I like to listen to books when I jog. Since I can't find all the audio books I have on my 'to read list', I was wondering if I could get a few suggestion of good reads to expand my list.
I've started to get hooked on audio books that I borrow from the public library but am really peed off at the way many of the discs have been mishandled - causing me to have had to return a few, unread. I tend to prefer the abridged novels.
I took out Tami Hoag's [i]KILL THE MESSENGER[/i] in a 5-disc and 11-disc set (different narrators] It's a novel you might enjoy.
Some of these may have been on audio tape. All, I enjoyed: At all Costs, The Woman and the Ape, Are you Afraid of the Dark?, Miracle Cure,(exceptionally good)
Nothing too heavy, but sorta therapeutic.

Good ? Michelle,
No harm stimulating discussion. That's what we're about, but after responding to your opening post, I noted in another thread, that you appear to be in the book business.
I won't talk about "genre" but another audio book that I did enjoy was [i]Angels and Demons[/i]. You can easily access author and publisher - as with the other titles I referred you to.
In non-fiction, if you should come upon anything on Web Message Board Etiquette, please share.
I’m usually just a reader of discussions so when I posted the initial link on other thread, I wanted to be upfront about who was posting it. That’s why I created the user that I have.
I haven’t had too many problems with the audio books from the Ottawa public libraries. I got a few skips but that’s it.
Angels and Demons was actually the first audio book that got me hooked on the concept. I had tried it a few times before but I always seem to have to go back a chapter since I was missing details.
Thanks for the list.
