Lianne Burwell I'm about to start listening to Churchill's Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare: The Mavericks Who Plotted Hitler's Defeat from the library. It looks like a lot of fun.

Dave I found "Short History of Nearly Everything" to be unlistenable. Terrible narrator!


Mayke (acozyliving)☕️ Sounds great!

Adam Shields I finished reading The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism. https://www.audible.com/pd/History/Th...

I have a hard time saying it was a great or excellent book based on content. But it was very well written and helpful. So many books on Audible that are good for finding out more about history.
