Nabokov on audiobook
Having run through most of what our local library had available in audiobooks, I took the plunge and joined Audible.com. So now I'm like a kid in the candystore...I want this. And this. And all of that. Like Earl in the movie Diner, I feel like ordering the entire left side of the menu.
I noticed earlier this week that several additional works by Vladimir Nabokov have been added just in the past month: The Stories of Vladimir Nabokov, Speak, Memory: An Autobiography Revisited, Invitation to a Beheading, Bend Sinister, and Mary. I wanted to pass this on to those that enjoy audiobooks--some of these are available outside of Audible.com while others will be released later this month.
I finish Ron Chernow's Washington: A Life (highly recommended in any format) today or Monday and will start Speak, Memory...I'm definitely looking forward to it.
