Welcome to the Rabid Readers Club!
To say I’ve been an avid (rather, a rabid) reader my whole life dates as far back as I can remember—to my jumping-out-of-my-skin with excitement when the Bookmobile would come into my neighborhood. Pippi Longstocking and her wild adventures on the high seas were a huge fascination for me. Such boldness! Such freedom!
Fast-forward to adulthood: I’ve been listening to audiobooks for more than 30 years. I initially started out listening to books on tape, strapping my clunky Sony® Walkman® contraption to my belt as I took long walks for exercise. Listening to books helped take my mind off the heat and humidity while I was exercising, and also was a great escape after the workday. But when Apple Computer® released their first-generation iPod® in 2001, that was it for me—I was an early and permanent convert to books in downloadable format. Audible.com came into being in 1997 and I became a subscriber shortly after purchasing that first iPod. My account says I now have 382 books archived in my library, but that can’t be right—that number sounds way too low, for about 22 years of subscribing!
Anyway, I love to talk about books and share the best ones I’ve read with other rabid readers. I’ll post my favorites here on a regular basis. Anyone who has a comment or who has a book to recommend is welcome to join the conversation!
