We were too, we had to buy the books. I think this is why some books stay in print.

Listening to Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir. It is absolutely fantastic, made even better by Ray Porter's narration. I loved The Martian too. I'm not much of a sci/fi fan as far as books, but holy shit does Weir deliver.

If you've never read Weir, this short story/novella is a good place to start cheap. (Or you can watch The Martian with MATT DAMON.)

Getting into two for review:



Devil's Creek is actually a book, but it's being re-released in January, so there's no pre-order yet.

Still reading the above two (and really enjoying them), but I knocked out a few audiobooks:



Dawn of the Dead is the best amongst the three. Fantastic performance by the narrator and a great book all around. It complements the movie nicely by adding more developed characters and some different scenes.

Ronald Kelly's Dark Dixie: Tales of Southern Horror is a fun listen. The narrator's southern twang is absolutely perfect for Kelly's words.

Survivor's Guilt is the weakest of the bunch, but not because of its story. I actually really liked the story and probably would have liked it more if I had read it instead of listened. The narrator is virtually monotone throughout the read, showing little to no emotion, much less a variety of voices for different characters. I recommend the book, but no the audio book.
