Happy listening/ reading!

  1. Hey, Hardcover IS a thing and it is one of the things I look forward to a good deal each week.

    Harmonica time: Having recently read and greatly enjoyed To Kill A Mockingbird, I made that my choice. Easily found the Sissy Spacek version on Youtube, the version *without* the sappy, repetitive music droning throughout. Harper Lee’s title is not my favourite novel but I liked it very much and planned on reading it again, though not so soon. However, I have a good deal of art making ahead and decided to combine that with the harmonica challenge. Cheers.
