Now that they are available digitally, I’m starting to really like audiobooks. Back in college I checked a few of them out of the library but they were abridged and they were recorded on a box full of cassette tapes. Now I can listen to them on my iPod while driving to work. The main things that I like is that the person reading the book usually acts out the scenes better than I would have and I don’t have to try and figure out how to pronounce some character’s weird name every time I come across it.
