"Book On It"

"Where is my bookmark? Which audiobook are my headphones plugged into?"

My bookmark is in the novel, “Lovecraft Country” by Matt Ruff. In anticipation for the soon to be adapted HBO series starring Jurnee Smolett-Bell, Jonathan Majors, Aunjanue Ellis, Michael K. Williams and Elizabeth Debicki, I am reading the novel about terror during the Jim Crow era. The hardcover copy is a bit worn and gives a unique presentation for a story that is a spell of horror, fantasy, noir and historical fiction.

I am listening to “Welcome to Night Vale” by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor. It is another book different from my normal reading groove. The novel is based off of the podcast about mysterious happenings in an American Southwest desert. I listened to Joseph Fink on the “B&N Podcast”, remembering the book was on my reading list and decided to give it a go.

There is rarely a distinct connection between the book and audiobook for each week. It is an exciting experience as a reader for the next week to delve into the worlds the characters inhabit.
