I got both books as well as several others from that invaluable free source of public domain audiobooks, Librivox.
Well, that certainly defines a broad range! Wodehouse to Kant - I'm impressed.

I have to throw something in from time to time that challenges me to stretch the boundaries of my understanding and open my mind to new ways of thinking. But enough about the Wodehouse; it's time to take a break with some Kant.

I've only started to listen to audiobooks in the past couple of months, motivated both to kill the hour and a half I spend in the car (NPR, my former solution, is just too much fluff during my drive times; it was Story Corps that was the final blow) and to consume more content. I'm currently listening to Catastrophe 1914 by Max Hastings, as narrated by Simon Vance. It's a very listenable account of the events leading up to and the intial months of the Great War, with lots of personalities interacting, not just a dry recital of incident and battles. I had liked Vance's reading of Post Captain and he's equally good with this.

Currently (about halfway through) listening to Lord John and the Private Matter by Diana Gabaldon. It feels like a refreshing break from the Outlander books (I've listened to the first three) and have decided to alternate the rest of the Lord John series with the rest of the Outlander books.

I started in on Hugh Howey's Sand on my Easter road trip. It's not nearly as compelling as the Wool books and has just a little too much in common with them, but it's still a fun read. The reader for the audiobook is likewise just okay.
