59438 Audible is great, have used the library for a few. I tend to read more SF/Fantasy/Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy stuff, which doesn't tend to be in audio in our library.

I have tons of audiobooks. DH has just got into them, commuting 1 1/2 hours each way. He is working his way through my Terry Pratchett collection.

He was a big fan of the HP audio books, stephen fry is an excellent narrator. We burnt out the cassettes over a few years and invested in CD's to replace them.

59438 As not very sporty types both me and dh have been hooked. it's been really good to see the positive competitive spirit.

CSI Miami is back, I've been stashing up for a run of Horatio-ness.

I've also been banking the walking dead, but for some reason I started watching it and got really emotional so have left it on bank for a while now.

I've been watching two box set DH bought me for my birthday, season 1-2 of Stargate Universe [pretty good, like an updated Startrek Voyager, which I love] and In Plain Sight, we already watched season 1-2 but the UK don't get the next seasons for a year, so DH bought season 3-4 from the US.

Can't wait for Doctor Who to return.

59438 Jen, if you want it PM me your address and I'll send it your way. Not a keeper but it was an interesting fairytale retelling, though didn't enjoy it as much as McKinley's retellings.

I went to the book shop in clarkes village and came home with three for a fiver.

The Maze Runner by James Dashner
The Death Cure also by James Dashner

Wither by DeStefano

I've read the Maze Runner but DH can't remember it. I swapped and got Scorch Trials a couple of weeks ago, so now feel set up. The last book was just to make it up to a fiver.

59438 Couldn't resist a bargain at a car boot sale . 50p a book so had 8 of them. DH wasn't paying attention so managed to buy and stash them without him noticing. One book I've been looking out for Ash by Malinda Lo the others are YA i have not come across before.

before DD I'd finish them just to say that I tried, now I just send them off to the charity shop, feeling slightly guilty if they are awful... kinda like the

The New Contented Little Baby Book The Secret To Calm And Confident Parenting by Gina Ford

people gave to me. I just felt that some poor new mummy would pick it up and think that this is what motherhood should be.

59438 Audible offered the first chapter of How To Be A Woman for free. It was not what I was expecting and doesn't tempt me to read anything else by her.

My FiL loaned me the The Da Vinci Code and I just didn't get into it. Not my genre. The film was alright.

One book I hated The Road and the Hills had the worst SPAG ever, how that book made it to the shelf amazes me. I could not finish it, my hand was itching to get a red pen out.

The other was because the book was all world building and no plot. It drove me mad that it just didn't seem to go anywhere. And the cover was beautiful Firethorn.

I hated listening to Green by Jay Lake. The blurb was nothing like what was in the book. His overuse of the word 'sweetpocket' drove me mad and the lesbian love scenes that popped out of nowhere were something out of a teenage boys torgid mind. Just spent lots of time grumbling about how crap the audiobook was and still kept listening.

59438 I bought 8 Nevil Shute books in the charity shop and had to do a quick reread of Pied Piper. FiL asked me to pick up any Shute I come across as he want's to rebuld his collection. he is currently a very happy man.
