Where did you get your love of reading?

I’ve been thinking a lot about my mom lately. She was the one who read to me, who handed me my first Victoria Holt novel. From there, I spent hours in the library.

Before that, my godfather used to send my sisters and me records that contained everything from classical music to folks tales to showtunes. One of my favorites was Danny Kaye's Tales From Faraway Lands. "Oo-wunga-lame-a" (what's the name of the tree!). Another of my favorites was Victor Borge reciting Hans Christian Andersen while he played background music on the piano. I used to listen to those records for hours, especially when I was home sick and couldn't do anything else. I spent so much time listening, in fact, that my sisters and I could ALL tell you the name of the tree.

As I've gotten older, I have a hard time concentrating on listening, or maybe audiobooks are longer than short little fairy/folk tales. With that being said, I know there are lots of people who like to listen to books, and for that reason, I have broken into the audiobook market. I'm very excited to announce that COOKIE THERAPY is now available on audio! While I was hesitant at first, the fabulous Vicki Pierce did an excellent job narrating it, and I've fallen in love with the story all over again!

If you love audiobooks, and if you love a great story, I hope you'll give it a listen!

    I've been enjoying short audiobooks lately (novellas), as I can finish them quicker. I live near the library and go there a lot to use the Internet computers. I like borrowing audiobooks and other items through Hoopla and Overdrive.
