Devourer of books, http://www.devourerofbooks.com/2010/06/audiobook-week-info-and-daily-discussion-topics/, is hosting an audiobook week and I have loved to read everyone's posts about it. In particular, Amanda at Patchwork of Books.
I am a huge audiobook fan have been since I started this job 10 years ago. I started with them on cassettes, and now I get them on CD's. For these I go to the library faithfully every couple of weeks. I usually get enough to last me three weeks.
I listen to them in the car. My commute is usually about 45 minutes each way and it drove me crazy listening to the radio! Someone suggested I check out an audiobook and I have been hooked ever since. I have read some where they have different people reading different parts of the book, it is almost like listening to a play or an old radio program.
So my biggest debate has been if I should count them towards my total of books read. My husband said I shouldn't since I didn't actually read it. I thought this would really help me reach my goal for the year, but decided not to count them since he was right I didn't actually "read" them. Maybe next year I will up my goal and include them, something to think about.
