Have you heard the news? This week is Audiobook Week, as hosted by Jen from Devourer of Books! All week long, she will be hosting giveaways and celebrating the awesomesauce that are audiobooks. I hope to participate on most of the discussion questions and at least one or two of the reviews. My goal is to finish at least one more audiobook this week as well.
Without further ado, I give you the first discussion question!
Ideas: Why do you like them, why did you first try them, why have you NOT tried them, etc.
I just recently started to listen to audiobooks. I did it because so many other bloggers were raving about them and how much more they read because of them. I started with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, moved on to David Baldacci’s Divine Justice, and was soon addicted. See, I listen at work. It helps drown out the noise in cubicle land, helps pass the time when I am bored or when I am working on something mindless. I listened to one audiobook during a road trip one weekend and found that the time on the road all but disappeared. It makes the boredom of driving by yourself seem a thing of the past. I have not quite gone around to listening while doing household chores, but I’m guessing that this is the next step. I have checked out three audiobooks from the library and downloaded two or three from Audible and cannot wait to get to them all. If you have not added audiobooks to your reading repoirtoire, I highly recommend them!
However, this is one person’s opinion. What are your thoughts on audiobooks? Share them here and on Jen’s site. It’s time to celebrate audiobooks!!
