Books on Audio

Dalmatian dog

I started listening to audio books about three years ago. I work for a public library and one of my fun jobs is to pick
out the audio tapes for our branch. I have listened to so many that I decided to start keeping track of them, just as I do the books that I read. If you know of a good audio book that I might enjoy please
email me with the title, author and what the audio book is about!

Marley and Me by John Grogan

Shortly after John and Jenny Grogan get married they decide

there is something missing from their life. A dog. They chose

a cute little yellow lab and name him Marley. The little fuzzy puppy soon

became a huge 90+ pound dynamo of energy. Through the ups

and downs of their life together I found myself laughing and

sometimes crying as the author recalls his life with Marley for

over 13 years.
