Collins—Episode One hundred ninety-three: Memorials and Mortality

Not a lot in the way of shownotes. We have a nifty Monthly Incentive though, and I’ll be doing the drawing on the 14th of Feb because Fabulous Listener Jill sent in GORGEOUS Valentines Day yarn—five skeins from Neighborhood Fiber Co, 100% Superwash Merino, 98 yards each, 2oz, 4.5-5 sts/inch on US 6–8 in colorway Grant Circle. Donate up through February 14th and it could be yours! I’ll draw an incentive winner from a hat.


(It’s a little more pink than the pic…)

Aside from that, we begin at the beginning of the groundbreaking novel The Woman In White. Our episodes will be a little long while we do this book due to the way the Librivox recordings have been organized. For the first few, we are graced by the voice of Tim Bulkeley of reading the part of Walter Hartwright.

If you would like a copy of the book so you can follow along, you’re welcome to use the link below. By starting here when you go shopping at Amazon a portion of their profits from your purchase goes to helping keep CraftLit on the air.

    Hi Heather,

    Just a few thoughts: 1) I LOVED LOVED LOVED Connecticut Yankee. I was not a Twain-o-phile before that, so it was a delightful discovery for me. My brother surprised me with Twain’s autobiography for Christmas and I am enjoying that now.

    2) I wasn’t in a Dickensian mood, so I just tuned back in this week. I had never heard of The Woman in White before listening last night. Now, I am anxiously awaiting each installment.

    3) Moving back East? Wow! CraftLit trip through Massachusetts, ending at Rhinebeck? Double Wow! Count me in! Heck, I can probably house some pilgrims in my Danbury, CT home…

    Thank you for making CraftLit!

    Three things:

    1. I’ve never read any Wilkie Collins before and I’m loving The Woman in White – so much so I was raving to a bewildered friend about it for much of yesterday evening.

    2. It must be good because it’s made me comment on a blog, which is a rare thing for me to do!

    3. You are so right in what you said on the podcast about taking a break from things being a bad idea! I have been working towards a monster work deadline for a couple of weeks, have a couple more weeks to go, and awarded myself last night and this morning off…And here I am talking to you because I am now completely unable to focus on the work.

    Thanks so much for the podcast.
