It occured to me that you haven't a clue what beauty awaits you in "The Canterville Ghost"!

This was subscriber-only audio which now lives in the Shoppe. It's such a hidden gem of Oscar Wilde's I started to feel bad that more of you didn't know how fantastic is is.



This is most of the first bit. There are three parts which make up the whole book. If you want it, you can get it here.

The Age of Innocence starts June 28, 2013.

In my effort to be more efficient, I've also created two email lists:

Hope that's good and useful for y'all!

See you in two weeks!

Hi there!

We're fine!

The quake was big and long and we've been cleaning up a bit, but no one hurt and nothing major was damaged.

Just wanted to let you know and thank you all for the kind emails!  Off to work on Bernice!

Very little to report and very little time to do it in. Tucker's Walk Winery, Kentwell Hall's Tudor historical reenactment niftyness (go Lorna!) and a video of the same. I'll have these shownotes serve for 208 "Bubbly", 209 (available 5/27, "The Shipping News"), 210 (available 6/3, "¿Donde Esta?"), and maybe even 211 (on 6/11, "Homecoming"). Book talk will start super soon on all, so don't bother to fast forward. We depart May 27th and will visit:

  • Fri 5/27--Grand Canyon; stay at Grand Canyon
  • Sun 5/29--Old Faithful; stay at Sheridan or Gillette
  • Mon 5/30--visit Devil's Tower and Custer Battlefield

Listen to 208 audio And this widget might actually work to stream on-the-fly podcasts from my phone. Sing with me now: "On the Road Again... Just cain't wait to get On the Road Again..." Where's my John Denver CD...?
