Hi! My name is Joan and I am a new blogger. It seems like an exciting way to be heard in the literary world. A little about me. I belong to three books clubs that meet every six weeks. (Fortunately not on the same week.) So I am usually reading or listening to books at all times. I have a book going in my car, one on my kitchen stereo, one on my smart phone and a real paper book by my night table. It can get rather confusing at times, especially when I am listening in my car and I can't wait to find out what will happen. Hence the car CD comes into the kitchen and bumps the other CD out, meaning I have to remember where I was on the last CD.
My last book on CD was The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce. Before that one it was State of wonder by Ann Patchett. The great thing about audiobooks is the fact that one will stay with an audiobook longer than a regular book. In other words, if a book doesn't move you, the audio book might because of the narrator. A narrator can make or break an audiobook. One example is the narrator Rosalyn Lander. She is a narrator for British regency romance novels. Her voice is lovely for the female characters but irritating when she voices her male characters. However, I am used to her style and the voice changes do not bother me anymore. I hope to use this blog to voice my enthusiasm for audiobooks. Please feel free to add your comments as you are so moved.
