Dallas... your bio and pictures are amazing. I've only been able to skim them at work but I will devour them tonight.

A Short History of Nearly Everything sounds interesting. Good your introducing them to books at such a young age. My parents never did anything like that with me.

As a stay-at-home mom to two young boys, I LOVE audiobooks because I can share them with my children (ages 6 & 8) without getting a sore throat from reading aloud. We have listened to all of the Harry Potter books and they are fascinated by "A Short History of Nearly Everything" by Bill Bryson. They want to listen to that one over & over. Lately, we have been playing Dawkins' "The God Delusion" in the car and they go silent in the backseat.
Good stuff!

Lydia, I really like audio books as well because I can listen to them at work or while cooking or doing chores. I have a lot of horror short stories on audio (mostly Poe, LeFanu, etc.). I've listened to all the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings on audio, but it is not good unless the person doing it really knows how to read to someone.

Tell me more about Kindness in a Cruel World. If you like The First Human, you might also like Jared Diamond's Collapse, and Guns, Germs and Steel.

I commute daily for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. So most of my reading is done per audio. I try to get some reading in at night and I in downtimes I'll have something to read on my phone. Right now I am reading Kindness In A Cruel World: The Evolution Of Altruism by Nigel Barber. I am listening to The First Human: The Race to Discover Our Earliest Ancestors by Ann Gibbons and I am rereading The Origen of Species on my i phone. I LOVE technology;)

Just got this via eSkeptic:

Free Audio Download of a Chapter from "Why Darwin Matters", by Michael Shermer.

In the opening chapter of Why Darwin Matters, Michael Shermer recounts his voyage to and research in the Galapagos islands with Frank Sulloway as they retraced Darwin’s footsteps to better understand how the British naturalist discovered natural selection; Shermer then explains what evolution is, and how he began college as a creationist and how, in time, he came to realize that evolutionary theory was true and one of the greatest explanatory theories in the history of science.

Hello Jennifer, welcome to AN. I know there are quite a few librarians on here (I really respect librarians, btw), and I think there might even be a librarian's group on AN, under the groups tab.
