It seems that the most genealogy I've been doing lately is blogging about it. This is unusual for me because I usually exude family research from my pores. Part of the problem is that I have been listening to some audiobooks and it's hard to transcribe letters or concentrate on census when you are thinking and trying to listen to a book-on-mp3 or wma. You see, Tennessee participates in the Regional e-book & Audiobook Download System (READS). I don't know what I would do without this program, because I really miss the selection of audiobooks that my library in Michigan has. By the phrase MY LIBRARY, I really mean Carl Sandburg Library in Livonia. Toni & Mary are the absolute best at ordering audiobooks. I don't know what has happened with all the budget cuts, but there was always something for my DH and I to listen to.
Sad to say that our library here has an abysmal selection, but when one of the librarians at the Cookeville library told me about the READS program, I perked up. For the most part I am able to get best sellers and whatever else I want. I've also discovered some great new authors this way. Unfortunately for my DH, who hates earphones, he hadn't been able to enjoy this feature as I have. And it's totally free, all you need is a valid library card and an mp3 player.

So now I really have to get back to transcribing those letters and working on the family history. My census file is piling up!
