Oryx and Crake | Margaret Atwood
post image

This was a very different dystopian world than Atwood created with The Handmaid‘s Tale, but still so good. I can‘t wait to read the rest of the trilogy - this got me through a full day of #audiocleaning yesterday as well as some #audiocrochet

Mitch Ive read the first one too - and loved it, must get back to that world soon. PS - love the crochet... that's a skill that has sadly passed me by! 1w
SamAnne I love this trilogy! Perhaps my favorite is the 2nd in the series, After the Flood. All three gave me very disturbing dreams though. There has been a rumored HBO series based on the trilogy. 1w
sprainedbrain I adore this trilogy! Just finished it this summer. ❤️ 1w
rwmg @SamAnne Yes, the middle one was my favourite too. 1w
SamAnne And there would be the mornings listening to NPR: “Scientists have perfected growing human livers in pigs.“ NOOOOOOOO! Or, “Scientists have made strides in growing chicken meat in the lab.“ Noooooo! I loved the trilogy because Atwood does her research and she incorporated so much “on-the-cusp“ technology in the novels, we could hear about it on NPR while reading the book.

Did a little #audiocooking and #audiocleaning this morning. Now time to sit for a bit with a #bookandsnack I'm way behind on this #LMPBC #TeamCanada pick but I plan to have it finished this week. Hoping to make some progress this afternoon

Love the tagged book so far. Today is reserved for some house keeping stuff... Doing the laundry, vaccum cleaning, dishwasher... 😒 Not too exciting. Loving my viking mug. 😊

Another #catsoflitsy moment - I‘m trying to do some #audiochores while listening to a #spookyread but it seems like Elliot would prefer I play with her instead of doing laundry (one of her fave games is zoom & spin in the laundry basket 😹). I‘ll indulge the cuteness for a few minutes, then get back to #audiocleaning 😄

Soubhiville That‘s adorable! 1mo

Trying to find an interesting audiobook on either Hoopla or Overdrive today. I have tons of #audiocleaning to do. It's Thanksgiving weekend here this weekend and I'm hosting, but my house is currently a wreck. Need to find something to keep me going!

Mdargusch I love Liane Moriarty audiobooks. They always make me laugh out loud. And the narrator is excellent. 1mo
Hestapleton This book made me laugh until I cried on audio! 1mo
sherryvdh @Mdargusch @Hestapleton Thanks! I'll keep an eye out for those! 1mo
Readswithcoffee The Harry Potter audiobooks are narrated by Jim Dale who is a voice master. I also like the Inspector Gamache series by Louise Penny. I LOVE audiobooks! 1mo

I wound up with a surprise day off today, so I guess it‘s fall cleaning day. #AudioCleaning

It doesn‘t feel like fall here yet- 82 F when I walked the dog at 8:30, looks like highs will still be in the mid to high 90‘s all week. I‘ll just pretend it‘s crisp out, since it‘s October. Lol. (Not that I mind, I enjoy the heat.)

MicheleinPhilly We just have to get through tomorrow and then it will finally feel like Fall! I can‘t wait! 2mo

I was doing some #AudioCleaning and organizing in my craft room tonight. Arya likes to keep me company by laying on top of the cedar chest and look out the window. 💖
