The Anthropocene Reviewed

Essays on a Human-Centered Planet

By John Green
Narrated by: John Green
Length: 10 hours 3 minutes

If you enjoyed A Little Devil in America, then you’ll love The Anthropocene Reviewed.

“I found myself moved by Greene’s intellectual curiosity and humanism. Each review is a tiny, bite-sized memoir that says “I am here, this is my experience." Each essay is a teaspoon of liquid hope, reminding me that the world is filled with wonders large and small.”

An Autobiography

By Billie Jean King, Johnette Howard & Maryanne Vollers
Narrated by: Billie Jean King
Length: 18 hours 6 minutes

All In

“What a gift the autobiography of Billie Jean King is for all of us! I listened to Billie Jean King tell me the history of women's tennis and sports (Title IX, equal pay), social justice movements, gay rights, women's liberation, and of her life. To use one of her words — amazing!...This is an autobiography, not a memoir, so it is comprehensive and goes from childhood to the present. Billie Jean King is careful to dole out credit where credit is due. She has no axes to grind— and is mostly interested in talking about the change that still needs to happen, and her legacy. I will now forever have her voice and her laugh in my head. What a gift that is.”

Finalist for the Audie Award in Humor

There’s no right way to keep a diary, but if there’s an entertaining way, David Sedaris seems to have mas­tered it.

 
If it’s navel-gazing you’re after, you’ve come to the wrong place; ditto treacly self-examination. Rather, his observations turn outward: a fight... Read more »

The Princess Diarist

By Carrie Fisher
Narrated by: Carrie Fisher & Billie Lourd
Length: 5 hours 10 minutes

The Princess Diarist

“You know Carrie Fisher, the famous actress, but do you know Carrie Fisher, the writer? This witty, intimate and revealing memoir was published about a month before her death. I loved the listening experience. It felt like Fisher was in the room with me sharing memories from her past since she narrates the majority of the book. Included in this memoir are journal entries that Fisher wrote during the filming of A New Hope. These entries are narrated by her daughter, Billie Lourd. I have listened to audiobook multiple times, and it never disappoints!”
