As much of a bookworm as I am (and I am), I've never listened to a book on tape or CD.
I was at the library today and decided it was about time to give one a try.
I'll be honest - I'm skeptical. I've been to quite a few author's readings, and I have a hell of a time staying focused...guess I'm one of those visual people. I always hope they'll bring slides. Or maybe puppets.
Still, I'd love to be able to fill a roadtrip with a book rather than listening to the radio. Or how great would it be to want stretch my workout because I just can't stop before I hear the end of a chapter?
I chose Native Tongue by Carl Hiaasen - I had The Great Gatsby in my hand (I've always meant to read it, and thought I could kill two life list birds with one stone) - but since I fear my short auditory attention span could be a problem, I thought I'd go for a page turner.
I loaded it onto my iPod & will try it out tomorrow in my workout.
Anybody out there a fan of books on tape or CD?
