New Audiobooks!

Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, by Cheryl Strayed

A powerful, blazingly honest, inspiring memoir: the story of a 1,100 mile solo hike that broke down a young woman reeling from catastrophe--and built her back up again. Oprah's new Book Club pick!

Last Kind Words, by Tom Piccirilli

Resolving to pursue an honest life after his brother goes on a murderous rampage and is sentenced to execution, Terrier Rand learns that his brother did not commit one of the killings for which he was sentenced and resolves to learn what really happened that day.

The Third Gate, by Lincoln Child

Believing he has discovered the burial chamber of a near-mythical Egyptian pharaoh and a mystical double crown, famed archaeologist Porter Stone and his team suffer bizarre accidents that Professor Jeremy Logan is brought in to investigate.

The Red House, by Mark Haddon

Because of Haddon's extraordinary narrative technique, the stories of these eight people are anything but simple. Told through the alternating viewpoints of each character, The Red House becomes a symphony of long-held grudges, fading dreams and rising hopes, tightly-guarded secrets and illicit desires, all adding up to a portrait of contemporary family life that is bittersweet, comic, and deeply felt. As we come to know each character they become profoundly real to us. We understand them, even as we come to realize they will never fully understand each other, which is the tragicomedy of every family.
