Trying to finish reading the last few pages, while my buddy Eddie sits with me. Helping support the arm...

I felt like this one was far out into space. And not in a good way.

Spotted this with good ratings here on #litsy, so decided to give it a listen. Covers a historic period I frequently research (US Civil War) and a unique view point...

Skipping Christmas | John Grisham
Mehso-so

I'd say many of the characters are caricatures and two dimensional image of small town USA. But for what it offers, it was entertaining. Worth recommending to others.

I forgot to take my George Orwell multivitamins with my big bowl of Big Brother Os.

vumblereads Lol! Careful, they might put you in room 101. 3w

I admit the last book had some severe triggering scenes that I don't remember. But the overall series is great. So going to push through.

Well, my next audio book isn't presently listed, so I'll use a blank journal as a place holder for now.

Always good to learn what other writers do, so I can see if it improves my writing routine any.

I just ... I can't. I gave it 6 hours of the 20 hour audio book. The plot moves so slow. There was so much unneeded exposition.

So the short story so far has minimum link to the primary story. Lots of death and fear.
