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?
I do listen to audio books. I like to listen when I am driving and I keep one going in my car all the time. There are two audio books in my post today listing what else I read/listened to in April. I can’t say I have one favorite. While I listen to authors I know I also use audio books to explore new authors. One that comes to mind is A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. That one was a long book and I listened to it when I was making frequent trips to stay with my Mother during her last illness. I just finished listening to the Jacob’s Ladder trilogy by Elizabeth Bear. I stated in my review that while I enjoyed listening to all three I would never have finished them in book form.
I usually check audio books out at my local library. When I am traveling and not near a library I have rented audio books from Cracker Barrel restaurant. You purchase for full price and if you finish in the rental period you turn it in at any other Cracker Barrel and get a refund for most of the price.
