Re: Annoying words

OK. Not a word, but a phrase: “At this point in time” drives me nuts! It gives me a mental image of some guy in front of a giant sized map of the stars, running back and forth with a pointer, stating: “Not At THAT point in time, (running over to a different area of the map,) “But at THIS point in t...

Re: One Book A Week Club 2019

My list of books read in May is rather slim. I abandoned the one "real" book I was reading, " Gentlemen of the Road " by Michael Chabon. Life kept interrupting, so I eventually lost the thread of the story and lost interest in it. I don't think I'll try reading it again, though I think it would be a...

Re: One Book A Week Club 2019

I just finished reading The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo. Oh my goodness, such a beautiful book but soooo sad. Victor Hugo is past master at wordsmithing! There are just layers and layers of meaning in this book. Rachel I’ve only read this once, but it was unforgettable. After reading you...

Audiobook Narrating

I found this interesting article link in the Gutenberg Facebook page and copied it to the LibriVox Readers and Listeners Facebook group. Thought people who don’t use Facebook would enjoy it, too.

Re: One Book A Week Club 2019

Another month gone by. Time for me to post books read (or listened to) in March. Several BBC radio programs here. Not all of them complete books, but a nice way of "reading" when other projects give me less sit down reading time. " Sherlock Holmes vs Dracul a" by Loren D. Estleman. BBC Radio Enterta...

Re: One Book A Week Club 2019

Apparently I haven't posted anything yet, so here's my list for January. Some of the "reading" I'm doing this year is actually listening to BBC radio dramas on the archive.org site. Even though a lot of these are based on books, technically they aren't. I think of them as audio versions of Readers' ...
