Now Reading…

I’m now reading/listening to:

The Hitchhiker’s Guide series by Douglas Adams

Hold up there let me explain. Yes I have read the series before but I just read Working for Bigfoot by Jim Butcher and they kept throwing around Hitchhiker’s Guide references and I just acquired the sixth book in the series so…I am rereading 1-5 and then for the first time, reading book six.

Harry Dresen made me do it. πŸ˜‰

  1. I just finished The Deception of Livvy Higgs by Canadian writer, Donna Morrissey. It is a superb read. Here’s the description:

    For two traumatic days, Livvy Higgs is besieged by a series of small heart attacks while the ghost of her younger self leads her back through a past devastated by lies and secrets. The story opens in Halifax in 2009, travels back to the French Shore of Newfoundland during the mid-thirties and the heyday of the Maritime shipping industry, makes its way to Wartorn Halifax during the battle of the Atlantic in World War II, then leaps ahead to the bedside of the elder Livvy.

    Caught between a troubled past and her present, worsening living conditions, Livvy is forced to pick apart the untruths told by her greedy, prideful father, Durwin Higgs, who judges her a failure, and her formidable Grandmother Creed, who has mysteriously aligned herself with Livvy’s father, despite their mutual hatred. Writing at the height of her power, Donna Morrissey creates unforgettable characters rooted in a harsh but beguiling landscape. In “The Deception of Livvy Higgs, “she weaves a powerful tale, the “Stone Angel “of the East Coast.

          1. I hope you can find it there because it is a book definitely worth reading. Morrissey has an uncanny ability to develop the most wonderful female characters in her books and her stories are spellbinding. I’ve been meaning to purchase an audio book but I am afraid listening to someone speak for that length of time might be too monotonous. πŸ™‚

              1. Well, after listening to the first chapter of your Breaking Curse project, I might have to invest in audio books. During the past year I have had to turn to reading glasses and because I read so much (about 140 books a year – not including poetry, articles, and grocery labels) the eyes grow weary rather quickly.

                1. Oh thank you! My coworker and fellow audio book addict is pushing me to set up a campaign on kickstarter to earn enough money to hire a professional voice actor. He said my narration was good but involving a voice actor to do the characters would make it better. I’m going to put up a poll asking what folks think about that. Recording and editing it myself is a lot of work but it’s also cheap. I will work for chocolate or peanut butter. I don’t know too many other folks who will work for so little. Wow, 140 books per year in print?!?!? That’s an accomplishment. I can do that with audio books but it’s not the same thing.

                  1. I think you should definitely look into a voice actor, simply because that’s what they do. I enjoyed listening to your first chapter and will listen to the second one. I did notice that as you moved along in the chapter, your voice became more comfortable and less ‘focused’ on getting the words right.

                    Ah, yes, most of us work for basic food loves, i know I write for nothing but the joy of creating lines and verses out of words πŸ™‚

                    Yeah, I love the feel of a book, the smell of the pages, the way it holds me back and I haven’t really been able to read longer texts on a screen. i was given an E-Reader but have never turned it on. I can barely get through poetry and short articles on a computer screen. So, moving to audio might be a great way to increase my ‘reading’ potential πŸ™‚

                    1. It worked for me. Audio Books I listen to. Paper and ebooks sit around waiting for me to have the time to crack them open. I write for the love of it too and because my characters ambush me everywhere I go. They want their story told. I am their faithful scribe. Anything not connected to writing (like audio editing) requires a food bribe. πŸ˜‰ I’ve heard good things about the readability of e-readers and that they don’t tire the eye as much as screen reading on other devices. I own too many devices though to add that one to the mix. So I will keep reading on my smartphone or pc.

                    2. πŸ™‚ i have a laptop – that’s it! And, a library full of books, which I purge every year and donate to kids who cannot afford them (I keep the ones i really love for my own pleasure)…

                      I love the way you approach writing – a scribe doing your characters’ bidding πŸ™‚
