three more audio books

Busy morning — karate, then many many errands (groceries, shipping packages, etc). Henry and I got home around noon, did the morning chores, and then played WoW together for a couple of hours. He helped me with the Heart of Mok quest and we did Mai’Zoth together, then took a break so he could do some math and I could do some librivox work. Cataloged three new audio books today:

Selected Poems of Emily Dickinson, selected and read by Becky

The Advance of Science in the Last Half-Century, by T.H. Huxley, a solo by Jo

The Handy Cyclopedia of Things Worth Knowing, by Joseph Trienens
, a delightfully dated collaborative work read by many fine readers

That makes 21 new works so far in May! Haven’t done any recording myself in the last few days but I’ill probably manage to get some recording done tomorrow or Thursday. More than halfway through with A Room with a View, and only, I think, 12 more of the ghastly Letters :)

    You play WoW!!!!! Totally cool!

    I am a new reader after listening to a few of your reads from librivox and you have been added to my bloglines blogroll!

    Keep up the great work!

    Aww, thanks! Yup, I’ve been playing WoW since Nov. 2004. My favorite alt is a Night Elf Druid. She hit lvl 51 today! Henry (my son) and I play together several times a week. I’ve been told that I’m the world’s coolest mom :)

    Haha! I think you and I started about the same time! or was mine Nov. of 2005? I forget, but man it feels like forever! Yep…worlds Coolest Mom! My son loves that his ‘old man’ plays WoW with him as well. We play on the Khadgar server.

    I typically play horde side, an Orc Shaman, she just hit 66 the other day. Although my very first character was a Human Mage. But I rarely play him, my main Alliance alt I play is a Night Elf Druid as well. I have so many characters, so that I never get bored playing…although at times it still does happen, and, they are all named after characters from “The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West”.

    Congrats on 51, I remember what it was like being in the last stretch to 60! I played every night for two weeks so I could get to 60 and get my epic mount…although, I didn’t end up getting that until I was level 65!

    I have a lot of characters too — my favorite was a warlock, until she got into the mid-40s and everything got really tough. Then I started playing my druid more often and fell in love with her. I’ve got just about one of every class, except shaman, I think. Oh, no pally either. I mostly play alliance but I’ve got a Tauren Hunter, and I suppose I should start a Belf one of these days…

    Ha! If there was any doubt in my mind, it was just washed away when you said Belf! I have everything but a rogue, warrior or hunter…I just don’t get fighting all that much (trying to learn with a pally, but not really working!)

    Yeah, I prefer spell-casting, but bashing on things is fun, too. My druid is the best of both worlds — cast buffs, then go into bear form and charge the enemy, then, if health gets low, slip back into elf-form, stick the baddie to the ground with thorns, heal up, then back to bear or cat for for some more bashing! Fun, fun, fun. A good class for a mostly-solo (or playing-with-Henry) player like me.
