  • Skinny Bitch

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 7 mins)
    • By Rory Freedman, Kim Barnouin
    • Narrated By Renee Raudman
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Not your typical boring diet book, this is a tart-tongued, no-holds-barred wakeup call to all women who want to be thin. With such blunt advice as "soda is liquid Satan" and "you are a total moron if you think the Atkins Diet will make you thin", it's a rallying cry for all savvy women to start eating healthy and looking radiant. Unlike standard diet books, it actually makes the reader laugh out loud with its truthful, smart-mouthed revelations.

    Erica Marie says: "I stopped drinking soda immediately after"
    "Interesting and captivating journey through food"

    Hilariously written and highly enjoyable. It should come with a warning about one chapter's very graphic descriptions of how meat is raised, handled and slaughtered. Seriously not for the squeamish. So many really good insights that aside from that one issue, it's a great read (listen).

  • The Help

    • UNABRIDGED (18 hrs and 19 mins)
    • By Kathryn Stockett
    • Narrated By Jenna Lamia, Bahni Turpin, Octavia Spencer, and others
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    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!"
    "Absolutely Delightful!!!"

    So sad to see the story end. But enjoyed every single minute of listening to the cast of characters... so beautifully narrated.

  • 101 Ways to Transform Your Life

    • UNABRIDGED (57 mins)
    • By Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
    • Narrated By Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

    On this inspirational audiobook, best-selling author Dr. Wayne W. Dyer offers you 101 ways to make your life more fulfilling and enjoyable. You'll love listening to Dr. Dyer's transformational thoughts.

    Sherri says: "Easy Listen"

    Oh Dr. Dyer, I would be such a better person if I simply played this over and over again every day of my life... or if I lived next door to you in Hawaii. =)

    There are some repetitions of fad sayings through some of the 101 ways... but put into the context of using them to actually become more in tune with our world and ourselves... they take on a deeper meaning.

    Of course, having Dr Dyer as the narrator is a huge plus. His voice has a calming spiritual nature and tone which adds to the pleasure of listening to this audiobook.

  • The Wisdom of Joseph Campbell

    • ORIGINAL (5 hrs and 12 mins)
    • By Joseph Campbell, Michael Toms
    • Narrated By Joseph Campbell, Michael Toms

    Over a span of 12 years (1975 to 1987), New Dimensions Radio host Michael Toms recorded conversations between the late Joseph Campbell (author of The Power of Myth) and himself, during which time they developed a close friendship. In these stimulating conversations, central questions in the search for understanding and knowledge of the spiritual universe in which we live are explored.

    C. Weidner says: "What wisdom!!!"
    "What wisdom!!!"

    I didn't know what to expect since this is a collection of 'radio' programs and speeches... but WOW what a powerful mind and spirit expanding experience.

    We are hearing more of Joseph's message and ideas now through other spiritual leaders yet his is so genuine and humble. The fact that these took place in the late 70's and 80's gets me asking... where was I then? I only wish I could have experienced this man's spirit and message while he was alive.

    I enjoyed every minute of this collection and HIGHLY RECOMMEND it.

  • Me Talk Pretty One Day

    • ABRIDGED (5 hrs and 51 mins)
    • By David Sedaris
    • Narrated By David Sedaris

    David Sedaris' collection of essays - including live recordings! - tells a most unconventional life story. With every clever turn of a phrase, Sedaris brings a view and a voice like no other to every unforgettable encounter. You can also listen to Sedaris in an interview with Terry Gross on Fresh Air.

    Amazon Customer says: "You will ROFL"
    "Bizarre and fun - LOVE it"

    I find myself laughing out loud in sort of a snort and chortle way... completely unexpected. This book takes you on a wild and wonderfully colorful journey through this bizarre author's life/mind/family. I absolutely LOVE this book and HIGHLY recommend it.

    It was recommended to me a few years ago by my very intelligent and highly evolved daughter (she's single and gorgeous if anyone is interested!) My only regret (about this book, not about life in general) is that I waited so long to get it. I am seriously looking forward to reading the rest of his works. YOU'LL LOVE IT.

  • Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India, and Indonesia

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 52 mins)
    • By Elizabeth Gilbert
    • Narrated By Elizabeth Gilbert
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    Kerry says: "Witty and Wonderful"
    "Take me with you... is what you'll be saying!"

    Liz Gilbert is incredibly adept at reading her own material and bringing life to it. This book is a joy to listen to. I felt transported to lands far away and LOVED her description of people, places, things (especially the food!!!) and her own humbling experience as she journeyed to find herself. Loved it!!!

  • Activating the Law of Attraction

    • UNABRIDGED (48 mins)
    • By Christine Sherborne
    • Narrated By Billy Squire

    In this recording you will discover how to utilize the law of attraction and allow the best things into your life by freeing yourself from the negative thoughts and feelings that attract the opposite of what you want. The law of attraction states that whatever you think about with emotion will be drawn into your life.

    Amazon Customer says: "It has fine tuned my Manifestation Skills 100%"
    "Fascinating if not a little off focus"

    This is a really good book whose focus could have been a bit more redeeming. Is it really all about my wants and needs or could we have been given more insight into how to harness the law of attraction not only for ourselves but for the world. Still.. not a bad read (listen).
