Hi guys! I’ve missed you. After navigating a few big work changes, it’s nice to say “hello” again.
Last month I said goodbye to the fabulous Lawrence Public Library and climbed aboard the web team at Johnson County Library right next door in Overland Park.
What I do now is pretty different from wearing banana suits at block parties, organizing meat tastings, and hanging out with world-famous authors like Daniel Woodrell, but I have to say I’m liking hunkering down in my cubicle to create hilarious (right?) social media and web content. Writing has always always been up there among my favorite tasks at any job, and now I’m paid to do it 90% of the time. The other 10% is spent brushing up on fun techie and UX skills.
The other major change? As a brand-new commuter, I have become totally fanatical about audiobooks. Punk goddess Patti Smith reading her very own memoir? Brilliant journalist Jon Ronson reciting Insane Clown Posse lyrics in a dry british accent? Yes, please! If you’re a fan of audiobooks, too, let me know what I should listen to next.
Audible.com is one of my favorite websites. I really liked World War Z by Max Brooks on audio. I listen to a lot of audiobooks on those long drives back home.
Nice, I will check out World War Z. My library system has an awesome audio book collection, which is really nice when I’m willing to wait in line a little bit.
I’ve also heard really good things about Erin Morgenstern’s The Night Circus on audio (narrated by Jim Dale).
The audio book version of World War Z is fabulous and award winning! Also, this is one of my favorite audio book review blogs: http://booksforears.com/
As a former commuter, I totally get being fanatical about audio books. Glad to hear you are liking your new job!
