  1. My favorite audiobook is probably my first: the Harry Potter series! My friend had them on her iPod and we'd listen to them on road trips.

  5. Sadly I abhor audio books. You can ask my fam I HATE read alouds and having a book read to me usually results in my not liking the book no matter how good it might actually be.

  6. I don't really like audiobooks... They take longer to listen to than reading the book... I don't always like the accents they try to use either to separate the characters... The last one I listened to was Burned by P.C and Kristin Cast...

  17. I haven't listened to audiobooks in years so I am not a fair judge. As of now my favorite audio book is Bambi. I think Thumper has the most adorable voice and he gives great advice.

  20. I've never actually listened to an audiobook. I have to little girls and can't afford to delve into an audiobook, although I know it would be heavenly.

  28. I LOVED Shatter Me!! I thought the strike though sound would be annoying, but it oddly added to the story. I also loved the voice of the narrator! I love audio books, and wish my commute was longer so I didn't have to think up places to go so I can listen! :P

  29. I'll be honest, I don't really listen to audio books but I did enjoy Kelley Armstrong's The Summoning because she sounded the way Chloe sounded in my head :)

  30. I listened to my first audiobook Another Faust not to long ago i liked it

  31. I seriously can't choose between this two: Will Grayson Will Grayson by John Green, and Thirteen reasons why by Jay Asher. The voices, I mean actors who read the books were amazing in both audiobooks. John's was sad and funny and thoughtful and awesome at the same time. Jay was very sad but still so awesome. I can't choose :)

  34. I've only listened to two audiobooks; Winterfair Gifts by Lois McMaster Bujold and The Cat of Bubastes by G.A. Henty. Both were pretty good. :)

  35. I also am not fond of audiobooks. I get too distracted and have a hard time following them.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I've never listened to one. I've noticed that when people start reading out loud from anything in class I start to zone out and go off to my own little world. Besides, I prefer the feel and soft musty smell from a book compared to anything else people use now a days.

  37. The only audiobooks I've listened were Stargate audiobooks by Big Finish Audio. I really liked them, it's like the TV series only without images. I'm really interested in more audiobooks, as I like to knit and they would be perfect to pass the time.

  38. I only listened to one, The City of Bones, so I have to say that is my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I haven't listened to audiobooks in a long time! But I always enjoyed Sarah Dessen's books on tape. They are narrated from a first person perspective and are usually pretty introspective, so it really works in an audiobook scenario

  40. I have never tried reading audio books. Not because i don't like them just because I've never found the need to read them... But recently i have a book on hold in the library that is an audio book because they did not have the normal book. so i will get a chance to try them soon...

  44. I have never listened to an audio book, or at least haven't listened to one since I was in first grade. I would love to though and have been thinking I need to get one and try it out on one of our many long road trips

  45. I haven't listened to that many audiobooks yet, but I think my favorite has to be Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld. Alan Cumming is the narrator and I just love him. He's so hilarious and is awesome at accents.
