Cover ArtMr. Penumbra’s 24-hour bookstore
by Sloan, Robin
Fresh, enjoyable, goofy, and like nothing on earth.   posted Jan 27, 2014 at 2:11AM

Cover ArtPortuguese irregular verbs
by McCall Smith, Alexander, 1948-
The first German Philologist Professor Doctor book about nutty academics and international miscommunication. Short romp. Just for fun.   posted Jan 27, 2014 at 2:00AM

Cover ArtThe case of the missing servant : from the files of Vish Puri, India’s "most pri
by Tarquin Hall
One of those "free vacation in a safe, cozy, yet wondrous locale"--as opposed to Dr. Siri or Bangkok 8 (they are too perilous)--this is a fun audio. Probably fine on paper, but Sam Dastor needs a listen, he surrounds you with the wonder of India, and makes the cute cozy multiple-case detective yarn well worth borrowing.   posted Jul 31, 2013 at 5:35PM

Cover ArtA pelican at Blandings [electronic resource]
There are good and bad audiobooks from PG Wodehouse. Some readers too veddy veddy precious, some happy romps! This stars the silly but brilliant voice of Brit star Nigel Lambert as the wack-a-doodle party peer Gally at Blandings Castle. While I agree Jonathan Cecil outshines him a bit, this is a pretty good way to search some very fine British satire/comic reader name. You’ll be glad you grabbed the audio book.   posted Jul 31, 2013 at 5:32PM

Cover ArtThe help [sound recording] : a novel
by Stockett, Kathryn.
Astonishingly good - I thought the audio couldn't improve on the printed version. I was wrong.   posted Mar 15, 2011 at 6:44PM
