This is so much fun to have Audiobook Week back, thanks Devourer of Books, and thanks for asking the same questions as last year, that sure helps to write my post quicker, lol!
Today’s discussion is:
Are you new to audiobooks in the last year?
No, I am not, but I have fun every year, discovering new titles to add to my TBL [To Be Listened to!] list.
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 amazed at the number of extremely good narrators. What’s new now for me is that when I have a book on my TBR, I look at reviews of the audiobook version, and choose to listen to it if my listening schedule is free and the audiobook supposed to be fantastic.
I also believe I have been listening to much longer audiobooks recently.
Since last Audiobook Week, I have listened to 16 titles (just like last year):
10 between the end of June and Dec 30, 2011 and 6 so far in 2012.
I am currently listening to a non-fiction audiobook: Eighty Days: Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland’s History-Making Race Around the World
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, weeding the garden, etc.
And when I paint my rocks.
Again this year, we listened to an audiobook on our way to a rockpainting meeting near Arkansas – 10 hours of driving. I think the tradition is on now; this time, we listened to Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
Come back this week, as I will be posting the review of 3 great audiobooks I finished recently.
HAS THIS AUDIOBOOK YEAR
