Audiobook are you currently reading/you read most recently: I just finished Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri, narrated by Sarita Choudhury and Ajay Naidu. I’m planning to start reading Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich, narrated by Lorilei King.
Impressions?: Unaccustomed Earth was wonderful. I have high hopes for Sizzling Sixteen, although in a completely different way.
How long you’ve been listening to audiobooks: I downloaded my first audiobook from audible on 8/5/2005 and haven’t really looked back since. My listening has definitely increased since then!
First audiobook you ever listened to: The Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie R. King (narrated by Jenny Sterlin). I’ve been hooked on the series and on audiobooks ever since.
Favorite audiobook title: I’m either going to have to go with the above mentioned The Beekeeper’s Apprentice (which I’ve now listened to many, many times) or copy Jen’s answer of The Help (my top overall book of last year).
Favorite narrator: Sorry, I’m going to have to pass on this. As long as a narrator has a pleasant voice and is a competent reader, they probably will be fine with me.
How do you choose what to listen to versus read? I have a huge backlog of paper books to read. I have a very, very small backlog of audio books. When I want or need to read a specific book (a recommendation or for book club) I check if it is available in audio, If so, I’ll probably listen to it. When I’m done with a book, I see if there is something in my stash I feel like reading, and if not, I’m off to search my libraries downloadable titles.
