    Science Fiction is more interesting than my life! :blackalien:
    IF there WAS a Book about my Life, then it would no doubt be titled: ''F**K ME!'' :shifty:

    I would like to use that title as a request; is it already copyright?

    I personally like Stephen King, Dean Koontz and James Patterson...I'd assume some of the novels have been made into audio books, not sure as I've not listened to an audio book.

    They have over 200k books in audio format. I'm certain all the top-sellers get put on the list very quickly.

    I enjoy John Grisham, Lee Child, Daniel Silver, and a few others.

    I've just started his "On Writing"(A Memoir of the Craft). He starts with "I was stunned by Mary Karr's memoir, The Liars' Club" and now I want a copy of that too! :tongue:

    I also read a series of 3 books by Robert J. Sawyer awhile back; Humans, Hybrids and Hominids. I don't remember now which was the first in the series...I read the first one on a whim and then downloaded the other books. A weird story topic but I thought they were different but good reads.

    As mentioned by another poster Lee Child has some great books, especially the Reacher series. Stephen King's son goes by Joe Hill and has written a couple books that I really enjoyed.

    I'm a big fan of Bukowski and T. C. Boyle. Bret Easton Ellis is also entertaining.

    For something more historic try Emile Zola or Dostojewski. Both have a very slow style of story telling, going into much detail about the circumstances and surroundings. Not sure if any of these made it into audible.

    The MOST IMPORTANT Question;
    "Are these Audio Books Sites FREE or do you need to Pay for them?"

    I downloaded the Audio version of the Percy Jackson series a few years back but lost them and would like to download again along with other like-wise Stories for my Daughter, BUT if it mean$ Pe$o$ then... "Moving right along...." :whistling:
