Save Me the Plums

My Gourmet Memoir
By Ruth Reichl
Narrated by Ruth Reichl /  7 hours 54 minutes

Save Me the Plums

“Disclosure: I am not a foodie even though I am married to a former chef. What sparked my interest in Save Me The Plums was the subject - Gourmet Magazine. Although neither of my parents could cook to save their lives, we always proudly displayed and saved every copy of Gourmet Magazine that came with our yearly subscription. I listened to the audio which is read by the author, Ruth Reichl, who went from food critic to editor in chief of Gourmet Magazine. Most times, I don't like the author reading their own books because of the poor delivery. Not in this case - Reichl does a fabulous job with her reading. The details of the inner workings of Conde Nast were fascinating. Although she was not a self-proclaimed feminist, she knew instinctively how to handle tense situations as well as difficult people. I enjoyed hearing about everything from the strong personalities of the staff to the beautiful offices and test kitchen. There are also mouthwatering recipes included in this memoir. I may not have been a foodie when I began Save The Plums but thanks to Ruth Reichl, I have a whole new appreciation for food and a successful food magazine. I highly recommend this delicious memoir.”

The Pioneers

The Heroic Story of the Settlers Who Brought the American Ideal West
By David McCullough
Narrated by John Bedford Lloyd /  10 hours 23 minutes

The Pioneers

“The Pioneers is a fascinating look at our nation trying to find its way in the years after the Revolutionary War. After securing our liberty, at the cost of thousands of lives, we turned our attention westward and to the promise held there. Of course, we were not the first to explore these lands west of New England. These new pilgrims met with both violence and hospitality from native people they encountered, and they returned both - perhaps not in equal measure. This is not just the story of how the Midwest was won, but also how the venture was financed. These expeditions were the Tesla & Uber stock of their day: high risk, and high reward. Also like today, those that profited the most were not always those placed in the most peril. Ultimately, you are left in awe of the perseverance of these settlers and the sacrifices that they made to establish our nation as it is today.”
