What audiobooks are you listening to?

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

I have an audio version of GWTW. Quite good in fact. The narrator does a nice job with the various southern accents. It's in my audible library.
my facebook posts https://www.facebook.com/emilylaurencotton are public, generally things I find amusing.
my passions: fair trade, ending slavery, and justice.

I finished News of the World by Paulette Jiles yesterday. The audio is read by Grover Gardner whose voice is perfect for Westerns.

I've just started Is Paris Burning, which is non-fiction about the liberation of Paris. I picked it up because I'm trying to read one NF per month and this was available at the library. I had no idea until after I started reading it and did a little research on the book that it was written in the 60s and had been made into a movie. The history is interesting, but I don't care for the narrator's voice. I may have to look for the movie.
