Anne McCaffrey has gone between.

Dragonsong and Dragonsinger were my favorites. They made a huge impression on me when I first read them as a 10-year-old (I still re-read them every few years). Menolly was a wonderfully real girl — brave enough to run away and live Holdless for the sake of her music, but as shy and insecure as I was.

Thanks, Anne.

    Hi Kara,
    I’ve been listening to you on LibriVox for a while now, and am just visiting your blog for the first time. How surprised I am to find that you are also a knitter and homeschooler! So I have to say hi, as a fellow knitting, homeschooling, LibriVox reader. How long have you been homeschooling? My girl is 5, so we’ve just started.

    Hi Gryphon,

    So cool — I recognize your url from Ravelry ads :)

    I was homeschooled in the 70s (when it wasn’t normal, heheh) and I have homeschooled my 16 year old for his whole life.

    Happy listening! :)

    I finally found your site! I enjoyed so much your reading of “Whose Body” that I was determined to find your site and hope that you have recorded other mysteries and perhaps have a blog. I am thrilled!

    I loved the Dragonrider of Pern series when I was 14. I so wanted my best friend Beth to read them that I wrote a poem extolling the books and exhorting her to read them.

    But alas. She never did.
