This week’s musing asks…
Do you listen to audiobooks? If not, why not? And, if so, what has been one of your favorites, so far?
Audiobooks are great for the commute to work, so YES I listen to books on CD. My job doesn’t require a lot of travel, but the drive is certainly better when listening to a book. There’s no way to name just one, so I’ll mention a few here.
I especially like it when the author is also the narrator – thank you, Augusten Burroughs. His books Dry, A Wolf at the Table and Possible Side Effects are especially good on CD. The author’s personality came through so well in his narration that I could hear a million of his memoirs, and that’s about how many there are. 🙂
My favorite, though, has to be David Sedaris. Anything David Sedaris! He is hilarious and his books are hilarious, but hearing him read them is even better with his distinctive voice. It’s right up there with hearing him speak in person or on This American Life on NPR. If you’ve never heard it, google The Santaland Diaries. You will not be disappointed!
Thanks again, MizB at shouldbereading.
