Thursday Thirteen – Books for the Road

cdbyMPetrila788852_77064060-T13This is the last week of school and I am crunched for time today, so a quick 13 books I have on cassette or cd:

  1. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
  2. The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien
  3. The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron
  4. Western Quest by Joseph Campbell
  5. The Creative Fire by Clarissa Pinkola Estés
  6. Thomas Moore on Creativity
  7. Wherever You Go There You Are by Jon Kabat-Zinn
  8. Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg
  9. Integrative Medicine by Andrew M. Weil, M.D.
  10. Thunder and Lightning by Natalie Goldberg
  11. Joseph Campbell and The Power of Myth with Bill Moyers
  12. Beowulf, translated and read by Seamus Heaney
  13. 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?

  1. 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!

  2. 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! 😉

    Happy TT!
    Ciao!
