Morning Meanderings…Audio Mid Week – “Whatcha Listening to?”


Good morning!  Happy Wednesday!  Hazah and flowers to you all!  Ok… no idea why I am giddy.. maybe because it is my first break in my half marathon training and I did not have to run this morning… maybe it is because I am going to the cabin in two days with friends to bike ride and that is exciting too…. I really don’t know…

Today is mid-week through audio book week and today we are supposes to answer the questions provided by Jen at Devourer Of Books:


Current/most recent audiobook:

1jI am listening to three right now.  The Last Original Wide is on my phone – its a fun one!

Is This Tomorrow is in my car…. interesting…

And I am just starting Inferno this morning when I get ready for work.  A friend of mine who is in a different book club read it and said they really enjoyed it and now several of my other friends are reading it too… I am curious, I have enjoyed what I have read of Dan Brown in the past.




Current/most recent favorite audiobook:

1a3If we are talking recent audio, I am going to have to go with Quiet.  I took away so much on this non fiction books about introverts.  Incredible listen.




Favorite narrator you’ve discovered recently:

Hmmmmm….. I dont know about favorite but The Good House was narrated by Mary Beth Hurt and I loved how well she portrayed the characters!


One title from your TBL (to be listened) stack, or your audio wishlist:

1a5Celebrating the healing power of food and the magic of New York City, A Place at the Table follows the lives of three seekers who come together in the understanding that when you embrace the thing that makes you different, you become whole. A Place at the Table tells the story of three unforgettable characters whose paths converge in a storied Manhattan café: Bobby, a young gay man from Georgia who has been ostracized by his family; Amelia, a wealthy Connecticut woman whose life is upended when a family secret comes to light; and Alice, an African-American chef from North Carolina whose heritage is the basis of a renowned cookbook but whose past is a mystery to those who know her. These characters are exiles – from homeland, from marriage, from family. While they all find companionship and careers through cooking, they hunger for the deeper nourishment of communion. As the narrative sweeps from a freed-slave settlement in 1920s North Carolina to Manhattan during the deadly AIDS epidemic of the 1980s to the well-heeled hamlet of contemporary Old Greenwich, Connecticut, Bobby, Amelia, and Alice are asked to sacrifice everything they ever knew or cared about to find authenticity and fulfillment.

I am excited about this one.  I think it sounds really good! 



So that’s the audio post for today.  Stop by Devourer Of Books and see what others are saying to these questions… I know I will be!  😀

I am off, full day at work, a meeting afterwards for camp planning and a gym date tonight with my friend Kate.

If you listen to audio, I would love to hear how you would answer these questions – better yet, write a posy and add it to the link at Devourer of Books.

Enjoy your day 😀

  1. I so second Quiet. My introvert family members and friends concur. I think the thing I took away most was the argument that just because people are the loudest in a group doesn’t mean they always have the best ideas. I also was fascinated not only with with her interviews at schools, churches and corporations, but also how she showed introverts process problems differently, and what they can bring to the table if we extroverts will shut up for a few seconds to listen to them. 🙂 . Very thorough yet easy listen.

    1. I liked the part you mention too. My boss tells me each year at my review that I need to work on building volunteer teams to assist me with projects. And sometimes I do, but in the audio I learned that being introverted can mean that you prefer to work on things alone. That is true a lot for me….

  2. I’m planning to use an audible credit for The Last Original Wife. I think The Good House is one of my favorite audios of the year and maybe ever. Mary Beth Hurt’s performance is fantastic.

  3. I’ve only read one Dan Brown book – The DaVinci Code. I really want to read the rest and am thinking audio might be the way to go! Have you listened to all of them?

    A Place at the Table sounds really good – I’m going to see if my library has it in!

  4. These all sound good…I read and loved The Good House, and Is This Tomorrow? is on Sparky….just waiting.

    Enjoy your running and bike riding…do you listen when you’re doing these activities?

  5. I am currently listening to Ellen Burstyn’s “Lessons in Becoming Myself”. What a life this lady had lead so far. Abusive childhood, scary and sad things happening while filming “The Exorcist”, married to a crazy husband ! Whew ! And I’m not even done yet !

  6. I finished Life After LIfe by Kate Atkinson ( a free audio book from BEA, thank you BEA!!). I didn’t want the lives of Ursula to end. The narrator, Fenella Woolgar, has a wonderful voice and did an extremely good job of giving the little “extra” to the reading. I travel a good deal for work and at times I sat in the parking lot for a few extra minutes because I didn’t want to leave the story. I would recommend this audio book to everyone!

  7. As an introvert I really need to check out the audio of Quiet. I’d considered picking up the book but if the audio is so well done I’d rather go that route.

    A Place at the Table does sound good!

Hmmmm... what do you think?
