    It’s all about the food…. For the Robertsons, family is typified by the dinner table, where both food and fables are dished up with equal care. Anyone with a good story - whether it be a hunting escapade or one of the children’s antics - is welcome to share. And that’s what this family is all about - sharing, caring for one another, and the love of good food. Chapters are built around recipes that represent each stage of the Robertson life. What do faith, family, ducks, and money have in common? Korie and Willie Robertson!

    In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable.

    A 39-year-old with Asperger’s syndrome and obsessive-compulsive disorder, Edward Stanton lives alone on a rigid schedule in the Montana town where he grew up. His carefully constructed routine includes tracking his most common waking time (7:38 a.m.), refusing to start his therapy sessions even a minute before the appointed hour (10:00 a.m.), and watching one episode of the 1960s cop show Dragnet each night (10:00 p.m.). But when a single mother and her nine-year-old son move in across the street, Edward’s timetable comes undone....

    This no-holds-barred autobiography chronicles the remarkable life of Phil Robertson, the original Duck Commander and Duck Dynasty star, from early childhood through the founding of a family business. Life was always getting in the way of Phil Robertson’s passion for duck hunting. An NFL-bound quarterback, Phil made his mark on Louisiana Tech University in the 1960s by playing football and completing his college career with a master’s degree in English. But Phil’s eyes were not always on the books or the ball; they were usually looking to the sky....

    If you could sum up Happy, Happy, Happy in three words, what would they be?

    What did you like best about this story?

    Just listening to it was so enlightening. Phil has maintained his core values in a world that that is not so easy to do.


    What does Al Robertson and Phil Robertson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They begin it to life!

    Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever. Joyland is a brand-new novel and has never previously been published.

She's a high school dropout, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and has a police record a mile long. But when she's made into a zombie after a car crash, her addictions disappear, except for her all-consuming need to stay "alive".

    The narrator was excellent she made Angel Crawford "POP" from the book. I could not wait to go to bed to listen ever night. The story was great and you can not help but fall in love with Angel and her journey.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Life as a White Trash Zombie?

    Being with Angel as she became and embraced being a zombie, she made me laugh and she made me proud. Angel Crawford is to Zombies what Sookie Stackhouse is to Vampires but cranked up to 10!!!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All of it!!!

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Would you consider the audio edition of 11-22-63 to be better than the print version?

    Craig Wasson did a wonderful job, made me feel a part of it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jake/George he was the story and I loved the way he was with every one in the story. Made me wish he was real, he truly wanted to make everything better.


    Which character – as performed by Craig Wasson – was your favorite?

    Jake/George


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

    Yes although to long to do so.


    Any additional comments?

    The ending was sad, after every thing that Jake had done and it was worse. I would like to think in the end they do stay together.
