MAILBOX MONDAY… is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.
April Host: Cindy’s Love Of Books
I only received 3 books this week:
MUSING MONDAYS… is a weekly event where MizB will ask a book/reading-related question, and you answer with your own thoughts on the topic.
Do you listen to audio books? If not, why not? And, if so, what has been one of your favorites, so far?
I rarely listen to audio books, but plan to start listening to them more. I have a cd player on my treadmill, but usually watch tv instead of listening to an audio book. I recently bought a portable cd player so that I could listen to them no matter what room I’m in. Of the ones that I have listened to, my favorites have been by David Sedaris.
I think the main reason I don’t listen to them very much is that it bugs me when it’s a woman reading it and she deepens her voice when it’s a man talking. The same for a male reader who tries to sound like a woman. Plus, it takes less concentration for me to read a book, since I usually listen to audio books when I’m doing something else, and when I read I book, that’s all I’m doing.
