Staff Picks, Audiobooks! 

Audiobooks can make a long road trip more enjoyable or add interest to an activity like cooking, crafting, or working in the garage. Sometimes just chilling on the couch is the perfect time to listen to an audiobook. During the month of August, Staff Picks will feature favorite audiobooks enjoyed by Lewis & Clark Library Staff.

The Beekeeper’s Apprentice  
by Laurie R. King  

The Beekeeper’s Apprentice is the first book in the Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes series by Laurie R. King. I love this great series in audiobook. The stories are classic Sherlock Holmes in that they are clean and fast-paced mysteries. The biggest change from Arthur Conan Doyle’s original work is Sherlock Holmes is much older, married and his spouse goes along for most of his adventures. Holmes’ spouse is usually the character telling the story, too. The narrator is Jenny Sterlin who does a wonderful job changing voices for the characters with a very clear British accent. I often recommend this series to patrons who are looking for a new mystery author to read. With the addition of the latest novel, Castle Shade, just released this year, there are over seventeen books in the series so far!

As You Wish book cover

As You Wish: inconceivable tales from the making of the Princess Bride 
by Cary Elwes  

The Princess Bride is one of my all-time favorite movies and I doubt I'm alone in that. As You Wish is the story of that unforgettable movie shoot from the perspectives of the actors and crew who brought it to life. In the audiobook, you get to hear these stories in their own voices, with much of the original cast and crew reading aloud their portions of the book.  And the Princess Bride is one of those wonderful movies where, when the curtain is peeled back, only becomes even more magical and enchanting!
