New audiobooks

We have another flush of new audiobooks on the shelf (it's a lot more efficient for us to do large batches of these at once, if you were wondering why they don't just dribble out onto the new shelves like the books). These are audio versions of some of the most popular current fiction titles:

Nothing to Lose: a Jack Reacher novel. This 12th installment in Lee Child's popular mystery/thriller series has actually beaten our print copy out onto the shelf.

Change of Heart is the newest release by bestselling author Jodi Picoult, who was here at our library a few years ago (May 2004) to give a reading of her work.

Sundays at Tiffany's is a bit of a departure for James Patterson. Rather than being grisly thriller about serial killers, this is a tender romance co-written with Gabrielle Charbonnet.

Gentlemen of the Road: a tale of adventure, by Michael Chabon, is a fun and rollicking historical adventure. Alaskans may be familiar with his acclaimed novel set in Sitka: The Yiddish Policemen's Union.

The Third Angel is by Alice Hoffman, who manages to cross the gap between literary fiction and romance novel with her touching, interwoven stories of three women at critical moments in their lives.

Coming tomorrow.....even more audiobook titles!
