You are a wonderful person who deserves wonderful entertainment, so you need to read BJ Novak’s book of short stories, One More Thing.
And by “read” I mean, ideally, “listen to,” as he performs it, with the help of a few guest stars, better than you can. And because this way you can be pounding the treadmill without sweating all over the pages or walking to work without getting hit by a car.
I almost never get to read fiction, let alone short stories, but these 62 — ranging from 17 seconds to 34 minutes — are huge fun and immensely imaginative. And a great way to try your ear at “books on tape,” if you haven’t.
Audiobooks are expensive if bought singly. But audible.com will let you try your first one free, so make it this one.
Allyoucanbooks (which I haven’t tried) has “only” 30,000 books to choose from, not 180,000 (I didn’t have time to check whether One More Thing was among them), but also you lets you try one free — and thereafter lets you download as many as you want for twenty bucks a month instead of just two a month, like Audible.
Quote of the Day
A penny saved may be a penny earned, but it's one boring penny. A penny invested, on the other hand, bounces around. It gets bigger one day, smaller the next. A bit player in the drama of global finance, that penny buys a guy a balcony seat in the theater of macroeconomics.~Susan Stewart
