Over the last few weeks life for a lot of us has gone from normal to practicing social distancing and then to living in quarantine.
When I was laid off from my job I knew I’d need to find things other than Netflix and Disney+ to keep me going.
But I also wanted to do something productive. So about 2 weeks ago, before all the stores closed, I picked up a bunch of yarn so I could make hats to donate to local shelters in my area later this year.
And a few days ago when the CDC recommended that everyone wear a mask out in public I found a pattern for No Sew Facemasks , washed a bunch of my old tshirts and got to work.
These ‘quarantine crafts’ have kept me busy and they’ve also given me a chance to dive back into audiobooks. So there are 5 audiobook recommendations featuring pandemics to listen to while in quarantine.
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
