Chasing the Thrill

Obsession, Death, and Glory in America's Most Extraordinary Treasure Hunt

By Daniel Barbarisi
Narrated by: Daniel Barbarisi
Length: 11 hours

Chasing the Thrill

“This book makes you feel like you’re on an adventure! More than just a saga about one eccentric millionaire’s treasure hunt, Chasing the Thrill is a nuanced and highly addictive story about Forest Fenn, his now infamous hidden treasure, and all of the controversies, joys, and tragedies that ended up being irrevocably intertwined with it. Barbarisi deftly anchors his narrative with an unvarnished look at his own experiences hunting for Forest Fenn’s hidden riches, keeping the reader on the edge of their seat until the very last page.”

Into the Forest

A Holocaust Story of Survival, Triumph, and Love

By Rebecca Frankel
Narrated by: Natalie Pela
Length: 11 hours 13 minutes

Into the Forest

“Confession: I was wary at first about another Holocaust survival story. And then I read the prologue, and couldn't put the book down. From the first pages, Rebecca Frankel had me feeling like a child listening, rapt, to the stories the women in my family would recount about the past. The immediacy and intimacy of the narrative swept me away and I lost track of my physical location, only half aware that I was sitting on my couch instead of hiding in fear for my life. Frankel is gentle, but unflinching, as she relates the events experienced by the Rabinowitz family. While Into the Forest is one tale of Holocaust survival among many such tales, it stands out not only for Frankel's storytelling acumen, but also as a reminder that one kindness can echo into the future in astounding and unpredictable ways.”

On Foot to Canterbury

A Son's Pilgrimage

By Ken Haigh
Narrated by: John Nelles
Length: 8 hours 9 minutes

“My father didn’t need this walk, not the way I do. For him it would have been a fun way to spend some time with his son. He had, I begin to realize, a talent for living in the moment… Perhaps a pilgrimage would help me find happiness. Perhaps I could walk my way into a better frame of mind, and somehow along the road to Canterbury I would find... Read more »

Broken (in the best possible way)

By Jenny Lawson
Narrated by: Jenny Lawson
Length: 8 hours 18 minutes

Broken (in the best possible way)

“Jenny Lawson is and will forever be my crazy, taxidermied spirit animal. In Broken she managed to make me snort coffee from my nose in laughter, then grasp at my aching heart a moment later in mutual grief. There's so much exposed nerve in this book that it is impossible not to get sucked into her vulnerability. I think she'd want you to know it's okay to come on over and linger in the pain. Just, you know, not TOO close next to her. Personal space and all that.”

Taste

My Life Through Food

By Stanley Tucci
Narrated by: Stanley Tucci
Length: 6 hours 50 minutes

If you enjoyed Julie and Julia - Abridged, then you’ll love Taste.

“I loved Tucci's wry writing and very unique take on food! This is a book you can gift just about everyone because it includes so many recipes as well as stories from Tucci's life and career. Though in proportion to food, the book involves very little Hollywood gossip Tucci does drop in jokes and asides about his famous friends and costars that satisfy the nosy nellies. Though I'm sure the physical edition of this book is great for it's recipes, if you want a truly immersive and hilarious experience, I highly recommend you download the audio! Tucci's dry humor breathes so much more sass and life into his words (and his casual name drops), it is not to be missed.”
