6417 It seems the UK version costs less. Do you know if there is any difference?

6417 Wow! I just googled it & that's one expensive book. Congrats!

6417 I did get to read it & enjoyed it. Paralleled my own experience with REH's books amazingly well.

6417 Wow! Very cool. I wonder who nominated us. We didn't start the group nor do we contribute the most content, though. I used Bill Thom's "Howard Works" to fill in my spreadsheet of REH's books. I'd vote for him over us.

6417 This is an oldy, but a goody & is funny. Jo Walton writing about "The Suck Fairy" who visits beloved books & sucks the fun out of them.

6417 That one isn't in most of the collections, but it is funny. Even more overblown than most.

6417 I'm sure they've saved the material in electronic format, but I agree. Limiting access like that isn't a great idea.

6417 He's a hoot.

6417 Thanks! Tempting. I joined the foundation & liked them on FB, at any rate. Been meaning to do that for ages.

I think it takes some practice. When I first started listening, it was rereading mostly & I did have some trouble focusing. Now I have no problem, though. Look at some of my reviews of nonfiction books on the audio shelf (1audio, 2nonfiction) & you'll see I retain a fair amount. Here's my last nonfiction listen review which was an overview of forensics:

Not every book is good to listen to. Ayn Rand uses too many $5 words in very precise ways, sometimes not their primary definition, so I have to think about her words too much. Popular science, mystery-thrillers, & such are fine, though.

Some books are great to listen to, even better than regular reading. I've managed to get through quite a few I wouldn't have been able to read as a 'real' book. The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin & Pride and Prejudice are 2 examples.

6417 I think I have most of his stories, some in several editions, & I think I'm only a casual collector in some of the company around here. No worries, just curious. Enjoy & look around. There are some topics here with a lot of good info.

6417 Welcome, Lorenzo. Are you a collector or just a casual fan of REH?
