Nothing to See Here
By Kevin Wilson
Narrated by Marin Ireland / 6 hours 40 minutes
“Did Lillian know her life would be changed forever when she met her boarding school roommate Madison? Probably not. Madison isn't like the other rich girls at school, and the fact that Lillian is a scholarship kid doesn't phase her. Things take a turn when Madison gets caught with coke. Flash forward roughly 10 years: even though the friends have kept up with each other with letters, Lillian is surprised when Madison has an unexpected job offer for her involving her stepchildren. This book is funny and strange, totally absurd and entertaining.”Rachel, Avid Bookshop
The Dutch House
By Ann Patchett
Narrated by Tom Hanks / 9 hours 52 minutes
“The Dutch House is an engrossing story that spans over 50 years. It is about a house and the memories that it holds. The story revolves around Danny and Maeve, a brother and sister who love each other deeply - more than any other person including Danny's wife. They share a sad childhood in which their Mother disappears with very little explanation. They are brought up by their distant father who loves their home, The Dutch House, more than his children or his second wife. When he dies suddenly in his 50's, the second wife takes everything and throws Danny and Maeve out of the house. The siblings manage and continue to be each other's lifeline. I enjoyed this book tremendously and developed great affection for the siblings, even with their complex, dysfunctional dynamics. An added bonus: Tom Hanks reads the story with plenty of heart and soul.”Melinda, Buttonwood Books and Toys

“Cognitive Development is Cog’s primary purpose, and his fresh, clear way of looking at the world makes me want to chase after him so his wisdom is always next to me. Read with sincerity and character, I loved listening to this story on a recent road trip. Great for conversation or just ruminating, Cog like Wall-E makes the world better because he exists.”Laura, Rediscovered Books
