I started listening to an audiobook last week and I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. It’s a different way to experience a book. I think certain passages stuck out to me more than they would have if I had read the book. I always thought that if I listened to audiobooks I’d have a hard time focusing on what the narrator was saying, but that wasn’t the case at all. I was so wrapped up in the story. Right after I finished Reality Boy I started Dracula. I’m listening to a version that has a full cast, including Alan Cumming and Tim Curry. I just started the fourth chapter and I’m so excited to keep going!
Of course, as much as I love audiobooks right now, I will not stop reading books. I absolutely love the experience of sitting down with a book… it’s one of my favorite things to do and that will never change.
