Audio books
« on: December 14, 2010, 07:14:43 pm »
Hi,

To sleep better, I hear audio books. Even though I noticed only half the story.

For time I hear "The Sandman" by E.T.A. Hoffmann.

What are you listening to audiobooks and when?

bye Pitti

I do much the same thing, I have an ipod dock near my bed and fall asleep listing to something.  Usualy one of about a dozen Terry Pratchett's I.

Hi Peter.  I mentioned this in another thread a while ago, but I adore listening to Bill Bryson.  I recommended him to Tod back then and he got the 'In a Sunburned Country' and was really glad he did. I recommend all his books, and listening to him on audio, adds to them greatly.  His accent, his wit and his style.

Even though I don't listen to very many audiobooks, I agree with Danee that In a Sunburned Country was a great book.

Audio book, never tried. I guess you can just download them. Sounds like a nice way to fall asleep!

My dad uses audio books a lot, his work involves lots of driving around, so he consistently picks new ones up from the library.
Other than that we just use them on road trips. They can be nice, but for a book I really love, I prefer to just read it.

Audio books keep me from going insane on my 50 mile (each way) commute. The radio stations around here seem to play the same songs over and over again and the DJ's are amusing for about 30 seconds before they become annoying.

I just recently discovered audible on my cell phone (also recently upgraded from a dumb phone it is amazing the world i was missing by carrying that crappy flip phone). It is great not having to worry about the CD's that i was buying and the books are much cheaper than buying them from itunes or as CD's (especially if you do the monthly 'credit' plan)

The only problem I have with audio books is that now not only do you have to like the author, you have to make sure you like the reader as well. I have yet to come across a reader that is a real dud but I have encountered where they change readers part way through a series and it really changes the dynamic from one book to the next.

Just picked up the audio of a fantasy writer I like and listened to it last night. The reader was decent, and (it being a fantasy book), it was somewhat nice to hear the names pronounced as I will assume the writer meant for them to be. Mostly I'll listen to school stuff on my player, but yeah, audio books are nice too.

This is only vaguely related, but I wanted to get a copy of a book I'd read as a kid on my Kindle. It was called The Lost Years of Merlin by T. A. Baron. They had it in the Kindle store, but only the audio book version. Otherwise, you have to buy a physical copy. I thought it was odd that they'd provide the audio book for Kindle users but not the book itself.

I listened to an audiobook of Lois Lowry's newest book Son this weekend and I really enjoyed it which was quite surprising to me. I knew the book would be good, but I didn't think that I'd like the audio version.
