Blink by Malcolme Gladwell
 
"Good Audiobooks for Dummies" by I.M. Heering
 
Kevin Smith Tough Sh*t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good [Book]
 
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig :o)
 
The Android's Dream. John Scalzi, narrated by Will Wheaton and friggin hilarious.
 
Shades of Grey, read by Gilbert Godfree
 
Games of thrones, dark tower series, we are alive audio drama podcast
 
+Brian Brushwood I'm still trying to find something as awesome as Ready Player One or the Daemon/Freedom series - thanks for suggesting those
 
I said this on twitter, but since you insist on crossposting, I'll mention it here, "On Basilisk Station", the first in the Honor Harrington series.
 
Not sure if you've listened to it already, but World War Z by Max Brooks is excellent
 
The Golden Compass.

It trumps all these other books being offered because it has ARMORED POLAR BEARS FIGHTING EACH OTHER.

The book is way better than the movie, in any case.
 
If you are in a the mood for something light but fantastic try The Supernaturalist by Eoin Colfer or The Thief Of Always by Clive Barker.
While they are both marketed as "Young Adult" I am in my 30s and thought they were true gems with themes that appeal to adults as well. A bonus with them is that I could give them to my kids to read as well, and found that they enjoyed them too, but for different reasons, which has led to some great conversations.
 
Lost Fleet Series by Jack Campbell
Troy Rising Series by John Ringo
 
It would be foolish of me to recommend any of his other works then because I know that once you read one you can't help but read them all.
 
Altered Carbon
Richard K Morgan
(cyberpunk noir)
 
Crooked LIttle Vein by Warren Ellis (he wrote the Comics Transmetropolitan and The Authority) It's a strange, loopy slight science fiction hard boiled detective story. The reader is great.
 
I know you do magic, but you can read audiobooks?
 
I don't know how you "read" an audiobook.
 
Born Standing Up by Steve Martin. Great memoir about his career. Should be right up your alley as an entertainer. He reads it.
 
Any of the Sharpe novels or Lord John novels/stories are great.
 
Darkly Dreaming Dexter :)
 
Good Omens, On a Pale Horse, Nimitz Class, Pest Control by Bill Fitzhugh
 
Anything by Neil Gaiman or Neal Stephenson.
 
Unfortunately, the book I just read and enjoyed, "MYST: The Book of Atrus" is not on Audible, nor are the rest of the series.
 
If you like Magic... and mystery check The Dresden Files.
 
To the young lady that Twilight: Breaking Dawn, I am sure +Brian Brushwood would want to read a book that is logical, Twilight is for teen girls and old horny women. It simply lacks credibility
 
Hey +Brian Brushwood wouldn't it be cool if you had a GoodReads account and we could see what you had already read so we wouldn't propose things unnecessarily?

Have you read/heard News from Gardenia by Robert Llewellyn? Quick read and quicker listen and, of course, the man himself reading his own book - I think you would like his Utophic vision of the future.

I think you might like listening to Keith Richards' Life, as I know I did, with a relatively large portion read by Johnny Depp and a chapter by the man himself.

I'm sure you've already listened to Penn Jilette's There is No God and God No! right???

Whatever you choose ... let us know!
 
+Erik Chillingworth 50 Shades is a piece of trash. And I'm not talking in a good sort of trashy way. it's a poorly written, immature, plagiarized load of drivel. If you value your intelligence, stay far far away.
 
Storm Front by Jim Butcher. Book 1 of The Dresdan Files. Read by James Marsters (Spike from Buffy). Excellent series, funny, sarcastic, and supernatural.
 
Anything by Manly Wade Wellman, or Karl Edward Wagner.
 
Across the Nightingale Floor by Lian Hearn, or would also recommend Daemon by Daniel Suarez.
 
I have to suggest "In to Thin Air" about fatal assault on Everest by Jon Krakauer. Very, very compelling audio book.
 
Any of the Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett. Though if I had to be specific, I would suggest Small Gods or Guards!, Guards!.
 
"Let's Pretend This Never Happened" by Jenny Lawson, a.k.a. The Bloggess. You won't be sorry. ;)
 
11/22/63 Stephen King plus time travel equals awesome
 
you look like a jersey shore douche bag
 
Starship Troopers, Heinlein. Just ignore the crappy movie and enjoy.
Translate
 
It's non fiction but I'm almost finished with Rational Optimist and it's a good read.
For fiction, have you read bitter seeds? Imagine WWII with Nazi xmen fighting British warlocks.
 
Company by Max Barry itll kill any desire you might have for a boring cubicle job instantly. And make you hilariously frustrated. His other books are good too.
 
It would help if we knew which books you HAVE read…

That said…

Dracula, by Bram Stoker.
Daemon and Freedom(TM), both by Daniel Suarez.
Two of my favorites are Spock vs. Q and Spock vs. Q: The Sequel.
 
I was going to suggest The Mote in God's Eye, but apparently the person who read it on Audible didn't get very good reviews...
 
Master and commander by Patrick O'Brien, get the Patrick Tull narrations
 
A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson. I find it very interesting and it keeps me entertained. Good luck.
 
Iain M Banks Culture Series of books starting with Consider Phlebas
 
Fur, Fortune, and Empire: The Epic History of the Fur Trade in America
 
Robert J. sawyer novels!!! (TV series Flash Forward was loosely based on the novel Flashforward)
 
Blind people have been "reading" books this way for decades. Not sure why people have such problems with the the use of the word reading for audiobooks.
 
Cloud Atlas, Shadows in Flight, 1Q84, Out of the Silent Planet, Ready Player One, Jennifer Government, Daemon, American Gods - Tenth Anniversary Edition, Doomsday Book.
 
I loved The Automatic Detective by A. Lee Martinez. All his stuff is great, but that one's my favorite.
 
Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami
 
You might like Lev Grossman's The Magicians. Maybe.
 
The Redbreast, by Nesbo. Awesome Norwegian mystery-thriller.
 
The Psychopath Test (nonfiction, lots of good random knowledge, interesting light psychology stuff, and a hil-a-rious accent from the author every time he says "psychopath")
 
The Host by Stephanie Meyer (vampires NOT included)
