Ten random things: January 31

Ten books I say that I've read but have actually only listened to as an audiobook:

  1. Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe
  2. Making Movies by Sidney Lumet
  3. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
  4. Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding
  5. The Basque History of the World by Mark Kurlansky
  6. Ship of the Line by Diane Carey
  7. The Gospel According to Larry by Janet Tashjian
  8. Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift
  9. Timeline by Michael Crichton
  10. Lincoln at Gettysburg by Gary Wills

When I worked for GE, I listened to a lot of audio books as I drove to and from work, but my commute is considerably shorter now so I don't. From an audiobook standpoint, I would have to say the best of these is Bridget Jones's Diary, thanks mostly to the fantastic reading by Barbara Rosenblat. Highly recommended.
