Mailbox Monday






Welcome to Malibox Monday's home for the month of May! 

For those of you not familiar with it,
Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.
It was started by Marcia of the Printed Page (now A Girl and Her Books) and is now being hosted monthly by different bloggers. Go here to find the schedule. But first, be sure to leave a link to your MM post below using the handy-dandy Mister Linky at the bottom of this post. 

This is the end of the road for me. I had a great time hosting. For the month of June you will find Mailbox Monday at The Bluestocking Guide
______________________________
This week I wanted to share with you some books I got from audible.com. I have only listened to a few books on tape before so I am still a bit of a newbie. There was a get two books free for trying it out that I just couldn't pass up. These are a couple books I have wanted to read for awhile so I am excited to get listening.
Water for Elephants
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
Outlander
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

  7. Outlander is a fantastic audiobook (if it is the unabridged read by Davinia Porter)!! You will be hooked on the series.

  9. Am sure you will love those audio books. I am totally hooked on listening to audiobooks in my car to and from work!

  10. TWO books that I USED to have, but now don't. I actually had the first 5 copies (in hardback) of the Outlander series, and loaned them out ... they never came back. Water for Elephants - loaned to my middle bebe girl before I got a chance to read it - also now lost (I already told her she can never borrow another book from me that I haven't already read). I DO have Outlander on Kindle, though. It would actually be a great listen, depending on the narrator. Thanks for hosting this month, and enjoy the new "listens"!

  11. I have a copy of Outlander that I've been meaning to read for about 10 years now! Terrible, I know, but it's sooo big. Audio may be the answer. I've been enjoying a lot more audio books this year.

  29. I have not gotten the hang of audiobooks. I can listen to them if I follow along (I know that's weird). Hopefully one of these days I'll get the hang of them. These look like they would be great ones to listen to. I hope you enjoy them both.
