For those of you that know me, confessing that I am a bibliophile will come as no surprise to you. I am a knowledge nerd and I looove a good story, so I am usually reading 3-4 books at once. I begin to panic if I don't have at least two books waiting in the wings. I've never been one to like audio books or e books. I want to feel the pages between my fingers and oh, that smell.... I mean I think it is one of the best around! Can I get an Amen!
So, the fact that I have come to love podcasts may seem like blasphemy. But hold on, let me qualify this.... Podcasts are a great way to find out about new books to read, learn while i'm driving around town, get me psyched up for the day or chilled out at night. They fuel my interests, peak my curiosity and basically podcasts are another great way to nourish my brain and my soul. Just this week I heard Mary Oliver's sweet voice reading some of her most treasured poems over on Krista Tippett's "On Being" podcast. oh! the joy!
So, I've shared some of my favorites over on my website home page, but today I want to give you a little my insight into my 5 favorite and maybe, just maybe, convince you to give podcasts a little love.
