***Audiobooks-with-Benefits for Busy People***
Love the classics—or wish you did? *** No time to pick up a book? Not any more! *** This weekly annotated audiobook podcast presents curated classic literature in a serialized format. The host—Heather Ordover—"teaches to the joke" by filling in any relevant tidbits before listening to the next chapter of the book. *** Callers regularly send in voicemail comments for play on the air to keep the "book club" vibe going. *** The podcast has been in continuous weekly production since 2006 — our current book, "Sense & Sensibility" by Jane Austen, begins with episode 378.

Some things you didn't hear me talk about; some things you did. And the end of the book! The Librarian's Lament (don't you loathe hearing, "yeah, that's just your opinion..." when someone says something like, "the world isn't flat!"), and a killer library. Some things to do in the spring to help make the world a less polluted place...why can't they just make a kit!?! A Manifesto I can get behind. Freaky shark! Buy yarn here for the rest of January (in case you hadn't seen the Yarn Harlot's post--it's #5). And Teresa sent this link which tempted her even though she doesn't knit (Hey, Teresa, check out the Winter Spin-Off for some embroidery ideas! You could hookup with a spinner/felter/knitter!) My sister has asked me to knit her a special hat. Sadly, the pdf of the pattern is AWOL so I may have to begin my first adventure in faking a pattern. Whoo hoo! A list of courses Ruth alerted me to can be found here. No college credit, but MY! MY! look at the listings! And, of course, next week (if I'm available) we'll hear some short stories while we decide what to read next!
