W is for Wasted

September 26th, 2014 at 01:52 pm

I've always been a fan of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone series. So I was delighted to check out the CD of her latest, W is for Wasted, at a Cracker Barrel on my recent trip. But it contains 14 discs, and I had only a week to listen to it before it's due back. I've gotten through disc 10. I'm hooked on the story. But I have to go to Cracker Barrel tonight and return it -- which is nowhere close! It will be a bit of a ride. I've decided I'll just make it a treat and have dinner there, too. Then I'll have to find a copy of the book at a library so I know how it ends! Lesson: don't check out a BIG book on a short trip!

I've decided not to do it tomorrow, because I have the birthday party, and lots to do at home -- a ton of laundry, some cooking, some cleaning. All the stuff I don't do during the week.

I also have to get to work on applying for the university job. I want to take some time writing the best cover letter I can, since my resume is already completed and in the hands of the director. I'll submit the resume again, to HR, along with the cover letter, but as far as content goes, it's a done deal.

    I just picked up my copy at the libray on Wednesday. I'm on disc 2. Love it so far, and I have you to thank! Smile

    Yes, I think it's one her best!

    Do you know if your library has audiobooks you can download? If so, maybe you could download it and finish it that way.

  4. CB in the City Says:

    Yes it does, Laura, and when I'm on my game I remember to check them out before trips. Right now I don't want an audiobook, because I'm not traveling any more!

    I listen to audio books when on the train for work, do you listen to anything on your commutes?

    Right now I am listening to podcasts about travel that I hope to do in the next couple of years if the house sitting business stays doing well (and after I find my IRA for the following year): Morocco, Peru, India, China, South Africa.

    No, I prefer to read visually, so I only listen to audiobooks when I have to watch the road! I think I prefer to imagine the narrator's voice rather than hear it!
