    Like you, I am a real fan of audiobooks.

    My favorite so far this year has been Infidel, read by the author, Ayaan Hirsi Ali. It is her memoirs of leaving Somalia and her Muslim religion, becoming a Dutch citizen and member of Parliment, and arguing for the rights of Muslim women. It really knocked my socks off.
