I’m a good listener

I’m a good listener. In the last few months, I’ve listened to:

Art of War by Sun Tzu – a fantastic reading of a vital treatise. You should read this.

Cat’s Cradle byKurt Vonnegut, Jr – I’m slowly becoming a Bokononist.

Guns, Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond – I just finished yesterday. Once I got past the super-uptight voice of the reader, I rather enjoyed learning about the pleistocene and modern era.

Next up is the 22+ hours of the abridged Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson.

    I wish I’d had the balls to finish Guns, Germs and Steel… It’s collecting dust on my nightstand table. Maybe I’ll renew hope based on your success. Perhaps listening is the key.

    But Cat’s Cradle! There’s a book I’ve read a few fabulous times, but never listened to. (Who read it?) I am quite the Vonnegut fan (I used to be able to recite many parts of Galapagos aloud from memory); I’ll have to show you and Charlotte my collection when I have the housewarming party when I have the house when it’s ready to move in when I can finish a bunch of stuff ahhhhhhhhhh :-) Can’t wait to cook you guys dinner in my new kitchen; that’s the goal I’m working with!
