Nine months worth of audio books . . .

In April, 2010, I joined Audible.com and began listening to audio books.  I found audio books to be very freeing, because I could let the story run as background to whatever else I may be doing, like sewing.  Here in alphabetic order is a list of the books I listened to in 2010:
  1. Abarat, by Clive Barker.
  2. Abarat:  Days of Magic, Nights of War, by Clive Barker.
  3. Crush It!, by Gary Vaynerchuk.
  4. Dean Koontz's Frankenstein:  Dead and Alive, by Dean Koontz.
  5. Destroyer of Worlds, by Larry Niven and Edward M. Lerner.
  6. Dexter Is Delicious, by Jeff Lindsay.
  7. The Engines of God, by Jack McDevitt.
  8. The Fifth Elephant:  Discworld #24, by Terry Pratchett.
  9. Frankenstein:  Lost Souls, by Dean Koontz.
  10. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, by Stieg Larsson.
  11. The Girl Who Played With Fire, by Stieg Larsson.
  12. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, by Stieg Larsson.
  13. The Goal, by Eliyahu M. Goldratt and Jeff Cox.
  14. Going Postal:  Discworld #29, by Terry Pratchett.
  15. Holiday Classics by O. Henry, by O. Henry.
  16. I Am Legend, by Richard Matheson
  17. The Lost Symbol, by Dan Brown.
  18. Making Money:  Discworld #31, by Terry Pratchett.
  19. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, John Berendt.
  20. The Mote in God's Eye, by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle.
  21. Night Watch:  Discworld #27, by Terry Pratchett.
  22. No Excuses!, by Brian Tracy.
  23. The Order of Odd-Fish, by James Kennedy.
  24. The Passage, by Justin Cronin.
  25. Stranger in a Strange Land, by Robert A. Heinlein.
  26. Under the Dome, by Stephen King.
  27. The Windup Girl, by Paolo Bacigalupi.
Do you recognize any of these titles??  Have you read any of these titles??

Except for Numbers 3 and 22, they are all fiction, science fiction, and fantasy.  I guess you'd consider Numbers 3 and 22 as "self-help" (I've already listened to both of 'em more than once).

Here's a list of what's on tap for 2011 (so far):
  1. The 4-Hour Workweek, by Timothy Ferriss.
  2. The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexandre Dumas.
  3. Dexter by Design, by Jeff Linsday.
  4. Flashforward, by Robert J. Sawyer.
  5. Footfall, by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle.
  6. METAtropolis, by Jay Lake, Tobias Buckell, Elizabeth Bear, John Scalzi, and Karl Schroeder.
  7. METAtropilis:  Cascadia, by Jay Lake, Mary Robinette Kowal, Elizabeth Bear, Ken Scholes, Karl Schroeder, and Tobias Buckell.
  8. Pandora's Star, by Peter F. Hamilton.
  9. A Princess of Landover, by Terry Brooks.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a book to listen to . . .

  2. I would be interested in what you think of the 4-hour work week. Part of me wants to outsource stuff, and part of me thinks he full of BS.....

  3. I love Dean Koontz books. Have you read/heard the Odd Series?

  4. Try Charlaine Harris, "Dead until Dark."

  5. @Linda: yeah, I think he's full of it, LOL!!

    @Brooke: I've read two of the three Odd books . . .
