Audible had a good sale last week. Since then I read most of Sarah Vowell's The Partly Cloudy Patriot and about a third of Jon Ronson's Lost at Sea. Both are a collection of essays, both are witty and enjoyable but Jon wins out by a mile because his subjects are way more interesting. He looks into the lives of crazy / bizarre people, from Deal or No Deal contestants to Insane Clown Posse.

I also got The Red Circle by Brandon Webb because it was recommended by someone. All I know about it going in is that it is about Navy SEAL snipers and that the narrator is awful at pronouncing Navy jargon. We'll see.
