Hello! It has been a while since I posted one of these. I have been addicted to audiobooks for the past two years so I figured I would share some of my favorites. But I am focusing only on those narrated by the actual author because I have found I love it when the author narrates the book.
I am splitting these up into categories: general history, social issues, science, and memoirs. Also, these are only audiobooks that I have personally listened to.
