Not being familiar with Sara & Tegan‘s music, I wasn‘t sure I would get much out of this joint memoir. Turns out I liked it quite a lot, especially the fact that the #audiobook was read in alternating chapters by whichever of the twins wrote that part, plus the between-chapter clips of their songs and interviews from the late 1990s. Their huge fights with each other was a troubling aspect, but reminiscent of my nieces‘ behaviour. #Canadian #LGBTQ

Soubhiville I‘m on the waiting list! I used to listen to them. I‘m glad you liked it! 11h
Lindy @Soubhiville The sound clips gave me a good idea of their engaging onstage rapport. The content of the songs reminds me of Ani DiFranco. If I was 10 or 15 years younger than I am, I probably would have been listening to them. 6h
Lindy @Soubhiville Oh, and they grew up just a little south of me; they‘re from Calgary. 6h

Potawatomi author Kimmerer‘s enthusiasm for moss is infectious & I learned fascinating things about a subject I hadn‘t much thought about previously. The series of essays in this #audiobook combine memoir with scientific knowledge for general readers. She writes about humankind‘s relationship to the natural world & the important gifts that even such humble things as moss have to contribute to the ecological system. #Indigenous

Lindy I have heard that Robin Wall Kimmerer was an inspiration for Elizabeth Gilbert‘s main character in 17h

The subject was vial and so is the person!
The author was very honest and very blunt about Kelly's activities in many states with young girl's some as young as 13!
Jim DeRogatis was facing being sued by Kelly and his team but he kept the girls Identity quite. Good man.

LibrarianRyan I'm often amazed how many times he as been investigated or brought up on charges just to have them dropped. They should have got him years ago. Hopefully he gets found guilty. 18h
kaysworld1 @LibrarianRyan Totally agree with you. It's about time they did the right thing for once and take him down. 17h

I am thinking that Audiobooks are becoming my favorite format. I mean I still love a good physical book. Nothing beats curling up with a good book, but man I love Audiobooks and what they offer.

#Audiobook appreciation

MidnightBookGirl ME TOO! I listen to them when I'm just doing stuff around the house and getting ready in the mornings, and before I go to sleep, and when I drive, and do crafts and housework, when I go for walks... pretty much always a big part of my day! 1d
rsteve388 Yeah they are so versatile and can be used to make anything more enjoyable. 1d
Crimson613 That cover 👌👌 1d
ljuliel I‘ll jump on the Audiobook bandwagon myself. I listened to my first one 5 years ago, and they‘ve slowly become my favorite. They add so much more color and life to books if they‘re done well by good narrators. 1d
rsteve388 Yeah I agree! @ljuliel 22h

I feel like everyone sings the praises of this memoir, but if you have not yet read it, I say you should get to it posthaste. 😉 And #audiobook is definitely the way to go IMHO.

Crazeedi Looks like I might need this for next year!😉 1d
Schnoebs @Crazeedi I read it because I wanted to organize my reading better for next year. It wasn‘t exactly what I wanted out of it but there were definitely tips and tricks that I was able to take with me and had me think about the goals that I wanted 1d
Crazeedi @Schnoebs that's what I'm wanting to do next year too. 1d

If you've ever watched any show she's in... The Office or The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.... She's just as weird as her characters. 100% a little odd, but so very loveable! Enjoyed learning more about her. ❤️ #oddball #funny #audiobook

Started & finished this #audiobook this morning. Entertaining, good pacing, not really expected twist and yet did not so great of one as to be completely unbelievable.
For any #classicists you may get a kick out of the Classics Prof as the main sleuth.
