What I’m reading

I haven’t posted my reading material in a while so I’ll catch up.

I’ve been working my way through Donna Leon’s mysteries that take place in Venice, Italy finishing both Suffer the Little Children (2007) and The Girl of His Dreams (2008).

I’m reading Laura Lippman’s novel And When She was Good and finished her novel The Girl in the Green Raincoat.

I just finished the book Reunion: A Search for Ancestors by Ryan Littrell

I’m still listening to audiobooks while knitting although I admit I’m still shocked at how much longer it takes to listen to a book than to read it. Tonight I finished Master and Commander by Patrick O’Brian and started listening to The Grace of Silence by Michele Norris.

While I usually enjoy a good biography I wasn’t sure I wanted to listen this one that focused on race issues or should I say the issues of race but it’s read by the author herself who grew up here in Minneapolis and I’m finding it very interesting and enjoyable.

  • That’s funny–I listen to audio books while I’m quilting or making dinner and I find its just the opposite. I zoom through audio books and plod through anything I actually read.

  • I just started listening to audio books and while I enjoy them I wish there was a “speed read” button! I’m working my way through the John Sandford detective books in order… I’ve read several of them over the years and our library has a nice audio collection. The ones I read that aren’t in audio I fly through.

  • It is funny that an audio book takes so much longer — perhaps it’s because we don’t read every word!
