Save Me the Plums

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

Save Me the Plums

“I really enjoyed this giant love letter from Ruth Reichl to Gourmet Magazine, her co-workers and her family. I’ve always enjoyed Reichl’s voice in her cookbooks and memoirs and this is no different. I listened to this and Reichl read it herself. Just as enjoyable was listening to her read aloud the recipes in the book.the story about how she first joined the magazine and how she changed it was fascinating to listen to. I’ve flipped through Gourmet over the years and made some fantastic dishes from it. It’s a shame and shameful how the powers that be closed the magazine so suddenly and without notice to the staff or readers. It’s time for me to revisit her last cookbook (which she wrote after the magazine shut down).”

From the Corner of the Oval

A Memoir
By Beck Dorey-Stein
Narrated by Beck Dorey-Stein /  9 hours 53 minutes

From the Corner of the Oval

“A thoroughly enjoyable and interesting book that makes public service, working for POTUS, a job in the White House a worthy occupation. An insider's personal account, it gives details about the the president and numerous others either identified or disguised as well as the inevitable personal pot holes that make the book a sort of novelization. By the way, who knew that "stenographer" is still an active job title. Fans of "Madame Secretary," political junkies of many stripes and those longing for a return to a sense of normalcy in the White House will pick up this book with gratitude.”

I Miss You When I Blink

Essays
By Mary Laura Philpott
Narrated by Mary Laura Philpott /  6 hours 5 minutes

I Miss You When I Blink

“Mary Laura Philpott writes about today’s American woman in her marvelously frank and witty book of essays, I Miss You When I Blink. Women of all ages will nod their heads when reading about the decision to have babies (or not), the pitfalls of volunteering, the difficulty of getting a cat out from under the bed, the reward of crossing things off ‘the list,’ the challenge of finding time for relaxation, and, above all, the acceleration of time as we age. Philpott shares pivotal moments from her life in such a relatable way that, through both laughter and tears, readers will exclaim, ‘Yes, yes, this is ME!’ Don’t miss this gem!”

The Only Plane in the Sky

An Oral History of September 11, 2001
By Holter Graham & Garrett M. Graff
Narrated by A Full 45-Person Cast /  15 hours 54 minutes

The Only Plane in the Sky

“Today I had a day off and listened to Only Plane in the Sky by Garrett M. Graff on Libro.fm. I was in tears after the first 30 minutes. Has it really been 18 years since 9-11-01? It seems like it happened yesterday since it's still all so raw. I listened to the whole book nonstop until I was finished today. The style of the book reminds me of one of my favorite authors Studs Terkel. Let the people tell their own stories and the overall heart of the story will be told clearly and honestly. This will be a great gift suggestion for book buyers looking for the perfect gift for fathers, history bluffs, anyone that lived through those very tough days surrounding 9-11-01. Never forget!”

Talking to Strangers

What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know
By Malcolm Gladwell
Narrated by Malcolm Gladwell /  8 hours 42 minutes

Talking to Strangers

“Instead of reading this important book outright, Gladwell uses a podcast-style format to really engage the listener. Thoroughly engaging, interesting, and enlightening, audio is definitely an excellent way to read this book.”
