I could listen to Mike read all day. And I am!
I am book book kind of girl. I love the feel of a heavy book in my hands and the way it feels tossed in my bag going with me wherever I go.
But when Mike Rowe writes and narrates his own book - I turn into an audio book girl really quickly.
My kids and I have have a long commute to their school every day. Turns out my kids love listening to Mike just as much as I do!
