    Five years have passed since the orphan girl Anne Shirley came to live in the childless home of Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert. She has returned to Avonlea to teach in the same village school where she herself was taught. Her earlier friends, Diana Barry, Jane Andrews, Priscilla Gray, and Gilbert Blyth, have also become teachers at neighboring village schools.

    I loved reading Anne's books many, many years ago. Such a treat to find them on audio with a wonderful narrator. I've enjoyed several of Susan O'Malley's narrations and this was a joy to listen to. I've going to be listening to the rest of Anne's tales.

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    Overall

    I hated it when the book ended! I was totally drawn into this magical world from the very beginning. I can't wait til the next book comes out!

  • Tepper Isn't Going Out

    Tepper enjoys sitting in his car, reading his newspaper in peace. His car always seems to be parked in a prime spot and other drivers want to know if Tepper is going out. He isn't. This drives some people crazy - including the mayor - but leads others to think Tepper harbors some hidden wisdom. The tale that emerges is "refreshing and completely likable."

    George says: "Dog Stopping Funny"
    "Good Book - Lousy Listen"
    Overall

    I thought I'd enjoy listening to the author reading his book - I've listened to him on Public Radio and enjoyed him immensely - read some of his other works and enjoyed those.

    His voice is enjoyable for about 20 minutes and then I just could not listen to him anymore. His voice just can't keep me interested for longer than about 15 minutes.

    I tried - I really tried, but I'm getting the book to read and keep my listening to Mr Trillin on the radio.

  • Lunchroom Tales: A Natural History of the Cafetorium

    Story

    In Lunchroom Tales, Bill Harley and his band - the Troublemakers - return to the Delaware Trails Elementary School where Bill once roamed the halls as a student. They kick off their show with the song "Everyone's a Little Bit Different" - but soon, memories get the best of Bill, and he begins to recount adventures and disasters from his former days of glory (or was it torture?). Meet Mr. Hambleman, the custodian (not janitor!) and Mrs. Nottingham, the terrifying 3rd grade teacher (are teachers human, or are they a different species?), explore super cool places like the back of the bus, and enjoy Harley's engaging recreation - through song and story - of what it feels like to be a kid in school.

    People have been telling me that I need to listen to Bill Harley - and they were right. Fun listening with Bill talking and singing. I was brought back to third grade and the wonderful awful teachers I had.

    I admit - I'm a Luciaphile - I love Lucia. I read these books many years ago and picked up the audio books and was not disappointed.

    Wonderful!
