I had THE BEST compliment from a patron recently. He said
that telling him about Hoopla changed his LIFE!
That’s right folks! I thought to
myself, well we must spread the good news!
Recently I listened to an amazing audio book by Amanda Palmer about “The
Art of Asking“on Hoopla. I do not know
if you’re anything like me but the dinner making, laundry and dog bathing waits
for no man. I am usually not still enough for reading. I am always on the move.
Always cooking, driving, and all the things!
So I LOVE Hoopla. In her audiobook, not only do you get to hear her
reading and listen to some of her music, you also get to learn about her
husband, Neil Gaiman. Through this audiobook, I became a fan of both. Such a talented couple with such great
creativity. Amanda has always asked her fans and audience for what she needs,
and they are thrilled to rise to the occasion. I like the message about giving
the blessing to others of receiving the gifts they want to give you. I do want to warn you Amanda is a fan of the f-bomb . I was
listening to this book when I was desperately trying to pick up my dog’s cremains.
I had a ceremony and a locket to give to my husband and it was going to be
awhile before I could arrange for all the stars to align to do the ceremony.
The flooding in town made me run late. The vet’s office would already be
closed. My husband really wanted these
cremains. I was listening to the book
and I just thought, “You know what? I'm going to go, and if I can catch someone,
I'm going to ask!” So I pulled up and
asked my newly met veterinarian if there was any way and he ran right in and
got them for me. I had tears in my eyes when he gave it to me and I had to hug
him. I was so grateful. He gave me the gift. All I had to do was ask.
