This is so much fun to have Audiobook Week back, thanks Devourer of Books!
Today’s discussion is:
Are you new to audiobooks in the last year?
No, I am not, and it is actually interesting to compare this post with the one I wrote last year.
Have you been listening to them forever but discovered something new this year?
Not forever, but for a few years.
I am more and more appreciating audiobooks and their amazing narrators. Jen has taught me to be careful taking note of and mentioning the name of the narrator, and inserting in my reviews things about the narration itself. I have thus learned to enjoy very much some narrators, I even have my favorite ones now – more about this later in the week!
So maybe we can say I have discovered the narrators and their extraordinary skills.
Since last Audiobook Week, I have listened to 16 titles (compared to 14 last year):
9 between the end of June and Dec 30, 2011
and 7 so far in 2012, which means my yearly average is definitely going to be much higher.
I am currently listening to a non-fiction audiobook, that will actually be my first one this one, so far, they were all fiction.
New times/places to listen?
Nothing has really changed here. My usual times and places to listen to audiobooks are when I do house chores, such as the dishes (this is one of the great advantage NOT to have a dishwasher!), ironing, etc.
And when I paint my rocks.
I think I’m going though to add something new: listening to audiobooks when I weed my garden! I just need to figure out some pouch where I can put my ipod touch in a secure way, where it does not mess up with the tracks when I bend! Any idea is most welcome.
Oh wait! I did finish several CDs of Bring Up The Bodies in the car, on my way to a rockpainting meeting near Arkansas – 10 hours of driving, that was great for audiobooks!
Come back this week, as I will be posting the review of a great audiobook I finished recently, and will also be offering an audiobook to one of my followers!
