Another Argument for Real Books Vs. Kindle

     My brother is fairly industrious, at least he tries to be. He has had several decent ideas in the past for assorted websites to create, though he seems to lack the motivation to market said sites after creating them. Yesterday he pitched a new idea to me by saying, "You know that electronics site that I buy from mainly because they accept bitcoins? There are several sites like it that each specialize in different items." I just look at him waiting for him to proceed. "There aren't any that sell books." Still no response as I wait for him to get to his point. "We should make one."

     Finally, I reply with, "Where would we get the money to buy stock? Theoretically, if we had reliable transportation, we could list the books and just go buy what we needed to fill an order, but we don't. We would need to have stock on hand."

Rose Madder - Listen While You Work Audiobook Review

What I listened to ...

book cover art for Rose Madder by Stephen King Rose Madder
by Stephen King
Genres: Thriller, Suspense, Paranormal
Narrators: Stephen King & Blair Brown

     The majority of audiobooks that I have ready access to are Stephen King novels, thanks to one of my best friends who is a huge fan of both audiobooks and King. It is her extensive library of audio books that I usually borrow from. Within the last few years I had attempted to read straight through SK books in chronological order - except skipping the books from his Tower series, wanting to read those back to back. Rose Madder is where I had gotten stuck as it was one of several unfortunate books that was damaged by flooding while in storage. I'm not sure if I am going to proceed with my quest from here, I would rather provide more variety to my reviews, but it is a possibility.
