Today, chapters 56-59; THE PAYOFF!
Thu, 17 August 2006
Today, aside from chapters 53-55, we talk about accordions, my love of the word "odious," (isn't it great?!) and I finally take Amy up on her suggestion weeks and weeks ago!
Namely: I just read and really dug To Shield The Queen, by Fiona Buckley. Actually, I didn't just read that. I read the first three books in the series.
I also have finished the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde, but my books are in boxes so I can't read you any bits from that. However, if you love books, and have a wicked sense of humor, The Eyre Affair is for you!
I'm thinking that instead of a poll, I just want everyone to look at the librivox.org cataloge and tell me what you like. I'll take the one with the most emails. I think I'll putter around with some of the short works first, just to give you some variety, then dive into another long book.
Email me your thoughts at MamaOKnits AT Gmail DOT com.
As always, Pride and Prejudice is narrated by Annie Coleman. Intro music provided by GarageBand.com which connected me with Joshua Christian’s "Chasing Hiro."

I'm relegated to podcasting from my local coffeehouse again, sorry about that. The ambient noise is MUCH worse than before as this joint has tile floors--a local hazzard. Apologies. I should have DSL at my Mom's house by tonight, but I wanted to get this posted before that. I'm already mighty late by previous East Coast standards.
The trip, however, was successful, and we're all here safe and sound. Though, this morning's news filled me with dread as my darling husband has to fly back to New York saturday morning.
World War IV, is what I'm hearing. WWIII was the Cold War, according to People I Trust.
Can't we all just get along?
Even 'Liz and Darcy?
This week, chapters 50-52!
But not before a little

Chapters 47-49! Next week, I hope I can find my microphone...
Well, it's August 3rd, and I'm on the road! Chicago, Sioux Falls, Deadwood and on to LOVELAND COLORADO--home of Interweave Press.Well, it's August 3rd, and I'm on the road! Chicago, Sioux Falls, Deadwood and on to LOVELAND COLORADO--home of Interweave Press...
How do I love thee...let me count the ways.
So the title of the podcast? Because my son is a questioner...well...so am I, so...apples/trees, you get the picture.
I fully expect this road trip to be one of fun and learning. The country is so big and so wonderful...I feel an Emily-from-Our-Town-Moment coming on!
If there is internet access and time, you'll hear some audio from the road. If not, you'll notice this post popping up, and a small-ish podcast appearing in your iTunes ontime.
Because I love you!
