A New Project

I decided record my book Remembering Big, so that people who don't enjoy reading that much, can listen. I actually love to read, but when I was working every day, and driving and hour each way, I had very little time left for reading. As a result, I listened to literally hundreds of books on tape/cd. 
If anyone looked at my audio library, they'd probably be amused. 
A sampling of what I've listened to over the past several years is:
The Rise and Fall of Alexandria

The Civil War
Atlas Shrugged
Water For Elephants
The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo (and the other two)
A Farewell to Arms
Robinson Caruso
Anna Karenina
War and Peace
Benjamin Franklin
Thomas Jefferson
John Adams
Undaunted Courage (Biography of Teddy Roosevelt)
Everything that James Lee Burke, Carl Hiaasen, and Wayne Dyer has written
And a bunch more......OK, perhaps as the old gospel song goes, I've Drifted Too Far From the Shore, but the bottom line is, I've decided to record my book and pitch it to audio publishers to "see if that dog will hunt", as my daddy, rest his soul, would have said.
So I sat down today and did some recording. It will take a while, but I have a goal to be totally finished by August 31.
If I don't make that target, I need some of you to lean on me.
Have a great week.


  1. Great idea, and good luck with the publishers.

  2. I'm looking forward to hearing you read your stories. Any possibility you and Jilda could put one or two to music?

  3. Sounds like a great idea! Keep us up to date on how it goes.

    I once recorded an Anne Rice book for Lenny when he was on the road doing sales. He loved it. It did take forever!

  4. Okay, I'll practice leaning //// ;-D
