What are you listening to on Audible?

Another month has rolled by, another credit has popped up in my Audible bank, and I'm in need of inspiration.

I have just scrolled through 4772 results when I blithely typed "comedy" in to the search box. Before I tackle the 13,126 results for "bestseller biographies and memoirs", I wondered if there was maybe an easier way?

And here I am. And here you are.

To get the party started, I can recommend:

* Just A Minute: Classic Collections. Timeless comedy in neat half hour chapters from the likes of Kenneth Williams; Clement Freud; Nicholas Parsons et al with a full running time of about 10 hours.

* The Museum of Curiosity with John Lloyd and guests (From the creators of QI). Their series collections run to about 11 hours.

*An Astronauts Guide to Life on Earth by Chris Hadfield, narrated by Chris Hadfield. Superb.

Pretty much any Irvine Welsh book but particularly "a decent ride".

Many of these are read by Tam Dean Burns in a Scottish accent & are written in Edinburgh colloquial. Winners every one.
