I enjoyed reading Heather J's recent post about her love for audiobooks, as well as the interesting comments from others about when and where, why and why not they love audio books. I don't know what I'd do without them at this point; they've become such an enormous part of my daily routine. Mind-numbing chores like folding laundry and doing dishes become much more fun when someone's telling me a fascinating tale while I work. And my entire family enjoys listening to stories together in the car when we are driving long distances.
Last week National Public Radio's Morning Edition featured a short piece narrated by Neil Gaiman about audiobooks. You can read and/or listen to it here - and don't neglect to scroll down to the bottom, where there are other links relating to Neil Gaiman and David Sedaris, another favorite writer and audiobook narrator of mine who is interviewed by Gaiman in this segment. Enjoy!
