Switching Audio Books
I left the keys at home, plugged in the headphones, and walked up to the bank, to the library, and around town today. I finally finished my audio book, The Worst Hard Time, about the Dust Bowl. Most of FDR’s millions of trees died, and many people left the Great Plains. Some stayed though and continue to farm in an area with very little average rainfall. These farms instead get water from deep underground, from the Ogallala Aquifer, depleting this natural resource at an alarming rate. Thankfully, some of the area was slowly converted back to grassland.
Today, I started a new audio book, Life After Life, by Kate Atkinson. Life After Life is showing up on a number of “Best Books” lists this year, and I thought I’d give it a try.
Good walking, good listening!
