Excellent alternative history, showing us the life of the McCoy who saved Edith Keeler.

Honest, funny and engaging. I love John Hodgman‘s writing voice - and also love his reading voice. This was a great pick to experience as an audiobook.

Enjoying this. Poetic and dense and fascinating.

Really enjoying this audiobook. What a wonderful woman she was.

Just finished this and enjoyed it. But mostly I'm thrilled to have finished another page in the notebook I've been keeping of every book I've read since 1987.

I love audiobooks. This one was so fun. Well read. Horrifying in its retro attitude toward women. And yet undeniably entertaining. I likely would've never picked up an actual paperback but having the audiobook in the library Hoopla app made it easy to jump in and I'm glad I did.

I needed that. Thank you to my friend who recommended it. And thank you Liz Gilbert for writing it.

Fun dip into nerdy waters. Short, easy listen. Narrator did a fine job.

Was surprised when the 109 crew was rescued and there was still half a book left. Doyle continues with the saga by following the story of the story itself, and how the 109 saga shaped the rest of Kennedy's life. Really enjoyed this audiobook.

Scored this and a few other Dr Who novels at a used book store today. Look forward to jumping into them.

The essay "Piece" Be With You by Greg Frumholtz really spoke to me, brought me a little calm amid the current world turmoil.

Slow read of Hamilton on my phone when I'm in hurry-up-and-wait situations. Now reading while I wait for my to-go order, this quote is sadly chilling.

Is this guy's voice distinctive? Sure. Was it entertaining? You bet your ass it was.

My 10 year old son took this down from my shelf and asked if he could bring it to read at school. Yes. Yes, son, you can.

Enjoyed listening to this. But the last chapter or two, in which she describes her hopes for the future, were heartbreaking in light of recent events.

One of these from my TBR audiobook list (in the excellent Hoopla app) will be my next listen, likely the Celeste Ng (though I'm not sure I'm emotionally strong enough to handle that one right now). #readjanuary #thismonthstbr @RealLifeReading

What a wonderfully original voice. Just started listening and already loving this audiobook because of the author's voice alone.

The Ice Harvest: A Novel | Scott Phillips

Audiobook. Narrator was very good. Story itself was sort of strange and meandering, not really building suspense in a very traditional way, but it got me to keep listening. Ending was unexpected.

Christmas in Plains: Memories | Jimmy Carter, Amy Carter

Quite enjoyed this short audiobook. Carter's journey is really amazing and I loved hearing about his modest childhood Christmas celebrations and how much the holiday meant to his family over the years.

Abandoned the audiobook pretty early. Was just a rambling collection of gossipy anecdotes about old Hollywood figures, most of which didn't even involve Roger Moore.
