A Trip to the Hardware Store & Other Calamities: Quirky Essays for Quirky People

Written by: Barbara Venkataraman

Narrated by: Carrie Lee Martz

Length: 55 mins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date: 02-26-14

Publisher: Barbara Markley

I was hesitant to dedicate a whole post reviewing this title because at 55 minutes long it’s weird to even call it an audiobook, considering most podcasts these days are longer. However, I’m pleased to do so because some people aren’t into podcasts and this format may be of interest to them. Have an hour to kill while driving or doing chores? This light and humourus read will provide you with family friendly entertainment in the form of short essays about everyday life events. Doesn’t sound like much but most of them are quite relatable and surprisingly funny. Read the rest of this entry

I’ve never actually read the original Legend of Sleepy Hollow until now, so this audiobook rendition was my first experience with the American classic. If you like me happen to have not read the legend, it tells the story of Ichabod Crane – a teacher in the Dutch settlement of Tarry Town, more often called by its’ residents as Sleepy Hollow. He among other men from the town is courting Katrina Van Tassel – the young and only daughter of a wealthy farmer.  Read the rest of this entry

Warning! You’re entering serious geek territory! Only authorized geeky personnel is to proceed beyond this point! OK, I’m kidding but seriously, this is some awesome hardcore sci-fi stuff. When a few years ago I started listening to audiobooks, one of the first books that I listened to was the original METAtropolis and I can say without any doubt that it was that moment I got completely hooked on the medium. If you haven’t read it, it’s a collection of five novellas specifically written for this book by award-winning sci-fi authors and narrated by actors from the awesome Battlestar Galactica TV show and other A Team voice talent. I just can’t recommend it enough. After hungrily plowing through it I immediately got my little hands on the next installment of this series – METAtropolis: Cascadia and indulged in some more amazing science fiction from these talented authors. That was somewhere around 2011 or 2012, I think. Imagine my recent reaction when I found out there’s a new third book. Read the rest of this entry
