So one of the greatest things about my Kindle is the fact that I can listen to audio books on it ~ do you do that? When I bought my Kindle 2 a few years ago, I got a deal if I signed up for Audible ~ little did I know that a few years later I'd have almost 80 books in audio, and be totally hooked!!
I have a long commute to work ~ 67 miles each way ~ so it's perfect to catch up reading I'm behind on, and I discovered for 1st person books that I have a hard time getting into when reading. I adored Karen Marie Moning's Highlander books, and was so upset when she went to the fever books because they were in the 1st person ~ but when I listened to them Audio, I found myself unable to stop, and zoomed through all 5 books ~ even paying primo dollar for a few of them. But it was so worth it! The narration made her writing come alive, and I fell in love with Mac and Barons.............and another series I adore in audio is JD Robb's In Death series ~ I had fallen behind by a few books, so thought, I'll catch up this way. LOL, I got so hooked on Susan Ericksen's narration that I wound up getting every In Death there is, and now I'm working my way through the Nora Roberts stories she's narrated........and I have every one of these books in print, also, that's how good they are.
I never thought I'd be a person to enjoy audio books ~ as I love when I read to immerse myself into the story, and 'live' it in my head ~ but I've actually found if the narration is good, I can do the same thing with a good audio book. I will sometimes sit in my drive after I'm home still listening if I'm at a good point, lol!
So http://www.audible.com/ has become a secret obsession of mine ~ do you have one?
