  • I Remember Nothing: And Other Reflections

    Nora Ephron returns with her first book since the astounding success of I Feel Bad About My Neck, taking a cold, hard, hilarious look at the past, the present, and the future, bemoaning the vicissitudes of modern life, and recalling with her signature clarity and wisdom everything she hasn’t (yet) forgotten. Filled with insights and observations that instantly ring true - and could have come only from Nora Ephron - I Remember Nothing is a pure delight.

    "A Huge Disappointment after I Feel Bad About My Ne"
    Overall

    This book isn't at all like I Feel Bad About My Neck, it starts with how she forgets everything, but she remembers her early years in boring detail.

    America's most delightfully unconventional hostess and the bestselling author of I Like You delivers a new book that will forever change the world of crafting. According to Amy Sedaris, it's often been said that ugly people craft and attractive people have sex. In her new book, Simple Times, she sets the record straight. Sedaris shows that anyone with a couple of hours to kill and access to pipe cleaners can join the elite society of crafters.

    Overall

    The audiobook is well produced with music, and two narrators including Amy Sedaris. It was a fun listen, and comes with a PDF showing the hideous crafts. This is a fun spoof. It is a bit short though, less than 3 hours.

    Buried in information? Cross-eyed over technology? From the bottom of a pile of paper and discs, books, e-books, and scattered thumb drives comes a cry of hope: Make way for the librarians! They want to help. They're not selling a thing. And librarians know best how to beat a path through the googolplex sources of information available to us.

    Lynn says: "Marian Isn't You Librarian"
    "Interesting bits but overall Too Much Information"
    Overall

    There were a few interesting parts but overall, it was pretty dull. I think there might be about one hour of interesting material here, I could see this excerpted on NPR or other podcasts.

    Angels of Destruction is an unforgettable story of hope and fear, heartache and redemption. The saga of the Quinn family unfolds against an America wracked by change. As it delicately dances on the line between the real and the imagined, this mesmerizing new novel confirms Keith Donohue's standing as one of our most inspiring and inventive novelists.

    Holly Helscher says: "Angelic"
    "Great reading, Great Story"
    Overall

    Better than his first book, you may be bothered by it if you have issues with books that don't align with literal interpretation of Scripture.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Love it, the best audio I've heard in years"
    Overall

    Love this audio, a good story from a gifted reader.

    Jacob is an Anglo-Dutch trader and adventurer, with a small holding in the harsh north. Despite his distaste for dealing in "flesh," he takes a small slave girl in part payment for a bad debt from a plantation owner in Catholic Maryland. This is Florens, "with the hands of a slave and the feet of a Portuguese lady." Florens looks for love, first from Lina, an older servant woman at her new master's house, but later from a handsome blacksmith, an African, never enslaved.

    Pablo says: "Great book"
    "She could read the phone book and I'd enjoy it!"
    Overall

    She has such a soothing hypnotic voice, and she's not a bad writer either, (lol)
