Cold Days audiobook version

Just to clarify, I'm still on my first run through the series, taking a break every 2-3 volumes. I doubt I'll get caught up before Cold Days drops and I'll most likely wait for the audio, anyway.
Doesn't audible release a new title at the same time as the printed version and the ebook are released? I seem to remember Amazon recently offering the audiobook along with an ebook for $4 or $5 extra.

Finished Ghost Story and Side Jobs. Waiting for Cold Days.

Just read the blurb for Cold Days on Amazon. Glad I didn't read it before Ghost Story.

Excellent. I skipped Ghost Stories in audio because Marsters didn't read it. I have all the others. I suspect that authors consider me that perfect customer in that I tend to get both the ebook and audio book of books that I like.

that's great news! it was jarring to have a different narrator, and actually fool moon was one of my first audio books because james marsters sounded like harry to me.

In my copy of Gatekeeper I've added a chapter (12a) that is a short story by Lippert called Petra's Getaway. I recommend that anyone reading Gatekeeper should read this short story between chapters 12 and 13. Anyway, it was quite enjoyable and I continue to look forward to the new one's release, James Potter and the Morrigan Web which is promised soon (this Autumn).

So, continuing my Dresden File re-read break I've just begun the G. Norman Lippert novella, The Girl on the Dock which I think of as James Potter 2.5.
Well, I finished The Girl on the Dock and it was, again, a really good read and a very good bridge between the second and third James Potter books.

Next I'm going to go back to my re-read of The Dresden Files. I'll read another three, beginning with book four, Summer Knight. :bookworm

Good to hear, Christa!

I just took a quick break about 3/4 of the way through Summer Knight to read the Dresden Files short story, B is for Bigfoot which takes place between Fool Moon and Grave Peril, so is actually the first story in the Bigfoot Trilogy even though the anthology containing it was published last (Under My Hat: Tales From the Cauldron by Jonathan Strahan). It was a fun quick read. Now back to finish Summer Knight!

instead of slogging through your day, perhaps you should have called in sick and finished it ;-)

In Turn Coat, I'm pretty sure, Harry mentions that one of the wardens helped him get rid of debilitating headaches. I'm assuming that's in a story I haven't read. I'm further assuming that someone here has .

What story am I looking for?

I don't have a clue as I don't remember the incident. If I run into it during this re-read I'll let you know.

Thanks Alan, I dug up this bit with a quick search of Wikipedia "At the start of the novel, Dr. Butters asks Dresden if he is still having headaches."

That's not what I'm thinking of, however. At some point before, during, or after the final battle with the Skinwalker, Harry mentions that Joseph Listens-to-Wind (AKA "Injun Joe") helped him deal with his headaches.

It seemed to be a reference to past events and a tie-in to a short story or graphic novel or something like that. I was sure there was something there that I'd missed, maybe not.
