Silence

In the Age of Noise
By Erling Kagge & Becky L. Crook
Narrated by Atli Gunnarsson /  2 hours 3 minutes

Silence

“Kagge's deceptively simple meditation on silence complicates something we all think we understand. Quoting from a wide range of artists and thinkers, Kagge constructs a graceful mosaic of definitions, statements, and paradoxes. We all have a 'primal need for' silence, Kagge states, and in this noisy world, it's 'the new luxury.' Though it's found inside of us, Kagge, an explorer and publisher, traveled to Japan to look for it in meditation and yoga; he walked to Antarctica in search of it, spending 50 days alone. Made up of 33 brief sections and ending in a blank page, Kagge leaves plenty of room for the reader's own reflections, demonstrating the kind of active engagement he believes silence invites.”

Hallelujah Anyway

Rediscovering Mercy
By Anne Lamott
Narrated by Anne Lamott /  2 hours 53 minutes

Hallelujah Anyway

“Hallelujah Anyway completely consumed me. The world has changed so much in the last year and it seems overwhelming at times. Lamott's new book is the answer to that despair, hopelessness, and futility. It's exactly what the title says - mercy through difficult times, kindness when it's not deserved, and singing hallelujah anyway. Lamott writes with such refreshing honesty. This book is now what I like to refer to as 'well-loved - underlined, dog-eared, and slightly worn. I suspect I'll revisit my favorite passages for years to come.”
