I am so excited for today’s edition of “Listen to This!”
The Louisville area now has its own local podcast! Woohoo! Twitter pals and bloggers Melissa and Linda are podcasting about life in Louisville at Louisville, Not Kentucky. It’s so fun to listen when I am familiar with the voices (or one voice, haven’t actually met Linda IRL…ha!) and the locales. I love podcasts and have often dreamed of doing one–it takes guts to put yourself out there and they are doing awesome!
Topics discussed on the first episode? Jungle Jim’s, bourbon, drag shows, Breaking Bad, and Romancing the Stone!! This was MADE for me! Ha!
Oh, and how adorable is their logo?!?! Designed by Kyle Ware.

I have been known to judge a book by its cover. I love love love when a book has a beautiful and intriguing cover, shouting “pick me! pick me!” from the shelves.
There are some beautiful covers coming up in 2012, awarded the best in design from the Australian Publishers Association.
Best Designed Cover of the Year: The Art of Pasta - Lucio Galletto and David Gale (Penguin)
If you also appreciate great covers and design, I encourage you to check out The Book Cover Archive. But beware, it is incredibly comprehensive and will easily distract you from other tasks…
