Audible Two-fer-1 Revisted
Collected Fictions - Andrew Hurley,Jorge Luis Borges,George Guidall
Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) - Steven Crossley,Jerome K. Jerome
Zorba the Greek - Nikos Kazantzakis,George Guidall
The Railway Children - Virginia Leishman,E. Nesbit

I went back to the sale pile to see if I missed anything and found another 4 books. This is making up for all of those sales where I walk away with nothing.

 

Zorba is another one of those titles from my teen years while Railway is one of those childhood classics that I never read (that I can remember). Three Men in a Boat I chose because the name rang a bell (lol, it came through on BL feed).

 

The Borges I chose with mixed emotions. Reading it English is a sign of defeat, a sign that I have given up on trying to read it in Spanish. But, I want to read those stories, so time to stop procastinating and just get it done!

 

May I also please note that I am thrilled that George Guidall reads two of the 8 titles and Grover Gardner another. It always makes it so much easier to choose when one of my favorite narrators is at the microphone. At least I know that I won't be yelling at the book to pronounce things properly or complaining about the voicing of a particular character; these two always get it right.

Another Audible 2-for-1 Sale: Classic Works
The Virginian - Jack Garrett,Owen Wister
Classic Novels: Meeting the Challenge of Great Literature - Arnold Weinstein,Professor Arnold Weinstein Ph.D. Harvard University
Steppenwolf - Hermann Hesse,Peter Weller
Roughing It - Grover Gardner,Mark Twain

I do enjoy the 2-for-1 sales. Audible never makes its entire inventory available in these sales but selects a couple of hundred titles to offer. Some sales I find nothing and some I walk away with hours worth of listening. 

 

Please don't read anything into my choosing both Roughing It and The Virginian. Slowly but surely, I seem to be consuming more and more Twain, and I especially like his travelogues. Meanwhile, The Virginian (and Steppenwolf, too) are returns to high school reads.

 

Then, to round out my choices, there is a "Great Courses" lecture series on Classic Novels, which will either be very enlightening or just simply pompous beyond bearing.

Reading progress update: I've read 69 out of 512 pages.
The Beast Player - Nahoko Uehashi,Cathy Hirano

I like the anime more than the book with the way it starts. The book gets right into the action of Souyon killing the Touda. Where as the anime build up to it with a few episodes about village life and about the Touda. Maybe to let it make more sense what's going on.
