Audio book, first chapter (in two parts)

So my 11-month-long sore throat issue has finally been resolved. If you're interested, adding a wedge pillow and not eating after 8pm finally knocked the acid reflux down enough to allow my throat to heal. So much information you didn't need! What you did need, was the first full chapter of the audio book, in two parts:Chapter 1, part 1Chapter 1, part 2I'd pushed out part 1 a few months ago, bu... Read more of this blog post »
