No Sit Book Club – December 2021

I spent a lot of time in the kitchen in December – holiday baking – and I also had to drive quite a bit more than usual for family and friend get togethers, so I finished several audiobooks. Here are some highlights! The Last Graduate, by Naomi Novik – This is the second book in Novik’s Scholomance series and continues the story of student Galadriel “El” as she continues her highly dangerous magical education. I … Read more

No Sit Book Club – November 2021

For November I had to switch to mostly inside audiobook listening and I did a lot of it while cooking, baking, and cleaning the house. Audiobooks and vacuuming go really well together if you happen to have some noise-cancelling headphones! <– Highly recommend! I still borrow audiobooks on CD for my car to listen to while I’m driving. Using Libby works well, too – I use the Libby app on my phone and listen wherever … Read more

No Sit Book Club – August 2021

I started the month of August off by breaking my left pinky toe – you wouldn’t think something that small would hurt so much! The doctor put me in a boot and my activity was limited for a couple of weeks, so I actually read more print books than listened to audiobooks this month. Here are a couple, though, that I did enjoy: Laziness Does Not Exist, by Devon Price – This book by Dr. … Read more

No Sit Book Club – October 2021

This month has been really busy and there’s been so much less daylight, too (boo). It’s about time to start hibernating (with a good book). I was distracted a little from audiobooks this month by a teen/tween graphic novel series called Space Boy, by Stephen McCranie. I borrowed the first book from another library and liked it so much I ended up buying the whole series for our collection (because I think everyone should read … Read more

No Sit Book Club – September 2021

It’s suddenly October! I have mixed feelings. I miss the long days of summer – it’s getting harder to find daylight hours to do things outside, whether that’s bike rides or kayaking or gardening or whatever. The sun either isn’t up when I am, or it’s going to bed. There’s still so much I want to do while the weather is nice. But I am also looking forward to FALL STUFF. Like apple orchards (and … Read more

No Sit Book Club – July 2021

July has flown by, and for me it’s been filled with audiobooks. I’ve been listening to books in the car, and while I’m working in the garden and around the house. Since it’s been so dry, I’ve been watering my plants pretty regularly and listening to books makes that chore a bit more interesting. Here are some books I listened to this month (click on the titles/links for a more in-depth synopsis/review): Wild Bird, by … Read more

No Sit Book Club – June 2021

Hello audiobook-listening friends! I hope you’re having a great summer. I decided to focus on some gardening projects this month, so I’ve been listening to audiobooks while I’m weeding, planting, and doing yardwork. Time really flies by when you have a good reader, a good story, and endless work to do. I stayed out one night until I couldn’t see what I was doing anymore. 🙂 I also spend a fair amount of time driving … Read more
