I'm trying to read more and to do that I am going to bed earlier (as that is the only time I read usually) and I am thinking of reading some audio books while I clean, knit, organize etc.
I am also wanting advice on what is the best method for listening to audio books while being active such as walking outside or doing outside activities like painting, gardening, etc.? I'm not up on the latest tools for this so I would appreciate any advice and brand names that you endorse.
Meanwhile, I am almost finished but still reading Cold Sassy Tree on my tablet and it is very entertaining and an easy read for sure. I have the next (and last that I'm aware of) book, Leaving Cold Sassy so I'll be picking that up as soon as I finish the first one.
I did finish this book by Sharon Short and it was darn good! She's a good writer and it was a great story. "A moving tale of exploration and love --human and canine--that dares to believe the impossible". I'll be looking for more books by her.
"How one woman's dream of moving to Vermont, raising children, chickens and sheep and running the old country store pretty much led to one calamity after another." There are also lots of great Vermont cheese recipes in the back. I've already made the braised short ribs...yum! And tonight I'm making the cheesy grits. I can't wait for those! Another author that is going on my "author watch list" to see if she has other books.
Some of you may be familiar with it as it was made into a series for PBS. It is based on the "true life adventures" of Jennifer Worth who was a midwife at a convent in postwar London's East End slums.
"an unforgettable story of motherhood, the bravery of a community, and the strength of remarkable and inspiring women."
