I have just returned from 1950’s England.
Tomorrow, Terry Pratchett and Stephen Briggs will visit. I will giggle, laugh out loud, and be dazzled by their sheer brilliance of language while I clean my house. I created this illustration out of my love of great writers, and the brilliant narrators on the audio versions. In 1996 I became a devotee to the magic of audio books, and have continued racking up over 500 books each year. A talented writer and a masterful narrator can transport your entire imagination into whatever world you may be in need of. Free for the asking through your public library. Just download and play!
In a time when pandemic fatigue, anxiety, politics, and the economy is wearing out our hopefulness, escaping into a wonderful book can refresh your body, mind and soul.
Take a break, take a walk, take a friend in your backpack, on your kindle, phone, or in your ears. You will feel less isolated, less stress, learn amazing things, and feel as if many of the characters are your best friends.
Since I am always searching for intelligent, witty, clever and terrific books and series (I can get so attached….) please let me know if you have any suggestions!
and as always, thank you!
