Bookish Musings: Opening Lines (2)

I did a post with opening lines before, and I'm doing it again because I just think it's really interesting to look at the opening lines of books! I don't know about you all, but I tend to just kind of gloss over the first line, in a way, and immediately forget it by the time I'm a few sentences deep. I don't really stop to pay attention to just the opening line specifically when I'm starting...

Love to Listen: Audio Drama Reviews – Peter Pan, Interview with the Robot, Beezer

I had an Audible subscription for a few months last year, and each month they offered a selection of Audible Originals, so I had the chance to listen to a few.

Bookish Musings: How to Listen to eBooks with TTS (and Why It’s Great!)

About a year and a half ago, I developed this nerve problem in my head, and ever since then, I haven't been able to read much with my eyes without getting headaches. But the thing is, I still love books! Sure, I can read small amounts and take painkillers, but I could never read 100+ books a year like I normally do. Audiobooks are a great option, and thankfully I have access to many through my...
