A New Piece Of News That Makes Me Very Happy

I am absolutely delighted to report that Emily Bauer who did such a wonderful job reading Life As We Knew It is the reader for the Listening Library version of This World We Live In.

I'm so happy about this I'm going to boldface her name.

I've been really eager to hear it, and now I'm even more impatient. I know she's going to do a great great job with Miranda and all the other characters.

Yay for Emily Bauer! Yay for Listening Library! Double Triple Yay for my great good fortune!

yay!! I listened to LAWKI during a long snowstorm while knitting, and it was awesome. Hearing anyone else do Miranda's voice would not be the same.

Becky said...

That is great news! I thought she did a great job with LAWKI!

Kerry S. said...

Wonderful news indeed! It just wouldn't seem right to have anyone else as the voice of Miranda.

Emily said...

That's fantastic! I listened to the audiobook of Life as We Knew It, and I was absolutely enthralled by her reading of it. Can't wait to listen to this one!

Paige Y. said...

That is wonderful news. I really liked the way she did LAWKI. I look forward to listening to it.

Happy New Year's Even to grrlpup and Becky and Kerry S. and Emily and Paige Y.-

I agree completely with all of you.

And if I thought I was impatient before for it to be spring, well the snow falling now and the thought of listening to Emily Bauer read This World make me even more eager for April!

Wonderful news - she's a terrific reader, just right for Miranda!

And a Happy New Year to all!

Happy New Year Elaine Marie Alphin-

Emily Bauer should do a wonderful job with TW. I can't wait to hear it.

And my word verification is "tripper." What a great choice for New Year's!

I agree -- I listened to LAWKI, and thought that she did a great job.

I'm reading the paperback of The Dead and the Gone right now -- following in the footsteps of my 11-year-old daughter. We are both waiting for book 3.

Hi Jennifer, Snapshot and Jennifer, Snapshot's daughter-

I love hearing about parents and children reading LAWKI/d&g (and soon LAWKI/d&g/TW together (or one right after the other).

Oh heck. I just love hearing about anyone reading (or listening) to my books!

Emily said...

If this were Facebook, I would say "Emily Bauer Likes This". I recorded "This World We Live In" this week everyone...then I bought a disaster kit. You are all in for a HUGE treat with this book! YAY SUSAN, and THANK YOU!
