Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

The Lump of Coal ★★★★★

The Lump of Coal (Audio) - Lemony Snicket, Neil Patrick Harris, Brett Helquist

An adorable anthropomorphic lump of coal goes on a journey to find his destiny. Loved it.


Audiobook, borrowed from my public library via Overdrive, with an excellent reading by Neil Patrick Harris, as if he could do anything but provide an outstanding performance of a Lemony Snicket story.
