A Treasure Trove!
I think spring rolls look like something a spider wraps up and I'm sure how I make them is not so conventional, but I LOVE them.
Anyway, what I really want to talk about is the overdrive system at the Pierce County Library. It is a treasure trove! I have been downloading books for my Kindle Fire (awesome, free books!) and just last night discovered you can listen to books on your PC from that thing too!
A huge part of my childhood was the fact that my dad was legally blind and so we got books for the blind mailed to us and we were always listening to books when we were doing chores or anything really. Oh, such good memories, to think about those times we all enjoyed a book together. So now, I can listen to a book while I paint. I'm fairly sure most big cities have the Overdrive thing or something like it where you can get e-books. I was able to sign up for a card online at Pierce County Library, easy as pie, didn't even have to go in.
