of the Beauty story probes the unspoken implications of this lush, suggestive tale by exploring its undeniable connection to sexual desire.

    Dexter Morgan has been under considerable pressure. In trying to avoid the deep suspicions of the dangerous Sergeant Doakes - who believes Dexter is a homicidal maniac (which, of course, he is) - Dexter has had to slip further into his foolproof domestic disguise. While not working as a blood-spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department, he now spends nearly all his time with his girlfriend, Rita, and her two children. But how long can Dexter play Kick the Can instead of Slice the Slasher?

    With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover, Eric Northman, and his "child", Pam, are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn into the plot - which is much more complicated than she knows.
