For the longest time, if I really wanted to read something new, and get through it quickly, my answer was "Audio". I can really plow through the audios, since I am always on-the-go. If I were to read something in print, I might get to it in two years.
Now? I'm not sure audios are a sure thing any more because I have SO MANY LOADED. Between the library, the Penguin shipments and the Penguin downloads, I was buried this past week. It really isn't a horrible problem...my iPod has 180 gig...but it may be years before I get to them all. Anyway, here are a few of the many I added last week:
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey (received from Penguin Audio digital download)
Synopsis: The first of a trilogy, and on EW's Must List. After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave only one rule applies: trust no one.
Now, it's the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them.
Narrators: Brandon Espinoza, Phoebe Strole
Listening length: 12 hours and 41 minutes
Tapestry of Fortunes by Elizabeth Berg (received from Orange County Library)
Synopsis: Four women venture into their pasts in order to shape their futures, fates and fortunes.
Narrator: Barbara Caruso
Listening length: 7 hours and 5 minutes
Looking for Me by Beth Hoffman (received from Penguin Audio)
Synopsis: A Southern novel of family and antiques. Brilliantly melds together themes of family, hope, loss, and a mature once-in-a-lifetime kind of love.
I also must say that Beth is one of the nicest women EVER and I would read this without even knowing what it is about. So flipping excited.
Narrator: Jenna Lamia
Listening length: 12 hours
