Now there are two Ten on Tuesday lists! One is for print and one is for audio!
Right now I’m reading Accidents of Providence (by Stacia M. Brown.) This pubbed last February to fairly lukewarm reviews; but I’m really enjoying it so far and seeing quite a few parallels to current events. It’s a historical fiction predicated on An Act to Prevent the Destroying and Murdering of Bastard Children (1624.) Jennifer/@lithousewife at literatehousewife.com is hosting a discussion on April 19, 2012 if you would like to read along!

I had to DNF Resolving Everyday Conflict (an Inspirational/Faith-Based Non-Fiction title by Ken Sande and Kevin Johnson; narrated by Maurice England.) The narrator had a great, straight forward approach to the material; but he also has a lateral lisp that at best is annoying and, at worst, painful. Also, I’m a cradle Catholic and, despite my open mind; there are times when I cannot grasp some the concept of Christ’s death as “Sacrifice” as opposed to “The Way” and “The Light.” Because this work is built on understanding Christ’s Death as primarily “Sacrifice” I hit a wall fairly early on.
Right now I’m listening to Unknown (A Special Edition of Out of My Head; by Didier Van Cauwelaert; narrated by Bronson Pinchot,) an Armchair Audies finalist in the Thriller/Suspense category. Basically, it’s Out of My Head, with the movie poster art for Unknown (starring Liam Neeson) on the cover.
I’m very excited that the CD set of The Arthur Miller Collection came in; but shocked that it’s nineteen discs! I’ll be ripping this to my iPod this weekend and starting that next week.
