I love recording books because I love literature, and this gives me a way to read more and help other people at the same time. I started to read and record books for the Minnesota Radio Talking Book network earlier this year and am in the middle of recording my second book, "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" by Rebecca Skloot. This has been the best volunteering I've ever done because it allows me to do something I love and then let it go once I'm finished. And it's also giving me opportunities to become a better reader at the same time!
