Just when I think I'm going to possibly run out of new audios to tell you about, I am buried in an avalanche of them. Between library deliveries and a shipment from Penguin Audio, I've got my job cut out for me in loading them all. Here are a few recent additions:
Cooked - Michael Pollan (received from Penguin Audio)
Description from Amazon: Pollan explores the previously uncharted territory of his own kitchen. Here, he discovers the enduring power of four classical elements - fire, water, air and earth - to transform the stuff of nature into delicious things to eat and drink. Apprenticing himself to a succession of culinary masters, Pollan learns how to grill with fire, cook with liquid, back bread, and ferment everything from cheese to beer.
Narrated by: Michael Pollan

Shadow of Night - Deborah Harkness (received from Penguin Audio a long time ago, but just got it back after loaning it out)
Description from Amazon: Installment #2 of All Souls Trilogy. Book One, "A Discovery of Witches", introduced Diana Bishop, Oxford scholar and reluctant witch, and the handsome geneticist and vampire Matthew Clairmont. Together they found themselves at the center of a supernatural battle over an enchanted manuscript known as Ashmole 782. Now Diana and Matthew are plunged into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge and a coterie of Matthew's old friends. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens.
Narrated by: Jennifer Ikeda (same as Book One)

The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald (downloaded digital copy from library)
I don't think I need to post a summary here do I? Because I really want to re-read this before I see the movie (which releases this coming weekend) I will be listening to this one next. I think the last time I read it was in high school. The audio isn't long. I can knock it out with a solid house cleaning and a couple of trips to school and back.
