I’m a big fan of audiobooks.

Whether I’m driving to work or cleaning my house, if I’m by myself, I’m probably listening to an audiobook. I love being able to immerse myself in a book while still getting things done. Some would argue that this isn’t reading, but I don’t think it matters how one “reads” a book. The text is still reaching us whether we’re reading the actual words on a page or listening to someone else read those same words to us.
Here are a few of my favorites:

Cover of Grave Peril
Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files actually started my audiobook obsession. They’re read by James Marsters (Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer), and he somehow totally embodies Harry Dresden. I always recommend people start with Grave Peril, book 3 in the series, as the action and the drama really take off in this one.

 
________________________________________
Cover of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie SocietyThe Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows has multiple narrators and is just an all-around good listen! I’d start with this one if you’re on the fence about trying an audiobook.

Cover of Still LifeThe Chief Inspector Armand Gamache mysteries by Louise Penny make for great listens. They’re oddly comforting and strangely suspenseful all at the same time.

Cover of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Finally, if you haven’t listened to Jim Dale’s narration of the Harry Potter audiobooks, you’re missing out. He’s one of the best narrators in the business.

 

 

 

 

After You

After YouI just finished reading After You by Jojo Moyes. It is a sequel to the book Me Before You that the library’s Book Discussion Group read in 2014.  Have you ever liked a book so much you want to know what happens to the characters after the book ends? If you read Me Before You that’s what you get with After You.  It’s a book worthy of discussion too.  Do the characters take the paths you thought they would? Does it fall short?

Have you read a sequel to a different book that you really liked…or didn’t? What about you “Pride and Prejudice” fans? Do you have a favorite?

 

 

What books are you gifting this year?

It should come as no surprise that we think books make great gifts. Whether it’s a cookbook or the next great work of fiction, we’re always happy to give and receive them.
