What are you listening to?

I got a new toy. An ipod shuffle. I am so excited. I listen to a lot of audiobooks while I knit and before today, I was listening to them through my PDA. On the one hand this was good because I always have my PDA with me. But, it's big and cumbersome to listen to when your moving. So my dear, sweet hubby got me an ipod shuffle. It is so small and portable--I hope I don't loose it...

Here's what I've listened to over the past 6 month:
1. and 2. Angela's Ashes and Tis by Frank McCourt (and narrated by Mr. McCourt). I absolutely loved these, as sad as they were at times. I am sure I would not have enjoyed them as much if Mr. McCourt had not been the narrator, but he was, and they were both great.
3. Suite Francaise: A Novel by Irene Nemirovsky. This was a slow read/listen (I was doing both), but a good story in the end. I read this as part of Purl Diva's book club and then sadly missed the book get-together.
4. Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. I thought this book would never end, but I had to finish it.
5. Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off: The Yarn Harlot's Guide to the Land of Knitting by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. Quick and fun. I loved it, of course.

Now I'm starting The Whole World Over by Julia Glass. I'm a little nervous because it is 22 hours long, yes-22 hours long. But I loved Three Junes by JG so I am giving it a try. I just started today--I'll let you know how it's going next week. I hope my new shuffle has a strong battery!
