What I Checked Out in December

Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg by Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik Audiobook narrated by Andi Arndt I checked out the audiobook and the print book.

Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier I checked out the … Continue reading What I Checked Out in August

Claire Danes is a wonderful narrator and the book is beautifully written. The Woman in the Window audiobook by A.J. Finn is narrated by Ann Marie Lee. The narration is … Continue reading What I Checked Out in July
