Pictures. Words. Sounds

AudioBook on CD

Someone Knows by Lisa Scottoline. 11.5 hours on 10 CDs. This has two narrators. Woman punishes herself for a prank gone wrong 25 years ago.


The Fall of Shannara: The Stiehl Assassin by Terry Brooks. I've not read any of these Shannara books since middle school. I really enjoyed those at the time. According to the front cover there are 35 novels set in Shannara - that seems like a low number.


The Color of Time: A new history of the world: 1850-1960 by Dan jones and Marina Amaral. Brazilian lady has colorized a ton of black and white photos. Trying to get skin tones must be difficult. I know she tried to work on other colors using artifacts like uniforms, "There is no way of knowing the original hues just by looking at the different shades of grey. The only course of action is the one familiar to every historian, whatever their specialty: dig, dig, dig."
