By now, you may have had an opportunity to check out the Nook from Barnes and Noble. If not, check out their website. Of particular interest is the comparison between the Nook and the Kindle. I have submitted a question regarding the use of audiobooks with the new device and will hopefully have the answer by next week.
The #1 Bestselling Audiobook:
The Lost Symbol is knocked from its spot at the top of Audible.com’s bestseller list by Michael Connelly’s 9 Dragons (read by Len Cariou). I can’t wait to get my hands on the latest Harry Bosch thriller. Working for the first time in the world of Asian Gangs in South Los Angeles, Bosch may just be over his head when someone important to him is taken.
Vince Flynn brings Pursuit of Honor (narrated by George Guidall) to the list this week. An action packed political thriller begins with terrorist bombings in Washington, D.C. Counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp must work to find those responsible, while politicians deal with the tangled politics of the events. My husband loves Flynn’s books. I’ll have to put this one on his Christmas list.
Clive Cussler’s Spartan Gold (read by Scott Brick) also debuts on the list this week. When treasure hunters find a bottle from Napolean’s legendary “lost wine cellar” they are determined to find the rest of the collection. Their competition is a half-Persian millionaire who believes the treasure to belong to him. I’ve never read Cussler, but I know his fans are pumped to read this one!
Another new entry on the list is Bright-Sided: How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking has Undermined America by Barbara Ehrenreich (read by Kate Reading). With the spate of self-help books encourage us to think positive to achieve our goals; Ehrenreich’s book is a complete surprise. The effects of positive thinking on our personal lives as well as on the nation as a whole are presented in a witty critique. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it?
