  1. I loved A Man Called Ove (book and movie) but haven’t listened to the audio version. I did listen to the audio of Born a Crime and thought it was fantastic. Hope you are enjoying it even if it is slow going ๐Ÿ™‚

      I can’t wait to see the movie after I finish the book…And I am really enjoying Trevor Noah’s voice.

    • Melissa

      You and me both…I really only have time on lunch breaks at work but even then I sometimes have to run errands!

  2. Ooh Hitchhiker’s Guide is free on audio? I still have to finish that book… and somehow I missed your Cover Characteristics post, just went over to check it out. Those posts are always fun… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a nice week!

      I did read…just with alternating between all three didn’t finish any of them! Have a great week too!

    • Melissa

      Yeah…I guess with three books going an two of them being audios…I made progress on them all just didn’t finish any of them!

    • Melissa

      Well, I read almost every day but with three books going at once just didn’t complete any! And yes…TV definitely got in the way a few days!

  3. A Man Called over became one of my favorite reads of 2017. I hope you enjoyed it if you got to read it yet. I also love the Booktown mystery series which my daughter introduced me to. So many books, so little time. Have a great weekend! #GetSocial17

    • I have his second book on my bookshelf courtesy of my daughter. I am looking forward to it, but currently am in the middle of “Gorge, My Journey Up Kilimanjaro at 300 Pounds” by Kara Richardson Whitely. Being a big girl myself I wanted to see how she did it. “Become a Better You, 7 Keys to Improving Your Life Everyday” by Joel Osteen. And a new book as part of a book tour, “Betrayal at Iga, A Hiro Hattori Novel” by Susan Spann. As always, so many books and so little time.

      • Melissa

        So true…I’ll never conquer my TBR in one lifetime!!! Hope you enjoy all three! Become a Better You, 7 Keys to Improving Your Life Everyday sounds like one I should read!
