Okay, so I’ve tried listening to a book on CD before (a few years ago in college). To complete the nerd visual, here’s the setup: a roommate and I both loved to read and tended to stay up until 3 or so in the morning (no matter what day of the week) reading our books in the common room of our suite. I had started teaching her how to knit so we thought we could combine the two activities by buying a book on CD to listen to while we knit. So we went to Barnes and Noble and found a book that we both found interesting. Well. The narrator had an accent (I can’t remember if it was Scottish or Irish, and don’t get me wrong, I LOVE both of those accents), but he didn’t create voices for the different characters and we soon lost track of the story. We gave up on it not too long into it. And I haven’t tried another audiobook since.
Recently, I read a post from Mandy at Adventures in Borkdom about The History of English Literature and after reading her review I thought, why not give audiobooks another shot? So I decided to listen to this particular one, and so far it’s pretty interesting.
Now I must return to the book (and work).
Happy reading (or listening)!
