Thank you
The guided breathing. The feeling of nostalgia from having what feels like an old childhood friend reading to me again. It’s everything. You get me through my day. I would love to hear Lamb to the Slaughter by Roald Dahl!

This Makes Me Happy
I love listening to the stories. This podcast has exposed me to stories and authors I would never have read. I have read a couple of the books from authors I heard about through this podcast and have enjoyed them. Thanks for expanding my book world.
