Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.4

Long time no see friends! I sort of disappeared from the blogosphere for a month because some changes occurred and all of the extra time I had for stuff sort of condensed into a few hours each afternoon. First up, I found a job! A friend of mine called me on a Sunday and asked if I’d be interested in working for her assembling jewelry in her warehouse, I said yes and I started that Tuesday. I’ve been there for three weeks and I’m loving it. It’s really relaxed, I can wear whatever I want, I know the manager (my friend’s mother), and it keeps me busy pretty much from the time I clock into to when I leave. I’ve been trying to find a way to keep up with my reading and everything I like to do, and I’m struggling a bit…but I’ve kind of decided that audiobooks are going to be a full-time thing now. I can only truly read on my hour lunch and if I’m not dead tired when I get home, but I can listen to audiobooks while I work.

It’s been a really great change of pace and I really needed this. Hopefully, I can get back to business here on the blog and find a rhythm that will work well.

Books Read

  • The Quest of the Dreamwalker by Stacy Bennett (Audiobook)
  • Tess of D’Urberville by Thomas Hardy
  • Silver Blaze by Arthur Conan Doyle

  1. Congrats on the new job! I’m jealous of your chance to listen to audiobooks while you work. I’ve tried doing that and end up tuning them out.

    Congrats on the job! And I just read Heir to the empire so I’m getting to know Thrawn and Mara Jade a bit. 🙂 I scooped up book two as soon as I finished- I’m kinda determined to give the EU a go even if it has been kinda set aside.

    Quest of the Dreamwalker has an amazing cover!

  3. That is fabulous that you get to listen to audiobooks on the job! If at some point you can buy a Kindle Fire, the small one is $49.99 and often goes on sale for $39.00, there is a great text-to-speech feature for ebooks, it even works on Netgalley ARCs, whch on a Kindle you get to keep – they don’t archive. I listen to my books on the bus to and from work and it is great to be abke to switch back and forth between reading and listening without having to buy the narration. 🙂

    • I have an old one my mom gave me when she upgraded, but I don’t think it’s the generation with text-to-speech. 😦 I’ll have to look into getting a new one eventually, that would fantastic for the thousands of ebooks I have stored away!

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed it, leave a comment and tell me what you think.
