The Girl in the Blue Feathered Hat, by JP Perrin

As told by an unseen chronicler, The Girl in the Blue Feathered Hat is a wistful narrative about time, reflection, and memory. It speaks to the indistinct transitory nature of the passage of time, the involuntary character of memory, and the clarity and confusion of reflection from a great distance of both, to extract the bittersweet from the life we have lived.

The next best thing to a good book is sharing and discussing it with others. Social media has created a wonderful platform for discussing books, authors, and narrators with people all over the world. Literate Housewife has been an active book blog since January 2007 as a means to carve out a piece of my life just for myself. It was the best New Year’s Resolution I’ve ever made. It might also be the only one I’ve kept up. Ha! My blog isn’t the only place I discuss books. I have a Facebook page and I maintain an active presence on Twitter as well (@lithousewife). My Twitter feed is where you’ll most often find my immediate reactions to books, authors, and narrators. It’s also my number one source for recommendations. There are so many wonderful books I’ve discovered by following some really incredible readers, publishers, and authors.

In addition to this blog, I am the co-founder of the Armchair Audies, an audiobook challenge for those who like to take an active roll in preparing for the APA’s Audie Awards. 2013 will be our second year and we now have a Facebook page as well. I am also a founding member of the Bloggers RecommendAdvisory Board.
