#ooKboOkcluB-ers, looook who I found on YouTube! Mark Reads the Discworld series videos! I have no idea what I was initially on YouTube for or even what I was searching. Whatever that thought was about somehow led me to discovering Mark Oshiro‘s channel. From here on out I‘ll be listening to his readings to keep me on track with the #TerryPratchett #EpicBuddyRead.

AnansiGirl NSFW: occasional F-bombs are dropped, so listen with earbuds if out in public or around small kiddos. For easier navigation I recommend “mark reads (name of Discworld title)” in the search bar.

1. Nearly 10 years ago I met work friend Amy walking alone one cold, dark December morning 2 blocks from the job we both since left.
2. Work parking lot 3 years ago I ran outside to snap a pic of the sunset with a rainbow.
3. Peonies remind me of carefree days wandering the woods surrounding childhood home.
