Devourer of Books, so you can pop over there to find out what is going on for the week. This week is going to get pretty busy for me with my son getting married on Saturday, but I can at least participate in today's discussion.
Here is our topic for today:
Are you new to audiobooks in the last year? Have you been listening
to them forever but discovered something new this year? Favorite titles?
New times/places to listen? This is your chance to introduce yourself
and your general listening experience.
I love audiobooks! I started listening to audiobooks about five years ago when one day I finally got tired of listening to the same junk on the radio. We moved about ten miles out of town so I was finding myself in the car for at least a half hour a day. One day when I stopped at the local library I noticed the nice audiobook section they had and my love for listening to books had bloomed!
Here are some of my favorite audiobooks. You should be able to click on the title if you would like to read my review:
Backseat Saints by Joshilyn Jackson
Still Missing by Chevy Stevens
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Bone Man's Daughters by Ted Dekker
You may have been wondering why you don't see Mockingjay on this list yet. Well, I've been holding off on listening to this one because I just don't want it to end!
I know that many of you listen to audiobooks on your Ipod, but I have decided that since I only listen to them in my car I would stick with the archaic cd's. This has on occasion been a point of frustration for me as I have checked out a few audio's from the library that were so badly scratched and damaged that I missed most of the story.
Since my cd player in my car works properly this is the mode that I prefer to use right now. It does act funny every now and then, as it doesn't always want to eject my cd's. So I am waiting for the day that I will not be able to just pop a cd in there anymore. I have an Ipod, and know how to put audiobooks on it, but I just don't want to use that for audiobooks. It already takes me long enough to get in and out of my car with all of my junk, and adding an Ipod to my routine will just slow me down. I have a feeling I will be forced to do this in the near future though.
So what are your thoughts on audiobooks?
