Just Books and AudioBooks

AudioBooks on CD

Utopia Experiment by Kyle Mills.  12 CDs at 13.5 hours.  Thriller in Afghanistan where the U.S. is trying to keep technology secret.  Yeah.  Good luck with stopping technology from changing and growing.

Gate Thief by Orson Scott Card.  10 CDs at 12 hours.  Sequel to the novel Lost Gate.  Aliens living on Earth or something.

Frozen Solid by James M. Tabor.  8 CDs at 9.5 hours.  A novel of the Saylor family and their 120-year-old house with no decent insulation during a Wisconsin winter.

The Highlanders by Gerry Davis.  3 CDs at 3.5 hours.  A Doctor Who novel with the Doctor showing up at the Battle of Culloden between the Scottish and English in 1746.

Large Print

Fuse by Julianna Baggott.  "Book 2 of the Pure Trilogy." Looks like a romance but the flyleaf sounds fantasy-like.

The Woman From Paris by Santa Montefiore.  ...has to watch her step for all the dog poop on the Parisian sidewalks.

Bad Blood by Dana Stabenow.  Novel featuring Alaskan lady Kate Shugak catching killers.

My One Square Inch of Alaska by Sharon Short.  Girl's younger brother wins a square inch of Alaska through a cereal promotion.  She takes him there when he gets sick.

Storyteller by Jodi Picoult.  Picoult is a writing machine.  Beep, whir-whir, beep, ka-chunk.

The View From Here by Cindy Myers.  Woman's husband leaves her and then her long absent father wills her a Colorado gold mine.  Woman goes to CO and has the kind of life experiences that these kind of books love.

The Drowning House by Elizabeth Black.  I'll take the title literally and assume there is a flood.

Good House by Ann Leary.  Alcoholic north of Boston hangs out with someone else and "this darkly comic novel takes a chilling turn."

The Temptation of Your Touch by Teresa Medeiros.  Edwardian romance.  I'm guessing on the "Edwardian" part since no year is listed.

Snow White Must Die by Nele Neuhaus.  Dang right, that woman is a trouble maker.

World's Strongest Librarian

I dislike deadlifts because I always pull a muscle.  I should start a daily stretching regime.  But, I won't.
