Re: Audio books to listen to on the rowing machine

For anyone with any interest in Florida I would recommend "A Land Remembered" by Patrick Smith. Great story about a Florida family from the 1860's through the 1960's. The stories fiction, but there is a ton of actual historical events involved.

Just finished "One Second After" by William R. Forstchen and the follow up "One Year After". It's about the power going out due to an EMP attack. Very eye opening.

Thanks for the pointers. Had never heard of Forstchen or the books and looked them up. The plot sounds eerily up to date... Will put on my list.

I enjoyed the podcast series Sailing Stories. There first story was Brave or Stupid and they are now doing the book by the guy who invented the Cape Horn Wind Vane.
