I have discovered the joy of audio books! Until recently, I often lamented the fact that there were not enough hours in the day to do as much reading as I'd like, because I also like to knit and these are two sedentary activities that I can't spend all day doing, as much as I'd like to. So, I've combined my two great loves by listening to audio books WHILE I knit! Genius! So I've been gobbling up the audio books. I recently finished Artemis Fowl, by Eoin Colfer which I enjoyed very much. I didn't realize the title character is actually the villain! Anyway, it's a terrific story about a human boy who sets out to steal gold from the fairies. It is smartly written and the action is exciting, and the voice of the reader mesmerizing! I highly recommend this book.
So after finishing Artemis Fowl, I have started listening to Chasing the Falconers, by Gordon Korman after hearing such positive reviews from students and teachers who have read this series and I'm enjoying it very much, I have hard time putting it down! I'll post a review when I've finished it.
So that's it for now. Please feel free to comment, whether you agree with me or not, or recommend a book that you think I should read or listen to. And have a great day!
