Library Loot, Audiobooks Galore
Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Marg @ ReadingAdventures and Eva at A Striped Armchair.
Here's what I got today at the library, to last for the next couple of weeks: lots of audio CDs.
1. Only one hardcover book, Whisper To the Blood, a Kate Shugak Novel by Dana Stabenow, the 16th in the mystery series. A mystery novel set in Alaska, featuring Kate Shugak of the Niniltna Native Association.
2. Two fiction audiobooks:
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, about the world of the circus and the performers there, unabridged, 10 discs. Eleven and a half hours of listening!
Digging to America by Anne Tyler, unabridged, 7 discs.
3. Three crime fiction audiobooks:
R is for Ricochet by Sue Grafton, mystery writer, unabridged, 10 discs.
Mrs. Pollifax and the Lion Killer by Dorothy Gilman, a light mystery set in Africa, no. 12 in the Mrs. Pollifax series, unabridged, 6 discs
A Fine Place for Death: a Meredith and Markby Mystery by British writer Ann Granger, a light mystery set in the Cotswolds, unabridged, 8 discs
What am I doing with all these audio CDs? Getting ready for an eye procedure next week, during which time I'll be listening rather than reading while I rest and recuperate. Why so many CDs? If I get bored with one novel, I'll just switch to another. Or listen to several at different times, depending on my mood :)
Oh, I also won an audio version of The Swan Thieves. Hope it'll arrive just in time.
I think I'll start right now, though, with Mrs. Pollifax, that indomitable lady and secret agent. Why wait?
