I love reading and listening to stories and I have discovered some fine podcasts to enhance the experience.

Elizabeth Rose is a storyteller from America and tells engrossing stories via 'Story'cast. She has a great story-telling voice and her tales are enchanting and are a great way to escape and relax and experience another life.

Another podcast that I like is The Twain Reader, where the podcaster regularly reads sections of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

I found both of these podcasts via the iTunes Podcast Directory.

Addicted to books

It seems as though my life revolves around books. I have always loved reading, my first job was in a bookshop and then while at university I worked part-time in the library and eventually qualified as a librarian. I even met my husband over a pile of books, and fortunately, although we have different tastes in books, (he likes fact, I like fiction and complete escapism), we both share a love of reading.

But this isn't supposed to be a blog about librarians or me. I just wanted to discuss my favourite books and hopefully learn about new authors. So, what I will try to do on a regular basis is write a bit about my favourite authors and books, so watch this space.....
