I’ve been doing this new thing where I check out audiobooks from the library. My New Year’s resolution to ride the subway at least a couple days a week has fallen *ahem* by the wayside. For many reasons. My laziness being just one of them. In place of that precious extra 1.5 hours reading time that my subway commute affords, I figured I’d let someone else read to me. It has certainly made even Atlanta driving — dare I say it? — something of a pleasure.
Right now I’m listening to The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. Have you read it? Do you ever listen to audiobooks? What are some of your favorites (books and narrators)? I can see how you could become loyal to certain narrators, seeing as you’re entrusting them with bringing the characters to life. I wonder if Ira Glass has narrated any books. ;)
