it’s a mid week distraaaaaaaacttiiiiiiooooooon! (Oprah voice) hey guys, long time no distraction right? i have been dutifully saving great links left and right, but i feel like the internet has been a bit of a desert for me lately. truth is i wasn’t feeling well for about a week, and then it was my birthday (yay!) and then we went to the beach for the long weekend where there was hardly any reception – so i have been doing non-internet things like sleeping and reading.
i recently decided i want to get into the world of audio books, in an effort to walk more (my theory is that if i am engrossed in a good book i’ll just keep walking, right?) i have had a few great recommendations – like Lolita, which i didn’t think i would actually ever read, but i would certainly listen to Jeremy Irons talking for 11 hours. are any of you ardent audio book fans? got any stellar recommendations to throw my way? if in doubt, there’s always Harry Potter.
(also, i know it’s Friday, but mid-week is more like, a concept, ya know?)
