I've enjoyed listening to this book while working for the past few days. You can see more about it here.

These are just a few that stand out that that I've listened to in the last few years:

Annie Proulx
-The Shipping News
-Accordion Crimes

Frank McCourt
-Angela's Ashes
-Tis

Michael Ondaatje
-In the Skin Of A Lion
-Divisadero

I sometime will go for some of the classics such as

Mark Twain
-Among the Indians
-Puddin Head Wilson

Henry David Thoreau
-Walden

Hope you find one of these that you'll enjoy.

Thanks Kevin,
I read the first two authors, but will see if I can find some of the others. Good idea to revisit the classics! I re read To Kill a Mocking Bird last year, after first reading it in grade 7 or 8. It was a whole different book this time!!
