The Selection by Kiera Cass, Book Review Since the summer started, I have read several books, a few of which have strong, young female characters, and I am ecstatic. There are times when we go on a journey and end up somewhere that’s wonderful.

Reading Faster: Reading a Print Book While Listening to the Audio at Twice the Speed Last Saturday, I set aside three hours to read The Hard Thing about Hard Things, while listening to the audio version, but it was not meant to be. I couldn’t get the mp3 audio version of the book to play. See my blog post Struggling with Technology. After wasting three hours I didn’t want to read the book again that day, so I read Kiera Cass’ Selection trilogy, which I enjoyed. I will write and post my review later in the week. Monday morning, I decided to read The Hard Thing About Hard Things: Building … [Read more...]
