Besides whatever change in ear phones you end up with, you might want to consider setting the equalizer present in Itunes to "Spoken Word". That's what I do.

Your Top HF and Other reads of 2012

Hope no one minds me starting this since I didn't see one and usually we have one near the end of the year. What I find valuable is learning what everyone considered their best HF reads of 2012, regardless of whether the book was published in 2012. Also, I find it nicer to let people use their judge...

In the end, I did enjoy it and would probably read the next in the series some day when it's available. Now I'm a little more than half way on Dennis Lehane's The Given Day which takes place i...

Finished 11/22/63. It was great. Would make a great book club "discussion" book as there are so many ideas that could be discussed.

Just started The Crown by Nancy Bilyeau.

After finishing Hood last week, I had to go on to Scarlet - the 2nd in the King Raven Trilogy, by Stephen R Lawhead. The ending just wasn't satisfying enough to leave it there without going right on. Today I finished Scarlet and again the end left me feeling the same way. So I'm now on the final boo...
