  1. These all sound great! I do love walking to audiobooks — it keeps me going longer than I might intend, because I can’t stop if I”m in the middle of an especially good chapter. 🙂 I just picked up a copy of Long Way Down for my son, but I think I’ll probably grab it to read myself. I never watched Orange Is the New Black TV series — do you think the book is worth reading without seeing the TV series?

    1. Hey Lisa. I’ve never watched the series. I was really late to the game in listening to the audiobook, but the story was new to me. I’d recommend it – print or audio! I think you will like Long Way Down. I always recommend it!

  2. Thank you for your recommendations, Barbara, and thank you for your support throughout the year. I wish you wonderful things in 2020 and look forward to reading many more great posts.
