I have currently 93 books in Audible largely fantasy ones (Only real regret was getting the Game of thrones ones I didn't really like the narration in it)
I've got quite a few regrets about my library. I'd offer the following advice to anyone starting out in the world of audiobooks:

- listen to the free 5-minute sampler. Hopefully, this will weed out narrators you won't get on with.
- Don't get too hung up on length :)eek:). I made this mistake (thinking I'm getting more value for money) and have a couple of books in my library that I'm not sure I'll ever get around to listening to. That said, the Sherlock Holmes collection is pretty good and you can treat it like lots of different books, not one big long one.
- Check your local library (mine uses the Borrow Box app) for ***les before spending a precious, precious credit on it.

White Desert - A Marshal from Montana hunts down two killers on the run in the Canadian wilderness during winter. I love westerns and this one delivers! :)

Just finished Joe Marler's Loosehead. Really enjoyed that - got a lot of time for big Joe.

Currently reading Dave Grohl's autobiography The Storyteller. I'm not a massive Foo's fan or owt, though I did love a bit of Nirvana back in the day, but it is a great read.

The Inhabited Island by the Strugasky brothers. Great accessible Soviet sci-fi about a cosmonaut in the 22nd Century, right up there with their more famous Roadside Picnic. 8/10.


I also read 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, but it's more suitable for kids really and enjoyable mainly for the novelty of sci-fi from 150 years ago.

A great historian has passed away. I've read and enjoyed several of his books. Rest in peace David McCullough.

David McCullough, Pulitzer-winning historian, dies aged 89
The author of biographies and other works and narrator of documentaries, McCullough was 'the voice of American history' - The Guardian

"How To Win, (Rugby and Leadership)" by Clive Woodward ......... You won't be surprised to learn that Woodward comes across as a smug, arrogant p***k.
