I listen to a lot of radio and audio books while I work. I'm the only one here for most of the day, and it helps to keep me on track, keep me smiling and to keep me informed. Yesterday, I listed to Sarah Vowell's, The Partly Cloudy Patriot. Not only is it hilarious and insightful (as all of her books are), it is the perfect listen for this turbulent political season we are in. If you are like me (meaning the debates, news clips, mis-quotes and mud-slinging make you go on long ranting speeches to anyone who will listen), then this will calm your nerves and bring a smile to your face without making you feel like you're avoiding current events. And, it will make you want to have Sarah Vowell as your friend (if I could be so lucky!).
