Audio books

Back in my old couch potato days, I spent a lot of time reading, on my couch or bed.

Sitting too long is bad for this diabetic granny. So when I started being more active, I started listening to audio books more. I still read the printed word, of course, and thanks to Kindle I can read on the go.

But with audio books, I can listen to great stories when I’m walking, doing housework, or driving. And since I’m old, I don’t always sleep well, so my favorite audio books help me sleep through the night. Some of the narrators are great, others really stink. I bought an Audible book on sale, a Hercule Poirot story, and the narrator trying to capture Poirot’s heavy accent was horrible. I couldn’t understand a word.

I’m currently enjoying Agatha Christie’s The Moving Finger, narrated by Richard E. Grant. Shadow of Night, narrated by Jennifer Ikeda, is another good one (witches, daemons, and vampires in this All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness). And I’m about halfway through the Kinsey Millhone series written by the late Sue Grafton. And of course, I own many of the In Death stories by J.D. Robb, aka Nora Roberts. Susan Ericksen is the narrator of these books, and she’s great!

I’ve had an Audible account for a number of years, but I also recommend checking out your local library for audio books. I connect to my library with the OverDrive app.
