by Ursula K. le Guin
I've read this before, but picked it up again because, to be completely honest, I discovered some new (to me) technology and wanted to download an audio book directly onto my iPhone. So now I'm listening to it.
It's a very good book, and I recommend it. I don't know how to describe it, but let's just say that it's got plenty of adventure! :)
I was listening to it as I was going to sleep last night...but then I later woke up at a rather spooky part. I now think that it isn't exactly a good bedtime story.
I can't remember which of her books I picked up, but I got it at a book sale at a library for 50 cents. With a price like that, I couldn't pass it up. (I also bought a le Guin book for the same price. Awesome.)
I wound up reading some of the poems to a friend of mine just hours after I got it. She was going to sleep as I read. I suppose you could argue that that illustrates how boring poetry is, but I prefer to think that it indicates how soothing the poems are, that someone who needs sleep can listen to them and not be jarred out of dream land. :)

I just checked this out from Library2Go to listen to at night, since I won't be listening to Rocannon's World at bedtime. I've listened to it...I don't know how many times. :) It's a good book. Again, I recommend this book.
