All sorts of possibilities here. For a while, I was listening to various books while driving, all available on the app from our local library. Basically, they treat the online version just like a regular book. You get it for x amount of time, and then it is no longer available until you request it again (based on availability).

As I am about to dump Sirius from my truck, probably be going back to this again.
I’m not sure if our local library has that option or not. I’ll have to check. I have a lot problems with there app. It crashes a lot. That’s Carroll County. You just gave me the idea of looking at the apps for surrounding County libraries. A few years ago I discovered how much one can do through the library and I ended up going out and getting library cards for the counties around me as well, all free as long as you’re a Md resident. (The wife thought I was nuts). One County offers free access to Gale Courses which I like to do over the winter. They have all kinds of different classes one can take.

Yes you’re absolutely right. People are advocating for free college. Go to the library. Knowledge awaits. Yeah I know it ain’t the same but still.

Not if you're like me. I make it a point to deliberately use poor English around certain people. Especially my sister. Not only is she a borderline commie, she's also a grammar nazi.

My favorite is to say "me and ______" instead of "_______ and I" because it's one of her favorite grammar triggers. :D

Mine is the same request I’ve had almost ten years now.

I should have my own forum where only I can post and edit and the rest of you just get to read in amazement and admiration of what I post.

Not sure what the hold up is.

It just occurred to me that I haven't heard anyone say "totally rad" since like 1989. :headscratch2:

I hope that idiotic term never comes back into use. :eek-64:

My mom hates "these ones" and "those ones." So I sometimes make a point to toss it in here and there. My guy teases me because I grew up a hick and still let Hickenese slip into my language from time to time.

Back on topic, though, I would like to see a general topic of "Entertainment" rather than just "TV and Movies." There have been a lot of celebrities who we all grew up watching and listening to who have passed the last couple of years. We have somewhere to talk about actors, but musicians get plunked into the general fray.

What's wrong with "these ones" and "those ones"?
