I started listening to audio books a few years back. To help keep track of what I've already "read" I keep a record in the notes section on my Facebook. I shared this list last year but since then it has obviously grown so I thought I would share it again.

On another note, my grandmother went to the hospital the other day with a UTI and an infected bed sore. She is feeling a lot better now that they have her pumped with antibiotics. She will have surgery on her lower back where the bed sore is on Saturday. My mom said she's getting back to her chatty self already. I'm so thankful. Apparently the infection from the bed sore was what was making her so drawn and ill on Sunday when we went to see her but nobody knew at the time. Please send prayers and positive thoughts her way on Saturday. I'll be able to get back down to see her on Sunday morning.

Also I have been doing searches and reading, getting inspiration for team challenges and ways on working on self love and self esteem and body image. I'm so thankful I started the team. I really think it will be good for me. I think my low self esteem is my biggest hurdle in life. This has already been such a big help for me.

    I love audio books. They make my ride to work sane.
    Glad that your grandmother is getting well.
    Take care.

    When I worked I used to listen to audiotapes in my car while commuting. Easy for me to find them since I was a librarian! The best one I ever heard was a mystery called "the Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie" by Alan Bradley. The actress that reads the part of Flavia de Luce was fabulous. They are really quirky books set in England and loads of fun.

    I found some audio books disappointing if I didn't like the narrator. Ironically, some of the worst narrators are authors who read their own books. An author doesn't an actor make. That's for sure. Thanks for sharing your list. I am now getting into e-books since my friend bought me a wonderful e-reader but alas, I still gravitate to hard covers as well. Currently, reading "Death Comes to Pemberly" by P.D. James a mystery that is set in Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Elizabeth Bennett comes across a murder. Fantastic device and I love Jane Austen.

    And it's taken a few years to build this list. I check them out at the library and listen to them as I do chores, walk on the treadmill, in the car, etc.

    What a list!

    WOW! That's a long list of books!$$$ Way to go!

    I'm glad they finally discovered what was making your grandmother so sick. I'll definitely say a prayer for her on Saturday.

    At first I thought what a ton of books! Then I read the list and realized I've read a majority of these as well.
