Proust's Questionnaire Journal | Golding Notebooks
post image

https://theremightbecupcakes.podbean.com/e/proust-and-the-meaning-of-cupcakes/ I chose to do something unusual: I answered the Proust Questionnaire, which is basically the questions Samantha answered in Sixteen Candles, but more about life & death & less about going all the way. I had fun comparing my answers to those of Joan Didion‘s and David Bowie‘s, as well. #podcasts #theremightbecupcakes #proustquestionnaire #davidbowie #joandidion

Dogearedcopy ‘Hidden River‘ (by Adrian McKinty, narrated by Gerard Doyle) - A former Irish peeler comes to the US to solve a suspected homicide... So far, a much more slowly paced story than I had been expecting and the audiobook narrator doesn‘t seem as engaged either :-/ 2y
Librariana I'm listening to three - Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life, I'll Be Gone in the Dark, and 2y

kathedron Narrated wonderfully by Richard E. Grant 2y
Swe_Eva Listening to Sherlock Holmes, narrated by Stephen Fry. I could listen to that man reading me the phonebook! 💜 2y
Cathy12 Wicked Abyss by Kresley Cole and Good Omens. 2y
britt_brooke @Dogearedcopy Bummer! It‘s frustrating when the narrator doesn‘t seem into it. 2y
britt_brooke @Redwritinghood How is it? Not my typical kind of read, but it sounds like something I could try. 2y
britt_brooke @River_Voice Great narration makes such a difference! 2y
britt_brooke @Swe_Eva I‘m still relatively new to audio and haven‘t listened to anything narrated by him .... yet. 😁 2y
britt_brooke @Cathy12 I‘ve been waiting for this one on overdrive for a couple of months! 2y
Redwritinghood @britt_brooke I just finished and am getting ready to do my review. It‘s not great literature by any means, but it was action-packed and fun. Strong female character as well. 2y
Cathy12 @britt_brooke I just got it yesterday on Overdrive (audio). 🙂 2y

Duck Fried Rice, $2 glass of red house wine that turned out to be surprisingly delicious, and Joan Didion‘s Slouching Towards Bethlehem make for a wonderful way to end an enjoyable Sacramento layover. #bookandfood #JoanDidion

Just finished hour three of #24in48. It‘s off to bed for me. 😴 🛏 A few hours of sleep and then back at it!! 💪🏼I‘ve moved between four books this evening.

A short book to start the new year . This title is really just notes on the south and California , from projects that never came to be. Because Ms. Didion is so talented, her notes are more interesting and insightful than most writers polished product. But maybe I‘m just prejudiced, I love all I have read by her .#JoanDidion

The White Album | Joan Didion
post image
Mehso-so

If I listened to the whole audiobook, it‘s due in part to Susan Varon‘s spare, dry yet dreamy narration. White Album can be full of white noise due in part to the book magnifying certain cross-sections of society from bygone times, signifying nothing to contemporary readers. Her strongest essay is a comment on the Women‘s Movement, which alone is worth reading. #JoanDidion #TheWhiteAlbum #Essays

I recently sat down and watched the Joan Didion documentary, created by her nephew, Griffin Dunne. What an amazing woman! Now, I want to read all her works! Happy me, I recently received the gorgeous #PicadorModernClassics edition from the lovely people at @picador. I‘ve been dipping in an out and have been absolutely entranced.
