I love those audiobooks, I must listen to Dragonfly in Amber soon! At least I have planned to get through the whole series in audio before the next book comes out. After giving up on reading the books after A Breath of Snow and Ashes, I got restarted last year by listening to An Echo in the Bone. It made me want to go back and start over again.

I finished Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson last weekend. I liked it, but not as much as I thought I would. The story wasn't entirely my cup of tea after all, and I think some of the voices Frederick Davidson did for the pirates were a bit over the top.

I am nearly finished with Brothers in Arms by Lois McMaster Bujold as well. I am enjoying listening to the Vorkosigan series more than actually reading it and I might get another one soon. If I don't get sidetracked by other books, that is.

I have also been listening to The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde during lunch breaks on my Kindle. It might be a while until I finish it, but I am enjoying it so far. Steven Crossley is a terrific narrator whom I first learned to appreciate when I listened to To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis.
