Reading in My Extra Minutes

Hello everyone! 

 Every once in awhile,  I'll sub in a class at the junior high or high school. Sometimes, the teacher leaves an assignment that the students work on without help. On those days, it's important that I have a book to read while the students work.

 On Friday, I read the first 100 pages of In the Wake of the Plague (Black Plague 14th century) by Norman F. Cantor. I am increasing my learning  by underlining and taking notes in the margins. It's been a long time since I have done this, but it's my own old book, and I was recently reminded of the practice by Sarah Coller of Belle's Library

 While working at home, driving, knitting,  and hand quilting, I'm listening to two audiobooks on Everand:

A Winter by the Sea by Julie Klassen, and

How to Stitch an American Dream by Jenny Doan. 


 I love the Everand app (formerly Scribd)! I've read 9 books so far this year.  

 Five were audiobooks on Everand! There's never a per book charge, it's all included in $11.99 a month. This is the best money I spend each month for entertainment and for education. 

 I don't have any trouble finding books to read. There are fiction and non-fiction titles.

 I highly recommend Everand. I keep a book downloaded on my phone so that I can listen in the car or on the go, too. 

 You can get two months free by using my link, and I'll get one month free. Win win!

  1. What a great use of your spare minutes. I like that idea of listening to book while in the car. Brilliant:) I will have to look into this app - thanks for sharing! I hope you are having a wonderful week!

    1. Hi Jennifer,
      I hope you do like the app. It was a real game changer for me!
      Happy February!

  2. I don't care for audiobooks, but I always try to keep a book in my bag for those odd few minutes waiting for an appointment, or to pick up my kids from school

  3. Hello, my friend! Thank you for the book recommendations! I'm going to check them out. Hope you are cozy as can be!


Thank you so much for "talking back" to me!
