What's up, muggles? This week, my kids were kind enough to take me to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, FL. It was the best! If you haven't read the books in a while (or ever), I highly recommend the recorded audio books, read by Jim Dale. They're now available on Audible.com which is reason enough to subscribe to audible, honestly. I'm currently listening to "Bad Feminist" by Roxane Gay, a collection of essays that are insightful, at times funny and at other times devastatingly sad.
