The Great Courses on Audible!

Great Courses - Edited for Web

Earlier this week, I was feeling a bit at loose ends in terms of audio books. I couldn’t seem to find anything that kept my interest. So, I sent a tweet out into the great Twitter world and was thrilled with the suggestions I received. When I went to Audible to check out the tempting titles, I found that another of my favorite listening companies had joined forces with — The Great Courses!


I’ve been a fan of The Great Courses for years! One of my favorite lecture series is The History of the Supreme Court. I am planning on downloading The Rise and Fall of the British Empire. The best part about having The Great Courses in Audible is that each lecture series only takes one Audible Credit! That is such a bargain!


Back to the suggestions I received from my fellow audiofiles on Twitter. VisMajor suggested The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick and A Dog’s Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron.


RedneckedRabbit suggested the Nice girls don’t series by Molly Harper and Fluke by Christopher Moore.


LGordon555 recommended Rules of Civility by Amor Towles.


And, RegencyKnitter reminded me to continue with the Flavia de Luce mysteries by Alan Bradley. The first book in the series is The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. I had completely forgotten that I already had the second book, The Weed that Strings the Hangman’s Bag. I’m staying home today to settle in with my Cupcake Mitts. So, I think I will enjoy the company of Flavia de Luce as I knit.

    I love The Great Courses! I have several of their DVD sets. My favorite so far is the course on linguistics.
