I do read, you know!

Rephrasing: I do listen to books, mostly. Have been listening quite a lot lately. One author I tried and failed to listen to though, was Terry Pratchett. (Sorry, Alex! I tried because I read those recent posts of yours ...) Three times I tried to listen to "The colour of Magic" but couldn't keep up [...]

A handful of books…

A handful of the books on my virtual bookshelf... quite multifaceted... It's really awesome to be able to choose whether to listen to a book or read it. For the time being, I prefer to listen - you can be almost anywhere or do almost anything while listening - but you can't get them all [...]

Memoirs are not my first choice of books to read, but if there are more of those like this one - I would for certain read more memories. Well-written, mindblowing, heartbreaking, mesmerizing, upsetting, interesting, agonizing, wonderful...... I just can't stop listening! During three [...]
