  • How Evan Broke His Head and Other Secrets

    Evan had a hit single, but that was 10 years ago. Thirty-one now, hes drifting, playing in a local band and teaching middle-aged men to coax music from an electric guitar. Now, 14 years later, he experiences unplanned parenthood when he undertakes to raise the resentful teenage son hes never known. Off beat and disarming, How Evan Broke His Head and Other Secrets portrays a contemporary American family with unfailing honesty.

    Garth Stein is always Real and doesn't hold back. He keeps my interest and paints a picture of modern real life.

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    John Grisham still has what it takes to grab me at the first page and keep my attention. I have never been disappointed with anything he has written. This book stands well next to the Bretheren, and the Client.

  • The Art of Racing in the Rain

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a drakia descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form.

    Where does The Edgar Allan Poe Audio Collection rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    right up there


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love a good classic, often off colored like Poe. It's nice for me to get lost in an afternoon with something different.


    What about Vincent Price and Basil Rathbone ’s performance did you like?

    Vincent Price brings the story to life. His voice makes the whole experience.
