Audio Books--Do you buy them? Loan them from your local library? Or are you solely a reader of the written word?
I received an email from a reader who brought it to my attention about providing the availability of audio books from our fabulous authors. Believe me, I didn’t mean to overlook this popular source of media; it just didn’t occur to me….my bad.
I must admit that I don’t do a lot of audio books. In fact, I can count on one hand how many I’ve actually listened to. It’s just not something that I can fit in my life. The times that I HAVE listened are when I am traveling via car on a long trip. Then, I love to listen to my favorite authors.
So, what makes a great audio book? Is the actual book? Or is it a combination of the book, and how the narrarator interprets the book? Do you prefer a male voice for the male characters? Female voice for the female characters?
And just how does one listen to these great books if they’re not driving down the road in their car? I really, REALLY would love to hear from you about this…because I am always looking for different ways to get my fix of books.
That being said—here are a few of my fave audio books that I have listened to:
