    In America's Gulf Coast region, where grounded oil tankers are being broken down for parts, Nailer, a teenage boy, works the light crew, scavenging for copper wiring just to make quota - and hopefully live to see another day. But when, by luck or chance, he discovers an exquisite clipper ship beached during a recent hurricane, Nailer faces the most important decision of his life: Strip the ship for all it's worth or rescue its lone survivor, a beautiful and wealthy girl who could lead him to a better life.

    Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man - a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Now, he is going to prove that for him, there's no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive.

    Armed only with a frying pan and her common sense, Tiffany Aching, a young witch-to-be, is all that stands between the monsters of Fairyland and the warm, green Chalk country that is her home. Forced into Fairyland to seek her kidnapped brother, Tiffany allies herself with the Chalk's local Nac Mac Feegle, aka the Wee Free Men, a clan of sheep-stealing, sword-wielding, six-inch-high blue men who are as fierce as they are funny.

    Amazing stories. Amazing writing. Amazing narrator. Treat yourself - get all the Wee Free Men and Tiffany Aching books at once, and just go for it!

    If you listen while you drive, you will find yourself seeking out back roads, alternate routes, picking the furthest parking space...

    If you listen while you exercise, prepare to walk further, jog more miles, lift longer...

    If you listen while you do chores, your house will be spotless, laundry folded promptly, perhaps even your car cleaned!

    enjoy -

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    An incredible book. Along with the characters, you navigate the twists and turns of a very, very complicated relationship. Absolutely nothing is as it seems - and the final outcome is as inevitable as it is disturbing.

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    Craig Johnson has won multiple awards and earned starred reviews from Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, and Kirkus Reviews for his New York Times best-selling Walt Longmire mysteries. Embarking on his eighth adventure in As the Crow Flies, Sheriff Longmire is searching the Cheyenne Reservation for a site to host his daughter’s wedding, when he sees a woman fall to her death. Teaming up with beautiful tribal chief Lolo Long, Walt sets out to investigate the suspicious death.

    Story

    Don't read this one first, you might give up on a wonderful series. Usually, I find excuses to drive around so I can listen to Walt Longmire mysteries.This one was lacking...
    The plot was not gripping, way too much wedding drama. I found myself asking my iPod why Walt didn't just ask Ruby to make some phone calls and save everyone a lot of trouble?
    And there is another unlikely romance between Vietnam era men and women in their late 20s. I find it dubious, to say the least.

    Meet Harold Fry, recently retired. He lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by almost everything he does, even down to how he butters his toast. Little differentiates one day from the next. Then one morning the mail arrives, and within the stack is a letter addressed to Harold from a woman he hasn't seen or heard from in 20 years. Queenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye. Harold pens a quick reply and, leaving Maureen to her chores, heads to the corner mailbox. But then Harold has a chance encounter, one that convinces him that he absolutely must deliver his message to Queenie in person.

    This was an amazing book. The descriptions of Harold's interactions with people along the way are by turns laugh-out-loud funny, tender, insightful, and painfully sad.
    A heart-wrenching and yet joyful story of a family that lost its way and then found it again,

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a really, really good series. Makes you want to book your next vacation to Wyoming, find the Busy Bee Cafe and wait to see these folks wander in.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I have to say, Dog really shines in this one. Along with Butch and Sundance.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    That cowboy drawl of Walt's, the Bear's very complete sentences, and Vic's Philly profaneness are all right there - just wouldn't be the same in printed page.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Sex, drugs, and man's best friend

    The thrilling new Virgil Flowers novel from the #1 New York Times best-selling author. The superstore chain PyeMart has its sights set on a Minnesota river town, but two very angry groups want to stop it: local merchants, fearing for their businesses, and environmentalists, predicting ecological disaster. The protests don't seem to be slowing the project, though, until someone decides to take matters into his own hands.
