I was only half-paying attention (literally the first time I tried an audiobook).

And half drunk when I posted.

Got the ESPN book for a gift. Will actually finish this one. Looks extremely interesting.

Just ordered a Kindle, will probably get another (sans the on-screen ads) for my mom for her birthday in August assuming I like it. Actually leaning more towards getting the Nook for her since she gets a lot of shit out of the library (which apparently is a lot easier to do with the Nook's file format than the Kindle's) and she'll use the B&N in-store connectivity features.

Will be ordering the ESPN book as well as the new Vince Flynn/Brad Thor/Tom Clancy books as soon as I get back.

Just finished The Color of Water by James McBride. Story about self discovery/reflection and a Jewish woman raising her 12 Milano kids in new york. Pretty solid.

Picked up this at the Airport on Saturday. About 60 pages in. Not a bad read.

And here's an extremely cheesy Trailer for the book http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X58RPS665V0

Anyone plan on reading about when Carol Brady got crabs from the mayor of New York? Me neither.
