    OK I just got lost in the audio list! It makes me long for about 100 more hours a week to listen. I HAVE to get my hands on The Goldfinch. Just FYI, not everyone sees my thoughts on Goodreads so I feel the need to emphasize how absolutely AMAZING Sea of Tranquility is. I’ve got to start working on my lists!

    Oh, the Salon list is pretty different from what I remember the Audible one being. I bookmarked it for future recommendations!
