Checking in.

I don't have much to say, I've just been fumbling around here trying to get used to these lenses and battling headaches. It's been a dull and annoying week so far--I really hate not being able to see!

I just wanted to mention this very neat website called Librivox, where you can listen to public domain books being read. I had found it a couple of years ago, but only started using it recently, when I began working my way through Wilkie Collins' The Moonstone for a discussion on the Classic Literature forum at PaperbackSwap. It's a very long book and it's taking me a while to get through it, so sometimes when I'm cooking dinner or mopping the floor or folding laundry, I listen to a chapter or two on Librivox. It's absolutely free (since they're readng public domain books) and the readers are quite good. So if there's a classic you're wanting to hear, they probably have it.

The snow is melting, the sun is out, and it feels like we're back on track for spring. Over and out!
