The Seas

By Samantha Hunt
Narrated by: Samantha Hunt
Length: 4 hours 53 minutes

Moored in a coastal fishing town so far north that the highways only run south, the unnamed narrator of The Seas is a misfit. She's often the subject of cruel local gossip. Her father, a sailor, walked into the ocean eleven years earlier and never returned, leaving his wife and daughter to keep a forlorn vigil. Surrounded by water and beckoned... Read more »

The Nineties

A Book

By Chuck Klosterman
Narrated by: Chuck Klosterman & Dion Graham
Length: 12 hours 38 minutes

The Nineties

“Born in the mid-nineties but truly a child of the 2000’s, I have always romanticized the nineties. Klosterman uniquely provides a broad but also individual look at my favorite decade. Only having fleeting knowledge of various aspects of the decade- Y2K, OJ Simpson, landlines, watching Friends live- I loved Klosterman’s take and insights on the times!”

Happy-Go-Lucky

“This was my first experience listening to David Sedaris. It was great. His stories are always smart and funny, sometimes disturbing, but always make me think. Wonderful to hear him tell them authentically.”

Mouth to Mouth

A Novel

By Antoine Wilson
Narrated by: Edoardo Ballerini
Length: 4 hours 52 minutes

Mouth to Mouth

“One of those novels that seems straightforward. And easy listen, the story unfolds in a nice, linear fashion. A tale recited over drinks at an airport lounge. Then the ending makes you rethink everything. Well written and fascinating. Wonderful narration by Edoardo Ballerini. Again! (He narrates a lot)”

Did That Just Happen?!

Beyond “Diversity”—Creating Sustainable and Inclusive Organizations

By Stephanie Pinder-Amaker & Lauren Wadsworth
Narrated by: Joy Vandervort
Length: 7 hours 8 minutes

Did That Just Happen?!

“I came across this book during an online conference recently and I loved the discussion with these two authors, so I had to read their book immediately. This is full of great guidelines on how *not* to treat people in any type of work environment can be used as a manual to keep up with the ongoing work of inclusivity. It gives lessons in easy-to-digest examples, words and phrases to avoid, and how to listen actively. I highly recommend this to anyone in any kind of leadership role, or anyone who just wants to keep doing the work to be a better person. ”

O Beautiful

A Novel

By Jung Yun
Narrated by: Catherine Ho
Length: 10 hours 57 minutes

O Beautiful

“This beautiful character-driven book set in the American Midwest covers many contemporary topics like racism, fracking, sexual harassment, and the immigrant experience. I loved the messy protagonist Elinor Hanson, a Korean American who grew up in South Dakota. A former model with a new career later in life as a journalist, Elinor has baggage that needs unpacking so badly her clothes are spilling out of her metaphorical suitcase at a rapid pace. Korean American author Jung Yun has written a fantastic novel in O Beautiful that surprised me over and over, especially by book's end.”

The Book of Delights

By Ross Gay
Narrated by: Ross Gay
Length: 5 hours

If you enjoyed Seed to Dust, then you’ll love The Book of Delights.

“This is one of my favorite books to recommend, especially for someone looking for a gift. Poet and avid gardener Ross Gay, who also is the fantastic narrator, reflects on what delights him over the course of a year. Lyrical, humorous, philosophical and sometimes heartbreaking, these essays may be bite-sized but they will fill you up. A great way to recalibrate and appreciate our own day to day pleasures and challenges.”

Falling

A Novel

By T. J. Newman
Narrated by: Steven Weber
Length: 8 hours 26 minutes

Falling

Falling is the literary thriller that gets your heart racing and causes you to be both contemplative and terrified at the same time. TJ Newman, a former indie bookseller and a former flight attendant, knows how to tell a story. She writes with a remarkable turn of phrase and with insider knowledge of what can happen in an airplane. It's always a great day when an indie bookseller publishes a book. It's an extremely great day when the book is a fantastic page-turner.”

She Come By It Natural

Dolly Parton and the Women Who Lived Her Songs

By Sarah Smarsh
Narrated by: Sarah Smarsh
Length: 4 hours 33 minutes

She Come By It Natural

“Part Dolly Parton biography and part Sarah Smarsh memoir, She Come By It Natural is an intriguing exploration of Parton both as an individual, and as a pop culture phenomenon who means so much to so many people. This collection of essays reads like a well plotted story, and wonderfully highlights Parton’s authenticity, ambition, grit, humility, and abundant heart, while also examining some of her missteps.”

Six Essays

By Zadie Smith
Narrated by: Zadie Smith
Length: 1 hours 50 minutes

Intimations

“Listened to the audiobook of Intimations a full year after COVID-19 began, on the eve of George Floyd's murderer being found responsible, and it is just as powerful now as it would have been at the beginning of the pandemic. Stunning and worth listening to several times.”

The Need

By Helen Phillips
Narrated by: Alex Allwine
Length: 6 hours 19 minutes

The Need

“THE NEED is a thriller about the sheer emotional and physical intensity of mothering and perhaps a rip in the time space continuum. Phillips is a gifted lyrical creator of worlds. Not for the faint of heart and wonderfully absorbing.”
