This is the last week of school and I am crunched for time today, so a quick 13 books I have on cassette or cd:
- The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
- The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien
- The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron
- Western Quest by Joseph Campbell
- The Creative Fire by Clarissa Pinkola Estés
- Thomas Moore on Creativity
- Wherever You Go There You Are by Jon Kabat-Zinn
- Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg
- Integrative Medicine by Andrew M. Weil, M.D.
- Thunder and Lightning by Natalie Goldberg
- Joseph Campbell and The Power of Myth with Bill Moyers
- Beowulf, translated and read by Seamus Heaney
- The J. R. R. Tolkien Audio Collection
Several years ago I commuted an hour each way to work and these and other audiobooks turned that tedious drive into a precious two hours of listening and learning pleasure.
Do you have a favorite audiobook?

I’ve never even see an audio book, but I love the concept. Especially for long travels. Happy T13!
Great list! I love JRR Tolkien. Happy Thursday! 🙂
This is an awesome list. Half of it looks like it came from the class syllabus of my JRR Tolkein & his sources.
I love the Heaney translation of Beowulf!
That reminds me I need to get down to the public library and pick out some books on tape.
I’ve never listened to any audio books, but think they are a great idea for long trips. Happy T13!
I confess, I’ve never listened to audiobooks – I prefer to listen to music, and read the book myself. I like that better because I can read and re-read sections I find particularly interesting, moving or even confusing! LOL!
With LOTR, that happened a lot! 😉

I did some Agatha Christie on Audiobook. It was so weird to hear the familiar stuff read aloud, but very cool.
