Dear Fahrenheit 451
Spence, a librarian, shares with us her experiences as a librarian, through books. This is the perfect read for any public librarian. It is real, funny and entertaining!
I picked up the audio book version since the wait list for print was so long at my local library. Great story, but Obama isn’t the best narrator. She is kind of monotone, even at the most exciting parts of the story! Still though, I loved the book!
Nothing Is Impossible
by Christopher Reeve
I listened to the audiobook, read by the author. It’s filled with lots of medical terminology but it is educational and easy to understand. Reeve helps us understand his journey after his accident and also shares his true feelings about it all. Kudos to him for being able to write this and share his feelings with the world. We can all learn a thing or two from his great attitude.
Angela’s Ashes, ‘Tis, Teacher Man
by Frank McCourt
I listened to the audiobooks, all read by the author. I enjoyed Angela’s Ashes, liked ‘Tis but couldn’t finish Teacher Man. What a life this guy had!
Master Thieves: The Boston Gangsters Who Puled Off the World’s Greatest Art Heist
by Stephen Kurkijan
Picked this up audiobook after a visit to the museum. Interesting!
Yes My Accent is Real
by Kunal Nayyar
I so enjoyed this! I mostly listened to the audio book.
I am a big fan of the TV show the Big Bang Theory so I thought I might enjoy this book. Nayyar gives us a glimpse of his life through essays and short stories. It wasn’t a total biography like one would think, but certainly his stories help us understand who he is, where he came from and how he obtained his role on the TV show Big Bang Theory.
He was funny & genuine. If you are looking for a quick, easy read about a celebrity who is NOT self-centered or isn’t trying to be too funny, then this one is for you.
