My 2015 reading list

Last year (2015) was a surprisingly busy year for reading – 75 books?  I’m not sure why my list is so long compared to previous years as nothing really changed including my usual late-summer slump where I suffer a reading burn-out and read practically nothing for around 5-6 weeks. I did keep up the habit that I started in […]

Speed Listening Audiobooks

I posted last July that I like to listen to AudioBooks and how the iPhone Audible apps is oh so spectacular.
