Just listened to Season 3 Ep 7: Loved it as all of them but wanted to let you know that I rewound (is that right for digital ?- sounds weird) to Heidi talk about gardening a couple of times because I really wanted to remember it. Wrote this on a post it. “It’s interesting what happens when you just start working on what you want to work on instead of I SHOULD xyz & lmnop”
You guys are the best.
I just discovered Alibris, it’s powered by small bookstores, so I thought I would see it Live Alone and Like It could be found there. It can, and there is a book about the book!!! OMG!!!
Thanks for sharing the link! The Extra Woman was how I first learned about Marjorie Hillis and her books! ?
Haha, that might have been a part of the podcast that was playing while I was picking up groceries ? Early 20th century books are so interesting, I loved the excerpts you read for us!!!
