Deluge me with your wisdom, and hit me up if you have a spare one lying about.

Question for a friend: Best way to listen to audio books that isn't Amazon/Audible? It's also a specific book if that matters.

I don't listen to books often because I get easily distracted. This is to help a friend.

Having an energy audit done this morning. I am looking forward to the results but concerned that we won’t be able to find contractors to do whatever updates we decide need priority.
