Well, I’ve listened to 35 audiobooks so far this year! That’s way over half of the novels that I’ve finished this year. Without audible and the library, I definitely wouldn’t read as many books. It was able to swap out a lot of my paperback books at paperbackswap, so I do have some that I want to read, but I usually opt for an audiobook first because I find them the most relaxing. I really liked As You Wish and Still Alice because both were read by the author!

What do you think about audiobooks? Do you love it when the author reads the novel?
