Book It!

I’m back at work now, so even my available time for listening to audiobooks has dropped.  But, I am still trying to make time to do a little bit of reading. I was able to finish 2 audiobooks this month, and made some progress on a couple of real books. Speakers of the Dead Speakers…

Back to School

Yesterday was my first day back in the office.  It went surprisingly well.  Milli managed not to fuss too much, and we got her to the sitter and me to the office with 10 minutes to spare.  I can only hope that things will continue to go so smoothly. The only problem I really had…

Book It! – Audiobooks Are Thrilling

Having Mildred has really cut into my reading time in the last couple of months, so I made it a point to go to the local library and renew my membership early this month.  One of the great things about my library is that they participate in Overdrive so, along with being able to check…
