Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Each week we will get a fun reading related question to answer. This week’s musing asks:
Do you listen to audiobooks? Why or why not?
I do listen to audiobooks, and I enjoy them quite a bit, though I prefer to read my books. But when I drive from place to place, I love having an audiobook going in the CD player because then I can still be “reading” even when I am driving. And if I have to drive long distances, audiobooks keep me awake better than music does because I become engrossed in the book instead of listening to songs and lyrics I have heard a thousand other times on the radio.
A downside to audiobooks is having a bad reader or a reader you don’t really like. Very seldom though have I not liked a reader. One of my favorite audiobooks because of the reader is The Graveyard Book because Neil Gaiman performs the books himself and he does an outstanding job.
