Audiobooks aid my card creation

February 9, 2018 2018, Discussion Posts 2

Last year I listened to more audiobooks than ever before and it was all because I made a lot of cards last year. Usually I only listen to audios when I’m in my craft room. I don’t use headphones. I like to just listen using my phone as the audio plays loud and clear while I decide what kind of card I’m going to create and then get busy and create it. I guess I must use two different parts of my brain when I listen and create, because I do really get into a good book while making my cards. (I do sometimes listen outside my craft room when… Read more »

My favorite books so far this year…

My favorite books so far this year…

June 10, 2014 2014, Top Ten Tuesday 15

I haven’t participated in a Top Ten Tuesday meme for quite a while. Several weeks I’ve meant to, but things have always come up! Anyway, this topic–Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far This Year–is one I’ve been thinking about because I’ve read a lot of good books already! The Broke and the Bookish blog hosts Top Ten Tuesday. In no particular order… Caszandra by Andrea K. Host (science fiction/fantasy, Grade: A)–this was the first book I read this year and is the last book in the Touchstone series. I like this series very much. Pivot Point by Kasie West (young adult fantasy, Grade: B+)–this isn’t a perfect book (what is?!!),… Read more »

Audiobook challenge update

Audiobook challenge update

May 31, 2014 2014, Audiobook Challenge, Reading Challenges 2

I’m participating in the 2014 Audiobook Challenge hosted by Hot Listens and The Book Nympho blogs. I didn’t know June is Audiobook Month so I’m going to challenge myself to listen to one book a week during June! I have quite a few audiobooks by now since I’ve joined Audible and I’m downloading the two free books from Sync each week this summer and also download books from my library or find them on CD. At the beginning of the year I said I’d listen to 5-10 audiobooks this year. I didn’t listen to any audiobooks last year so this is a big jump for me! This is my update… Read more »

Sunday Post–May 18

Sunday Post–May 18

May 18, 2014 2014, Sunday Post 6

  The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. I like this meme because it gives me an opportunity to take a look back at last week and forward to next week in both my personal life and my blog and book life! I also like to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading. This is a great meme to take part in every week and I thank Kimba for hosting it! Last Week Around the house I’ve been in Des Moines all week. My daughter and I have packed boxes and delivered them to her new house all week… Read more »
