They’ve become quite popular these days: audio books and podcasts. They are fast replacing radio as listening choice in the car, and it is fun to wear ear buds around the house listening to a new or old favorite book while burning through household chores.
At first, I was hesitant. No way did I consider listening to an audio book count the same as reading a book! And yes, it is not technically reading with my eyeballs. But, I found that the right narrator makes all the difference and I can get through my book pile so much quicker.
And I do love a good story!
My current listen is:
Narrated by Mary Robinette Kowal, this book has been so entertaining. It is warm and witty, the story of a widow starting over in an unlikely space: her own back yard.
As soon as I get my car to run errands I click this on. Ms. Kowal does an outstanding job, and the writing is spectacular.
One of the nice things about Audible is that you can click on a narrator’s name and find other books they have done.
So, dig in to your next book, whether it be off a shelf or in audio form!
