i just got a library card for our little local library and immediately checked out a stack of audiobooks. it is one of the few ways i can find time to enjoy a book while the shop is going through it's growth spurts as all my "spare" time is devoted to sewing and embroidery for the shop...actually all my time is, what am i saying?! it's also a refreshing change to just sitting and stitching in front of the ole tellie.
when it comes to "real" books, i love a good biography or historical piece but when it comes to audiobooks i'm looking for something a bit lighter and with a quicker pace that does not require all my brain power. steve berry is therefore perfect on audio as i seem to just breeze through my work while being completely entertained! i also got the next book in ariana franklin's medieval csi-type series and the first book in the outlander series....it's um, 28 disks, gulp! i hope i can manage it on audio as i'm really excited to read them at earthbound inspiration's suggestion. i do have some intricate custom requests in right now and these should definitely help me work my way through the to-do list!
so, between that and my mom visiting from my home state of michigan (say yah to the up, eh?!), posts are going to be a bit sparse here this week but i promise i'll be back in full force as soon as i can! i got some free museum passes from the library as well so now i can afford to take her to my favorite museum in the whole wide world, the isabella stewart gardner museum! and hey, here's hoping she brought lots of cashola to take her little girl out to eat in boston's north end ;)
