Not my usual audiobook selection, but this one sounds like perfect entertainment for today‘s 12 hour road trip. 🚗🚗🚗🚗🚗🚗

DivineDiana That‘s a long road trip! Where are you heading? 5d

SW-T Safe travels 😊 5d
wen4blu @DivineDiana Heading home after dropping my daughter at school. I didn‘t have a book on the way down and I95 has some long, boring stretches. 4d

I listened to this one while #audiogardening, but feel like I missed a lot. Since it‘s only 4 hours long, I may give it another listen when I‘m not as distracted by never-ending weeds.

Current #audiobook. I‘m finding it equal parts thought provoking and annoyingly frustrating.

The House of the Seven Gables | Hawthorne Nathaniel

Finished another book on serial reader!

I picked this as a re-read, but the more I read the less I remembered of the story. Either it was a DNF the first time through or a selective memory block. 🤔

Tamra I love Hawthorne! 2mo
bookwrm526 I‘ve tried to read this one a few times but I always just sort of...wander off...serial reader might be a good way to finally finish it! 1mo

Rainy day plans.

JenlovesJT47 Just a heads up! My husband was supposed to mail your package on Tuesday (I don‘t drive), and due to his work schedule he was not able to mail it until yesterday morning, but it should be there by tomorrow. I‘m so sorry it‘s late! He told me to tell you it‘s his fault (he didn‘t tell me right away that he didn‘t mail it on time 😆) and he‘s sorry! Again, apologies! I hope you enjoy it once you get it! ❤️ 3mo
wen4blu @JenlovesJT47 considerate it serendipity! I'm actually out of town today and will be back tomorrow, so it's perfect. No worries! 3mo

I always have an audiobook in the car for unexpected traffic jams. Like today, where the wait time is 40+ minutes just to drop off donations for the semi-annual rummage sale. On the plus side, their book tent is set up like a store, complete with wood shelves and everything sorted by genre and author. I'll be back on sale day!
