is listening to a book
I have discovered downloadable books and I think I am in heaven!
First it started with me checking out a Playaway Book called Blessed are the Cheesemakers
which I listen to while I cleaned the house the past week getting ready for the birthday party and put some of the things back right that had gotten moved around while we work on our bedroom…
Having a good story to listen too made the work so much more enjoyable and I felt like I was finally catching up on my fiction “reading” (my “want to read” list is always so much longer than my actual “get to read” list you see…)
Well once I finished Blessed are the Cheesemakers (which I would absolutely recommend – very cute book and not too fluffy, but not super serious and heavy either. I think it’s title fits it perfectly in tone!) I found that I needed something else to listen to quickly (still more cleaning to be done) and I found that I liked listening while I walked the dog and glittered banners as well.
Distressed that I wasn’t going to have time to get to the library soon enough, I remembered that our library can come to us – by way of the internet and that there were tons of books available for download (free!) on the library’s website, which is where I found my next book
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society which was an wonderful, delightful and engaging book. Highly recommend this one for sure!!
My sweet man rustled up an old MP3 player of his for me to download the book too and now I can take with me anywhere I need to go, instead of only being able to listen in my studio.
Now that I have finished The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (wow that is a long title!) I am on to Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, and more cleaning and glittering. I will let you know what I think of this one when it is finished – unless you have read and can tell me what you thought of it…
Also, when I get done with this book, what should I read (listen to) next?? What has been your favorite read this summer?
