    The Sleepwalker’s Guide looks interesting. I like the cover.

    I still haven’t tried any audio books. I used to listen to the on my way to work, but since I retired I am not in the car long enough and I can’t sit down long enough at home.

    ENJOY your reading week.

      I never sit and listen. I use my mp3 player and listen while doing household chores or gardening.

        Gotcha….the only problem is that I don’t have an mp3 player. 🙂
