Wednesday Reading...um...Listening


Close up of front cover
Audiobook
Was at the library, looking over the shelves and found this, "Unlucky 13" by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro, and first published in 2014.  This is an audiobook on CD, and I'm listening to it in The Cat Car during my daily commutes.  I grabbed it because...well, duh...look at that beautiful black cat on the cover!

I am now on the third CD of nine, and it's a fairly interesting story, about San Francisco police officer and her friends who all pitch in to help solve mystery and murder.  No cat has appeared as a character or even living WITH a character yet.  Not what I've come to enjoy from James Patterson; it's kind of girly, in the way that MEN think women act, not the way we really do.  However, the underlying dilemmas are compelling, so I'll keep listening.  Also, I've randomly grabbed the 13th in the "Women's Murder Club" series, which is now on it's 16th book.

Goes to show, you should NOT judge a book by it's black cat cover!

I LURV BLACK CATS!

  6. wait.. no cat in that book?? false advertising!!

    I love audio books. My car no longer has a cd player so I need to get off my duff and find a way to play them during my commute because I really miss it.

    1. I've recently discovered that I can download audiobooks from the library for FREE; they would hook to my cell phone. My new Cat Car radio with Bluetooth and ISB port then makes it possible to listen to library books through my speakers! Cool, huh? Haven't tried it yet...

    1. The only people who are unlucky are the one's who DON'T HAVE a black cat in their lives...right!?!

  8. Mum has read a lot of Patterson's books. Most of Alex Cross and up to #5 in the Womens Murder club series.
    Now, she is taking a break from Patterson and reading other types of books.
    We also agree that people are unlucky if they don;t have a black cat ;)
