I finished For a Few Demons More by Kim Harrison a couple of days ago. I'm a bit ambivalent about this series, and for a while I just wanted the book to be over. But I'm going to listen to the next one as well. Just not right away

I haven't been able to decide on which book to listen to next, so I've been catching up on some podcasts instead.

I've enjoyed the Kim Harrison series to read (as opposed to listening). It's lightweight and funny. And coming to an end -- the last book was just released last week or so. Oh well -- it was a fun ride! I think the series is about 12 books.

Finished Carousel Sun, and really enjoyed this re-read. I read it in eBook format when the book was first released, but the Audible version wasn't available until just now. Elizabeth Rodgers does a superb job narrating this book. Her Maine accent sounds perfect to my admittedly non-Maine ears, and her pacing and character separation are excellent, without the use of weird voices.

For those not familiar with the Archer's Beach series, this is the second in the series, with the first being Carousel Tides. These Maine Fantasies are a complete departure from the author's Liaden Universe series of Space Operas, but equally well written. Highly recommended.

Next up, Frederica by Georgette Heyer. This will be a combined eBook and audio book read.
Finished Frederica, an excellent Heyer Regency, and the audio book was quite well read by Clifford Norgate. Unfortunately, there seems to be a lot of different readers for the Heyer books. I'm sure some of the others will be good, but I dislike changing readers for an author without a compelling reason.

Next up was a re-listen to Crystal Soldier, read by Kevin T. Collins. This is chronologically the first of the Liaden Universe books, but is really a prequel, and outside the main story lines. I enjoyed this a lot, and I liked Kevin T. Collins' narration. He sometimes has a problem with pace, but this book was fine. I'm going to read Crystal Dragon next. Though, since this is a re-read, I'm just completely skipping that first prelude to the book that I never liked. I'm starting with Chapter 1, and look forward to the listen.

I am starting It's Superman, based on WT Sharpe's recommendation, so if I don't love it, I know whom to blame!

I'm hoping it will bring me back to the good old days of eagerly awaiting the new issues of Superman and Lois Lane comics!

MeTV just started showing the old 50s TV series of Superman on Sat nights. Takes me back to my childhood.

I know! I love old Superman! The early episodes especially are kind of noirish fun.

The Tim Daly-voiced Superman cartoons are part of Amazon Prime, and I've started watching those, too.

I may have to dig out my collection of Lois Lane comics.

I'll be interested to hear what you think of it. It's still on my TBLT list.

I'm enjoying it so far. I hadn't been liking Scott Brick too much as the narrator for some thrillers I'd been reading previously, but he seems really well suited for this book. I like all the period references and the historical detail.
