Admittedly, I am in a stage of life where I do not get much opportunity to sit down and read books. Instead, I/we listen to audio books all day long while working in the studio. It's a great way to keep us (*ahem* me) literate. We joined Audible last year and it has been well worth every penny.
One of the most thoroughly entertaining books we've listened to has been Julian Rubinstein's, The Ballad of the Whiskey Robber. I fell in love with the main character, Atilla and all of his habits. It's the true story of a Hungarian bank robber, a hockey goalie, Transylvania and a country in transition. You won't regret sitting down to read it or spending a few days listening to the audio version (which is read by the author). And, if you're like me, you might briefly romanticize whiskey...until you drink too much, then you'll regret ever drinking the stuff.
