    Single, 30-something, and working as a writer in New York City, Kristin Kimball was living life as an adventure. But she was beginning to feel a sense of longing for a family and for home. When she interviewed a dynamic young farmer, her world changed. Kristin knew nothing about growing vegetables, let alone raising pigs and cattle and driving horses. But on an impulse, smitten, if not yet in love, she shed her city self and moved to 500 acres near Lake Champlain to start a new farm with him.

    What did you love best about The Dirty Life?

    I love a city girls point of view on farming, organic farming at that. How hard the work actually is.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dirty Life?

    The point of farming on a budget. Buying second hand and living off the land. This is not an easy task.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was moved by the decision of the drastic move from city life to drastic do it yourself organic. This decision is not for the light of heart.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, great story teller!

  • Cleaning House: A Mom's Twelve-Month Experiment to Rid Her Home of Youth Entitlement

    Story
    (40)

    Do your kids think that clean, folded clothes magically appear in their drawers? Do they roll their eyes when you suggest they clean the bathroom? Do you think it's your job to pave their road to success? As parents, so often we hover, race in to save, and do everything we can for our kids - unintentionally reinforcing their belief that the world revolves around them. When Kay Wyma realized that an attitude of entitlement had crept into her home, this mother of five got some attitude of her own.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I liked the idea of this book and the comparison stories but the story is basically the same every month. Maybe it is the wordage used over and over.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Maybe not using the same words, basic story line each month.


    Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    N/A


    Did Cleaning House inspire you to do anything?

    YES, It made me realize my 20 YOA son is still reaping the benefits.....Not now!


    Any additional comments?

    This was a good book just a bit redundant. What this book preaches about entitlement is all factual and makes you realize you need to CUT OUT ENABLING!

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 1

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Would you listen to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo again? Why?

    No, the book is a very slow start.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Make the beginning more interesting


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Salander was in Heterstad, exciting time.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, Beginning was boring and the ending was exciting

    The true story of how celebrity chef Sandra Lee went from being raised on food stamps to starring in her own TV show, Semi-Homemade Cooking, on the Food Network. This powerful, emotional, and astonishing story will inspire anyone who has faced adversity to overcome challenges and persevere. Sandra's candid account of her personal journey offers a rare glimpse into the life of the woman behind the phenomenal success of Semi-Homemade.

    What made the experience of listening to Made From Scratch the most enjoyable?

    It was nice to have Sandra Lee read her own story. Sandra's story was straight to the point without having all the added drama. Very nice!


    Have you listened to any of Sandra Lee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any of Sandra Lee's other stories


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Her honesty, and talking about her grandmother passing on.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you for a story that was straight to the point without the added bonus of extra drama!
