Ok, despite being a computer programmer I am terrible at picking up the new technologies until they have been out for a long time!

I finally broke down and started listening to a Podcast..... essentially the author in this case is reading the book to me! We have Spotify - which I listen to music when I walk. I did a quick search and found that The Friendship Album 1933 - is on Spotify! It is also on other mediums like iTunes, etc.

This book was mentioned in the Hand Pieced Quilt Along and the blocks were actually named after the ladies in the book. I admit I have been stitching while listening to the book in the car line at school as well as when I walk or even do dishes!  It is a wonderful 'read' about a group of diverse ladies who all joined a quilt group. Quilting is involved but it is a wonderful retelling of their lives and how they interact with each other and in the community. If you are looking for something to read or listen to, I highly recommend it.

The author is Frances ORoarke Dowell. The book - The Friendship Album 1933.

Thanks (again) for the recommendation! When I decide to give podcasts a try, I will look for this.
