Are you new to audiobooks in the last year?
If you have suffered through this story before you have my permission to fast forward. I discovered audiobooks when I was desparately seeking something to make being on the road for a job more tolerable. I am not the greatest car traveler to begin with but you pop in an audiobook and I am like a dog and cannot wait to get in the car and go for a ride.
Have you been listening to them forever but discovered something new this year?
Definitely not new to them this year but I do pay more attention than ever to the narrator and the production value. I owe that that change in listening to the twitter universe.
So this is my least faovite question to ponder. Usually the one I am listening to is my favorite and different situations or people bring to life an audiobook and for that moment that is a favorite.
So I am going to list some favorites of the moment now that consist of listens from the last twelve months:
I was surprised how much I enjoyed this listen. First I was surprised to be caught up in a Stephen King novel but I was. The story captivated me and I was glad I had a chance to listen to this story. Had I not listened to the audiobbok I do not think I could have read the traditional book.
As far as my inner geek this is the audiobook winner on that front. I have listened to this a total of three times and now I am thinking I must go back for another helping. The author’s narration is so elequent with his english accent it is a pleasure to listen to those things I should have taken in while in science courses over the years. For young or old the whole audiobook is a teaching moment.
The last two enteries are a new genre for me and that is bio/memoir. I listened to three that were tops for me:
The delightful Carrie Fisher’s life part 2 as read by Carrie Fisher. Her timing is perfect and lets face it she knows the material. While it was so sad at times I thought I could not go on the joy that you feel is well worth it.
It was a fitting way to celebrate the years of All My Children with none other than the star of the show Susan Lucci. If you are a fan of Lucci or the show, may it rest in peace, this is a do not miss listen.
Last up in this category is Andy Cohen’s hilarious MOST TALKATIVE. From his early years to being a top programming guy at BravoTV this guy can tell a story. Just so happens that his own stories are much more interesting that most of us
New times/places to listen?
Until recently I only listened to them in the car however this year they came inside the house. I have them playing in the washroom when I am getting ready sometimes. Additionally, I am working at a summer project where listening to them during the day is acceptable. I think I am in heaven everyday I go in.
