Musing Mondays (Sept 7)

Musing Mondays (BIG)Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about audio books…


What is your preferred method of listening to audio books? Where and when do you listen to them?


PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.




I’m not a huge audio-book listener, but having found (over the past few months) several podcasts that I enjoy listening to, and then Bryan’s recommendation of the Harry Potter audio books, I’ve been thinking of giving it a go. I guess I’m just doing a little research!

I sometimes listen to podcasts while I’m at work, if there aren’t many students in the library, but mostly listen to them in the car or while I’m in bed, so I anticipate audio books being listened to at the same time.

I’m looking forward to reading your answers.

I usually listen to audio books when I'm too tired to hold a book in my hands!

My thoughts on audiobooks are HERE

And, again, I have to endorse the Harry Potter audiobooks. Jim Dale is a vocal wizard.

Jenners said...

Good question! I can only listen to them if I am driving and no one else talks ... and that never happens so I don't listen to them that often!

Jenny Girl said...

I just started listening to a craft podcast that reads books in the second half. So far so good, but otherwise I don't have the time to listen to audiobooks.
