    I listened to this on audio book! It's awesome story:

    Digital Gold: Bitcoin and the Inside Story of the Misfits and Millionaires Trying to Reinvent Money

    Even if you're not into it--you'll enjoy the narratives of all the crazy history behind bitcoin. It's almost like action/mystery LOL

    I've always loved comedy audiobook. This is Kathy Griffin's Celebrity Run-Ins My A-Z Index. Approximately 8.5 hours long! She goes through all of her celebrity run ins and tells quite hilarious stories from her past years. Enjoy!

    The Cruel Prince series, Tithe, etc.. Holly Black's books are generally VERY good in Audiobook format!

    The Song of Achilles is always nice to re-read/listen if you want to feel things and maybe cry..

    I'd highly recommend the Hobbit audiobook narrated by Andy Serkis for fans of LOTR/Tolkien. Andy Serkis does a phenomenal job at narration, and he makes the "Riddles in the Dark" chapter extra special/memorable (he is the voice actor for Gollum/Smeagol in the films, after all)

    I had no idea he'd done an audiobook for it. I haven't read the books since I was a tween and the movies were coming out and for whatever reason never thought to revisit it with an audiobook. I'm still rolling in audible credits because I'm a slave to big corporations, so maybe these will be my next purchase.

    I had stumbled across it by chance myself! I see that since then, he has also narrated the LOTR books. So I might purchase those!

    Oh, I actually misread your original comment to be that he'd done the Hobbit + The Trilogy anyway, so glad to hear my misreading was still correct!

    I listened to pretty much the entire Sherlock Holmes bibliography and it was quite a ride. I really enjoyed the short stories collection especially.
    So I do recommend if you love mysteries with interesting settings and payoff.

    I listened to I'm Glad My Mom Died and it might be because I was initially interested because I'd listened to a few episodes of her podcast, but I can't imagine consuming this in text. Hearing her voice tell her story just really adds so much to it.

    I dunno if you're into sci fi at all but I listened to Dune last year, the audiobook for it is pretty amazing. It has different voice actors for different characters (not all the time but during important chapters) as well as ambient music and noises. It makes it feel very immersive!
