how bout dem cowboys!! ,

So satisfying!

Hello, Nick from NC. Kind of late joining in with this app. But I ever so appreciate the Craftlit app that I listen through Apple podcast. Thank you! I’m listening to books I don’t had time to read presently, or never had the opportunity in my younger years. Right now I’m jumping around from one title to another. I’m currently listening to the Gulliver’s travels series! Thank you for what you do. And thank you for keeping it crafty! I’m a knitter, crocheter and seamstress.

High praise

I have an annoying particularity when it comes to the sandwiching of story time between discussion. Happily, the host and discussion in CraftLit add to the experience of the texts, and point out great little bits that I would surely have missed had they not been addressed. Thanks!

Entertaining, educational and witty!

As a brand new listener, I’m stoked that there are YEARS of episodes and books to catch up on! Heather, the host, is smart, funny and an excellent curator. Highly recommend for anyone who loves books and nerding out about words and classic literature. Thank you for creating!
