Happy weekend to you all!


Check out this read on Amazon.
I'm still on this one. It's 703 pages and I'm almost halfway through. Having 3 jobs really gets in the way of reading sometimes.....
I'm posting early due to work, but the IG56 will be added after work tonight.
Here is my snippet from page 296 on my kindle, about 42%...

Audio books vs Ebook? If the world stopped printing books which would you prefer between the two?
A: Ebook, definitely. I get distracted too easily for audio books.

  3. I love audiobooks but can only listen when I am doing something mindless like computer games or puzzles, or walking the dog. My book was Where the Crawdads Sing

  6. I agree with you about ebooks vs. audio. Definitely ebooks for me for the same reason. I get distracted easily. Have a great weekend!

  7. That cover is fabulous. And such a long book. I love that once in a while. Sounds like he has a decision to make.
    Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful weekend, Freda:)

  8. Love the cover, but that's a lot of pages. It would take me months to get through it! Hope you enjoy the read.
    Happy Friday!

  10. I don't know how you do it with three jobs. I can see how reading time would be precious in that case. I haven't read anything by Maas before, but I have heard great things about her books.

    My choice would be e-books too. I do enjoy audiobooks, but they don't quite fit into my life right now the way they do for others. I understand the distraction issue--that's true for me too.

    Have a great weekend.

  11. I loved Empire of Storms... Except the ending. If I'd known about the ending, I'd have waited until KoA was out before reading it, lol. Of course, now I have KoA, I'm too scared to read it.
    Whoever said readers were logical people?!

  12. I used to get distracted when listening to audio books, too, but since I started knitting I can do both. I listen as much as I read these days.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
