My mini-ipod is my favorite companions on these walks. I usually listen to at least four unabridged books a month. Before you think all that time is ‘walking’ time, I must clarify that much of it is ‘knitting’ time. Earlier this month I listened to The Sorceror’s Stone
and The Chamber of Secrets
to help me gear up for the Hogwarts Sock Swap
. This week I am listening to Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey
, one of the only remaining Austen books I have not yet read.
Speaking of Jane Austen, I received my Monkey Sock package from my British pal in the Monkey Sock Swap
. Royal Mail….cool…..of course I had to open it then and there and carry the contents back home in my backpack. My next post will be all about the incredible contents. And, as one of the characters repeatedly says in Sense and Sensibility,
“I am all astonishment!”
