Audiobook Challenge 2021 - September Audiobook


 I'm going to be cheating on my 

SEPTEMBER Listening Books  

AUDIOBOOK CHALLENGE:  

 Listen to an Audiobook that is over 24 Hours Long.

Listening Books  Audiobook Listening Challenge 2021:

https://www.listening-books.org.uk/library/audiobook-listening-challenge-2021

Why am I cheating?  Because the book I plan to listen to is 23 hours and 13 minutes long. 

Maybe Listening Books will forgive me since I will also be reading books for four (4) separate Zoom Book Clubs this month.  

Below a description of the book from the publisher:

"Now, award-winning historian Ada Ferrer delivers an ambitious and moving chronicle written for a moment that demands a new reckoning with both the island’s past and its relationship with the United States. Spanning more than five centuries, Cuba: An American History provides us with a front-row seat as we witness the evolution of the modern nation, with its dramatic record of conquest and colonization, of slavery and freedom, of independence and revolutions made and unmade.

Along the way, Ferrer explores the sometimes surprising, often troubled intimacy between the two countries, documenting not only the influence of the United States on Cuba but also the many ways the island has been a recurring presence in US affairs. "

As a Cuban-American I've been interested in this book and what Dr. Ada Ferrer, also a Cuban-American, has to say about the joint history of Cuba and the United States.

Happy 50th Birthday Dear Richard Armitage - August 22, 2021


 


Dear Richard,

Hope you have the happiest of Birthdays for your 50th.




Not only do you look younger than most 50 year old men I know, you seem to have the energy, and as you say, the curiosity, of someone decades younger.  You are also young at heart, and that is what counts.

Thank you for thinking about us, your fans (well wishers), on your birthday. This year is very special for us too, between your donation to the fan auction of Guy's Iconic Leather Jacket,  and using Orcrist to cut the cupcake on your early birthday video (look forward to seeing it again today). You know us well, and that's nice. 😚

I enjoyed my 50's and I think for you the best is yet to come.
