listen up and read this, people

I have been "reading" a lot of audio books recently. I like the freedom of the audio books – I can "read" them while doing things around the house, while shopping, working out, or other things.

I am a big Stephen fan. On my "reading" list are a lot of short stories by Stephen King (great to fall asleep by), A Briefer History of Time and The Universe in a Nutshell by Stephen Hawking, and I Am America and So Can You by Stephen Colbert. I also got some books by Ernest Hemingway, Irvine Welsh, Nora Roberts, Khaled Hosseini, Frederick Forsyth, a collection of science fiction, both of Barack's books, and several others.

But back to Stephen.

I Am America and So Can You:

LOL! LMAO! OMG! It is HILARIOUS! (but perhaps not really suitable for the kids, some of the language in it would definitely make it an R-rated movie on the big screen).

I highly recommend it.

And if you email me, or let me know in the comments, I am willing to "lend" any of my mp3's to my friends. Most email can handle these.

Your friend,


I may post more about the books as time goes on, but not so much that it starts that to feel like homework. But if you have questions about anything specific, I am willing to respond to those.


  1. Oooh - you can e-mail me almost anything! I'm uploading (downloading?) The Oxford Murders on audiobook right now. I checked it out at the library ... but, for some reason, my computer refuses to recognize disc 2.

    Also - if you want, I can e-mail you any of Stephenie Meyer's books (Twilight series and The Host) or The Appeal by John Grisham.

  2. I even think Stephenie Meyer would fit into your "Stephen" reading list!

  3. that's the name of a psychotic ex boyfriend of mine. ach. Ooooo I love Stephen Colbert though. Hilarious!! I watch him all the time. (can you believe, I have never listened to an audio book? Never.)
