The Lost Art of Gratitude - Alexander McCall Smith Ahhhh. As comforting and enjoyable as a warm bath on a cold evening. This is the 3rd Sunday Philosophy Club book I've listened to read by Davina Porter and I love her voice. She does lots of different Scottish accents (although I must admit her American accents aren't quite up to snuff) and she enunciates so beautifully that she improves my own enunciation after I have been listening! I found it interesting that my 7-year-old son kept requesting I turn it on in the car. The vocabulary is pretty intense and the story is, well, kind of boringly adult. But he loves it! Go figure.
