Let's Pretend This Never Happened
- A Mostly True Memoir
- Written by: Jenny Lawson
- Narrated by: Jenny Lawson
- Length: 8 hrs and 41 mins
For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris - Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut. Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives - the ones we'd like to pretend never happened - are in fact the ones that define us. In Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor.

A book I will listen to again
I don’t usually ever read a book a second time but this is an exception. One of the best audiobooks I’ve listened to. Jenny’s style lends perfectly to the audio format and her humour and storytelling were supremely entertaining. Loved it.
- A Novel
- Written by: Richard Wagamese
- Narrated by: Jason Ryll
- Length: 6 hrs and 51 mins
Saul Indian Horse is in critical condition. Sitting feeble in an alcoholism treatment facility, he is told that sharing his story will help relieve his agony. Though skeptical, he embarks on a heartbreaking journey from the present - and into the woods of Northern Ontario, where his life began in a snowy Ojibway camp. The tale that follows is one of great pain and great determination from Richard Wagamese, an author who "never seems to waste a shot" ( New York Times).

Must read! But listen at 1.25x!
This book evokes great feeling. I enjoyed the descriptive world given to us by the author and felt deeply all the mixed emotions of the narrator. It gives incredible insight into the native experience of the residential school system. A must read for all Canadians in my mind.
The performance was well done but painfully slow for my liking. However once I increased to 1.25x listening rate, it was perfect!
