The offerings by me aren't so great, and they have a weird DRM system by me. Good tip though.

Thanks, checking that out right now, Good deals are exactly what I'm looking for. I found the book referenced above for pretty cheap on iTunes. I think that was only because its an older book. Everywhere else that I've looked they seem to hover around the $14 - $22 price range.

^ My girlfriend (pharm sales) drives a lot for her job and frequently listens to audio books.  She likes to read a lot so being able to listen to a book while driving is a bonus for her.

I wouldn't recommend the audio books she listens to (Nicolas Sparks type crap) so I can't help you there.

Does anyone ever buy audio books? I'm about to drive from my home in Utah to visit my family in Indiana. I need some good audio book recommendations before I take this trip in December! It has to be something that will keep me awake on this long boring drive. So probably no Morgan Freeman talking about the first time he met andy dufresne.

Yeah just two weeks. I knew I had read it somewhere but it had been a long time. I search and found that I must of read that fact on Wikipedia.

(from Wikipedia)
"Coelho wrote The Alchemist in only two weeks in 1987. He explained he was able to write at this pace because the story was "already written in [his] soul".[4]

That was under the inspiration for the story section. Of course everything that we read on the internet is true (especially Wikipedia) haha I have no reason to doubt it. Its an amazing accomplishment. Enjoy the re-read!

Didn't know he wrote it under two weeks, pretty impressive. Ya I plan on reading it again here shortly as well. Towards the end I started noticing even more subtleties that are overlooked in the beginning.

I have been beasting through some easy reading in the last few days, decided to read the Hobbit to compare it to the movies and not to mention I did a book report on it in High School without actually reading it so I decided it was time. It was alright, movies obviously added much more to the story line to turn a 200 page book into 3 movies.

Then read the The Alchemist, wish I would have read it earlier in my life. Another easy read, however the story has a lot of depth. It's fictional book about realizing and seeing your true purpose in life told through the eyes of a sheepherder. One of the better books I've read.

Lastly finished the Giver, another book that seems to be required as a kid that I managed to get by without reading. Would have enjoyed it more if it clearly wasn't geared towards children, overall OK though.

Started reading the Black Count last night. Its about the true story of the Count of Monte Cristo.

Also just finished a book called One Second After by William R. Forstchen. Its a fictional story that shows what could happen to America if we were hit with an EMP weapon. It uses one small town to show the quick decline of civilization once the power goes off for an undetermined amount of time. It was terrifying to think if it ever really happened to us. I'd call this one a must read. Very eye opening and thought provoking.

On VaCa I read the Sand omnibus by Hugh Howey.  I love the way he writes, and you've heard me rave about his Silo Series in the past.  I liked the book, but was disappointed it ended where there could have just been another chapter.  Common thing with Sci-Fi me thinks.

Now I'm re-reading the 2nd book in the Millennium series: The Girl Who Played With Fire.  Damn good if you haven't read them yet!

I have some Raymond Feist books to read. 3 or more books in the series. Love his books too.

You know ppl say that reading books is good for your mind. People think that you are more educated. But I read Science Fiction books mainly so when someone thinks I'm smart for reading a lot, I don't ever understand that. Maybe my imagination might be greater than their's. (I guess I could use a green lantern ring pretty well. lol)

I liked it^. I've read most of Ken Follet's books, worth a look. It is a bit long, I'll give you that. I think they made a movie or mini series? Not seen it though.

I've just ordered Ted Simon's books about riding a triumph around the world in the 70's.

I read Chris Moneymaker's book about his World Series of Poker run. Short but fun. I liked "Positively Fifth Street" by James McManus better, besides the murder trial part.

Both of them were good because of the play by play and thought process as they progressed deeper and deeper into the WSOP.

More of a historical account than about his process per say but still some insights in that area as well.  Not as interesting as I would have hoped in that it leans towards the historical side which is not my thing...

^ Well, the 2nd 1/2 of the book wasn't as good as the first half.  it kind of ran out of steam.  Two other complaints: 1. he is constantly berating people trying to "talk gear" and give him tips and advise... yet he proves how unprepared he actually is out there.  Total hypocrisy.  2. I suddenly realized how much littering these guys do.  Cig butts, trash, and even gear is "thrown off a cliff."  it was funny at the time, then I realized they are just f'n littering.
