The Longest Shortest Time

LST Joins Stitcher

Fridays have become our We Can’t Stop Reading days but there’s not much to report this week. It’s been all Madeline all the time.


In keeping with Sasha’s obsession with objects disappearing in books, her main interest with Madeline is with Madeline’s empty bed. “Where is the other one?” she asks, then answers her own question with a spirited, “She’s in the hospital!” I can’t help wondering if she remembers her time in the hospital.

Since I have no other books to share with you this week, I thought I’d make a little announcement about the podcast.


LST recently joined Stitcher SmartRadio, a very cool app that allows you to listen to radio shows and podcasts directly on your mobile phone without syncing or using up memory. They recommend shows they think you’ll like and they’re also available on some car dashboard systems (ooh la la!). Pretty much all of my favorite shows are on Stitcher and I’m honored to have been invited to join the platform. If you’re interested in the app—and a chance to win $100—here’s what you need to do:

  1. go to your app store and download Stitcher (for free!)
  2. on the registration screen, where it says “Tell us how you heard about Sitcher!” enter promo code: LONGESTSHORTEST

And that’s it!

Happy listening. And if you wind up using the app, let me know how you like it.

Also. Just because we only have one book this week doesn’t mean I don’t want to hear about your lengthy list. Post your new faves in the comments.
