An audio book app that isn’t just for little kids any more

News from Cool Mom Tech: Listening to compelling audio books has been my #1 way to prevent backseat squabbles between the kids as we do everything from a six-hour drive to Maine, to a 15-minute jaunt to gymnastics practice. And one of the best ways to get our hands on a seemingly limitless library of stories is with the Tales2Go app. So I was extra-pleased to learn how this audiobook service was planning to keep up with my ever-growing children. By adding even more tween titles, Tales2Go becomes much more than an app for pre-readers or young ones who aren’t ready to tackle the bigger novels on their own. It also becomes a way for tweens to enjoy age-appropriate stories wherever they are.  For struggling readers, this is a great way to give … Read entire article »

“VAMPIRE EMPIRE BOOK ONE: THE GREYFRIAR” (Audiobook Review)

News from FANGORIA: Posted by Abbie Bernstein Aug 21, 2012 There are a number of books that deal with the idea of vampires overtaking human civilization—the recent Guilermo Del Toro/Chuck Hogan STRAIN trilogy, for example—but VAMPIRE EMPIRE (Buzzy Multimedia), an audiobook written by Clay and Susan Griffiths and read by James Marsters, has a number of unique elements. For one thing, as we quickly realize in the first volume, THE GREYFRIAR, VAMPIRE EMPIRE takes place in an alternate history, in a year 2020 where Egypt is a major world power, air travel is commonly done in zeppelins, and vampires have their own species and civilization. This doesn’t mean that vampires and humans are cohabiting, amiably or otherwise (à la, say, TRUE BLOOD). The vampires rule most of the northern hemisphere and regard … Read entire article »

A fire at a Colorado nuclear weapons plant in 1969 could have wiped out the …

News from Salon: This is the latest installment of our new weekly audiobook column, The Listener. Every Thursday, Laura Miller or another top critic will recommend a great new title. The Listener is sponsored by Audible. Prior to 1951, American nuclear bombs were custom-built at the famous Los Alamos laboratory. The plutonium was produced in eastern Washington state, and the uranium enriched in Oak Ridge, Tenn. But the Cold War was on, and with it an arms race with the Soviet Union. The time had come for American nuke-making to move out of the boutique business and into mass-production. The Atomic Energy Commission spread the labor among 13 sites across the country. Arguably, the most critical was the secret plant operated by Dow Chemical in Rocky Flats, Colo., which smelted, purified and shaped … Read entire article »
