I need some audio book recommendations. I just finished two on escaping Scientology, and I've done few on escaping polygamy (FLDS church). I don't need to stick to these topics, but I like memoirs and nonfiction on audio. Any titles you could ...

Just finished reading "Becoming" by Michelle Obama. It is a very good autobiography, talking about her childhood and life up until her husband left the white house. It's a nonfiction book that will likely interest even those who only read fiction.

Any science fiction fans here? My all-time favorite book, of ANY catagory, is DUNE, by Frank Herbert, but lately I've been reading the Galaxy's Edge series, by Jason Anspach and Nick Cole. If you like military sci-fi, it's a very entertaining series.
