Reviewing an audiobook

Well I sure hope your summer is going well. Have you been to the pool? How about the beach? A trip to the coolness of the mountains? Sigh. I long for a retreat somewhere myself.

And I do, on occasion, as a writing exercise. (I don’t think it’s illegal, especially when I do not interact with them, know them, or any of that). I certainly do not use any of their conversation or information in a derogatory manner. (be forewarned, authors do eavesdrop!) Today, I’m visiting my favorite eating/coffee drinking/thinking place. It’s pretty crowded as usual thanks to a hungry after-church crowd. To me, a forty-hour-a-week worker bee,
