This week’s topic can be summed us as “it’s complicated.” Or is it?
Favorite Non-Written Novels
–This was a hard topic to name, but this is about all books that are not ‘written’ novels! So graphic novels, comics, manga, audiobooks, etc. Shed some light on books in other forms.

Book I gave back in print but had it become an all-time favorite when I listened to it.
The audio just plain made it come alive. I’ve written before about liking some books only in audio (No 1 Ladies Detective Agency, 44 Scotland Street–both by Alexander McCall Smith) and hating change in readers (i.e. Stephanie Plum series).

Downton Tabby by Chris Kelly
