  1. Someone just gifted me “The Omnivore’s Dilemma” – I’ll have to read it! Hopefully you enjoy it as well. 🙂

  2. I love Kilmeny of the Orchard! Enjoy.

  3. My cousin is friend’s with Amy Thielen and has helped her with a few of her book events. I still haven’t read her book though and never thought of looking for it on audio. Duh! Unfortunately, my library overdrive doesn’t have it. So, I may use an Audible Credit for it…after you tell me how it was!

    • I didn’t finish it (life got in the way) but I’ve reborrowed it and am about halfway through. So far I’m really enjoying it and would recommend it! Thielen does the narration as well, and she’s good at it.
