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.)

Knocked out Wounds for Wishes for review. Great book. Here's my review.

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.
