    I know I've been saying this before, but the His Dark Materials audiobooks that they have on audible are amazing. I listen when I'm cleaning or driving. Helps me focus ?


    Yeah, I wouldn't be able to focus on them while doing anything but sitting there with my eyes closed.  Or reading the physical books.  My attention would wander and I'd miss large chunks of the story, which would bother me with a new to me book.

  2. The citadel wouldn't be the palace, though...


    Palace with a library in an impressive city.... hmmmm......


    Was the library in Cairhien officially part of the palace?


    Trying to think of other SF/F series where there are libraries mentioned.  I am less helpful than I want to be.

  3. OK, may not be able to check back in until after work (I'll try, but if you don't hear from me for about 9 hours don't panic)...  but here's the next one.

    Do you have audible, Tress?


    Not yet.  I fully intend to subscribe eventually - mostly because my dream job is narrating audiobooks (and has been for many years, was really cool when Merphy Napier started doing it and decided to post videos about her lessons learned).   


    But i know myself and I would not be able to listen to new books on audio - my attention wanders if i'm looking at anything unrelated to what i'm hearing, and next thing I know I'll have tuned out the audio and started thinking about something entirely different.


    I plan to get the WoT audiobooks for sure, for rereads and because I've heard that Michael Kramer and Kate Reading are masters of the narrating craft.  But it's not a high priority on my goals list just yet.

    So tonight we're having smashburgers. I was gonna use the English muffins but I figured, eh, might as well make hamburger buns. So those are rising. Onions are sautéed, special sauce is made, lettuce washed, tomatoes sliced, bacon in the oven.

    @Songstress Oatmeal blueberry sounds delicious. Dried or fresh berries?



    Dried blueberries - I basically found the best looking oatmeal raisin cookie recipe i could find, and replaced the raisins with dried blueberries.  The guy who brought them to JordanCon posted his recipe after i showed a photo of mine, but it was generally similar.  


    I never considered it before he brought them to JCon, but they are the best. thing. ever.

    My plans for the weekend involve sourdough English muffins, my first try. The sponge is sitting in the kitchen and tomorrow morning... ish... they get muffined.


    I hope to feel like baking cookies this weekend. Jonesing for a batch of oatmeal blueberry (my new favorite since JordanCon).
