I usually spend my credits on new releases, but this month I treated myself to Sarah Morris Remembers by D.E. Stevenson. Stevenson's books are quiet, lovely, sometimes funny, and sometimes just a wee lil bit edgy. They're set in England and/or Scotland (thus, great narration!!!!), and these old-fashioned stories are just what I need some weeks. Sarah Morris Remembers was a bit of a slow starter, but otherwise delightful. If you haven't read or listened to a D.E. Stevenson novel, I'd start with Miss Buncle's Book. If you like it, there are several Buncle sequels to keep you occupied. Source Books has recently come out with some lovely new paperback editions of many D.E. Stevenson novels -- great news because the books had become a little hard to find for U.S. readers. Fortunately, Audible offers audio versions of many of her works.
I'm not going to buy the Audible extra credits anymore. I really like making a ritual of spending my two credits each month and then filling in the listening gaps with deals of the day and bargain listens from the various Audible sales. I'm trying to push myself to expand my listening options with library audiobooks and LibriVox.
Anyone have any audiobook news or credit reports? Please share in comments.
