Audio Books - I have Taken the Plunge

 

 

 

I have been reading books, especially romance for a good few years now and as much as i love holding a book in my hand – When the digital alternative became available I embraced it with my whole heart….

I love my E-reader, My Fitzroy…

However in my quest to get some of my reading down and be on track for some of the upcoming releases, books and movies alike, I finally broke down and went audio book….

I have been listening now to Twilight for a day and a half in the car, waiting on the kids, the odd moments i am in a cue and i cannot believe i have never listened to one before….

My friend said i am just lucky, as her first experience, the woman reading the book was so bad – she was really turned off by the experience…  Not sure if i am just lucky, but i took down the name of the reader for future reference – she is awesome….

For those of you using audio – why didn’t you give me a kick,… and for those not listening, you really don’t know what you are missing….

All i can say is…

Happy Listening….

I've been a huge fan of audio books for a while now. Yes, it helps if you have a good reader. There are some older audios that simple aren't worth listening to. But I've listened to so many wonderful books this was. Once you get into it, you'd be amazed who you'll find time to listen, I know listen while I grocery shop, clean the house, do the ironing and when it's a great book, even while I cook dinner (if I'm alone). Have fun and keep on listening!

Hey Mandi....

I am just about a third in but I love it - i can't see what the do-dah is about, it's the voice of a more than average teenager...

That's how teenagers talk - I like what I have heard so far...

I will update you when i am through.

Alaine...

Good to know - it only gets better from here.... I have tried it when cooking, but with my beasties wanting something every five minutes - I had to turn it off - didn't want to miss a thing...

but it's going nicely...

I am really liking Twilight...

I was all about audio books back in the days when all the kids were little and I spent my time playing chauffeur. We'd listen to them in the car. It was about the only way I found time to read back then! Of course, this meant titles appropriate for my kids to hear.

I do the same with the kids and they have the CD's and cassetes, but because i was always on the move - I never went audio - much to my regret..
