Morning Meanderings… Do You Know What Tomorrow Is?

Good Morning!  What a week huh?  So much going on but I am working hard to keep on top of it all….  Audio Week (woo hoo!!!) is happening and if you did not see my giveaway you can still check that out, and the current mid-week audio thoughts are here:

Current/most recent audiobook:  I listen to 3 at a time (different locations people…. don’t be afraid! :razz:)  In my car is Every Last One by Ann Quinlin.  In my IPOD is Bossy Pants by Tina Fey (hilarious!), and in my kitchen CD player is the Maltaise Falcon (which honestly is freaking me out a bit… is is performed by The Hollywood Theater Of The Ear…. and it takes a bit of getting used to.)

Impressions:  One good, one great, one ummmm….. (you can guess which is which :D)

Current Favorite Audio:  So touch to choose but I really enjoyed The Art of Racing In The Rain by Garth Stein.  (*sob)  That’s all I’m saying. 

One narrator I wold choose over print:  I am not “there” yet.  When it comes to narrators, I am still a rooky.  Sitting on the bench waiting for the coach to let me in the game.  😛  (It’s early yet – first cup of coffee….)

Genres I most often listen to:  I really am all over the genre field.  I think with audio I am more daring… a classic or what looks to be a hard read I may try in audio and have had good luck with that. 

If given the choice I will always choose audio when:  When I am traveling.  I am actually bummed when I have to ride with someone somewhere as most will not tolerate my “do you mind if we listen to hours of audio?  😛

If given the choice I will always choose print when:  If it is a book I really want to know well, I need to be able to go back and forth… and repeat as necessary. 


Ok – BUT the real real REAL reason for this post title is that tomorrow is……My Blogiversary!  SQQQQUUUEEEEEEE!!!!!  Seriously SSSQQUUUEEEEE!!!!   😀

If you have been around here for any length of time you will know that I go all out for my blogiversary and I have HUGE giveaways as thank you to my awesome readers (YOU!).  If you are new to my blogiversary madness you can get a sneak peak of what happened here in previous years:

Blogiversary  Year One

Yup….. soooooo much fun.  AND tomorrow it is happening again so please stop by!  I have awesome giveaways thanks to incredible authors and publishers.  I will give yo a hint I have a copy of the not yet released __________________!!!!  (I know right!)  And if you were drooling over this one I picked up at BEA, know that I have a second one that will also be on the giveaways!  As always there will be books, coffee, and chocolate too.  All you have to do is come to the party 😀 

I am soooo excited but have a busy day ahead of me….. need to have the blog cleaned, the decorators arrive late this afternoon, caterers will be here in the morning…  oh I should check on the giant  ice sculpture too!

Have an awesome day – a book tour yet to come and later…. an awesome audio review.

  1. Happy Bloggoversary Eve?
    Love your answers to the audio week questions. I recently read The Maltese Falcon but I can imagine it would be an interesting LISTEN. 🙂
    Thanks for entering my giveaway for Neverwhere! but you didn’t even comment on any of my The Book Thief reviews for an extra chance (I know, you are busybizzy)
    I’ll tweet and retweet this for you. 🙂

    1. Its a weird listen Care… its dramatic, and over the top with the sound effects…. its only three cd’s so we will see if I can stick it out. 😀

      OOH I did not catch that part about the comment…. I would love to as I live that book! LOVE IT!

  2. Wow, I can almost count your beginnings blogging days as the point at which I really started blogging…and obsessively adding lots of blogs. LOL

    Yours was the first WP site I visited…and I learned a lot from you about how to do things. Thanks again! I still have a lot more to learn, of course.

    I’ll be here tomorrow bright and early!

  3. Sheila for some reason I thought you have been blogging longer then that. It feels like i have been reading your blog forever. (Which is a good thing)

    Well i am wishing you a happy blogiversary and wishing you all the very best. You are a awesome blogger and I love coming to read what you have to say.

  4. Happy Blogoversary eve!! :o)

    I as well listen to more than one book at a time. Usually I’m listening to one at work and one on my iPod in the car (or when I’m cleaning, exercising.. etc). I just love audio books!

    Here’s my audio book week post!

  5. I’ve got three audios going too! When you listen to Bloody Jack, Katherine Kellgren will fast become a favorite narrator! :p) LOL – Just recently I choose to drive alone so I could listen to These Things Hidden, everyone just want to talk while driving, what’s up with that?

  6. Happy almost blogoversary – I will definitely be back tomorrow to see what you have going on!

    I haven’t tried listening to more than one audio book at at time…just listening to one book while reading another is still new to me!

    I’ve noticed that a ton of people of listening to Bossy Pants – I think I am going to have to check it out!

    My mid-week meme can be found here.

  7. Hi Sheila – {Picture little girl jumping up and down waving at the teacher to answer the question!} I Know! I Know! *BG*
    I didn’t realize we are both two years old – our blogs that is. Mine is in July.

    Hey – I love your audio thoughts summary – May I copy it for a post on my blog about audios too? Remember: imitation is the greatest form of flattery. But I don’t want to copy the questions/format without your permission. I will give you credit. 🙂

    1. Hi Martha – the questions are actually Jen’s from Devourer of Books and she has encouraged us all to use them – so feel free 🙂 You should also then link your post to her post (she has a linky area) so people can come read it. You can connect to her above in my post – where I linked her blog. 😀

  8. I’ll be sure to stop by tomorrow after work! When I saw the post on goodreads, I thought you were actually inviting us to stop by Brainerd…I know, it was a long day.
    I still haven’t gotten much of the hang of audio books, but love all your recommendations. I file them away for future use!

  9. Happy Blogoversary!

    I did want to mention that, yes, the sound effects are very much intentional in the edition of The Maltese Falcon that you have! It was scripted like a radio play and performed by Michael Madsen, et al, with full foley in the studio and in post! It’s actually won quite a few accolades and awards; but you have to keep in mind that it is a “totally different head” than a straight audiobook!

Hmmmm... what do you think?
