Current/most recent audiobook: The House at Riverton by Kate Morton, narrated by Caroline Lee
Impressions: The story is not as engaging as the author Kate Morton novel I listened to this year (The Forgotten Garden). Also, the narrator had a cold halfway through the production, and her nasally voice made me laugh to myself. Enjoyable but not wonderful, and I will not be listening to her third novel.
Current favorite audiobook: Bossypants by Tina Fey, narrated by Tina Fey
One narrator who always makes you choose audio over print: James Marsters – I have no desire to read the Harry Dresden series when I can listen to him all day long.
Genre you most often choose to listen to: Mystery/Historical fiction – It’s the whole series thing.
If given the choice, you will always choose audio when: at work. It’s better than listening to music in helping to drown out cubicle noise and makes the day slip past SO quickly.
If given the choice, you will always choose print when: in bed. I tend to read until I fall asleep and find it much easier to remember where I last stopped concentrating in print than via audio. Plus, it is a lot easier to flip the pages back to the spot rather than having to forward or rewind my iPod.
Definitely! It is worth the multiple mentions!
BOSSYPANTS is a must-listen if there ever was one!
I have a corner cubicle, so audios work better than music for drowning out every single conversation that occurs. And I do agree reading print is better than audios as well for calming my mind. It's my favorite bedtime ritual, one I cannot sleep without performing.
I think any woman can appreciate it. Tina Fey does a great job with narration and is simply brilliant.
That's exactly why I read before bed. Audios don't allow me to do that at all.
LOL! I feel like a broken record because I keep mentioning it!
You will definitely enjoy BOSSYPANTS. That's too bad about the Dresden files. Hopefully, you can get your hands on a copy of it soon.
James Marsters is SO yummy! At the beginning of the third audio, Jim Butcher makes mention of the fact that the audiobooks are so popular because of the narrator. 😉
Great minds think alike…
Lots of mentions of Bossypants today…need to think about adding it to my list 🙂

Okay, I must pick up Bossypants soon. Your responses to when you prefer audio and print are the same for me. I love listening to them at work. The location of my cube means I hear everything! It is so nice to drown out that noise. I also always read before bed. It seems to calm my mind better than anything else.

I bet I would love Bossypants on audio too! I need to go find that now!
My recent post Audiobook Week- Single Narrator vs Multiple Narrators
I have to read every night before I go to bed – it's the only way I can shut my mind off from thinking about everything else going on in my life.
My mid-week meme can be found here.
I feel like a broken record in your comments this week, but I HAVE to try James Marsters narration soon.

I LOVED Bossypants on audio! And I have been meaning to listen to The Dresden Files (which I have no intention of reading) because James Marsters reads them!! Ahh.. we Michelles think alike sometimes. 🙂
Here's my audio book week post!
