  1. Oh maaan, more to watch! Though actually, that might be handy later. I think I'm coming down with something so if I could listen to something interesting while I potter a bit, that'd while away some time nicely. Thanks Ellie. :)

  2. Well thank you very much for this list and also the previous list. I have not gotten into TED talks but I've heard and read much about them. The first time I ever heard of them was actually in a novel about a woman married to a Microsoft exec - ("Where'd You Go Bernadette" by Maria Semple.) After I read about them in that novel, suddenly they were popping up everywhere. But how could I fit in yet another thing to watch? But your handy guides will help me. I don't have to poke around randomly trying to find where to start. I'll probably start with the Susan Cain one since I loved her book "Quiet".

  3. You're very welcome! It does help knowing where to start as there are so many. I quite often search for the tags I'm interested in (for example, books or literature) and I can then spend hours getting lost in what's on offer. The Susan Cain talk was one of the first I watched and still one of my favourites so I hope you enjoy - let me know!

    Also, Bernadette is such a wonderful book.

  4. I know, it never ends does it?! On the one hand I really hope you're not coming down with something because that's rubbish, but on the other hand I do hope you get to watch/listen to these because they're amazing :)
